“What a wonderful place to stay to explore Tuscany”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

Matteo and his family were extremely helpful as soon as we arrived. They helped us settle in and gave us lots of information about the surrounding area and which places to visit. The accommodation was perfect, with gorgeous surroundings and well equipped. We also had use of their beautiful garden and exclusive parking inside the village in their garden.

We would definately like to return to this little gem and would definately recommend it to anyone in the future.

L' ospitalità sincera è al centro del nostro modo d'essere ed è anche per questo che diamo sempre ai nostri clienti un sacco d'informazioni riguardanti le cose da vedere, le attività da svolgere, le pietanze gastronomiche tipiche da assaggiare assolutamente. E su richiesta consigliamo ristoranti dove andare a cena.

Brother and sister Matteo and Lisabetta run this charming cottage in the walled town of Monteriggioni. It has a lounge area, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom; much more than we needed, but the price was very reasonable and it meant we could stay in the village. Matteo and Lisabetta were the most charming hosts who tried to anticipate our every need. If you want five-star luxury with room service, this is not for you, but there are restaurants in the village and I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wanted the experience of staying within the walls of the village, surrounded by stunning views of Tuscany and within a short drive from Sienna.

Grazie per aver soggiornato nella nostra struttura chiamata "Monteriggioni Castello" e per aver ricordato la nostra ospitalità in questa recensione. La nostra struttura non è un Hotel ma formalmente siamo un "Affittacamere" un po' particolare perché offriamo al posto di camere dei meravigliosi appartamenti di charme. Si tratta di vere e proprie suite dei sogni. Case dotate di tutti i confort e accessori che permettono ai turisti di vivere un' esperienza completamente diversa dal comune. Vogliamo che i nostri clienti siano in un ambiente di lusso e si sentano come nella propria casa. Si tratta come dicevo di "un' esperienza" diversa riservata solo a pochi fortunati trattandosi di un numero limitato di appartamenti.
Chi è stato nostro ospite può confermare !!!! Fino a poco tempo fa non avevamo neppure un sito internet, ci piaceva nasconderci nel web ma renderci visibili su tripadvisor di modo che la nostra clientela si basasse solo sul passa parola. Grazie per essere stati nostri clienti a "Monteriggioni Castello". Matteo ed Elisabetta De Martino

We stayed at Monteriggioni Castello for one week in late May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay (http://www.monteriggionicastello.net/) - the De Martino family own the apartment and live across the yard in a separate house. Amelia, Matteo and Elizabetta greeted us very warmly, and had many helpful suggestions of places we should visit.

The apartment couldn't have been better suited for our needs - a quiet and comfortable place to come home to after a long day sightseeing. It is very private, yet within easy access to the Autostrada and smaller highways. It is well appointed with a comfortable sofa, TV, tables and chairs for indoor or patio meals, and a good sized bathroom. The well laid out kitchen has all the implements and appliances needed, from a microwave oven to a toaster. For two people it was perfect but there is a second bedroom with two twin beds, perhaps best suited for a family with children, rather than two couples. We only used the master bedroom, a good sized room with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, a door that opens onto the small patio and an immensely comfortable queen size bed. The whole apartment is tastefully decorated with artwork depicting the typical Tuscan countryside, white stone walls, thick wooden beams, dark wood furniture and persian style area carpets over terra-cotta tile floors. Rather than feeling like you are renting an apartment, it's more like borrowing a friend's home while they are away. All your needs are taken into consideration - from a good nights sleep on a fine bed, to books on the area to read, DVDs to watch when you feel lazy, and wine glasses in the cabinet for drinking that fine Brunello you just bought!

We arrived after 10 days in Sicily, so we needed to do some laundry and Amelia was very helpful showing us how to use the washing machine and letting us hang some clothes in the garden. She also told us where to buy groceries, from the local Coop supermarket in nearby Castellina Scalo. They are friendly and have everything you need to cook your own meals, but when you don't feel like cooking for yourself, there are many places to eat.

