I have just returned from a month long trip in Italy and my favorite hotel was Meuble Il Riccio in Montepulciano. The room was beautifully updated with attention to detail. The courtyard was beautiful and lovely flowers abounded everywhere. Our room had a lovely balcony which overlooked the Tuscan valley. The owners Gio and Ivana were very gracious and made us feel as though we were at home. Don't miss this hotel if you are in the Tuscan area!!
