“We had an excellent stay here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Very nice place in a great spot with amazing views. The restaurant was top notch. We ate there all three nights. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and breakfast was excellent as well. We would stay here again for sure.

We were able to book a room with very short notice. The view from the room has a wonderful view of the Tuscany country side. The half board room rate is very reasonable and comes with wine and drinks. The food is served with friendly staff.The food is good and the breakfast has a wide choice to choose. Keep up the good wordk.

The hotel is situated in an old Tuscany farmhouse. The room we had was very big with a living, a kitchen and a separate bedroom. The view from your room is all what you expect from Tuscany with the beautifull hills and colors. The hotel has a nice pool and a good restaurant which is a bit on the high end of the price range. The hotel is located in the beautiful surroundings but there are no bars, restaurants or terraces in the vicinity. The staff was polite and correct but not very friendly.A good hotel for a good price

Bosco is a complete base for a more extended stay. Very well situated a half hour south of Siena, near Montalcino (for Brunello fans), 45 north of the Amiata region, to this avid cyclist it offered the best of access to a huge variety of lightly travelled, beautiful, and challenging biking routes. The views are idyllic, the rooms well-equipped and generally well-serviced, and the dining room is good. Food is well prepared and served in a lovely, spacious, and extremely welcoming dining room. Wine list is good; in addition to the hotel's own label -- which, at 15 E per bottle, is a good and quite acceptable bargain. My personal day's agenda was extremely well-supported with breakfast available early and a very pleasant terrace on which to unwind in the late afternoon. Dining staff were extremely attentive and accommodating of all my needs. Hardly a complaint, but the food choices were a bit limited. Not a problem as Buonconvento, Trequanda, Asciano are all within very easy driving distance and offering an exceptional array of high end dining. Wireless access is from the dining room, terrace, and reception only which was a bit challenging if one wanted to compose late night emails from the comfort of one's room. Priced very reasonably.

I have gone a few times to this place, and the food is excellent, a touch of international with some real traditional Tuscan fare, done in a way that you only find at grandma's. Absolutely recommended in the summer, when the terrace allows for a very relaxing dinner outside.

Modern day castleand winery nestled in the beautiful Tucan countryside. Large clean rooms, friendly staff, nice views. super value with great food at the restaurant. Loved their house made wine. One of the reviews was not kind - but it seems that the hotel took it to heart ... the towels were new the rooms were very clean including the shower which worked great (yes it is small) the Sky TV was included. Very relaxing atmosphere. We were there late April 2012.
We would love to return.

I found my stay most wonderful and can't believe complaints about there being no airconditioning as this is Tuscany and as we don't use air conditioning in our NYC apartment we didn't mind the air at all. The pool has a view onto a small valley where we spent a lot of time and the food was out of this world as we understand they get all the ingredients locally and is cooked by the owner fresh every day. The service was friendly and the room was much bigger than expected compared to other places we recommened. The only con we felt was that thé bathrooms were small with no bathtubs. I highly recommend this place to people who lové nature and à location with personality as they also make their own Wine on thé property, its very spécial!..

The Country Resort & Restaurant Bosco della Spina is situated 20 km south away from Siena, between Maremma’s woods and “crete senesi”.

The resort counts with 14 accommodations: apartments from 2 to 8 people for a total of 64 beds for short stays and also for just one night with hotel-services (like an hotel daily cleaning and breakfast are included).Either in the old cellars, in the covered terraces with their pergola or in the extremely comfortable and relaxing restaurant with its central fireplace, the excellent conventional cuisine can be appreciated. Cuisine, that follows with tradition and great care the classic Tuscan recipes with products coming directly from the owner´s family orchard (just a few meters away from the restaurant). Also very enjoyable the Tuscan red wine from their own production or either another wine from their restaurant-cellar that have been selected among the best Tuscany wines.You can also relax in the silence of swimming pool, on the terraces or in the gardens where a lovely Tuscany landscape can be appreciated with the sound of the refreshing fountains. Otherwise you can engage in gastronomic and cultural excursions because the hotel is near Siena but close to Montalcino, Pienza, Monteriggioni and Chianti area too.The hotel facilities counts also a wine tasting hall, a library and 2 conference rooms full equipped (from 30 to 100 pax) where it is possible to combine a relaxing stay with a business meeting.The familiar but also professional hospitality will ensure you a pleasant stay and our staff will help you planning your tours and excursions whenever you wish. ... more   less
