I have just recently returned from 4 nights at this marvelous place. My adult cousins and I had 3 of the 4 apartments. They were all clean, spacious, and absolutely gorgeous. Everywhere I looked there was Tuscan beauty. The pool and the grounds were lovely and we watched two sunsets with wine and antipasti at a lovely setting out next... More

Feel like staying home in marvelously Tuscan atmosphere! The room is comfy and oversized with fully equipped facilities. There is a public living room in which TV and cafe bar are provided, also a nice pool in which I could enjoy panoramic view while soaking myself. The surrounding garden is not less interesting. And the hosts are welcoming and so... More

I have been to Il Macchione for 6 nights with my wife and have been very satisfied. The place is clean and sufficiently equipped to do cooking and spare us some restaurant evenings. Pretty central to the Tuscan country. I am going back this year.

This Agriturismo was the best place we stayed in for our entire trip to Europe. The rooms were very spacious, clean and quiet. The breakfasts were some of the best I have ever had with delicious fresh-baked pies, pastries and panna cotta were available everyday. The owner was very nice and even offered us a tour of his environmentally friendly... More

This place embodies everything I thought of when planning a Tuscany trip. It has a great location near Pienza, perfect views, an authentic typical - and very elegant - interior and exterior design. And, what's important, a very good breakfast, the best we had during this journey. Everything is well organized. Would stay again.

Our last stop on our Tuscany tour and we saved the best til last! This Agritourism is very comfortable, well located for touring southern Tuscany and Francesco was a great host, offering us loads of photographic locations, restaurant recommendations, local area maps etc. I agree with previous reviewers that better sign posting off the main road would help - we...

Imagine you've travelled all the way from San Francisco, California, with husband and 3 young kids for their first trip to Europe, flown into Rome via London (a 24 hour journey), rented a car, driven several hours only to reach the outskirts of Pienza when you receive a call: "Sorry, no room for you at Il Macchione, your room is...

Il Macchione - what a stunner. The location is awesome only five minutes out of the picturesque Pienza. The views across the valley are amazing especially with the sunlight bouncing off the pool. The breakfast is beautiful with a huge range of home made cakes which were delicious. The apartment we had was comfortable and our daughter had her cotbed... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The grounds are beautiful, exactly the type of environment I wanted to stay in while in "Tuscany." It's quiet, private and only a km away from Pienza, which is a gorgeous town. The rooms are very nice with great added features like a local wine selection... More
