This is an incredibly charming bed and breakfast located within the walls on Montalcino. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. They also have a couple common areas that are gorgeous, have strong wifi signal, and the occasional complimentary grappa or pear liquor :)
The description was a little misleading because it isn't a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom. We ended up staying in a triple room (there was a door separating the one bedroom from the other, but in order to use the bathroom we had to enter the other bedroom.) The good news is that the owners moved us to 2 separate rooms and honorably only charged us the same price we were paying for 1. The wifi isn't great in the lower rooms but it's relatively strong in the common areas and in rooms on higher floors.
The owners are incredibly warm and friendly. They don't speak English, but even when they speak Italian you get a general sense of what they are saying. If not, they carry an iPad with them and use (website hidden) Translate -- It's kind of adorable.
Breakfast was available from 7-9am. It had delicious pastries, yogurt, croissants, breads, the owner's home made jam, cereal, coffee, water, and juice.
You *must* try the "Why Not" Gelateria around the corner. I'm not kidding when I say that it's the best I had this trip. The chocolate will knock your socks off :)
Cinzia and Daniella are superb hosts who care deeply for their guests and preserving the heritage of their 1500 era former palace! Although neither host speaks much of any English, it was certainly a good workout for my budding Italian and a niece was on hand to translate and help out where necessary.
The room was truly palatial and the town is amazing. I happened to come one of the most fun weekends in Montalcino out of the year, as it was the Festival of the Beginning of Hunting Season and the flags from all four neighborhoods were in full display, and mostly the townspeople and Italian visitors were there for the weekend festivities--not too many American or other tourists anywhere to be seen or heard.
Breakfast has a good choice of food and Cinzia and Daniele will make food to order as well if guests have special needs.
My only complaints were that I prefer some air circulation so would have liked the availability of a fan; the lock on my door is pretty well from the 16th century and even when locked easily comes undone, and I would have prefered a normal size and weight key to the heavy one emulating ancient times.
All in all a wonderful weekend and I have lots of great pictures in mind to paint already! My thanks to both Cinzia and Daniella for your kindness and hospitality and for the escort the local restaurants for lunch on the two days I was there.
Lovely stay - We were welcomed and taken care of the whole time. I was there with my 2 kids and they liked it too. The location was excellent, right in the heart of Montalcino. We will definitely go back!
This was a great experience! The place was lovely,located in the beautiful surroundings of Montalcino, but more importantly- GREAT service by the two sweet ladies who run the place! They were all smiles and very accommodating, and went out of their way to help us get a ride to the wedding we were going to in Argiano.
We were extremely pleased with the place and would highly recommend it to others!
