Excellent rooms, outstanding dinners, and Vito the host is the most passionate of all. We had a great stay for 3 nights , Vito and his dinner time passion for food and service along with the amazing property and rooms will have us coming back for sure. To top it all the hotel is great value in Tuscany and Montalcino.

My husband and I had an incredible stay at Podere Brizio. It really is a little slice of Tuscan heaven. The rooms are beautiful, the food and wine were amazing, the pool, tennis courts and settings were all just wonderful! Situated perfectly in the Montalcino hills to visit lots of wineries and Montalcino too. I'd definitely recommend having a car whilst you are there as it's much easier to get around as it is in the middle of nowhere - which just adds to it's perfection, really! We didn't want to leave, and wouldn't hesitate to go back!
