Interaction with Guests
I am living at 4 kilometres in the farmhouse and winery I am running where I mostly work as chef, sommelier and wedding planner. However, upon request I offer a smart solution in case of self service check in.
Anyway you will find into the flat a very helpful book with all the information you may need to discover all the beauties of my town.
Everything is just at few steps: shops, wineries, restaurants and overall the beautiful Piazza Grande.
The main bus station is at about 1 kilometer, but there is the "Pollicino", the local small orange bus, stopping just in front of the house and will take you all around the village.
The main train station is in Chiusi, 40 minutes driving from Montepulciano. Free parkings are located at only 50 meters.
Other Things to Note
Two of the many windows look at Via del Poliziano, from where you can watch the famous "Bravio", the local barrell race.
Smoking is allowed only in the separate laundry room.
We have been very pleased by Giorgio's flat.
It is very well located in Montepulciano, it is quiet, bright, very comfortable and it looks even better than on the photos. The view from the kitchen on Tuscany's countryside is particularly amazing. Giorgio is also a very nice host. Even if he was abroad, he replied quickly on his emails to answer questions regarding the flat and Montepulciano (before we arrived in the flat and once we were there).
We really enjoyed our stay in Colombi Palace, Montepulciano. Although our host Giorgio was out of town when we arrived, he left clear and easy to follow instructions. The apartment was wonderful, and remarkably well appointed. The pictures on airbnb are a very accurate representation. If you like cooking, you will be impressed and amazed with Giorgio's well-supplied kitchen. Giorgio also left us with a list of very good recommendations, re: what to see and where to eat in Montepulciano.. We couldn't ask for more--well, maybe a little more time!
Wonderful apartment, perfect for our family of four! Location, design, view from the kitchen window and laundry (with dryer) across the hall will give you everything you need for your stay. The self check-in process was easy and the apartment was warm and toasty when we arrived. Highly recommend!
Hi Maggie and thank you for your review and suggestions as well. I am sorry about the bed arrangment I have just double checked with the house keeper and she justified telling me there where anymore king size linens, I am really sorry for this and thank you for the notification. You are definitely right, the beds arrangment should be as in the pictures. Concerning the cutting boards I have to say there are minimum two in the big drawer, one white and the other black. Best regards.
We had the perfect stay in Giorgio's wonderful apartment. Everything worked smoothly, the flat is very cozy and very nicely decorated too. What we specially appreciated is that Giorgio really takes care of his guests - although he was away he checked several times if everything was OK. And as it got suddenly very cold (we were there in February) he immediately put the heating up, so we felt very comfortable. The flat is quiet, centrally located with amenities (shop, restaurant etc.) nearby. We enjoyed the wonderful view from the kitchen, which is very modern and well equipped. I could go on with my praise, but to make it short: Five stars out of five! Highly recommended! Barbara
This is a terrific apartment in a good location. Our son said it was the "coolest" place we stayed on the trip. It easily handled the four of us and access to a washing machine was a big help. Giorgio had a bottle of wine and delicious chocolate chip cookies waiting for us. Parking can be hard but we always found a spot. You can easily cook in the kitchen; we just made espresso each morning. Be sure to eat at Al Quattro Venti (we went twice) and at Acquacheta, a real experience.
We loved the apartment, location, all very easy and well equipped. Highly recommended.
Giorgio has worked out a very efficient system for self check in, and he communicated the steps to us well in advance of our arrival.
The apartment is just as pictured, in a beautiful old building located on a picturesque alley, with a wine tasting cellar right next door.; the famous Aquachetta restaurant is just a short walk.
The view from the kitchen window must be seen to believe! Coffee and milk were provided, and there was a large jar of delicious cookies to greet us.
The kitchen is very well equipped, however it only has a cook top, no oven other than a microwave. still I enjoyed cooking there very much. The shopping for food is very limited in Montepulciano , but in nearby Pienza there are many wonderful choices.
The bed is especially comfortable , made up with luxury linens. There is a second small bedroom as well, so the apartment could accommodate three adults comfortably.
The only concern was that I am not sure that we located and parked in the correct parking spaces. Montepulciano has a large well designated tourist parking lot, which costs 1,30 hr. However it is not close to the apartment , or practical due to the expense. So we parked in the spots by the church, originally recommended by our host. Clearly the white stripes designating this as free parking had just been painted over with yellow- for residents only. Not sure how we will fare on this until we receive final bill from our car rental.

Sommelier e cuoco prima per gioco e passione, poi ciò diventato il mio lavoro. Amo conoscere nuove persone, storie e culture, sono appassionato di arte ed enogastronomia, adoro viaggiare ed ascoltare musica.
I have started to be a chef and sommelier just for fun, then these passions became my job. I love authentic food, travelling, art and music, meeting new people and cultures.
