We had a great stay of 4 night at Piombaia in the first week of November. We based our choice on previous tripadvisor reviews which proved to be totally true. We were offered an apartment on the ground floor (had a name but I do not remember it) with a large living room/kitchen and a bedroom, simply furnished but very comfortable. It was already a little bit cold in the mornings, but the apartment was warm, and there was plenty of hot water in the shower (contrary to other alriturismi we stayed at during this trip there was no extra charge for heating). Several bottles of different varieties of Piombaia wine were on display in our room. Having tasted some we could not help buying their Brunello di Montalcino and Gatto Nero to take home (we were offered a slight discount as guests). Unfortunately, we had no time to use the swimming pool and jacuzzi, nor to attend the winery tour. We made day trips to Montalcino (very close), Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, even to Arezzo – a little bit too far, but we wanted to see it as well. Vittorio, the owner, was eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible, he even asked the restaurant to stay open longer on our arrival day so that we had something to eat that late. All in all, we had a great time at Piombaia and hope to back one day.
