Aia Mattonata Relais
A slice of tranquility mere minutes from the hinterland of cosmopolitan Siena, Aia Mattonata Relais embodies the timeless Tuscan way of life that everyone wants a piece of.
A modest brick-built farmhouse allegedly dating back to the 7th Century; its situation atop a grassy hill affords spectacular views of the cityscape, reinforcing its appeal as a place to catch the best of Tuscany’s sunsets. With only 5 spacious rooms and a family suite, Aia Mattonata Relais is an intimate guesthouse where you’ll find a real emphasis on homely comfort. Rooms are furnished in a rustic style with period antiques and four-poster beds, plus hi-tech extras such as large screen LED televisions and free high speed internet.
With its statuesque towers and Renaissance architecture, the artisan city of Siena provides the perfect backdrop to the Relais infinity pool, where you can enjoy a glass of Moscadello di Montalcino before dinner. Those seeking to shrug off the sluggishness of city life are in for a treat at Aia Mattonata’s converted stable spa, which boasts a Turkish bath, jacuzzi, steam-room and well-equipped cardio centre. Indulge in a spot of ancient pranotherapy courtesy of the owner’s wife, or book a massage with one of their qualified staff.
Less than 10 minutes from romantic hotel Aia Mattonata, the historic quarter of Siena offers endless culinary opportunities, including the distinctly cosy Osteria le Logge, famed for its Taglierini al Tartufo and varied primi menu.
