My wife and I just stayed at the La Locanda San Francesco B&B to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. After a long day traveling in from London, we were met with a gracious smile, two glasses of wine, and appetizers (provided by co-owner and ladies' fan favorite bartender Luca) as we relaxed in...

My husband and I spent five nights at La Locanda San Francesco. We LOVED it. The hotel is small, beautiful, well kept and in a perfect location to explore Tuscany. Luca and Cinzia are gracious and helpful hosts. Christian, Cassandra and Denise made sure that we had everything we needed. Grazie a tutti per una bella vacanza. Speriamo tornare!

My wife and I stayed at the La Locanda di San Francesco for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It lived up to all of the previous reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm not sure what more I could add other than it was, and probably always will be, the most unique hotel and the most unique setting that we've ever stayed... More

This was our second time staying at la Locanda. We stayed one night 5 years ago during our honeymoon, having found out about it from Cinzia's sister during our winery tour at Tenuta Valdipietta. The place is just amazing. From the time you walk into the wine bar, "E Lucevan Le Stelle", you are almost "hugged" by their welcoming atmosphere,... More

On our three weeks touring Italy in April 2015 we stayed in a number of good hotels. Locanda San Francesco in Montepulciano became, however, our big favourite. Beautiful location right on the top of everything - what a view! Lovely, spacious, modern rooms, big bathroom. Breakfast table impeccable - second to none. Last but not least: Cinzia, the owner, and... More

This was our second stay at La Locanda. We planned our entire trip around the 4 nights we could get in the suite here. It was worth that effort, once again. Cinzia is the absolutely consummate hostess. Helpful, friendly although not at all obtrusive, and she definitely thinks of everything. From the complimentary glass of wine while sitting down and...

This is a fabulous place to stay in Montepulciano, right on top with a look-out view. There is a restaurant/bar/wine bar downstairs...and some nights, it doubles as a jazz venue. The owner, Cinzia, was the nicest, friendliest and most helpful person...she made us feel almost like family. Would definitely return to both Montepulciano (so quaint and charming) and to this...

We visited La Locanda di San Francesco with another couple and from the moment we entered the door we were made welcome, initially by Christian the barman and then by the owner Cynthia who gave us an informative introduction to the village of Montepulciano and it's restaurants.

We absolutely loved La Locanda di San Francesco and can't imagine a better place to spend 3 nights in stunning Montepulciano. Owner Cinzia is extremely gracious and a pleasure to talk to. Her B&B is simply superb and we hope to return soon!

This is a small and absolutely lovely hotel in Montepulciano. Cinzia, the proprietor, has paid attention to every detail in her decorations and the views are stunning. Cinzia was prompt and thorough in her communications with me during the planning stages of our trip and went to great lengths to help me when a pilot strike delayed our arrival. We... More
