This is by far the best place to stay in Siena. Our hosts were so helpful and kind. The breakfast was handmade every morning which is amazing! Our rooms were great. The vineyard was beautiful, wine was very good and I fell in love with the entire house. Only 1 suggestion: make a smoking section so those who don't care to smell cigarettes don't have to.

Staying here was a wonderfully unique experience in the best sense of the phrase. Beautiful countryside, lovely building, no expense was spared to update the vast kitchen which had a loft built above it. Our room was inviting, comfortable and clean. Décor almost mission or New Mexico-style. Modern bathroom. Delicious assortment of breakfast foods including cheese, fruits, various tarts and pastries… almost everything homemade. We decided to have dinner there which was additional but was an experience in itself… a 5-course meal, each course paired with a different wine. Most of the ingredients and wines are their own production. Host Christian was very gracious and cook Meghan explained every dish and wine pairing to a tee.

Our experience was magical! The location is gorgeous, the rooms are beautiful and clean and the hosts are among the best we encountered on our trip. This was the most expensive place we stayed on our trip, but it was certainly worth the splurge - it was truly unforgettable. It is obvious Nadia and Christian love what they do and their way of life. The breakfasts were incredible. Do not miss the farm dinner at least one night during your stay, but be prepared to eat and drink lots - definitely our best meal of our trip with food prepared fresh from their garden. Really enjoyed eating with the other guests from around the globe, staying up late into the night chatting. Also loved our cooking class with Maggie and the wine tour with the extremely knowledgeable Christian -- truly fascinating. The town of Siena is a short cab ride away and the owners can recommend some great restaurants. We spent many hours painting the beautiful scenery on site. Highly recommend this agriturismo!

Without a doubt this was one of the most enjoyable vacations my wife and I have had. From the get go the welcome at home atmosphere , plus the location on top of a little mountainside within the vineyards made for some beautiful views . What can i say about the cooking was as if you were eating at home in a country cusine with fresh food from the garden , delicious pastas and breads and last but not least the WINE. Christian and his group know what its about to produce outstanding wine and olive oil. Stay a week --its worth it !!!

Found Agriturismo Marciano while searching the web on where to stay near Siena...was without a doubt my lucky day. We booked for dinner and it was amazing, great food, great wine, great company! Our room was extremely comfortable-and breakfast the next morning was fabulous with wonderful homemade pastries and breads and fruits and cheeses and meats! Christian, Nadia, and Renato are the most incredible hosts and we of course bought a bottle of their wine to take home. They suggested restaurants for us in Siena and could not have been more accomodating!

Found this place on this website and needed a place to please my family who wanted the typical Italian winery experience at some point during our trip. We stayed two nights, but those two nights outweighed the 10 day trip around Italy. The owners are great, they want to help you see things around Siena that are worth seeing. They make daily trips for everyone who wants to go out and about in the countryside. Would suggest getting a car while you stay at this place because you don't see how amazing this place is until you drive around. The dinner was amazing with typical dishes from Siena and the owners are all too willing to share their recipes, sampling various types of wine during the meal with nice conversation throughout the meal with the other guests. This place is magnificant both in the day and at night. Couldn't hear a thing at night and the rooms were perfect for two people to stay in. If we ever go back to Siena again, we are staying there without a doubt.

My Husband and I own a B&B and winery in New York and wanted to stay at a similar property. Being a skeptic and not sure what to expect abroad we were blown away by this winery & Inn. It was exactly what we were looking for, unpretentious, laid back and beautiful. Not too forget the Wines were our favorite (I still dream about that Canaiolo Wine) and the Dinner is not to be missed After 5 days of travel in Tuscany staying at similar properties this was our Favorite We will definitely be back! Nadia and her husband were accommodating and a pleasure to meet Lisa & Anthony Sannino

An absolutely extraordinary experience! Beginning with the beautiful setting amongst vineyards and olive groves, to the hundreds of years old farmhouse, the lovely, comfortable, and quiet rooms, ending with the most extraordinary food you will eat in Tuscany! Nadia buys the food for the evening's meal that day and vegetables come directly from the farm's organic garden mere hours before you eat them. All six courses are paired with a different wine from the farm's vineyard and all are extraordinary. I am picky about wine and was so impressed! Nadia and her husband Renalto worked tirelessly for all of their guests. The price of the stay belies the time and the attention, the quality of the meals, the heartiness and freshness of breakfast, and the magic of the experience. Amidst many extraordinary Italian experiences, San Marciano rates as one of the greatest places to stay, eat, and relax. We had friends stay at a B&B who were lured there by a pool and some cosmetic frills--they were disappointed by the food and the wine. San Marciano has the view, the lovely, lovely home (no pool--but who cares when you can eat some of the greatest food and drink some of the must luscious vino???), and Nadia--culinary extraordinaire who learned to cook from her grandmother who emphasized the value of the most fresh, organic ingredients and to focus on a few flavors rather than drowning a meal in a cacophany of tastes. Loved it! Beyond words!

My wife and I are in our early 30's and typically stay in centrally located budget friendly hotels. However, we decided to give an Agriturismo a whirl while in Siena. What a great choice when we went with Agriturismo Marciano. After arriving in the evening, I'm handed a glass of wine by the owner. Can't say I've ever been treated to a glass of wine upon checkin anywhere else, what an introduction. Room and bathroom are fine. Clean and neat. Dinner: It might take an entire page to describe all the courses. I'll shorten it to a few words. What an amazing meal. Worth every penny. We only had the chance to do it one of two nights, and you might not know if it's a go or not until that day, so take the opportunity when it's there. It's a little tough to find, so have some google maps with your route. Everyone there was very friendly and went over and above considering it's a working vineyard and their busy working on the vineyard during the day. Highly recommend. Wireless internet in the kitchen/common area was a nice feature as well.

I have stayed at many Agriturismos all over Italy and this was by far my best experience. The owner, Christian, greeted us with a glass of wine, and a very detailed conversation about what to see and where to go in the area. Every morning after a delicious breakfast (much of which was home-made pastries), Maggie would show us routes to take on our map and explain places we should see. All of the recommendations were excellent and well worth our while. The room was very comfortable, with outstanding views of the surrounding countryside. Although it is only minutes away from the campo of Siena, you feel like you are far away. I would absolutely recommend this Agriturismo to anyone - it is appropriate both for young couples, and families with children.
