We wanted to book a room at Castello delle Quattro Torre in Sienna and it was fully booked so we were offered the apartment at Le Pietre Vive di Montaperti and after reading the internet reviews we booked it for 3 nights. It was a good choice and we enjoyed our stay at this nice farmhouse. The apartment is spacious and clean and it suited us well for a family with 2 small kids. Nonna was a welcoming host and she cooked a traditional Tuscany dinner for us and some other guests in the restaurant one evening and that was one of the best meals we've had in Tuscany. Thanks Nonna and Nicola and we are definitely planning to return here next time we are in Tuscany.
