Appartamenti al Poggiolo
Reviewed November 1, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at al Poggiolo in Apartment #!. The homey atmosphere made it a wonderful place to come home to after exploring Montepulciano and surrounding towns, and the villa's location in the town is perfect. Elena and Margherita were thoughtful, helpful hosts. Overall, a beautiful experience! (Montepulciano is a lovely hill town with many great restaurants and shops. It is a walking town; we wouldn't recommend driving in the town. A car is helpful in exploring the surrounding countryside, but buses are available, and less stressful than driving in the hill country!)

We recently returned from a 3 week trip to Italy and our 1 week stay at Appartamenti al Poggiolo was the highlight of the trip. Our hosts, Margherita and Elena were very accomodating. You felt like you were a part of their family. The apartments were very well decorated and had everything one would need. The town of Montepulciano was our favorite place to visit. We would definitely recommend this town and this villa to anyone wanting to visit. Tuscany.

Stayed in Garden apartment 4. It was very spacious for two of us but still a great deal. Bathrooms are small by north american standards so having one each still felt posh. The kitchen had every possible amenity and having laundry was wonderful. The apartments have a magical balance of old-world charm and every modern amenity that a traveller could want - parking, internet, dishwasher, satellite tv, fireplace, corkscrew :)
The grounds were pretty with a rare garden in central Montepulciano. The location was perfectly central.
The hosts were incredibly gracious, around when you needed them and never when you didn't. Loved the offer to use fresh herbs from their garden as well as their samples of their own olive oil.
I can't think of a bad thing to say about this beautiful apartment in this lovely town (which you can have for a song). We were very sad to leave Montepulciano.

Our family of four (two teen-aged boys) stayed here the first week in May. It was positively amazing. Our plan was to take day trips each day to other hill towns, including Florence, since we had a rental car. But we were so enamored with Montepulciano that we stayed here the entire week and only ventured down the road to Pienza for a short trip.

We stayed in Giardino Apt. 4, which was beautiful, lovely new furniture, clean, great bathrooms, full kitchen, firm beds - everything you could ask for and more. The interior is even more lovely than the website photos. The view from the windows was heavenly and overlook the Tuscan hillsides. The apartments are on a quiet lane where there is complete privacy. The garden is lush and private with easy driving access to the parking area. The location couldn't be better. You are just a block off the two main streets of Montepulciano with all the shops and restaurants. The town itself is enchanting with many churches, historical architecture, wine shops, an amazing fortress, and fantastic restaurants. As I said, we found plenty to do for an entire week.

The apartment are owned by Margherita and Elena, who are sisters. When we arrived on Saturday, they and their husbands all came out to the garden to greet us like a greeting committee! They were so friendly and made us feel right at home. Their English is excellent. During the months before our trip they always responded to e-mails immediately and were very honest about their apartments, differences between them, which one would fit our family the best, etc.

Our two favorite restaurants were Trattoria Diva e Maceo (which had amazing Steak Florentine) and Osteria Acquacheta (where we had excellent pasta and wild boar). We enjoyed free wine tasting at Antico Collo (by the beautiful church outside of the walls) and purchased Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. We also found a wonderful surprise free self-tour at Citta' Sottorranea. It is on the main street and looks like a regular wine shop, but when you go inside you find that you can take yourself on an underground tour of ancient dwellings, their wine cellar, and a collections of weapons. Very fascinating!

If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Tuscany, we will definitely stay here again. It was heaven!

The apartment was located in a quiet area of Montepulciano. However, it was only two minutes from the main drag and all the activity. There is a beautiful garden. Parking is available for those traveling by car. Our apartment had a balcony and it was lovely to sit out at night, sipping some wine, and looking out over the town and valley below us. The apartment was nicely decorated, had a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer were available for use. The owners, Margherita and Elena, and their husbands were the nicest people. It was great fun and as I said we could not have had a better experience.

Hello to you! Not only have you been the perfect guests, leaving the apartment perfectly tidy (and, if only for that, you deserve our everlasting gratitude!); but also, you've hardly had the time to return home, that you have posted your positive reviews on both TripAdvisor and Slowtravel. For all the above, lots of thanks from the "nice people" that we are!

Just returned from a relaxing vacation in Montepulciano staying in Borgo Apartment A. My husband and I wanted to live like locals for a week, relax, wander around town, shop and cook. This apartment allowed us to do exactly that. The apartment's website http://borgo.alpoggiolo.it/ had all the information we needed on recommended restaurants, shops and sights. All the restaurants we tried were great, especially Aquaccheta. By the end of the week, the proprietor at the local grocery recognized us.

We loved having an entire apartment, with a kitchen, living room, bedroom (of course), and even a washing machine. The apartment was spacious for two, had a great location in the middle of town, was wonderfully decorated and very homey. It looked just like the pictures on the website. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything I needed! The proprietors were wonderfully helpful. We didn't rent a car and they helped us out with transportation. The garden was lovely. After a busy day of walking around, we spent afternoons just reading in the garden and relaxing.

As an apartment, there were no hotel amenities: no pool, fitness room, wireless internet, etc. But that's not what you want in Montepulciano anyway.

Our warmest thanks for your ability in describing - synthetically and enthusiastically - some aspects of the local atmosphere and everyday life. We are thoroughly convinced that the best 'illustrators' of a geographical place are visitors rather than inhabitants, and satisfied visitors are obviously our best supporters!

I wanted a nice quiet place to sleep at night with no scooter or auto noise or late night carousing in the streets and Appartmenti Al Poggiolo certainly fit the bill. My husband and I along with our daughter and son-in-law stayed in Appartment #1 during the first week in May. It was so very quiet and relaxing. The appartment was very clean, comfortable, cozy, and very roomy. The beds were very comfortalbe. We had everything we needed. It was nice staying in an appartment rather than a hotel room. The owners have a wonderful web site with losts of info and photos. Their email responses to our inquiries were always prompt and helpful. We are glad that we stayed at al Poggiolo in Montepulciano. We all agreed that Monteulciano and the surrounding area was the most beautiful and favorite place that we visited. My husband and I plan to return for another vacation and plan to stay for 2 weeks at Poggiolo! If I could, I would move there in a New York minute. As to my daughter and son-in-law they will probably be staying close to home, since returning from Italy they found out that they are expecting their first baby! They also have many wonderful memories of their stay here and I know that they would like to return when they are able.
