Suite d'Artista is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday, combining the atmosphere of typical Tuscan countryside with Montalcino's amenities.
Nestled just below Montalcino's historical centre, a peaceful spot with several apartments overlooking a large panoramic garden where there's a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath, gazebo, barbeque, wood oven and private parking. All Suites have pieces of contemporary art to admire during the stay.
Apartment #3 Botto & Bruno:
A large open plan apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, a lounge with a library that divides the rest of the room from the double bed. A door then leads you either to a private bathroom with shower in travertine, or to the stairs up to a small loft where there are two single beds. The apartment is equipped with air conditioning, satellite tv, free wi-fi connection, hair dryer.
Outside the kitchen door there is a small private terrace with table and chairs.
Next to the main entrance there is a traditional wood oven.
Upon arrival we provide a welcome basket with breakfast supplies.
Lisa Jane is a wonderful host and Suite D'Artista is truly a special place. Lisa went above and beyond typical host duties-- from booking private wine tours, to recommending the best restaurants and making reservations, to providing the perfect itinerary to explore Val D'Orcia and it's beautiful hilltop towns. There was so much to do in Tuscany-- Montalcino and Lisa Jane provide the perfect "home base" to explore it all. Some of our favorite memories are relaxing at Suite D'Artista-- drinking espresso outside, reading a book by the pool and making a meal with fresh herbs from the garden. Thank you to Lisa and Andrea for making us feel right at home and giving us the authentic Montalcino experience. Tyler and I can't wait to come back!
I don't even know where to start, this place was so wonderful we booked an extra night at the end! LisaJane was a fantastic host, was very helpful in figuring out the bus system from Siena, and also went out of her way to ensure our stay was wonderful-from arranging a private tour of the wineries to sorting out dinner reservations. The room was lovely, and was perfect walking distance from town to ensure peace and quiet but accessibility to the towns main square. We will definitely be returning to suite d'artista again! Thanks Lisa for an incredible stay.
This was a great little find in Montalcino. Lisa Jane and Andrea were super friendly, responded to queries, and were extremely helpful in giving suggestions of tours in the area. Would definitely recommend this place.
Our vist to Suite d'artiste the last week of June was better than we had expected from the photos. Lisa Jane was beyond accommodating with instructions and advice before and during our visit to Montalcino. Despite our side trips around the Tuscan region, we found the time to make use of the outdoor garden and pool area. Suite d'artiste is the perfect spot for those traveling through Tuscany that want to get a flavor for a specific town. I'd recommend this to anyone open to caring for themselves without the formality of a fancy hotel. Lisa Jane was on cue with all of the restaurant suggestions and tips that she hated with us.
We loved every moment of our trip to Italy, and our stay at Suite d'Artista. Lisa and Andrea are totally committed to making sure everything you need is taken care of. Montalcino is a great little town to serve as a home base for exploring Tuscany. It's close enough to the beach to make a day trip there too. Take time to explore Montalcino and relax at Suite d'Artista...you'll be glad you did.
A large unit with a good kitchen and nice yard outside with a good view of some of the countryside. Staff were very helpful with reservations to restaurants and also got some fresh fruit that we requested for our breakfast. It was a nice respite after touring the country side during the day. Having a laundry machine available was also very helpful.
It was very close to the main street of Montalcino, however, getting there requires walking or driving up a fairly steep hill which might be difficult for some people.
We had a very pleasant stay there.
Montalcino was absolutely amazing, and Lisa Jane was a wonderful host. She was incredibly accommodating and friendly! She had the greatest recommendations, booked reservations and tours for us, and we absolutely loved it all. The suite and property were beautiful. The bathroom will be better than any in Italy you have seen, great for soaking in the tub after hiking all over the steep hills. The kitchenette is useful for the haul you bring from the butcher, and the Nepresso is useful from your post entoca day hangover. All in all, we would have loved to stay 10 more days, so plan on spending more than 3. We will be back!
We loved staying at suite D'Artista, located in the beautiful medieval town of Montalcino, and having a wonderful home base to explore Tuscany. We were ideally positioned to explore the wine areas of Brunello di Montalcino, Montepulciano etc., with easy access to other major destinations such as Siena and Florence.
There are three separate suites suites on the property, each with access to the beautiful garden. When we weren't exploring the town or the surrounding countryside we loved just relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the garden and making friends with Luigi (Nero) the local cat.
Lisa Jane and Andrea were superb hosts and very helpful in every way. As well as providing such a wonderful place to stay, they offered us excellent local knowledge, advice and contacts wherever we wanted to go. They also provided tea, coffee, snacks and breakfast items, which was especially thoughtful as we felt at home from the moment we arrived.
All in all it was a fantastic trip, and we look forward to returning soon!
We cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Suite d'Arista in Montalcino! The suite was beautiful and just as the pictures show it and the location was fantastic. Most of all, having Lisa as a host was amazing. She is very knowledgable of the area and has great suggestions for everything and was more than willing to help us out and even make reservations for us. We had the experience of staying at a high end hotel in the quaint and beautiful surroundings of their property - we highly recommend any of the suites to everyone!!
Stay here if you ever get the chance !!! The suites are wonderful with everything you need. Attentive hosts and beautiful grounds. Close to everything and parking! Thank you Lisa Jane wish we could have stayed for weeks.
