Terenzio and Mara hosted my husband and I for two nights on our honeymoon, and it was everything we dreamed Tuscany would be. The scenery around the Relais is stunning, and it's a perfect home base from which to tour the Val D'Orcia and Montepulciano. Their warmth and hospitality was incredible, and we would not have been able to enjoy... More

We stayed here in September 2014 on our first trip to Italy. Our relationship with the owner, Terenzio, had already developed via email before we had arrived. He provided advice for other legs of our visit and graciously accommodated our need to change dates. We stayed in the "Honeymoon Suite", very nice and spacious with old Italian character. All of...

Ortaglia is the epitome of your Tuscan imagination. A wonderful central Tuscan location, especially accessible to Montepulciano, yet an easy drive to historic hillside towns throughout the region. The villa is truly a home decorated in traditional style. The bedrooms are large and well furnished. We had a beautiful room that overlooked the garden and vineyards and included an outside... More

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
