My husband won this trip, and we could not have been more pleasantly surprised. We're normally not B&B people, but this was just wonderful. The food was delicious, the grounds were lovely, the room was great, and the entire stay was so enjoyable. Nadia, our hostess, was pleasant and welcoming and gave us tips on the towns we needed to visit! Christian gave us the tour of the vineyards and it was eye opening. The wine tasting experience was one of the best memories of our stay, along with the cooking class with Valentina! So much fun to meet so many interesting people from all over the globe. Highly recommend!! Ray and Diane Traube
We planned a destination wedding at Country Inn Casa Mazzoni and we couldn't be happier how everything turned out. The host, Angelo, along with the staff create an fun and relaxing and even romantic atmosphere, perfect for your wedding, family gathering or just a vacation. Angelo assisted us with food, flowers, cake, and even a Ferrari rental for the wedding....We planned a destination wedding at Country Inn Casa Mazzoni and we couldn't be happier how everything turned out.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at agriturismo marcianno. Our first night we had dinner at the agriturismo. Before dinner, Christen had done a wine tour with us and was very knowledgeable about the wines. He explained the different regions. We then had the pleasure of doing wine pairings with our dinner. Nadia was an excellent hostess and was extremely warm and helpful. We felt like we were visiting with family. We walked to Siena from the agriturismo and took a taxi back. Strongly recommend doing it. Will definately recommend this agriturismo and will return in the future. Thank you for making this a delightful experience.
This is by far the best place to stay in Siena. Our hosts were so helpful and kind. The breakfast was handmade every morning which is amazing! Our rooms were great. The vineyard was beautiful, wine was very good and I fell in love with the entire house. Only 1 suggestion: make a smoking section so those who don't care to smell cigarettes don't have to.
Staying here was a wonderfully unique experience in the best sense of the phrase. Beautiful countryside, lovely building, no expense was spared to update the vast kitchen which had a loft built above it. Our room was inviting, comfortable and clean. Décor almost mission or New Mexico-style. Modern bathroom. Delicious assortment of breakfast foods including cheese, fruits, various tarts and pastries… almost everything homemade. We decided to have dinner there which was additional but was an experience in itself… a 5-course meal, each course paired with a different wine. Most of the ingredients and wines are their own production. Host Christian was very gracious and cook Meghan explained every dish and wine pairing to a tee.
I cannot say enough about Le Caggiole... It was the most beautiful property with amazing views of the countryside of Tuscany. Our room the Massaia was more like a house instead of a room... we had our own kitchen with a beautiful bay window that opened up to the view of the countryside. The bathroom was spacious The bedroom had windows that opened up to the same view. The property is beauitful.. it was so much more than we expected. Now, on to the best part... the owners of Le Caggiole..Giacomo, his beautiful wife Cristiana, their adorable little girl and of course his mother nonna Ornella... oh, how we enjoyed meeting these amazing beautiful people. Upon arrival we were greeted by Giacomo, who was more than accommodating and helpful with anything we needed... and he was cooking this most incredible sauce for dinner that evening... and if I tell you my mouth watered just by smelling it...The property is perfectly located ... very close to the center of town and all the shops and restaurants and attractions. The next morning, of course breakfast inside the main building with a beautiful wood table for 20 or so... very big, and in the family for centuries... the best part of breakfast was nonna Ornella... I fell in love instantly with this amazing woman... she hand makes all the pastries and cakes every morning at 6am... breakfast was fabulous, with homemade honey (oh, I didn't mention.. but they have their own bees who produce this delicious wonderful honey...) coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, milk, etc...etc... etc... I cannot express how gracious they treated us... Then, one of the best part of our stay, was the cooking class!!! OMG.... we made homemade tortelli di patate... We stayed for 8 nights... and honestly I could have stayed for months... upon leaving we felt we were leaving family... I highly recommend Le Caggiole to anyone who wants to experience the beauty, tastes and warmness of Tuscany.
