Beautiful Medieval Apartment in Monticchiello, Tuscany

Apartments in Pienza
The name of Monticchiello first appears in an official document in 973; Marquis Lamberto Aldobrandeschi gave it to the Arniatina Abbey in guarantee of a large loan. In following years Monticchiello became the property of the Roman church, in particular of the Teutonic Order of Knights, a company used to armed combat thus being well suited to the occupation of a border territory; they were in power until 1230.

Later the Val d'Orcia was to be involved in various disputes leading to a war between the Siennese and the Florentines. The cause of the war was the claim to ownership of the 'Cassero' (fortified castle keep) of Montepulciano made by both Siena and Florence. Monticchiello itself sided with Siena, which in turn took an active part in castle life and local government.

The original building dates back to 1829 and the structure has remained unaltered since; the interiors have recently been restored to provide modern comforts and conveniences whilst maintaining the original rich architectural style. 'Case Maribelle' is situated in the old town centre of Montichiello, in what was once known as the 'Garden of Montichiello', close both to the town walls and the Piazza del Teatro.

Apartment is fully furnished including Tuscan antiques from the 17th and 18th century.

Maribelle is floored with the original terracotta tiles, the apartment has features in Siennese travertine marble, has concealed lighting and is furnished with solid walnut antiques.

This is the perfect spot to enjoy this region
Maribelle is a lovely apartment in a lovely town. A perfect spot to unplug as there is no wifi or television in the apartment. Barbara is a wonderful hostess. She was responsive to our questions and even escorted us to her friend's winery (Villa S'Anna) where we enjoyed a fabulous tour and tasting. Our only disappointment was the patio. Our selection of this VRBO was driven by a desire to sit on a patio with pastry and coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Our scrutiny of the photos showed the perfect setting. However, please be advised that the photos are from two separate apartments. Both outdoor areas are shown in the photos, but the downstairs apartment is the one with the patio. The upstairs apartment has an outdoor seating area that is not attached to the unit, is very rustic and has no view. That aside, this is a great place. We found that the kitchen was well equipped. There were more than enough linens. It is a spacious place, with nice views, in an adorable town. If you stay, make reservations at Osteria La Porta in advance as they fill up and it is a great place to eat. Great spot for sunsets, no crowds and easy access to Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulchiano. Again, Barbara is great, you can't do better.

We loved the location
We stayed here for three nights and the location is a great place to start from to see a lot of the Hill Top villages and wine tasting. The property lacked only kitchen utensils & the common area is small for anyone with party over 4 people. Barbara, the owner was wonderful and very easy to talk to. We had only one minor issue with Barbara as she thought she was being paid in cash and the account was pre-paid by credit card. You will love this little village and area.

WONDERFUL place to stay!
I can't say enough about this apartment, town and hostess -- everything was absolutely WONDERFUL, and it was a perfect home base for our Tuscany visit. The quaint town and views from it are breathtaking, in a very peaceful setting. The apartment was even nicer than pictured - large, pretty, clean, and the stillness with just the sounds of birds chirping outside the window was so relaxing. Strolling around the small town was a great way to start each morning, and two locals I encountered were friendly and welcoming, even though we couldn't communicate verbally (a gentleman in the tourist office bought me a cappuccino, and a woman near the church went in the back way to open the front doors for me). Barbara is also a wonderful person. She answered all my questions promptly, was flexible with the timing to meet us, arranged wine tasting, and even drove there and had us follow so we wouldn't get lost. As you can tell, we loved everything about this place, and highly recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Just thinking about it brings a big smile to my face. Don't hesitate to book it and ENJOY!

Perfect setting, perfect location
Four of us spent a delightful week in Montichiello in southern Tuscany at quaint and cozy La Mirabelle, using it as our home base. The apartment has old world charm that derives from its well preserved walled village feudal heritage. We loved exploring the immediate village, getting to know some of the onsite residents and proprietors as well as the more extended communities in Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni and numerous other locales throughout the Val D'Orcia. The wines and the dining were delizioso, particularly at La Porta and La Guardiola right there in the village. Each day ended with the warm return to the charming apartment. Grazie, Barbara, for sharing La Maribelle with us. Paul, Janet, Ridge and Jane
