Property description

This beautifully restored and professionally decorated residence is located within the walled city, the historic center of Montepulciano, an important hill town in southern Tuscany.

Situated on a small lane just off the main commercial street of the town, 'the Corso,' it offers ready access to the cultural life of the town (see our website for details http://www3.sympatico.ca/amcquillan/index.htm), restaurants, coffee bars, shops and the wine bars, tasting rooms and cellars where you can sample the famous wines of Montepulciano, yet the apartment is so quite that an alarm clock will be needed if you don't want to sleep away the morning.

At the foot of the lane is a small plaza overlooking the medieval wall of the town with a breathtaking panoramic view of vineyard-covered hillsides, clusters of farmhouses and the Lake of Chiusi in the near distance, Lake Trasimino and the town of Cortona in the middle-distance and the spectacular Appenine Mountains beyond.

The precise age of the original house is not known but the cellar contains the town's only remaining ceramics kiln and certainly predates the 17th century addition that is now a separate residence for the owners.

Although completely renovated, the residence retains its original character - hand-hewn chestnut beams, handmade terra-cotta floors, travertine marble door frames set in thick stone walls with panelled wood doors and hand forged iron hardware. Even the copper and wrought iron light fixtures were made by a local craftsman. The bathrooms and kitchen are thoroughly modern and equipped to meet the expectations of discriminating visitors. There is also a central heating system and a working fireplace for the comfort and pleasure of winter visitors.

Car: Recommended

Walking wine tours are unique to Montepulciano as the vineyards all have in-town tasting rooms, some in ancient wine cellars or you can visit the vineyards in the countryside. In-town tastings are the greatest way to sample wines as no designated driver is required.

Don't miss the international music festival in July and the chamber music concerts and solo performances presented virtually year round thanks to the European Academy of Music, which is located in town. The venues for the concerts are spectacular, some take place in the town square, others in an 18th century opera house or one of the renaissance churches or in one of the great halls that are found on the main floor of the grand houses built by the noble families. Some of these have become public buildings but many are still private residences not normally open to the public.

There is a Christmas Market that runs from early December through January 6th, the traditional day for exchanging gifts in Italy. There is a month long artisans fair and other programs throughout the summer and on special weekends and holidays in other seasons. The final week of august is the town's major festival, parades, bands, medieval pageantry and nightly outdoors 'BBQ' like dinners sponsored by each of the neighbourhoods but all are welcome to participate.

Many local artist and artisans open their studios and exhibit their works for sale in galleries throughout the town.
