Montepulciano: Agriturismo Le Caggiole


Reviewed by: jmasters from USA, review #3063

When: March 2011

The best of Tuscany, including your own Italian mother!

We have had the pleasure of staying at LeCaggiole twice, the most recent in early March of this year. We were in Italy for the wedding of an Italian friend, and LeCaggiole was, fortunately for us, on our way.

Giacomo and his mother were the perfect hosts. Mama Ornella will provide for you the most sumptious breakfasts, and Giacomo is always available to recomend the perfect restaurant, travel destination, or itinerary that you desire. We have stayed in two of the rooms in the 1000 year old accommodations, and were delighted each time. The rooms are always spotless, and fitted with the finest of Italian antiques, always comfortable, and full of family history(mama Ornella was born in one of the rooms we stayed in).

Giacomo produces some of the finest wine that you will find in the region, along with some of the best olive oil I have ever used. Mama's preserves and pastas are second to none. I know - she taught me how to make her famous PICI pasta for a wonderful meal one evening!

If you want the real Tuscany, and not the slick glossy advertising version, stay with Giacomo and his family. They are the perfect hosts, and will make sure that your time in Montepulciano will be as perfect as it can be! It is a wonderful place, Enjoy!!!
