We just spent a wonderful five days here. The apartment is exactly as described: beautiful, spacious, and comfortable, nestled inside a medieval fortress wall. Buonconvento is in the middle of the Tuscan Hill Town region, and we were able to visit all the sites within an hour's beautiful drive. Highly recommended.

Management response:

This area of Tuscany is intensely beautiful and within easy reach of many of the most significant cultural sites in Italy - Siena is 20 minutes away, Montalcino 10 minutes, Pienza, S.Quirico and Bagno Vignoni 15 minutes by car. The area offers great opportunities for walking, riding or cycling through spectacular, rolling countryside. The local town of Buonconvento, is officially one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy and has everything one can want - good restaurants, pubs, good delicatessens and craft shops where, among other items, you can order custom-made handbags at very good prices.
