It was everything we hoped for and more. Everything was top notch, from the location to the amenities. Since we rented both apartments, it was very private.
The villa itself. We felt like we were living in an impressionist painting.
The favorite part of my vacation was having a cup of coffee on the veranda looking at the Tuscan countryside dotted with hay bales. An incredibly peaceful experience.
The air conditioning, which worked, but not up to US standards.
Exploring the little walled medieval towns which were all less than an hour's drive from the Villa (Pienza, Montichellio, Montepulciano, and Siena!)
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montichiello - the Villa is a mile off the main road so nothing was within walking distance
Tips or Restaurants:
The property was well-equipped (linens, towels, blow dryers) but had no WiFi. Future renters should bring their own portable hot spots such as Mifi. In Monticchiello , La Porta was incredible. In the outskirts of Pienza, the Agriturismo La Fonte was by far the best meal we had in Tuscany.
GPS is a necessity!
Check In Out:
The manager was excellent. We called ahead she waited for us at the turn off from the main road (without following her we would never have found the Villa- even with GPS). She welcomed us with local wines, bottled water, and delicious fresh focaccia. Check out was easy and timely.
