Difficult to find at first but Francesco is available to help you. Once you're there it is easy to get into town with a two-five minute walk. There are only a few rooms, so if you are a solo traveller this is maybe a chance for respite rather than a place to meet other people. The place is cleaned each day and the wifi is good.
We were greeted by the owner, a very nice guy, who showed us to our room. Great room! A self-contained apartment with equipped kitchen, bathroom, living room -- all shared with another room. Nice garden outside the rooms, with tables and chairs. Parking.
Fonti di Pescaia has a quite good location for all who like walks, since it is located about 10-15 minutes from Il Campo. Hence, walking to the middle of town, you quickly are familiar with the ancient part of Siena. The only thing that I suggest to change is to organize a place for making a tea or coffee: I think that if there would be a possibility to prepare a tea or coffee in room, Fonti di Pescaia would be yet more attractive place.
The place is really cute and staff is very nice. If you go from the station by bus ask for more details about the directions. The location is ok, not excellent but you can walk to the center. The only thing I didnt like was the check in (3PM) and check out (10AM) time. I think it's inconviniente - cause in the middle of the day you wanna enjoy the city and a bit unfair, since is a lot less than 24 hs. And you can't even leave your luggage before 3PM, cause the receptioin is closed.
