Lodging in and around Siena

My wife and I are looking to spend 2 nights in Siena in October. Can anyone offer suggestions for a place to stay. What I am looking for is lodging on the outskirts or close to the town that allow easy access to the city center without having to drive a car to town (we will be spending one whole day in Siena) but also are not standard looking hotels but more like traditional villas. We will be renting a car for the second day to take a trip into the countryside. Also, we will probably be arriving in Siena by bus so not sure if the bus terminal location would affect where we should stay.

We stayed at a wonderful place called Il Canto Del Sole, you can read the reviews on TA. you take the dirt/gravel road out to their place which is situated on a hill. It is easy to get to Siena about a 10 min drive with traffic, they explain how to get there to park at Porta Romano which we did several times with no problems and did the short walk to the historic area. They also have a B&B just inside the Porta Romano walls which is listed on their website.

It was so quiet and beautiful views and we also ate one night there for a wonderful dinner with the other guests. They have two lovable dogs. We wanted so much to stay there all the time and have them adopt us.

We really enjoyed the Villa Scacciapensieri - on a hill just outside the city, with nice views over the countryside. The city bus stops right in front of the Villa's driveway, and takes maybe 15 minutes to get into town, or you can take a taxi for about 10 Euros or so. The bus station is only a few blocks from the Campo, so it shouldn't affect where you stay.

The Villa S. has been getting great reviews on TA recently.

We stayed at Borgo Grondaie. Check out its reviews. It is near the train station, but not sure where the bus terminal is located.

Let me suggest you Campo Regio Relais: it's in the historic center, it has amazing views and it's within walking distance from the main bua station.

Highly recommend Villa Elda, located in a quiet residential neighborhood just outside the ancient Siena walls. We stayed there June 10-13 and especially enjoyed the friendly assistance of owner Giorgia and her handsome son Davide. The hotel is a villa that has been in her family for generations. Rooms are clean, bright, and comfortable, breakfast is very good, and the hotel is a short, interesting walk to the center of Siena. If you are arriving by bus, easy to take a taxi to the hotel. If you look on hotel ratings for Siena, Villa Elda is ranked Number One of all hotels in and around Siena. Easy to see why, it is a charming, comfortable, conveniently located hotel. Be sure to ask for a room with a view of the ancient city! The gardens are lovely and the rooftop view is amazing.
