Renting a holiday house, outside our home Country, would be a complete new experience for us, and we were a little bit concerned about that.
The result, on the other hand, was wonderful and we recommend that to anyone who is in doubt.
Besides the amazing house, which was located in a beautiful medieval Burgo with a fortified wall, on the top of an astonishing hill surrounded by fields of wine grapes, we received from our landlords the kindest hospitality.
Staying in Monteriggioni has exceeded all our expectations: Beautiful landscapes, exceptional wine and food, perfect location. We used our castle as central base to explore many of the fantastic cities surrounding us, under Tuscan skies. Siena, San Gimignano, Florença, Montepulciano, Montalcino and Lucca were some of the cities we had the pleasure to visit.
Our recommendations: when visiting Tuscany don´t miss the good fresh Pecorino cheese, the regional wine (all tastes and all wallets), the fantastic Bistecca Fiorentina ( pork steak ) and the fresh pasta.
The only thing we could not find were grapes for our little daughter. They taught us that ALL grapes are used for wine in Toscana !
