“The best of the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We typically rent apartments when we travel to Europe and would rank Podere Le Manzinaie as the best of the best. Its location is ideal for day trips to the many Tuscan hill towns and beautiful surrounding countryside. Our ground floor apartment (the Rose) in the grand two-story farmhouse was a converted cattle stable with beautiful brick arches and hand stenciled detailing. The bathroom was luxurious, the bed large and comfortable, and the kitchen came supplied with breakfast-makings and basic cooking ingredients, which allowed us to easily shop at local markets and enjoy dinners in the apartment. Even in gray and rainy October when the pool was closed, the grounds were beautiful, and approaching the villa in the middle of farm fields on its long, tree-lined driveway is breathtaking. Marzia, Fiore, and Alice are most gracious hosts. They were never obtrusive, yet whenever we needed anything they were always available. They provided us with information on everything from the locations of the markets, restaurants and gas stations, to tips on weekly farmers markets, wine cellars and little-known charming towns. Their home-cooked dinner was both delicious and joyous—a true “Italian” dinner that went on for hours as we and the other guests got to know each other. They made us feel like we were part of their family and that Le Manzinaie was our home as well as theirs. Tip to visitors: program the latitude/longitude provided by Le Manzinaie into your GPS because the GPS in our rental car directed us to the wrong location when we used the address.

We spent a week of our honeymoon at Le Manzinaie and loved it. We had a spacious 1 bedroom self-catered apartment. We enjoyed buying food at the markets and making our own dinners at home. The grounds are so beautiful. We loved coming home from touring and having a bottle of wine and cheese in the garden. The family is so accommodating and eager to give you travel suggestions and directions to where you want to go. The dinner they cooked for us one night was spectacular. We had great conversation about life in Italy. We would definitely stay here again.

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!!!!!

Room Tip: There all good rooms and it is very quiet so you do not have to worry about any noise. You are in o...

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.
