Recent Siena Province reviews

  • Chianti

    "This cottage is the fabulous place on earth. The home was well beyond my expectation. It was stocked with things to make our stay comfortable. It is quiet, romantic, and tucked away on a beautiful hill in Chianti. Your cares melt away. Te garden and grounds are beautiful. The host is friendly and yet you could feel as you were there by yourself. I cannot say enough positive things. Truly a fantastic place. You're an hour from Florence, half hour to Siena, and very close to heaven."

  • Wonderful week in Cetona!

    "When I first stood in the doorway of this beautiful house in Cetona, I had to pinch myself. Finally I was actually standing in this amazing place I'd been looking at in pictures for months. Marco's place is absolutely beautiful. The style and design is perfect in every detail, the architectural renovation was carried out splendidly, and you really do have your very own cave at the back of the side sitting room. Marco was so helpful and responsive, from the beginning of my inquiries to the last day when I emailed to ask directions to the nearest gas station for our departure. His daughter met us in Rome to give us the keys and detailed directions, and all of our interactions with both her and Marco have been friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week in Cetona, a wonderful small town with its centuries of history and modern life centered around the main square, the Piazza Garibaldi. We chose this house in part because of the convenience and charm of being able to walk to shops and restaurants, and we especially enjoyed interacting with the kind and friendly people who live there. In a minute we could walk to a wonderful bakery, a deli, a wine shop, a green grocer, other shops, and a larger grocery store up on the main road. We enjoyed delicious meals at the two excellent restaurants just steps from the house, the Ristorante da Nilo and the Osteria del Merlo. Cafe Sport, between the two restaurants, serves up delicious gelato, coffees, and wine by the glass. Cetona is also a great jumping off place to visit the Tuscan hill towns and thermal mineral baths (hot springs). We drove to Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Chianciano, and the Fonteverde spa in San Casciano during our stay. I only wish we'd had more time here, as Umbria is right next door and we never did venture there, nor did we fully explore the small towns scattered around the countryside. We would definitely stay here again, in a heartbeat, and we'd recommend this place to anyone looking to step off the wheel and breathe in the beauty of rural Tuscany for a while. I totally agree with the previous reviewer who stated that you can have expectations as high as you can imagine, and that you will exceed them here. Thanks for everything, Marco, we hope to be your guests again someday! Sonja and Doug"

  • Rustic & idyllic

    "We worried that Il Fienile was too good to be true but we had a wonderful time last week. Mimma & Franco are lovely hosts, the landscape is breath-taking and the villa, grounds & pool are all perfect. We had the most relaxing time. Castelina in Chianti, just a few minutes drive, is a charming hill town with great restaurants. You can follow a trail to it by foot, about an hour."

  • Enchanting and authentic!

    "You know you have entered an authentic paradise from the moment you pull into the drive and see the huge wine barrels, the small unobtrusive sign of Poggio Estruco and travel down the gravel path to be warmly greeted by the host and hostess, Pamela and Johnny and their wonderful dogs, Bella and Luis. The essence of all just takes your breath away, from the vines growing all over the beautiful stone villas, to the well manicured grounds that have lavender and rosemary growing abundantly to an herb and vegetable garden and even chickens! Then your eyes travel to the most incredible vista of Poggio Estruco’s grape vineyards, olive orchards, fig trees and outward to mountains and landscapes that embrace you. During our visit was time for the grape picking which was fun to watch. My apartment was huge, immaculate and so well appointed. It had all and more of any of the accruements’ you could want if you chose to stay and cook on site. My bed was so comfortable after such a long trip it called my name. Also special was to wake and be greeted by one of Johnny’s large canvas paintings on the wall. Never having been much of a breakfast snob it all changes when I travel. I found the morning offerings different and delectable. There was always a lovely variety to choose from with a fresh variety of fruit, Pamela’s scrumptious Olive Oil cake and her homemade plum preserves, yogurt, fresh eggs and pastries. Included was my staple of great coffee with my cream. I was fortunate to attend Pamela’s cooking class. What a unique, educational and tasty experience. This is a lady who has written 17 cookbooks and has mastered the trade. Although everything was delicious I have to say my favorites were the figs wrapped in fig leaves and steamed along with the fried squash flowers and sage leaves! Most of the guests were part of a wedding party that had the ceremony outside at Poggio Estruco. The weather was beautiful; the décor was classic and elegant. What a beautiful and romantic event. Not a “dry eye” in the house! There are just too many treasures to find at Poggio Estruco to list but I must say you cannot leave there without trying their wine and to take home their olive oil, Pamela’s cookbooks and some of Johhny’s prints as a souvenir."
