The 2 of us had a two room apartment, which could sleep 4 but I would recommend this for any couple as the second bed is a only a bed settee in the living room area. We had loads of space and a comfortable seating area. Il Fienile is a beautiful old farmhouse skilfully converted into apartments. There is a covered parking area for each apartment plus individual outdoor dining areas. The gardens are extremely well cared for and the pool was immaculately clean with plenty of sunbeds and deckchairs. We stayed for a week but many of the guests (from all over the world) were on touring holidays and stayed 1 or 2 nights to enjoy the peace and a spot of leisure on their hectic schedules. The location is perfect for Montepulciano, 2 or 3 km from the town which is full of shops, enoteca and restaurants; plus many other beautiful Tuscan towns are easily accessible. One downside was the busy road that runs past Il Fienile, it was practically non-stop traffic (cars plus heavy agricultural vehicles) from very early until late. Also our shower drainage was extremely sluggish, but the drains are probably very old, so it was to be expected. All in all we enjoyed staying here in September and would recommend it as an intimate agriturismo experience when the weather is slightly cooler.
