About Erika Pellegrino
My husband and I are an adventurous and energetic couple with 2 children living mainly in Austin Texas. We chose Montepulciano as our second home in the Winter/Spring because we love the country, traveling, enjoy food and wine and of course: sightseeing. When we travel, we try to immerse ourselves in the local culture. We have successfully done that in this lovely town and we are ever so lucky to discover more and more amazing wonderful places in each of our journeys that we gladly share with our guests in our insider's guide.
Erika Pellegrino purchased this House in 2010
Why Erika Pellegrino chose Montepulciano
Montepulciano is a fantastic town in the heart of Tuscany, which has so much to offer: Views, food, wine, renaissance, art and history. The people of Montepulciano are so friendly that you instantly feel at home there. Because it is centrally located in the region, you can use our house as a perfect springboard to discover many other cities and points of interest in Tuscany. So many popular towns are close by and worth discovering thru a short drive.
What makes this House unique
There is nothing better than to sit down with a glass of wine and see these breathtaking views. The town of Montepulciano has so much history and all the wonderful small towns around it, are so unique. One would never get bored while staying there.

Beautiful apartment with amazing views!
We loved staying in Erika’s beautiful apartment. It was such a great location, just outside the walls of the village and a short walk to the Porta Farine for access. We sure did get our exercise! Big hills to climb. It is a “hill town!” The apartment is lovely with everything we needed for a relaxing visit. The terrace was our favorite place to sit and enjoy the view with our glasses of vino nobile. We had perfect weather with wonderful cool breezes at night. We cooked in one evening and had everything we needed for our Amatriciana and salad. We were with another couple and had so much fun exploring the region. So nice to have our parking spot right in front! We did take a tour of the Poliziano winery as Erika suggested and loved it! Can’t wait to return! Can’t get enough of Italy! Thank you, Erika, for your easy instructions and excellent communication!
My sister and I stayed for an extended period of time in Erika’s Casina and enjoyed every moment. The location is ideal, within steps of charming Montepulciano and close to shops, restaurants and other hilltop villages. The Casina is comfortable, well equipped and has a parking spot - a rarity in Montepulciano. The view is magnificent! Erika is a wonderful host and I am looking forward to returning to her beautiful property someday.
You and your wonderful family and friends where an absolute delight and made this by far one of the best hosting experiences. You are welcome anytime and I’m so happy you were able to share your experience with so many others because it is one thing for me as an owner to think that I have such great location and views and another entirely when my guests all agree that this isn’t a marketing gimmick but the real deal! I consider myself extremely lucky to have found this spot so many years ago that only keeps improving. Please do us the honor of seeing you around in Montepulciano again in the not so far future. All the best

Casa Pelligrino Review
This is a wonderful property! Amazing views, close to town, a true Tuscan experience. Montepulciano has many things to do and see. You can easily walk to everything. We truly enjoyed our time here. The owner is very easy to work with and very responsive to any questions - she even had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival. If you are looking for a perfect place in Tuscany, this is it!
GraZie mille! It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and friends and I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed everything about your stay, especially those views and how close everything is. Please come back again and safe travels! Erika :)
Casa di Pellegrino
Beautiful scenes and a little chilly
Grazie Mille!! I’m so sorry sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate:( but I hear you had a great time nonetheless on those gorgeous terraces!!:) (you saw the extra blankets we have for such days) and that the heating we turned on for you as an exception made for a cozy stay in the end. All the best on your future travels still and until next time!
Amazing views, lovely home
We loved our stay at Casa Pellegrino. The views are just gorgeous - even from the bathrooms! The house is very comfortable and well-stocked; though we didn't end up cooking here, it would certainly have had everything we needed. The house was the perfect base for our explorations into the lovely Val d'Orcia and for strolling the streets of Montepulciano. We appreciated Erika's many recommendations and attention to detail. I was just sad that rain kept us from spending more time on the patio/balconies.
Beautiful Views. Lovely home.
The views of the deck are spectacular and Erika's home was very comfortable and clean. It is a short hike up to the town gate and about a 15-20 minute walk around the village to a big grocery. There was plenty of space for a larger group - 7 twins, a queen and a couch, 2 baths. Erika provides a huge document with insight into area amenities and attractions. We would stay again. Thanks.
I first off, want to say it was a pleasure having you and your group as our guests. It is so wonderful when all the work that goes into sharing your home is rewarded by someone paying attention to those details and mentioning it. The magnificent views are definitely First on the list for most travelers, second is the closeness to the heart of the city for all the food, entertainment and small convenience and drug stores - but as you mentioned even For bigger shopping it’s doable on foot. Not everyone realizes that thanks to the PRIME location of the house —those two are already accounted for, YET you still get space and al the comforts which let’s Face it can be a challenge in such popular Central locations and we out a lot of effort to ensure that was the case - which I know, that came in handy when the weather did not cooperate but you still had a wonderful time cozy inside on cold days. Lastly, I want to thank you also for ponting out the PDF manuals and guides I have in the house as well but that I put together and also send out electronically to my guests well ahead of arrival. As an avid traveler myself, sharing all of the insights we gathered over the years Is something that I now for a fact, can take away all of the worries and pressure from my guests when planning a perfect vacation in Tuscany. Therefore leaving you time to simple soak up those views and enjoy life at its fullest in the gorgeous city of Montepulciano. Grazie and until next time hopefully!:)
