We had a lovely spacious apartment ('La Scalla') in the farmhouse, with great views over the countryside. It was very comfortably furnished with traditional furniture, and all was spotlessly clean. There was a private place to sit outside immediately by our door, and we enjoyed eating and reading there. There is a pool, again very clean, and the farmhouse is surrounded by olive trees and vines. The family make their own wine and olive oil, both of which are delicious.
From the apartment it is just a short (uphill) walk into Montepulciano, a delightful hill-top town, yet the apartment feels to be in the country, away from all the bustle and tourists.
The hosts are very kind and helpful, and Marina cheerfully coped with our feeble attempts at Italian. Antonella speaks good English and is home from work in the evenings and at weekends.
We would heartily recommend Podere Fontecastello.

Great boutique hotel. HUGE room. Nice, large bathroom. Within walking distance to all of Siena's sights. Super helpful and friendly manager. His restaurant recommendation was our best dinner in Italy. Would definitely stay here again.

This country B&B is inside a working vineyard in the midst of Chianti country. It has magnificent views of the surrounding farms all the way to Siena. The drive into Siena is 15-20 minutes. The room we had was spacious and warm, with a small yard for sitting in the sun. We loved to stroll among the rows of grapevines and even hiked up a trail though an abandoned abbey and woods to the nearby olive farms and vineyards. The restaurant offered excellent local cuisine at a very good price. The hosts and staff were warm and friendly.
