Very clean, and professional. The family that lives there is delightful. Not very geared towards small children. The pool was beautiful but stays cold during the day. Close to the town of Pienza great for shopping and restaurants.

There are few places that have such a stunning backdrop, from the rolling golden hills to the picturesque village of pienza on the hilltop. It's just utterly breathtaking. However points of interest to be considered: Rooms are large and homely, although with no air conditioning, the nights can be very long!! (there is a fan in the room but it... More

Several amenities that were in the Rick book (e.g. olive grove, vineyard) were no longer there. While the buildings themsevles were luxe-rustic, the overall experience was a bit sterile. This was our first trup to Italy; during our tours, we ran into other agriturismos (wine tasting, restaurant) that were much more feature-rich ang guest-centric.

Terrapille was truly beautiful and the view of Pienza and the countryside is spectacular. We expected it to be a little more bustling with activity and other people in the dining room etc. otherwise we would have booked our own villa. The place was really quiet and we had to call once we got there and wait a half hour... More

If you tour Tuscany, definitely stay in an agritourismo - preferably this one! It is located just outside Pienza. a beautiful medieval town, busy with tourists by day, and yours to enjoy with the locals by night. It is ideally situated within striking distance of Tuscany's hill towns, about halfway between Montalcino and Montepulciano. The B&B is modern and clean,... More

My daughter and I were fortunate to "stumble" on this place looking for a night to stay. Very nice and secluded but close to the town of Pienza with magnificent views of the town and countryside. Comfortable very large room, large sitting/living area with what looked like a full kitchen. I hear that Lucia's mother does cooking classes. What a... More

Just what we were looking for in the Tuscan countryside. A spectacular panoramic view, just outside of the quaint hill town of Pienza. Extremely quiet. Lucia and her parents could not have been any nicer, even driving us into town on a snowy day to pick up provisions at the store.

My wife and I spent two weeks in Germany and Italy and our 2 nights at Terrapille were the best of the trip. This place is simply amazing and breathtaking. This is the postcard Italian Tuscan dream! The view is amazing and the little town of Pienza was delightful. Very good food at the restaurants there! Lucia and her parents... More

We spent 3 nights here on our honeymoon trip through Italy. I can't recommend the Agriturismo experience enough - after staying in city centers the rest of the trip, staying in the countryside is a great change of pace. Terrapille in particular is just perfect - a windy road lined with cypress trees leads up the hill to a villa... More

We stayed at Terrapille for 2 nights. We traveled with friends and rented an apartment with 2 bedrooms, common room and a bathroom. Nothing could be better. The view and location were amazing!

The Mangiavacchi family is glad to invite you to Pienza at Agriturismo Terrapille The ancient farm house is situated on a hill facing Pienza and enjoys one of the most panoramic positions in the Orcia Valley.
