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 about 100 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.
Colombi Palace exceeded our expectations, to say the least. Giorgio's place is in the perfect location in Montepulciano. The view is insanely beautiful, the place is large and organized, yet homey. It is central in the town so that you can walk along the streets and wine taste and shop around. The bed is comfortable, the location is very safe, and overall it was our favorite B&B we've stayed in. Highly recommend. One other thing to note is that it is less than 100 yards from the town's famous Osteria Acquacheta restaurant - which was truly all it's cracked up to be. Make a reservation, get a steak, get the daily pici pasta and then go again the next night (It's also the only place open late in Montepulciano). Our favorite winery was Ercolani - taste the wine and get a tour.
We really enjoyed our stay at Giorgio's comfortable apartment for a number of reasons: the kitchen is great and extremely well stocked, the view out the kitchen window is beautiful, lots of space, very modern in an old building, quiet building, great location, handy to have own laundry room, and it was clean. Girogio was very easygoing and great to deal with. His communications were prompt and thorough. We highly recommend his apartment.
Giorgio's Palazzo Colombo was a fabulous place to stay. Montepulciano was a great respite after the crowds in Rome (and before the crowds in Venice). Giorgio's home is roomy and beautifully appointed, with everything needed for a comfortable stay. He has set up an easy self-check-in, though unfortunately that meant we did not meet in person. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and in the apartment there were personalized recommendations. It was a great starting point for exploring Tuscany, we took day trips to Sienna, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, etc. Your apartment was lovelye loved our stay and would highly recommend.
It was definitely a very lovely BNB experience. Giorgio was very nice and provided a lot of suggestions in terms of restaurants and local attractions. He welcomed us and helped us with the big luggage. The apt was very well decorated and as Giorgio is a chef, the kitchen is basically equipped withEVERYTHING you need. It was very clean and definitely gorgeous with local and the historical flavor. If anyone is looking for a nice stay in Siena area, Giorgio's apt is definitely the one that you should go.
We were happy to be greeted at the bus station by Giorgio and his assistant. Giorgio was very helpful in explaining the ins and outs of the apartment, the easy walking versus the steeper uphill walking around Montepulciano.
We came without a phone (big mistake) and finally purchased one which we could not figure out how to use. Giorgio graciously looked up bus and train schedules for us and kept in touch to see that we were doing ok.
The cookies, milk, juices and cereal were appreciated and we felt very welcomed.
The apartment is well appointed and comfortable. It's central location in the village made getting around very easy. From start to finish the experience was very good. Thanks, Giorgio.
Giorgio made access to the apartment incredibly easy and he very thoughtfully supplied milk, juice, and cookies! There was great information about restaurants, shopping and wine tasting in the area. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very convenient for spending time in Montepulciano as well as for day trips into the Tuscan countryside.
We spent three wonderful nights in Montepulciano and thoroughly enjoyed the apartment and our visits to local sights.
Thanks so much.
We had a wonderful stay at Giorgio's beautiful apartment. Giorgio has a very smart self-service check-in system which makes arrival and departure very easy. He was also very helpful when we had some problems with the washing machine and came over to fix it straight away. Ten points out of ten!
