The Borgo Grondaie is an urban-rural anomaly, It sits on several acres of ground outside Siena, with the nice view, rambling buildings, gorgeous grounds, and swimming pool typical of Tuscan farmhouse hotels -- but it is just minutes from the old part of Siena and is surrounded by that town's suburban sprawl. It was wonderful to return to this oasis of greenery after spending time in the stony environs of Siena.
The staff was very helpful and provided the best breakfast of our trip (an unbelievable array of both meats and cakes along with more standard fare). They also provided a real haven one torrential afternoon, which we spent with other travelers sipping coffee, tea, and wine in the common room while watching the rain pour down.
Some notes if you are driving: The hotel is a little difficult to find. Make sure you bring along the directions from the hotel (do NOT rely on a mapping program) and stay alert once you get into town. There is lots of free parking at the hotel, and it is a quick and easy five-minute drive to one of the pay lots ringing Siena, making the trip into town very convenient.
