La Lupaia is, we believe, the quintessential Tuscan hideaway. The country farmhouse is immersed in the stunning countryside between Montepulciano and Pienza. As you weave down the track upon arrival there is no doubt that you are in some of the best scenery that Italy has to offer. Cypress trees, olive groves and vineyards just confirm that you have arrived in Tuscan heaven.
La Lupaia offer 11 exclusive rooms, all spread out across this old traditional stone built farmhouse. The heart of the property is the stunning kitchen and dining areas. Breakfast, light lunch and the delicious dinners are served outdoors in the warmer months and inside in winter time. These areas are intimate and informal. There are 2 standard rooms, 6 deluxe and 3 suites: all furnished with classic Tuscan style and comfort in mind. All rooms have private external areas to relax and enjoy a glass of the local wine.
The pool area faces the town of Montefollonico and feels like it is in a private valley. Spacious lawns surround the pool and there is ample space to spread out and relax. A pool bar means that a cooling drink is never far from hand. The restaurant is the beating heart of the property. From early morning to late evening it is a bustling hive of activity and guests can watch as the meals are prepared, much coming from the onsite allotment. Many places claim to use fresh local produce but La Lupaia take this ethos to the centre of their menu. Every day the evening menu is published and you can choose whether to join or head out for dinner. We think the choice will not be a hard one, pull up chair. Simple classic Tuscan dishes swilled down with some of the finest Italian wine (Montepuluciano Vino Nobile and wines from Montalcino are considered some of the best in the world).
The location is rural and there is ample opportunity for keen walkers, however once at the end of the track some of the most sought after towns and villages are within a short drive. Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano sit in the most splendid rolling countryside and further afield Siena, Arezzo and Florence make super days out.
We are delighted to offer Lupaia to Essential Italy guests and we are absolutely sure that many of you will return time after time. The perfect combination of location, superb service and top quality all make this a truly special location for a special treat. Children are welcome but the general feel of Lupaia is aimed at couples.
