Just 2 miles from Montepulciano, amongst vineyards and with views of the surrounding hills, the rural setting is idyllic. The building is detached, if you rent the full place for up to 6 people, and there are no other guests to use the large garden...More

The cottage was in a rural setting surrounded by grape plantings with only a 10-minute drive Montepulciano. Apparently the cottage was originally a farm equipment shed. According to local ordinances the shell had to be kept intact, but the interior has been completely redone with...More

An absolutely lovely unit with an outdoor patio under a trellis where we spent every evening. The histories of both Montepulciano and Cortona are interesting and we rate those visits above Siena - largely walking visits, but lunch at the Vino Nobile consortium for the...More

About the neighbourhood
Apart from the artistic and historical treasures to be discovered, there are local festivities and events in every little town. To mention just a few, the donkey race in Torrita di Siena is accompanied by processions in medieval dress and an impressive flag waving performance, and the yearly barrel pushing contest up the streets of Montepulciano in August is immensely popular. At the internationally acclaimed Teatro Povero di Monticchiello where residents take part in an open-air theatre in the summer , local cooking can be sampled in the evenings in the crypt of the church. Last but not least the wonderful countryside and picturesque streets of the little towns make this a walker's paradise.
Getting around
Wine tastings at local wineries are possible, an outing in the woods searching for truffles with a local expert (subject to seasonal and weather conditions), or a day at the hot spring baths of which there are several in the area, either transformed into a swimming pool or the natural pools in the coungtryside. Cooking classes are also available on request
