“Wonderful from the moment we arrived.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Locanda San Francesco is in the perfect location in Montepulciano- on a square overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Cinzia the co owner came out to greet us as we pulled up in the square, helped us with where to park, invited us to have a drink in her adjoining wine bar as she dealt with the tedious business of checking in . What could be a better way to arrive?

There are only 4 rooms which are gorgeous, air conditioned, scrupulously clean and well appointed.

We only stayed one night but could have stayed for days. Thank you, Cinzia .

Dear Janetclondon,
I'm really glad that you enjoyed you short stay at Locanda San Francesco, and I thank you for your kind words.
I agree with you, the beauty of Montepulciano worths more than a single day, and we would be very happy if you should decide to come another time to spend a longer time here.
Warmest regards

Cinzia

We loved this place ! Our roon was nice with a gorgeous view, the bathroom big and full of details, the owners are always available for a good recommendation.
Ideally located.
When you arrive the welcome drink is a glass of wine...just a perfect start for a perfect stay

Found this hotel off of Trip Advisor and had a wonderful time. The hotel is in a great location. The staff were friendly and the hotel is very nice. Cincy went out of our way to make us feel at home. Our room was awesome....we woke up with a view of the Tuscan region from either side of our room. We also had the opportunity to see an awesome sunset. We cant wait to go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view from both sides. I believe there is only one room. Call the hotel and...

My husband and 19 year old daughter and I spent 3 delightful days at Locanda di San Francesco this past month. It was like a haven for us after our days of exploring Montepulciano and the surrounding countryside. Cinza was fantastic - so helpful, kind, even doing research for us when she learned we wanted to hear music in the area during our stay. She found some really out of the way options for us that were thrilling! The place is comfortable, well appointed, views from all the windows, great breakfast, and lovely and responsive service. I wish we could have stayed longer. Being there made our time in the area very special.

Room Tip: We had a great room that had a loft for our daughter and while we were all together, this afforded h...

This little 4 bedroom hotel is a gem. The owner is amazing, such a warm welcome and will make you feel at home. Hotel rooms were quite spacious and very clean. The beds are comfortable. Parking is right out front.
Definitely would recommend it for you.

Fell in love with this hotel and their staff. So charming and an incredible experience. Check in took place in the wine bar attached to the hotel over a few complimentary glasses of wine and some appetizers. The location is at the very top of the town which makes for some outstanding views. Breakfast was great and the rooms were elegant. I would recommend this place to any couple looking to relax and unwind.

Dear Djrfouralarm,

We thank you, together with our staff, for the kind words you spent about us and our property!

As you know, Locanda San Francesco has just 4 guestrooms, so that our wine bar on the ground floor is, at the same time, our reception area and the meeting point with our Guests.
We think that a glass of wine is the best way to say "welcome to Tuscany", and we are glad that you enjoyed your experience at Locanda starting from our check - in !
We will be pleased to have the possibility to host you again in our property, and hope you will consider again Locanda San Francesco if you should come back to Tuscany.

Kindest regards

Cinzia, Luca and Locanda's staff

We stayed here for 2 nights in June and it was the end of an amazing trip through Cinque Terre and Tuscany. This hotel was everything I had expected it to be and more. Cinzia and Luca were so so helpful in every way possible. We stayed in the Suite which had a small room above the bedroom with a couch and a wonderful, sweeping view of the beautiful Tuscan countryside below. I was amazed by the bathroom which was bigger than my hotel room in Paris and had a window that opened up to a Panaromic view of the otherside of the countryside and we would look down and see people standing in awe looking at the scenery (which we could see from our very own bathroom - who could ask for anything more). The location was perfect and if we ever return to Montpulciano again we will definitely stay here.
