Montorio is an ancient residence constructed in 1300. The story goes that perhaps it was originally a convent inhabited by brothers who chose this contemplative position in front of the parish Church of Santa Maria, in whose place today rises the Tempio di San Biagio, a work of Antonio da Sangallo the Elder, built in the 1500's. At the end of the ’90's, the property was in a complete state of abandon and decay, when my family bought this beautiful ruin, and which today has become a fascinating and elegant holiday house.

Sitting on a hill at the foot of Montepulciano, it has in front of it the imposing Church of San Biagio, behind it you see the gentle Sienese hills, with their beautiful vineyards, olive groves and wheat fields. Art, history, nature meet at Montorio, which with its exclusive position offers you the privilege of a stay in a country house on a step from the town. Today Montorio is subdivided into apartments, each one with an independent entrance, furnished in a Tuscan style, restrained and elegant. Each one has been given a name of an illustrious personality that has given prestige and splendor to this jewel of the Renaissance today called the ‘Pearl of the 1500's.

To ensure privacy to guests, at the entrance of the property there is a gate that we keep closed and at the time of check in we will provide our guests of a remote control. The apartments are furnished in a characteristic charming Tuscan style. One or two bedroom apartments, all with independent heating, A/C,satellite TV, Wi-Fi connection, telephone, full optional kitchen and laundry facility. The apartments can be rented starting any  day of the week with a minimum of 3 night stay and to ensure a relaxing vacation, daily cleaning is included in the rate. Montorio has a unique location, on the top of a private hill with a gorgeous view of the Tuscan hills. It is in a walking distance to the center of Montepulciano and restaurants.
