The space

Casa Gigliola is a holiday villa in Tuscany, just a few minutes away from the Abbey of San Galgano and only a short drive away from Siena (35km - 22 miles).
The house is located in Monticiano, a medieval village in the heart of Southern Tuscany, surrounded by woods and walking trails in the unspoilt countryside of the Val di Merse and other ancient hilltop villages.

We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend Gigliola's apartment. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Gigliola was a lovely host and was very warm and welcoming, evening baking us a cake and providing us with milk, coffee and water for our stay. The apartment is in a great location and only a 5 minute walk to the local swimming pool and close by to the supermarket and a few cafes and restaurants. Our friends got married at the Abby and we were only a 10 minute walk away which was perfect. The area is beautiful and most of the locals are very friendly, with the exception of the staff in the supermarket who were quite rude to us and a number of our friends on separate occasions. Overall a brilliant stay and we would happily return.

Gigliola's place is absolutely fantastic. A lovely size for a few people to stay whilst travelling around beautiful Tuscany. Comes with a handy little terrace and really feels like a little house you can live in. Decently equipped kitchen and, if you are lucky, you may even be treated to a homemade fruit tart on arrival!

Very friendly lady. The first day of our stay the cooker did not work, and mrs. Gigliola cooked our dinner for us. She did not speak any other language than Italian. But when necessary she phoned someone who speaks English. Well-equipped apartment with a nice big terrace. Bathroom and living room have a very low ceiling, tall people will bump their head.

La mansarda si trova in una posizione strategica per visitare l'intera Toscana, è ben rifornita e la proprietaria è molto gentile e disponibile nel dare indicazioni sugli itinerari e i locali dove degustare i prodotti tipici toscani.
