What Past Guests Are Saying
Do not hesitate ... a fantastic Tuscan experience
Montestigliano was recommended to me by a friend, who said great things about her stay there in 2010. I looked at other sites in the general area, but nothing seemed better than her recommendation. I emailed the Manager, Francesco, who advised me on the best villa to meet the needs of my family (self, husband and 2 teenage daughters). He recommended Casa Massimo (there are numerous renovated cottages on the estate), and we were not disappointed. The villa had everything we needed for a very comfortable week's stay in the Tuscan countryside, and bucket-loads of charm as well. The whole estate is picture-book perfect. There are numerous walking trails, including one to the nearest village where good coffee can be had. 2 pools (one designated for families) operate in the warmer months.
We did not miss having a TV. Good WiFi kept us connected with the world (when we wanted to be).
The estate is a short drive from the nearest small town for essential supplies, and less than 30 minutes' drive from Siena - a magical place that we went back to a number of times over the week.
The opportunity to join other guests for a traditional Sienese dinner was fantastic. The estate's own olive oil is a wonderful product, which we made use of while we were there (and would have liked to take home, except our baggae limits wouldn't allow it!).
Highly recommend this estate - I doubt you will have a better experience, and staff will do everything they can to make your stay memorable. Thanks, Francesco, e a presto!
