This was our second visit to Mensanello having stayed for a week in 2006. We booked again because we had a great time in 2006 and we were not disappointed. Carla was at the gate to greet us again (her sense of timing is uncanny) and she provided the same exceptional service. Mensanello has a unique charm and provides an exceptional Tuscan farm experience.
We shared a three bedroom apartment with another couple providing a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The staff were always welcoming and friendly and some great dinners were had in the restaurant with great friends. Mensanello coped very well with our group of 10. While the experience was great I suggest the owners pay more attention to detail such as providing electric kettles, toasters and fans. We had unseasonably hot weather and while the beautiful old stone buildings are usually very pleasant they did not cope with 40+ temperatures ... a ceiling or pedestal fan would have been great. If the little things mentioned had been provided I would have Mensanello as excellent. Again Carla is fantastic and her charm really enhances your stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We rent apartments and bedrooms in an old Tuscan farm, half way between Siena and Florence, few miles drive from Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Volterra and Chianti area. We are located on the top of a hill, in a very quiet spot that dominates a green valley. Here you can enjoy the country with its beautiful landscapes, where you can still find pheasants, hares, foxes and partridges and you can see fireflies in the dark or hear crickets and cicadae singing. We grow grapes, olive-trees, corn and sunflowers, so that the 300 hectares of the estate end up by forming a natural and coloured painting. You can taste and buy Extra-Virgin Olive Oil produced in our own oil-mill , our wine and beer. You can have breakfast and dinner and we have a nice pool available for our guests. ... more less
