We stayed at Agricola Barbi for 3 nights in late September 2015. The location and views are stunning. Beautiful views across the valley to Pienza, a lovely walk up the hill to Montichiello, Vilmo was a gracious and helpful host. Two items of interest for future renters. First, if possible stay in the west (2 bedroom) apartment. It has a beautiful porch and the far superior views. Second (we were in the smaller east apartment), when the renters in the adjacent apartment used their plumbing fixtures the kitchen sink in our unit would gurgle and occasionally waste water would bubble back up into the sink. This was a problem for cooking as the cooktop/sink were one unit and food contamination could be an issue. We immediately notified Vilmo and he said he would have the plumber come out and clean the waste lines. We were given a voucher for morning coffee and pastry at the small bar oustide the gate of Montechiello. Hopefully the issue will be resolved soon.

Room Tip: Apartment on the west side has much better views/terrace.

I was looking for a beautiful place to stay in peace and quiet with lovely views - and this was even better than I had hoped. The website photos are good but don't do justice to the beauty of the building, an old family farmhouse lovingly restored at jaw-dropping expense and furnished with antiques. Even the doors and shutters are the antique originals, darkened by age and polished like treacle toffee, with intriguing catches and handles. The ceilings are five metres high and the views, especially from the front rooms, are breathtaking. There is a very large kitchen diner, with the original fireplace and stone sink, and the addition of modern kitchen units and appliances (fridge, microwave, oven etc). The kitchen area is small but well provided with everything a self-caterer needs (knives, boards, pans etc). Alongside the enormous old table is a small TV. A separate room houses a cot and a washing machine. The owner is the perfect host, friendly and efficient, and speaks pretty good English; the apartment was spotless. A huge basket of Italian breakfast food is provided, including tea, juice and real coffee. There is ample parking and even a picnic bench shaded by plum trees. I was staying in the apartment "Podere Montello 1" and had the exclusive use of a large terrace with amazing views and fulll-on sunset action every night, furnished with table and chairs. I am starting to save up so that I can come back.

Things to be aware of: the wifi is reliable but has insufficient bandwidth for game-playing or video streaming; there is a (spotless) shower but no bath; the main bed has an “orthopoedic” mattress which I found impossibly hard (the twin beds are softer); each bedroom has a comfy armchair but there is no sofa; I stayed during a heatwave and found the lack of aircon a drawback, although the large portable fan was a godsend.

Room Tip: Apartment Podere Montello 1 is the large apartment in the renovated farmhouse and was just fantastic.

We had a very nice stay in this apt. We wanted a place a little outside of town and with parking. We so enjoyed this little village. Our apt was very large and had everything we needed...it isn't fancy but it was big, clean and we made good use of the clothes washer...we enjoyed the company of the little farm cat and the resident puppy, Orlando...Vilmo was a nice host and had a nice basket of nibbles for our breakfasts.

I have stayed in Azienda Agricola Barbi with my friend at the beginning of May. We were lucky to book in advance the best apartment with huge terrace and view over the Tuscan landscape. I will never forget having breakfast on the terrace while looking at the lovely landscape with cypress trees and small Tuscan stone houses. The owner Mr. Barbi is very helpful, nice, he speaks good English. He gave us some more information about the region. For those not having car: you can reach by foot picturesque Monticchiello or you can visit a winery not far away where a winetasting can be arranged and upon request, if possible, the owner can pick you up. The apartment is fully equipped with all you need and above all you can also find there books, leaflets about Tuscany and the region itself, I appreciated it a lot. All was perfect, I can only recommend the place and I am sure I am going to come back.

We recently visit Val d' Orcia last week. When we first arrvied the hotel we were stunned with the majestic view of the valley with Pienza town on the background. The owner was very nice and helpful. He provided us extensive details and info of what to do where to eat, and even where to get free parking around Val d' Orcia. The hotel also has good connection with La Porta restaurant where we can get special deal from the restaurant (which is among the best meal of our trip in Italy). We had very great experience during the visit and will come back to stay here for sure.
