It was 2005 when we happened to make our first La Falconara reservation. Having found the correct turnoff from the paved road leading to Montepulciano, we crept in awe through hundreds of rows of heavily freighted Sangiovese vines; we rolled past the huge Italian Stone Pine (Pinus pinea) to our right on the knoll above our destination, then down into the little parking area surrounded by roses and genista, not far from the stone house. Partly our leisurely progress was that we didn't want to arrive (rudely) in a cloud of road-dust, partly it was that the scenery still had us completely wide-eyed.

And suddenly there was Alex, animated, matter-of-factly pruning rose bushes, now walking across to greet us and invite us into our apartment. Let me insert an observation here about the nature of apartments: My opinion is that no matter how skilled any luxury hotel's maid, you as guest somehow know that you are one of hundreds of visitors, that your room is one of dozens she or her team has processed that day. At La Falconara agriturismo there are three apartments (all of which we've inspected, two of which we have enjoyed over the years), each of which is tended with grace and affection. Each place demonstrates the essence of Tuscan hospitality.

Between drives to Siena or Cortona, or maybe down the highway to Pienza or on into Umbria, plan to reserve time for a midday trek through vineyards and olive groves and past country homes, up to Montepulciano. Take a day for it (open-ended, to allow you time to enjoy coffee or gelato, to savor the evening's passagiata, at least two hours for supper... and still find your way back). Maybe two miles each way of a gently climb. Ask about the farmers' market day.

Find prices and seasons on their site; it's La and Falconara run together, but with It instead of Com after the period. And when you go, do give Alex and Ingrid our warmest regards (Eric & Michele).

I had the pleasure of staying with Alex and Ingrid this summer while my two girlfriends and I toured Italy. Alex and Ingrid are two warm, caring, knowledgeable and wickedly funny people. My favorite part of our trip was our time spent with them in Montepulciano.

Alex took us on a vineyard tour, as well as an olive oil tour- and did an amazing cooking class our last night. You will never tire of their witty stories!

The room was quite comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with a market close by. If you are staying in Tuscany, this is the place! Gorgeous landscapes, a pool, grapevines and olive trees -plus Alex's lovely roses make for a Tuscan heaven!

We stayed with Alex and Ingrid for a week. The weather was cool but the hospitality provided by Alex and Ingrid could not have been warmer. Alex took the time to provide us a lesson on wine, olive oil, the vine yard and all the fine things Italian. He gave us great advice on off the beaten path villages and places to visit. Alex even gave us a cooking lesson including fresh pasta, sage and his homemade tomato sauce. We loved walking around Montepulciano and driving the back roads getting from place to place. Alex and Ingrid are worth the trip to Montepulciano.

My family and I stayed at La Falconara for eight days in January. Our hosts, Alex and Ingrid, were welcoming and gracious, providing everything we needed for a cosy and comfortable stay in Tuscany. Alex offered a wealth of advice and information about the region, and even gave us a cooking lesson and a typical Tuscan meal...delicious! I highly recommend La Falconara as a base for anyone wishing to explore the beautiful Tuscan and Umbrian countryside.

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.