My husband and I stayed at Tenuta la Santissima for two nights. We initially booked only one night, but loved it so much that we carved out some time in our itinerary and came back 5 days later for a second night. The room is incredibly clean and furnished with gorgeous antiques. It's simple, but in a wonderfully rustic way. The rooms are private and tucked away in the end of the house, but there is no feeling lonely, you feel very taken care of and made to feel at home. The views are amazing, you can see right to Siena from the windows. Marie (oh how we adore you, Marie!) made us the most spectacular food we've ever had in our entire lives. Her cooking was the main reason we returned for a second night. She is a culinary genius and the spread she provided was knock your sock off. I believe there was something like 7 or 8 appetizers. We couldn’t stop eating and went to bed stuffed and overly satisfied. We really can't speak highly enough about this place. Especially the meals! Breakfast was just as wonderful. All fresh, organic and I believe from her garden. Marie doesn't speak any English but her children are on hand to help translate. This B&B is a shining example of perfect countryside quiet, peace, and lovely hospitality. Marie and her children will take care of anything and everything you could possibly need. We will most certainly return. This B&B is maybe 10 minutes outside of Siena center, driving into Siena is a breeze and there is ample parking available. If you have a car and can make the little trek out into the countryside I strongly recommend that you give the peaceful, quaint countryside a go.
Schon bei der Ankunft wurden wir fürstlich bedient. Eine kleine Platte mit Köstlichkeiten aus dem eigenen Garten und ein kaltes Glas Wein. An unserem "Zimmer", bestehend aus Badezimmer, Eingangsbereich und Schlafzimmer, kann nichts ausgesetzt werden. Siena ist gut mit dem Auto erreichbar (ca. 20 Minuten) und wir empfanden es angenehm, am Abend fernab von der Stadt in einem grossen Landhaus zu übernachten. Bei unserem Aufenthalt schien sich die ganze Familie um unser Wohl zu kümmern, so dass wir uns mehr als Freunde als als Gäste fühlten. Leider waren wir nur zwei Tage in der Tenuta la Santissima, weshalb wir bestimmt ein weiteres Mal in die Toscana reisen werden. Tipp: Von S. Rocco a Pilli weiterfahren nach "Pilli". Das Haus befindet sich genau neben dem Ortsschild "Pilli"
Our experience was magical! The location is gorgeous, the rooms are beautiful and clean and the hosts are among the best we encountered on our trip. This was the most expensive place we stayed on our trip, but it was certainly worth the splurge - it was truly unforgettable. It is obvious Nadia and Christian love what they do and their way of life. The breakfasts were incredible. Do not miss the farm dinner at least one night during your stay, but be prepared to eat and drink lots - definitely our best meal of our trip with food prepared fresh from their garden. Really enjoyed eating with the other guests from around the globe, staying up late into the night chatting. Also loved our cooking class with Maggie and the wine tour with the extremely knowledgeable Christian -- truly fascinating. The town of Siena is a short cab ride away and the owners can recommend some great restaurants. We spent many hours painting the beautiful scenery on site. Highly recommend this agriturismo!
We first visited Agriturismo Cesani in 2009. We returned for 3 weeks in July 2013, and we are already planning to come back next year. The place is wonderful and the family running the farm are the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet. The wines they produce are some of the best anywhere in the world, from delicious light whitewine (vernaccia di san gimignano) fruity rosè that reminds me of eating wild strawberries as a child, and strong red wines that explode with flavour. We felt welcome and at home from the moment we arrived, the staff always ready to help with anything we needed. It is a great place to relax and do nothing, but is also perfect as a startingpoint for daytrips exploring Tuscany.The area is also very good for birdwatching, with Bee-eaters, Hoopoe and Short-Toed Snake-Eagle among the birds seen in the vineyards. We highly recommend staying at Agriturismo Cesani. For us it is Heaven on Earth.
