Despite the relatively modest production of many Tuscan vineyards the wine made in Tuscany has herculean flavour and character. Still mysterious and somewhat cognoscenti in international terms – come and discover it for yourself.  Chasing your perfect wine around Tuscany with a loved one is a wonderful adventure.

Wherever you are going to in Tuscany a beautiful journey will take you there. Travel with an open mind and no firm​ appointments. T​he journey is as important as the destination.

Tuscan weather is dutifully dependable and inspires spontaneity.  Comfortably warm spring and autumn days are perfect for exploration. High summer enforces blissful relaxation during the middle of the day but nights are cool, romantic and exciting.

About Siena House

Siena House is a very different place to stay in Tuscany. A truly boutique hotel in a great touring location, perfectly positioned for Southern Tuscany’s most wanted wines, landscapes and hilltowns – or for doing nothing at all.  Peaceful and private, this is a gated property with large saltwater pool, beautiful rooms and views run by a British couple.
