Interaction with guests
Our local House Manager speaks both Italian and English and will meet you upon arrival with keys and parking pass for your car. He will then take you through the apartment explaining how everything works, where everything is located and answer any questions you may have. The House Manager will also be available to you during your whole stay to make recommendations, give directions, or any other concierge type service.
Our apartment and neighborhood are unique within Montalcino in that you are only 10 steps from a loading-unloading area, a 3 minute walk to a major grocery store, a 2 minute walk to your private parking area, a 3 minute downhill walk to two of the best restaurants in the village and a 4 minute walk to the bakery, fresh pasta store, coffee bar and all the shops.
We recommend talking a winery tour, try biking through the countryside, taking a cooking class, visiting Pienza for the Pecorino Cheese, and driving the famous Val d' Orcia for some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see. All of this and more will be outlined for you in detail with the extensive information packet that we send to our guests after they have booked.
Other things to note
Our location within Montalcino is perfect for a visit to any of the 250+ local wineries plus wine bars to taste the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine. Enjoy some great Tuscan food and wine in the town's many restaurants. Walk through the charming medieval hilltop town and visit its many nice shops, selling local produce, wine, meat products, and honey as well as artisan products. And try locally made ice cream from the gelaterias. Enjoy the wonderful views of the famous south Tuscan countryside from the 16th century fortress and step inside a local museum or church for some traditional culture. Or just have a coffee or glass of wine in Piazza del Popolo to watch life pass by.
Our location within Tuscany is perfect to explore the famous spas in the neighboring town of Bagno Vignoni (25 minutes away) or to go for a hike or bike ride through some truly enchanting countryside. Try out the beach and seafood opportunities in Castiglione della Pescaia (75 minutes away) or enjoy the outdoor swimming pools in Buonconvento and Bagno Vignoni (20-25 minutes away). Visit the famous 9th century Sant' Antimo abbey (15 minutes away) or explore charming Renaissance towns like Montepulciano (45 minutes away) and Pienza (30 minutes away). The latter also doubles as the center for the Tuscany pecorino (sheep milk) cheese production. There are excellent shopping opportunities at the Val di Chiana outlet village (45 minutes away) or The Mall, perhaps Italy's best designer outlet village (90 minutes away). And there's always Siena (45 minutes away), the best preserved medieval city in at least Tuscany and with a great atmosphere.

From Southern California. My wife and I love good food, wine and travel. We rent out our charming cottage in Glen Ellen when we are not there ourselves.
