    Amazing B&B in Siena with super friendly hosts

    Amazing B&B with the most friendly hosts. A little off in the countryside, but well worth the stay. Roberto’s breakfast consisted of delicious local meats and cheeses and we had the opportunity to dine-in at night. Roberto and his wife Stephania was kind enough to show us where to eat and see in Siena. I was so sad to leave because they made us feel so welcome.

    Wonderful Stay

    There are so many great things about La Canonica: its beautiful location on the edge of national park; its closeness to Siena, the town is about 6 miles away; the great rooms and super food, but best of all are the hosts, really friendly and helpful.

    A lovely retreat and authentic Tuscan experience

    Staying at La Canonica with Robert and Stefania and Jessica was a quintessential Tuscan countryside experience! About a 15 min drive from Siena, it is tucked away among the hills in a national park. The house is large and gracious, but has a cozy, homey feel. Our room was wonderful, set on a corner with French windows opening on two sides, looking out on the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We enjoyed the sitting area with arm chairs and a table with coffeemaker and snacks to relax and read. We loved the authentic historical feel and totally real Italian culture and hospitality. Roberto and Stefania were warmly welcoming and very happy to look after our every need and desire! They even went to the neighboring dairy farmer and picked up a wheel of the delicious pecorino cheese that they were serving at breakfast! Their breakfasts were the best, with a variety of Italian meats and cheeses, fresh omelets to order and bottomless cups of wonderful Italian coffee every morning! In three weeks in Italy La Canonica was our favorite stay.

      We'd never been to a B&B before, and after this experience, I'm not sure any other B&B can now live up to my lofty expectations. The stay was amazing, from the location to the facilities to the food and most importantly, the hosts! La Canonica di San Michele is a gem tucked away in a (very) small village atop a hill in the Tuscan countryside, so it feels remote yet it is only about 10-15 minutes away from medieval Siena. The inn was well-aportioned with comfortable and homey amenities that truly made one feel as if they were a guest in a friend's home. The grounds feature great views of the surrounding countryside and a small church dating from the 1300s attached to the inn! Breakfast was always an impressively expansive spread with homemade cake, custom omelettes, espresso, cappuccino, fresh fruit, etc. We had to leave very early (6:15 AM) on the last day, but rest assured - breakfast was ready and waiting. We also ate dinner here one night, which definitely exceeded our expectations. It felt less like a restaurant and more like being in someone's dining room - antipasto, pasta, meat, dessert, wine, everything. All made to order by Roberto. Which leads me to my last point - the hosts Roberto and Stephanie are amazing. They are super friendly and welcoming and we truly felt like guests in their home. Roberto even provided us with a great itinerary for our lone day of sightseeing. Can't recommend enough and will be back if we ever visit Tuscany again!

      Beautiful property, amazing food and wonderful hosts. The property dates back to the 1200’s and it depicted everything that Tuscany is. We never wanted to leave. Roberto, Stephanie and staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was the most enjoyable experience.
