Reviewed 16 August 2013

This will be our fifth visit and we will keep coming back. It is like a home from home. Each time we come it is different yet so familiar. Siena is a wonderful place each turn of a corner reveals something new. No one holiday has been the same. If you are looking for the ultimate relaxing holiday then look no further.

I was fortunate enough to visit this beautiful vineyard during a recent stay in Siena. Everything about it was wonderful especially the wine! Alessandro Griccioli was a gracious and welcoming host. One of the highlights of my trip!

Well, if anyone ever wants to fall in love with Tuscany then just head right to the Montechiaro Estates. The views of the valley are exquisite. The food is magnificent. The Griccioli family is elegant and kind, and the wine! Have I yet mentioned the wine? Superb. In fact, our whole group already started placing orders. I just cannot imagine any more beautiful spot to spend a few days soaking in the Italian sunshine while inhaling the sweet smell of lemon blossoms. I want to go back, NOW!

On our drive from Florence through Tuscany, we stopped at the Montechiaro vineyard for a wine tour and tasting. I highly recommend it! Alessandro Griccioli was a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable about the production and marketing of wine. The Griccioli family has lived on the property for years and were able to tell stories of the history of Tuscany and the change in their lifestyle over the years. This wine tour was the quintessential Tuscan experience and is a must if you travel to the Sienna area!

Just got back from a great family holiday at La Capannina. A really beautiful spot in the hills around Siena, and the Griccioli family were extremely welcoming, friendly and did all they could to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Only regret is that we were a little too early in the season for the swimming pool. Next time! We particularly enjoyed playing tennis in the cool of the evening with stunning views of Siena in the distance. Fabulous.

We stayed in La Capannina - lovely converted barn with pool - breakfast everyday on the terrace overlooking the farm. We were looked after well by the Griccioli family - we were shown round the garden of the main house with lovely views towards Siena. Alessandro and Pietro were very helpful. The wine we bought from the estate was excellent and we ordered more for delivery to our home in England - already delivered! Plenty still to see in the surrounding countryside when we go back.

Reviewed 9 September 2011

We stayed in La Capana for a week in July 2011. We were a family of eleven plus one friend. My Italian is not good enough to answer the individual questions but we found everything to our taste. The house itself, the facilites, the garden first class. The view to Sienna was unrivalled, particularly in the evening and at night. The swimming pool was much larger than those of any other villas that we have rented in the past and was sufficiently far away from the house so that the smaller children could shout and scream (as children do) without being a nuisance to anyone.

While being isolated the house was within easy distance of Sienna and one of our party walked in to town and back (for exercise) every morning before breakfast ( a longish walk and only for the fit.

We were there in a heatwave but with the fans provided it was cool enough to sleep.

The visit to the winery on the estate was a bonus. we orderee two cases and are still drinkiing them. The extar virgin olive oil is probably the best hat we have ever tasted.

The only negative were the mosquitoes but next time we shall be armed with anti-mos from the start. All twelve of us voted that it was one of the best holidays that we have had and would like to return.
