Dear Nico,

Once again, thank you all. We had a wonderful time at "La Terrazza" and are pleased to tell you that we are now engaged to be married! Doug proposed on the apartment terrace. He had planned to wait until we were in Greece, but your place was just so amazing. We hope to visit again with our families.

Thank you,

S and D, Canada

(FYI - "La Terrazza" is one of our apartments in the historical town of Montepulciano - Nico, Sant' Antonio)

Dear Nico,

Now that we are near the end of a litre bottle of your special extra virgin olive oil, we want to thank you again for this great gift and to tell you that we have enjoyed every drop! It became our special table olive oil only for dressing salads (which we have everyday) or occasionally over cooked pasta. We shared it only with a few discerning friends and they thought highly of it too. We think back often to the wonderful time we had in the heart of Tuscany, at Sant' Antonio in July last year. Even the boys comment from time to time about the fun they had playing rugby between the olive trees, swimming in the summer warmth and generally enjoying the quieter country life.
It would be lovely to return someday.

Nico , just a note to tell you how much Pam and I enjoyed your lovely Sant' Antonio! What a beautiful place you have . Your hospitality was exceptional and made our stay so enjoyable We shall return ! Looking forward to staying with you again.
Take care and good luck with the weather !!!!

Anne S. - USA

Rarely do I get back in my office and have time to think and appreciate where I have been.
Tuscany, the historic towns, the food, wine and tranquillity of Sant' Antonio has allowed me and my husband to enjoy an wonderful stay on your property.
I congratulate you on what you have created at Sant' Antonio – your website does not do the property justice… but we have been through that!
Thank you and your staff for all your help and we look forward seeing you soon.

Hi Nico

Was it really only a few days ago that we were under the Tuscan coldish sun of January?
Thank you, and your staff, once again for a wonderful holiday in Sant' Antonio.

We look forward coming back soon - I think we already need another holiday!
Take care

vacanza in Sant'Antonio
Good Morning Nico!

Keron and I are just now getting settled in. We had a wonderful time in Tuscany! The land was beautiful, the food was amazing and the wine was delicious. We are so grateful that we got to spend our time at Sant Antonio as we could not have asked for better lodging or a better host. I have already recommended Sant Antonio to friends. Hopefully, Keron and I will be able to return in the future. Thanks for everything and please keep in touch.

Dear Nico,

Anne and I returned from our Italy trip late Saturday. We have been digging through the mountain of communication that accumulated during our absence.

We had a wonderful time on our entire trip. The weather was fantastic, with the only rain occurring one evening while we were staying with you at Sant' Antonio. As you might recall, it had cleared the following morning, so we were very fortunate during our twenty-two day trip in Italy. We have many fond memories from our Italian travels and hopefully we were successful in making some good photographs as well.

One of the highlights of our visit was staying with you at Sant' Antonio. We are hopeful we will be able to return to Tuscany in a couple of years. We will contact you as soon as we have possible dates to see if we can stay at Sant' Antonio again. We loved the place and greatly appreciated your kind and most helpful assistance during our visit.

I'm sorry that we'll be in Denmark while you are in California this December. If by chance your travels ever bring you in our direction again, please feel free to contact us in advance. We would love to have a chance to share a meal with you, and visit with you in California.

If we can provide any assistance with your trip planning, please let us know.
With warmest friendship,

John and Anne, California, USA

Hi, Nico. Just a short note to say how much Kathie and I enjoyed staying at Sant' Antonio a few weeks ago. The best part of our trip to Italy and I am sure we will make it back soon. I tell everyone I see what a lovely time we had there (the group dinner was great) and I am sure you will see a few more Canadians show up over the next couple of years as a result.

We are back in Toronto now and getting ready for winter (it snowed yesterday). All the best.

Bob - Toronto; Canada

Nico hi,

Just a short note to tell you how much we appreciated your hospitality last week. A beautiful spot and very comfortable – the mid-week meal with beautiful food – and the weather (no, - not your doing!) sunny and still. Plenty to see every day – the obligatory morning jog a salve to the conscience when settling in for light lunch and wine wherever one might be. Osteria dell Acquacheta (?) our kind of place.

Zoe and Mike are back in Germany – their thanks as well for your generous gifts.

Who knows.....we may see you again.

Fond regards,


Greetings to Nico and Family,

Breese and I truly enjoyed stay with you. Tuscany and your hospitality were the highlights of our 6 weeks in Italy. As we had spoken of , we are preparing to send you a DVD set of a television show that was produced by HBO. It is called Rome and presents great and reasonably accurate history of Caesar, Marc Anthony, Cleopatra and what life was like at that time.
We really enjoyed it and when we spoke to you of it, you said that you would like it in English. That is fine, you have an American style DVD player? The technology is apparently different by region. Europe uses a different format than the USA.
Tell me so that I can get this on it's way and I can fulfil my promise.

Your friend

Bob G. - USA

Dear Nico,

We have just downloaded the photos of our holiday at Sant' Antonio and they brought back many happy memories of our stay at your lovely Country Resort.

