Located in the Renaissance area of the lively and famous historic centre of Montepulciano, this townhouse is arranged over 3 levels, measures approx. 165 square meters plus attic and was refurbished in 2001. The property has a traditional, warm and welcoming feel to it. The materials were chosen with great care and attention. The old-looking terracotta tiles used for the floors integrate seamlessly with the brick and stone walls, the open-beamed ceilings and the wood used for the stairs and the attic. The old spaces and elements have been, where possible, preserved. Niches, old walls, wooden beams make this apartment even more charming. During the restoration, the roof was insulated and the external walls were restored. The heating system is on methane gas. In the living room we find a pellet stove and the kitchen has a charming fireplace. All windows are double glazed.

The Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the oldest Italian wines, a red wine produced in the area of Montepulciano and the first who received the prestigious DOCG designation.
Going up the steep villages, visitors will discover beautiful palaces and churches where the greatest architects of the Renaissance transfused their art. See the splendid Piazza Grande with the Cathedral façade incomplete and the Renaissance Palace of the City: from the tower one can see the Sibillini Mountains and the Cimone exceptionally clear and the Italian Gran Sasso in Abruzzo, surrounded by Renaissance palazzos.
In the valley below, in an outstanding surrounding is the church of San Biagio, also called Temple of San Biagio due to its grandness.
Montepulciano is also a centre from the lively cultural activity: among the most famous events the “Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte” and the popular representation of “Bruscello” performed at the Cathedral steps..
Montepulciano is the largest Comune in the Sienese Valdichiana and contains six other villages: Abbadia di Montepulciano, Acquaviva, Gracciano, Montepulciano Stazione, S. Albino and Valiano. The poet Agnolo Ambrogini (known as "il Poliziano" from the Latin "mons Politianus") was born here. The town is said to have been founded by the Etruscan king Porsenna and exhibits impressive architecture, mainly but not only Renaissance.
Michelozzo, Baldassarre Peruzzi and Vignola all worked here, as did Antonio da Sangallo il Vecchio who designed the Temple of San Biagio. Apart from the astonishments of the historical centre of Montepulciano the tourist would do well to visit the Spa Centre at S. Albino.
