Dear Tuscany Traveller, We are busy decorating and improving the property at the moment (May 2020) and we will be updating room photography very soon. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, we are here to help! Malvin & Amanda.

We now offer two types of stay: Classic and Essential

Our Classic Stay is the most luxurious stay that you can book with us: It is the Classic Siena House Stay that our regular guests will be familiar with. When booking this stay type we will hold a particular room off sale for you, chosen by you, which you will book by name: Look for ‘Room Name (Classic)’ for example ‘Montepulciano Suite (Classic)’ at Reservations.

Our Essential Stay is a new stay type where you reserve accommodation only. You can add more services in once you’re here – or not – as you prefer. More like a regular hotel reservation, we don’t confirm a particular room but simply the type of accommodation required for your stay. Look for ‘Room Only Double / Suite (Essential)’ at Reservations.

Our Simple Breakfast, Italian Coffee (made on a full sized bar machine) or gourmet Tea, with a fresh baked pastry, local syle, is always available and you can add it in day by day however our Big Breakfast is not guaranteed available unless booked in advance.

Availability of classic and/or Essential stay types will depend upon stay details as well as what is going on here in terms of agriculture. For example: During periods of intense commitment to our Saffron and Olive Oil production, it may only be possible to book an Essential Stay with Simple Breakfast, as we will not have the time to prepare the Big Breakfast (which requires a 6+ hour preparation time).

Our Saffron and Olive Oil will soon be available for online purchase. We hope to be able to offer some of Amanda’s art – particularly that on paper – in the not too distant future, too.

Watch this space!

  • A Real Home

    There are many pretty houses in Tuscany offering bucolic bliss in the Summer, but few offering real comfort whatever the weather. Restored to dream home specification for year round comfort, light and space were our priority and the house is primarily open plan.

  • A Historic House

    A big square house with a romantic Tuscan exterior and a surprising, arty interior, the property has a superb vantage point and views out across a hunting reserve as far as the hills of Trequanda to the South and and on the North as far as the Apenines.

  • ‘Modern’ Interiors

    Modern might be too harsh a term to describe our interiors - particularly the bedrooms which are only softly modern, playful and atmospheric compositions that are beautiful and comfortable to spend time in.

  • Large Pool & Garden

    We have an unusually large saltwater pool on the property secluded from the house in a sheltered, scenic spot. Shade at poolside and over the water is provided by Shade Sails that filter the U.V. light and are wind-proof.

  • & the latest technology

    We are very conscious that without good, reliable & fast Internet, flat screen TVs & Netflix in our suites and rooms, we could not claim to offer real comfort. At the house, we have a 100Mbps internet connection, sufficient for all our guests needs.
