Our family stayed at Le Manzinaie August 2012. The cypress lined entrance as you enter the private property is stunning! After a long flight and a two and a half hour drive from Fiumicino airport we were welcomed by Marzia and Fiore who are the most hospitable people. Upon arrival they offered us refreshing drinks and they showed us around the property. The grounds are extremely well kept and the pool is pristine. It was greatly appreciated as we experienced temperatures hovering around the low 40's. The appartment is very well kept and there is everything you need there. One word of advise, you need to listen to Marzia and keep the shutters closed during the daytime. There are grocery stores nearby but my favorite is the COOP which is situated near the property. There is also an OBLO situated nearby where you can wash your clothes. The owners allow you to take fruits and vegetables from their property. The tomatoes were to die for and I could of lived off bruschetta alone! There are two wines estates near the property which are called Poliziano and Avignonesi. If you need any day trips planned or need any kind of info please make sure to ask Marzia. She knows everything there is to know and follow her directions as they are spot on. Dont be afraid to venture as Marzia will get you there and get you back! We got so brave we even drove to France! Marzia is better than the GPS! Also there is a little restaurant called Renatos, situated near the property and the food is very decent and prices are decent too.
There is a hospital nearby in case of any mishaps.
Marzia and Fiore were kind enough to invite us to supper one evening! The food was delicious and the company great. It gives all the visitors a chance to get to know one another.
We had the opportunity to meet their wonderful daughter Alice who is a univeristy student and speaks several languages.
When vising Tuscany please make sure to visit Cortona which is only 20 mins. away from the property....and Marzia will suggest other day trips. They are all excellent.
Please do not hestitate to rent this property whether you are a couple or travelling as a family.
You will not regret Le Manzinaie. This trip to Tuscany has been a most memorable one and given the chance I would do it all over again and I would stay at Le Manzinaie again.
Marzia, Fiore and Alice at Le Manzinaie will forever own a little piece of my heart......