Our experience at Le Caggiole (September 22-25) was one of the fondest memories of a wonderful month long visit to Italy. My husband and I were greeted with a warm welcome from the moment we arrived and provided with a wonderful stay during our time with Giacomo and "Mama Ornella" We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely, clean and comfortable accommodations and most especially the warm hearts extended to us! Many thanks to Giacomo, for taking time out of his busy schedule to take us into his vineyard and explain the growing, pruning and harvesting process. It was special for us to be able listen to the history of the Martinelle land, be a witness to the love & respect Giacomo has for it, and of course, to see it for ourselves. A special "mille grazie" to Ornella. We grew so very fond of her during our stay and were sad to leave! Her welcoming and generous spirit is apparent in all she does for their guests. We will always remember Giacamo and Ornella, as well as the special touches and hospitality they extended to us to make our stay so memorable. We hope that our lives cross paths again.
We spent several holidays at Cesani since 5 years. It's always a pleasure to come back. The rooms are comfortable, the landscape around San Gimignano is wonderful like on a postcard. And you can easily reach the nicest places of Tuscany ! But first of all, the keyword in this agriturismo is hospitality. Have a talk with Letizia and her staff. They will explain how the produce with love their excellent wine and oil. Don't miss the brekfast with the homemade pies. Amazing !
Without a doubt this was one of the most enjoyable vacations my wife and I have had. From the get go the welcome at home atmosphere , plus the location on top of a little mountainside within the vineyards made for some beautiful views . What can i say about the cooking was as if you were eating at home in a country cusine with fresh food from the garden , delicious pastas and breads and last but not least the WINE. Christian and his group know what its about to produce outstanding wine and olive oil. Stay a week --its worth it !!!
La Santissima is a fantastic place. It's just 10/15 minutes away from Siena and it's not far from other interesting cities in Tuscany, as San Gimigniano, Montalcino, Volterra and Montepulciano. The house is amazing, the rooms are big and very clean and the whole family is so kind, they all make you feel at home. The mother is a really great cook and she uses fresh products. I hugely recomend this place, you will have a wonderful experience!
We stayed two nights and could not have been better looked after. The breakfast would put many hotels to shame. It is not a smart boutique establishment rather we were given the hospitality of guests in their home. Fresh water is provided in the bedroom and at meals.
Superb location! The pastoral settings, solace, tranquility all are adding to the majestic environment of the place. It is so close to nature. A break from the industrial settings! You rightly said, what’s more romantic than this. What would be more beautiful than sitting in such environment and having dinner on a terrace. Really want to visit! DbaiG Bolee.com
We did get a bit lost trying to find the location, but the family was so helpful taking our phone call and coming down to meet us and lead us the their location (our Garmin GPS couldn't find it for some reason.). The room and home is superior and the meals were incredible (breakfast and dinner). I recommend dining with the family. Lovely people.
A 3 night stay was perfect. We had dinner at la lucciiolaia 2 nights and it was a true Tuscan fantasy. Lucious Chianti from the estate with local produce. The staff was so helpful for us English-only travelers. Centrally located with quick access to Siena, San Gimignano, and Monteriiggioni. A vehicle with GPS was a blessing.
Special is the best way to describe our experience with this great family. Special rooms. We stayed in the Lilly room and was blown away with the space in both the room and the bathroom. It was extremely clean and well appointed. Special meals. To say the meals were fantastic just does not seem to do them justice. Momma is an awesome cook! Special family. We felt like family instantly. They went out of their way to make us feel that way and every bit of their hospitality was genuine. Special place. Being so close to not only Siena but also Chianti and Montalcino is fantastic but then to come HOME is even better. If you don't book with this fine family now you will make a huge mistake. They are the best. We missed them the moment we started backing the car out of the driveway. We felt better knowing we will absolutely return to stay there again soon.
