Villa of the Month

Villa of the Month

Have a look at Casa Glyn in Cotto, Lunigiana, Northern Tuscany, or contact Merrion for more information.

"Our stay at Casa Glyn was a marvelous experience. The property is well equipped, very nicely organized and decorated with very special touch. The property is very spacious and easily accommodated our family. The pool is just great and the hot-tub, especially in the evening, is a unique experience.. "

La Bandita Townhouse, Pienza, Tuscany April 2014

La Bandita is a great idea beautifully executed with excellent design and fantastic attention to detail. Staying in Pienza , particularly out of season, connects you to the place and the people to a greater degree than would otherwise be possible without living there. Our room on the top floor was large, simple and very beautiful with far reaching views over the roof tops to the Val D’Orcia. The bar with honesty tab and record player is a relaxed place for a drink or coffee and their small restaurant on the ground floor which flows out in to the garden has a touch of the River Café: great design, food and an excellent wine list. John and his wife and their friendly and enthusiastic staff run the hotel very well and are great guides to everything from the wine list to the best cycle routes. The Val D’orcia is a place of exceptional beauty and long views; the gardens at la Foce are life enhancing beyond expectation.

Bespoke tour (Villa Barone, Grand Hotel Continentale, Monteverdi, L’Orto degli Angeli) September 2013

Hi Merrion
Feed back time, as promised ! Overall we had a fabulous holiday and a great , relaxed and informative trip. Thank you so much for the varied recommendations which went from luxurious private accommodation in the Baron's home at Penzano , to the fabulous mountain top resort at Monteverdi ,to the quaint and old fashioned hotel in Sienna and finishing up at the quiet, museum of accommodation in Bevagna. All had their plus points but Monteverdi had EVERYTHING and suited us to the letter!.......Everything at Monteverdi was perfect: the owner was there who was very laid-back and relaxed and the staff were very friendly and efficient and we enjoyed the dining room experiences. We are recommending Monteverdi to everyone and anyone who wants to listen !!....Every trip from any hotel to a surrounding town or village was an experience and delight and nowhere disappointed us and we mean nowhere !....We have no hesitation in recommending you to others who might want to undertake a similar trip and all I would add is ensure your car hire has sat nav and believe it when it tells you to turn onto an unmade 'track' because it was nearly always right !!
Thanks again for all your help and advice !
Kind regards and our best wishes,
John & Bridget
