Review 5578: Le Manzinaie, Le Viole


Review by ninon s from US

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


june 7 - 15 2013, 1 week


The location was perfect. It allowed us to travel around to all the places we wanted: Cortona, Siena, San Gimignano etc. It is in the region of Montepulciano and close to many wineries and very good restaurants. It is very private and well kept. Driveway lined by beautiful cypress trees. Lots of flowers and even a garden.

Nearby Amenities

You could probably walk to certain places but we had a car and you can reserve a driver. Restaurants and stores are within 15-20 minutes.

The House/Apartment

We stayed in a small two story villa called Viole. There was a small kitchen and sitting area with a bedroom with full bathroom with jacuzzi tub on the first floor and one bedroom on the second floor with full bathroom with shower.

We had a private gazebo with table and chairs surrounded with flowers. There was a beautiful pool that was for other guests too staying in the guestrooms of the main building.

The villa was spotless and decorated with art from Marzia the owner! Beautiful.


See above.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The furniture was in good shape and comfortable. The villa was clean and with enough seating for guests.


The beds were very comfortable and bathrooms very big and in good condition.


The kitchen was well equipped with good and sufficient dishes. We only used it for breakfast and lunch ... too many good restaurants. The owners cooked a meal for all the guests one night. It was a great meal with great local wine!

Problems or Bonuses

All the surprises were great ... a little cappuccino once in a while ... a cocktail in the afternoon ... Just perfect!

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We were treated first class by the owners: Fiore, Marzia and their amazing daughter who speaks perfect English and even Japanese ... they also spoke English.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I hope I have the chance to stay there again soon. Just love that place and I would recommend it to all my friends ... important too is that they have good air conditioning and screens in the windows.
