The cottage was perfect and the hostess charming

By on 30-Sep-2018

The cottage was perfect and the hostess charming” Reviewed 30 Sep 2018 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 wood beams, air conditioning/heat throughout and everything beautifully finished inside. By the kitchen double doors led to a patio set up with a table and chairs for eating should weather permit as it did for us. The owner, Laura, lives in a separate house nearby and offered advice as to local restaurants etc. We wanted to do some cooking and were happy to hear there was a giant Conad supermarket at the edge of town with everything we might need. We ate out twice, once in Montepulciano and a second time eating authentic Tuscan food at Ristorante 13 Gobbi in Montefollonico another ancient hill town nearby. We loved our stay. Highly recommended.

The ultimate combination of a relaxing place to stay with nearby history

By on 01-Jul-2018

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 views atop Multepulciano and wine-sampling - and go to Il Totino in Cortona for a nice menu and spectacular view. Documented history back to the Etruscans, interesting shopping available nearby during the day, but the comfort of this apartment brought us home for the evenings. The regular hostess Laura was in England, but her daughter Geraldine did everything needed without intruding. Serious vineyards commence five feet outside the back yard. Bring a car because there is much to see nearby using good roads.

We will come back!

By on 30-May-2018

Reviewed 30 May 2018 It was great staying here! We found a nice little place to feel at home. The cottage is lovely furnished, very clean and has everything we needed for the week (including fast heating for some rainy and cold evenings (20minutes was enough to get the humid air out!) and free Wi-Fi, thats working perfectly and fast). We really loved sitting in the beautiful garden full of roses, looking over the wine-yards and listening to all the birds (also nightingales!!!). The cottage is set in a great surrounding - Tuscany like in a picture book! Laura was a perfect host. We felt very welcomed, we could ask her for everything and she could give us good hints for restaurants, hiking-paths and everything else you need to know for holiday. Thank you very much, Laura!
