“a really pretty place”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

The Piombaia agriturismo is a pretty place full of charm and country side atmosphere, a place where to find the deepest relax and romanticism at the same time.
The view is unforgettable and the only noises you can hear are those typical of the country life.
I didn ‘t have the chance to try breakfast but I am sure it is as good as everything else. The room was large at least 60 sqm with a wonderful king size bed and double size shower, the living room was large and comfortable, the pool and the Jacuzzi at 10 meters from room… just too bad I was there in March: still to cold to enjoy it!

We booked Piombaia at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised by our find.
Although we only stayed for 1 night we were appreciative of the friendly service and central location.
Big rooms and the pool make this a great option for those with kids.
This place is certainly worth considering if you are looking for good value.

First impressions are important and upon arrival we were really impressed: after passing through the beautiful town of Montalcino we arrived at this wonderful location. We were greeted like family and given a virtual guided tour of the surrounding sites. Isabelle recommended us to see outstanding places in the vicinity and she conveyed enthusiasm and passion. The apartment had everything you would have expected and was very comfortable. The panorama of hills and valleys is simply beautiful and the grounds are kept in very good repair with pool, jacuzzi, playground and gazebo. Tasting of the organically produced wines of this estate gave us another positive surprise: smooth, well balanced and convincing. We enjoyed a delicious dinner with professional, dedicated service to round up the impressions. Certainly a place to remember for the next vacation.

We stayed for a weekend with family at the agriturismo Piombaia. The setting was beautiful on the slopes near Montalcino, with only a 5-10 minutes drive into the town itself. What we especially liked, was the friendly welcome and very attentive personnel - you really did get the feeling they were there to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The room we stayed in was very spacious, more than adequate for a family of four. It was spotlessly clean, cosy, although fairly basic what comes to furniture and equipment. Only thing to complain about was the shower that was broken and didn't function appropriately. The highlight of our stay was a visit to the actual vineyard - once again we were met with the utmost courtesy and friendliness, shown around and explained in detail how they produced their wines. A very different experience from other similar visits, which have felt sterile and rigid, in comparison to the attentive and personal guidance we were given here. Overall, we had an excellent stay at the agriturismo, and felt that price, service and rooms met our expectations

Stayed for one week. Great to have a small apartment with separate living quarters and kitchenette. Kirchen had enough anenities to get by except no kitchen towels However when staying for a week it would have been nice to have a change of towels. The shower leaked and the shower head was broken so not much of a shower. It is located within a couple kms of Montalcino so convenient. We could not locate the farm on our GPS so a little tip. Set your GPS for the Abbey S'Antimo. After you exit the main traffic circle in Montalcino set the odometer for approx 2.7 km. Piombaia is on the left. Watch for the black and yellow sign.

We have been home only a fewweek and it seems like a monthws since we were at Piombaia. Wendy and I had a most wonderful stay. I must say that it was one of or the best vacations that I can remember. The beauty all around, the balmy weather, the good company and a wonderful apartment in which to stay. I have said to Wendy that I could stay there forever.

In addition your wine, Rossa de Montalciano, was a great discovery. I personally believe it as good as any of the French Bordeauxs' and is like a wine that I have always liked called Chateau Talbot from the Saint Julian appellation but is very expensive. I hope to enjoy your wine for awhile before the world discovers it.

We had dinner at the restaurant San Valetino that Cecilia had mentioned. The dinner was excellent. Sitting on the patio overlooking the valley at sunset was divine.

The place is nice as the sourronding and the garden (well kept). The building (exterior) very typical (postcard style).
I stayed in a 2 rooms apartment and it was ok but personally i expected something more characteristic, more country style.
Cannot judge the restaurant for the dinner, but breakfast was very simple.
The owner was kind and helpful in finding us an alternative accomodation (we had a problem of booking misunderstanding).
