We decided to stop in Tuscany at the last minute for a couple of days. My daughter wanted a pool and I wanted a stop in the countryside (enough driving in cities!). The Relais la Costa is WONDERFUL. I'm easily lost, but I did not have any problems finding the place (GPS + signs = no problem, don't worry about those comments!). Angelica, the cook/overseer, is wonderful. My daughter said if she could have an extra grandmother, she would want it to be Angelica! When traveling with a 5 year old, you are sometimes overlooked as not interested in fine wine and good food. Not the case here - we were treated like absolute royalty despite there only being the two of us there! Dinner was fantastic - even catering to us being vegetarians despite the last minute notice of our arrival (booked the day before). Angelica made my daughter a to-die-for hot chocolate of all things (I didn't even know gourmet hot chocolate existed!). The pool was not open, but the jacuzzi is HUGE and just the right depth for my daughter to use it as a pool (and for me to relax! What a treat!). The room was beautiful - I could have happily moved in. The countryside is lovely and Siena is at most a half hour away by car - lots to see and do. We will definitely return to Relais la Costa on a return trip.
