Porta Castellana
Ranked #6 of 22 Montalcino B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 October 2016

Annalisa was very helpful and had some great suggestions for dinner during our two night stay in Montalcino. The room was great on the first floor and so unique. Breakfast (which was traditional Italian breakfast food, think pastries and cheese, meats) was brought to our room each morning as it was too chilly for us to want to eat outside. Annalisa also got us set up with a tour and tasting at Costanti right outside the town. Good location for walking up to the main part of town! The streets are narrow (it is a hilltop town in Tuscany) but Annalisa set great directions that allowed us to find it with no issues. She was also kind enough to help drop off our parking ticket we managed to get when we parked in town before we even checked in. That was going above and beyond and we really appreciated it! Thank you for the great stay!

Room Tip: Great views and comfy room!

Right in the heart of Montalcino - walkable to shops and restaurants. Parking available. The room had a lot of charm and was very clean. The breakfast was delicious! Wish we stayed longer. Highly recommend!

Not knowing the Tuscany area wasn't sure where to base ourselves to see Southern Tuscany and a bit of Umbria. Turns out I picked the best town, Montalcino. The B&B was authentic and charming with brick high ceiling and stone walls. Our host Dida was incredible, so friendly and accommodating, recommended great restaurants and made reservations for us. She even took our laundry to be done!! You don't get this at a hotel who charge $3 euro for a handkerchief! The breakfasts were very good outside among beautiful scenery. Place is a little hard to find and winding streets but Dida gives directions with pictures prior to your visit which helped a lot. Such a charming town with plenty of restaurants and friendly people. Oh yes and one of the few, if any, places that has FREE PARKING.

This bed and breakfast is a dream with its views and the owner's skilled care and attention to all of the details, both in our quiet bedroom and in the garden terrace directly outside where we enjoyed our breakfast. A short walk took us up the hill to one of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany, where we had a choice of at least six lovely cafes, and more restaurants and wine cellars. You can walk up and down old streets just soaking up the views over wooded Tuscan hills and vineyards.

Excellent location. A beautiful garden is available for guests. Great room. Delicious breakfasts in the garden and a very friendly staff. Silent room and very close to city center. I reccomend this place for couple or family
