“11 out of 10”
Reviewed October 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The website description and beautiful pictures don't begin to describe how peaceful and beautiful this property (and the region in general) is! I pinched myself when I arrived on the grounds. Huge and private apartment (we had the Cantina) with a dedicated patio, fully equipped kitchen, living room and modern bathroom (large bathtub was great for soaking in after a day long hike). Fernando was an amazing host, from the time we arrived to the morning of our departure. We appreciated his suggested itineraries (for day trips) and followed many of his recommendations in terms of local restaurants and shopping. The infinity pool (while a bit chilly given that it was September) added to the visual experience. The complementary wine, olive oil and honey was a nice touch! We partook of all of it! Our experience at I Moraioli was definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy. Thank you!

“Fantastic Scenary”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

It took a while to find, largely due to a dodgy Sat Nav and some dark roads. However, this property is really worth navigating the Italian tracks for.

The views from the property are breath-taking. We really wanted to maximise our time in Tuscany, so had planned lots of day trips - Montebenichi is really well placed for this, as it is so central to many of the go sees that should be on your Tuscan itinerary.

That said, we even cancelled a couple of these days trips just so that we could enjoy the property. My recommendation would be that if you do this, make sure you get the provisions in before because we kept on missing the Italian opening hours of the shops that take a bit of a drive to get to. And if you then realise you don't actually want to cook, there is L'Orchaia in Montebenichi which is a small, family run restaurant cooking up tasty Tuscan delights.

With it's aircon and open fireplace, the property accommodates for the warm sun and cool evenings we experienced at the end of September. It has a large, covered, private patio area which meant we could dine al fresco and enjoy the scenery. I really could not recommend this enough.

“Quiet, charming little villa in the tuscan hills with comfort.”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed one week and had a nice experience. Mr Matti is a very charming owner ,who keeps his property very well undertained.
You have the comfort of airco, television,fast wifi, a swimmimg pool,BBQ, pizza oven, large places on the terrace in a quiet and beautiful setting.
At our arrival we received a bottle of olive oil and honey, he produced, as well as two bottles of red wine and a lot of information about the facilities in the region.
This agriturismo holiday home is also suitable for a family reunion holiday , devided over the 4 different apartments ( little houses) around the swimming pool.
You should not hesitate to rent this property !!!!

“Fantastico”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We returned to our "little piece of heaven", one year later. Fernando and his team have maintained the very high standards, and we were delighted to settle into our "Cantina" villa.
We were greeted by Fernando, in his usual cheery and helpful manner, and nothing was too much trouble for him. The gardens were immaculately maintained, and the infinity pool a welcome pleasure as temperatures soared. On arrival the temperature was around 24C, each day the heat increased, we left 10 days later and it was 37.5C, the pool being 25.5c. It made our holiday even better than the year before. We will be returning again. We can also
recommend the local restaurant in the village, very good food, welcoming staff.

“Tuscan Retreat”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We are travelling a bit out of season but that means we have the place to ourselves. Although the infinity pool is not yet open (still a bit cool) the evening fires in the fireplace have been a treat at the end of each day of touring. Fernando is attentive to all requests and inquiries. The kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation after shopping in the local markets. Our resident teenager states " inviting place with great internet reception". The sunsets are fabulous!

“Everyone must come here”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

First things first, driving on Italian roads is an experience, however we did arrive safely! We arrived about 10pm and were welcomed by Fernando Matti. What a genuine and wonderful fellow he is. He really has created something special and you can tell it is his life’s work and passion when you speak to him. We parked up and lugged our bags to the entrance of our farmhouse. The photos do not do it justice! He had lit a large fire with candles on the dining table and placed a bottle of wine with a board of cheeses and meats to dig into, to save us from driving anymore that day (I specially requested this by the way and he exceeded my expectations! even charging exactly what it cost!) and a great surprise for my girlfriend. There were also two kittens at the property which made my Girlfriends stay perfect! The property is perfect. Cosy and traditional but modern where modern comforts are required. Throughout our stay Fernando dropped off extra wood for the fire when required and chatted to me in the mornings, but only when I approached him, a true Gentleman and host. Literally the perfect holiday, we will be coming back in the summer to make full use the wonderful pool! I would recommend this place to everyone. It truly is very special.

This was an absolutely perfect rental! The restored apartment was lovely. It was clean, comfortable, lovely location and the owner has thought about every detail to make your stay perfect. He provided written info in English for us about the area, use of the appliances and tv in the apartment, best spots to visit and best way to get there, even best local restaurants. We had a lovely bottle of local wine, and olive oil and honey that were produced by the owner as house warming gifts on arrival. The property is spectacular.
