Last year we stayed with Gio and Ivana, who took great care of me during a bout with the flu. I was so humbled by their caring that we had to go back and see them during our most recent trip. It was like coming home to family. Their B&B is charming, comfortable and welcoming. Ivana makes the most delicious breakfast and cappuccinos with a smile. We brought a small gift of a hedgehog (or Riccio) statue; I will never forget the look of joy on Ivana's face. We know we can always come back and visit and feel so welcomed. This is a great property, well run with an incredible location and Ivana's pastry. If you're going to stay in Montepulciano. don't stay anywhere else. If our travels take us back to Italy again, we will certainly stop to see our friends!!
