“most unusual setting”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

We were driving through travelling from Siena to Monteriggioni, no reservations booked in advance, and bingo there it was: this totally unexpected accomodation nestling "inside" the medieval town walls!! An elegantly furnished suite all brand new interiors in the most unusual setting.
The owners also run an equally unusual theatre/restaurant adjacent to the lodge. Unfortunately the restaurant only opens in conjunction with a show/cabaret so we couldn't try it but would almost tempted to stay on an extra night to experience it!!
There is a cooking area incorporated in the living area which only had one huge pot and little else which so warming a cup of milk for breakfast was a giggle .... so definitely recommend you eat out!

Room Tip: we slept in the annex because the main building was fully booked.

Great place to spend a stay in Tuscany run by a lovely young couple and so conveniently located just 10 minutes from Poggibonsi and close to the motorways, trains and buses. We hired a car in Pisa and were able to do day trips to Assisi, Cortona, Pienza and Montepulciano. From Poggibonsi we caught the train into Florence for the day and the bus to Siena another day and drove other short trips, such as Montereggioni, Volterra and San Gimignano. Palazzo Alle Mura is located in part of the old walls of Staggia so our view was across to the remains of the old castle, where we were able to do a guided tour, and also the park. There is plenty of street parking and everyone in town was very friendly. There is a great little supermarket and two restaurants both very good service and the food was great and very reasonably priced. Our apartment was very comfortable with everything supplied with the exception of the groceries, so we were able to eat in some nights testing out our Italian cooking skills. Washing machine, dryer etc all available so we were also able to catch up on the washing. This was the 2nd stay here in 2 years for my travelling companion and she will revisit I am sure very soon. They also operate a Theatre Restaurant which is within the same building, during there winter season, bringing in actors from Florence and Siena - all in Italian of course. Definitely worth a stay if you want your own space.

My wife and I stayed at the Palazzo alle Mura for 8 days in the spring of 2004.

It is ideally situated between Siena and Florence, right in the heart of Tuscany.

We had a rental car, and we used this hotel/apartment as a home base to visit the many, many, beautiful medieval towns in the area.

Now to the accomodation itself: This is not a hotel per se, but more like renting an apartment for the length of your stay. For us it was simply perfect. Free parking, beautiful rooms, a stunning building, a very nice young woman to deal with (who speaks several languages) whose family owns this property.

Overall it was an excellent decision for us, and we recommend the Palazzo alle Mura without hesitation.

Palazzo alle Mura is right on the edge/end of the villiage of Staggia near Poggibonsi. It is actually on the main circular one way road of the villiage. The parking offered is street parking at a couple of spots nearby and easy to get. The villiage has a good supermarket as well and a couple of restaurants.

The rooms are above average, reasonably clean, pretty quiet despite the road running right around the building on two sides. The apartment was reasonably well appointed with good showers. The kitchen comprised a bar fridge and stove. It did not have a kettle or toaster - only a very average toaster oven.

The air conditioning cost 0.80 euros per hour to run so if you are going in peak summer factor it into your budget along with the 35 euros to clean the room and 8 euros each for sheets/towels - it does add up. You think they could do the maths and work up an all inclusive price.

The Palazzo alle Mura is well positioned with both Siena and Florence close via the motorway and San Gimignano and Monteriggioni nearby as well.
