Five couples, one week in Montepulciano, and everyone was overjoyed with this beautiful villa, fantastic location, beautiful view of hills covered with vineyards and olive groves and trees, private grounds, walking distance to town, easy driving distance to Siena and Pienza and Cortona and other towns. My wife and I love this place, have been several times before and could not wait to put together a trip for very dear and very old friends to visit this house and this town. Our friends travel quite a bit, some are very accustomed to five star accommodations, and they were amazed at the beauty and quality of every inch of this house. It is a work of art. But once you tear yourself away from the villa, and walk outside to the beautiful porch, and just look out on Tuscany, or sit next to the outdoor fire sipping wine and telling stories, or swim in the hand tiled beautiful infinity pool, or sit on the overlook deck, or wander down into the olive grove, you will be glad to stay in Italy right there as long as possible. The next time we come we need more than a week to soak it all in. It is therapy of the finest sort.
Let me not for a minute forget to mention how fantastic it is to work with Sherry the owner. She helped arrange out entire week, including multi course wine tasting experiences, tours in Siena, lunch at La Grotta, and our own personal chef for our last night (and it was the best food we had the entire trip, which is saying something.) With her help, appetizers and wine were delivered prior to our arrival, dinner delivered later in the evening, to get our party started. She is fantastic.
The concierge for the house, Eileen, and the groundskeeper Marci, are fantastic and have become great friends.
The pictures really do not convey the beauty. Just go. You will be glad you did.
