In Tuscan countryside, Tenuta Santagnese farm offers self-catering apartments surrounded by extensive gardens with barbecue facilities and an outdoor pool. Parking is free. The family-run Santagnese farmhouse has rustic apartments with typical Tuscan kitchens, large bathrooms and bedrooms with cast-iron beds. Most furnishings are antiques, from the 18th century. Montepulciano city centre is about a 10-minute drive from the Santagnese Tenuta.
We had a fantastic stay. The photos do not do the place justice. We were in a cottage in the middle of the vineyards. The house was very well equiped including a kitchen. When we arrived late on the first day Elizabetta provided us with pasta and provisions for breakfast. The Fanetti family couldn't have been more welcoming. It is about a 45 min walk outside Montepulciano and about a 5-10 min drive. It is a two mile gentle climb to Montepulciano. We were at the house San Giuseppe, a big house converted into cottages, surrounded literally by the vineyards of the Fanetti family. Their family house (Sant'Agnese) is on the road from the bus station side of town in the direction of Acquavista ten minutes before the cottage.
The property could do with better signs; look out for the Fanetti sign on the opposite side of the road to Sant'Agnese. The cottage is on the road to Cervognano, turning immediately after the sign for La Falconara agriturisimo.
