“Nice Location and Good Food”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We stayed in this agriturismo in July 2011 (3 couples) and really enjoyed it. The building is situated on top of a hill with fantastic views of the surroundings. It is very near to the autostrada (motorway) FIPILI which makes it very convenient to travel around but at the same time it is far enough to be in a very tranquil area. The pool is very big and the surrounding grounds very well kept. Food at the restaurant is extremely (especially the pasta) good and value for money.

However i won't be giving this place 5* due to the lack of Air Conditioning in the rooms. In honesty we were told beforehand that the rooms did not have AC but i never would have thought that not even a fan! not even when we asked for one :( Some nights were so hot that we could not sleep, there wasn't even a breeze in the room. We were told that it is only a couple of days a year that it was hot, could be ! so we were so unlucky to be there in the hottest days in 2011. If i were the owner i would keep a couple of fans handy in case guests ask for one.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have big windows so make sure to ask for a room with big windows especially since ther...

I thank you so much for your kind feeback and I am sorry about the hot considitions you found, as informed there were some of the hottest nights of the year because generally it is always fresh here, being on a top of a hill.
We do not have air conditioning and we do not want to put it, being not properly eco-friendly and to differentiate the policy of an Agriturismo Vs hotels.......it is different, more rural and more natural, that's it....but we have now some fans...
Thank you again and hope to see you soon.

Kind Regards

Montalto must be one of the most beautiful places to stay in Tuscany. The food served in the ground floor of the large main house was excellent and the staff is very friendly.

We had three nights at Montalto and we loved it. The views were fantastic as was the general surrounds, the pool, the staff and the food. It was a great base to visit Pisa and Florence from. We ate in the restaurant two nights and really loved it. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Amazingly good value.

On a recent anniversary trip to Tuscany, my wife and I found the perfect farmhouse to use as the base for our daily excursions, Agriturismo Montalto! It's centrally located between Florence and Pisa, just south of Luca. These are all must-visit locations on any Tuscan adventure. We even spent some time exploring the mediaeval village of San Miniato.

The hotel and restaurant is located in the countryside with beautiful views, very comfortable rooms, and best of all... fantastic food and vino! You MUST experience the truffles! The owners are wonderful people; friendly and so helpful. I give it 5 STARS. We are already planning our return to Montalto next year!

A perfect hotel if you are looking for relaxing time in Tuscany between two cultural cities, Pisa and Firenze. Fantastic kitchen with good wines from a winemaker in the house.
"Private" swimming pool when looking for a more romantic time with your partner. Close to San Miniato and Vinci. Historical places of where the genius, Leonardo da Vinci was born and maybe gave him the brilliant thoughts!!??
