Nice accomodation to stay with a car

Hi All,

We are planning to stay around Montepulciano at the end of April with our rental car for 4-5 nights. It is our third trip to Tuscany and seventh trip to Italy. We will be coming from Bologna or Parma after spending a week or a bit more exploring the Italian Lakes.

We have been to Montepulciano in the past and loved it so much! So now we need lastraniera' help and good advice from all others who love and know this area. We would like to stay in a boutique hotel or B&B around Montepulciano and just walk, hike, drive around, relax... I am thinking about "Sant' Antonio", but we are more than willing to spend more for a beautiful spot somewhere on the vineyards.

My dear lastraniera, any recommendation from you would be extremely helpful. Thank you in advance!

Nora

This looks beautiful. What is the proximity to the restaurants and shopping from this hotel?

Hi Kay2626,

So sorry! I missed your post. Looks like dsc115 kindly answered your question (see post 9) and encouraged me as well.

A week left and we are off to Italy!

Thank you all for helping me with our trips! Lastraniera, you are fabulous!

Grazie Mille,

Nora

Oh Nora, you lucky pup!

You will need to do a report, even a mini one. As long as we know what you ate! :)

Hi Anna!!!

Oh, I will be writing 3 trip reports (posting “live”)...

1. Italian Lakes (Menaggio, Lugano, Como, Garda).

2. Parma/Modena

4. And my beloved Tuscany!

Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we our dream to hike in Tuscany (and eat, and drink vino) will come true.

And the funny thing is that we are coming home on May 2nd... and on May 4th I am off to Paris on a business trip but with two weekends reserved just for myself. My husband is staying home.

6 days left!

Grazie Mille!

Nora

Howdy Nora.

Now you know I'm a big Grazianella fan. Hope you'll like it.

Did you book Hosteria Giusti in Modena or that other famous place in town ;)

Hi Ziggy,

I am loving Villa Grazianella already - just by looking at the pictures.

I have not booked anything yet... Hosteria Giusti is a great tip! We are following your footsteps staying at the Villino di Porporano, which is close to Parma, but we will definitely drive to Modena.

Thank you for the great tips and I hope your trip to Spain is shaping up nicely.
