“Our wonderful week in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I am a little late writing my review of our wonderful week at Sant' Antonio in May'12!! We stayed in the wonderful one bedroom apartment within the walls of Montepulciano!! We can't even begin to express how unbelievable our stay was!! The apartment has been recently renovated and everything is exceptional!! Even though the apartment is in the "city", it was extremely quiet. The furnishings are just beautiful.. Huge bathroom with awesome tub and walk in shower.. There is a lovely terrace which overlooks the Tuscan countryside and we spent many hours out there enjoying the view and sipping the vino!!

My wife and I stayed at Sant'Antonio for five days on our recent honeymoon in Italy. Nico, the owner, was amazing, and helped us tremendously both prior to our stay and after our arrival in Montepulciano. We rented one of Nico's apartments inside the Montepulciano city walls. The one-bedroom apartment was absolutely gorgeous. Everything was recently redone, and every detail was perfect. The apartment was very spacious. Our favorite part was the beautiful terrace that overlooks the Tuscan countryside. We spent many afternoons having an apertivo, as we gazed at the beautiful rolling hills and vineyards below.

In addition to being a great host, we also learned that Nico is a former runner and currently coaches elite runners. As avid (although ameteur) runners ourselves, this was great to know. We really enjoyed discussing running with Nico and truly appreciated his tips on running routes around Montepulciano. One morning we ran along a trail from Montepulciano to the neighboring town of Montechiello. It was truly one of the most scenic runs we have ever taken. Montepulciano (and specifically Sant'Antonio) is a great place to visit if you are like us and enjoy getting in a beautiful run on your vacation.

We can't say enough about how wonderful our time was in Montepulciano, which was due in no small part to Nico and his wonderful apartment. We highly recommend it to anyone.

This was an amazing, peaceful place. We loved everything about it. Easy access to so many places, and clean, with super comfortable beds. We stayed in unit 4 and would do so again if we ever get another chance to travel to Italy. Views from every room, even the bathroom. It was a treat to have a shower and look out over the rolling Tuscan hills.
Nico was wonderful, helpful, but not at all "in the way"
Any questions we had were addressed promptly, effeciently and courteously.
Pool was lovely, but a little cold in May, so we had a wonderful day of our stay just sitting around it.
Great restaurants nearby, and plenty of good walking and hiking on Nico's property.
Couldn't recommend a nicer place to stay, very reasonably priced.
Thank you Nico for making our holiday wonderful!
We loved it!

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 4, which was a large apartment with 2 bedrooms and fabulous views from every room...

We spent a wonderful week traveling in Tuscany with our base at Sant'Antonio near Montepulciano. The owner Nico and his staff made everything about our stay perfect. Our private cottage was extremely comfortable. We felt like being home from the first moment we settled in. We cooked in our apartment, built fires to warm us on cool Tuscan evenings and enjoyed sipping wine watching sunsets from our patio. The surroundings were peaceful and relaxing. The location is near all Tuscan sites. Nico pointed us to the best places to visit in the region - we went to all of them! We definitely recommend Sant'Antonio to anyone visiting Tuscany. Use it as your base and explore!

Hubby and I spent an outstanding week in March 2012 at Sant' Antonio. The property is beyond beautiful, Nico and Elena are fabulous hosts, and the apartment was comfortable and well stocked. We stayed in the Signorelli cottage and were lucky with the weather conditions -- we were able to enjoy throwing open the beautiful big windows during the day to let the breeze blow in and snuggle with the fire at night. Great location to make home base and explore the charming hill towns that surround the area (which we did). Nico gave us two restaurant recommendations (Restaurante La Briciola and Ai Quattro Venti), both of which were outstanding. There is also a very nice little family-run pizza place just down the road from Sant' Antonio. The views from this property are unbeatable. Nico and Elena have done a wonderful job of creating an ambiance of true Tuscany with all the amenities one would expect in a high-end resort. We will be recommending the property to friends and family headed to the Tuscany region.

Room Tip: Signorelli cottage offers more privacy, but none of the rooms are on top of each other.

My wife and I have travelled far and wide, and our time recently at Sant'Angelo in Montepulciano was truly an extraordinary experience. It has it all; wonderful period buildings with 1st rate amenities and comfort, Incredible vistas of the Tuscan countryside, and all within easy driving distances to the classic hiil top towns of Montalcino, Piensa, or Cortona, and the cities of Siena or even Firenze. The owners, Nico and Elena, are wonderful hosts, and were full of local travel tips and advice to make our stay even better. And we'll never forget our little friend...Caio. When we return to this glorious part opf the world, Sant'Angelo will be our 1st choice.

My wife Ellen and I have stayed at Sant’ Antonio twice in the last 4 years, and we’re heading back again this June. We can’t wait. This will be our 3rd time traveling to Italy, and we can’t imagine visiting this beautiful country without staying here once again.
As incredible as all of the reviews here may sound, they are all so very true. It all starts with the hosts, Nico and Elena, and their wonderful family. They are the perfect hosts, and so helpful and welcoming to everyone. While Nico may not speak every known language, it sure seems that he comes close. The recommendations we’ve been given for restaurants and wineries have been incredible. Instead of being guided toward expensive tourist traps, we’ve ate at what had to be some of the best little family-run places you can imagine. Delicious food at surprisingly reasonable prices. I’ve been craving pizza from Tre Stelle and the ravioli at Da Fiorella since we left, and Osteria Acquacheta will be our first stop for lunch in Montepulciano. I never knew food could taste so good.
Sant’ Antonio is a converted monastery with only 13 rooms, and it’s located in the perfect spot from which to explore Tuscany. The grounds are immaculate, the swimming pool is great after a day of sightseeing and it’s so peaceful and quiet. You won’t be disappointed.
