Great place in a great location. Very helpful owner (John) who ensures that each guest has a great experience while in being in Tuscany. This town (Montefollonico) is ideally situated near Montepulciano and Pinza in the heart of Tuscany. Fabulous!!!!

Management response:

Thanks. We do try to make sure our guests have a great experience. And make sure they are introduced to the best restaurants, wines, ...our area offers.

Wonderful location and wonderful apartment. John, the owner, was extremely attentive and helpful. We wished we had longer here.

Management response:

Thanks for the review. Our guests always wish they had longer at our apartment. It is hard for me to say beforehand you should give less time to Rome, or Florence, over humble Montefollonico but inevitably they wish they had more time for the Tuscan hill towns. I think a second trip is called for. :)

Montefollonico is a quaint town, close to Montalcino, Pienza & Montapulciano with everything you need for a Tuscan get away. It has a market on Tuesdays, a small grocery store, several restaurants and wine! We spent 6 nights and found it to be comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you need, the rooms & beds...

Management response:

Thanks Paul for the kind words. We do work to get the details right so people can focus on enjoying the beauty of the area. So its nice to get a compliment!
