I recently stayed at La Falconara with two of my girlfriends. We traveled through Italy, celebrating my 30th birthday. Alex and Ingrid met us upon our arrival and were not only terrific hosts, but great companions as well. We stayed in the archi apartment. It had a wonderful little kitchen, and the grocery store was close by, so we cooked dinner in the apartment a couple of nights, and were able to have a nice breakfast in the mornings. Montepulciano is just a short drive up the hill and Sienna, Montalcino, Florence, and many other towns are within a short drive so it made it easy for us to take day trips throughout Tuscany. Our last night there, we had a cooking class/dinner with Alex and Ingrid, and another couple that was staying there. It was one of the BEST nights we had during our two week vacation through Italy. I can not emphasize enough how wonderful the grounds and the hosts were to us. We created new friendships and it will forever be etched in my memory. When I return to Montepulciano, I would love to stay at La Falconara again, as well as recommend it to EVERYONE I know!!
