The wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Montemolino. The apartment we stayed in was not just a place to sleep but also a place where we spend nice time. Restored details of rooms (solid wooden doors, shutters and furniture-no trash) command respect. The surrounding countryside is indeed dreamlike. The hospitality of the host is unusual. He showed us typical places of purchases of various articles - including the place of purchase regional wines :). He was always willing to help us.

Owner's Response: .I thank you my guests for their kind answer appraisal of the quality of the apartment, the beautifulness of the countryside,the excellence of food and wines of the region. By spending two weeks in Montemolino they had enough time to appreciate all that as a restoring holiday to be proposed to their best friends. Other apartments in the same castle will be proposed for rent in a few weeks
