"Wonderful hosts, beautiful scenery, and a lifetime of memories"
Daniela and Francesco Mariani are outstanding people who we now call friends. My husband, nine year old son and I stayed at Il Glicine for three weeks and felt like we became part of the village. Daniela made us feel at home and took very good care of us during our stay. Our son had a wonderful time playing with their son - even with the language difference! We were able to make Il Glicine our home base and take day trips to the neighboring hilltop towns and the coast. We rented a car and would drive the hour to Colle d'Elsa to catch the bus to Florence. After staying in an apartment in Rome, our son's asthma was acting up pretty badly. Il Glicine was very clean and my son's asthma cleared up quickly in the new environment. We were able to obtain internet access in Casole d'Elsa - the neighboring town. We were very happy with our stay and will definitely come back!

"Tres bon séjour en Toscane"
Nous avons bien pu profiter de tout ce que peut nous offrir la Toscane dans ce charmant village, bien qu'il soit petit, les gens ont été tres accueillants, avenants, amicaux et nous ont aide a trouver les plus beaux endroits aux alentours, je recommande cette location a toute personne qui désire le calme de la campagne toscane, un panorama splendide et une gentillesse italienne unique au monde. Il est par contre préférable de voyager avec une voiture personnelle ou de location afin de pourvoir faire les visites, les courses ... Merci pour ce séjour!

"A special place not to be missed"
We spent a wonderful week in Il Glicine. The apartment is spacious, well equipped with spectacular views across the beautiful Tuscan hills. The village of Monteguidi is small and friendly and is a good base from which to explore Tuscany. The hosts Daniela and Francesco are very accommodating and made our stay a very special one. We will definitely return to Monteguidi and highly recommend it if you want to enjoy all that Tuscany offers.
