Cinza and Luca were outstanding hosts. The wide selection for breakfast was perfect way to start each day. We picked up a wonderful Rome tour guide tip from a couple from Texas while eating one morning. We had a sick person in our group of 4 and Cinza arranged for a doctor to come onsite and spend an hour with that person, amazing, but just a small sample of how wonderful the hosts are. They can offer alternative places to checkout and visit and the wine bar is a great way to end the day. We slept wonderful in the beds and the views from the rooms; something we'll never forget. The only thing I regret was our 4-night stay wasn't longer. Thank you for helping make our first European trip so memorable; you have a wonderful place.

Everything about this place is perfect! Accommodations , food at wine bar, location, view, and most especially the owners. Loved it even more the second time around and can't wait to return again. Make La Locanda your base for visiting Montepulciano and the surrounding countryside. Our absolute favorite place to stay in all of Italy!

My husband and I stayed in this Locanda on our honeymoon. We loved every minute of it. We had an excellent view from our room. Everything was perfect. Upon arrival we were welcomed with a glass of wine. The wine bar is an excellent addition. We ended up purchasing a case of wine to ship back home and Cinza and Luca were very helpful. Cinza was more than willing to set up reservations, arrange taxi's, etc. She also provided gluten free bread and crackers for breakfast, after I had informed her I was gluten intolerant. It was the perfect addition to our stay in Montepulciano. My husband and I have already decided that we will definitely be staying here again in the future.

If you stay in Montepulciano, you must stay here! We made the mistake of walking from the bus station (don't do this if you don't want to climb up the hills) but the reward of reaching La Locanda di San Francesco at the top was worth it. Cinza sat with us and gave us a glass of wine when we arrived and told us her favorite restaurants and shops for us to visit during our stay. There was a computer for everyone to use which was nice. We had mentioned we were staying for our anniversary trip and we were given a bottle of wine with a personalized note in our room - what a great touch! The rooms were nice and we had great views of Montepulciano from ours. Breakfast was very nice with a great spread of fruit, pastries, cereals, etc. We had a really great night in Montepulciano, especially thanks to La Locanda!

Thank you Cinza for your warm welome and personal attenttion to details with every aspect of our stay. This boutique B&B is amazing. Our room was perfect with beautiful views and Cinza attention to details with every aspect of our stay was fantastic. The wine bar was great to come home to and have a glass of wine after a long day and enjoy winding down in a very relaxed atmosphere. We would highly recommend La Locanda di San Francesco to all and look forward tooo returning one day.

Room Tip: An amazing town - a must for everyone to enjoy

My husband and I stayed yet again in this beautifull Locanda and enjoyed ever minute of our 4 night stay. As this was our 3rd visit we hoped we would not be disappointed but Cinzia and Luca and there staff gave us a warm welcome and looked after us just as well as our previous stays. We stayed in the suite again with its fantastic views. We spent our days exploring the beautifull region and arriving back in the late afternoon to enjoy sitting in on the terrace of the wine bar which accompanies the Locanda drinking some of the best wine we have tasted on our many visits to Tuscany. Thank you again Cinzia and Luca and hope to see you both again next year.

Room Tip: Any of the 4 Rooms would be great
