We stayed here for four nights during the last week of October while we took day trips to many of the hill towns in Tuscany. This is a working farm...vineyard and olives with two apartment buildings. One that is used in the winter...which was closed and the other for the rest of the year. The owner is a doctor but... More

The place is an old farmhouse wherein the apartments are situated. It is very spacey but do not expect a lot of comfort. The kitchen is OK and if you like to prepare your food the supermarket is at about 3 kilometres along the road in a small town where you find two restaurants. The farmhouse is situated in a... More

We had an excellent 2 day stay at Agriturismo La Grotta Di Montecchino. The location was fantastic. Although we had a car, we chose to get the bus into Siena - the bus stop is outside the front gate of the property. The bus stop in Siena was only 10 min walk to II Campo! We were offered breakfast at... More

Also our first stay was fantastic, but we were very surprised about the lots of work they have done to make feel people good! Our apartment was fresh painted with... More

We recently had the misfortune to stay at this pitiful establishment. It would appear that the owner created this accomodation from old farm outbuildings and the standards applied in renovating them were at best poor and at worst dangerous. The buildings obviously have a damp problem which was not addressed and is now causing mould and plaster loss throughout the... More

We want to return to La Grotta di Montecchino, but cannot until they purchase new mattresses. We had only one good night of sleep in six. Otherwise, it was beautiful, gorgeous countryside and the quintessential Tuscany experience. We had rustic but cute accommodations and they were very clean. Location was close to Siena and much we wanted to see in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the rural aspects of the farmhouse - peaceful, quiet, a comfortable and spacious apartment. La Grotta is well placed to visit a wide range of towns and sights. The owner and Max were most helpful and made us feel very welcome. Max passed on lots of useful information about the local area and which were the best... More

If you are a light sleeper/ annoyed by barking dogs, you may not be comfortable staying here. There seems to be a kennel behind the main group of apartments, and what seemed to be a feeding frenzy erupted at intervals throughout the day. We requested a change in accommodation immediately (absolutely no refunds for our week's booking when we spoke... More

We were on our honeymoon and this was our first stop in our Europe tour. We booked the apartment online at the last minute and it turned out to be an excellent choice. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The landscape was very beautiful and the apartments were clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed at La Grotta di Montecchino for a week and I'm pleased to report that things have very much improved. Tony has now a Manager called Max, who was extremely charming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Our apartment was dark, but people should remember that when it is hot, the apartment will be cool. That... More
