PARADISE: Poggio Etrusco is an organic farm (olive oil, jam, wine) 10 minutes from Montepulciano. The owners are Americans who have lived here since 2001: Pamela is a cookbook writer and Johnny is an artist, and they have a spunky pre-teen who is very entertaining.The apartments are comfortable and the owners are available for any help you need. We stayed in Gelsomino which had a kitchen (we used it!) and fireplace (we didn't use it, too hot in May). The beds are super comfortable and we slept better here than anywhere else on our trip. The breakfast was perfect with eggs, fresh fruit and juice, homemade pastry, yogurt, and Illy coffee. The pool was incredible, and everything peaceful. Very much a countryside feeling, but just 5-10 minutes from anything you need (market, restaurants, wineries). We felt at home here, loved the puppies and the whole experience. We even loved doing our laundry and hanging it on the clothesline :-)
We would recommend this property highly, especially to families.
The central location was great for day trips. We went to Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, and Siena.
The pool was pristinely clean, and the hammock was divine.
The views were the classic rolling hills, vineyards, and a nearby medieval village. So sweet!
I spent a week in May 2004 with my cousin in this wonderful apartment in Montepulciano. We stayed in Apartment #1, located on the third floor of the building. We enjoyed the beautiful views from the living room and bedroom. It's a very nice apartment! We kept the windows open to enjoy the cool breeze that came through. There was terracotta style flooring, a living room with two couches (one fold-out), a fire place, small dining table, books to read, and a CD player with a few CDs. The bedroom was quite large with a king bed, dresser, armoire, nightstand.
The kitchen had a small table, 2 chairs, refrigerator, stove, toaster, cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc. The bathroom was tiled and a was a good size room with tub (no curtain), toilet, bidet, sink, and even a small washing machine. Outside the window was a clothes line. In the small cabinet were cleaning agents, as well as a hair dryer (though mine worked much better).
The apartment is in an exellent location, only a few minutes walk to the main piazza and restaurants. Parking is available along side the building.

We arrived in Montepulciano during a cold snap, so this lovely hotel with its toasty rooms was quite a treat. The lady working at the entrance was kind and very patient with our attempts at Italian. The cat sitting in the drawer at her desk was also enjoying himself. :)
The hotel also provided a parking pass for us to park close to the hotel (there wasn't exactly parallel parking in the narrow cobblestone streets).
The price I checked was for 3 people (a double room plus an extra bed).

I came across this B&B while doing research on MONTEPULCIANO. I have not stayed here, but it looks really nice. It's set in a medieval stone building. Lots of character.
Looks quite cozy and romantic.
Located in a quiet Tuscan hamlet in the hills near many small wonderful towns. Restaurant on the property that looks nice.
