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

We stayed at Il Macchione in January 2014 with our 7 and 5 year old daughters and both sets of grandparents. It was idyllic and I can only imagine how wonderful it would be in summer. Francesco and his family were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were super great and we absolutely loved Isadoro the beautiful cat. The villa rooms were... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Il Macchione. I arrived early on Easter Sunday and the staff did everything to get me into my room as soon as possible. The owner Francesco is terrific and speaks perfect English. I miss Tuscany and the hospitality already! Clean and spacious accommodation with amazing olive oil produced on the property. Very... More

I am an expat living in Florence, Italy and this past weekend I had relatives come to visit. We decided to stay at this amazing agriturism for three days. It was a true dream holiday. All around us was like we were living in a painting. The location was perfect (1 km from Pienza) and half way between Montepulciano and... More

The rooms are huge, the beds soft, the shower hot. The hosts welcoming with hone made breakfasts, fresh coffee and their own wine, olive oil and pecorino cheese. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights stay. It's a perfect base for Pienza and Valle D'Orcia. Francesco's recommendations for local restaurants were great

This gem of a place made a mid January visit to Tuscany the perfect weekend getaway! The warm and welcoming family, including Francesco, his wife and mother and father made us feel like we were home. Francesco speaks English and will delight you with some wonderful stories. He was very helpful in planning a cooking course for us in their... More

We had a wonderful time in Pienza with Francesco and his family. The accommodations were very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast included homemade cakes, cheese, and panna cotta with fruit...yummy! A perfect place to stay for a Tuscan vacation. The location is convenient to many of the finest wineries in the region. Daytrips to Montalcino and Montepulciano were easy drives... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating to XVIIIth century and close to nearby Pienza, amidst the view of the Val d'Orcia, a pleasant and panoramic area, lies the ancient stone farmhouse of Podere "Il Macchione". Completely rebuilt with great respect for the original design, the farmhouse has been subdivided into four lodgings and a common room. The building's proportionally pleasant and soothing forms evoke simplicity and harmony while overlooking an absolutely unique and uncontaminated view, recently numbered among the worldwide property of humanity. ... more   less
