I had the pleasure of staying in Apartment No. 3 at the Politian Apartments in Montepulciano for two weeks while attending language classes at the local language school (Il Sasso). The apartment is comfortable, well-appointed, well-equipped and extremely spacious. The building is situated near the top of town, convenient to most everything, but far enough removed from the tourist crowds to feel off-the-beaten-path. The owners, Giacomo and Maria (siblings) are fantastic, as is Giovanna, their assistant, and are willing to assist with any needs one might have during his stay (I was loaned a laptop to use during my visit!). Even in the heat of summer, the apartment had great ventilation and the evenings were cool and relatively bug-free. The terraced garden is quite lovely and well-maintained. My apartment came with a small, private terrace with a dining table and chairs, and I spent many an evening sipping wine and enjoying the beauty of the garden below. I also found the garden a great place to meet and visit with other tenants during my stay. Before my arrival and upon my arrival, the owners provided a wealth of information regarding the history of the palazzo, local restaurant recommendations, and points of interest, both in the town and the surrounding region. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I highly recommend the Politian Apartments and know I will stay there again in the future!
