“Wonderful Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My husband and I traveled for more than two weeks in Italy in October and dearly wish we had spent more time at La Bruciata with Laura and her family. This was an entirely different experience from being an ordinary tourist in a hotel. Unfortunately, we had scheduled only two nights with Laura due to stormy weather. Even though every place we visited in Italy was wonderful, the two nights we spent with Laura are my strongest and happiest memories. It was as if we had landed in the middle of a beautiful Tuscan postcard; the view out our bedroom window was amazing. The apartment was great and seemed fairly new--the bathroom was modern and the bed was extremely comfortable, which is important to my husband and me who are in our sixties.

We ate both dinners at La Bruicata with Laura's mother, Marissa, cooking and with Elisa, Laura's completely adorable 2 year old daughter, "helping" to serve. It was such a relief to have excellent, healthy and delicious home cooking in a warm, happy, family setting after our less satisfying restaurant meals. Breakfasts were wonderful too, and Laura makes a perfect cappuccino. Much of the fruit, all of the jams, the olive oil, the wine and so on are from Laura's farm. We experienced a wonderful bit of Tuscan life in two days. I definitely recommend a longer visit, and we will return.

My wife and I spent a marvelous week at La Bruciata. The location was just what we were looking for - out in the country in the middle of vineyards and olive groves with a magnificent view of the Tuscan hillsides - and yet 15 minutes or less from Montepulciano. The two room apartment was very spacious and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen which we didn't use much due to the excellent 5 course meals cooked by Laura and family! We could have simply stayed in our apartment for the full week and considered the stay worth it. On the occasions when we chose to eat elsewhere, Laura recommended restaurants in the surrounding towns which we found to be great choices. Laura also recommended driving routes and sites to see that were off the normal tourist routes and which we would have missed otherwise. The grounds were well kept and decorated with beautiful roses, pomegranate trees, and flowering schrubs. The swimming pool was beautiful and large, and there were several vine-covered arbors to sit under and completely unwind after a full day of touring. They even had hammocks if you needed a little nap!

The views of Montepulciano and San Biagio Church on the short drive to Montepulciano were breathtakingly beautiful and varied during different parts of the day. From La Bruciata we made many comfortable day trips west to Sienna, Montalcino, and San Gimignano, east to Cortona, and even as far north as the national parc above Arezzo.

We were treated like family at La Bruciata, and consider it to be a trip highlight to spend time with Laura and her family, learn about local customs and foods, enjoy the company of other travelers from around the world, and just simply relax!

My grown daughters joined their mom and dad for a week in Tuscany. We chose La Bruciata for several reasons. The agriturismos were recommended by Rick Steves. There were two bedrooms AND two bathrooms. We could prepare some of our own meals if we wished. The location was perfect for traveling to many other destinations. Breakfast was complimentary and if we chose to have dinner there, we were treated to authentic Italian cooking. The apartment charges were well within reason, and in many cases, much more than reasonable. La Bruciata had areas where sitting outside and enjoying a glass of wine and the view after a long day of touring were absolutely good for the body and the soul. These are a few of the reasons we chose La Bruciata. On the extra plus side was the hospitality shared with us by Laura and her family, the food and wine were so wonderful. The espressos every morning were the perfect way to begin the day in Italy. Our apartment was exceptionally clean and well stocked.
La Bruciata is THE perfect place to stay.

Our family of 5 enjoyed a few days after Christmas in La Bruciata. We were in a beautiful 2 room/2 bath apartment that had each room overlooking breathtaking Tuscany. The apartment was perfect and comfortable. We ate an amazing, delicious 5 course dinner at their restaurant 2 nights. The kitchen in the apt was fully equipped for the night we just stayed in and cooked. We can't say enough about how warm and friendly Laura and her family made us feel. This location was perfect for a wonderful family vacation in Tuscany. Everything was very close by.

My daughter and I enjoyed an idyllic week in Tuscany, based at La Bruciata. Laura and her family welcomed us with a home-cooked dinner, treated us to delicious breakfast buffets, gifted us with La Bruciata's olive oil. We felt like family from our arrival and hated to say good-bye when our week was up. We had a rental car and found all sorts of adventures and scenic places around the many bends in the Tuscan roads. Montepulciano is a beautiful nearby hilltown, one we visited several times. Our apartment was well appointed, boasting a fireplace, full stove, oven and refrigerator, a pretty bedroom with balcony overlooking the beautiful landscape, and best of all a skylit bathroom complete with bidet and surround shower that made you feel like you were at a spa. We had many choices, but we are thrilled that we decided to stay at La Bruciata.

Great Thanks to Laura and all at La Bruciata. We had a wonderful time there and enjoyed everything. It is a great location near Montepulciano with excellent foot and wine. Rooms were great and big enough and the place of this house is incredible.
