La Falconara was my favorite of the five places we stayed on our 3 week trip to Italy. The location just outside Montepulciano is very convenient, and the grounds, view and local area are beautiful. The farmhouse is surrounded by olive orchards and vineyards and has a lovely garden and pool. Our apartment was spacious, charming and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. But the highlight was the hosts, Alex and Ingrid. They are very warm, welcoming, delightful people. They speak good English, and they were extremely helpful with recommendations for restaurants, places to go, and things to do. They made dinner reservations for us several nights, and they provided maps, guidebooks, and itineraries for the areas around Montepulciano. They were fun and interesting to talk with. I was really sad when we had to leave and wished we were staying longer. There is a lot to see in that area, and we didn’t have time to see it all. I highly recommend La Falconara if you are looking for an agriturismo in Tuscany.
