We had our three small children in tow and they were accommodated for and loved the pool and large garden to run around in. The location is stunning and James and Penny deliver an amazingly high standard of service. The welcome hamper on arrival is more like a fully stocked fridge and store cupboard! The free wine every day is a treat and the finishes in the villa are all to a ridiculously high standard - Emma Bridgewater crockery! The housekeeper is on hand daily and there was nothing we wanted for. We love Montecchio and the surrounding area. The local towns are lovely and I could not recommend a week here more highly! Already recommended to friends and I have no doubt we will be back again.

We have stayed at other villas in Italy and Europe but never for four weeks. It is a beautiful sitting; the villa is beautiful and spotless; it has a massive pool which is cleaned frequently; the villa kitchen is equipped with everything you need; the town of Castelnuovo Berardenga is five minutes away with a lovely old town, restaurants, gym, grocery store, butcher, wineries, and lovely welcoming people. Even closer there are two small beautiful old villages (Villa a Sesta and San Gusme) with a number of wonderful restaurants and all the charm of Tuscany. What sets Club Montecchio apart, however, more than the endless wine, olive oil etc, is the concierge service and particularly the host James. There are so many day trips to towns, sites, wineries one could take how does one decide: email James and Rita. James will tell you which chef to hire, which winery to see, which restaurant to go to and Rita will make the reservations. We went to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Cortona, Montelupo, Gubbio, Colle di Valle d'Elsa, Siena and so many other great towns all from our lovely home base with advise an email away. Rita and James even arranged for a fantastic Palio experience in Sienna. The concierge service saved us time, money and the stress of stumbling for the answers ourselves...invaluable! If you have the opportunity to visit Club Mintecchio do it!

This was for us the ideal holiday location away from the madding crowds, nestled in the Tuscan hills, with amazing views from the private loggia which makes this apartment really unique. The apartment itself has everything you need, is comfortable and spacious and of course perfectly clean. Take a walk through the vineyards up the hill to the nearby hilltown of San Gusme, a jewel of a Tuscan village, or downhill through the olive groves. The nearby town of Castelnuevo has everything you need in terms of good food, basics, restaurants and cute cafes (and an amazing gelateria where you can even buy take out ice cream!). What more could you want?!
