The apartment is large, comfortable and pretty, and has pleasant views over the gardens, olive groves and stunning landscape. The owner and staff were very happy to help organise itineraries and book restaurants etc. One of them even cooked for us a couple of nights and it was a great way to sample the local cuisine. Overall it is a really nice way to experience a wonderful part of Italy.

And the house- just wow. It's cozy with lots of modern updates, yet keeping with its old fashioned charm. The bedrooms for the most part are separated so it gives everyone some privacy. The family room furniture is so comfy and it was a great place to relax. We actually didn't cook much- our group likes to go out to eat- but the kitchen is completely equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house was spotless, the decks were so nice to relax on, and honestly it was hard to leave on our last day. Highly recommend. And Bea and her team are so nice, great communication, and truly care that people enjoy their stay. This house is two thumbs up from our group for sure. See you again soon :)

The house is situated on top of the hill with stunning view on the Tuscan landscape. The house is surrounded with several terraces and offers a lot of intimacy. It is fully equipped. The pool is shared with the owner but it was comfortable for us anyway. Mr. Giovanni was a great host, welcomed us warmly upon our arrival and shared valuable tips for grocery shopping, restaurants, day trips to villages surrounding Montepescali and beaches. For us it was a great, tranquil vacation we would gladly repeat. I personally highly recommend to anyone. Thanks Giovanni for a great holiday at his property.