Monteriggioni has several lovely shops with local products for sale, trattorias, gelaterias and a fine restaurant, Il Pozzo (http://www.ilpozzo.net/), where we had reservations for dinner our first night and enjoyed every bite. For more casual eating Roberta and Graziano run Conca d'Oro Pizzeria (http://www.pizzeriaconcadoro.it) in Panzano, about 20 mins. north of Monteriggioni - simply the finest pizza we have ever had - if you love good food, you must visit their Osteria!

Matteo showed us a book filled with pamphlets of the many things to do in the area; museums, wineries, spas, horseback riding, etc... but our special mention goes to Stefano, Gianna and Giovanni who took us on a wonderful dawn balloon ride over Monteriggioni (http://www.flyballoon.it). Afterwards, we shared a fantastic breakfast with Proseco and great conversation at Bar dell'Orso at the bottom of the hill outside the walls of Monteriggioni. They were the ones to tell us we must go to Panzano and try the pizza at Conca d'Orro Pizzeria. Meeting genuine people like them makes a holiday truly memorable!

The only slight negative we encountered staying at Monteriggioni Castello was parking. Monteriggioni is a small walled town with limited space for cars. Visitors must park outside the walls, however the De Martino family generously allowed us to park in their back garden, but Elizabetta's friendly dog, Genevera, has a knack for dashing out the gate bound for exploration. Perhaps some dog training lessons for Genevera? There is space in front of the apartment, but Matteo explained that is used by the next door 4 star hotel (Hotel Monteriggioni) for their customers, but we were able to use it for conveniently loading and unloading our suitcases.

Lastly, church bells are part of Italy, no matter where you go and the local church, Santa Maria Assunta is no exception. Bells ring every morning around 7:30 - so don't expect to sleep in if you are a light sleeper! But what are you doing sleeping anyway, when there is so much beauty outside to see?!

If you like to be served, then stay at a hotel instead, but if you are like us and prefer to do things your own way, this is an ideal location. It is quiet, cozy and right in the middle of the Chianti, Val d'Elsa and Val d'Orcia regions.

Our family stumbled across this hidden gem while visiting the castello of Monteriggioni (which is an enclosed fort) This beautiful little house is within the fort,with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The beds are to die for,we did not find anything else in Italy that was of the high standard,and good value of this place.It is also a very good central base to view Tuscany. By car 20mins Florance, 1 hour Pizza, 10mins Siana. Situated in a wine area ,the vistas around the fort are beautiful, and some of the best bush/trail walking is in this area.Ranging from half hour to full day walks. Definitely worth staying here

We traveled though Tuscany choosing our accommodations on the spot in places we liked. When we arrived at Monteriggioni Castello we saw that this is the most perfect holiday house in Tuscany! Romantic atmosphere of the tiny medieval city, very beautiful interior, wide rooms and very friendly owners. We like to cook and there is a nice kitchen with all appliances and a wonderful tiny garden with dinner table. This is a pace I would really recommend!

We found Monteriggioni castello the perfect place to stay in Tuscany. Situated within the walls of Monteriggioni, the castello is a two bedroom house with the most divine beds imaginable. It is easy to get around Tuscany as it is close to Siena, Florence and some of the smaller jewels such as San Gimignano.
The hosts, Matteo and Elisabetta are always on hand to offer advice or suggestions on itineraries or to provide those little extra comforts such as extra towels, blankets, or access to the extensive Dvd collection. We highly recommend Monteriggioni castello for authenic Tuscan accommodation close to all amenities and tourist destinations.

We also recommend Anitca Trattoria Taverna de Gallo in Castellina Scalo for the best food in Italy and the best waitress and chef in the business!! Extra value and great atmosphere. Desserts to die for.

We are so glad we stumbled across this beautiful place and the hosts! what a lovely family Matteo, Elizabeth and Mum,so friendly.
The only regret, we wanted to stay! Now that we have found this beautiful place we will make sure to stay longer next time. The apartment was really lovely, a home away from home. It is in the walls of the Castle next door to the owners. Highly recommended, and we did a lot of travelling this trip.
