Our first stay was in 2004 on the advice of someone on slowtrav.com . This was to be our first time for a week in the countryside of southern Tuscany (yet only down the road to Montepulciano and other places). We loved it and returned in 2007 and again in early sept of this year. Apts. are reasonably priced, lovely and immaculately clean, with all the comforts of home. Comfortable beds/soft sheets, sattelite TV, computer access or wifi for your laptop and much more. Host Nico Pannevis is multilingual, gracious and enthusiastic about making his guests at home in this beautiful country resort. For easy access to the gorgeous Val dOrcia and it's many hilltop towns, this location is terrific. We traveled for many years throughout Italy and this is one of our favs.
