“A Village in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2007

A week staying at this quirky hotel enjoying the superb tuscan countryside was not enough but then, can you ever have enough of a town which while steeped in centuries of history is still a commercial working entity not entirely reliant on tourism. The accommodation is well appointed at the Hotel Residence and the facilities modern and well maintained. For a 3 star establishment it is exceptional, and its location right in town great but be sure to book a parking spot when you book your room. Montalcino is not a place for staying in if you do not have a park and have to find somewhere outside the walls! This hotel is very small and built in keeping with the village architecture so it has small spaces and stairs not lifts but that is its charm. It is just a few metres from the town centre and all of the history of Montalcino, and there is plenty -- try reading Vanilla Beans and Brodo by Isabella Dusi to get the flavour of this wonderful hilltop town. Our room looked out over the wonderful tuscan countryside and we awoke to the sounds of the village roosters crowing with the sun streaming in our window - bliss. Montalcino is one of the premier wine growing regions of Italy and a visit here would not be complete without sampling Brunello di Montalcino. Its not cheap but then no top quality wine is. Italy is blessed with lots of great towns and villages to visit but this has to rank with the very best of the hilltowns. It is within a bus ride of Siena and not much further to Florence. With the car it is within striking distance of the coast and Elba, and the other way quite close to the towns of Umbria but you can profitably leave the car and take some walks around the town wall and the fortezza, around the town streets and even into the countryside to the 11th century abbey at Sant'Antimo - you can catch the bus back to town. The hotel website gives an accurate representation of its offerings, and as a base for a visit to Montalcino and the surrounding country it would be hard to beat.
I guess if you are looking for 5 star city hotel this would not be your cup of tea but if you need a relaxing break from the hurlyburly then you would find this place soothing to the soul, and yes it does have a nice clean swimming pool in a lovely grassed yard, and I'd go back there tomorrow!

  • Liked — totally laid back and so convenient to town
  • Disliked — leaving it for a skyscraper place in Modena
  • Stayed September 2003, traveled as a couple
