What a beautiful spot Montepulciano is in Tuscany. The location of The Beautiful Sun apartment is just outside the old town of Montepulciano and easy walking distance to wander through the steep lanes lined with restaurants, shops and wine /produce. Location of the apartment is within walking distance of the bus terminal and you can use the Orange bus for E1.50 to also get into the old town. We organised a private driver to take us to Contona about 30 minutes away where the film Under The Tuscany Sun was filmed. Another beautiful town perched on the side of the hill ...old with beautiful lanes and great shops. Elias at The Beautiful Sun apartment is a great host and we found the apartment to be lspacious,clean and good location.
The apartment is beautiful, and well-located. It was clean and nicely appointed for our party of four (two couples). Elias is a wonderful host, introducing us to the area, recommending restaurants, and checking to be sure all was in order. We would highly recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Montepulciano.
We originally wished we were staying up in the old part of town, but realized how easy it was to get there, and had the advantage of being much easier to explore other areas, as well, we realized this was a perfect location. We toured surrounding towns, including Montalcino, Pienza, and La Foce, and explored as far away as Pisa and Volterra. We enjoyed the Contucci Restaurant (one of Elias' recommendations). We loved our stay!
The location was easy to find with a supermarket close by. Apartment is large, in good shape and well cleaned. Free parking 150 meters from the house and 3 minutes from the old city center. Nice and easy!
Elias (the owner) was very helpful and also gave us good hints on other towns to visit.
The apartment has no air conditioning, and with the hottest June in recent history this made it a bit difficult to get the place cool enough for sleeping.
The Beautiful Sun apartment has been our "home away from home" in Montepulciano on 2 trips to Tuscany. Elias Mele is an exemplary host who is attentive to every detail to ensure the apartment meets all of your needs. The apartment is large, beautiful and well appointed. My friend and I have traveled to Europe every year for the last 8 years and rent apartments all over Italy and France. The Beautiful Sun is, by far the most beautiful!! Thank you, Elias for another welcoming visit and stay in Montepulciano!!! I know we will meet again........
We stayed at Elias's apartment for two nights and enjoyed it a lot. The apt is bright, spacious, and spotless. Elias is a great host and excellent communicator. He showed us everything, recommended places to visit, and checked how everything was going. The beds are very comfy and the kitchen is equipped with everything if you wish to have light cooking during your stay. I highly recommend this place!
We're surprised by the apartment for this price. It's so nice! It's big enough for our whole family, the beds are comfortable, kitchen is modem style, bath rooms are very clean, everything is perfect for living! And the location is super good, 2 mins walking to the supermarket where you can but almost everything ; 3 mins by walking to the main bus station where you can go to the nearby city's very easily. And, the view from the window is so nice~ Elias welcomed us the first day when we arrived and then left the house to us, it's like our own place. It's just a pity we could just stay 1 week, next time will make it longer!
Excellent apartment thank you Elias
