We had a great stay. The place was exactly as we expected.
An excellent stay overall.
Paolo, Laura and Victor made us feel most welcome and made our stay wonderful. All small things and issues were fixed straightaway! Thank you for a lovely time.
Two of its best attributes......scenery and location
The compound of approximately a dozen separate casas is well maintained. It is located on a high point approximately 2 km north of San Giovanni d'Asso on the road to Montisi. At least six hilltop towns are visible from the location all within an hour's drive. The property is surrounded by beautiful rolling Tuscan hills. My wife and I like space so we rented a casa with two bedrooms and a bath upstairs and a living area and kitchen/dining area and bath downstairs. We had a private patio and yard. The accommodations met our expectations....very comfortable but not extraordinary. The property has a swimming pool for guests that looked very inviting, but it was too cool for anyone to enjoy this time of the year. Grocery stores and ristorantes with good food and value are close by. I would recommend this property to my closest friends if they wanted to enjoy and see this part of Tuscany at any time of the year.
Yes, It Is As Amazing as It Looks!
We had a delightful stay in this well-kept modern villa in the middle of the unbelievably beautiful Tuscan countryside. We would love to be able to vacation here annually❣️
Our stay at Podere Ampella was perfect. The residence was clean and the grounds were well maintained. The view from the pool was the quintessential Tuscan view and a great way to end a day of sightseeing.
Could live here forever
My husband and I stayed in Villa Montisi at Podere Ampella for 10 days May 2018. We completely fell in love with the house. It was private, quiet and comfortable with no convenience missing. The fridge was running, the gas stove was ready for cooking, and the pool was just opened and inviting for us when we wanted it. The bed was comfortable and the pillows and linens were crisp and clean. All was wonderful and we felt right at home. There are so many things to do in the area. The poppies were blooming everywhere! The little flock of sheep across the road always made for great pictures with the long row of cypresses along the driveway in the backdrop. The best views were always in the late afternoon when the sun started to make longer shadows over the land. We had dinner out one night in Cortona at Osteria del Teatro-highly recommend, we bathed in the Rapalano Terme late one Friday night under the half moon outside....it was all so romantic. We went to various wineries and toured and tasted what this area has to offer. If you like quiet star filled nights, spectacular sunsets, relaxing swimming pools, and the freedom that having your own home away from home gives your vacation spot....then this is it. Cannot say enough about the service from Paola, who we didn't need to contact, and who checked in twice during our stay to see all was well to the privacy and natural beauty all around! We would come again in a heartbeat. 5 out of 5!
thank you so much for this review . We are all so happy that you had a great holiday As this is most important for our busy lives .
It was a pleasure to have you staying and thank you so much for looking after the villa so well.
I wish you all the best for the near future . Paola
