We are just back from a week in Belmonte Vacanze with our two girls 12 and 14. it is a fabulous location. it feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but you are 20 mins from San gimignano and about the same to Volterra. It also has a small village a five minute walk away up a bit of a hill which has two restaurants and a mini market. We were in a two bed apartment which was very big and clean with lots of dishes etc and everything you would need. The view from the balcony was amazing. The family are very friendly and there if you need them. We played tennis, volleyball, table tennis and it is the most amazing pool with the most amazing view.

There is lots to see in tuscany and we have been to tuscany a number of times but this time it was hard to tear ourselves away from this most relaxing spot.

Room Tip: Apartment 28 is very nice with a lovely view of the hills from the balcony. the better views are in...

Perfect setting in the Tuscan hills. The grounds are beautifully kept with an amazing swimming pool. There is also table tennis, tennis courts etc. Easy enough to tour around to places such as San gimignano and Siena. Great supermarkets like the co-op and PAM about a 10mins drive and also a mini market 20 min walk max as well as a couple of restaurants. The smell of Rosemary will always give me lovely memories of Belmonte as they have hedges planted around the borders.
The apartments are spotless and spacious. A week was not long enough. Wish we booked for longer. We had an upstairs apartment which gave unrestricted views. Could even see their beautiful horse at times. Hope to return.

We have visited Belmonte now for three times. Two times in June, once in March as a gift to my mom. With a reason because for us it is always a bit like coming home.

Piero, Simona, Elisa and Lauro are always very friendly and helpful and we have had many drinks with them in their central piazza.

The apartments are simple, but very much sufficient. We typically stay at the apartments for half days to have breakfast, have a swim and get lost in a good book. We don't need all unnecessary luxury. The beds are OK, bathrooms and kitchen complete and clean.

The pool and it's view on the valley is magnificent. Coming from a busy job it is a good place to really forget all the high-speed performance we have to give everyday back home.

Iano seems to be in the middle of nowhere, but that is not so much true. From Belmonte, Iano (and it's supermarket and restaurants) are within walking distance. San Gimignano and Volterra are a 20 mins drive; Florence, Pisa, Siena and Lucca approx. 45 mins. This might seem a bit long, but the tours are always great to drive as you pass by the best scenery in Europe that I've come across.

I have seen much of Italy in my life, from the Garda and Como lake to Sicily and the Aeoleans, but Lauro and his family are still my favorite!

Our stay could not have been better.
The property is beyond beautiful, amenities plentiful, staff friendly and helpful, and apartment was very clean. Close proximity to many areas for day trips. We were sad to leave!

First time in Italy for a prolonged stay for us this summer. First time also since long with other guests nearby. We used to stay in somewhat secluded places in France before (homes with private pools).
The setting is astonishing and the view on the valley is magnificent. Apartments are very spacious, but can be a bit noisy if the people above start wandering about.
The communal pool is very large and there is a lot of space available.
Cannot say I have missed anything here, except perhaps for a stable WiFi connection (even though it is included in the price, so my remarks are perhaps somewhat ungrateful) and some comfy sun beds. There are no cushions and I can assure you you will feel your back and all the bones in your body after a day's sunbathing.
What also struck me is that a lot of work is done to keep the premises clean every day. Staff is extremely responsive and highly available.
I will certainly come back to this region. Belmonte Vacanze will definitely be on my shortlist.

We spend a one week, two-family (7 children) at Belmonte Vacanze this June. It was exactly as we had hoped. The facilities were clean, well-kept and truly Tuscan. The view from our apartment and the pool was so unbelievably beautiful, it felt like a dream. A wonderful touch was the cheerful, Italian-only speaking young lady who delivered groceries each morning to our door. Our hosts, Lauro and his mother were very knowlegeable and ready to assist in any way. We made easy day trips to Pisa and Florence and evening trips to San Gimignano and Volterra, which was a perfect way to avoid the touristy crowds. The nearby town of Iano, which is hilly, but very walkable, had two wonderful restaurants and a small market. If you are looking for a truly authentic Tuscan vacation with great amenities, this is the place to stay.

Dear Ias22, this is Lauro speaking and I wish to thank you so much for the kind words you spent about the hospitality of my family.
Visiting San Gimignano and Volterra by evening during summer is defently a good choice to enjoy these beautiful towns.
We are happy to hear you had a good stay with us in Tuscany and we hope to host you soon again.
Best regards.

We spent fantastic 8 days in Belmonte vacaneze. The location is excellent. about 1 hour from Florence , Pisa and Siena. Very close to the beautiful San Gimignano ( where we tasted one of the best ice cream in Italy) and Voltera. The view is fabulous.
The apartments are comfortable : Very clean , Kitchen corner fully equipped, nice playground for the children . We took horse riding lessons for our kids (4 and 8 years old)- Recommended.
The minor disatventage is that the double bed in the bed room is actually joined two beds.

Hello dear Limor and thank you so much for such wonderfoul review.
We have seen that you have appreciated the panoramic view of our resort.
Honestly is I can still surprise myself looking at the panorma over our Tuscan hills.
I am happy to hear that you children enjoyed some riding lessons with our guides.
I hope they will carry on at home with this marvellous sport.
The double beds are made up with single beds joined.This seemed us to be the best solution when we have furnished the apartments. I hope that they have not affected too much your sleep.
Otherwise I invite you to contact me personally for deeper tips. It would be appreciated by me.
Thank you so much for you review. I hope to host you in Belmonte again as soon as possible.
