I'm Ludovico Stevens, the son of Mrs Stevens who is the owner of cottage and lives in the main Villa attached to it.
I manage the booking & advertising of the cottage on my mother's behalf. I live in France.
We have been renting the cottage for many years, then we stopped for a few years as my father was reqiring a lot of care in his old age. After the passing of my father in 2012 we have restarted the cottage rental.

Absolutely perfect ! This quaint villa attached to the owners house was beautiful. Isabella the owner & her lovely dogs were a pleasure to meet. We did find it a little hard to find at first but when putting in the coordinations for the place, that was spot on. Also we arrived at dusk so the name was hard to see while driving by. We walked to the town on the hill , which property took around 35-40 mins , especially in the heat, but you can drive closer & park up & wander up the road too it, which is a steep but pleasant walk. Some fantastic views too. It was Nice to go back & cool down in the magnificent pool afterwards ! This place is in a central position to most parts of Italy that you may want to visit. We travelled to Rome & Florence, parking on the outskirts for very cheap or free & travelling into the centre by metro or tram. The drive taking around 2 hours. We found very good shopping an hour away & went to Lake Garda ( Desenzano ) but that was a little crowded but still enjoyable. This is one place I would definitely come back too. Even when I love a place , I always think to come a second time wouldn’t be the same but for us , this place was very special. Thank you for having us !

Many thanks for the review. We'll be glad to have you back. Ludovico

This was an idyllic retreat in a beautiful setting where we enjoyed a relaxing few days. We cannot speak too highly of Isabella and her three faithful companions. We were sad to leave them all and hope to return.

Many thanks for the kind review, Ludovico

We had a fantastic time at the villa. It's a beautiful spot and the gorgeous view to Montepulciano never gets old. The place itself was extremely comfortable, clean, cool, secure and well apportioned to stay at, and the pool just capped it all off in the heat. It was easy to drive up to the town from. And Mrs Stevens was a joy to meet and helped made our stay even more enjoyable.

Thank you for your kind review!

We had a wonderful week at the cottage. Beautiful views all around, and easy driving to places of interest. Isabella met us when we arrived and gave us the tour of the cottage and grounds. She has a lovely property and we would definitely stay there again. You definitely need a car to get around.

Another wonderful two weeks at Cottage Villa San Benedetto! With a wonderful position just outside the beautiful town of Montepulciano it is an excellent spot from which to explore southern Tuscany. The beautiful pool and the garden offer relaxing alternatives and the welcome from Isabella was second to none. We feel privileged to have stayed there.
