“A perfect holiday. Hope to return.”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

We visited Piombaia for 10 days in August as a family holiday. We had a fantastic time in every way. The farmhouse accomodation, although basic, had everything that we needed and anything that we required as an extra (such as a cot for our baby) was supplied.
The setting of Piombaia is beautiful. The views from every window are like looking out at a picture postcard scene of Tuscany. The swimmng pool is uncrowded and surrounded by lavendar bushes. The swimming pool is cleaned daily and topped up with fresh water.
The Rossi- Cantini family who run Piombaia were friendly and helpful. They came to chat and to check that we were happy, to recommend places to eat and to help us to make reservations. We did a cookery lesson with Cecilia which was great fun and she was able to cater for one of our party's special dietry requirements.
All in all, we had a relaxing holiday and would love to return to Piombaia if we ever get the chance.

Very attentive staff who were always willing to help us with whatever we needed. They were very nice and warm people, who really seemed to care about our holidays being good. If we had any trouble with internet or whatever, they were instantly responsive. They would make reservations for us at wine tastings, restaurants, etc, and they knew all of the good places to go. The rooms was spacious and the prices are extremely reasonable.

We were in Piombaia just 3 days, and it was great! Romms are very clean and nice, the location is very calm and pleasant. Stuff was really friendly and we felt like at home. We are very glad, that we stayed in Piombaia. Looking forward to the trip back to Montalcino.
Dear Piombabia team, thank you very much! We wish you a lot of success in future.

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!

We were a group of 16 people, 8 adults and 8 childern. Unfortunally, we stayed only for a week-end in Piombaia, but it could had lasted for weeks, as nice has the site been.

The agriturismo is really nice, cultivated and well-kept, located in the midlle of the region of Montalcino. The appartements are quite amply and well furnished. Just if you want to cook big menus on your own, the kitchen would be a little too small - but who wants to cook for his own if he could eat at the osteria of the agriturismo? The osteria was small, but also really nice and tipical.

I can also recommend the wines of Piombaia, the brunello is a great wine, not only for the taste, but also for the price. An the second wine "gatto nero" is really a good choice.

This family villa in the heart of Tuscany is the perfect place to stay while enjoying the experience of Tuscany. The accomodations, the family, the restaurant, the ambiance of Tuscany was far more than we anticipated while on holiday in Italy. I will most definitely stay again on my 3rd trip to Italy. Viva la Piombaia!

Lovely place perfect for making trips to wineries in Montalcino region and tasting Brunello or Rosso di Montalcino. Quiet place with very friendly service. The restaurant doesn't disturb guests and provides opportunity to enjoy a dinner with wine without driving to the city. We also like the wine Gato Nero.
