Absolutely stunning home + great location. Michele was extremely helpful when it came to restaurants and places to visit. We loved our one week stay at their villa. Also do rent an electric Bianchi from the Bike rent shop in Montalicino. Incredible way to see the area.

The Villa is exactly as in the pictures. Very rustic and Tuscany style, with everything you need. Location is great. Simona and Michele are great hosts and helped us with everything we needed, including the rental of a wheelchair, reservations and calling a mechanic to recharge our car battery. Thanks for everything. Abraços Victor and family

I would say that this is one of the most stunning places I have ever stayed and exceeded all my expectations. Communication was prompt and friendly with every effort being made by Michele to make us feel comfortable and taken care of. The property manager, Fosco, was on hand to bring us charcoal, lightbulbs, and anything else that we ran out of or couldn't find. The house itself was beautiful and imbued with what I can only describe as a warm feeling of being lived in and well loved over the years. The bedrooms were comfortable and charming with windows framed by cascading vines and views onto the grounds. I had many a bath in my perfect clawfoot tub. We used the fantastically stocked kitchen many nights to make dinner and sat together for hours at our candlelit table, eating, drinking copious amounts of wine, laughing, and playing cards. During the day, we explored all the little towns and ate at delicious restaurants, suggested by Michele. To relax, we read by the pool and swung in the hammock soaking up the Tuscan sun. My friends and I had a wonderful and memorable experience and I would recommend this villa to anyone. Thank you Michele and Simone for making my birthday the best I've ever had.

We have been really happy to host Tannis and her friends in our villa in Pian dell'Asso Montalcino. I suppose they really enjoied and felt the real "Tuscany way of life": relax, food, good wine, art, history and much more......! They are perfect guests, and really nice people. I'm sure that the "soul" of the villa was perfectly tuned with Tannis mood....! We hope to see you all again! Simona Michele and Fosco

Dear Simona & Michele, it was a pleasure to know you and we had a truly wonderful week at the house. It is a magical house with a true soul. We really enjoyed the gardens and the fabulous pool with our babies ! The house has all amenities we could expect and indeed a fantastic kitchen. The property is ideally located between Montalcino and San Quirico d'Orcia (5 min). The sunset from the pool drawing the Montalcino skyline is to be experienced! Hope to visit you again very soon. Thank you ! Julien, family Goupit and Lefevre

Our stay at Simona and Michele`s Villa was perfect for our family of 5 adults and 2 children was great. They were spectacularly welcoming from the beginning. We loved the interior from the pictures and the real thing is even better. Because the villa gets great use and has great air flow with windows on each side, their was no mold or stale air that you may get with some older properties. Everyone in our group slept wonderfully (besides the kids, which was the jetlag not the property). With more than ample space and a beautiful outdoor recreation area there was plenty to fall in love with, but the three cooks in our group were in love with the Kitchen... The less culinary amongst us enjoyed hanging int he back yard (where there was a bbq, if we felt we needed to help with the cooking duties). There were hammocks on the property for the necessary post lunch naps and an amazing eco-pool with a great, kid-friendly designed pool. The half field soccer pitch was overkill (in a good way). The gardener Fosco takes amazing care of the grounds with beautiful landscaping and there is even fresh sage and basil steps from the kitchen. Most importantly the location of the property is phenomenal. Within 15 minutes of more than 3 lovely mid-evil towns with great restaurants, you have Tuscany at your door-step. Simona and Michele have great restaurant recommendations and connections that will keep you well satiated the entire time. Brunello di Montalcino is the rage now, with the Wine Spectator going crazy for the 2010 vintage which is just hitting the streets of Montalcino (10mins away). We saw multiple copies of the magazine in people`s hands so the location will only get more attractive. Finally, we had a major issue and thanks to Simona and Michele, we were just fine. One of our children was just 5 months and we ran out of formula when the majority of shops were closed on a Sunday. Michele dropped everything to help us try to find the only open pharmacy amongst those 5 close towns at dinner time on a Sunday night, so that our daughter would be able to eat in the morning. Thanks to our great hosts and we would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a private, secluded, rustic villa experience in a great area in Tuscany (Montalcino, where could be better for wine lovers).