It was a really relaxing week and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the many hilltop villages around Montepulciano. Your recommendation of La Grotta for a meal to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary was a great start to our week and thank you also for your kind gift of Sant' Antonio Olive oil which is fantastic and has pride of place in the kitchen as a happy reminder of our lovely holiday in Tuscany.

We will certainly recommend Sant' Antonio to any friends travelling to Tuscany in the future.

With best wishes

Sandra & Rod S. - England

Hi Nico,

Thank you to you and all your staff for another great week.
We had a marvellous time, and the weather was wonderful!
I am sure I will be coming back again in the next 2-3 years.
Viareggio was baking hot, very busy, hellishly expensive, but terrific fun.
I definitely achieved the contrast I was trying for.
Back at work now to try and pay it all off.


Mark and family. - England


Just wanted to let you, your lovely wife and the staff at Sant' Antonio know how much we appreciated the time we spent at your wonderful resort the last week of June. Your hospitality and attention to detail were much appreciated. Our friend, Ann, is absolutely right - Sant' Antonio truly is a slice of heaven!

I can still smell the lavender, jasmine and rosemary perfuming the air.
And those endless views from every corner of the property! We'll most definitely be back!

All My Best,

Bruce I. - UK

Ciao Nico,

Thank You! Our week at Sant' Antonio was fantastic!
We can truly say that the week there with Anne & friends was the best holiday we've ever had.
We feel especially lucky to have had all of Sant' Antonio to ourselves.
The food, the accommodations, the views and you and your staff were all perfect.
We hope to visit again and again.

Please say hello and thanks for us to Elena, Susanna and Daniela - they are the best!

If you come to Los Angeles please let us know in advance so we can plan to meet you.

Thanks again -

David P. - California

Dear Nico,

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Sant' Antonio.  You have a wonderful place with a great team.
We will be back.

Best wishes,

Jeremy K. – London, UK


A quick note to thank you for the wonderful stay and for all your help in resolving the passport and flat tire problems. On the plane yesterday, we decided Sant' Antonio was perfect!

Cordialissimi saluti,

MaryEllen, Jill, Deb, Roberta and Carol


I wanted to send my thanks for your hospitality.  Staying at Sant Antonio was a perfect way to spend a week to rest, relax and to enjoy Italy.  You and your staff were a wonderful addition to our experience.  Florence is shockingly big and busy in comparison with our time in the Tuscan towns.  Thanks for your advice in driving straight to the airport.  It would have been a huge mistake for us to drive in Florence.

Thank you again.  We hope to return.


Kurt O. – USA

Dear Nico:

I just wanted to let you know that we loved your wonderful resort, you made us feel like it was our home and that you cared about us.  We hated to leave and now look forward to some day returning to your beautiful place.  I hope your summer goes well and I will be surprised if you don't own most of Tuscany by the time you are done.  With all of your hard work, intelligence, and energy, I know you will have many great successes.  Thank you for being such a thoughtful host and we wish you and your family the very best.

John F. – USA


Thank you for the wonderful stay at the beautiful Sant' Antonio.  We loved our apartment and we loved meeting you and your wife and the lovely guests staying there.  La Porta was simply fabulous so thank you for recommending the restaurant.  I also appreciate your kindness in helping me receive and send faxes.

Hope to see you and stay at Sant' Antonio again.  We will be telling our friends and hope to send more business your way,

Ci vediamo & grazie mille,

Lynda, USA

Dear Nico,

Our drive back to the airport was silenced by the memories of our 2 weeks at Sant' Antonio.  Thank you for making our family reunion a complete success and for organising numerous dinner reservations.
Sam and I will be back soon – perhaps on our own!

Thank you once again,

Theo, Amsterdam


Jim and I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful resort you have  in Montepulciano.  We have never felt more welcome and more at home than we did at Sant'Antonio.   The views were so beautiful that I decided to put Sant'Antonio as my back drop on my computer at work.  The dinner at your restaurant Osteria Del Leone was also a memorable meal.  The Truffle barley was excellent, which brings me to ask for the recipe if would give that out.  Thank you for getting us in the Avignonesi Winery.  The tour and wine was  excellent.  We had no problem carrying all 7 bottles of wine back to the U.S.

When we are ready to return to Tuscany Sant'Antonio will be place we stay again.  I would highly recommend the Sant'Antonio to any one I know that will be coming to Italy along with our travel agent for her future customers.

Again, thank you for making this a memorable trip.

Jim and Debi, Arizona 


A big thank you to you and all your staff for your contribution to a fantastic holiday at SantAntonio.
The accomodation was great, the surroundings superb, and the the countryside around ' a little corner of paradise '.
Your restaurant was first class, we won't forget our birthday dinner.

Sorry to tell you but we WILL be back!!

Adrian, Derek, Marian, Amanda and Doreen Day

Dear Nico,

Just a quick note to thank you.

We always find a consistently high standard in both accommodation and customer service from you and all your staff. We are always confident that we will thoroughly enjoy our stay and this year has proved no exception.
We have returned to work with renewed vigour ( for week or two at least!).

