Perfection in Paradise
This property exceeded the description in both quality and expected size as described on the website, and met our needs perfectly for a comfortable long stay in a hilltop village as a base for exploring southern Tuscany. The value offered for the rate paid is exceptional. The photos are 100% accurate. The bed was comfortable and the main floor bathroom was unusually spacious. Spotlessly-clean Monticchiello is lifted out of a fairy tale, and the views from the town's entrance gates of the Val d'Orcia evoke paradise. If guests find the town a bit too quiet, Pienza and Montepulciano are a short 20 minutes away through achingly beautiful scenery. Above all, Francesco is an exceptional host, the best we have ever encountered in our substantial travels. Warm, welcoming, always available to answer questions or to address any issues (and there were very few), he remains the best part of a stay that was wonderfully memorable in every way. We shall miss him and will always savour our month spent 'unplugged' in Tuscany.
Francesco was so accommodating and apartment was perfect in a perfect small village!! Would definetly stay there again! Thanks for a great vacation!
The property is perfectly located just inside the qate of Monticchiello and it's decor is pleasant.
Monticchiello is a wonder. The village terms with artistic creative energy not to mention the beauty of the impeccable restoration of the town itself. We spent 9 nights using Monticchiello as a base for exploring the Val d'Orcia region. Our time passed far too quickly, spent usually driving within a half hour trip from home base to explore a town on foot. We usually got lunch in late afternoon returning home to prepare dinner using the stellar array of Tuscan produce to create nice meals in the kitchen which boasts a full oven and 4 burner stovetop.
We also were fortunate to have dinner out at the tavern run by the Theatre Povere group. I forget it's name but will not soon forget the lively, happy atmosphere that set the tone for our visit on our arrival evening. We dined at Ristoraunte Daria which was barely a slow 1 minute walk away. We knew Daria to preside over an exceptional establishment and were not disappointed.
This is a great place to reside while exploring Val d'Orcia although it is a small quite village and might not appeal to those seeking a night life. If , however you seek time in a stunning medieval village with your own apartment in the midst of the local population, you would be hard pressed to beat this property.
Tuscany may be the most beautiful place on earth. The region is synonymous with art. From the architecture to the landscaping of the farms every turn of the road reveals another description defying vista. Then the art , both ancient and modern, fine or utilitarian, is everywhere. The cuisine is an education in simple yet complex tastes that celebrate local producers. Everyone was very helpful to us showing great patience for our almost non existent Italian. I will put a return to Tuscany high on my priority list.
Perfect villa with a wonderful host
The luxury villa in Montichiello was beautiful and Francesco was a very gracious and helpful host. This was our first time in Tuscany and Francesco assisted us in plannning each days adventures. The villa itself is immaculate and was perfect for 2 couples. Montichiello is a very tiny village and an excellent home base to explore all the sights of Tuscany and Florence.
Modern comfort in an old-world location
This two-level two-bedroom two-bath rental is located in the little (90 inhabitants) of Monticchiello. It is very well equipped, and comes with some amenities one does not expect from a VRBO listing:- A good and varied breakfast is served at the owner Francesco's B&B which is just up the street, daily maid visit and free laundry round out the service. Monticchiello is well located for exploring the Tuscan hillside villages, and Francesco is very helpful in suggesting local sights that are not on the beaten track.
Such a wonderful little town and excellent host
This was a great place to stop and spend a few days. The apartment is very comfortable and Francesco was really helpful with itineraries for what to see and where to go. Monticchiello is a beautiful little town and it seems like those that live there are proud of their town and happy to share it with visitors. We loved the apartment, the town and the countryside 💕😎
Francesco is also an artist and has some terrific Tuscan landscape works for sale at this gallery/workshop.
