Review 136: Sant' Antonio, Apartment


Review by Jane from CA who is a SlowTrav Contributor

apartments on estate near Montepulciano, Tuscany South


Fall 2001, 1 week


Estate with apartments near Montepulciano, Tuscany. Owner is Nico Pannevis. I highly recommend SantíAntonio. It is an old monastery that has been converted into a "Case Vacanze." The grounds are lovely as are each of the units. There is a gated entrance for which you are given an opener (like a garage door opener.) The owner is very urbane and sophisticated -- totally bilingual as he grew up with dual languages. The property has been in the family for years. The estate has considerable acreage with much of it used as vineyards. Their wines are highly regarded.

Nico, the owner, believes in providing quality. Linens are Egyptian cotton, dishes are the pure white quality pottery, kitchens are incredibly well equipped. Furnishing is simple Tuscan style (some older pieces and some new -- nothing fancy but quite nice, a really nice feel and atmosphere). Nico has little decorative pieces in the units which give them a nice homey feeling. Bathrooms are not fancy but are good -- plenty of hot water and great towels. There is TV with CNN and BBC.

The property is about two miles outside of Montepulciano, secluded and quiet -- lovely views and a pool. Units vary in size so you should ask for one of the larger ones. Specify that you donít want the smallest apartment.
