Hotel Description

For all their other charms, Italian hotels, as a rule, don’t really do understatement — so when you find a place that’s confident enough simply to call itself Siena House, it’s a good bet there’s something a bit special going on. (The proprietors are British, in fact, which goes a long way, now that we think of it, towards explaining the understatement.)

As a description, of course, Siena House is perfectly accurate. With just three rooms and one suite, it’s certainly on the scale of a guest house rather than a hotel. And its location, near Montepulciano in the province of Siena, is a foodie’s paradise, an oenophile’s dream.

What’s on offer here is a more casual, more personal form of hospitality. (They don’t like being referred to as a hotel at all.) A very substantial breakfast, cooked by your hosts, is included in the rate, and rather than a restaurant per se, there’s a kitchen in a standalone building (and an outdoor grill) that’s available for guest use. The place is small enough that your hosts are perfectly capable of keeping track of your comings and goings, and as the surrounding towns contain a number of very fine restaurants, it’s not out of the question that the house might be vacant for dinner.

Then again it might not. There’s much to be said for the idea of staying in; the rooms are comfortable, with picture-postcard countryside views, all decorated in a modern style that complements the house’s historical character. And the prospect of a semi-improvised Tuscan dinner with your hosts and a few fellow guests is a hard one to resist.

Please note: Siena House requires a two-night minimum stay and is closed seasonally from October 31 through March 30.

How to get there:

Siena House is located 32 miles (about a 45-minute drive) from Siena proper, and 64 miles (about a 75-minute drive) from Florence. There is a small local train station 3 miles from the hotel, in Torrita di Siena. The train trip from Siena proper takes about an hour. There is no direct train service from Florence.
