When we arrived to Pienza, we easily found this unique, charming place B&B La Vite. We were greeted by a lovely young women Katheryn. She showed us to our suite, bedroom and a living room, although we only reserved a room. So that was a nice surprise. The parking was a little bit tricky. We had to unload our luggage outside the walls of the town because cars are not aloud in the old town. But we found a free parking near by. Location was perfect. Walking distance to everything. We enjoyed standing on a little balcony and admire this beautiful street, so green and colorful. The rooms were decorated in traditional warm style. Everything was clean and functional. The breakfast was excellent. Good fresh coffee and pastries with yogurt was my favorite. It was a pleasure staying at this place. I only have warm and beautiful feeling with this experience. And I believe the price was very reasonable also. If you are planning visiting Pienza, B&B La Vite is the place to stay.
Nous avons été très bien accueillies dans ce quartier très calme, tout en étant central à Pienza.
Nous avons été aidées pour une recherche d'horaires de train sur internet.
Nos hôtes connaissent bien leur région et nous ont donné de bons conseils sur ce qu'il fallait voir en priorité à Pienza, à Montepulciano et à Sienne.

Ottimo b&b nel cuore di Pienza!! Stanza molto carina e pulitissima, ad accoglierci anche un mini-spumante e degli ottimi biscotti. Gentilissimi e cordiali Giulio e sua figlia Caterina, che è anche la cuoca delle deliziose torte della colazione. Lo raccomandiamo sicuramente!
