Ortaglia was perfect for our 6 night Tuscan stay in May this year. Located just outside one of Tuscany's favourite (but not yet over-run with tourists) hill towns, Montepulciano itself is breath-taking. It has a history, presence and charm that just can't be missed. The weather was unseasonably freezing for May, but when we arrived at Ortaglia, our host, Terenzio's warmth made it easy to forget the cold and the gray. In fact Terenzio welcomed us like family. Along with three other couples, we toured some of the region with Terenzio as our guide on our second day and what can I say other than we laughed, marvelled at monuments, ate and drank (ohhh, the wine) like never before. Ortaglia's breakfasts were so memorable, I even took a photo of beautiful Illy at the breakfast table she set (with love) for us every morning. This place is charming, romantic, warm, welcoming and brilliantly located (especially if you have a car and are using it as a base to explore). We even had one day of sensational warmth and spent it by the pool! Yes, they have a pool! We'll have to return in summer next time. Oh and it was pristinely clean with super comfortable beds.
