My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon at the suggestion of our friend who has been coming here for years. Thank goodness for that recommendation! From beginning to end, the stay was fantastic. Our host Giulio is a cut above the rest. He made sure everything was perfect. We will certainly be coming back.

What a special place with wonderful views. We wanted sunset views and the outdoor sitting area, so we reserved a room in the second building, next to the main inn building. The rooms are more spacious in the main building, but the outdoor sitting area and sunset views were wonderful from our room. Giulio, the innkeeper, was incredibly attentive and... More

This review is very belated. My wife and I stayed at Podere Dionora in late May this year with our daughter and her boyfriend. There was a bit of e-mailing back and forth when we were making our booking and my daughter sent me an e-mail saying "Giulio sounds like a champ". And so he was. We had two of... More

If you do not get the time to read my full review let me tell you up front that this should be the #1 PLACE TO STAY in not just Montepulciano...but in ALL OF TUSCANY!!!!! I am a hard critic but me and my wife could not have asked for a better experience, a better setting, and a better friend/manager... More

The biggest mistake we made was to book only one night and we will definitely be returning. This was an oasis of calm. Hidden away just a short drive from the A1 and five minutes from Montepulciano Dionora is a gem. The property looks out over rolling Tuscan countryside to Pienza, a view you can soak in as you relax... More

Immaculate property in a perfect location. Host/Owner Giorgio is a real pro and wealth of information. He made the best coffee we had in Italy every morning with breakfast (also very good) - an impressive claim considering the amount of coffee we drank across the country during our 2 week vacation!

My wife and I stayed at Podere Dionora from Nov 4-8 and felt that it was the best lodging experience we have had in more than 25 years visiting Italy. The setting is breathtaking---a beautifully restored farmhouse and separate 3 unit stone building----views over the tuscan countryside ---memorable sunsets---completely private setting in the hills near Montepulciano, with views to Pienza-----surrounded...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in Dionora. It would most suit couples who appreciate piece and quiet rather than families. The pool was glorious, the service was unobtrusive and of very high quality. Montepulciano is my favourite town in Tuscany and a great variety of restaurants are only a 10 minute drive away. A very romantic spot. I... More

Returned to Dionora for our wedding anniversary we have been visiting since 2004! This is a truly wonderful place, stunning views, swimming pool and rooms. Real attention to detail with marvellous linens and towels, beautiful furniture and rooms. But what makes the place really special is the staff, led by Giulio. Nothing is too much trouble, recommendations and bookings made... More
