Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Podere Ampella. La villa est charmante et a répondu à toutes nos attentes. Elle est en outre idéalement située pour admirer les coucher de soleil. Nous avons également beaucoup apprécié la disponibilité de Paola. Nous recommandons!
Local attractions Boccon di Vino à Montalcino. La vue est exceptionnelle et les plats originaux et soignés. Ristorante dal Falco à Pienza pour la saveur des plats.
