Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved Monticchiello and staying there for three nights. The apartment is just what we were looking for in a Tuscan experience. ...timbered ceilings, stone walls, tile floors, a patio looking over an orchard, all in a delightful little village of less than 200 people. We were treated so well by the locals, had a lovely dinner at the Porto, and made a couple of pici dinners at 'home'. The local wine is wonderful! Thank you, Barbara!

Magical Place in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this place was a most lovely experience. The views of the Val d'Orcia from Montichiello are spectacular, while the village itself is charming, quiet, and mostly maintained in its medieval setting. We had wonderful meals at the restaurants in town (especially La Porta and La Cantina de La Porta) and enjoyed the people and atmosphere of the village. The apartment, lovingly decorated with many details that maintain the charm of a different time, seems spacious because of its private terrace which provides a beautiful spot for breakfast, reading, and evening meals. During our stay there was a local village festival going on where one could see the town's people in the production of a play and sample the cuisine prepared by the locals.

Our host Barbara was a very responsive and gracious, ready to provide us with any information needed. Also the people at the close by restaurant La Porta were very nice when we arrived in a rainstorm trying to get our bearings. We hope to return very soon, maybe even next year because we loved it.

très belle adresse pour les amoureux de la Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est situé dans le charmant village médiéval de Montichiello, sur le haut d'une colline d'où l’on peut admirer les paysages exceptionnels du Val d'Orcia. Le village est piétonnier, au calme et dans la sérénité, il dispose de trois restaurants de qualité ; nous avons aimé la cuisine traditionnelle et l’ambiance de la Porta.

C'est un excellent point de départ pour des randonnées à la découverte de la Toscane mais aussi de l'Ombrie voisine.

Le gîte est très agréable, confortable, avec une décoration romantique ; il comporte une terrasse donnant sur une oliveraie ; le soir c’est une merveille d’assister au coucher de soleil sur Pienza assise sur le haut de la colline d’en face.

Barbara est d’une grande gentillesse, nous la remercions pour son accueil.

Nous recommandons ce gîte pour les amoureux de la Toscane

Fabulous place to stay. It's cosy, and feels like home. Barbara is the perfect hostess and is so kind and helpful.

It's a lovely region to be based in for visiting hill towns, and the town of Monticchiello is picturesque and very welcoming.

The local La Porta restaurant served up the best meal of our entire trip to Italy.

And the local information centre is great for wifi and local info.

A lovely home in a most beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

The hamlet of Montichiello is set on hills with stunning views over the surrounding valleys. It's hard to explain quite how beautiful it is here. It's not just Tuscany, this small area around Montepulciano and Pienza is something else and the views from Montichiello in particular are amazing, especially as sunset. The apartment is very comfortable and cool in the hot weather. You can spend you days visiting vineyards and farms, but just driving around the area is unforgettable. I would recommend the restaurant La Porta in Montichiello and there are many others in the surrounding towns. It's an easy day trip to Florence or Siena, but you needn't bother? It's so lovely here. Barbara was a very kind and accommodating host.

Date of Stay: 04/24/11 Review Submitted: 04/23/12

I first settled into Le Maribelle 2 in 2007 and I am looking forward to my fourth stay later this spring. I don't think you can ever fully explain what brings you back year after year but I will try. The first time I met Barbara, the owner, she and I ended up sitting in the garden and talking for an hour. One trip I arrived late and couldn't pick up my rental car. Without my asking, Barbara met my train in Chiusi, drove me to Monticchiello, and then back to Chuisi the next day to get a car. I could go on and on. The house is exactly what I want when I travel. It is quiet, cozy,and completely livable.The kitchen is perfect, the bed comfortable and the view unbelievably beautiful. I can sit for hours on the terrace. But if I want to go out and eat I can walk a block down the street to La Porta and have some of the best food and ambience I've found anywhere. Or around the corner to the Moranda's. Or down the street to La Cantina....amazing in a town of 100 people. Sorry Barbara, but I hope you are never totally booked because I want to come back again and again...sue
