This property is surrounded by beautiful landscape, and the doors and windows open straight out into it. We enjoyed our coffee in the morning and our wine at night outside on the patio. It was in a great central location between Montepulciano, Pienza, and Montalcino. Having access to the store in St. Giovanni was helpful. The management staff was helpful and checked in on us. This is a great place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Tuscany for a few days.
A Great Stay
The views at this property are incredible! Our family of 6 stayed comfortably here and loved the location. Renting a car is a must so we were able to take advantage of all that Tuscany had to offer! Would definitely recommend!

Tuscan dream spot!
Lots of room for our 6 kids and us to stay, spread out and enjoy the Tuscan scenery, food and weather. Podere Ampelle was fantastic. When you think of Tuscany, you will picture this place in middle of Tuscan farmland with beautiful scenery, quaint little towns on tops of the mountains, fantastic local food and wine. There was a very nice large community pool that our kids took advantage of. Laura was an awesome help in coordinating a birthday dinner for our 14 year old and ordering a cake. The restaurant she booked for us was just fantastic and the people were so friendly and nice. Laura made us feel very welcome and important to them. We would definitely come back here and are already making plans for a future visit.
Relaxing, energizing stay.
The property consist of several houses. Family owned and operated. Owner is very prompt for addressing all questions.
Pros: Breathtaking scenery, serenity, rural settings, remote, spacious house, privacy, very helpful and fast-responding owners.
Cons: there are no cons but the things to be aware of. See below.
Amenities: Villa Montisi house where we stayed has a separate driveway and private pool. House is one storey, clean, well-kept. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cookware, dishes, towels. Fridge, dishwasher, gas stove. Clothes washer in one of the bathrooms is small and slow, but helpful. Bathrooms are OK, tight on the counter space, like everywhere in Europe, hairdryer supplied. Shower drain kinda slow and with shower base being shallow it is easy to overflow and flood the floor, so need to be careful. Outside there is a pool (cold but swimmable), bbq grill, 8 seat table, several lawn chairs and loungers and a tent. WiFi - slow, unreliable and spotty. WiFi reception seems to be better outside rather than in the house. I had to use my LTE cell (thanks Rogers Roam Like Home) for 50% of my internet need.
All doors and windows have no opening window-panes to keep air in with door/window closed. One bedroom has walk-out doors but no windows. We were afraid to keep doors/windows open at night and had to run A/C instead, which was a waste of nice cool fresh nigh air. That was probably my biggest disappointment. Also, there are no nets on window/doors to keep bugs out, so they creep in, especially at night, when lights are on. Pill bugs, house centipedes and large spiders are no strangers inside, and while harmless, may make you cringe. There are few mosquitos, horseflies and gadflies outside at dusk, not very annoying.
You may need to buy own cleaning supplies, like dish soap, laundry/dishwasher detergent, as well as own toilet paper/towels. You expected to pay for the use of electricity, the owner was upfront about it when arranging the rental. We paid €100/2wk.
Groceries - there is a small Coop in St. Giovani d'Asso and bakery, literally 5-7 min away driving. Large Coop in a mall in Sinalunga is about 25 min away. No food in walking distance.
It is fun to explore small towns around. Must be aware of work hours. Lunch noon to 3 pm; dinner only after 7:30 pm. We are generally ok to drive up to 4 hrs, so used the place as a launch pad to visit Naples (Pompei), Venice, Rome, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Perugia.