We look forward to seeing you again,

Janet, Mike and Kate, England

Dear Nico,

thank you so much for making my family so welcome at your wonderful resort.
I am so sorry that it has taken this long to e mail you, but work has been a little hectic since
our return.

Molto grazzie per tutti

Adrian B. (& family of course!), England

Dear Nico,

It has been about a month since our stay at Sant Antonio.  I just want to thank you for making our visit unforgettable.  Your kindness and hospitality were wonderful and we immediately felt right at home.  Robert and I both agree that Tuscany was our favorite part of our European vacation and Sant'Antonio was definitely the main reason.

All of your restaurant recommendations were perfect and we loved our meal at Osteria del Leone.  We are already trying to figure out when we can plan another trip back to Italy, to return for another relaxing week at Sant'Antonio, our new favorite travel destination.

Thank you so much.

Article kindly written by Mike M. on a travellers website:

Recently, our family of 8 adults and 2 children spent one of those always hoped for but seldom realized, perfect Tuscany vacations.  Much of the enjoyment was due to Nico and his beautifully renovated 14th Century Franciscan monastery outside of Montepulciano. Like many vacation seekers, we went to the web and began wading through an enormous amount of material designed to lure us to Tuscany.  Almost by accident, we found the Sant'Antonio website and began corresponding with Nico, the owner and host of these quality accommodations.  The monastery contains several apartments, each unique, with kitchens, living rooms, one or two bedrooms with an equal number of bathrooms and all the amenities that one needs to live comfortably.  He reserved the units he thought would fit our needs, both for privacy, and for spending time together.  One unit, which housed one couple
and their 2 children, was large enough to accommodate all of us for family dinners and get-togethers.

The grounds of the 300 acre estate are carefully tended and provide lovely outside spaces to enjoy dining alfresco (each unit has its own outside table and chairs with umbrella) or to allow the children to run around and play.
Two large barbeque areas are available; we could easily grill enough food for the 10 of us, plus new Aussie friends who were also staying at Sant'Antonio. Outside amenities also include a large swimming pool and an underground parking garage along with natural beauties like lovely views of the Tuscan hill country, olive groves, and a real forest that is part of the estate.

The one element that made the vacation extra-special was Nico and his staff. They were extremely knowledgeable about the area.  They recommended restaurants and day trips and baby sitters.   We were never disappointed in
their recommendations. They were available for any glitch, such as allowing their phone to be used when members of our family were trying to meet up with one another as we were all arriving at various times and from various
parts of the world.  One of the couples who had brought over bicycles to ride between hill towns was dismayed to find that one bike's derailler had been damaged during transport and was inoperative.  Since there was no local
bike shop, Nico had his right-hand man, Paulo, fix the rather delicate mechanism, so that bicycling could go on as planned.  One of the family members was arriving on her birthday.  Nico ordered a very special cake and
had it waiting for us so we could all celebrate.  These are just examples of the excellent service provided by the Sant Antonio staff and made the week especially memorable.  We cannot recommend them too highly.

I just wanted to thank you again for our perfect Tuscan holiday. Sant'Antonio was the highlight of our trip and I am recommending it to everyone I know. Your warmth, wonderful hospitality and extra attention made us feel very special. The grounds, lovely Tuscan construction, amenities and outstanding views make Sant' Antonio unequaled. The location was perfect as we were able to make daytrips to all the gorgeous hill towns and nearby Montepulciano (our home town) was the very best. Two of the most special days were trips to Bagno Vignoni and the Avignonesi winery. We enjoyed your great wine (Avignonesi) and managed to drink it all before leaving the country so have already checked out a local vendor and found it!!! Our two meals at Osteria del Leone were both outstanding. I am already having fresh Pici withdrawals.

Chere and David, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Dear Nico,

Now that we have returned to the USA, Rob & I would like to thank you for our terrific time (16-9 to 25-9) @ Sant'Antonio......and for the opportunity to meet some very nice people during our stay. We actually plan to meet up with Bill & Patricia (the Australians) when they are in Los Angeles this January!
We wish you the very best in the future and hope to return very soon to Sant'Antonio. Ciao....

With best regards,

Alice & Rob in California

Sehr geehrter Herr Nico

Leider haben wir uns immer verpasst, aber ich möchte mich trotzdem bei Ihnen für die nette Unterkunft und all Ihre Mühe bedanken das alles so wunderbar funktioniert hat. Wir hatten ein sehr komfortables Appartement und haben die Ruhe und die Ausstrahlung die es hat genossen.
Wir halten es in sehr guter Erinnerung und werden es unseren Freunden weiter erzählen wie schön es bei Ihnen war!

Wir wünschen Ihnen noch alles Gute und noch viel Erfolg Und verbleiben mit freundlichen Grüssen

Gerhard, Switzerland

Dear Nico,

I just wanted to drop you a very quick note to say how much Cate and I enjoyed meeting you.  I also wanted to apologise for not having called you later during the week to take you up on your kind offer.  You have a wonderful restaurant and are clearly quite the entrepreneur!

All the very best with all your endeavours and perhaps when you next come to London you might get in touch.  We would love to give you a glass of wine at the very least!

With very best personal wishes

Christopher and Cate, London
