Residenza Farnese
Ranked #1 of 6 Farnese B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2012

I stayed here during June as part of a retreat and could not have asked for a better place to temporarily call home. The B&B is located in the medieval town of Farnese in Tuscany. Francesca, the owner, has taken an old building and completely transformed the interior without losing any of the charm. The bathrooms are all new and sleek, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Unlike most places in Tuscany, air-conditioners and ceiling fans are used, which helped considerably since we were experiencing temperatures in the high 90's during the day. Breakfast was a delight each morning, with Francesca's home-baked torts and cakes, yogurt and ricotta from local sources (we know because we met the farmers), cereal, fruit, toast, and capuccino or caffe americano, if that's your preference. One of our group requested boiled eggs; the next morning and every day thereafter still warm eggs were waiting for us. We sat on the balcony full of flowers, watched the swallows and the occasional cat on roof tops while planning our daily activities. It was a civilized and special way to begin each day. Francesca is a lovely host who makes every guest feel welcome.

The old town of Farnese is a warren of tiny, narrow cobblestone streets, so only the smallest of cars can get through (we still managed to scrape our side mirrors even though they were pulled in) and parking is limited to the main parking lot down the hill from the B&B. It's easy enough to walk the distance, but something to consider if guests are hauling huge bags or lots of luggage. Be sure to visit the Rokkabar in town - a tiny space that sells tobacco, candy and gelato besides being an internet hot-spot, bar, deli and local hangout.

From Farnese we made day trips to Lago del Bolsena (like Lake Tahoe but with warm water) and the towns of Orvietto and Civitta Bangoregio, all of which are highly recommended.

The rooms are so beautifully furnished in a clean, modern way but which never lets you forget that you are a lovely old building. We felt super-welcome from the first phone call up until the delicious breakfast with an excellent local ricotta which must not be missed! We love trying out local foods so the fact that there is a superb restaurant 3 minutes walk away is a just a delightful bonus.
