“Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing - the perfect holiday spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 for a stay in August 2010
people found this review helpful

I have stayed here several times with family and friends and we have always had a wonderful time. Iano is a peaceful little hamlet and the restaurant in the village is fab, with its terrace overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The apartments of Podere le Monache are well equipped, tranquil, cool oases from the Tuscan sunshine and the pool area, with its deckchairs and parasols, is a lovely place to relax with a cold drink. The garden is also very beautiful and the views across the valley are spectacular. There is a mini-mart across the road to fulfill all your grocery and ice-cream needs, and you can find banks, more restaurants and bigger supermarkets in the local larger town of Montaione, about 6km away. The owner of the apartments is a lovely lady, very friendly and helpful. Lots of people come back to Podere le Monache year after year and there are very good reasons for that. Highly recommended!
