We stayed at this beautifully quiet and relaxing Tuscan country home for four nigts and we can say and it was really the best place we could choose - Francesca is a really nice host, the homemade breakfasts, served outdoors in front of our room, were just incredible, and we had the best sleep in the peace and quiet. The location is in the middle of beautiful Tuscan countryside - perfect for trips to nearby towns, visiting wine cellars, taking photos or just relaxing. Just a perfect Tuscan stay!
I wish I could have spent more than just a few days here. It was absolutely everything I wanted in a Tuscan stay. The location is perfect for visiting the surrounding areas, sightseeing, cheese tasting... basically everything you want to do in Tuscany and the Val D'Orcia. The room was clean, good sized, and the breakfasts every morning were the perfect way to start out. Carla and Francesca were both so friendly and welcoming. I can't wait to go back one day!
I decided to book a room here after reading the reviews and seeing its pretty central to Pienza and Montepulciano. I believe this was a great find!! Below are some comments: --Room: Prefect size for us! There's no heat or A/C which was fine for us in October (it stayed a perfect temperature inside for us). However in the summer I can imagine it gets hot/stuffy. The room was also very quiet. We didn't hear at neighbors at all which initially I thought we would. --Shower: Defintely one of the best ones on our trip. It was spacious and had great pressure. --Bed: Very comfortable with plenty of covers incase it got cold. However we did not need the extra blankets. --Location: You're definitely out in the country! It's a 1 km walk to Monticchiello but it's a very small town. It was 10 minute drive to Pienza and 15-20 minute drive to Montepulciano. We loved Montepulciano and will stay there next time!! Its a beautiful town that is not as sleepy as Monticchiello. --Breakfast: Delicious and made with love!! Very large mix of items and a delicious cappuccino! --Hospitality: Excellent! You feel like your staying at grandma's house! Very cute :'). Carla's English is not that great but Francesca feels like a old time friend and has great English. Overall I recommend staying here if you're looking to stay in Monticchiello. There's on 3 rooms so book way in advance!!…
We were lucky enough to stay with Carla and Francesca for one night late in the season. This place is straight out of a Tuscan postcard or country living magazine. The rooms were comfortable and extra blankets provided a very cozy evening on a chilly October night. The access to the grounds around the B&B were lovely and the views up to Monticchiello and of the cyprus-lined country road were lovely. Francesca was an incredible host, talking with us about the area and providing an excellent cooked breakfast with vegetables from her own garden! We loved getting to know her and hear about her love of the area. If you want a local, country-chic place to stay and to be treated like family – this is your place; we wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you so much for these fantastic 2 nights and 2 breakfast. This place have something special. And YES the breakfast is definitely a highlight. Cooked with love (and local product), superbe home made Cappuccino... Mama mia :-) We will be back
