Why Owner chose Magliano in Toscana
All the charm of Tuscany in one place: beaches, countryside, towns of art, history, culture and a superb landscape. Surrounded by nature but with all the advantages of a village, the large, comfortable and beautiful apartment is totally immersed in the old Tuscany atmosphere and traditions.

This is a very tiny village with no shopping for extras; however, it does have a wonderful bakery, a few restaurants, an ATM, and a small grocery store. There is a wonderful restaurant owned by a wonderful older couple that is well worth the visit. The house itself is great. If we come back to this area, we would definitely stay here again. The homeowner even has toys for small children. I really can't say enough good things about the house, the facilities, etc. It is a very peaceful place to stay and there is privacy for everyone. We really loved it. The only thing that I would say that is possibly negative goes to me - really read the guide book that the owner has prepared. I read the guidebook, but I really only scanned it for the information that I was interested in. The hot water heater went out on our last night there and if I had truly read the information, I could have fixed it within 5 minutes, instead of 15 minutes. So, the problem was clearly with me - so my advise is read! Finally, the owner is very responsive and is just a kind person. I think you will enjoy doing business with her and will enjoy your stay here.
A really beautiful house in a lovely Tuscan village. The house has everything you need and the views from the roof terrace are simply stunning. Montiano is also a great base for touring southern Tuscany where there is loads to see and gorgeous beaches only a few kilometers away. However, the highlight every day was knowing we were going back to that roof terrace with those views, sharing some wine and watching the swallows zoom around the rooftops. Also, Anna Maria is a fantastic host. So helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us some great tips about where to go and what to see. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. If you are looking for somewhere special to stay in the area and you are lucky enough to find this house free, book it. You wont be disappointed!
Charming and Authentic
We had a wonderful one-week stay in Montiano. The apartment was large (over three floors), charming, romantic and authentic. It felt like walking into the past, while the apartment was still modern and well-equipped. The roof terrace was a wonderful place for both breakfast and a glass of wine in the evening. The apartment was the perfect place if you look for a stay in a peaceful medieval Tuscan village "at the top of the hill". The owner, Manitta, was friendly and helpful.
Perfect accommodation for excellent holiday
Our big 3 generation family with grandparents and 5 children ranged 5 - 17 spent unforgettable 2 weeks at this apartment. We all were happy in Montiano and enjoyed holidays to full. Brilliant location gives possibility to visit Florence, Siena, Rome, Pisa, and many other wonderful places. Sea is seen from the window. The views are breathtaking. Local people are very friendly and ready to help. There are playgrounds and a football field. We felt safe and welcome in this wonderful place.
The apartment is spacious and really authentic. All the modern conveniences and facilities are available. Wi-Fi is available at the Cafe- Bar nearby, where stuff is very helpful and friendly.
The owner was informative, respectful, was there when required and knowledgeable of the area.
Wish you to enjoy your holidays as we did!
Superbe maison et superbe...
Superbe maison et superbe localité, loin des grands itinéraires touristiques, je la conseille vivement à toute personne souhaitant vivre la vie paisible d'un petit village médiéval de Toscane tout en étant à 10 minutes d’une des côtes les plus belles d’Italie. Très bien placé pour visiter le sud de la Toscane (on a aussi visité Rome qui n’est qu’à 1h40 de voiture), idéal pour sillonner les merveilleux environs et pour profiter à la fois de la beauté des plages, l’appartement est très joliment décoré, parfaitement équipé et jouit d’un panorama magnifique sur la mer et la campagne. Non seulement il est conforme à la description mais les photos ne peuvent rendre la luminosité et la dimension des espaces (chaque chambre avec sa salle de bain est bien indépendante des autres), le charme des anciennnes structures et le plaisir du relax et des dîners sur les deux ravissantes terrasses. Je conseille cette location à tous ceux qui sont comme moi amoureux de la Toscane!

"We were completely satisfied in every regard. This property is wonderful, the location is great and the owner was very helpful. The property has been newly restored to a very high standard: it is very tastefully furnished and has all the modern conveniences and amenities. The description provided is entirely accurate. We made trips to Rome, Florence and Siena, but mostly we just relaxed in the wonderful surroundings."
The nearest beaches are just 12km. away, reachable in a comfortable 10 minutes traffic free drive through rural scenery. It's the renowned Argentario Coast of Maremma, the southern area of Tuscany, with its fine sand beaches and rocky bays, its fortressed village ports (Talamone, Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole) where you can rent a boat, do your shopping in high class boutiques, taste the local products in 'trattorias' and wine bars, enjoy the Italian style.
The fabulous Natural Park of Maremma with its long white sand beaches, cliffs and wildlife is just 14 km. away and nearby are also the Natural Park of Feniglia and the Orbetello Lagoon.
From Talamone (15km. from our house) you can also go by ferry to the islands Elba, Giglio, Giannutri, Montecristo.
The closeness to the sea has made Montiano particularly attractive from spring to autumn while in late autumn and winter it remains a wonderful place for combining cultural experiences with the charm of the Tuscan way of life.
It is the ideal strategic home base for fascinating day trips: half way between Rome (South) and Florence (North), both reachable in 2 hour drive or by train (the station is just 15km. away) it is close to Siena, Pisa, and all the other enchanting sites of Tuscany.
In the vicinity of Montiano there are important archeological sites to discover (Roselle, Vetulonia, Tarquinia, etc.), enchanting historic centres to visit (Montalcino, Massa Marittima, Sovana, Manciano, Pitigliano, Orvieto, etc.) and, of course, Wine Trails to taste the excellent wines of the area.
In less than 30 mins you can reach the world-famous Saturnia hot thermal waterfalls and Spa open year long and 3 of the best 18-hole golf courses in Italy.
