The Pietramonti Estate was a fabulous place to stay at and use as a home base to discover the Val d'Orcia where the most typical sceneries of the Tuscan countryside can be found. The house was just recently fully renovated from the old farm that used to stand there. The interior decoration of the house is just awesome, managing to be highly elegant and to make you feel very cozy at the same time. The bedrooms are very large with stylish beds and plush cushions. Breakfast in the morning facing the ornamental garden was a real treat ! And getting into the jacuzzi on a late summer night is a truly cosmic experience.
Peter and Charles are very endearing hosts who make you feel instantly part of the place. Special mention for Harold & Maud ! They (Peter and Charles !) know all about what to do in the area and were always available to give you tips that no guide book will ever give you. The house is great as a starting point for walks in the countryside. Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino are all easily accessible by car as well as Sienna, the Chianti region and Florence on a day trip. Let's just hope that the place does not become so popular that booking can only be done months in advance !!
