“Il Podere della Strega” is a farmhouse which was built at the end of the 17th century. It has recently been lovingly restored, in order to maintain the original structure but ensure all the necessary comforts for guests. The house is surrounded by a large olive grove, with a unique, incomparable view over the city of Siena.

Inside, the house contains carefully selected furniture, including items belonging to the owner’s family. In addition to the six bedrooms, there are also two sitting rooms for guests to use, a dining room and two kitchens where breakfast is prepared. To the right of the house is a large covered patio where breakfast is served during the summer months. To the left of the house is “Villa la Strega” which can be booked.

In front of the house, surrounded by the greenery of the olive grove, is an in-ground saltwater swimming pool, from which guests can enjoy the breathtaking views.
La colazione di IL PODERE DELLA STREGA
The breakfasts are served, both in winter and in summer, at a communal table so that guests can socialize with each other.

Usually breakfast is served from 8. 30 to 10, but Ms. Letizia is always very helpful and tries to meet every need.

In winter, breakfast is served the first floor dining room, with beautiful views over Siena, while in summer there's big table outdoor.

Guests can choose between freshly baked croissants, often homemade cookies or cakes, cereals and toast, to be accompanied with a selection of homemade jams and local honey.

Also available are seasonal fresh fruit, yogurt, fruit juices and milk, and - for connoisseurs - Tuscan meats and cheeses, possibly to be tasted with some extra virgin olive oil of our own production.

The landlady will prepare you coffee, espresso, cappuccino or tea, according to your preferences.

La struttura è molto bella ed il panorama su Siena è spettacolare. I proprietari sono gentili e disponibili, la colazione è abbondante. Unica nota di attenzione da segnalare è la strada molto stretta di accesso alla struttura.

An elegant Tuscan lady of impeccable taste and very good cook will welcome you in her recently renovated family estate.

Being born in Siena, she can inform you about places of interest and the best tours and landscapes of the surroundings and will recommend typical restaurants and wineries. In the days of the Palio horserace you will be involved in the crazy atmosphere of Siena.

The landlady prepares and serves breakfast every morning, often enriching the table with delicious freshly baked cakes.

Letizia speaks French and some English, but can also count on the cooperation of Antje and Viola.

Travel themes
Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
