“A Charming, delightful place!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

My husband and I and another couple stayed at the lovely Aia Mattonata in May.....what a charming and wonderful place! The owners (Mario & Elizabetta) couldn't have been more friendly and helpful in regards to directions, places to eat, etc.......They make everyone feel like you are their only guests!! The breakfasts were wonderful and our breakfast was even prepared early on the day of departure.....The views were breathing and it was situated in a perfect location to visit nearby towns and points of interest. We would highly recommend the Aia Mattonata to anyone and I hope we can return again someday!

Room Tip: the rooms were very spacious & quiet with very comfortable beds! The bathrooms were large too...

There are not enough superlatives in the English language to convey how wonderful our stay was at Aia Mattonata Relais. I knew from the moment I emailed Mario to inquire about available dates that this would easily be our favorite accommodation during our 10 day Italy trip, and I was not disappointed. Mario and his lovely wife, Elisabetta, could not have been more helpful and accommodating during our stay. We were able to get reservations (and the best tables, I might add) at the two best restaurants in Siena in advance, and as we were leaving Florence for Siena, Mario had the perfect suggestion as to where we should stop for lunch on our drive down. Upon our arrival, Mario immediately remembered that we were celebrating our first anniversary and remembered our plans during our stay. He and Elisabetta also helped us with driving directions to Montalcino and arranged a tasting with a friend of theirs who has a small wine production, which was easily one of the highlights of our entire trip. Mario gave us perfect driving instructions at our departure for our drive up to Milan, and just could not have been any nicer. The accommodations at the farm house are absolutely beautiful. Very comfortable beds, soft sheets, a large bathroom and shower (a rarity) and a beautiful view of Siena outside where we enjoyed wine and cheese as we watched the sunset. The breakfast selection was different and incredibly tasty each morning.

I wish that we could have stayed at Aia Mattonata Relais forever and have already recommended it to friends traveling to Italy this fall. I look forward to the day that my husband and I can return to this magical place to thank Mario and Elisabetta again in person for the wonderful memories from our stay in Siena that we will cherish forever. Thanks again to Mario and Elisabetta for such a fantastic stay in Siena.

Have just returned to Siena to show my family this beautiful house that my husband and I visited last year.
It is as stunning as I remembered, Mario and Elizabetta were excellent hosts and always go out of their way to be helpful and very thoughtful.
Hope to return again soon

What new can be added to the marvelous reviews already posted? Our stay at Aia Mattonata was just what was needed after the hustle and chaos of time spent in Rome. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and the hosts - Mario and Elisabetta - make you feel as welcome as if you were long time friends. They took a genuine interest in us and our travels and did whatever possible to make our time in Tuscany the best it could be.

On a practical basis, it is helpful, but not required, to have a car while staying here. While only a few miles out of town, it's not really walkable. Taxis are very accessible and Mario personally drove us into town one early morning!

I would highly recommend this B&B for someone looking for a peaceful respite and/or base to explore Siena and the hilltowns of Tuscany.

Room Tip: We had the double room/suite along the back of the house that had views of Siena. Perfect!

As a frequent traveler for business, I have learned to adapt to "less than ideal" conditions while traveling. At Aia Mattonata Relais, however, my expectations were surpassed repeatedly.

Beginning with the facility itself, it is clean, comfortable, quiet, and picture perfect - and exactly the setting we were hoping for. I send pictures home to my friends and family - none of them could believe the actual beauty of this setting. Views of vineyards, rolling hills and the City of Siena itself can be seen from the guest rooms or from the lovely terrace in the back of the house. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with amenities such as in room coffee/tea, charging station for electronics, and basic toiletries. The common areas in and around the house are comfortable and relaxing. The property has free WiFi - which is a HUGE plus for those of us who need to stay connected while on vacation.

Breakfast is served daily from 0830 - 1000, and includes a beautiful buffett with juices, coffee, espresso, etc.

But - the best part ( as if the information above is not enough) - were our hosts, Elisabetta and Mario. Not only did they provide a lovely atmosphere for our much needed vacation, they made us feel like they were happy to share their home with us. They visited with us each morning and evening and were genuinely interested in hearing about our daily adventures as we toured the Tuscan countryside. They assisted with reservations, directions - and even took time from their day to drive (or let us follow in our rental car) if the location seemed daunting for us to find. Clearly, they recognize the Tuscan experience is far more than a beautiful room in a beautiful villa - because they truly go beyond expectations to make each day special and as stress free as possible. These are genuinely lovely people who make you feel like special friends in their home.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention beautiful Runa, who greeted us warmly every morning as well.

We have been back in the US for less than 24 hours and are already planning our next visit.

Thank you for making our hard earned vacation incredibly special in every way!!

Dear Gigi629,
thank you so much for your kind comments about Aia Mattonata and how delightful to hear that you felt like friends in our home!
We certainly work hard to achieve this, but we are wrong if we say that it’s only a job for us, it’s not!…It’s a really great pleasure to meet our guests from all the world, to help them to discover Italy and Tuscany without stress, if it is possible!, to share a glass a wine late in the afternoon or after dinner chatting together. It is rewarding and reassuring to receive such comments as yours, especially when we read your kind words about Mario and me. Thank you again. We are small and we have a very dedicated team ( including Runa) who want to make your stay memorable, we are glad when we hear that we did this for you.
We do hope that we will have pleasure of welcoming you back on a future visit .
Warm regards,
Elisabetta & Mario

We stayed at Aia Mattonata for a couple of days in May. We really enjoyed it and the hosts were very kind and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and it is very nice to have a common room with all kinds of snacks :). The good thing is that Elisabetta & Mario really know the area and provide you with the best tips. That really enhances your experience of Tuscany.

The view from the estate is gorgeous. We didn't use the swimming pool unfortunately because it was too cold, but it is absolutely something that makes the accomodation even better.

Overall, we would recommend this accomodation without any hesitation!
