“Our second visit was just as good as the first”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

After having such a wonderful stay here 2 years ago we decided to return to Le Manzinaie as it's such a fantastic base for exploring Tuscany and the surrounding area. My wife, two sons and I loved every minute, whether relaxing by the pool, being entertained by Marzia, Alice and Fiore over a fine meal (the pear and plum cake for pudding was the best cake I've ever had!), or exploring towns such as Cortona or Civita.

Once again we stayed in the Girasole apartment, which was perfect for our stay and ideal for the family. My two children picked tomatoes and huge courgettes from the garden to help us make our own meals and all the shops you need - supermarket, bakery, launderette etc - are nearby for anything you can't pick yourself.

My youngest son celebrated his 7th birthday towards the end of the week and Marzia and Alice came around with a birthday cake to help him celebrate and make him feel special. There were plenty of tears when it was time to leave.

I cannot recommend Le Manzinaie highly enough. It's a beautiful place run by a wonderful family and I'm sure this won't be our last visit.

My parents have stayed at Le Manzinaie several times over the past decade, so I have heard a great number of stories and rave reviews about this beautiful farmhouse and its very special owners. In celebration of my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary this year, our extended family of 11 experienced the true joy of staying at Le Manzinaie for a week. Tears immediately pooled in my eyes when we were greeted with hugs and kisses from Marzia, Fiore and Alice. They were every bit as warm and welcoming as I had imagined, and their home and the surrounding grounds were more picturesque than described.

Our family occupied the two small houses on the grounds and one of the farmhouse apartments. Each of the accommodations was unique in style yet had a similar welcoming, comfortable feel. As Americans, we appreciated the coffee pot, hair dryer, and access to AC (although we didn’t have to use it even though it was 90+ degrees outside). The kitchen stocked with milk, eggs, coffee, bread, bottle of wine, fresh plums from Fiore’s trees, and other staples was an incredible bonus. The pool and secure, enclosed grounds gave the five children in our group (ages 5-13) a wonderful place to play and explore, making the adults feel that the kids were safe.

While staying at Le Manzinaie we had the pleasure of mixing with other guests from Canada, Australia, and the Netherlands, and everyone was just as pleased with the accommodations as we were. As mentioned by other reviewers, the home-cooked group meal was the best food of our trip, and the gathering was a terrific opportunity to enjoy the company of new friends.
We found the location of Le Manzinaie to be very convenient to the many towns that we visited by car or train, journeys of 15 minutes – 1 ½ hours – Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, Montepuliciano, Pienza, and Cortona. Grocery stores, laundry facilities, and rail stations were also within easy reach. A special highlight of the trip was a visit to the Avignonesi winery, just 15 minutes (at the most) from Le Manzinaie. The tour was informative, the grounds lovely, the views magnificent, and the lunch (optional but pricy) a leisurely event to remember.

Prior to our stay at Le Manzinaie, my family flew to France and two of our suitcases were ‘misplaced’ by the airline. The luggage finally caught up with us while in Tuscany, and Alice (multi-lingual and always cheerful) was extremely helpful in dealing with the customs paperwork that was necessary to have our bags delivered. I’m not sure what we would have done without her.

Le Manzinaie was a true Tuscan experience in every sense of the word – historic charm, lovely scenery and warm, lively hospitality. Both home and hosts hold a special place in our hearts.

We had the most wonderful time al Le Manzinaie. My In-Laws have stayed here 6 times and loved it so much they invited their children and grandchildren for a vacation of a lifetime. The 11 of us stayed in three separate villas for an entire week. The longer we stayed the harder it was to come home. Martzia, Alica and Fiore are incredible hosts who care for thier property with extensive detail. We enjoyed spending as much time in the garden, pools and grounds as we did our villa. The villa is located so centrally we could take day trips out to Tuscan villages and come home in the afternoon or evening at our leisure. The other guests where from other coutries as well, and I think how wonderful it is to vacation with people from Canada, Netherlands and Australia all while in Italy. I can not wait to go back.

There is not much more we can add to the fabulous reviews already written for Podere Le Manzinaie. Marzia, Alice and Fiore are the perfect hosts and their home is truly wonderful.
Our apartment was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated by Marzia herself!
Alice was very helpful providing touring suggestions and directions that enabled us to make the most of our short time there.
This is a great spot for families that can serve as a base for touring the local area. There are many beautiful, historic towns nearby that are perfect for visiting during the daytime leaving plenty of time in the afternoon or evening for a refreshing swim in their wonderful pool. We definitely plan to return!

This is our 6th trip to Italy and our first time at Podere Le Manzinaie.
Marzia, Alice and Fiore are the most warm and inviting hosts you can imagine. From the time you enter the gates Of Le Manzinale you are made to feel special. They go out of their way to accomodate every need you may have and to make sure that you are comfortable with your accomodations.

When Fiore, knocks on the door in the morning to share a basket of fresh fruit, just harvested from his garden, can it really get better than that?

If anyone is considering a trip to this part6 of Tuscany I urge them to consider Le Manzinaie, it will make your holiday really special.

Fantastic place. Can only rave about Marcia, Fiore and Alice. Wonderful people. Did such a great job. Went there in 2001 and back this July 2013. Nothing has changed in service,all still fabulous. Gardens are beautiful and now matured. Again fantastic! Wish I could come back next year, we had a very relaxing holiday.

If you've ever dreamed of an idyllic Tuscan Villa nestled in a beautiful Tuscan Valley with a long drive way lined with picturesque Cypress Trees, you'd be in luck when you visit Le Manzinaie! The only thing that surpasses these excellent accommodations and beautiful surroundings would be meeting the absolutely wonderful Italian family, Fiore, Mariza, Alice, who are the owners and fabulous hosts ..... and of course we can't forget Rufus! ( especially since we also have a dog Rufus at home in Nova Scotia) We loved visiting many beautiful areas and cities in Tuscany but couldn't wait to return to Le Manzinaie in the evening where we were always greeted by this warm family who would offer wine or cappuccinos upon our return. They hosted an amazing authentic Italian dinner for our family and 2 other couples staying at Le Manzanaie which far surpassed our expectations and was certainly one of the highlights of our entire trip. I can't wait to return to Tuscany someday and would love return to Le Manzanaie to greet Tuscany and our dear friends once again!
