Great property with great owners. We were looking for a centralized place that we could take day trips to the surrounding Tuscan Village’s. This was right what we wanted. Even the pool has an incredible view. I thought it was a separate structure on the property but it’s all one big place. Really not a problem though because we only saw the owners a couple of times. One night we sat by the pool in the dark and saw 5 shooting stars in about 20 minutes. You really can’t beat the views.
Heaven on Earth
Heaven on earth – Agritursmo Collosodo is absolutely heaven on earth. Perched above the village of Montechiello, overlooking one of the most photographed, Cyprus-lined, twisting roads in Tuscany, this lovely farmhouse is taken care of by Elena and Fabio; who also took wonderful care of my husband, 13-year-old son and me during our four-night stay.
We were welcomed with coffee-cake for our first morning which we ate in Elena’s beautiful garden surrounding the house which had been her grandmother’s. The next afternoon we were met with fresh-picked cherries from Elena’s sister’s garden. We enjoyed the cherries pool-side as the heat had climbed in Tuscany to unusual temps. We traveled out in the mornings to Cortona (45 minute drive) or Montepulciano (25 minute drive), got take-out pizza from a shop Fabio recommended or wine tasted at the nearby Pulciano winery and enjoyed the area’s famous Pecorino with a glass of wine once happily back at Collosodo.
After the heat of the day, a trip to Piensa for dinner was perfect but so was the dinner in Montechiello where we could look back up the hill and enjoy seeing where we’d been sitting only an hour earlier.
We loved our stay and only wish it could be longer. We will definitely be back and feel lucky to have found this Tuscan gem.
What a great place. Perfectly located in the heart of Tuscany. We spent three days exploring the hilltop towns and villages nearby and three evenings eating in some very good restaurants. The property itself is lovely with everything you need including a pool area to relax. Our hosts were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. You can tell that they want their guests to be comfortable and happy. They gave us restaurant recommendations that were spot on. We could not recommend highly enough and would gladly return to this beautiful part of the world.
Perfect Tuscany Experience!
We really enjoyed our stay at this place. The hosts were so friendly and helpful and we enjoyed getting to know them and learning about the property. The location was Perfect! We were able to easily drive to Chianti, Florence, Assisi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montecheillo, most within a 20-30 minute drive. If you want a true Italian farm house experience, with an amazing view, and easy accessibility, this is the place!
Thanks so much that you stayed at our house we were very happy to have met you! We have spoken very willingly with you, we wish you to be very happy together. I hope you will come back to visit one day too! Thanks again for the kind words you wrote, a greeting
This property is a very nice way to spend some time in Tuscany. It is well situated near several notable hill towns (Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni, and Siena to name a few), keeping in mind that "near" in Tuscany parlance (i.e. you can see your intended destination from where you are), might still mean a 30-40 min drive to get there (windy roads, some unpaved). You MUST have a car. The dwelling is a well maintained farm house. It is not a castle. It is however charming and cozy and rustic and reasonably well appointed. The hot water is hot. We opened the windows at night and slept like the dead. The hosts live in the attached house next door. We didn't require much from them as I had been to the area before, but they were charming and helpful when needed, and responded to my email queries prior to our stay very quickly. The property is typical of the area. Situated near the top of a hill, with a sweeping view of the surrounding countryside. The outdoor space is comfortable, and we made breakfast every morning (the kitchen could accommodate a more elaborate meal as well) and ate outside under some nice tall trees while watching the morning light envelop the surrounding hills. There are far worse ways to start your day. Remember to get provisions for cooking and snacking while you're out, as there are no 7-Elevens nearby and ordering delivery is not a thing. The Conad in Montepulciano is a large supermarket and there are several smaller COOP supermarkets in the area as well. The pool is quite nice and would serve a larger party well, but we didn't have much time to use it. There is a barbeque grill and charcoal available, but we just had some wine and cheese while sitting outdoors. I highly recommend that very simple and peaceful activity to remind you why you came to Tuscany in the first place. Overall, a very nice and pleasant place to stay.
Thank you so much for the nice review you wrote to us, we are glad to have met you and thank you that you have left us a house in perfect order, greetings
Im Herzen der Toskana
Wir hatten mit unseren 2 Kindern eine wunderschöne Woche hier in diesem alten Bauernhaus inmitten der schönsten Gegend Italiens. Den Hausteil den wir Mieten durften, ist als rustikal zu bezeichnen, alte Möbel und Bilder, alles sehr authentisch. Was zu erwähnen ist, der Hausteil befindet sich zur Strasse hin, es ist aber trotzdem sehr Ruhig, weil kaum Autos die Strasse befahren. Mann kann also Nachts getrost die Fenster offen lassen und geniesst dank den Fliegengittern die kühle Abendluft.
Vor der Küche hat es einen Tisch mit Stühlen, der leider nicht gerade zu kriegen ist, deshalb haben wir es Vorgezogen unser Essen zum Pool zu tragen und dort zu essen. Der Pool ist Spitzenlasse! Sehr gross, mit sauberem Süsswasser gefüllt und erstaunlicherweise blieb er die ganze Woche angenehm kühl und erfrischend. Unsere Kinder haben das sehr genossen!
Wie schon in anderen Rezessionen erwähnt, sind Elena und Fabio immer zur stelle wenn man Sie braucht (sie wohnen ja dort), aber es fühlt sich so an, als hätte man alles für sich alleine. Den Tipp für die Pizzeria Tre Stelle in Sant'Albino bekamen wir von Ihnen und wir haben sie zu unserem Favoriten gekürt.
Lebensmittel einkaufen kann man übrigens nur in Montepulciano gut, in Montichiello gibt's leider keine Möglichkeit, also etwa 20 min Fahrzeit einplanen.
Würden wir dieses Haus weiterempfehlen? Ja, auf jeden Fall!
Wir danken euch, Elena und Fabio für den schönen Aufenthalt, Mille Grazie!
Thanks for the nice words you wrote to us we were very happy to have met you, you are very nice people, thanks again for having stayed in our house with your children very polite, greetings to all of you Elena and Fabio
Monticchiello si trova a pochi chilometri di distanza dai maggiori storici dell'arte come Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Cortona, San Quirico, Radicofani, Chiusi, Sant 'Antimo, Monte Oliveto, Bagno Vignoni, ecc. È possibile fare passeggiate nella splendida Val d'Orcia, vedere verdi colline e cipressi in Toscana. Ma e 'necessario avere una macchina perche' la zona e 'molto bella ma purtroppo non collegata con la stazione di autobus e ferrovia e' quaranta minuti.
