“10 days in wonderful Tuscany”
Reviewed October 2, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a terrific 10 day stay at the "Casa Grimaldi" near Montaione,Tuscany.
The owner,Simone, and his lovely mum made the three of us feel very welcome and greeted us with a basket of produce from their own garden plus a bottle of their home made wine from their own vineyard!. We were lucky to have the lovely pool all to ourselves during our stay,and made lots of use of it in the gorgeous sunshine. Beware of the mosquitoes here though and take plenty of repellent,they're active both night and day!
A car is very necessary to visit this area of Tuscany but do be aware the roads are very windy and narrow with poor surfaces and few road markings. The local drivers don't help either by driving too close for comfort in their desperate attempts to overtake you!
Both Pisa and Florence take around 40 minutes to reach from here by car,although there is a railway station quite near if you prefer travelling by train instead.
We chose to eat in most nights in the spacious kitchen/dining room, but there are several great restaurants nearby with reasonably priced menu's if you prefer dining out.
The only little detail that could have improved our stay would have been if we had received some sort of "information pack" normally found in holiday homes,recommending local places of interest to visit,plus restaurants etc. In place of the printed notice fastened to one of the kitchen cupboards,with rules about how to dispose of your recyclable rubbish etc.
Otherwise, we loved our stay in Tuscany and would certainly recommend "Casa Grimaldi" to anyone looking for a place of tranquility in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We certainly can't wait to come back again!!
