About the property

1 bedroom, sofa-bed in living room, 1 bathroom, sleeps 3

13th century lovely studio apartment nicely restored in the town centre, 2 min by walk to the main street from which you can easily walk up to the Cathedral in Piazza Grande or you can dip down across the several narrows streets enjoying the beautiful palaces, churches and typical shops. This apartment was born like a painting studio for my father who had loved Montepulciano, for all his life, more than everything else for the breathtaking views of the countryside, the quietness and obviously the good vine. Cunningly reorganized by my mom, the apartment retains the original features such as wooden beamed ceiling and open fireplace. If you are looking for peacefulness, relax and something pure, you should come and try this lovely accommodation! The best is for people who love the artworks and who like to find out and enjoy every secret corner of this beautiful town as well as taste the special feeling of the ancient world.

About Valeria

I'm still a young lady who loves Montepulciano and the Tuscany countryside!

Born in the close town of Città della Pieve, I spent my childhood in this area.

The life brought me far away for several years but later I came back with my husband who loved Montepulciano, for all his life, more than everything else not only for the breathtaking views of the countryside but also for the quietness and obviously the good vine.

He was a doctor with the great hobby of painting and this apartment was his painting studio! This is the reason why we still call it "my atelier".

With my brother-in-law, I reorganized the apartment to become a cozy and enjoyable accommodation for everybody who is looking for peacefulness and relax, tasting the special feeling of the ancient world.

I love travelling around the world and meet new people.

I speak Italian and French and my daughter Elisa is helping me with English and Spanish.

I'm personally taking care of the apartment and I usually welcome all the renters at their arrival.

If you love history, the artworks and the peacefulness, you have to come and enjoy this lovely accommodation!

I'll be more than happy to provide you any information about Montepulciano and the Tuscany' countryside!

Valeria purchased this apartment in 1985

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this comfortable apartment at the top of Montepulciano for five nights in late October. The location was perfect for getting anywhere around the town in a few minutes. The weather was beautifully warm for sightseeing and the food and wine was spectacular. The apartment felt very spacious for a studio, it was very clean and the character was just charming. It felt like a home not a hotel room.

Great, cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dear Valeria and Elisa,

Thank you for letting us stay at your apartment. We stayed in October, for a week. Your apartment was everything we needed. Cosy, but still spacious enough to sit and relax during the evening. A few times we cooked ourselves and that went great. The only two things that people might miss is a bigger oven, and an oven dish, but that is no problem of course.

We also very much appreciated all your kind help on for instance how to arrive, getting to know Montepulciano and for bringing us to the bus station when we left. We definitely recommend your apartment to anyone looking for a good place to stay in Montepulciano.

Thank you!

All the best,

Emilie and Johan (Holland)

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was charming and we loved that it was a former art studio, filled with old art books. Montepulciano and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. Valeria was kind, helpful, and all communication was easy. Highly recommend!

Very charming and cozy apartment conveniently located near the main plaza in Montepulciano

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Valeria's apartment for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! It was incredibly convenient to everything in Montepulciano- never more than a 10 minute walk. The apartment was in a quiet area, very comfortable, clean, and well appointed..though the interior lighting was a little dark at night. Elisa and Valeria were very nice and gave us great directions to navigate our way to the apartment. This apartment is perfect for two people, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Pearl of 14th century, Montepulciano, lies to the southeast of Siena, on the top of one of the hills that separates the Valdichiana from the Val d’Orcia that was recently recognized by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage for the breathtaking landscapes celebrated by Renaissances’ painters. Originally Etruscan, Montepulciano preserve an 8th century fortress and medieval churches and palazzos. Chiefly known for its wine, Montepulciano offers excellent restaurants, café’s, wine-bars and shops. In July and August the town becomes a stage of live festivals with the International Arts Workshop, the local 'Bruscello' and the 'Bravio delle Botti' with a spectacular barrel race. It's an ideal base for discovering the wonderful Tuscany with Pienza, Montalcino, Chiusi, Bagno Vignoni (hot springs water) all between 14/35km of scenic drives. Siena 65 km and Perugia 67 Km. Easily reachable from the major airports of Florence and Rome, is one of the most unspoiled countryside in Italy, enjoy it!
