2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Gracciano, Montepulciano, Tuscany
The cottage is opposite the owner's house and consists of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large living room with cooking area. The living area opens onto a patio and pergola and the downstairs bedroom also opens onto a small patio. There is access for the disabled and the garden is entirely fenced in and ideal for families, being perfectly safe for small children. There is an above ground swimming pool, 5.5 metres in diameter and about 1 metre deep, suitable for children but which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

We booked the whole cottage for a week to tour Tuscany/Umbria along with a train journey to Rome, so it was nice and central to where we needed to be. I also wanted somewhere we could chill for maybe a day or two around the pool after being in Florence and Pisa. The cottage is as pictured although we found...

Management response:

Many thanks for your review- we do our best to accommodate the needs of all our guests and always find feedback very helpful. It is true that air conditioning is an extra cost but guests have always found it very modest and indeed a total of €20 for the whole week does not seem excessive. A great many of our...

We stayed in this beautiful Tuscan cottage at the end of July for 2 weeks. It was perfect for our family including a 5 year old and a baby of 7 months - who both loved the pop up pool and big garden to run around in. Laura couldn't do enough for us, ensuring we knew all the local spots...

About the neighbourhood
Apart from the artistic and historical treasures to be discovered, there are local festivities and events in every little town. To mention just a few, the donkey race in Torrita di Siena is accompanied by processions in medieval dress and an impressive flag waving performance, and the yearly barrel pushing contest up the streets of Montepulciano in August is immensely popular. At the internationally acclaimed Teatro Povero di Monticchiello where residents take part in an open-air theatre in the summer , local cooking can be sampled in the evenings in the crypt of the church. Last but not least the wonderful countryside and picturesque streets of the little towns make this a walker's paradise.
Getting around
Wine tastings at local wineries are possible, an outing in the woods searching for truffles with a local expert (subject to seasonal and weather conditions), or a day at the hot spring baths of which there are several in the area, either transformed into a swimming pool or the natural pools in the coungtryside.
