My mother, grandmother, aunt, and I stayed at La Falconara and used it as a base for four days of exploration of Tuscany. It is conveniently located near Montepulciano in the middle of beautiful vineyards. The kitchen was well-stocked and perfect for cooking local delicacies that we picked up, and Alex and Ingrid also had good suggestions on where to eat, including for a special family lunch in San Quirico.
Alex and Ingrid were the best part of the visit, thanks to their warmth and knowledge. They were very helpful in assisting us before we arrived and continued to follow up with us after our departure. They gave us lots of tips about the area (where to eat, what to visit) and lots of reading materials, maps, and suggested itineraries with maps, which is especially helpful if you have not done a lot of advanced planning. I wish we had been able to spend more time at La Falconara, including just relaxing at the agriturismo itself.
