Agriturismo Barbi
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I stayed with my friend at VIlmo Barbi's for a couple of nights and I must admit that it was the best part of our trip to Italy. Everything was perfect. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was very modern and clean. Vilmo Barbi took good care of us. He was helpful and sociable. Unbelievebly nice experience.

We loved the large rooms, the surrounding fields, the friendly owner, and little Monticchiello was an absolute gem. After the whole day of sightseeing it was fantastic to sit outside, watch the glorious sunset and sip wine. Highly recommended.

Great place! Great facilities and very close to villages like Monticchiello, Montalcino and Pienza, and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the surroundings. The sr. Vilmo is very helpful and gives good tips of what to do in the region.

This is absolutely charming place. Go outside the house and you can see outstanding view on val d’Orcia. Pienza is just 7km away. Montepulciano, San Quirico d’Orcia and Montalcino several kms. Even the small Monticchiello is beautiful. Excellent base for excursions (car recommended).
Regarding people. Imagine a smiling guy welcoming you at the house – that’s our host Vilmo Barbi - very nice, friendly and helpful man. I admire his work and what he does for val d’Orcia landscape.
Apartment is comfortable, maybe few additional kitchen equipment would be useful (for example tea kettle – maybe Italians don’t know such) but generally it was OK.

The picturesque hills are breathtaking. Vilmo Barbi is a most welcoming host. I traveled here with three friends and we could not have been happier with the accommodations. The location is perfect for visiting the small towns in the area. This is a wonderful spot for a truly relaxing, memorable stop in Tuscany.

If you're looking for postcard Tuscan countryside, this is it! Best place we stayed in all of Italy. Vilmo was very accomodating and reachable, even when he was busy on the farm. Beautiful views from the farm and our apartment. Nearby Montichiello is lovely. Great location for a few days of leisurly exploring--close to Pienza and Montepulciano. Spoiled us for the rest of our trip. Also, ask Vilmo for great food recommendations.
