Pienza Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 & 2 bedrooms, 1 & 2 bathrooms, sleeps 3 and 4

One ground-floor and one first-floor apartment in a 13th century house converted with the maximum attention to comfort and in excellent taste while preserving all the original features including beamed ceilings, stonework and terracotta floors. Warm and cosy in winter and delightfully cool in summer owing to thick walls and a hilly position, these apartments, in the truly unique little village of Monticchiello, are the ideal base all the year round for discovering this wonderful corner of Tuscany, rich in artistic treasures and set in some of the most beautiful and unspoilt countryside in Italy, within the protected area of the Val d'Orcia National Park.

The village and its facilities: Monticchiello has 2 restaurants, 2 cafés and 2 general stores. There is also a post-office and a cash dispenser. Ideal for those with young children as there is hardly any traffic at all, picturesque strolls can be enjoyed in its little squares and gardens, as well as scenic walks around the walls and up to the tower at the top of the village.

Every summer between July and August the famous 'Teatro Povero di Monticchiello' stages a locally produced open-air drama every night for a month in the village square, and supper can be eaten in the crypt of the village church (turned into a taverna for the occasion). Booking is advisable as this event is very popular!

For those visiting in winter there are chamber music concerts through the Christmas season in the ancient granary.

Nearby places to visit: Only 3 kms away is Pienza,jewel of the Renaissance, and also within easy distance are San Quirico with its beautiful Romanesque collegiate church, Montepulciano and Montalcino with their world famous wines, Bagno Vignoni with its hot springs and ancient Roman bath....and many other little-known historical spots. Siena, Florence and Perugia are all about an hour's drive away, and there is an excellent train service to Rome, or as a change, you can take a boat trip to the islands on Lake Trasimeno (40 mins away).

Other activities: Whether you are an enthusiastic hiker or just wish to explore the countryside on foot, there are numerous beautiful walks in the area. In summer, there are several pleasant open-air swimming-pools all about 20 mins drive away, and it is possible to spend a day at the beach - a longer drive (60 mins) but worth it. The owners will provide information on open-air summer concerts and various traditional local events. Last but not least, good food and wine abound in this region and there are restaurants, trattorias and wine-bars to suit everyone.

It was va very nice appart, very quite; the small town is beautiful; we come for the second time; there is a lot of things to do or to see in south toscana. the only little problem is for the car (no parking near the house, since a few year).
thanks to Barbara.

A WONDERFULLY RELAXING SOJOURN

  • 5 of 5
With only 90 inhabitants living within the walls of this delightful, truly medieval village, and with two good restaurants within about 50 meters of the apartment, this is just a great place for a 3, 4 or 5 night stay to calm down from the hotel jumping that ensues from touring. The apartment was more than adequate, the large bed was quite comfortable (the smaller bed less so for an adult couple) and the restaurants obviate any need to leave Monticchiello in the evening in search of dinner. Or, if you want, visit Montepulciano, Pienza or Chianciano during the day for a stroll in a wine-besotted Tuscan town and easily shop for more than you will need to make yourself a great picnic, or even a hot, dinner in the apartment's kitchen.
In the spirit of full disclosure, the hilly city just might be a little much for
people who have difficulty walking. For the rest, it is simply a pleasant little workout to circumnavigate the village.
Barbara, the owner of the apartment, is a great resource and as open and friendly as you could possibly want. She loves talking and learning about her guests. It is a place you will likely want to return to.

Ormai abbiamo provato le tre Maribelle, 1 l'anno scorso in aprile, 3 in agosto 2009 e 2 quest'estate, ed é stato ogni volta un vero piacere. Questo sentimento di vivere nel cuore di un paesello toscano perfetto nel quale la gente malgrado il turismo é rimasta molto accogliente e simpatica, é per noi la garanzia di un soggiorno stupendo.
Barbara é un ospite molto attenta e di certo torneremo in questo posto

ELISABETH AND JESPER - DENMARK

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting Tuscany since 2007 for holiday travel, and during these trips we have come across a nice little town in southern Tuscany, by the name of Montichello, where we found some lovely holiday apartments for rent.
We quickly settled in there and quite enjoyed the calm, relaxed and cozy mood.
The town has a limited touristy feel, but at the same time folklore with a couple of nice restaurants, a café and the towns own medieval castle. Furthermore there is a hike around the town with an extraordinary view to the very picturesque Val D’orcia valley. Le Maribelle 1 and 2 is both nice apartments perfectly situated with a balcony view to the city of Pienza, one of the key areas in the very beautiful valley.
The town of Monte Pulciano is also within a fifteen minute drive, as well beautifully situated on a mountain plateau. We have on several occasions lived in both apartments, which exudes atmosphere and are tastefully decorated with only the basic necessities.
The Italian urban environment has also been enjoyed by the family dog, which was a great success.
We are looking forward to living at Maribelle 2 and to the hosts most kind hospitality again already this August and we are looking very much forward to yet another holiday in very special surroundings.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT IN BEAUTIFUL TUSCAN VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
We have had three very happy holidays at Le Maribelle, and have stayed in both apartments. They are each comfortable, well-equipped and tastefully-restored holiday apartments which make an ideal base for exploring this part of Tuscany. The apartments are in a very peaceful location, set on a small piazza in the stunning medieval village of Montichello. The apartments are simply but comfortably furnished. The upstairs one is bigger; the downstairs one is more compact, but perfect for a couple, and has an attractive terrace which opens out from the bedroom with lovely views over open countryside towards the neighbouring village of Pienza - the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink or a lazy afternoon. The village of Monticchiello is beautiful: it is small, quiet and hugely atmospheric, and combines away-from-it-all peacefulness with the convenience of having amenities nearby. In particular, there is an excellent restaurant, La Porta, a couple of minutes' walk from the apartment, which we have eaten in several times and recommend very highly. Monticchiello is within easy striking distance of many places of interest, and there is plenty to see and do without having to drive too far. Overall, we rate Le Maribelle very highly indeed: it is a lovely apartment, with a helpful and friendly owner, set in a magical village. We hope to return again in the not too distant future.

LE MARIBELLE 2

  • 5 of 5
The perfection of this little house is matched only by the generosity and personality of Barbara, the owner. For those who prefer peace, quiet, and unsurpassed beauty, Monticchiello is the answer. There are two restaurants in town but I can't get myself to go anywhere but La Porta. Daria and her staff are amazing. The food is beyond description, you have to taste the saffron risotto to understand just how good it is. Depending on the time of year you visit, you may have to park in the local parking lot and walk up a small hill to the house. This should be considered before booking but if walking is not an issue, you will be missing a wonderful experience if you bypass Le Maribelle.
