Torre Montefollonico is a magnificent two bedroom apartment in a castle in the tiny hilltop village of Montefollonico. This unique and romantic home has two bedrooms, a library, and a 12th century fairy tale tower with private rooftop patio. This is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of Vino Nobile as the sun sets on the wondrous horizon. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of wonderful antiques and the best in Italian modern design. This is a large spacious apartment with a high ceiling dining room with exposed beams and new high end kitchen appliances. There is a DSL high-speed internet connection and Wi-Fi for your convenience.
Torre Montefollonico is within 15 minutes by car from Pienza, Unesco Heritage site and Montepulciano, two of the best regarded Tuscan towns. While the apartment is in the village and provides the convenience of a 5 minute walk to four great restaurants, including the NY Times reviewed La Chiusa, with an ATM, pharmacy, and food stores, the setting is pastoral. You will hear sheep bells and watch sparrows wheel about from your patio. You can walk for miles through olive trees and vineyards near Monte Oliveto, Bagno Vignoni, and Moltacino.
We stayed at the Tuscan Tower for one week of a three week visit to Italy to
celebrate my 60th birthday. We chose this property because of the views,
the comfortable beds and linens and because it was located in a small
village with several local restaurants. We wanted to be able to come back to
the village after a day of exploring Tuscany and freshen up to go out to
dinner without having to drive. We were not disappointed. The property is
very comfortable and well tended. There are comfortable beds, nice pillows
and big thirsty towels. The kitchen is very modern and convenient. The view
from the tower is unbelievable. The village of Montefollonico is so clean and
friendly. Everyone went out of their way to help us and be cordial. The local
restaurants recommended to us by John and Wendy were excellent, La Botte
Piena, 13 Gobbi and La Chiusa.
John and Wendy have a great apartment, make the process of booking very easy and give a lot of good advice on where to visit, eat etc. Montefollonico is a lovely, quiet town with some very good restaurants and also a good base to explore the area.
We arrived in the late and in the dark, thought what a pretty town and apartment, woke up and then WOW !!! The views from the windows are great, and then you get to the Tower - 360 degree view to die for.
So thanks John and Wendy, loved the apartment and appreciated all your advice - we'll be back :)
Awesome place to stay in a quiet peaceful Tuscan hilltop town. Apartment was very rustic and had terrific views. Very clean apartment equipped with evrything you need to enjoy yourself. The restaurants in town are great and you have to stop by Inocenti winery to sample the Vino Noblie de Montepulciano. This place is very close to Pienza and Montepulciano. John was very easy to work with and supplied all the details to make our stay wonderful
We had an amazing time at the Tower. The focus of our trip to that area was to study the culinary culture, and Wendy went above and beyond to help us set up some amazing cooking classes with local chefs. The apartment and tower could not have been any better. And having 2 friends/coworkers staying there was very comfortable...very private with separate bathrooms. Can't wait to get back! Next time I'll just make sure I can stay much longer!
We had narrowed our rental options to two and so glad we chose your apartment. What a unique, wonderful experience for our family. The apartment was clean, large and exactly as described. Your welcome package was very helpful and all of your recommendations were great. Montefollonico is a charming gem of a town, and we enjoyed the nature trails through the park where we saw deer and photographed the wild orchids. The apartment was so unique in design and the torre was amazing. Thank you for your prompt and courteous communications; we will definitely recommend your apartment to our family and friends.
My wife and I spent a lovely week May 2011 at the apartment. We wanted a Tuscan adventure. Day trips to the cities, but a quiet, elegant, centrally located base. Montefollonico, is a small, friendly, hill town. There are enough restaurants to enjoy your evening without driving ( and with a short stroll home). We like to cook, and were able to enjoy a few meals at home (kitchen is adequate). The residents are amicable, but don't make their living off tourists. This is a great place for mature adults: perfect for one or two couples. Amenities are as described by other reviews, exceeding expectations. Prepare to be blown away by the view!
We rented Tuscan Towers for one week in mid-October. Everything from our initial contact with John and Wendy, to our departure, went smoothly, thanks in part to the owners who prepare a welcome package you receive ahead of time to help plan out your stay. We were all apprehensive as we drove up the winding roads to Montefollonico but as we entered the front door of the Towers we all were delighted and each went on to explore our space for the week, ending up on the tower terrace just in time for the sunset and magnificent views. What a week we had! It is such a great location to visit any of the great towns of Tuscany and then come home after a long day and relax. The 2 bedroom condo is spacious and clean, has laundry facilities and has the best towels to use we had on our trip. We enjoyed the many restaurants in Montefollonico but especially the food and friendly service of La Botte Piena, but we also cooked in 2 nights and just relaxed in the Villa. The local people are great and seem to go out of their way to help you. I must say it was the highlight of our trip and would not hesitate to recommend the place to anyone who wants to explore Tuscany. If we come back we will definitely stay here!
