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 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 Scala is above La Loggia. It's prettily furnished and includes a nice well-equipped kitchen, a double bedroom, a small room with a single bed-settee and bathroom. 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!

Laurie Zinkand-Selles, Toronto.
We had a lovely time at La Scala. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had. We were very impressed with how nicely the property is kept; very tidy and nicely landscaped. Unfortunately, it was too cool for us to enjoy the use of the pool. The internet worked very well, which was a huge relief to my husband, who had to keep on top of some things happening with his work. We will definitely recommend it to friends looking for a place to stay.

We got along great at the property and were very well taken care of. The property is very well maintained and provided a great location to relax.

Joan and Derek Hart, Ontario.
Everything was wonderful - we had a great time. The hosts were charming and provided us with bounty such as olive oil, wine and fresh eggs. Very convenient spot, close to the town and the bus station for trips around the countryside when we could tear ourselves away from the wonderful vistas from our balcony.

Already thinking about when we might go back!

Charles Hunt, Victoria BC.
Marvelous accommodation in great surroundings. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts. Great location for easy walking (15 minutes) into Montepulciano and for day trips to nearby towns and villages either by car or public transportation (bus terminal is a less than 10 minute walk from accommodation).

This was our second stay at this property and we will eagerly return.

Martha McCaul, Edinburgh.
Our stay was perfect. The owners could not do enough for us. The property was very clean and we were provided with fresh towels every 2- 3 days. We also received gifts of wine,olive oil and fresh eggs. The Santi family work very hard on their farm and still find time for their guests!!

The property is very near the bus station and therefore although we hired a car you could have travelled around using the local transport.

The area in general is very peaceful and the local people are very friendly.
