Review 1488: La Crociona, Apartment A


Review by Liz S from WA

apartments on an estate near Montalcino, Tuscany South


May 27 - June 1, 2005, 6 nights


Fiorella and her family will give you a warm welcome to their agriturismo, La Crociona, just 2.5 k from Montalcino.

The apartment ("Apt. A") we rented for four adults had two large nicely-appointed bedrooms with double beds, a good-sized bath, a small living/dining room and a small but well-equipped kitchen. After a day of site-seeing it was lovely to sit in the quiet, shaded back yard or relax in the spacious swimming pool.

For those who rent a car, La Crociona is conveniently located to tour Siena and hill towns in central Tuscany: less than 1 hour from Siena and Montepulciano and 45 minutes from Pienza or minutes from SS2 to drive further north or southwest to the coast.

An additional and unusual amenity is a fine restaurant, La Cocina, located just down the driveway. After a day out and about, walking less than five minutes, rather than getting back into the car, was delightful!
