Porta Castellana
Ranked #6 of 22 Montalcino B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 August 2017

We stayed (one adult and two teenagers from Los Angeles) for 4 nights at Porta Castellana and could not be more pleased. Dida (Anna-Lisa) is a superb owner and, upon our request, provided us with restaurant recomendations (where the locals prefer to eat) in Montalcino and Siena, provided insights on what to see/what to skip on our day trips (with maps) and assisted in coordinating visits to an olive oil producer and wine tastings. Breakfasts were tasty and enjoyed in the garden.

We had two rooms and the mattresses were great and we had excellent sleeps. Shower is small, but water pressure/temps are excellent.

Be in (or get into) shape...the walk to the local restaurants requires a reasonably steep climb, but it was certainly worth it.

Just an excellent experience. .

Anna-Lisa was the perfect hostess - very helpful in local tourist destinations, wineries & restaurants - even booked them for us. The most comfortable/soft bed of our trip so far. Nice, Italian breakfast every morning. Follow her directions on how to get to Porta Castellana - the GPS often gets lost in these narrow one-way streets. Great Restaurants in town, and excellent wineries nearby.

I wanted to stay here a few years ago but it was full so I was pleased to be able to stay this time. The title says it all, beautiful rooms, efficient air conditioning, thankfully as it was very hot, nice and peaceful garden to sit in and a good breakfast on the patio.

We stayed at Porta Castellana 4 nights. . Annalisa was a wonderful, kind and very wellcoming host: she made us feel at home and helped us with sites, activities and restaurants. The room we had was absolutely unique! We will keep wonderful memories of this place. It is a gem in Montalcino!

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!

This house, with its massive stone walls, is situated in the north-eastern area of Montalcino, ancient city in the heart of Val d'Orcia (Orcia valley) also known as "Crete Senesi" (Sienese clays). From here it's possible to have one of the best views of Val d'Orcia: San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza and, during the clearest mornings, Montepulciano.
