“Lovely Tuscan escape”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2017

Wonderful location and wonderful apartment. John, the owner, was extremely attentive and helpful. We wished we had longer here.

Response from the owner Thanks for the review. Our guests always wish they had longer at our apartment. It is hard for me to say beforehand you should give less time to Rome, or Florence, over humble Montefollonico but inevitably they wish they had more time for the Tuscan hill towns. I think a second trip is called for. :)
