Just what we were looking for. We only spent one night but love to go back and spend more time relaxing and enjoying the view. A lovely B&B in the middle of a olive grove and vineyard overlooking the city of Siena. Though we were out in the country it only took a few minutes to get a taxi. It... More

Booking.com recommended this B&B when our previously booked B&B had a water pipe break, and had to notify us they couldn't honor our reservation. Anyway, we were happily surprised to find that la Strega turned out to be one of the finest we have ever stayed at. I only gave it a "good" on location because it sits about 3... More

Quaint old farmhouse, beautifully and tastefully decorated. Smiling and helpful staff (they whipped up a lunch for us with 10 minutes notice while catering for a family gathering of 40 at the same time!) Beautiful views across the garden and pool to Siena. Slightly dated but with aircon / heating. and very good value for money.

We stayed at Podere La Strega for 3 nights in August 2016 on the start of our mini-tour of Italy. We loved the charm of the place - Letitia was a fabulous host (recommending a wonderful restaurant on our first night), the rooms were clean and tastefully decorated, the breakfast was to die for (I want to take those home...

I really enjoyed my stay at this small B&B just outside Siena, perfectly located for a visit of the city (7 min. drive by car) or for exploring Chianti area. The place is very tastefully furnished and decorated. Breakfast is served outside at a long wooden table where all guests come together. The pool area is really nice: You can... More

Being our first trip to Italy this charming farm house was all my wife and I had hoped for. We spent three nights here late June on a two week tour of Tuscany.

Very nice place on a hilltop overlooking Siena. Truly beautiful and only five minutes away from the city. Great breakfast in a very peaceful outdoor setting. We had a great stay and would highly recommend.

This is a charming farmhouse with beautiful grounds, swimming pool and a straight on view of Siena's skyline (cathedral, bell tower, duomo). Very laid back, run by the owner (Letitzia) who is so gracious, helpful, makes her own marmalades and jams to eat with her also very scrumptious croissants. The "farm" also produces its own olive oil and honey. Breakfast... More

Wonderful people, great views, serene setting. The property was beautiful and the owners were fantastic. She arranged a winery visit for us and suggested some great local sites to see. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our experience.
