Right off the main piazza at the very top of this hilltop wine-town, the Mueble il Riccio is definitely a "find". Our Superior Room had a balcony with a stunning view over the tile rooftops of Montepulciano and the Tuscan countryside. Very comfortable, well-appointed room. Quiet. The common-room where breakfast is served feels like the main room of an old villa. It is a very open, airy room, with natural lighting. Homemade breakfast pastries baked by hostess Ivana are delicious! The host couple live on-site, and this is very apparent from the care and professionalism with which they run their small inn. Gio welcomes guests to "my home" on arrival. He and Ivana obviously take great pride in their establishment and making their guests feel comfortable and "at-home".
A highlight of our stay was a picnic lunch on our balcony, complete with the famous local Vino Nobile wine.
