Maria cooked a lovely breakfast
It is within walking distance of the town of Monticchiello and very close to Pienza and Montepulcia
Maria and Guido are the most lovely hosts. We were a group of 6 attending a wedding near by, and they were so accommodating and went out of their way to make us comfortable. They served a beautiful breakfast every morning and even gave us an extra helping when we were hungry.
All the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Everything is extremely clean and neat.
Note that there is no access to the kitchen, however as we occupied all 4 rooms in the house Guido was kind enough to allow us to use the fridge during our stay. We really appreciated that.
There is WiFi at the house, but we found it difficult to connect sometimes.
If you're driving, the house is in Monticchiello town, which itself is one of the prettiest Tuscan villages that I've been to. There are some great restaurants too.
Maria Gabriella was welcoming and friendly. Although her English was minimal she still did our best to make us feel at home. The place is lovely with a comfy bed and wonderful Air conditioning. In addition, her backyard is beautiful and breakfast was very good! Thank you again!
Great location and nice room ! House keeping can be improved!
Great place to stay in Monticchiello! Guido was helpful for us when we got lost (darn google maps) and extremely accommodating and very kind! Beautiful room, lovely gardens we could enjoy, and Guido and his aunt provided a hearty breakfast which was wonderful. Highly recommend!
We had an amazing experience staying in Monticchiello at Affittacamere Maria Gabriella. We stayed in a lovely renovated cottage behind the large house, which was very cozy and comfortable. Our hosts were very kind and welcoming, and made us a fantastic breakfast before we left. From their lovely backyard, we were able to watch the sunset over the beautiful fields of Monticchiello. The town itself was such a fantastic surprise - an enchanting, tiny village to wander around in. Be sure to make a reservation at La Porta for dinner - this was one of our favorite spots.

About the Host, Affittacamere Maria Gabriella
Sono toscana di adozione. Mi sono innamorata di questa terra 40 anni fa. Si è trattato di amore a prima vista e come non innamorarsi di questa terra meravigliosa piena di arte e circondata da una natura mozzafiato per non parlare del buon cibo. La mia casa è sempre stata aperta agli ospiti che amo curare nel minimo dettaglio. Non esitate a chiedermi informazioni su questi luoghi ed assistenza in un viaggio anche enogastronomico.
