We stayed at La Locanda in September 2013 and just loved this little hotel. 4 room bed and breakfast in the beautiful hilltop town of Montepulciano. Our room was large, updated and beautifully appointed. The views were spectacular and our hostess was warm and inviting and helpful. Loved the wine bar that was also their reception area and the breakfast was wonderful. We were only there for one night and were disappointed we hadn't booked more. This was our first trip to Italy. Two weeks all over the country. The entire trip was just awesome and this one night stop was certainly a highlight. We will definitely go back and I highly recommend it.

We stayed at La Locanda di San Francesco in late September 2013. This is a beautiful little bed and breakfast with unbelievable views in an historic little hilltop town in Tuscany. When we settled into our room, my wife and I looked at each other and said "this is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed". It was clean, comfortable, and tastefully appointed with attention to every detail. Cinzia was a most gracious hostess, offering us wine and snacks on our arrival and then spending time with us going over a map of Montepulciano, and offering dining and sight-seeing recommendations. Breakfast was also a highlight and served in a beautiful library setting. There is a bar downstairs that is just the place to enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying a beautiful Tuscan sunset. And as a bonus for traveler's who have been on the road for a while, there is a laundry located just around the corner, which was convenient and timely for us. Highly recommend visiting Montepulciano and staying at this wonderful inn.

This beautiful, small, welcoming 4 room inn in Montepulciano was the perfect home for exploring Tuscany. Cinzia is a wonderful, warm welcoming hostess. She welcomed us with a glass of wine and snacks. It was like going to someone's home and not an inn. She gave us spot on recommendations for restaurants, shops, and day trips and was always there asking us about each experience. The suite had incredible views over both sides of town and the best sunset view imaginable. We left the windows open at night and had a beautiful, cool Tuscan cross breeze all night. Breakfast is included and is excellent. The attached wine bar was a great place to relax after a long day or grab a glass of wine before or after dinner. We loved all the people working there. We also loved Montepulciano - what a fantastic town to call home for a few days. Can't imagine a better place to stay in Tuscany. Thank you Cinzia!

Room Tip: The suite is worth the extra money - great views on both sides of the valley, beautiful sunsets, gre...

Perfect top-of-the-hill sanctuary in Montepulciano with the most comfortable bed. We happen to stay in 2 different rooms-the king and their 3-room suite. The king room has expansive views of the Valdichiana Valley- simple accommodations with a rustic charm. The 3 -room suite has great views of both valleys including the Val D'Orcia. Loaded with amenities including own computer, satellite/ cable systems, luxurious bath, historic church bell tower room (aka club room), sumptuous robes, etc. Breakfast of fruits, cheese, cold cuts, hard-boiled eggs, fresh juice, cappuccino and the heavenly farm-fresh yogurt. Lovely hosts, what else can I say? Can't wait to return.

We stayed here in August 2013.The welcome was so friendly and of course involved chilled prosecco and nibbles! Our room was immaculate and tastefully decorated with a large comfy bed, it over looked the small piazza and had amazing views. In the night you could hear the flags in the square flapping in the breeze. I would return here in a heartbeat. The central location meant that we could easily walk in to town for drinks and food with several great recommendations and a useful map in our hand. We tasted, and purchased, some good wines from the hotel wine bar too.

Room Tip: worth upgrading for the breeze and the amazing views

Also, thank you for mentioning that the Locanda is in the heart of the historic center of the Montepulciano, so that all the restaurants, shops, monuments, like all the events in town are within an easy reach on foot.
I'm very glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Montepulciano during the month of the Barrel Race "Bravio delle Botti", with all the colours of the flags of the Contradas giving a new life to all the streets of the old town.
Hoping we will have the opportunity to welcome you again at Locanda San Francesco,
