Our stay at Piombaia was part of our honeymoon, and it made our experience in Tuscany unforgettable. This is a cozy family owned property and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. But there were several other factors that made our stay here enjoyable. Although we did not spend much time in our room, it was quite spacious and clean, with a kitchenette and living room in addition to our bedroom. All the rooms including the bathroom had picturesque views of the Tuscan countryside. All that you would imagine you would see in Tuscany you could see from our room, with beautiful vineyards, farmhouses, and cypress trees dotting the landscape. We got a lovely tour and wine tasting at their main vineyard. We also sampled their organic olive oil and both their wines and olive oil were excellent. Piombaia is also located only a mile or two from Montalcino, and renting a car is probably the best way to get around, not only to visit Montalcino but other towns nearby such as Montepulciano and Pienza.
The staff is not present there all the time but they do provide a number if you need any service. We did not have a cell phone but it wasn't a problem for us.
We only spent two nights here but would have loved to spend more to be able to explore more of the surrounding area and spend more time relaxing at Piombaia. We traveled to other areas of Italy including Florence and Amalfi Coast in addition to Paris, but it is very hard to beat sitting in our room, sharing an excellent bottle of wine and tasty cheese while watching the sunset with someone you love. We will definitely stay here again if we return!
