“Nice, isolated place”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

First of all - I was very surprised by the intensity of communication with Paolo - the owner. Few minutes after doing the reservation over booking.com, I received e-mail with a greeting and instructions - much appreciated. Paolo was really very nice host, welcomed us with a bottle of wine and helped us with several bookings and track itineraries. The location is very isolated (about 5km gravel road drive), so you can enjoy the countryside without any disturbing elements. Stunning sunsets, lovely pool area...simply perfect. The only thing we did not like so much was the double-bed. It had seen better times and it was too soft and VERY squeaky for a comfortable sleep. Apart from that - superb and well recommended!

Tuscany feeling with whole heart!
Great place to stay - for families or when you are traveling with friends.
Starting from here you can visit all famous cities, but also all small and beautiful places that shows Tuscany spirit and feeling.
The owners were very helpful and friendly.

Great place on lazy holiday. Beautiful Tuscan views, nice apartments, pool, next to the vineyards and ...silence :). You should visit the beautiful surrounding towns: Val d'Orcia, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino.

We were in june 2012 in Il Tigliolo. Nice appartments in an old beautiful restored medieval farmhouse surrounded by olives and grapes. We had the appartment Ginepro. It was very hot in Tuscany during our stay there but the house is very cool and pleasant, you can use free internet on your own devices. The big garden and the pool are well kept. There are a lot of comfortable chairs around the pool. There is enough shade under a huge oak tree and there are plenty of parasols. There is only one negative point to mention and that is the strada bianca of 8 km from san Quirico to il Tigliolo. You'll have to clean your car afterwards because it will be all covered with white dust. But that strada is also positive there is less traffic and on the border of the same road we saw snakes, deer, rare birds and beautiful plants.
The owners, father and son are friendly and helpfull. the younger ones speak English and the father speaks french.
San Quirico is the village for shopping (Coop) and there are a lot of nice smaller medieval villages nearby.

Near the pool we saw young Hoepoos!

We stayed 1 week in Il Tigliolo in august 2011. Great place, very quiet and very friendly welcome from Paolo. Very nice vieuws in the Val d'Orcia covered with vineyards, olivetrees in the tipical tuscan hills. Excellent starting point to visit Montalcino(15 km), Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, Siena(40 km), Montepulciano(25km), Crete Sinese...
The podere Il Tigliolo is situated along a "strada bianca"(5 km) from the village of San Quirico where you can find food-shops, restaurants, bakery...
The appartment was very clean with 2 bedrooms,kitchen, bathroom and living. Outside each appartment there is a patio with furniture and umbrella. Nice, big swimmingpool,
lovely garden with barbecue and parking area for the car. Bike-rent is possible too and we did some very nice, technical MTB trips jn the region with a lot of climbing and downhill activity.
A lot of visits possible in the region at the local farms to taste the home-made products such as wine(Rosso d'Orcia IGT), olive-oil and honey.
Very good restaurants in villages as San Quirico, Montalcino, Pienza and Castiglione d'Orcia). Also the perfect region to taste the Brunello wine (Montalcino), the Vino Nobile di Montipulciano and the local Val d'Orcia wines...
We enjoyed it very much and we will go back next year for the third time.

We had an amazing stay at Tigliolo!!! Paolo and his family made our family feel so comfortable. The property is a great size and given its remote location, the kind of place you let your kids run around and don't worry about anything happening to them. This is a very special place!

...z dala od zgiełku i ruchu wielkich miast, pośród pięknych winnic i gajów oliwnych...Fantastyczne miejsce żeby wypocząć i powałęsać się po toskańskiej wsi...Dobre miejsce wypadowe do większych toskańskich miast. Spędziliśmy tam 10 dni i na pewno chcielibyśmy wrócić....Bardzo czysty, zadbany i wygodny basen, dużo prywatności i spokoju... Polecamy gorąco!
