Fattoria di Cavaglioni
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Gorgeous location. Staff were not always at the front desk, but you could ring bell if needed. Amazing fresh-made croissants and bread for breakfast in the morning, hot out of the oven. Sound travels very easily between the rooms b/c it is an old building, so I would advise bringing earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Directions to the hotel were very clear and easy to follow, great little restaurants, gelateria, and grocery store within walking distance. Bus to Siena very easy to use, but ends at 8pm, and taxi is about 20 euros.

Bikes to rent from the hotel, gorgeous grounds that you can explore, excellent views from all the rooms.

Room Tip: you do not want a room near the kitchen/living room area - it is noisy as sound travels very easily...

We stayed at the Fattoria for 4 nights. It was a wonderful place for those who want a real country visit. Unfortunately, we had intended to spend most of our time in Siena, which was a further bus ride than we expected and the buses stopped running back to the hostel at 8. This meant that if we wanted an evening in the gorgeous Il Campo, we had to take a taxi home, which was about 20 euros. This did come as a surprise, and it would have been good to know in advance that access to the city was limited. Having said that, most people wanting to stay here probably are not planning a trip focused on a city center, so I realize this was our mistake. The only other odd thing was that there was no swimming pool-- in our case this did not matter as the weather was unseasonably cold, but some of the websites out there for booking the Fattoria list a swimming pool and hot tub, which are not on the property (as far as I could tell). But this is a good place to stay, and for the price it is a real Tuscan bargain. The countryside is beautiful, and Anna Maria was an absolutely lovely host-- gracious and helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious and quiet, and the little town had a peaceful atmosphere.

The view from the kitchen is - indeed- stunning. Other than that I am not sure why this garners such great reviews. It seemed pretty average. The rooms were clean but a bit bleak and the feel of the place is quite austere. The breakfast was a bit rubbish (nasty coffee and stale buns). For the price it's not bad but I would like somewhere with a bit more life and a homely feel.

Stayed here three nights in September and it was an absolutely lovely stay. Anna Maria and her daughter Bernice do a wonderful job at maintaining the charm and old world energy of the place. We took the bus into Siena for the day and we were glad to get back to the quiet and peacefulness of the countryside. The rooms are clean and well maintained. I would definately recommend staying here if you are in Tuscany and want to explore the local villages and towns, yet want a nice and quiet place to stay at night. The small town of San Rocco a Pilli is only a five minute walk and the gelatto in town is really tasty. The view from all of the rooms is right out of a travel magazine....beautiful.

I stayed at this incredible property four years ago with a friend when we were travelling around Europe, and still to this day I remember how much we enjoyed our stay here. You are surrounded by breathtaking views of the Italian countryside, the local town gives you a real feel of a rural part of Italy and the 14th century luxurious villa itself is rich in heritage and beautiful architecture. The mother and daughter who run this establishment are lovely people and could not have made our stay more special, warm, welcoming or memorable. This is one of my favourite places in the world. I highly highly highly recommend you see and experience it for yourself.

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms on either side of the mansion, both had stunning views and a spacio...
