My boyfriend and I stayed at Aia Mattonata Relais for two nights last spring. This trip was the last big trip before our baby Alex's arrival in Sept. It was the last leg of our 10 day Italian vacation touring Tuscany and I regret not staying longer. Aia Mattonata Relais is fantastic. The hosts (Elisabetta and Mario) are warm, welcoming and provide guests a wonderful Italian experience.
Let me give you the details of how wonderful this place really is:
Location - it is in the rolling hills outside of Siena with a fantastic view of the lovely, historic city. There is nice pool and a beautiful garden with lawn chairs perfect for relaxing and reading.
Hotel - the B&B is a historic farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated. We stayed in a lovely room with green decor. It had a canopy bed, flat screen TV, wardrobe and ultra modern bathroom. The attention to detail was wonderful. The drapes, the canopy bed, the hardwood floors, the paint on the wall, the desk, the wardrobe etc. all reflect the hosts ability to create an unforgettable Sienese experience for guests. And, one last note, Mario loves his gadgets; the hotel was up-to-date with the lastest technology including a self-powered lawn mower, key card locks for every room, wifi and a remotely operated gate to get onto the property.
Food - the hosts made sure I was stuffed like a bird! They served a lovely breakfast with a multitude of options (eggs, toast, pastries, yoghurt, coffee, tea, assorted fruits, meats etc.....) My boyfriend and I barely made it out the door because we were bursting after stuffing ourselves with the wonderful food. I was 6 months pregnant during my vacation and Elisabetta made sure I was never hungry. She even gave me a "to go" lunch for our long drive to the airport!
This place is fantastic and not to be missed particularly for travelers interested in staying in a peaceful setting outside the hustle and buslte of Siena.
