We had the best time at Maria's beautiful place! Very nice apartment with two large and bright bed rooms, fans and mosquito nets at the windows (yeah!!). The surroundings were absolutely stunning, situated among wineyards and olive trees. The pool area was really nice and a pleasure to come home to after a (hot) day of sightseeing in Montepulciano, Siena, Firenze etc. The best thing about our stay here? The hospitality! Maria and her family (incl. a very cute dog) made us all feel very welcome and really spoiled us with delicious breakfasts, ice cream by the pool and a really nice and relaxing atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place!

"A stunning traditional farmhouse in a divine setting."
This is a beautiful holiday property. There are two flats within the old farmhouse and the owners, Maria and Rinaldo, live below. The inside is charming and rustic. The kitchen is basic but has all the essentials. The farmhouse is on the hillside above the village and the private roof terrace looks out over the valley offering typical Tuscan views. Very rural so a car is essential. Near some beautiful medieval hill villages and towns. Florence accessible by train. The pool is stunning with views over the valley. Maria and Rinaldo are delightful- very friendly and helpful.
Thanks for staying with us. We really appreciate it - and, for taking the time to let us know what you thought of our accommodations. We look forward to welcoming you here again one day. Best wishes
