About Montepulciano

Many of Tuscany's hilltop towns are extremely charming with medieval buildings separated by narrow, cobbled streets leading up to impressive fortresses. And many of these towns are also located in mouth-wateringly lush wine producing areas. But not all of them are as well endowed, both with beauty or vineyards, as Montepulciano. The best places to stay in Montepulciano are perfect bases for both soaking up the culture of the area and indulging in the area's delicious food and wines.

What Not To Miss

    • The range of architecture - from the Etruscan of the original fort to the Gothic and Renaissance designs commissioned for the town once it came under the rule of Florence in the 13th Century.
    • Enjoy a glass of the finest local vintage at the Piazza Grande a Montepulciano. The square really has some exceptional architecture that will captivate visitors, whilst the shopping is of a great standard too!
    • The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta offers visitors even more of a taste of the beautiful buildings. As striking inside as out, it's well worth venturing into this historical landmark.
    • Learn about the region's rich wine heritage with a tour of one of the local wineries. If you've built up an appetite from exploring the area, worry not as the food selection is quite excellent.
    • For a stunning example of Renaissance architecture, visit Tempio di San Biagio - with delightfully maintained grounds and a spectacular interior, it's a great way to enjoy some tranquility during your visit.

    Our selection of the best places to stay in Montepulciano range from places perfect for foodies to chic value B&B's ensuring there's something for everyone in this charming town.

      For the beauty

      • If you're looking for a romantic place to stay to soak up the beauty of the area, one of the best places to stay is the Hotelito Lupaia. Eccentric and luxurious, this eight room property has amazing views from the lovely terraces and pool.
      • Follonico is a charmingly rustic B&B in the Tuscan hills if you're looking for a country escape. No frills, but beautiful in a farmhouse way, this is also an excellent choice for those on a budget.
      • Villa Poggiano - after years of restoration current owners have returned this villa to its former glory. In 6 hectares of parkland it has rural views of the medieval town of Montepulciano. Exposed beams, terracotta floors and large windows feature in the rooms. Cuisine is local and cooking classes are available.
      • For a chic, eco-friendly property, Fattoria San Martino is a simple, rustic and stylishly renovated 18th century home. Totally eco friendly, they used limewash and stone in the construction and beeswax for polish. The restaurant serves all vegetarian/vegan food. Elegant and eclectic rooms with chandeliers and incredible views of the Tuscan countryside.

      For the wine

      • If you want the wonderful flavours of Vino Nobile Montepulciano accompanied by the wonderful flavours of Tuscan food then the Locanda di San Francesco is ideal. It's also our recommendation if you want to be in the centre of town close to the top of the hill. The hotel has four rooms, fabulous views and an excellent gourmet restaurant.
      • The Podere Dionara is one of the best places if you're looking for a romantic, rural spot. It also produces its own wine and has a sommelier on hand for either a casual wine tasting or a more structured course in the art! Stunning in that square, Tuscan way, Podere Dionara is small enough to feel private, but large enough to accommodate a small wedding.
