“Charming apartment in historic town”
Reviewed March 26, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This small apartment is full of character and set within the city walls. Comfy bed, good shower and adequate kitchen facilities. Good heating - important because it was chilly when we were there. Easy access to town attractions, and a good centre for driving through beautiful Tuscany. Two drawbacks - the only seating is the cane chairs as seen in the photos which are not comfortable for relaxing after sightseeing days. And there are 108 steps from the car park to the apartment which we found quite challenging after a lot of walking - we are in our 60's but fit. It felt like an authentic Italian experience. Elias the host is warm and welcoming and very helpful - even posting on something we left behind!

Hello, many thanks for your beautiful review! It has been nice to host you and having some nice chat! Thanks also for your constructive critics that I always accept with respect and take into account. However, please allow me to gently answer to the drawbacks that I think are subjective: I am sorry for the chairs you have found not comfortable but it also depends on the persons , as an example other people have found them nice and comfy just after your stay to be honest.But of course I am considering to change them of making them more comfy. Regarding the steps, I did not know they are 108 steps but it is maximum 5 minutes walking up and about 1 min. walking down and about 150 meters. Alternatively you have another ways that is about 250 meters and not stairs and with less slope. Montepulciano is at the top of a little Mountain and then is always uphill or downhill. It is not possible to park inside the old town because of the historical restrictions, but that parking is probably the best, safe and the closest. However, many thanks for your stay and your advice that I repeat I accept with pleasure. Wish you all the best!

““Feels Like Having Your Own Home in the Best Possible Location””
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Elias, the owner, greeted us at the parking lot outside the city walls. He helped us load our luggage into his car, drove us to apartment and then willingly listened to our interests and then provided suggestions on what to see and do. Elias is a very gracious and enthusiastic host and wants to make you comfortable in his home and city. We loved the apartment, an easy walk up one flight of stairs. Comfortable bed always appreciated at the end of a long day of walking. We cooked there some nights but also took Elias' recommendation to eat at a place where "locals" eat, the mother makes the pasta by hand in the kitchen. It was great. We loved the town walking up and down the streets and alleys, spending time sitting in Piazza Grande, going in and out of churches and shops. The Tuscan view is absolutely breathtaking almost unbelievable from many places in Montepulciano. We went to de'Ricci Wine Cellar and we highly recommend it. The cellar is amazing and the hostess was most gracious explaining the wine and letting us taste it. The wine is magnificent. Took a day trip to Sienna which was nice. We got lost, but the scenery was so very beautiful we didn't mind at all. We very much appreciate the time Elias took to tell us about Montepulciano and the surrounding area and all the suggestions he made of things to do and see. The apartment is a well executed and appropriate renovation in an historic building. He and his father were working on renovating two other apartments in the building at the time we were there and my husband, a retired architect, was so pleased to have the opportunity see the quality of their work and how sensitive they were to restoring an ancient building. Montepulciano was truly the highlight of our trip! We can't wait to go back. Nancy & Jay, Saratoga Springs, NY USA

“AMAZING”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Let me start off by saying tonight is our last night and we felt so compelled to write a review that we decided to do it now as not forget exactly how incredible our stay was. We found "Little Arch of Memories" last minute due to a cancelation and boy were we lucky! It is extreamly clean and and super cozy! The only reason it does not feel exactly like home is because we are missing our dog! The bed is comfortable, the water pressure is fabulous and the overall aesthetic is outstanding. Elias provided us with everything we requested and checked up on us to make sure we were happy. The apartment is perfectly located in town and Montepulciano is a great jump off point to see more of Tuscany and Umbria! We are day 13 of our 18 day trip and this has been the highlight by far! Highly recommended for couples and even family's because there is another appartment below. Xoxo MMM&GBC
