Luciano's place is a wonderful mix of historical, convenient and relaxing! It's in the high city of Colle Val d'Elsa, overlooking the Tuscan hills, close to Siena, San Gimignano and lesser know places like Monte Riggioni and Volterra. The room is large and comfortable with a skylight at the top of a spacious multi-tiered apartment, 5 or 6 levels, plus the terrace. Luciano prepared a great breakfast with fresh local pastries, fruit and yogurt, coffee or tea and has an intimate knowledge of where to go, when and what to see, including easy hikes on back roads through the hills around Montalcino. One issue for tall folks… you'll have to avoid some of the rafters and the bathroom is small (although it's got room for a bidet!) with another skylight. On the other hand, the price is really reasonable especially given how elegantly comfortable everything is. But the enormous living room with its high ceilings, plush sofas and a renovated old fireplace with mantelpiece is magic!
