Charming, perfect location and very warm welcome by Gini and Fiona. Had an excellent stay and highly recommend!
The Tenuta Papena is a home away from home. A real gem in the lovely landscape of Tuscany, with a true Tuscan atmosphere, regarding both the decor and the hosts! The renovation of this impressive cloister has been done with great expertise and taste. A place to come back to over and over again. Highly recommended, also for your wedding or reunion!

Ginevra, and her family are very warm, welcoming hosts; not to forget their beautiful, friendly dogs ! Their Tenuta de Papena is a beautiful working horse ranch, with amazing all-surrounding Tuscan views. The accomodations are comfortable, tastefully decorated, and the setting of an old Medieval nunnery adds history and charm ! The location seems a bit remote, but you are actually close to many amazing Tuscan gems - you will need a car ! We were too early for the pool, but it is lovely too. Thank you to all of you !

I'm a very bright persona that loves to meet new people. I live in Papena since i was i child and I could never imagine my self away from this place even though i love travelling around the world and i have been visiting many places. That's why I want to be good at what I do, trying to let my guest feel at home while getting in touch with the magic atmosphere they can feel here in Papena!
