A Nice place but the Price was ind the High end compared to other places. A Nice big pool Outside Grill place Ask for appartment 5 or 6 with a covered terrace Near cities Like Pisa and Firenze, whereabouts you Can go shopping.
A perfect place to abandon any stress and chaos of everyday life! The elegant rooms are designed in a tipical tuscan style and have all the necessary facilities (everything is clean and tidy). The atmosphere is relaxing, the air is so fresh - you can smell the pine-trees in the air! I strongly recommend this place for those who want to spend some time in peace and harmony!
We stayed at Montignana in July and it was a delightful experience. Fantastic location in the heart of Tuscany and within easy reach of both Florence and Sienna.. The pool was lovely and the family had a great time. Hope to come back next year
We were here two years ago and returned for a week on our travels this year. We enjoy the peace and quite of the country side for awhile to really relax and come down from all the stress of travel and tourists. The rooms are well laid out but basic. The only improvement they could make would be the beds. Checking in and out of this place is no hassle and easy. The area around the building is great for walks around the vine yards and exploring the country side and local villages. We will be back next time we travel Italy.
We stayed in adjoining apartments with friends and although the location is beautiful, rather than coming away feeling rested, we left exhausted. The accommodation generally itself if too simple in my opinion for the cost. Our dishwasher did not work all week, there is not any air conditioning and the BBq area is by the bins so we did not want to use it (and with no oven in the kitchen, this limited our cooking options). Our key problem though was the noise from the apartments above. We expected some sort of noise living in close vicinity of other people but there is simply no soundproofing at all. This means that you hear everything that happens above. We were woken up most nights by the people above going to the toilet (not just the flush!) and then again by 7am at the latest when they got up. You can hear conversations, furniture moving and doors opening as if they are in your apartment. On our final morning I was woken up at 5am by people packing and I could hear the zipping and unzipping of cases followed by the cleaning of this all the apartments at 7am with the cleaners making so much noise in carrying items up the back steps which echoed around our apartment. We did complain half way through the week but the response has been extremely poor. We have asked to speak to the owner but the Manager is just not following our request of this. Very disappointed in their treatment of us as a customer and have left feeling that they do not care what our opinions are or what our stay was like.
As the reviewer below wrote the noise here from apartments above is unacceptable Whether its 5am, 6am or midnight or later you will be disturbed by the noise from other apartments as when this house was converted the ceilings were not sound proofed and noise on tile floors travelled Management are never wrong, don't want to know and are in denial On the morning of departure, even thought they were aware of our lack of sleep and poor experiences they cleaned the apartment above us before 7am making as much noise as possible They don't care, just take your money and its not their problem shame as the pool and area is nice, just stay elsewhere, as for over 200Euros per night there is much better and you can sleep
We are currently staying here for a week. The setting is nice as is the pool , however the apartments have not had their ceilings sound proofed, so as a reviewer below mentions you can hear the people above you constantly. Whether it is 1245am as last night when they put the dishwasher on before gong to bed, or 7 am in the morning when they are urinating in their toilet.Every footstep or noise is as though they are in the room with you This means in 6 nights we have not slept more than 7 hours , very frustrating As another reviewer points out the reaction of the management is disbelief as though you are lying and as of yet we have not had answers Our colleagues have not had a dishwasher for the whole stay that works and rather than say sorry there won't be a dishwasher for a week they just keep saying we are waiting for a technician For the money you would expect at least sound proofed ceilings and also a portable barbecue per apartment rather than one communal barbecue by some bins So if you value rest on a holiday it's not for you
My wife and I stayed recently a year after our wedding for a long promissed honeymoon to Tuscany. We travelled all over and saw all the dutyful tourist spots with all their crowds. For our last week we stayed at this place and let me say that after all the crowds this place was wonderful and pieceful. After busy days in Floerence and tired feet it was so nice to just sit and relax in the pool and see the amazing surrounding. We would often sneak thru the fence and walk for hours in the vine yards. If I had one small complaint it would be that the two single beds pushed together was an issue for us on our arrival. We spoke to thge management and this was quickly remedied the following day by moving us to another apartment with a double queen size bed.
We booked to stay there in 2006 and again in 2009 and the second time we could not wait to arrive again. The views are fantastic. Lets be real... you are in the country, so mosquitoes will be there also and they love my sweet blood I guess. After the first time I learned to come prepared for "Mosquito Battle" and I won.. mostly. If you drink the Coli wine you won't notice the bites anyway. The apartments are classic Tuscan country style with everything you need for comfort. The only time we really spend there was to sleep, as the local area of Florence to Sienna with all in between demands a lot of attention. We had no problems for the two times we stayed there and the staff have always been very helpful and friendly. On most Monday evenings try and go the the Pratale apartments, owned by the same family and join them in an "apperitivo" feast where you get to meet all the other guests and family. We will definitely be back again...
I've had the joy of greatly enjoying holidays in Tuscany for the past 15 years...and the hotel that I have gone back to time and again is the magnificent Fattoria Montignana. This villa, whose history goes back to the 11th century, is in between Florence and Siena in the heart of the incomparable Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. Not only are the rooms truly decorated as if you have been drawn back to the Renissance, but the grounds, surrounded by vineyards that make some of the best vino in Italy, are magnificent. And the sunsets...! Picture hillsides the color of smoky blue shadows, lined with rows of grape vines...with old stone glowing golden from the setting sun. See the sky turn from soft pale peach, to deep orange. Smell the wild rosemary perfuming everywhere...and you have arrived at Fattoria Montignana. Ciao...Don from Marina del Rey, CA USA
