"We spent a wonderful week at Erbolino. The property provided spectacular views and we will have wonderful memories of sitting on the patio, sipping wine, listening to the birds and soaking in the sunsets. The property is conveniently located on one of the local trekking trails which easily connected to several others. Erbolino is also on the L'Eroica bicycle route, which provided us a great way to explore the surrounding area. Gaiole is the perfect size town, big enough to have the amenities, including some wonderful restaurants, but small enough so you did not feel crowded with tourists.
Enough cannot be said for Anne Marie and Ricardo, our wonderful hosts. They were both very attentive to our needs and provided assistance and answers to our questions whenever it was needed.
5 stars and two thumbs up for Erbolino!"

"Celebrating a special birthday with friends in Tuscany, 13 of us feel so fortunate to have stayed at this amazing villa. The location is perfect for day trips to almost anywhere in Tuscany (a car is a must at this location). The drive in is a little rustic, however adds to the charm of the property. We all looked forward to coming 'home' at the end of a day of sightseeing, relaxing on the terrace or by the pool and sharing the days events with friends and other guests. Or if we needed a little quiet, there are various sitting areas on the property to take in a variety of views. Hosts Simon & Verity (their children and pets) couldn't be more delightful and made our stay truly special. They are always ready to offer suggestions, recommendations or help on visiting the area. The villa is a perfect spot for a large group, or as a bed and breakfast guest. Rooms are spacious and bright. Views are outstanding, and amenities exceed expectations. A weekly meal prepared by Verity was outstanding and great fun. The cooking class with Verity was a highlight for 3 of us as she shared her Tuscan recipes and skill. Thanks Simon and Verity.....We can't wait to return!"

"We stayed in the Villa Banditello this past July, and it was the perfect base from which to explore the neighbouring hill towns of Montepulciano, Montefollonico, Pienza, Siena, etc. The villa is 5 minutes outside of Montefollonico (great restaurant here called 13 Gobbi, where the owner/chef makes home made fettuccini in a hollowed out peccorino cheese rind, scraping the melted cheese down into the pasta .. yum!). It is situated in its own vineyards and olive groves, and is beautifully appointed, right down to a wood oven (in addition to the regular one). The kitchen was very well equipped, the washing machine worked perfectly, bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, bright and clean, and the views . . . well they were pretty much "storybook"! Michele personally spoke to us on the phone as we arrived, to be sure that we had all we needed. The housekeeper was there to greet us, and showed us everthing we needed to know. There is lots of room for parking. Furnishings, books and art are plentiful and tasteful. It really is a home away from home. There was even a bottle of the vineyard's own red wine waiting for us on arrival. Thank you Michele and Cristina! We would like to return this summer again in July! We will contact you!"
