When I was looking for a place to stay in Montepulciano, I was sure that I wanted a place up in town. During my research, however, I came across a picture of the view from Montorio and I knew I would regret it if we didn't stay there. So stay there we did. My husband and I stayed for two... More

For the semi-independent traveler, Montorio is THE place to stay in Tuscany!! For an authentic, historic and welcoming place, Montorio is perfection. Our "apartment" in this lovely villa was spacious and well designed with a small kitchen perfect for breakfasts and the occasional dinner after being inspired by the wonderful Tuscan cuisine. There is a fantastic fruit/vegetable market and a... More

Great location! You can be completely alone, in the morning on the territory I met a roedeer. At the same time the historical centre of Montepulciano is in a walking distance. Many picturesque villages, wineries, termal springs within 20-30 minutes drive on the scenic roads. The apartment is comfortable, clean, have all the necessary for a comfortable stay. The owner...

Our arrival at Montorio was delayed, but manager, Stephania, was more than happy to stay to greet us regardless. From the moment we stepped out of the car at almost sunset, we felt in another world. Montorio is in a strikingly beautiful part of the country on the top of a hill. We often had afternoon drinks in the garden... More

We stayed at Montorio at the end of August. We were greeted by the owner, Stefania, who was very friendly and welcoming and gave us a map of Montepulciano with lots of tips regarding shopping, eating and drinking. It just so happened that when we arrived there was a violin and piano concerto at Stefania's other residence, a lovely boutique... More

My husband and I will return to Montorio. The setting, our apartment, the views, fragrances from the massive wild rosemary, olive trees and flowers all exceeded our expectations.

Montorio sits on a small hill with beautiful views, right next to Montepulciano, which is a few minutes drive (with easy parking) or a steep walk. The house and gardens are great, the only thing missing is a pool maybe for in summer. The apartment was big, nicely decorated, and even has a kitchen (why cook in Italy though?). It's... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Montorio is an ancient residence constructed in 1300. The story goes that perhaps it was originally a convent inhabited by brothers who chose this suggestive and contemplative position in front of the parish Church of Santa Maria, in whose place today rises the Tempio di San Biagio, a work of Antonio da Sangallo the Elder, built in the 1500’s. At the end of the ’90’s, the property was in a complete state of abandon and decay, when my family bought this beautiful ruin, and which today has become a fascinating and elegant holiday house. Your unique locationSitting on a hill at the foot of Montepulciano, it has in front of it the imposing Church of San Biagio, behind it you see the gentle Sienese hills , with their beautiful vineyards, olive groves and wheat fields. Art, history, nature meet at Montorio, which with its exclusive position offers you the privilege of a stay in a country house on a step from the town. Today Montorio is subdivided into apartments, each one with an independent entrance, furnished in a Tuscan style, restrained and elegant. Each one has been given a name of an illustrious personality that has given prestige and splendor to this jewel of the Renaissance today called the ‘Pearl of the 1500’s’.To ensure privacy to our guests, at the entrance of the property there is a gate that we keep closed and at the time of check in we will provide our guests of a remote control ... more   less
