Podere Le Manzinaie was recommended to us by friends from Ottawa who have stayed here during their visit to Tuscany. The place surely met more than our expectations. We arrived with 2 other couples and we were immediately impressed with the cypress-lined entrance and the warm welcome extended to us by Alice, Marzia and Fiore. Before we could even see our Villa they offered us wine, capuccino,and water... we felt immediately at home with our hosts.
Villa Iris is well appointed with comfortable beds, sparkling clean bathrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen. It's perfect for 3 couples. The grounds and pool are well maintained--we love the patio for our "Happy Hours". We noticed that our fridge was stocked with goodies when we arrived...there was a basket of bread and sweets on the counter, and a bottle of wine awaiting us--so welcoming. Fiore invited us to enjoy the fruit from their orchard and the vegetables from the garden...we certainly did...had fruit salad with yogurt every morning and fresh salad at night when we ate in. Just wonderful!
One of the highlights of our stay was the 9-course meal that the family prepared for 25 guests including friends of ours who came to visit us. Marzia extended an invitation to them....now that is hospitality plus!!
Alice has been so helpful anwering our questions from the time I started corresponding with her until the time that we had to say "Arrivederci" Podere Le Manzinaie.
We highly recommend this gem of a place in Montepulciano to anybody who wants to visit Tuscany. It's central and with easy access to places of interest in Tuscany.
