The agriturismo

Mansalto is in the heart of Tuscany just 4 km from the village of Palazzuolo, half way from Siena - Arezzo. The agriturismo covers three hamlets - Palazzuolo Vecchio, Montemaggiore and Podere Cortinova-Marrocco – with tennis courts and two luxury villas with spa.

The agriturismo is dedicated to organic farming, producing wine, fire wood and lumber.

The accommodation

The agriturismo includes three hamlets which containcharacteristic farmhouses, many of which were built using the remains of the original buildings, those destroyed during the battles betweenSiena andArezzo.

Palazzuolo Vecchio (province of Arezzo), stands on the ruins of a castle destroyed by the Sienese in 1100. Montemaggiore’s very name (great mountain) evokes its importance in the past as a sighting point over Siena (15km). Podere Cortinova (Marrocco) facesSiena (20km), the Crete Senesi and its towers.

Inside the farmhouses, the original beamed ceilings and terracotta floors have been preserved, as well as splendid fireplaces in stone or brick, still in perfect working order. Each accommodation facility has garden furniture, a private outdoor area and a swimming pool.

Villa Le Tornaie, probably of Roman origin, has been restored to include a sitting room with fireplace and grand piano, fully-equipped kitchen, outdoor swimming pool, gym and aerobics area, sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool tub and lounge area.

Villa Stroncoli has a panoramic view of the Crete Senesi, and Mount Amiata and Cetone. During the renovation works, a floor and wall, probably dating back to Etruscan times, were uncovered. The facility has an outdoor swimming pool, spa pool for 10 people, gym and lounge area; 7 bedrooms (one with whirlpool tub) and one suite; a dining room with large stone fireplace and cypress wood table, fully equipped kitchen, reading room with sofas and antique bookcases.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a taste of the farm’s own wine. Services offered include: tennis court, Wi-Fi internet (at the offices and at the villas), shopping service, chef service, catering for dinners and lunches, breakfast service.

Activities and surrounding

The surroundings are perfect for walking, biking or mountain biking. Some areas are hunting reserves. Guests can also take part in a wine introduction and wine tasting courses.

    "Attention to deposit / extra charges and spoprattutto Interhome Agency"

    04/20/2016

    On 04/05/2016 I book by booking two nights (15/04 -17/04) for 4 people in the apartment (at Montemaggiore structure 6) at Euro 127 - on the site and in the email confirmation of the conditions is which excludes 14 Euro cleaning fee and linens cost them 13 euros - in the conditions is not any deposit (inserted instead of the important information of Euro 155 - it would not be appropriate to insert it between the conditions - as it is shelling out cash more than the cost of the whole entire stay?) - Also on 04/05/2016 I get emails by the agency Interhome in which they thank me for booking and I attached a series of documents viaggio.Leggo everything and I discover by reading the bill that more than already paid price (EUR 127) according to them I should not have to pay extra charges € 13 sheets and 14 Euros for cleaning but well 108 Euro since the sums stated are to be calculated per person. Considering the possible price by having to pay more when using radiators equal to 5.5 euro per m3 - on 04/06/2016 I write immediately to Interhome, expressing my concerns, asking for an explanation and especially pointing out that not having been specified on the site all these additional expenses (including the fact that the indication of the deposit was not included among the conditions but between the information) and also having read that in the event of cancellation being close to the living room I would still be charged 80 % of the amount? if the problem was not resolved I demanded the cancellation without penalty. - On 04/07/2016 at 10:21 I get phone call from a consultant Interhome I apologize for the incident, asking me if I'm willing to cancel the booking and as an alternative I propose the return of what I paid for and did not have ( since it does not explicitly foreseen in the reservation) following by mail send the invoice issued by the structure of the extra expenses paid by me. Being now behind the starting accept the proposal and in any event the evening for safety (since Verba Volant) write an email to Interhome remembering what were the agreements made for short routes in the morning - On 04/15/2016 I and my family we arrive at the property for the withdrawal of the keys tell what happened administrator CEO of the company Agricola Arl Tree Plus company and its employees who tell us that they are having a lot of customer complaints about the attitude of the company Interhome that changes after booking conditions? It said this, however, are willing to provide invoice with related expenses incurred. - On 04.18.2016 returned from the living room as I provide arrangements to send the invoice by mail or to the company Tree Plus Società Agricola Arl that the agency Interhome Interhome .. not even deign to respond, the company Tree Plus Agricultural Society arl answer that they contacted Interhome who replied that the refund request must pass through Booking.com and then I do not intend to make any direct reimbursement as agreed.

    "An amazing holiday at Montemaggiore"

    08/25/2015

    It is always a pleasure to come back to Italy, homeland of my father, but this time I really had an amazing experience, the best of last few years. Everything was as it should be everywhere: a kind and always available staff, beautiful structures, always clean and tidy, a lot facilities where to relax and have fun, like pools and spa, and an amazing landscape to look at every morning. We were a little bit worried about the position (effectively, you are in the middle of a huge forest) but when we had to go to Siena to see the Palio, and we had to do that two times, we realised how easy and quick it is to get to the city. Even if the structure does not have its how restaurant, however we either have the possibility to cook for ourselves or to go to some of the restaurants in the nearby, suggested by the staff. We have also had the chance to visit the cellar and the vineyards, and to have a very good tasting of their wines. Overall, it has been an amazing holiday, enjoyed by my whole family.
