Our philosophy at Summer's Leases has always been to select only those apartments and villas that we would enjoy staying at. Il Giardino Segreto (The Secret Garden) is a perfect example.

It's situated less than 300 yards from Montepulciano's central Piazza Grande so couldn't be more convenient for shops, bars and restaurants. Yet it has a large private garden for you to dine out, sunbathe or just laze around.

It's on the first floor so you go up a classic flight of Italian marble stairs to the apartment. Straight ahead is the main sitting room, open plan with a comfy settee, satellite TV, a dining table should you want to eat indoors and a well equipped kitchen wall: 5 gas hobs, an electric oven, large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, toaster, coffee machine etc.

There's also a second sitting room (also with TV) with another settee and doors out to the garden.

The two bedrooms are beautifully decorated and furnished in Tuscan style and each has its own bathroom with shower.

As if that's not enough, there's the "secret garden". It's divided into three areas, a lower terrace for eating or sitting, a central grass area and the top sunbathing terrace. We think this is unique in Montepulciano!

The town itself, for those who don't know, is a wine lover's paradise. The famous Vino Nobile comes from here and there are plenty of cantinas along the city streets where you can go tasting, or explore the spooky Redi Cantina to step back several hundred years.

Those intent on sightseeing are well catered for too. As well as Montepulciano's own San Biagio church, based on designs by Bramante. In addition Pienza, Bagno Vignone and Siena are all within an easy drive. There's something for everyone at Il Giardino Segreto.

Excellently placed for exploring Montepulciano and with beautiful views to the front over the southern Tuscan countryside, Il Giardino Segreto is an ideal location from which to laze around the town or explore further afield.

The apartment is well equipped and comfortable and access to it from one of the oldest and arguably most interesting via in Montepulciano is easy. Parking was not a problem as Antonella provides a parking permit.

We loved the fact that there's always a bar or restaurant to visit in the evening and the Piazza Grande, only 5 minutes' walk, is the ideal place to watch the world go by. If your bag is café culture, don't miss the caffe Poliziano with excellent food, drinks and views as far as Umbria from the balcony.

At the end of the via is Cantina Gattavecchi with (more) excellent food and wine. Their rosso is superb value and the friendly staff will also give you a guided tour of the wine cellar beneath the restaurant which in a previous life was a church.

The apartment is extremely well located close to fort, piazza, shops and restaurants. Two bedrooms, two living areas and two bathrooms, makes the accomodation comfortable for a longer stay. Facilities are comprehensive and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful on any issues and readily available. The big feature is the lovely rear outdoor area and garden. We found the rear lounge with its smart tv very useful.

Ingve Bergheim, Norway
For our purpose the apartment was just perfect. Comfortable and roomy enough for the five of us, and conveniently placed in the centre of town. Quiet and peaceful with a great garden for the kids to play around in.

Antonella welcomed us and provided us with a baby cot and high chair. The welcome-basket with breakfast (and later on the Easter cake) was much appreciated!
