“Stunning views - very comfortable stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

We had a fabulous stay at Le Macchie. The pool and grounds are wonderful - views absolutely incredible. The house itself is very comfortable with plenty of space and furnished to a high quality. I would love to go back one day.

My Wife and I have stayed twice at Le Macchie during the past 4 years; staying each time in the smaller studio unit (Moraiolo). The property is very quiet and secluded. It is surrounded by olive groves and beautiful vistas of Mt. Amiata and the surrounding Tuscan country-side. Despite the seclusion, the property is very close and central to a number of wonderful towns and villages, and is an excellent base for exploring southern Tuscany and northern Umbria. Note: It is impossible to stay there without a car.

The property is very well maintained and the facilities are all in good order. Gianmario (super friendly, but limited English) , the maintenance/handy-man is usually around a few days a week to take care of any problems.

I was lucky enough to attend a friend's wedding last summer and she definitely picked one of the most magical places she could. As if Tuscany isn't a treasure itself, this country farmhouse split into apartments is set out in the velvet greenery of the hills and just breathes relaxation into every limb. The views and grounds are absolutely breathtaking and nothing short of inspiring, and I found myself returning from that week nostalgic, with full notebooks and rolls of film. Romantic, yet suited for any occassion, this is a wonderful spot because it offers peace and privacy, but it's still easy to take trips into surrounding towns and cities. It's also special since it has a swimming pool and that can be rather rare, especially at the bargain rate my friend was able to rent for. A nice highlight was when we set up our own little olive oil tasting.....yummmm :) Who would think it could taste so good on BREAD? I mean I knew that, but the olive oil we experienced was something else entirely. Anyway, I'm hoping more friends have weddings and I can convince them to rent Le Macchie, I can't wait to go back!

Oh right, I should note it's NOT a hotel, rather a vacation rental. You can find a full description here: http://www.italiancollection.com/en/Le-macchie.html

Le Macchie is lovely and secluded with several accommodation options. A car is a must but the nearby villages are all worth several visits and provide good shopping and excellent dining options. Moraiolo was just for 2 and absolutely perfect.

We have visited Le Macchie 2 times. Once when we were a couple and again in 2007 as a family of 3 + grandparants.The first time we stayed in the small one bed, the second time in one of the 3 bedroom houses.

The farmhouses/accommodation have been beautifully restored by Andrea the owner. He has remained very true to local tradition and workmanship.

The setting is STUNNING. Middle of nowhere. Beautiful views. And yet within good driving distance are many of the most beautiful Tuscan villages - Pienza, Montepulciano and many others you would not normally venture to. The best of all is Montecielo. Its a tiny village with just one restaurant. But that restaurant is superb. Everyone is so friendly - especially when you tell then you are staying at Andrea's place.

Andrea puts together a local guide for you - vineyards - local produce - shops - bars - restaurants. And he has very good taste!

The pool is great (though not heated so you need to go in Summer really). The houses may not be the MOST child friendly for toddlers but they are perfectly ok - we managed fine with our 1 yr old.

All in all this is a real gem - 80 mins from Florence - 2 hrs from Rome and just one hour from Siena - Just don't tell too many people about it!!

Having longed to visit Tuscany for over 20 years, the dream finally came true this summer. The fact that we stayed at Le Macchie was no small part of that dream - in fact, it made our holiday perfect. The situation, the accommodation, the facilities were all far more than we had hoped for and I cannot imagine finding anywhere better to have spent our time. The wonderful grounds were immaculately tended and the apartments we stayed in were spotless and catered for our every need. The nearby towns of Pienza, Montepulciano and Montecchiello were fascinating and within easy reach. To see Tuscany as you have dreamed of it - stay at Le Macchie!

This is not a hotel - it is a "farm Stay" type property. Out of town but very peaceful. Plenty of outdoor space, good appointments.
