Description

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.

Podere Fontecastello's 3 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 Loggia has a private, and quite lovely, shady loggia for outdoor eating and lounging. It is as appealing indoors and the kitchen has recently been refurbished, making it even more attractive.

All three apartments are authentically Tuscan and the warm welcome you'll receive is genuinely Tuscan too!

Reviews
Ian Mackey, County Durham.
Absolutely loved it. Apartment was spacious, and comfortable, beautifully presented and in a superb location for walking into Montepulciano. Owners were very nice (welcome pack provided for breakfast as we arrived late on Saturday night, fresh eggs from their chickens, etc.). A nice touch was a rack of their very good own wine (4 euro a bottle and an envelope to pay for what you used). We just very quickly felt at home, and we'd definitely stay again.

Excellent location and accommodation, a really enjoyable holiday. La Loggia* provides rustic accommodation and has beautiful views over the swimming pool and surrounding countryside. You also have your own terrace which is lovely to have your breakfast on in a morning.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast basket on the first morning was a great help. It is only a short walk (up quite a steep hill) to Montepulciano where there are some lovely places to eat and have a few drinks. This property is also ideally placed for day trips to Florence, Sienna, Assisi etc.

Would definitely recommend it and hope to go back again.

Anne and Joe Johnson, Yorkshire.
Our stay at La Loggia was everything we hoped it would be - beautiful surroundings, good food and wine, lovely people - and our hosts could not have been more generous and helpful.

We were travelling by public transport but it was very easy to walk the 500m from the bus station down to Fontecastello. There is a supermarket near to the bus station and for those who find an uphill walk to the beautiful historic centre of Montepulciano daunting there is a frequent bus service. We were also offered lifts whenever we needed them.

When there was a national bus strike on the day we returned home Antonella arranged for us to be taken to the railway station at Chiusi.

We look forward to returning sometime in the future.


Mariolina Salio, Oxford.
Great place, much more spacious than we anticipated from the web description. Lots of character and lovely view and feel from the garden. Signora Marina, Signor Santo and Antonella were very lovely and careful and we really enjoyed our stay. Our daughter loved the geese, chicken and the rabbits and we enjoyed a walk through the property.


Tom & Helen Robertson, Aberdeen.
Owners were very welcoming, helpful, friendly and approachable. They advised and found train times etc for trips to various places where we didn't want to take the car. They were even very patient when we locked ourselves out of the apartment!

The gifts of eggs and home baking were also very nice gestures - and very tasty!!. We will definitely book again if we return to the area on holiday next year.


Jerry Gumeniuk, Bradford (5 star client)
We returned to La Loggia following last year’s visit and, again, we were not disappointed with both the hospitable welcome from Antonella and her family and the simple, yet charming and comfortable accommodation. It’s a perfect setting at the foot of the lovely medieval town of Montepulciano and for exploring the southern Tuscan region, with a trip to Lago Trasimeno and the hill top town of Pienza, a must!!
