Waking up in the middle of the wineyards was priceless. This is a working wineyard so you do hear the humming of tractors early in the morning, but it is part of the experience. The house is beautiful, didn't need AC despite outside temperature above 30C, and the terrace has amazing views. Many great meals took place there, we cooked beautiful food from the market in Montalcino, a city spared of the curse of mass tourism ( unlike San Giminano, more crowded than London's Oxford Street). Camigliano next door is a gem of a village, and we were lucky to be invited to a party there - people are friendly and the little Osteria has good food and a hearty welcome. We loved our stay, could not recommend more!

And, Aly the friendly farm dog watched for us constantly. Very convenient for day trips and wonderful for relaxing. I am in love with Montalcino. XXXXX