I almost don't want to give Tenuta a glowing review since I feel this is one of the last truly "hidden" gems in the Siena area. Too many great reviews and we'll have problems booking for next year! It may be slightly off the beaten trail but that's exactly what many Tuscany trekkers are looking for. The house lies within a serene stretch of countryside, perfectly located for jaunts to Siena, Montalcino, the rolling fields of the Val D'Orcia and the vineyards of Chianti. If you want to experience what a BnB should be like, don't hesitate to book here. Maria and her sons (plus daughter of course) are friendly, jovial and genuinely great hosts. Even their docile dogs Margo, Stella and Tina add to the atmosphere of laid back living and effervescence of the entire setting. The room size is impressive as well. Even the smaller of the two (which we stayed in) is the size of most single bedroom apartments and is well isolated from the other room. The breakfast spread puts the stale offerings given by all other BnBs to absolute shame. Everything is fresh from the local market or Maria's own overflowing garden, ensuring every breakfast is as unique as it is scrumptious. Don't plan a large lunch....you'll be full until supper. Truth be told, we had tears in our eyes when leaving earlier today. If you're looking for a genuine Tuscan experience, ignore the over-priced chateaus and castles. This place is what you need. Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple
Found Agriturismo Marciano while searching the web on where to stay near Siena...was without a doubt my lucky day. We booked for dinner and it was amazing, great food, great wine, great company! Our room was extremely comfortable-and breakfast the next morning was fabulous with wonderful homemade pastries and breads and fruits and cheeses and meats! Christian, Nadia, and Renato are the most incredible hosts and we of course bought a bottle of their wine to take home. They suggested restaurants for us in Siena and could not have been more accomodating!
Where to begin ... the freshly baked breakfasts were delicious (and that says a lot coming from Portland, OR where great bakeries are on every corner), the view of the farm out our window was absolutely beautiful, the host family could not have been more kind (they even set up a crib and a high chair for our little one!), the nearby town was one of our favorites in all of Tuscany, the running trails, the dinner, perfect, perfect, perfect. My only complaint is that it's so far from where we live!
Found this place on this website and needed a place to please my family who wanted the typical Italian winery experience at some point during our trip. We stayed two nights, but those two nights outweighed the 10 day trip around Italy. The owners are great, they want to help you see things around Siena that are worth seeing. They make daily trips for everyone who wants to go out and about in the countryside. Would suggest getting a car while you stay at this place because you don't see how amazing this place is until you drive around. The dinner was amazing with typical dishes from Siena and the owners are all too willing to share their recipes, sampling various types of wine during the meal with nice conversation throughout the meal with the other guests. This place is magnificant both in the day and at night. Couldn't hear a thing at night and the rooms were perfect for two people to stay in. If we ever go back to Siena again, we are staying there without a doubt.
Siamo appena rientrati da un fine settimana da favola!!! I giudizi sono solo positivi a partire dalla posizione dell'agriturismo a dir poco unico, immerso nel silenzio e nel verde delle colline toscane e di fronte il magico skyline di S.Gimignano. Ma la vera anima dell'agriturismo è lo staff , Cristina , Francesca e Gilberto che gestiscono la struttura in modo professionale ma nello stesso tempo ti fanno sentire come a casa . All' arrivo l'accoglienza di Cristina ti mette subito a tuo agio , Francesca oltre ad un servizio eccellente, con il sorriso e la sua simpatia rendono la colazione e la cena ancora piu'gradevoli . E che dire della cucina di Gilberto, tipicamente toscana , ottima , a partire dagli antipasti al dolce , tutto fatto in casa con le sue mani . Il tutto accompagnato da vini eccellenti tipicamente toscani doc ! Non ci dimentichiamo poi delle camere , carine e di cui non c'è nulla da eccepire per la pulizia ed ordine . Anche il resto della struttura , dai giardini alla piscina tutto curato ,addirittura meglio che dalle foto del sito . Un consiglio , dopo cena nel giardino di fronte a S.Gimignano, rilassatevi ascoltando " il concerto " della natura immersi nel prato illuminato di lucciole. Possiamo solo dire che Cristina , Francesca e Gilberto , ci hanno fatto passare un indimenticabile anniversario di matrimonio ! Grazie ragazzi , siete unici ! Giudizio finale : lo consigliamo a tutti !!! Laura e Alberto. Bergamo
Le bellezze paesaggistiche che circondano L'agriturismo la Lucciolaia ritemprano la mente, il cuore e l'appetito. Sito davvero stupendo, personale cordiale e competente. L'unico neo, la strada sterrata per arrivare un po troppo polverosa (un po di ghiaia risolverebbe in parte il problema) Giuliano
My Husband and I own a B&B and winery in New York and wanted to stay at a similar property. Being a skeptic and not sure what to expect abroad we were blown away by this winery & Inn. It was exactly what we were looking for, unpretentious, laid back and beautiful. Not too forget the Wines were our favorite (I still dream about that Canaiolo Wine) and the Dinner is not to be missed After 5 days of travel in Tuscany staying at similar properties this was our Favorite We will definitely be back! Nadia and her husband were accommodating and a pleasure to meet Lisa & Anthony Sannino
My sister and I took our parents to Italy for thier 55 anniversary + Mom's 75 birthday. Thank God everyone is healthy enough to make this trip. Thank goodness for this wonderful bed & breakfast. Coming into our rooms after touring the surrounding area each night was like coming home. It was a perfect place to let dad and mom unwind after lots of walking. Quite and peaceful... much like our rural homes back in the USA. Wonderful host and hostess too. You'll love it!
