The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and charmingly furnished with Tuscan antiques and lovely art. The location is, as expected, hard to find the first time but wonderfully sited for exploring the area yet close enough for delicious dinners in Montefollonico and Montepulciano. Only two drawbacks to mention. The swallows are messy and prevent any use of the outside table at all. And there was only WiFi in the big bedroom. However, we would highly recommend staying here.
Great location and unit
The property has an excellent location and incredible views. The biggest problem is the nesting of birds and droppings that limit the use of the outdoor space. It would be nice to be able to enjoy the outside area and enjoy the view....the bird dropping make this impossible near the house and there is no outdoor dining/seating in other areas. The garden is not maintained like other VRBO properties that we have visited. The Owner is very nice and responsive.
I know that swallows are a problem. A problem that did not exist a few years ago. Every year I try a different system to prevent them from entering the porch, but I realize that I still haven't found the right solution. This winter we will try to find another solution. As for the maintenance of the garden, you are right, I will tell the administrator of the condominium. Thanks to Don for these clarifications. They are always a help to improve.
The tranquility of the countryside with close proximity to Montepulciano and Montefellonico
Our family fell in love with this home away rental. It is tucked away among the Contucci vineyards between Montepulciano and Montefellonico. You really have the best of both worlds with this location. We enjoyed the Tuscan countryside, the grazing sheep, the pool, as well as the nearby hill towns. A perfect place to stay. We are a family of 4 with two younger children who loved this home. We look forward to returning.
Thank you for describing so well and appreciated the feeling that this house offers: living far from the world but at the same time close to such beautiful places in Tuscany. I hope you can come back next year.
The property was in an outstanding location.
To improve the experience, these are some of the negative aspects:
The access road was very poorly maintained and some car hirer firms will not guarantee their cars on untarmac roads.
No where to sit and enjoy an outside meal, the verandah was littered with bird's droppings!
The pool was a good size but again was dirty and could do with the walls scrubbed clean.
If a landlord is intending to let their property, they should remove all personal effects.
Apart from the constructive critism, the location and the property was fantastic.
Unbelievable Views and Apartment!
This property is all that's advertised and more. The first time up the driveway is an attention-getter but then it's easy and takes you on the hillside for the incredible valley views, as well as those of Montepulciano and Piensa. What you don't see in the photos or the description is the unbelievable caring of both Veronica, the caretaker and the lovely owner, Anna. We had credit card/wallet glitches and they were not only flexible with us but as distressed as we were. They were both only a phone all away and we now have new dear friends, whom we hope to see again. The apartment amenities, furnishings, location and as I said, views are all impeccable and we so enjoyed our two weeks there. As another Reviewer said, you certainly do need a car to get to the many nearby towns and for days trips further afield. There is ample parking at the house. This is probably the most beautiful area in Nothern Italy and we strongly encourage readers to see it from this lovely apartment.
Under The Tuscan Sun
We were two couples travelling through Italy & were lucky enough to find this fabulous farmhouse to stay in. It is beautiful! The beds are comfortable. The bedding and towels seemed of good quality. The house is clean. There are two separate bedrooms. There is one small bathroom with a shower & one large bathroom with a tub. The wifi works well. The fireplace was nice to have in the evenings when it got cold outside. The kitchen is well stocked. There are two small towns very close by (a few minutes drive) with great restaurants. You would definitely need a car to stay here. The views of the Tuscan countryside are incredible! This was exactly what we imagined (and hoped) our experience in Tuscany would be! Thank you so much, Anna for allowing us to stay in your wonderful house. We just wished that we could have stayed longer.
I am very happy that the apartment was exactly what we were looking for. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. The feeling was that of living just in the Tuscan countryside. Thanks for having taken the time to write this review. I hope that, one day or another, you may return to Piandolmo, Anna
An apartment in an old house, a few kilometers from Montepulciano: An ideal base to discover the Val d'Orcia and Val di Chiana, over Siena and Florence.
Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, La Foce, Monticchiello, Castiglione d'Orcia, Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia, Lucignano d'Asso are just a few kilometers. But it should also move away a bit 'to achieve
the Abbey of San Galgano and Monteriggioni, the Abbey of St. Antimo near Montalcino and San Gimignano. Many spas in the surrounding area and restaurants with typical local cuisine. At home you will find a list where the best restaurants are reported.
