“Fantastic tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

The hotel locates in beautiful Tuscany. You can see nice landscape everyday when you open the window. The room is very big and its price is reasonable. It takes 15 minutes to Siena town driving a car. The host's family are very kind and hospitable. Mama can cook all kinds of tasty italian food. We had dinner two times there and enjoyed those food very much. Breakfast is very nice also which is cooked by mama herself. We learned making a pizza from mama and were very happy.
We would like to watch mama's cooking.
We will come back in future.

Room Tip: Room Daisy and Lily are big. All rooms are quiet.

The absolute highlight of our multiple stop exploration holidays in Tuscany. Every superlative is absolutely justified here, and there is no need to repeat what has already been said in the previous reviews. Do not miss out on the heavenly gourmet cooking of Mama Marie Therese, which was unparalleled and far superior to any other of the magnificent Tuscan gourmet cuisine we sampled in restaurants and other places. Mama Marie Therese cooks out of genuine passion.Her kingdom is the veritably magnificent kitchen, which she shows to her guests with great pride and with a broad heartening smile. We will certainly be back for an extended stay and also send our friends.

We stayed here last week and Pierre was so helpful. I was trying to book an overnight train trip and he after 10pm took us into his father's study and sorted it out and printed us the ticket. The house is fantastic and we had a great view over the Tuscan countryside ( Lily room). We ate momma's cooking every night (3 nights) as it was so good and for 30 euros including wine and dessert wine and biscotti at the end it was a steal.
Pierre also took our washed clothes hung it on the line and when we returned it was folded on our bed. They made you feel like part of the family and gave us a bottle of momma's homemade apricot jam to take with us.
There was always travel advice and a library of travel books in the communal sitting room for your use during your stay. A truly memorable visit and Pierre is second to none as a host. Thank you both for a great time in Tuscany and for sharing your family home with us.

Room Tip: Ask for the Lily room

Minutes by car from Sienna's city center (enter through Porta Tufi and park in Il Campo parking lot), you can find the best hospitality and great food in a lovely country setting at La Sanitissima. Freshly baked goods for breakfast (the hostess gets up three hours before you to bake everything from scratch), scrumptious and generous dinner, with great chianti, you will arrive as a stranger and leave as family wanting to come back as soon as you can. Definitely a highlight of our trip in Tuscany.
Atout supplémentaire pour les francophones, Marie-Thérèse, Pierre et Eric parlent parfaitement français (et pour cause) ce qui facilite encore plus la communication. Un must qui allie le charme et la générosité de la campagne avec les attraits de la ville toute proche.

Wow, what a find! My wife and I were very lucky to have stumbled across this B&B online when we were looking for a place to stay near Sienna for 2 nights. We did not get just a nice big room, we got a whole wing of a 400 year old home with more antiques and character than we could believe. On top of that the mother and 2 sons who hosted us were so welcoming and hospitable we did not want to leave.
Luckily, we read on their site that they would prepare a meal if asked. Given that we spent most of the day driving we were happy to have a meal prepared for us at their home. Oh my god, WHAT A MEAL! It was 4 courses and much of it came from their garden or was prepared fresh, such as the pasta and baking products. It was absolutely fabulous and an unbelievable deal - 30 euros each for 4 courses and an excellent bottle of wine.
Mama, Maria Theresa is a great cook, book in for dinner for sure. The breakfast is fresh pastries, fruit salad, homemade jams, incredibly tasty omlette, fresh squeezed juice, coffee.....etc. Do not stay here if you are not prepared to eat a lot. Erik and Pierre, the sons, speak excellent english and are very helpful for pretty much anything you want.
I can not say enough good things about the family and the B&B. We feel very lucky to have had this experience on what was already an awesome trip to Italy.

We just returned from Tenuta la Santissima two days ago. In a word it is AMAZING... 5 stars doesn't even touch how wonderful this family, home, food, hospitality, surrounds are. I will start with the food....
Don't even THINK about eating dinner out. Unlike other B&B's, this food is varied everyday, it is gourmet and delivered on beautiful dishes, in a dining room filled with antiques. For breakfast you will receive ~ four dishes or more, excellent coffee made to order (cappuccino/espresso), home baked tarts, breads, jam...AND for dinner - amazing antipasti with locally grown herbs/veggies, local wines, EXCELLENT courses, desserts to die for, all followed by liquor, coffee...we sat for > 2 hours with classical music playing on the CD player in the sitting room....Dinner is 30 EURO a person! Mama Theresa even made us a special couscous dinner that was the BEST we'd ever had....

Next, the family...
What a sincere, intelligent, hospitable, good humored family runs this amazing 'find'. Mama Theresa cooks the food and will let you into her kitchen - sharing her recipes and smiles with you. Pierre served us - he speaks excellent English, French and, of course Italian. You really want to ask him to join you at the table - he will provide you with all sorts of information about the area and is just a wonderful guy. Erik makes the pasta! It's SO GOOD!!

The place...
This home is full of antiques, it is spotlessly clean, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. You feel like you are in a five star hotel, taken care of - with the quiet, serene beauty of Tuscany surrounding you.

This is the BEST PLACE ON EARTH. While there we booked a return trip in the fall to see the beauty of Tuscany in September (and to eat some more!).

Room Tip: There are only two rooms with another 'kids' room available (without a bathroom) for familie...
