Recently returned from a trip to Italy that included 8 days in Tuscany. We stayed at Monaciano and treated it as a home base. Only 10 minutes from Siena and about 30-45 minutes from a variety of other lovely hilltop towns (Pienza, Montalchino, Sam Gimi, Radda in Chianti). Had a 2 bedroom apartment with a pool that met the needs of my boys (ages 16 and 12). No wi fi except at the house but hey, unplugging for a few days ain't a bad thing! Our unit only had a stovetop and no BBQ which made cooking a little challenging. Unit was very clean, private and quiet. We were the only people there so had the whole pool to ourselves! Beautiful sunsets! My only negative feedback was that if we asked for anything (detergent for the dishwasher, extra towels) we always had to wait 1-2 days. When we didn't receive any detergent for the dishwasher we were told to just go and buy it ourselves. I would encourage the staff to have a few of these on hand for guests and maybe be a little bit more service oriented.
