Tucked away in the hills of Siena, this one year old B&B really is a fantastic find. It is rustic Tuscan down to the bone, if this is what you are after you certainly won't be disappointed! Equipped with a large pool over-looking the beautiful city of Siena, after a long, hot day walking within the old city walls this...

We stayed at Podere La Strega for one night in October of 2011, and overall our experience was very good. In our 12 day tour of Tuscany, we were mainly staying in hotels in city/town centers, so wanted to try something different in Siena. The B&B itself was lovely, and very much what we expected. The property is large and...

This lovely looking home is located in the end of a narrow road in what seems to be the middle of nowhere. Our GPS didn't even recognize the area. It was very difficult to find the place at first, and there aren't any prominent signs. You just have to reach the end of the road and it's the last house...

After a six hour drive from the Amalfi coast, arrived to a note on the gate with a telephone number to call. That number wouldn't connect so we called Booking.Com to get them to check it out. They - initially - couldn't help but eventually two hours later the owner was located. We were shown an upstairs room that had...

My wife and I had a great experience. The accommodation is well maintained, and clean. We stayed in the Rosa room, which overlooks the swimming pool, with a great view of the Siena city centre. Originally a house more than 500 years, owned by the family, was renovated to provide the accomodation service. The host, Letizia, was very friendly and...

The B&B is just outside Siena. We arrived by bus to Siena and departed by train and used taxis to get around. Taxi in to town was around 10 euros. Most people staying here had had rental cars, but taxis were fine for us. The nice things about this B&B was the pretty rooms, the wonderful place were we had...

The property was just outside of Siena in the countryside and the perfect base from which to explore all of Tuscany and to take a day trip to Florence. It was quiet and relaxing with attention to detail and design at a good price point; we would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.

The rooms are very beautiful and comfortable. In the yard there is a simming pool with an amazing view on Siena. And it takes only 5 minutes to get to the old city by car. Letizia, the hostess, is very nice and sweet and always ready to help. All in all the hotel is very stylish and comfotable. If we...

This house in the hills a few miles outside of Siena has been beautifully decorated, our room was pretty and comfortable and the shared lounge and kitchen areas were well laid out also.