Haga de un Bed and Breakfast o de una casa rural en Siena (Italia) su hogar lejos de casa
La histórica ciudad de Siena es una de las ciudades más bonitos de Italia. Construida sobre tres colinas de la Toscana, rodeada de olivos y con el valle de Chianti al norte, no es de extrañar que los visitantes que se alojan en un Bed and Breakfast de Siena repitan. Siena (Italia) es a menudo considerada la ciudad italiana medieval mejor conservada, muy rica en arquitectura única y predominantemente medieval, excelentes obras de arte y pequeñas y sombreadas plazas que permanecen igual desde su creación. El centro de Siena es tan importante, interesante y bonito que la UNESCO ha declarado todo el centro como Patrimonio de la Humanidad.
Cosas que hacer durante sus vacaciones en Siena (Italia)
Siena es famosa por muchas cosas y cuando llegue a su BnB de Siena debería deambular por los alrededores de las murallas de la ciudad o por sus serpenteantes calles para sumergirse en la atmosfera y el estilo de vida de Siena (Italia). Hay tantos lugares de interés para ver durante sus vacaciones en Siena que podría alojarse en un BnB de Siena durante semanas y aun así no las vería todas. La Piazza del Campo en el centro de Siena es el perfecto sitio para empezar su visita a Siena. La famosa forma de concha fue diseñada para proporcionar a la ciudad un punto central y todavía lo sigue siendo. También merece la pena visitar mientras se aloja en un B&B de Siena la Torre del Mangia, el extravagantemente diseñado Duomo de Siena y la espectacular iglesia de San Domenico que alberga numerosas obras de arte.
Si tiene la suerte de alojarse en un Bed and Breakfast de Siena o de los alrededores de Siena durante la primera semana del mes de julio o la tercera semana de agosto, no se puede perder las carreras de Palio. La mayor tradición de Siena convierte toda la ciudad en un autentico frenesí cuando los diecisiete contradas animan a sus jinetes entre gran rivalidad. Las carreras de diez caballos convierten la plaza central en un hervidero de espectadores con ganas de acción después de tres días de banquetes, desfiles y muchas celebraciones. También se celebran una gran cantidad de festivales a lo largo de todo el año. Alojándose en un Bed and Breakfast de Siena podrá disfrutar la Accademia Musicale Chigiana, Jazz en Siena, cine en el festival al aire libre de Fortenzza y los grandes mercados que cada miércoles se instalan en la ciudad.
Una buena manera de pasar el día lejos de su BnB de Siena es explorando el bonito campo de la Toscana y los varios pueblos idílicos y románticos que rodean Siena. El terreno montañoso ofrece algunas rutas un tanto duras para el senderismo y el ciclismo, pero la gran cantidad de bonitas vistas, encantadores pueblos y exuberante paisaje hace que sea una experiencia muy enriquecedora y única.
Lugares para visitar durante sus vacaciones en Siena (Italia)
Si desea alojarse en una encantadora casa rural o BnB cerca de Siena, la región montañosa de Chianti es un bonito lugar para instalarse.

Un BnB o casa rural cerca de Siena es el lugar ideal para organizar unas vacaciones dedicadas al senderismo con la ventaja de estar a poca distancia de esta magnífica ciudad.
