Review 5613: Le Manzinaie, Apartment


Review by Trevor from Canada

apartments on an estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


May 2013


The magic starts at the cast iron gates. The gates swing open in response to a buzzer system and the long drive to the main farmhouse is lined with stately cedars. The farmhouse has trestles of beautiful roses and the building is flanked by a converted shed on one side and another converted shed and garage on the other. The grounds are immaculately groomed and the centerpiece is a large swimming pool surrounded by lovely tables and chairs. On both sides of the house are little grottoes with tables and chairs centered by an outdoor fireplace/barbecue.

Our hosts, Mariza, Fiore, their daughter Alice and dog Rufus greeted us and took us to our rooms. Along with my cousin and his wife, we shared a large kitchen and dining area and on either side were the bedrooms. Mariza’s beautiful artwork was featured prominently throughout. The attention to detail was extraordinary.

Our second evening, our hosts treated us to a lovely dinner featuring great food, great conversation and great wine.

We were very impressed with the hospitality and helpfulness we received. Directions to places we planned to visit were provided and dinner reservations were made on our behalf.

Our experience was wonderful - we would return in a heartbeat!
