“A Tuscan dream”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

My cousin and I were attending italian language classes at the nearby school Il Sasso (which is wonderful) and the school recommended Appartamenti al Poggiolo. This is a special place! We had a fabulous 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment on the 2nd floor. Every morning, I woke up and looked out over beautiful Tuscany. The villa has private parking, enclosed with a privacy gate) if you are brave enough to drive to the top of Montepulicano! We loved our kitchen, which had all the conveniences of home and we cooked our evening meals several times. It was impeccably clean, even if the furniture is a bit old, but it has charm and character. The owners Margherita and Elena are wonderful and we felt like we could drop by their apartment and ask questions if we needed help. This town is very special and it was only a few blocks from our school. You can walk everywhere in this awesome town, but it was so nice to always come home here, to our apartment. They have a wonderful laundry facility to wash and dry clothes. The surroundings are beautiful and they are fantastic hosts! I look forward to returning again one day! The bathrooms are large and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Internet service was great also! I highly recommend this for a very authentic stay in the most beautiful Tuscan village!

Room Tip: Our apartment opened to the garden area. Lovely setting and walk right out into your own private ga...

Thank you! We are always so grateful to those of our guests (you were in apt #Giardino 2) who offer useful comments and info to the attention of possible future guests: here, for example, in a few lines you mention proximity to the language school, and perfect working of the laundry and the internet facilities. Besides, your enthusiasm is so gratifying: we could not ask for a better reward to our endeavours!

Apartment 1 opens both into the city and into the garden, located at the top center edge of the city. Margherita & Georgio and Elena & Domenic have provided every possible convenience, from laundry facilities to free wifi to an efficient and well-equipped kitchen. The furniture and beds are comfortable, the garden is lovely and the hosts are wonderful - eager to provide assistance and ideas to make your stay perfect. From this lovely setting, we explored both the town and the surrounding area of Tuscany and Umbria over two weeks, returning each evening to park our little rental car in the gated parking area provided. It was the most perfect way to enjoy this magical area of Italy and we will definitely return!

Room Tip: Apartment is definitely the largest and has a bedroom and complete bathroom at each end, providing n...

And we will be happy to welcome you again! Thank you for your kind words, and thank you for having being so patient as to delay your planned holiday by one year after the boat accident that had prevented you to come 12 months ago… And don’t worry for missing the flagswinging. All of the 8 contrada-flags will be swinging for you on your next visit if there will be one; otherwise, when we will have shipped them to you as promised, their colours will remind you of Montepulciano!

Thank you for your appreciation, not only regarding our apartments and facilities - but us, too! Besides, your words of appraisal are even more significant, as they come from experienced travellers who have visited lots of apartments, B&B and lodgings in different countries. Thank you for spreading word about the Poggiolo apartments, and for planning to return.

We just returned a week ago from our three weeks in Italy and 5 nights in Appartamenti al Poggiolo. Apt. #1 was perfect for two couples traveling together. We had no idea that our first two days were during the Bravia delle Botti which took place all around us. We felt a part of the town as it celebrated this annual festival. I can see why so many readers have returned to this beautiful place of Margheria and Elena's.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here! Being welcomed by the Bravio pageant, with flagswinging and drums echoing through the streets, is a privilege for few lucky ones. And it is nice to hear that you felt part of the town, sharing the people’s excitement - and the outdoor dinner concluding the day!

My wife and I rented Apartment 2 during our honeymoon trek through Italy. In addition to being a great town, Montepulciano is also a great homebase for anyone looking to spend a few days exploring Tuscan towns such as Pienza, Montalchino, Cortona, etc. Margherita is a great hostess and the beautiful and spacious apartment (especially compared to a typical European sized hotel room) has a private driveway for parking off the street, a full kitchen with gas stove and dishwasher, plenty of closet space as well a washing machine. For cold weather days the place has a fireplace and on warm summer days (as it was when we visited) the town sits atop a very large hill and thus cools down significantly at night with plenty of cool breezes. In short, my wife and I can't wait to return!

We are so glad having been able to contribute to the success of your honeymoon! Thank you for your positive comments… although there is a small detail that needs to be corrected: in fact, you were not staying in apt. 2 - that one being included in the Giardino block - but in apt. B which belongs to the Borgo block. Well, your confusion is quite understandable being apt. B the ‘second’ among the Borgos. Hope to see you again… in one of the Giardinos!

As the "Di" of the earlier review, I have to agree with all said before; Ken and I had apartment 3, with the beautiful small terrace (though with the double doors open we somehow managed to accommodate 8!!). Every morning when i awoke I would go to the terrace, view the early morning sky, watch the swallows, hear the church bells, take in the most spectacular view and sigh with absolute pleasure and delight and feel just how special this place, the apartment, the town that is Montepulciano. Ken, you did very well in choosing this place and of course our hosts were very gracious and helpful. Thank you everyone that made this special time very special indeed. Ken and I will definitely be staying at Appartimenti al Poggiolo again, it is such a perfect place.

…And this is the fourth! “Di” and friends, you are super! And Ken, of course, who has the merit of having organized the whole adventure: involving friends is not always easy, but you succeded in gathering such a nice party, for such a long journey, in view of offering “Di” such a happy birthday! (we are proud to say that Montepulciano provided lovely weather…)

We stayed for a week in Giardino 1 to celebrate a special birthday. The apartment was beautifully furnished and well equipped, and the garden was delightful for breakfasts and lazy afternoons. Grazie mille!
