Recent Monticchiello reviews

  • Loved our stay!

    "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!"

  • Beautiful views into the valley with surrounding olive treees

    "Genny and Paolo are the perfect hosts, They are genuinely lovely people. Genny can speak limited english and Paolo none but we still managed to communicate. Upon arrival we were greeted with a bottle of local red vino and glasses. Genny presented a folder full of information and a discount voucher for the local mineral pools which we visited for a couple of hours. The apartment is spacious and clean. The kitchen has a large range amenities and a large fridge. Paolo fired up the BBQ for us and we cooked a lovely piece of steak which Tuscany is famous for. Paulo also gave us some fresh eggs for breakfast. This is a lovely place to relax but you need a car to get here and to drive around to local towns. I would recommend this stay to anyone whose wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Tuscany."

  • A charming home in a charming village

    "The charming Annavittoria home is in a typical small Tuscan hilltop, walled fortress town. The pictures don't do it justice, it is much roomier and more comfortable than it may appear. Olive trees in the back yard and an orchard next door provide increased privacy The immaculate house was well furnished and the kitchen has pretty much everything you needed. A minor exception (well, major to us) was the lack of an espresso / coffee machine we knew how to use. There was an aluminum, stove top espresso maker which we just couldn't get the hang of. A small but daily frustration. The washing machine has detergent available, the wood burning stove has wood stacked outside. The village of Montechiello is gorgeous, authentic, ancient and very very small. It's wonderful to wander around and explore the narrow winding streets. There are three good to excellent restaurants and a cafe. The cafe is sometimes open in the morning, at no particular time (usually) and also serves lunch. There are several small retail shops selling art or clothing. The museum in town is very interesting and is the only place I know of to get a soda or snack. The town is about a two hour drive from Florence. While there may be another way to get there, you'll need a car to explore the region. Driving and parking in the town is not allowed for tourists (as in most of the ancient cities in the area) so you'll park in an unpaved lot and walk uphill about 2-4 blocks to the town and your house. There are numerous walled medieval Tuscan villages scattered around within easy driving distance. A couple are 10-15 minutes away. There's no need to describe all the terrific towns, shopping, restaurants and spas in the vicinity, Giuseppe, the outstanding young managers of the Annavittoria house, will give you plenty of information, including detailed texts as well as face-to-face orientations. No need for guide books (always out of date), mention Giuseppe's name and you become almost a local in many places. As an example, the best meal we had in Italy was at a restaurant (five tables) in a tiny village we probably wouldn't have visited. Don't miss Podere Il Casale, a working farm three miles down a dirt road. They offer lunch, dinner and cooking classes as well as a tour of the farm. We would definitely recommend this to a friend."

  • “Forget Pienza, this is the place to stay”

    "We had 5 people, two adults, and three kids. Consequently, we did not stay in the B&B but in a separate unit nearer to the front gate of the town which was a two bedroom loft. That said, we had breakfast at the B&B. The apartment we stayed in was terrific. Clean, roomy well decorated. We could not ask for more. As others have said the town itself is amazing. Also, has a wonderful restaurant right at the front gate with a stunning view of the valley below. If your goal is to stay in the Pienza area and explore a bit, this is the place to stay, you will be glad you did."
