“Monte San Savino was a trip into the real Tuscany. The rural views were fantastic. A lovely apartment that still maintained the atmosphere of time gone by but consisted of all the mod cons you needed for a comfortable stay. Situated next to a main square you were able to casually wander the cobblestone streets and alley ways of the walled town. Although not a big town Monte San Savino had an adequate number of good cafes and restaurants and a large supermarket close by. Many other top Tuscan destinations are only a short and enjoyable drive away. Molly was very accommodating and made things very simple for us to collect keys and find the apartment. We wish we could have stayed longer.”
“We had a wonderful visit to Tuscany thanks to Molly and Mark and their beautiful house. The village is small and a great place to spend a week. It is very well situated for sightseeing throughout the area and pleasant to return to for a quiet evening. Be sure to take their recommendations for restaurants as we did and discovered some amazing food. Thanks again for Molly's hospitality and the ease of organizing a non-simultaneous exchange.”
“We spent 9 days in Molly's flat. From the beginning until the end we felt like real Toscan people! The flat is really, really comfortable, well designed and furbished and you immediately feel like home. It is located in a very nice town with everything around you: gelateria, very nice restaurants, coffees, grocery etc. You are in the heart of Toscana with a lot of beautiful city's to see (Florence, Sienna, Arezzo etc... around 1 hour or less. Each day, after our trips in Toscana, we enjoyed to be back in Monte San Savino's flat to chill a bit, go to a good restaurant or take a tasty ice cream. Before and during our trip we exchanged mails with Molly, communication was really easy and kind. In a word, we want to thank again Molly and her husband for this non simultaneous exchange and hope that they will enjoy their future stay in our flat as we enjoyed our trip in their flat!”
Where is it?
Our town, Monte San Savino is a beautiful Tuscan walled hill town of approximately 500 friendly souls, inside the walls, and a total of 7,000 people in the total Monte San Savino Area. Our house is inside the walls of Monte San Savino in the historic district; we own the top 3 floors of a 15th century building. The ground and first floors are an unused shop and apartment. The front windows look out on the main square and the historic main street, open to pedestrian traffic only. It should be noted that the house is on 3 floors (although the attic is not used except for storage) and any guests should feel comfortable with going upstairs to the bedrooms, and downstairs to exit the building. Monte San Savino is perfectly located: 45 minutes from Siena, Cortona, Montepuliciano, Pienze, 20 minutes from Arezzo and 1 hour by car or less by train from Florence. Closest airport is Florence (1 hour by car) or Rome 3 hours by car. The countryside is totally rural, breathtaking rolling hills with olive groves and vineyards. There is free parking 3 minutes from our house outside the main gate of town. For those with young children, there is a water park "Crocodile" 10 minutes drive from our house.
