“The Griccioli family create an awesome experience for their Villa/Vineyard Guests!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

In May 2011 I spent a magical week in one of the MonteChiaro Vacation Villas. I was greeted by the Griccioli brothers - Alesssandro and Pietro -- big smiles -- a bottle of wine -- a Villa on the hillside overlooking the MonteChiaro Vineyards and Olive Groves -- and a view of Siena in the foreground! Their sensitivity to my "first dream trip" to Italy elicited many ideas of ways to spend my holiday! Their family history from the 1300's was fascinating -- family crest - family estate - castle nearby!! -- Their grandfather who brought mastercard to the Bank of Italy -- real estate holdings/knowledge -- were a fascinating back drop to help me understand the "business community" in Italy! As a technology professional -- I was quite imipressed with the sophistication of their global technical "connection" which enhances their "community and brings the world to their doorsteps" - interesting visitors from near and far -- to enhance my over-all experience. I look forward to returning to the MonteChiaro Villas again -- and "reconnecting" with the Griccioli family -- who EXCEL in hospitality "customized" to their guests needs!!~
Thank you Alesssandro and Pietro

Alessandro is an immaculate host and his family's vineyard is just devine....
We were fortunate enough to have Alessandro show us around the Montechiaro Estate on our visit (his knowledge on wine-making amazing) and both the Adults and children (my daughetr celebrated her 7th birthday here and was given large princess keys to the estate and made to feel very special indeed) in our party were fascinated with not only the wine making facilities, but also the lovely grounds where they grow their own vegetables.
A lovely lunch at the Estate was organised and well catered for with local wines and food in abundance. I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting the Siena region, this is a "true Italy experience".. Ciao.
