Review 5148: Le Manzinaie, Apartment


Review by Don and Laurie from Canada

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


Mid September 2011, 3 nights


We can only think superlatives. Fiore, Marzia, Alice and Rufus (the wonderful dog) stole our hearts. Our only regret was that we were only able to stay three nights and missed out on the weekly dinner put on by this wonderful, obliging family. We traveled around Tuscany for a week and then the Amalfi Coast for another. We stayed in fine hotels and resorts but this was our favourite by far. We were invited to help ourselves to the vegetable and herb gardens and from these and purchases of the local pici (thick round pasta)and Chianti wine my wife was able to make a wonderful pasta dinner from scratch in the well equipped kitchen. Our apartment was roomy, very clean and very comfortable with high ceilings that allowed us to stay cool in the unusual September heat. We enjoyed the the beautiful, well-kept grounds and swimming pool. After touring the hill towns nearby, it was a real treat to come back to this little slice of heaven!
