We have just completed a thoroughly enjoyable 2 day stay with Gio and Ivana and left extremely happy and very impressed. We had high expectations based upon the very positive reviews and the Meuble Il Riccio lived up to them in every respect. The property is steeped in Tuscan charm and benefits from a prime location just off the main Piaza at the highest point of the town.
We were met with a very warm welcome from Gio and Ivana and our immediate impressions were of a meticulously kept and spotlessly clean house, tastefully decorated in a traditional way but at the same time with modern amenities such as free wifi, unobtrusive air-conditioning and some truly impressive coffee machines!
Our room was impressively large with high ceilings, tasteful furnishings and an immaculate bathroom. Best of all though was the balcony which afforded us a truly stunning view over the Tuscan countryside around Montepulciano as well as over some of the town itself. The room was situated just off the main dining area which gave us some initial misgivings about noise but these proved unfounded as the doors are heavy and well made and we heard next to nothing.
Gio and Ivana are rightly proud of their house - the care and emotional investment that they have poured into it over many years is plain to see and they extend that investment to their guests. They are warm and helpful without being obtrusive and Gio's restaurant recommendations were excellent for both nights. We would not hesitate to recommend this Accomodation to anyone thinking of staying in Montepulciano - you definitely will not regret it. Grazie, Gio and Ivana.
