We were just amazed with our luck as soon as got up the stairs and he opened the door for us. Our flat was enormous! Myself, my wife and our teenage daughter: 2 bedrooms upstairs with double-beds each and another bedroom downstairs with a double-bed. 2 bathrooms: upstairs with a jacuzzi bathtub and joining doors to both bedrooms; downstairs with a tiny shower with horizontal jets.

The kitchen was a lot more than a kitchenette with a full stove and amenities. A nice dining area where we ate often.

There is a big living room with 2 sofas where we spent most of our time. An old television is in the room with a fuzzy satellite reception. But that's not why we were there on holiday.

The windows look directly over the road leading to the Piazza Grande (via Ricci) with a great view of the Piazza itself. On one of our nights there was a big exclusive show at the Piazza which was closed off to any but paying customers. We got to watch the show from the comfort of our window sill, for free, right up to the fireworks!

Montepulciano, and this apartment, are not for the weak-legged. The town is nothing but hills, very steep ones, and the hotel/piazza is on the top which means it's always an uphill walk home and then we had about 4 flights of stairs as our apartment was at the top.

Breakfast is included and is a very simple affair (orange juice, biscuits, Italian croissants and your choice of real coffee prepared on demand). We had capuccino each morning and took it up to the tables with an amazing view over the hills.

The staff was one extreme or the other: either they spoke excellent English or they could not speak or understand a word of it.

Free parking is also included which is priceless as Montepulciano is impossible for parking. We left the car in the parking for most of the week, a 2-minute walk down the street at the piazza Francesco, and appreciated not having to worry about it.

Free wireless Internet, working throughout the apartment, is also included and we had iPads, iPhones, iPod Touches and laptops all working.

We left a day earlier than expected and "la Padrona" was kind enough to knock off a night from our bill which was already very reasonable (200 Euros per night, in high season, for the week).

My wife and I made a trip through the Toscana and we stayed at various places. Among the different hotels we had chosen the Osteria del Borgo was the absolute highlight.

First of all Montepulciano is one of the loveliest and most romantic places in the Toscana: a small medieval town, perched on the top of a hill. Most people will know it (or better its Palazzo Comunale) as stand in for the city of Volterra in the blockbuster movie "Twilight: New Moon".

Secondly, the Osteria del Borgo is right at the centre of this fantastic place. It offers four spacious flats. Ours had a full-fledged kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom with jacuzzi. The rooms were clean and furnished with antique looking furniture which gave the room a cosy, yet elegant feel. Montepulciano is very calm at night so that we caught our well deserved sleep.

The room rate (we payed EUR 100 per night) included Italian breakfast, i.e. coffee and cake, brioches. The Osteria is not a restaurant, but offers simple, yet very good dishes (sandwiches and pasta).

The Osteria offers free parking about 100 yards down the road in front of a church, but travellers beware: Montepulciano is a maze of one-way streets and our GPS receiver got it all wrong.

We had two wonderful nights and enjoyed Montepulciano and all the wonderful locations nearby.

We stayed here for only one night and wished we could have stayed longer. Our wonderful room was simply gorgeous and down one step was a small living area with the most beautiful view of the the Tuscan hills out of two nice-sized windows. The people were very warm and friendly and the food in the restaurant on the terrace with the same gorgeous views was some of the best we had in Tuscany. The room was only 80Euros a night. We stayed in Radda at a place that was 4 times as much and offered neither the views, the charm and the great food of the del Borgo.

Our apartment was very roomy and cozy and had a sleeping room and two bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi. It seems very recently renovated. Initially we had booked for two days, but liked the apartment so much that we extended the stay for two more days.
The upper apartment has a view, and the sunset in the restaurant terrace was spectacular.
The place is run by a small family. They do not speak English very well, so you will probably need to get directions and tips from another place.
