Interaction with Guests
live next to the apartment. Normally I would personally hand over the keys to the guests, I show the apartment and I give the information about the apartment, what to visit and restaurants in our area.
If guests are in need of more information, I generally have at home or at least I am reachable by phone or e-mail.
Our home is on the outskirts of a small village, between Montepulciano and Cortona. In the area there are many food and wine trails and wine cellars, Thermal Baths and Spa.
The manifestations are many: the art intermnazionale Shipyard (July-August), the Bruscello (August), chalices under the stars (July-August), open cellars. the bravio barrels (August), wine festivals and chestnuts (September October), and many other festivals and cultural activities.
If you want to learn Italian, Montepulciano, is a prestigious school, italian language school Il Sasso.
Public transportation is here, but I recommend having a car. In this region it is also very easy to hire one.
On foot you can reach an excellent restaurant, a small supermarket, a pharmacy, a bar, a bank.
In a few hours you can get to and from cultural cities such as Montepulciano, Pienza, Chiusi, Cortona, Val d'Orcia, and in one day you can visit Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto.
Other Things to Note
In Montepulciano is a great school of Italian language, "il Sasso": recommended!!!
We ask our guests to have respect for our home and our garden, the cleaning costs are included in the regular price, but if the apartment needs a special cleaning or items provided are broken, we wish that the Our clients notify us.
we would like to be notified about the time of arrival to hand over the keys and check with them the apartment. at the start we check the state of the apartment with our guests. Upon arrival we ask for identity documents.
This is truly one of the BEST Apartment we have stayed. Our Hostess was warm and welcoming, the apartment was just as it was pictured only better and it was clean. We had two bedrooms and two baths four our group of four. The kitchen was equiped with dishes, pots and pans and even a bottle of wine produced by her father. The comfortable beds were covered with fine sheets and extra warm comforters. Recommendation for dinner was excellent and within walking distance. There is a store, cafe and a market on Tuesday. We hated to leave. Thank you Roberta for making this such a special weekend for all of us.
Nous avons passés un magnifique séjour chez Roberta. L'appartement est magnifique, très propre et très confortable pour quatre personnes. Notre hôte était très disponible et super accueillante. Bien situé avec une magnifique vue sur la toscane.
Excellent conditions and beautiful surroundings. Roberta is a most gracious host and her house confortable and tastefully decorated. Our children enjoyed the stay as much as we did. Grazie!
A fantastic experience! The house is very clean, comfortable and as advertised. The house is clearly newly renovated and modern, without loosing it's countryside Tuscan charm. Roberta is a friendly and welcoming host who was attentive to our needs. I only have positive things to say and can wholeheartedly recommend staying here!
The place is beautiful, comfortable and exactly as described and the location is great. Roberta is a vivacious and gracious host. All would be perfect but .. we have stayed 12 nights but the disposable supplies such as toilet paper and garbage bags are for the beginning of stay only and change of sheets and such is an additional 10Euro per person. Needless to say, you have to make your beds and clean the place (unless you'd like to have a cleaning lady at extra charge). Maybe , that's what the AIRBNB is all about... No toiletries, you have to provide your own.
So, all in all a 4+ or a 5- would be my grade.
Thanks to Rachel for this review. This review gives me a chance to make some clarifications, refinements that can help my future guests. Rachel had expectations that she did not find, I can understand Rachel, because it is nice to have expectations and do not find these situations. So I can describe what expectations the future guests will have: I offer an apartment exactly as described in the photos, very clean, with beds already prepared when guests arrive with clean towels and changed once a week, with linen provided every 2 weeks or on request with additional charge. In the apartment, at the arrival, guests find toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap, detergents to clean the house, coffee, tea, salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, wine, etc. ..... but these things are to begin the holiday period, then the guests can buy consumer products at the supermarket, we do not provide shower gel or soap or other toiletries. We rent a private apartment, we are not a B&B or a Hotel, we do not make the beds and we do not we clean the house during your stay, we do not do the shopping during your stay. But.... we live next to the apartment and we are always very happy to give the salt, if it is finished, or toilet paper if the guests have forgotten to buy this. Thank you again, to Rachel, for this opportunity to make that clear, Roberta.
What a beautiful apartment! I have traveled through Europe for many years and have never stayed in a place that is as pleasant as Roberta's apartment. The view from the master bedroom and outside walkway is fantastic, the design of the house is modern with components displaying some of the older architecture, and the appliances are new and up to date.
I traveled with my wife and two young sons and we found the place perfectly suitable for us four. There are enough bed for six people but two of the beds are fold out couches.
The town is very convenient to many of the charming Tuscan towns nearby. Montepulciano is only a few minutes away, and it is an amazing place to visit.
Roberta was an excellent host and we were able to communicate effectively. She lives an apartment about ten meters away and was very helpful whenever we needed anything.
I will certainly stay here again when I want to visit the Tuscan region. I cannot say enough nice things about this place, it is really great.

Ciao! sono Roberta.
Vivo con la mia famiglia, nella casa che abbiamo ristrutturato con passione e che, in parte, ho dedicato ad ospitare viaggiatori di tutto il mondo, interessati a visitare la nostra stupenda regione.
Sono insegnate di italiano presso 'il Sasso' italian Language school a Montepulciano, e nel pomeriggio mi dedico a mio figlio, al mio giardino e ai miei ospiti. Voglio che i nostri ospiti si sentano in vacanza.... ma come a casa loro.
