My wife and myself have just spent the last 5 days at Meuble il Riccio, Firstly Thanks to Host Gio and his lovely wife Ivana. they make you feel so welcome, Montepulciano is the most amazing place, It is unbelievably beautiful, the surrounding area is incredible, There is peace and quiet in the hotel (home) of Gio and Ivana, breakfast is a delight, with Ivana's pastries etc. If you go to Tuscany, there home is always the place to stay.
We hired a car in Florence and drove down, which we would recommend to anyone, as the surrounding district is absolutely beautiful, get a GPS, and it will make your travels easier.
Il Riccio lives up to the reviews of previous guests and more. Fond memory's of Gio and Ivana and Montepulciano will live in our hearts forever
