We were looking around the area and stumbled upon this B&B in Montemagno-Calci. The building has an impressive older facade, walkway and staircase leading to the front entrance. The interior has been refurbished with all the modern amenities including a very comfortable bed, large bathroom. and beautiful furnishings. The view from our window looked down on the valley below. In the far distance, you can make out the Leaning Tower in Pisa. The owners are enthusiastic, friendly, courteous, generous and extremely capable. (Our breakfast was delivered right on time, with a great selection.)
Be certain to poke around the village. People were extremely friendly and the local restaurant is about an 8 second walk to the right of the B&B as you leave the building. My wife and I stopped in around 9 pm on Friday evening, and the place was bustling with locals unwinding for the weekend. The meal was unpretentious, inexpensive and superb.
In summary, the B&B Antica Toscana and the village of Montemagno above Calci are both high on our list of wonderful vacation memories. We look forward to returning there soon!
