#2 of 14 Speciality lodging in Monticchiello
L'Olmo is a small hotel de Charme in the heart of Val d'Orcia. An ancient farmhouse from XVII century, placed on the top of a gentle hill overlooking one of the most beautiful Tuscany valley. L'Olmo has been renovated in its interior and exterior designs, furniture, wall colours, hydro systems, air-conditioning and strong Wi-Fi. Surrounded by a green garden rich of plants as roses, geraniums, olive and cypress trees, L'Olmo offers a heated pool (12x8mt) equipped with all necessary to sunbathe all day long enjoying the stunning view of the hills all around and little paradisespots where to sit for a light lunch or a snack by the pool. Hidden beside the pool you will find a romantic Pergola, where the shadow will recover you after a sunny day; tables and chairs arethere for breakfast or candle light dinners. A cosy courtyard with sofas and armchairs accompany you to the interior of the house. The Billiard room is the main common area of the whole house. A stoned fireplace surrounded by velvet sofas, a furnished library with books and antiques then the billiard room, with chessboard and the grand Cannon Carambola table. By the sofa area, you will find also a projector where to enjoy a good movie or sports events. Still on the ground floor is the dining room for breakfast in the morning and dinners at night. The dining room respects the country style of the house: light colours for tables and chairs fabrics, white linen for the tables. Three Suites are on the ground floor, each with private garden with roses and climber grapevine Pergola, sunbathe bed chairs and tables for room-served breakfasts. The other four Suites are on the first floor: two can be connected and become a large apartment with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a common living room with sofa bed and fire-place. The grandestroomof the house is "Suite Olmo"composed by a double bedroom with bathroom, common living room with fireplace and a smaller bedroom with single bed and private bathroom. The most scenery room of the house is for sure the "Library Suite"; it was the original Granary room for the old farmhouse and offers a 180° view on the countryside with a spectacular bricked wall which illuminates the high ceiling room (4 mt). Each roomis equipped with satellite tvs, safes, air-conditioning/heating; beds are covered by romantic canopies, wear cotton satin linens and have comfortable mattress (most of them are Simmons, except two special sized) Bathrooms have bathtubs and grand shower stull with powerful shower heads. Equipped with professional hairdryer, courtesy service with an Argan line of soaps and cremes, soft terry towel and bathrobes; from most of the bathrooms you can enjoy the marvellous view that L'Olmo offers form every side. The location is central with the most beautiful cities of Tuscany renaissance and is the ideal place to enjoy the nature, the peace and beauty of the Val d'Orcia and, last but not least, thanks to the special colours and lights of the landscape, it is perfect for photography lovers.

Where do I begin to describe one of the most memorable experiences of our lives? let's start with the the setting of L'Olmo. The 360 degree views of amber rolling fields of grain, olive groves and vineyards. Distant views of two UNESCO World Heritage sites. The farmhouse is simply gorgeous. The quintessential Tuscan experience. The room was spacious, clean and appointed with everything you could need or want. The staff is attentive, experienced, knowledgeable and there to provide guests with every creature comfort. Antony, Gabriella and Guilia and the housekeeping staff made our stay by far the best vacation we have had to date. Antony is a rare gem. He is the heart and soul of this magical place. Always there and asking if we needed anything and making sure we were happy. The pool and food were exquisite. We would highly recommend L'Olmo to anyone seeking the very best that a genuine Tuscan experience has to offer. A hidden gem that we hope stays that way. We'll be back often.... Randy & Elena Pierce

Having spent many holidays in Vald d'Orcia and the area around Pienza and Montalchino we finally found the perfect place to stay! Fabulous location, with 360° views on to a glorious landscape seemingly unchanged since the 1500-s! Add to this beutifully furnished rooms, top service and a perfect infinity pool and you just have to stay there! Breakfast is of course fabulous... Don't miss it!

We were lucky to be able to visit L'Olmo during our honeymoon in September. The hotel took Covid-19 precautions very seriously which was reassuring and impressive - we felt very safe during this difficult time for the hospitality industry. Perhaps the added pressure of dealing with guest safety during this pandemic has changed the atmosphere described in other reviews, as we found it a little stressed, brusque and almost as if we were at school. Basic breakfast of bread and coffee is included but anything such as eggs or juice costs extra. It also costs extra to rent bikes. For the price we paid (over £400 per night), I would expect such things to be included. Unfortunately we had a lot of crickets in our room which I appreciate come with country living but when I raised the problem, I felt somewhat chastised. Rooms were gorgeous and the setting outstandingly beautiful - similar to what you find in this area generally. The pool was also fabulous. Anthony was fantastic. In short, lovely but overpriced and atmosphere / service not what we had hoped for.

Dear Mrs. Rebecca S, We thank you very much for your review and for being our Guests during this difficult season. As you noticed we did our best to assure the highest attention to the safety of our guests and of our staff by following a series of rules of which our Guests are informed before the arrival via email. Our aim is always to let our Guests have the most pleasant stay and vacation by us and we are sorry if you found a stressed atmosphere. For sure we had to accept the compromise to partially renounce to the usual atmosphere by adopting rigid and without exception behaviour to ensure the safety of all our clients and staff. Regarding our breakfast, we are sorry you found it basic; it is a Continental breakfast and includes fresh pastries, home cooked cakes, fresh croissants and fresh breads, fresh sliced fruits, local homemade jams and honey, a variety of yogurts and cereals. Our Guests can order as many coffees as they like (hot chocolates, espresso, americano, cappuccino etc) plus we have and an à la carte breakfast menu with local Pecorino sheep cheeses, hams and salami, eggs, and centrifuges. Fresh squeezed fruit juices and mono-portion fruit juices are also included and not à la carte. We are sorry you found crickets in your room; this September was warmer than usual and we had a lot of crickets (more than usual) coming inside the house. We are happy to know you have enjoyed the beauty of the country, your room and our pool and we thank you for your kind words about Antony. We really hope you will be able to come again to Tuscany and that we will have the pleasure of having you again among our Guests at L’Olmo.

This quaint hotel is perfect for a Tuscany vacation. Rooms are beautifully appointed, very comfortable, and the staff is very professional yet fun & friendly. We spent 2 nights here and we wished we would have stayed longer. We highly recommend L'Olmo and reservations are a must. We also ate dinner here and, again, the quality/selection of food and wine is fantastic. Service was excellent, food was prepared perfectly, the wine pairings were right on, and our evening was just perfect.
