About this listing
Family run B&B in the countryside, 20 min from Siena, 3 snug rooms and 2 apartments, ideal also on winter to the nearby thermal baths, with panoramic swimming pool and private car park. Good food, good wine and relax
Le Logge di Sopra is a family run B&B located in the countryside, in the heart of the “Crete senesi”, on the panoramic “Lauretana” road, famous for its ancient “biancane” (clay knolls). It stands in a strategic position for a quick tour or a pleasant week full of significant highlights offered by nature, history, culture, gastronomy and oenology.
It is a former farmhouse dating back to the 16th century, skilfully refurbished respecting the original architectural lines and antique traditions.
The transformation of the large, striking wine vault into 3 snug rooms and 2 apartments, thermally comfortable at all times, has created a cosy structure that offers peace and privacy to guests, also due to the small number of people who can be accommodated at the same time.
It is ideal also for winter holidays, owing to the nearby thermal baths, located 10 minutes away (in Rapolano Terme) and open all year round.
This is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday in the wonderful Tuscan countryside, with all the amenities of a lovely setting enhanced by a homey atmosphere.
A special mention is deserved by the culinary specialities served at the typical restaurants (some of which with special rates agreed with our B&B), like the “ribollita”, the “pici” with wild boar, the chickpea or spelt and porcini mushroom soups, the charcoal T-bone steak called “Bistecca alla Fiorentina” with white truffle, considered to be the “white gold of the Crete Senesi”.
Guests can relax in the a beautiful solarium, where they can enjoy a vast, breathtaking view, or in the meticulously manicured garden with swimming pool. There is also a free private car park with automatic gate.
Driving on the “Autostrada del sole” (A1) toll road, coming from the west or south, exit at the "Val di Chiana – Bettolle" gateway and follow the SP 326 provincial road in the direction of Siena (it is a 4-lane road). After about 16 km, take the "Asciano" exit in direction of Asciano. Drive through Asciano and then take the SP 438 provincial road (called Lauretana) in the direction of Siena. Cross the bridge on the Ombrone River and, after 4 km, on the right, you will find the “Le logge di sopra” estate (indicated by a road sign placed 350 m from the estate, and by a brown sign with “Le logge di sopra” written in white placed on the left, close to the B&B).
If you come from north (driving on A1, take the gateway "Firenze-Impruneta"), so also from the north, therefore also from Florence or from Siena, exit the A1 toll road at the "Firenze-Certosa" gateway and take the Firenze-Siena highway. At the end of the highway (Siena by-pass included, never exiting so as to avoid a more complicated route) the road forks: to the left towards Grosseto and to the right towards Arezzo/Roma. Bear right towards Arezzo/Roma. After about 5 km (and two short tunnels) you will find another fork: to the left towards Siena and to the right towards Arezzo/Roma. Keep right and you will end up on the SP 73 provincial road (Siena-Bettolle highway); after only 1,5 km, turn right in direction of Asciano. Drive through Taverne d’Arbia and Arbia and keep on towards Asciano for 15 km (it is a beautiful road, where many films and spots are shot). About 50 m after the indication of km 13 of the SP 438 provincial road (Lauretana), on the left, there is Le logge di sopra (indicated by a road sign placed 500 m from the estate, and by a brown sign with “Le logge di sopra” written in white placed on the right, close to the B&B). At this point, all you have to is ring the bell at the gate... Your journey is over and we will be there to meet you!
