“Fabulous setting - perfect for a relaxing break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stayed here as a older family - 5 adults - and had a wonderful time. The apartment was spacious and well equipped for the price paid - and the bbq/seating areas gave us a beautiful view over the Tuscan countryside. The complex was quiet and peaceful, the size of the grounds meant that even families with younger children didn't negatively impact the overall sense of calm. Well situated for excursions to Florence and Pisa and smaller villages - we also found a wonderful family vineyard (Agrisole) nearby who put on a tasting for us - everything about this accomodation is highly recommended!

Everything at La Valle is fantastic! We loved the apartment, the pool, the tennis court, the view, the silence, the wine... This is a place we will recommend if you like a peaceful and quiet place but still close to major sights as Firenze, Siena and lovely medieval towns.

3 friends stayed at La Valle in early June. The Villas are gorgeous as is the property around. The view is stunning. The staff are helpful and friendly and it doesn't hurt that the wine they make and sell on site is fabulous. We would recommend La Valle to anyone travelling to Tuscany.
We also had the cook prepare a special meal at our villa for us and it was fantastic!!

The accommodation is great, beautiful, with all comforts. We got every day fresh vegetables, fruits. You can find here also good wine and delicious olive oil. The food is unexceptionable.
Montaione is a very lovely little village, close to all attraction and tourist destinations (like Firenze, Lucca, Siena etc)
Highly reccomended.

Room Tip: We travelled as two couples, and we stayed in House "Leonardo da Vinci". It was a perfect...

We have been staying at La Valle and Fignano (both owned by the same family) since many years. It was always a relaxing time in a very good organized Agriturismo in the Tuscany/Italy for an affordable price. The rooms you find clean when you arrive and a bottle of their own wine (Mandragola) is offered for free and waiting on the table in the apartment.

The apartments are fully furnished with dishwasher and all the vessels you need for cooking and eating. If you do not want to prepare your meal by yourself you can go to various Tuscan restaurants in Montaione as well as in some villages around. A washing machine is offered in a separate room for all guests for free.

The pool is prepared every day and you can use the tennis court (also for free).

Around the comfortable apartments in La Valle (6 apartments in 4 houses for 2 to 6 persons) you find fruit and vegetables (cherries, plums, peaches, figs and grapes as well as tomatoes, green salad, cucumber, eggplants etc.) which you can pluck for your own use.

For bigger groups there are also available the newer apartments at Fignano for 2 up to 10 people.

We will come again and share the atmosphere of the rural life and the possibility to visit the cultural sites of Tuscan cities and villages (Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena and the Chianti area are all in a distance of around 50 to 60 km, San Gimignano and Volterra about 20 to 30 km). By the way: the nearest airports are Pisa and Florence.

Thank you very much Simone, Roberto and Davide for the good times we had at your well run apartments.

Hello Everyone,
This was our first trip to the Mediterranean and for our 25 anniversary with 4 other couples and very close friends who were also celebrating their 25th.
We arrived in Rome and made our way to Montaione via express train where we spent 5 day before embarking upon the next portion of our vacation by taking a cruise from Rome to experience as much of the Mediterranean as possible. Although the second part of our vacation was fantastic I enjoyed our Tuscany stay in Montaione the best.

The first portion of our vacation was spent with one of the four couples who arrived earlier and arranged our stay in this beautiful location of Tuscany (La Valle Villa). Everything in the villa was wonderful from the rooms that overlooked the country side and the vineyard to the leisurely morning walk to the grocery store that was only 15 min away by foot to pick up breakfast that we made ourselves. The rooms were spacious and well maintained, the grounds were well kept and the owners were available should you require assistance after hour. We did not utilize their availability without good reason. The assistance we required revolved around running out of wine one evening because we did not plan ahead we did not repeat that mistake for the remainder of our stay. While on the subject of wine the Villa produces a beautiful full bodied Red wine a product from grapes grown on their property along with a light Chianti at a reasonable price. I am no wine connoisseur but I know what I like and the wine produced at this villa rivals any wine I have purchased anywhere on all my travels. We were so impressed by the lovely bouquet and full bodied flavour of the wine that I inquired into the cost of having some shipped to Canada upon our return. Unfortunately, with the import duties and the shipping cost although a fantastic wine I had to concede the fact that the cost outweighed my desire to experience the wine once again. However, I will return to the LA Valle Villa and experience all I have mentioned in the very near future.

Needless to say we had a wonderful time in Tuscany and a great time experiencing all the Mediterranean had to offer but our time at the LA Valle Villa in Tuscany was one that I wish you all could experience. Our time at the villa was so memorable that I am in the midst of arranging another trip to Tuscany and spending all our time experiencing all this region has to offer including cooking classes, additional wine tours and taking a bike tour of the hill side. I would recommend the La Valle Villa’s as a launching point to any one or group of individuals that might want to experience all Tuscany has to offer. Montaione is central enough that you can plan a day out and see all there is to see on your specific excursion and still have plenty of time to get home for dinner and drinks. I almost forgot for those that would like to limit the expense associated with eating out every evening you can prepare your own meal from locally available good easily purchase at the grocery store. However, you are also close enough to town that a 10 min drive down the street you can find a local restaurant that will fill your appetite to bursting should you so wish. This was my first trip to Tuscany and the Mediterranean but definitely not my last.

Cheers,

Ps My experience in Tuscany cannot be overstated as wonderful but the rating scale did not go high enough to truly let you know how much I enjoyed my stay in Montaione. There should have been an excellent + rating.

Room Tip: Due to the location of the Villa you will require a vehicle to take full advantage of the hill side...

Apartments La ValleIn the heart of Tuscany, less than 1 km far from the centre of the small medieval village of Montaione, are spread the holiday cottages of La Valle.The green meadows, the red terracotta-tiled floors and the coloured flowers surround the six houses of this establishment.
