Crocina - Piombaia

Reviewed December 22, 2011

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.

We were so pleased with Piombaia when we stumbled on it during our honeymoon. It is family run and the owners are so warm and cute. They will really go out of their way to make sure your trip is wonderful. Highly recommended.

We stayed six nights, and I wish we were still there. Located between Montalcino and San Antimo with views of the valley, vineyards, and olive groves. We bought food for breakfast in town and prepared it each morning in the kitchenette. Very private, excellent value, simple Tuscan charm. Can't go wrong.

Love the views, location and staff!
Room is basic but well maintained.
We, however, do not like the food at the Osteria, except the desserts which are spectacular.
Thank you, Vittorio and Susanna, for the hospitality!

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.
