We stayed at il Palazzo dei Diavoli as a base for exploring hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria. It is conveniently located one to two miles from Montepulciano and is in the country. Upon arriving, we were were warmly welcomed by Teresa who owns this 250 year old farm house with her husband. They mainly grow grapes for wine, olives, and figs.
There are two apartments and one suite on this combination farm and guest house. We stayed in Il Gelso with a kitchen-living room fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans; a bedroom; and an ensuite bathroom. Also included were satellite TV, wireless internet, and access to the laundry room. Stunning views of the countryside, Montepulciano, and Montefollonico are seen from the terrace. The country location was very quiet with beautiful sunsets.
Teresa had a fresh bowl of figs, fig jam, and a large carafe of her homemade wine waiting for us. She was extremely helpful with information about the local sites, maps, and navigation from place to place. She identified many sites and attractions in the local area--more than we could possibly visit in our limited time (4 nights). We used this farm house as a base for day trips to Contona, Civita, Assisi, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Montefollonico.
Upon our departure, Teresa invited us into her home and was very gracious and friendly. We highly recommend Il Palazzo dei Diavoli for independent visitors with a car looking for a base for travel to hill towns in Tuscany and Umbria.
