One of three charmingly rustic apartments within walking distance of Montepulciano’s historic centre.
Podere Fontecastello's apartments are attractive and pleasingly rustic with nice touches like heirloom wrought iron beds (with comfortable, modern mattresses!) and handsome pieces of old oak furniture. The bathrooms are all fully tiled and sparklingly clean.
La Doppia is large, and has a full kitchen with oven, hob and fridge-freezer, two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a possibility to sleep 1 extra person in a double sofa bed (sleeps 4+1).
La Scala and La Doppia both have the pleasant garden for sunbathing and eating.
All three apartments are authentically Tuscan and the warm welcome you'll receive is genuinely Tuscan too!
1 double bedroom,
1 bedroom with two beds,
bathroom with bath tub/shower,
large open plan sitting room with kitchen and dining area,
use of garden for outdoor meals.
Broadband (wireless), TV, barbecue, fireplace, mountain bikes, pool towels, laundry (3 euro per wash).
Montepulciano is a hilltop town with an eye for theatricality. You simply can't help but love the atmosphere! It's one of Tuscany's more important wine towns and as such is always bursting with life. You'll find Renaissance art, well-stocked cantinas, shops and eateries aplenty and it's just 10 km from the Umbrian border. Culture buffs are spoilt for choice with all the great art on offer and all the best towns within easy reach, as a glance at any map will show. Scenic Siena is an hour's drive away and picturesque Pienza just 20 minutes; this humble little village was transformed by Pope Pius II in 1460 to become one of the earliest Renaissance masterpieces.
For the wine buff, there's the local Vino Nobile to sample in cool vaulted wineries. Slightly further afield, pilgrimages to the vineyards of Montalcino and Chianti will be the stuff of many a happy morning's wine tasting.

We had a wonderful time at La Doppia. Antonella was very helpful to us as we settled in, and we soon learned our way around Montepulciano and the surrounding beautiful countryside. The location is excellent. It was easy to get into town for groceries (we had a car, but walking is possible also), and we took some fine day-trips, to Pienza and to Siena. The lodging was comfortably furnished, with plenty of room for four. Everything in the kitchen worked. We were all sorry we hadn't booked for two weeks.

Marina, Santi and Antonella were such friendly hosts. We never felt like just another group of tourists; they were happy to struggle with our hopeless Italian to make us feel welcome. The farm is a great location as the walk up into the town helps to counteract all the delicious Italian meals! Also it's easy to visit other places like Siena, Pienza, Montalcino using the buses if you're reluctant to take on the stress of driving as we were. There are wonderful walks through the countryside in all directions. The actual apartment La Doppia was very comfortable and has everything you needed to eat at home if you choose to. And last but not least, Santi and Marina's wine is delicious - forget about Brunello!
Beautiful and spacious

This is a beautiful and spacious apartment on a pretty working farm with very helpful and attentive hosts, who presented us with a bottle of their own vino nobile on arrival. The apartment has two large bedrooms and a spacious living/dining/kitchen with high ceilings and good quality rustic furniture. The thick walls kept us cool in hot weather, and the views from the windows were charming. It is within walking distance (uphill) of the charming mediaeval hill town of Montepulciano and in the middle of rural Tuscany. We had pleasant day trips to Sienna, Cortona and Assisi.
This was the first time I had driven in Italy and also the first time I had driven on the right hand side of the road, and getting around southern Tuscany was good practice before heading to the busier parts of northern Italy.
We loved our stay at La Doppia and are grateful to our hosts for helping to make our holiday wonderful.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by Antonella, then shown to our rooms which were comfortable and clean, as was the rest of the property. The surrounding area was beautiful with great views across the valley to surrounding farms. Montepulciano was an easy walk from the farm, where we enjoyed some great food and of course great wine, we all found it a great joy on our many excursions etc.
A really nice place to stay, we hope to return soon.
