You’ll forgo a center of town location to stay here, but being just outside the walls—literally so, as this is the first house after Porta Roma, about a 10-minute walk from Piazza del Campo—comes with the advantage of making you feel like you are in the countryside. A large, shady garden enhances the feeling, and you can breakfast and enjoy a drink under the trees in good weather; for indoor lounging, there’s a snug little bar, a well-upholstered, book-lined lounge, and a glass-enclosed breakfast room. Most of the cozy and atmospheric rooms, with wood-beamed ceilings, simple wood furnishings, and nice old prints on the walls, face the back, where wide-sweeping views of the rolling greenery of the Val d’Orcia seem to go on forever. One choice room has a little balcony overlooking this scene, and a few others are two-level, with bedrooms tucked beneath the eaves. Just make sure to get a room at the back of the house, because facing the street out front would mean missing the wonderful view out back.
