Siena House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The Siena House is THE place to stay when in Tuscany! The hosts, Malvin and Amanda, are exceptional. They are very knowledgeable of the area, making recommendations on what to see and do and they instantly make you feel comfortable. They go above and beyond to make sure each guest is special and their every whim is taken care of. Malvin's breakfasts were the perfect start to our day, and it was a joy to taste a new delectable treat every morning. The views from the property are awe inspiring, one can never tire of those beautiful views. The modern interior, featuring Amanda's paintings, could be featured in any top home decor magazine. Without a doubt, I would recommend this property. It was a definite highlight to our 2-week trip! And if we were to return to Italy, I would make sure I include this in our itinerary again! Thank you Malvin and Amanda and all the best to you!

If you plan a trip to Tuscany, this is THE place to stay at.
Amanda and Malvin are wonderful hosts and own a beautiful place. The rooms are very spacious, the house is decorated with style including Amanda's very own colouful paintings, a lof of attention went to details making the place all the more comfortable and welcoming.
We slept very well thanks to the very good beds and the quietness of the suroundings and what a luxury to stand under the rain shower or to have a warm bath whist looking at the Tuscan hills from the large bathroom window!
Breakfast is a treat every morning whether you take it inside or outside on a sunny day. Malvin ensured we made a good start of the day everyday with his homemade cakes and yogurts, fresh juices and bread, local ham and cheese and delicious cappucinos.
The surroundings are amazing with Val d'Orcia and the Crete within a 15 minute drive. The region is full of history with many medieval villages to visit and what a fantastic nature and light. Malvin and Amanda gave us great tips too on where to go and eat and the coordinates mentioned in previous reviews come very handy indeed. The steakhouse with is Fiorentine TBone came highly recommended and lived up to the expectations! Torrita is located 5 minutes away from the motorway and driving to Siena or Florence was easy and quick.
Our daughter had a great time with Scarlet and we shared wonderful moments with Malvin and Amanda's familiy during our stay (8 nights). Thank you for all the special additional treats from the chocolate eggs on Eatser Sunday to cooking a wonderful dinner for all of us after we took Scarlet to the beach for the day. It made it all the more memorable.
I did wonder if we should promote Siena house openly as it is very tempted to want to keep it for ourselves but it is simply to wonderful not to highly recommend it to everyone of you.

First of all, Malvin and Amanda thank, you for having us. Your place was a highlight to our 2 weeks trip. I wish we could of stayed more, but we will definitely comeback. Your place is absolutely beautiful. There is a good reason, why you get rated 5 stars by every reviewer. You treat everybody as a family. Malvin, your breakfast is simply amazing. Combine that with a view and how you can beat it? We wish all the best to you and your kids. Hope to see you soon again. Thanks, Alex and Emilia

Siena house is the most amazing place with absolutely breathtaking views no matter where you are in the house! Malvin and Amanda's hospitality is wonderful! They make you feel very comfortable and at home throughout your stay. Their knowledge of the Tuscan region is extremely helpful, we didn't need to think about where we wanted to explore... We just hopped in the car and away we went with one of Malvin's already programmed GPS's. Without a doubt our favourite place throughout our trip through Italy!! Many thanks to you both!! We will definitley be recommending your stunning home to everyone thinking about planning a trip overseas! xo

My wife and I came here for the 2nd part of our 3 region Italian Honeymoon. Had no idea what we were getting into, as my wife found this place on TripAdvisor and said it had great reviews and nice photos. I was prepared to be underwhelmed.

We drove from Florence and the views on drive itself were incredible. Great start. 45 minutes prior to Sunset, we found the entrance road to Siena House and made our way up. Everything up to this point was exactly what I pictured Tuscany to be. We drove through the gates and were immediately greeted by Malvin (owner). He didn't let us waste any time, by way of chit chat or checking in and had a bottle of Champagne and Hors d'oeuvres waiting for us to enjoy with our first Tuscan sunset. It was perfect. As the sun went down, my wife and I were already in love with our decision and we hadn't even seen our room yet. We finally got to meet Malvin and his lovely wife and daughter and shown our room. The room itself was terrific. It was spacious, clean and continued the amazing views.

Malvin and Amanda proceeded to offer excellent recommendation on what to see, where to eat and even where to park. Some of our favorite meals on the whole trip were due to their insider knowledge which they had plenty of.

Every morning we woke up to what tasted and looked like a Michelin rated breakfast. The local and organic meats were amazing, and their home baked bread smelled so good, that we had to indulge even with Gluten intolerance's. It was worth it.

The location was perfectly central to every town we wanted to visit and was about a 20 to 40 min drive to each.

We were there for 3 nights and we honestly felt like we could have stayed all 7 of them here, as we stayed at another B&B in Tuscany as well. When we come back to Tuscany, we will definitely be staying here the entire time. Thanks Malvin and Amanda for the incredible experience!

Side Note: I was concerned the drive in was going to be confusing, due to the basic instruction given, "turn left after the sign, etc." but they actually proved to work perfectly, so don't sweat it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Montepulciano room. Loved it.

Malvin and Amanda are the most generous and warm hosts who have kindly opened their beautiful home for discerning travelers. From the delicious homemade bread, pastries, yoghurt and pretty much anything you request by Malvin to the fine linen and amazing artwork painted by Amanda, every aspect of our needs and more were meticulously catered for. Siena house is also located in a perfect location to explore the wine regions in Tuscany and the historic towns in Umbria with most locations within a 30-45 min drive (Malvin arms you with a GPS with their top recommendations pre loaded to help you find your way around!) There are also plenty of fantastic dining options within 5 minutes of the house - Fornacino and Forcillo were two that we tried. And if you're lucky, you might even get invited to a home cooked meal with Malvin and Amanda (such a treat after a while on the road). We will definitely call this home the next time we visit Tuscany.

This is easily one of the most memorable places we have visited, truly a fantastic place to stay. The amount of thought put into every little detail in this beautifully renovated house is reflective of Malvin and Amanda’s welcoming approach. We had been stuck in a very long traffic jam on our way from Rome and were immediately greeted with great sympathy and a bottle of prosecco, sat in front of the house, overlooking the Tuscan hills.

Particular highlights included the pre-programmed sat-nav making exploration in the surrounding area effortless, the quality of the rooms and bathrooms and, the star of the show, the amazing breakfasts – homemade pastry’s and bread, truffle honey, local pecorino, home grown basil and tomatoes…

This review is a little late (visited July 2013), but the memory of our visit still lives happily with us.
