Review 5486: Le Manzinaie, Apartment


Review by Evie3810 from US

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


September 2012, 1 week


We just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy. The highlight was definitely our one week stay at Le Manzinaie during the last week of September. Our hosts, Marzia, Fiore, and Alice were so warm and friendly and helpful in every way! Regretfully, when we arrived, I was really sick. Fiore immediately stopped what he had been doing and took us to the emergency room where he stayed with us for the next four hours to be my interpreter and advocate for my care. I spoke no Italian ... we could not have handled this on our own! He saved our trip!

When we checked in they had the refrigerator stocked with the makings of breakfast for the following morning! They have a wonderful orchard full of plums, pears, apples, etc., where we picked fresh fruit every day, along with tomatoes from the garden. We had a wonderful dinner with our hosts and fellow guests ... what fun! We took many wonderful day trips, all with the aide of their wonderful printed directions on how to get there and get back home! It is a fabulous location! We will definitely be returning to Italy and know exactly where we will stay!
