Description

The space

Beautiful charming flat, very romantic, ancient residence of the owner's great-grandfather, Notary of Montepulciano. Recently wholly renovated, very quiet, in a very beautiful location: in the historic center of the town, but overlooking the city walls in a dominant position.
Two delightful, romantic bedrooms tastefully decorated, smartly furnished, both with hardwood floors, beautiful frescoed '800 ceilings, and a magnificent view to 180° over the entire Valdichiana and Trasimeno Lake.
Very bright living room with exposed wooden beams and tiled floors.
Full kitchen with electric oven and microwave.
Washing machine.
Bathroom with shower/hydromassage.
LCD TV. Air conditioned. Heating system. Internet WiFi
Sleeps 4 (1 double + 2 single attachable) +2 (2 sofa-bed). Enjoyed all year round.

NOTE: The house and the street below, for their highly scenographic characteristics , was used for shooting some scenes of the movie "NEW MOON" (sequel to "TWILIGHT") and, more recently, for shooting the TV-movie "MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE" with Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden (almost entirely shot in Montepulciano and Pienza)

This apartment was amazing...right off the main street, on a picturesque winding road. The apartment itself was beautifully decorated and very, very comfortable. Fernanda made everything so easy and was available immediately whenever we had any questions or concerns. I cannot recommend this place enough. It was wonderful!!

Wonderful location in the heart of the medieval village. Free parking nearby the apartment is quite easy. Fernanda was a perfect host during our stay (nice bottle of wine at the arrival). She was also very useful before our arrival providing us very detailed information about her apartment. Thank you Fernanda for everything!

Fernanda's place is beautiful...better than advertised. Spectacular views toward Umbria from both bedrooms. Fernanda was very helpful and communicated with us throughout, even though she was away while we were there. Montepulciano is a charming walled village surrounded by vineyards. Outstanding in every regard!

This was a great place to stay. A good location, 50 yards off the main (virtually pedestrianised) street that leads through town to the top and Piazza Grande. Though it's quite a long uphill walk to the piazza, it's a little more buzzing around here and the location is also very convenient for car parking in the free car parks just outside the walls. The flat itself is very nice, in a charming old family home. Prettily decorated with some lovely furniture, the bathroom was modern and kitchen well-equipped. There are two sets of stairs but my 80 year old father found them fine. There is an impressive view towards Lake Trasimeno. Fernanda was great in advance with instructions etc and we were met by a neighbour when we arrived at around 11pm who showed us round and made us welcome, and saw us off when we left. Absolutely smooth organisation-wise. A lovely place to stay in a lovely town.

I was fortunate enough to stay here for an extended period whilst I attended the Ilsasso Language School. The apartment is located inside the historic centre, close to the main gate and is on the top floor of a historic building. It is only a few minutes walk from the language school, local bakery, butcher, greengrocer, pharmacy, cafes and wine shops. Also within walking distance from the apartment are; the main piazza and cathedral (10-15 mins), local supermarket ‘Conad’ (5 mins) and free parking (10-15 mins). The apartment is well outfitted with linen, extra blankets, utensils, saucepans, spices and the owner Fernanda also kindly left oil, milk, juice and even a bottle of wine! She was kind enough to collect me from the station upon my arrival late on a Saturday afternoon and both her and her husband are excellent and kind hosts who I believe have thought of every comfort. This apartment quickly became my home away from home. It is spacious (with an 8 x seater dining table), excellent lighting and an ambience that is both ‘Tuscan’ but modern and romantic. The bathroom was wonderful, with marble floors, an excellent shower, bidet and heated towel rail. The kitchen has both an oven, 4 hob stovetop and also a microwave, sandwich grill, small fridge and washing machine! Supplied also are; iron, ironing board, clothes airer and pegs. Both bedrooms are spacious, with antique furniture and in a romantic setting. Both have spectacular views out over Tuscany towards the distant lakes (see photos). The apartment would comfortably accommodate 4 x adults plus there is a sofa-bed if needed. Montepulciano sits upon the top of hill (as do most of the historic towns within the region). The town has 360 degree views of the surrounding valleys filled with vineyards and olive groves. There are excellent hikes from the town to nearby villages e.g. Pienza and wonderful areas and pathways to simply stroll and drink in the view. This apartment made an excellent base for all my hiking on the weekends and after class. The main bus station and weekly fruit/vegetable market are 2 streets below the apartment outside the historic centre. Access to/from the historic centre is easiest via a long stairwell/elevator on the western side of the large public gardens (approx. 10 mins walk). The apartment is well heated and there is an air-conditioner and plenty of windows if travelling during summer. Items worth noting; there is no public transport on Sundays from/to the town, driving is restricted within the historic centre to residents only and there is no parking adjacent to the apartment. Utilities are expensive so turn off lights/aircon when not in apartment and in winter budget on approximately 50 Euro per week for (heating/cooking).
