We stayed in a duplex apartment (effectively the pool house) at San Lorenzo a Linari for five nights in late August 2013.
The hotel is housed in a beautiful old manor house set on high ground with pleasant views over the countryside south of Siena, while still being within a 15 minute drive or 30 minute brisk cycle to the city walls.
The room was very large, if dated in presentation - I gather the resort was developed in the late 1980s, and the fitout and furnishings reflects this, but without being in any way tatty or unserviceable. The bed was comfortable and storage space plentiful. There was no accessible wi-fi connection in the room, but, having had to spend a day working while on holiday, the beautiful main courtyard and colonnade (where a perfect signal was to be found) was a far more appealing space to spend time.
Breakfast, served outside, next to the pool, was fresh, generous and I found myself looking forward to it every morning.
The staff were all charming and helpful.
Overall, a fantastic place, whose minor shortfalls in terms of physical presentation were more than made up for by its overwhelming charm and the beautiful setting.
