Overview

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.

Beautiful and Reasonably Priced Accomodation

  • 5 of 5
We have been travelling to Tuscany for many years for the month of May and occaisionally also in the autumn. We found Le Maribelle on the internet and only hoped it would be like the photos. We were very pleased to find that the photos do not do it justice. The apartment is beautifully located in a tiny medieval town with views over the surrounding countryside. The kitchen is large and well equiped, the bed large and comfortable, the bath is modern and charming and, it has a sizeable private terrace for dining, reading, or just 'being.' It is very clean and well maintained. This apartment has afforded us the opportunity to 'live' in Tuscany for a month each year, to take full advantage of the wonderful town markets and the foodstuff available in them, and to visit the many hilltowns in the region. The Val d'Orcia is Tuscany at its most beautiful and most pure. The owners are friendly and accomodating, knowledgeable of the tourist offerings nearby, and can arrange wine tours as well as recommend restaurants. The town itself has a small alimentari, two exceptional trattorie, a few shops, an interesting history, and friendly residents. It is close to the famous spa town of Bagno Vignoni, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, Siena, and an hour from Florence. The area is great for long walks and hikes.
