“Fabulous Place In Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Pondere Le Manzinaie is definately a 5 star. The hospitality is better than any hotel I have every stayed in they are truely special people. I traveled with 2 sisters and our Mom and the accomdations were wonderful. We had 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 nice size bathrooms which was a definate plus for 4 women. They gave a very nice book with all the directions and differnet places to visit and what the highlights were for all the litte towns in Tuscany. They were always available and very helpful with making any kind of reservations from restaurants to the Wine Vineyards. I thank Marzia, Fiore, and Alice for a wonderful experienc in Tuscany!!!!!

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy. The highlight was definately our one week stay at Le Manzinaie during the last week of September. Marzia, Fiore, and Alice were so warm and friendly and helpful in every way! Regretfully, when we arrived, I was really sick. Fiore immediately stopped what ever he had been doing and took us to the emergency room where he stayed with us for the next 4 hours to be my interpreter and advocate for my care. I spoke no Italian...we could not have handled this on our own! He saved our trip!!! They have a wonderful orchard full of plums, pears, apples, etc where we picked fresh fruit every day, along with tomatoes from the garden. We had a wonderful dinner with our hosts and fellow guests...what fun!! We took many wonderful days trips, all with the aide of their wonderful printed directions on how to get there and get back home! We will definately be returning to Italy and know exactly where we will stay!!

We were fortune enough to spend a week in Podere Le Manzinaie in Tuscany this September. The family who ownes the property are gracious and helpful-treat you like their own family. The location is central to day trips in the area and the house and property itself is absolutely amazing.
The countryside is beautiful-hope to return again.

We love this place and the people who own it. This was, I think, our fifth visit to Le Manzinaie and Marzia, Fiore, and Alice. We are seniors who have traveled a good deal in Europe over the years starting in the late sixties. This is as good as it gets: True hospitality, the beauty of the countryside, a great home-cooked feast once a week, all the comforts of home including a vegetable garden,and easy access to the surrounding hill towns. We usually combine our visits with some language lessons at Il Sasso in Montepulciano, thereby giving ourselves the illusion we are doing more than enjoying the pool and the view. We even sent our son and his bride here for their honeymoon. It's just special.

We just returned from a remarkable week at Le Manzinaie! We truly felt like were in the heart of the Tuscan culture as Marzia, Fiore and Alice made us feel part of their family. From helping us to plan wonderful day trips to Florence, Montepulciano and Cartona to entertaining us with an exquisite home-cooked Italian dinner! We stayed in the most charming of villas! The bedroooms were a very nice size and the beds were comfy. The bathrooms were large compared to european standards and well equiped. The kitchen was well stocked and additionally, we enjoyed the lovely fruits from their garden and the delicious tomatoes! The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy the private courtyard each morning. After exploring the surrounding areas and towns, it was nice to take a couple days and just enjoy the beautiful pool area. Le Manzinaie exceeded all of our expectations and we cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: There were two couples and we enjoyed the stand-alone villa with a private and intimate courtyard.

Our family stayed at Le Manzinaie August 2012. The cypress lined entrance as you enter the private property is stunning! After a long flight and a two and a half hour drive from Fiumicino airport we were welcomed by Marzia and Fiore who are the most hospitable people. Upon arrival they offered us refreshing drinks and they showed us around the property. The grounds are extremely well kept and the pool is pristine. It was greatly appreciated as we experienced temperatures hovering around the low 40's. The appartment is very well kept and there is everything you need there. One word of advise, you need to listen to Marzia and keep the shutters closed during the daytime. There are grocery stores nearby but my favorite is the COOP which is situated near the property. There is also an OBLO situated nearby where you can wash your clothes. The owners allow you to take fruits and vegetables from their property. The tomatoes were to die for and I could of lived off bruschetta alone! There are two wines estates near the property which are called Poliziano and Avignonesi. If you need any day trips planned or need any kind of info please make sure to ask Marzia. She knows everything there is to know and follow her directions as they are spot on. Dont be afraid to venture as Marzia will get you there and get you back! We got so brave we even drove to France! Marzia is better than the GPS! Also there is a little restaurant called Renatos, situated near the property and the food is very decent and prices are decent too.
There is a hospital nearby in case of any mishaps.
Marzia and Fiore were kind enough to invite us to supper one evening! The food was delicious and the company great. It gives all the visitors a chance to get to know one another.
We had the opportunity to meet their wonderful daughter Alice who is a univeristy student and speaks several languages.
When vising Tuscany please make sure to visit Cortona which is only 20 mins. away from the property....and Marzia will suggest other day trips. They are all excellent.
Please do not hestitate to rent this property whether you are a couple or travelling as a family.
You will not regret Le Manzinaie. This trip to Tuscany has been a most memorable one and given the chance I would do it all over again and I would stay at Le Manzinaie again.
Marzia, Fiore and Alice at Le Manzinaie will forever own a little piece of my heart......

Room Tip: If you are adamant about having air conditioning please rent the villas.

I can't say enough about this place and the family who runs it. It is 15 minutes outside of Montepulciano and about a mile to the nearest store. We loved the surrounding towns and found this to be the perfect base to explore Tuscany. You do need a car if you stay here. We brought our infant boys and the hosts were very helpful and welcoming. We used our private patio almost every night to cook dinner and enjoy a bottle of wine. The house was very clean and had a great Tuscan feel. The grounds are beautiful and we picked delicious fruit from the trees in the garden every morning. The last night we had dinner with the host family which was a blast and the food was superb. They put their heart and soul into the place and it truly shows.
