Montepulciano, Tuscany
Torre Montefollonico is a magnificent two bedroom apartment in the tiny hilltop village of Montefollonico, a 10 minute drive from Montepulciano. The spacious apartment with two bedrooms, a library, a 12th century tower with rooftop patio, and two full private baths, can sleep four. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of wonderful antiques and the best in Italian modern design. With wondrous views looking out towards Montepulciano and Pienza, you are perfectly situated to enjoy the best of Tuscany. Perched on the edge of the village you enjoy an unencumbered countryside view while enjoying the convenience of great restaurants just a five minute walk from your door.

We booked this from Australia, influenced strongly by the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. We were certainly not disappointed. Before we came, we were given a comprehensive guide to the town, the apartment and the surrounding...
