Great location, lovely accommodations, and gracious, hospital hosts.

Our week at Le Manzinaie near Montepulciano was the highlight of our 3 weeks in Italy.

The accommodations were first class: roomy, clean, nicely decorated, and furnished with every amenity. Even better was the warm welcome and gracious hospitality of the Grassi family. Alice went over and above to connect us with a local bike touring company and translated perfectly for us during an arranged winery tour.

And of course, the cooking class and family-style meal with our fellow guests were exceptional. The farm's location is perfect for day trips to the nearby Tuscan towns and wineries. It's also conveniently located to food shops, restaurants, and a laundry.

We especially appreciated the welcome basket and stocked refrigerator - they made our first breakfast a breeze!

This farm vacation in Tuscany was terrific. The host family was helpful and warm; apartments are lovely, clean and comfortable.

We just returned from a visit to Tuscany and stayed for about a week at Le Manzinaie. The host family couldn't be nicer: the facilities are lovely; price is very reasonable.

The hotel is out in the country, about 15 minutes from Montepulciano. We were made to feel totally comfortable; received good advice about where to go, etc. Privacy is respected but the family is always available. One of the highlights was a wonderful dinner, prepared by Marcia, with the other guests. We paid about 545 for the week.

Driving is not easy in Tuscany: narrow winding roads, but incredible vistas around every corner. We highly recommend this place!!
