Montorio is a truly magical place. This was our fourth consecutive visit and each time we leave, we promise to return again.
Picture this. A beautifully restored ancient building situated on its own little knoll just outside the hilltop town of Montepulciano. Stunning panoramic views of the southern Tuscan countryside. Simple and well maintained gardens and terrace overlooking the renaissance church of San Biagio. Mature cypress trees to keep you cool and plenty of room and sunbeds to laze about in the sun. Even on the hottest of days at the height of summer, a cooling breeze seems to create a natural outdoor AC system. Very tastefully designed apartments with Italian furniture and all the facilities one needs for a self catering holiday. Montorio really is a truly magical place.
If you can drag yourself away from Montorio, there are plenty of picturesque hilltop towns to visit nearby, for example, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Montichello (go there in the evening time to see the sunset). Along the way, you will meander through the rolling Tuscan hills, a treat in itself. Florence is 90 minutes away and San Gimignano, Siena, Cortona etc are also within easy reach. You can even go to Rome by train on a day trip from nearby Chiusi station – about 20 minutes away by car - cars can be hired at the station also if you are coming from Rome or other cities and don’t relish the thought of driving on the A1.
The owner of Montorio, Stefania, is extremely helpful and friendly. She has excellent English and always has good suggestions for trips and restaurants.
A stay in Montorio will be unforgettable and no matter how long you spend there it won’t be long enough!!
