Review 5408: Le Manzinaie, Apartment


Review by Ali D from UK

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


August 2012, 2 weeks


Stunning location right near beautiful Montepulciano and within easy reach of Cortona, Siena, Pienza and many more. Very private setting in beautiful grounds.

Nearby Amenities

Not far from grocery stores and restaurants but you do need a car to stay here.

The House/Apartment

This is a converted farm which has been beautifully restored by the current owners Fiore, Marzia and Alice. Each room has been individually decorated and there are also two independent villas. It is a very peaceful and quiet setting with very well maintained grounds and a stunning swimming pool.


The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. There is a very large garden/grounds with fruit trees and a vegetable patch where you can help yourself to fruit and vegetables. There is a stunning swimming pool and barbecues to use when you want. Both independent villas have their own private gardens.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The villa was beautifully designed and thought through. It is very rustic and traditionally 'Italian' but with everything necessary to make your stay very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, plenty of space inside and out. Everything is extremely clean with regular towel, sheet changes.


Beautiful, spacious bedrooms with very comfortable beds. All bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms which were very well equipped and clean.


Perfectly equipped kitchen which was a joy to cook in. Plenty of pots, pans and utensils to make cooking full meals no problem.

Problems or Bonuses

This place is a real gem. We'd recommend it to anyone. A real must if you are staying in Tuscany.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We booked direct with the owners and received great service.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

This place is a real gem. This is the fourth time we have stayed here as a family and would happily return again. It is perfectly situated for visiting the beautiful towns around the Montepulciano region. The owners go out of their way to make you feel very welcome and no request is too much trouble. The accommodation, grounds and the pool are all stunning. I would recommend this place to anyone and already have! If you don't stay here, then you are really missing something special.

Things to do in this area

Favourite restaurant and something not to be missed - Piccola Trattoria Guastini - only five minutes drive and simply divine.

Wine tour - Avignonesi, amazing!
