Overview

About the property

Apartments with 1 or 2 bedrooms

In my ancient family palazzo (palace) in the central part of Montepulciano we recently renovated several apartments with one and two double bedrooms. The apartments are easily accessible by car and a free parking is available just in front of the entrance.

The property is located inside the historic center of Montepulciano in a privileged panoramic position and close to everything the town offers: wine cellars, restaurants, bars, cafés, shops, monuments, view points. The apartments enjoy also a private garden with solarium terrace and reading area secluded within the ancient Fortress walls.

About Giacomo

Former legal advisor and public affair consultant for the European Union in Brussels. Moved to my birth town in 2003 and started a marketing and property management company. Happy to be back in this enchanted corner or the world :)

Giacomo purchased this apartment in 1876

Why Giacomo chose Siena Province

My ancestors (Scottish landowners) bought this property in central Montepulciano in late 1800 as town residence. They eventually chose to settle in this house being located in the nicest and most panoramic part of the town.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is located in one of the most privileged part of Montepulciano but easily reachable by car and with a parking available close by.

Perfect apartment for a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Montepulciano is a very special place and the Politian Apartments are the perfect place to stay. They are perfectly located on a quiet street overlooking the valley, but within very short walking distance to several shops and restaurants. The Green Tea apartment was very clean and comfortable and perfect for me, my husband and my mother. Giovanna and Maria greeted us warmly and Giacomo made sure to check in on us as well. Giacomo's family has done an incredible job maintaining the building and when you step into the building and the apartment, you feel as though you are stepping into the last century - but with modern amenities! From the moment I arrived, I was already planning my return. If you're looking for the perfect place to stay in Montepulciano, look no further.

Best part of our Italy trip!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in the White Tea Apartment with its stunning views of the valley. The location is quiet but perfect in that it is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and town sites. We had a rental for day trips and were able to park right outside of the apartment. Giacomo and Maria are exceptionally lovely and wonderful to speak with. They were very easy to contact if we had any questions and their on-site caretaker, Giovanna, was equally lovely and so sweet. The White Tea was beautifully and carefully decorated and very comfortable; with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, we had more than enough room for just the two of us. The bedrooms are large, with stunning views of the valley and comfortable beds. The bathrooms were great, with the water pressure/hot water being perfect and towels and a hair dryer were provided. The kitchen, which had just been refurbished right before we arrived, is open to the sitting area and we enjoyed having breakfast most mornings there and enjoyed cooking a dinner of pasta one night! I cannot recommend the Politian Apartments highly enough; truly the best part of our 2 1/2 week tour of Italy.

Two Heavenly Weeks

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Montepulciano is the perfect place to stay. It is charming, not too busy, not too big nor too small, lots of excellent yet reasonable restaurants, friendly people, easy to get to other hilltop towns, wine tasting, cheese tasting, etc. And the Politian Apartments is THE place to stay. We were in the Green Tea Apt. for 2 weeks and hated to leave. All the previous reviews have extolled the wonderful apartments, the garden, the location, and caring and kind attention of the owners Giacomo and Maria and we can not thank them enough for all they did for us. So to mention something new, a nice feature of Green Tea is a lovely private terrace with table and chairs overlooking the gardens, and we made good use of it even in October. On Giacomo's recommendation, we hired Andrea Renieri for many full and half day private tours of Tuscany including many tastings and meals as well as sightseeing. He was so knowledgeable, interesting, and just plain fun that we hated to leave him too. All in all our stay here so far exceeded our expectations, and even our dreams of the perfect Tuscany, that I don't have the proper words to express it...which is quite unusual! And at such a reasonable price, we are only sorry we didn't stay a month.

Lovely apartments in a great spot.

  • 5 of 5

These are great apartments for experiencing Montepulciano and the beautiful surrounding area. Situated at one end of the town, they are very quiet but in easy walking distance of everything the town has to offer. The apartments feel traditional but are well fitted-out with modern facilities. Giacomo, Maria and Giovanna are friendly and welcoming, with good contact before and during our stay. We couldn't have been happier with our choice!

Tuscany at its best

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to Review our stay in May 2015. Arlene and I would like to comment on our stay in the Green tea apartment.

We just loved it. Perfect for a week long vacation, views to die for and a perfect location. We were so comfortable we hated to leave. Before our trip I was a little concerned about the location being on the extreme edge of the town. Everything was in a comfortable walking distance. Many restaurants and shops were accessible before reaching the central Plaza. After eating at any of the excellent restaurants, a stroll back to our Tuscan home was fantastic. The location of Montepulciano was superb for our daily drives in the countryside and exploration of the surrounding towns. Help was available to answer our questions. Maria and Giacomo were fantastic and made our stay so much better.

I can not say enough to recommend the Politan Apartments. Best vacation we have ever taken. We cant wait to come back. A Car is necessary to explore the adjacent areas, however just staying in town would be more than adequate.

Such a beautiful place in the middle of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I stayed here for my 60th birthday. We were in the Black Tea room WOW! Every part of this beautiful apartment is well thought out and extremely historic. Giacomo was out of town but he helped me before our arrival to book restaurants. Maria was there and what a gentle sweet person she is! We arrived to find a bottle of wine and bottled water on the kitchen table. The views from the window are just as described but better in person. The neighborhood is very quiet and beautiful. Everything is within walking distance. We only used the rental car to take day trips ti Montalchino and Sienna. We actually liked it here better than in Florence. Thank you for such a memorable time.
