The apartment was exactly as advertised..it’s only a minute from the main square of Montepulciano and it has uninterrupted views over the valley to the west. There really couldn’t be a much better location unless you are staying in a much more expensive hotel.
Luca is a great host and very knowledgeable on the region and the wines. He is always available and very responsive.
So why only three stars? We found that some of the furnishings and equipment are getting a little ‘tired’ - this is how we found Luca is so responsive. First a number of lights didn’t function. Then many of the dining chair seats had holes in the weaving and one had a broken leg. The iron board was in pieces and unusable. And it’s odd that the microwave is stored on top of the bedroom cupboard.
I would say that the apartment is still good value but just be aware that it is not 5 star quality
Thanks Luca for a wonderful week in a beautiful apartment in Montepulciano. You were the perfect host, always available and willing to give good advice. The apartment has the most unbelievable views, particularly at sunset and was very comfortable for our wee family. Montepulciano is fun to wander around and get lost while eating gelato or having a wee drink. We will take home fond memories and cannot recommend this place highly enough. Excellent.
We stayed in the is fabulous apartment for 1 month and it was everything we had hoped for. Spacious, modern, comfortable, clean and convenient to everywhere. All is newly renovated, and everything in working order, including a washer and the best dryer in Tuscany, the sun (but a few more clothes pins would be nice). The view is spectacular, and the balcony is just a great place to hang out and to take in the sights and sounds of the valley spread out below. It's real life theatre to sit and enjoy. This side of Montepulciano is quieter, and access is much easier by car from the road coming from San Biagio below. It's just a few minutes walk to anywhere in town, and your neighbours are real town residents, a bonus! Luca, the owner, is just as fabulous as his flat. Anything you might need, he is always available, seemingly just minutes away. He is also a wonderful source of information about local restaurants, and especially about the wine! There is even some wine that he has furnished that you can purchase, and if you want something special or different, just ask. He really goes out of the way to make his guests feel welcome and special. This is one of our top experiences from staying in this area of Tuscany. I hesitate to rate it so highly, as it might become too popular! We will be back.
