Excellent location in a superb apartment - an absolute delight!
Typical Tuscan house in the very centre of old part of Monticiano. One bedroom on street level with great view over garden and countryside. On same level well equipped kitchen including oven. and a bathroom. One bedroom/lounge and 2nd bathroom on lower floor with double doors opening onto two level garden/patios. Very large outdoor space with ample sun-umbrellas, trees for shade. Side alley and gate from patio/garden leads to street - very handy for my wife's mobility scooter and my bike. Thank you Beatrice!
The owners of this property were lovely-friendly and helpful, and it was spotlessly clean. However, accuracy in the property details was lost in translation. We read that the house was on the "outskirts of Siena" ,but the village was a 45 minute drive up a windy mountain road from the city of Siena itself. ( The details probably meant the outskirts of the REGION of Siena?) We were also not given details of the layout of the house and the need to climb up steep stone stairs from the kitchen to get to the bedroom and so out into the garden. My health issues made this a challenge . Heat and mosquitos on top meant that we cut our stay short to find a hotel with air con and less vulnerability to insects in order to protect me from infection ( I have stage IV breast cancer). Our lovely hosts couldn't have done anything about the heat or the mosquitoes! But we think they should clarify the location of the house, the journey to the city of Siena and point out that there are steep stone steps to negotiate, as this would be a hazard for small children as well as those with mobility issues. We were very sad to have to leave several days early, especially when the host family were so friendly, but sadly this property did not work for us. Clearer property details would prevent this happening for other guests. Many thanks.
Great Tuscany Vacation
Beatrice and her husband are outstanding hosts. Their home is beautiful and situated in a small town no more than one hours drive from all of Tuscany’s best attractions. I recommend them highly for anyone looking for a great heart of Tuscany adventure.
Absolutely beautiful home in the picturesque Tuscany countryside. The home itself is well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Our hosts were kind and helpful. There's a lovely little bakery a 1 minute walk away, and a market a 3 min walk away. We visited a local restaurant, Albergo Ristorante Da Vestro, and had a excellent meal, which was a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Highly recommend!
Beatrice was a great host and Monticiano was a quaint little village in wine country. We were close enough to easily take day trips to sienna and vineyards.
Beautiful fully renovated apartment in the charming old town.
We had a wonderful time. The apartment is beautiful and Beatrice and her husband are wonderful people who were extremely helpful.
Monticiano occupies a strategic position, since only a few kilometers in different directions, you can reach beautiful and famous for their artistic beauty, the ancient traditions, the culinary specialties. A few kilometers from Monticiano, in the woods and crossed by the river Farma, there is the ancient Petriolo spa, famous for its waters since 1200. At about 60 km, along the Maremma coast are many beach resorts that perfectly adapted to the different needs of tourists. The beaches are the best place for lovers of holidays to the sea adventure.
