Perfectly located, in the shadow of Montepulciano with incredible views of the town on the hill, olive groves and orchards and lovely gardens surrounding Ortaglia, this was our home base for exploring (what we think is) the best part of Tuscany. Terenzio and Mara are warm welcoming hosts who will make you feel right at home. Terenzio can give you... More

This was my first trip to Ortaglia Let me say, if they need a pool cleaner, I'm happy to move there and sleep on raft in the pool! We were a large group, taking over the entire property, that never felt cramped. The rooms are well appointed and the views are incredible. I keep closing my eyes and picturing the... More

No words can describe our experience at Relais Ortaglia. My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon and we actually planned to stay here only 2 days but extended it to 4 and could barely manage to leave at the end of our stay. The hosts were so gracious and wonderful to us. So passionate about their establishment.... More

Considering ourselves 'amateur chefs', we searched the offerings from 'Cooking Vacations' to find a location for our desire to travel with our very close friends to not only enjoy Tuscany, but to learn from it's many varied flavors and customs. We chose Villa Ortaglia because of the promise of personal cooking lessons but also escorted trips around the region. We... More

I felt right at home from the moment I stepped foot on this amazing property. The vistas from the pool, the house, and the grounds immediately let you know you are in the Tuscan region of Italy. This being our first trip to the area, I was afraid the beauty would be overrated, but not at Relais Ortaglia. Combine this... More

Let me start by saying we are picky about travel accommodations. Having said that, my husband and I just stayed 4 amazing nights at Relais Ortaglia. Terenzio and Mara are wonderful hosts and made everything easy and comfortable. We decided not to rent a car so Terenzio very graciously picked us up at the train station, arranged taxi service, and... More

It's been 8 years since my last visit to Ortaglia / Tuscany and Ortaglia is as charming and beautiful as ever! Loved waking up to its surroundings. Amazing! Terenzio and Mara are the most gracious hosts, and very knowledgeable about wine & Tuscan cooking. I love them to pieces! I highly recommend this place - lovely rooms, wonderful breakfast spread...

It has been quite some time since I stayed here, but I did want to write up a review as this villa is worth it! This was at the end of a week and a half visit to Italy, and it was an incredible way to relax and destress from the hustle and bustle of Rome and Florence. The owners... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“Between Arts and Paridise”. This certainly is the most appropriate way to describe the location of our farmhouse.In fact ORTAGLIA is casted towards the art of Montepulciano, with its roofs which show all the shades of garnet red, and the dome of San Biagio, third in the word for wideness and significance.On the same time the hill where the farmhouse stands out is plunged into the tranquillity and the charm of the tuscan countryside, muse of famous artists and poets.On the top of this hill, between art and paradise, in the middle of seventeen century have been laid the foundations of the ORTAGLIA farmhouse. ... more   less
