Review 1828: Le Manzinaie, Apartment


Review by alison n from London, UK

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


July 2005, 2 weeks


Set in countryside, surrounded by farmland with Tuscan sunflowers and corn - quiet and lush private gardens.

Nearby Amenities

Nearest grocery stores were about 1/2 to 1 mile - excellent range of local stores stocking everything needed.

The House/Apartment

Historical building, superb shape, peaceful and quiet. About 6 apartments in building and 1 small house available for letting on this small farm.


Superb pool and gardens with different sitting areas (in and out of the sun).

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

All furniture was top quality and comfortable. Apartment was spotless and cleaned thoroughly each week with change of sheets and towels.


Beds were luxurious and very comfortable. Bathroom was equipped with jacuzzi and stand alone shower - excellent.


Plenty of pots and pans and of good quality in the kitchen. Very much enjoyed using the facilities in the kitchen for all meals when we chose to eat in.

Problems or Bonuses

Only good surprises - Warmth and hospitality of the owners and superb company from other guests.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Booked directly with the owners.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I didnít want to tell this secret, but itís too good to keep to myself. I canít recall the exact words I used to search for Le Manzinaie on the net, itís a shame as I hit gold. Perhaps they were a mix of - Quality, apartment, peaceful, relaxing, clean, friendly, quiet, welcoming, home-from-home, pool, Siena, Montepulciano, quality, Tuscany, references Ė who knows, but it worked like magic and describe Le Manzinaie to a T. What we couldnít have anticipated was the warm welcome and generous hospitality. We met some interesting and fun people and will join many in returning year after year. The secretís out, maybe weíll see you there?

Things to do in this area

Loads of historic visits to be made to Siena and Multepulcian and Chuisi - just to name a few!
