  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had a wonderful time. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The children had great fun running about the large yard.

Enjoyed Most:

Proximity to town. And, its beauty.

Enjoyed Least:

Kitchen was small, and removed from the living areas.

Surrounding Area:

We loved walking to town, shopping and eating out. We traveled to Siena, and several other small towns in the area.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Montalcino was a short walk.

Tips or Restaurants:

We really did not have spectacular meals. We often ate supper at the villa, as we had small children with early bedtimes and many of the restaurants were closed until 700 or 730. Grifa's pizza was probably our best meal out.

Directions:

We did use GPS.

Check In Out:

Monica, who did our check-in and check-out was very accommodating. We were later than anticipated arriving (serious navigation problems leaving Florence) and then we had a 7:30 am flight out of Florence on our departure day, so she came to check us out at 4:30 in the morning, with great grace.

Overall:

I love the town of Montalcino and I think it is the essence of Tuscany. This villa is in a great location with a short walk to all.

Enjoyed Most:

Lot's of room inside and out it is very clean. The bathrooms have all been upgraded since my last stay there. The grounds are beautiful.

Surrounding Area:

The town itself. The small park at the top of the hill. The Coop, the Fortress, the wonderful churches, the people in the town....I could go on and on, we met so many people. The restaurants are all great! The wine bars are a real treat.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Yes. A short walk to town center.

Directions:

Very good directions. Drove right to it.

Check In Out:

Monica is very efficient, and welcoming. English is a problem, but somehow we sorted it all out.

Overall:

It exceeded all expectations. Check-in, check-out, Monica was the best! The house was very clean and ready for us.

Monica was very attentive if we had any questions or needs. Her husband was a peach, too.

Enjoyed Most:

Everything. It was a family home. The close proximity to Montalcino was invaluable. We walked up to dinner every single night. The home was perfect, plenty of space and privacy for all. The yard was beautiful with lots of room to play soccer, catch and move around. Even got to eat apricots that were perfectly ripe and falling off the trees. The pool was shallow, but everyone loved it. It was an ideal location for visiting other cities, and sights in the vicinity. The kitchen was completely efficient. I just didn't get to use it enough as we always headed up the hill to dinner. The dishes and cutlery were top notch. The laundry facilities were perfect. The bedrooms all had good privacy and access. The bathrooms were all very bright, clean and spacious. The living room was a wonderful space in which 7 of us were completely comfortable watching World Cup Soccer. The dining room was great, but unused as we took advantage of Montalcino every single night.

Surrounding Area:

We loved being able to walk up to Montalcino in the mornings to get our papers, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the mostly traffic-free streets. The grandchildren loved playing soccer in the streets with all the other Italian children in the evenings. They also, after several tries, found their favorite gelato store. We loved our dinners up there. Osticcio was our favorite, but there was a pizzeria (two doors down from Osticcio) that put their TV outside that had fabulous pizza, very good food, great, friendly service. This is where we could keep an eye on the children while they played soccer and we continued to enjoy our wine and finish a more leisurely dinner.

We were able to see sights, Pienza, Siena, the Abbey to name a few in the mornings and be home in time for swims and relaxation before heading up the hill to dinner. It was a perfect location.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Montalcino....3-5 minute walk.

Tips or Restaurants:

Read number six for restaurant ideas.

Pack at a minimum as you can do laundry. Nothing is fancy.

Directions:

We found the house perfectly without a GPS.

Check In Out:

Monica is the best!!!!! Check in and check out were simple and efficient.

Overall:

Fantastic. The villa was nicely done with modern amenities while retaining it's old world charm. It was so picturesque, even better than I had hoped for.

Enjoyed Most:

The beautiful setting with great outside areas to stroll, read, nap or eat. State of the art appliances were an unexpected treat in the kitchen, along with cupboards well stocked for cooking and serving. Wonderful to be able to walk to town for all our needs and leave the car at the villa.

Enjoyed Least:

Our visit was during some beautiful Sept weather, so we kept the windows open and we had lots of street noise, barking dogs, and a rooster. All of that became part of our surroundings and experience, but it was not really a quiet setting.

Surrounding Area:

Beautiful scenery in every direction. We enjoyed wine tastings at Biondi-Santi and Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona di Bianchini. This is Brunello country!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Montalcino was within walking distance, which was a wonderful benefit. It allowed our group to come and go as they pleased since they could walk into the village.

Tips or Restaurants:

We arranged to have a chef prepare a meal at the villa on the Sunday after our arrival. This was probably our smartest planning. The chef couple was delightful, giving us pointers around the area, sharing their local produce and providing us with enough left-overs for days.

Stock up on toilet paper. This needs to be on the market item list for initial stocking of the villa. We had six ladies in the villa and we had to search out an open market on the Sunday following our arrival.

Directions:

We had lots of issues getting to the property and our 2 hour drive from Rome turned to 5. We did try to use a GPS but we had service issues, so that was nothing to do with the directions to the property. Once we were familiar with the village the directions were obvious, but they were not obvious on our initial entry to town. We took a wrong first turn and never recovered, probably drove around the village an hour. Unfortunately, this was a critical time when a little English from the keyholder or Italian from the guests us might have saved lots of frustration.

Map

This Tuscany villa rental is situated right on the edge of the medieval town of Montalcino, known primarily for its fine wine. Wine here is made from the brunello grape, aged for a minimum of 4 years, and has a rich, fruity, powerful taste. That is not Montalcino's only attraction, however, as it is also a characteristic little town, great for exploration and relaxation. Some of the sights include the Duomo of San Salvatore, the Piazza del Popolo with the Palazzo Communale, and the Church of San Francesco with frescoes by Vincenzo Tamagni. Of particular note are the 12th century Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, a beautiful Romanesque montastic church, and the 14th century fortress that dominates the valley. This location is also convenient for day trips to Siena, Florence, and the seaside. Florence: 110 km/68 ft2 Grosetto, seaside: 60 km/37 mi Siena: 40 km/25 mi Montalcino: 500 meters/1,640 ft2
