Stayed here in early June for four nights with eight of us. We loved the quietness of the property and the family feel that comes from it. Cecilia was incredibly accommodating and we literally had the property to ourselves, or at least it felt like it. Great rates and excellent wine.

Pros: Hospitality, minikitchen, free wine tasting, good wines, fair restaurant on the property. Cons: No WiFi in the apartment. Driving distance from both Montalchino and Piombaia winery. Run-down non-stick frying pans.

What a delight. We arrived in late afternoon after a long day of travel and were warmly greeted by Cecilia, the proprietress. She showed us to our apartment, which had a spectacular view of the Tuscan hills, a living room kitchenette, a bedroom with ancient beamed ceiling and king sized bed, and a bathroom big enough for 2 people at...

This was our favorite stop over our 2-week trip to Italy. If you want amenities & convenience, stay in a nice hotel in Florence & drive to the countryside. But for the rest of us who want something different & yet still very nice, this is it. A bit hard to find (google maps isn't entirely clear, so take directions... More

We just love the Montalcino area and are happy to have found this beautiful place. We will come again next year! Very friendly and familiar hosts. We loved the flat. Every day we enjoyed the pool outside and were happy to find it open also in fall. The restaurant in the house is perfect! The only thing to claim is,... More

We reserved a room for two nights. We got there at 3pm for a 3:30 check in. We were greeted by the maid who was very pleasant and helpful and checked us in early since the normal person wasn't there yet. I asked her if I should come down at 3:30 to pay for the room and do a proper... More

This was our first impression of Tuscany. We were shocked at the low price for such a beautiful large accommodation which included a kitchen. The hostess was gracious and welcoming, and we enjoyed the Italian breakfast which included lots of fresh fruit. The beds were firm and comfortable, and the adjoining restaurant "La Crocina" prepared delicious wild boar. We enjoyed... More

very good position, in a hilly and peaceful landscape, near the beautiful historical town of Montalcino. The apartment was very well furbished, spacious, with king size double bed and very big sofa-bed. Spacious bathroom. Everything was perfectly clean. Mosquito nets at the windows, no insects of any kind. Ideal swimming pool and jacuzzi surrounded by heaps of lavender. High quality... More

Based on a friend's recommendation we chose to stay here. Since its away from Montalcino, having your own car/transport is recommended. The place is very peaceful & away from the city noise/traffic - a welcome break for us after Rome, Venice & Florence ... We were the only ones staying here, so it added to the fun. The outdoor Jacuzzi... More

Spacious room with living room and a kitchenette. Beautiful and peaceful environment located next to Biondi Santi winery. We had good sleep for our 6 nights stay here. Friendly management. The restaurant next to it is also good. The only complain is that there is no in-room wifi, only in common sitting room and office. To stay here, you must... More
