“A quiet & peaceful stay - soaking in Tuscany !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Based on a friend's recommendation we chose to stay here. Since its away from Montalcino, having your own car/transport is recommended. The place is very peaceful & away from the city noise/traffic - a welcome break for us after Rome, Venice & Florence ...
We were the only ones staying here, so it added to the fun. The outdoor Jacuzzi was amazing & we did dive in despite low temperatures outside.
The restaurant next to it serves average food, we were not too happy with it, after the first meal on Day 1, so chose to eat out on all days.
The rooms (apartment) is clean, basic & with a kitchenette. It was fun cooking breakfast everyday with stuff that we bought from the supermarket. The dining area was nice to just sit around & talk to friends. We also visited the vineyard, which was again a pleasure - especially interacting with the family. They were all very warm.
Highly recommended if you want to spend some quiet moments with friends & family, and soak in the Tuscany countryside...

Spacious room with living room and a kitchenette. Beautiful and peaceful environment located next to Biondi Santi winery. We had good sleep for our 6 nights stay here. Friendly management. The restaurant next to it is also good. The only complain is that there is no in-room wifi, only in common sitting room and office.

To stay here, you must have your own transport.

Beautiful, peaceful, friendly, excellent food, superb wine!
We could easily have spent our full week here but unfortunately we had already booked other places to stay. This is a perfect base to stay and view Tuscany from.

We had a wonderful stay at Piombaia. So thankful for the stay!
Nice, genuine rooms with plenty of space. My room had the biggest double bed I have ever slept in and a lovely view of Toscany vineyards.

A free bottle of Piombaias lovely red wine awaited us in the room. A smal fresh kitchenette and nice clean shower. The bedroom and living room/kitchen is build in a " genuin Toscany way"
- good genuin class together with easiness/simplicity in every peace, funiture (and also in services).

Pool area with comfortable sunbeds, sitting groups in the garden and also a outdoor bubble-pool. There is also places for children to play in the big garden rounded by lavendula and rosmarino. You have also a possibility to have your own breakfast, picnic or bbq in the nice garden if you wish.

Piombaia is located a few kilometers from Montalcino, that you best reach by car. For those who are use to walk (as we are) you can also walk to Moltacino, but you have to walk on the street made for cars only:). But a lovely walk it was to Montalcino in the beautiful nature of Toscany. Then a good lunch when arrival at the Piombaia.

The restaurant "la Crocina" located in Piombaia, served us the best dinner on my 10 days of stay in Toscany. The tunafish meal we ate was one of the best dinner moment I have had, thanks Crocina! And the service was also here professional togather with friendly.

The Olivoil that I bought in the reception on the white bread by the pool in the morning was a lovely and magic start of the day. My tastebuds was so happy. The pool buy the way, is surrounded by millions of lavendula and gave both eyes and nose what they had longed for.

The service at Piombaia was always very professional and at the same time friendly, no problem to communicate in English.

Very lovely choice that I can warmest recommend. For alone travelers, couples and families.

Nice, genuine rooms with plenty of space. We had the Fienile room for four nights, large living room, large bedroom with comfortable beds and an OK standard bathroom. Small, rather aged kitchenette (bring your own dish soap), but functional. A free bottle of very tasty red wine awaited us in the room.

Possibility to have your own breakfast, picnic or bbq in the nice garden.

Pool area with comfortable sunbeds, also a bubble-pool which we never came around to use.

Shaded parking was very nice and there was always place for us to park.

Location was a few kilometers from Montalcino but not really possible to walk since there's no space for pedestrians on the road. With the help from reception we got to order a very expensive taxi after a dinner in Montalcino. However, the restaurant la Crocina which is located in Piombaia is probably the best in the area which is a huge plus for the whole experience. We had dinner there three nights with always excellent food and service.

The service at Piombaia was always very helpful and friendly and no problem to communicate in English.

Very happy with the chioce and can recommend it for couples and families.

We stayed here for a night in July and everything was perfect - if only it was a lilttle hard to find. We arrived late, but the hostess waited for us and she was very nice. Beautiful surroundings and lovely house. Everything was well kept and very clean, including the pool, surrounded by tall lavender bushes.
