About the villa

Beautifully furnished in informal country style, replete with eclectic artworks and objets d’art, and cheerfully welcoming with its rustic décor, this spacious house has all the atmosphere of a special family home. Set high on a wooded hillside, its quietly secluded spot commands quite spectacular views, a huge vista of rolling hills dotted with farms and hamlets. Expansive gardens add to the sense of a hideaway retreat, yet Villa i Monti is just 11km from the medieval masterpiece of Siena, and well within day trip distance of fabulous art in Florence. Within the villa, the ground floor is a gorgeous social space with two sitting rooms, a dining room and character country kitchen. One of the five bedrooms shares this floor, while the rest occupy the upper level, each with colour-washed walls in coral or sunshine yellow, pretty fabrics, antique pieces, and private or en suite bathroom. Outside a shaded dining terrace enjoys the endless panoramas, and the twelve metre swimming pool is fitted with an exercise jet. Cook service can be pre-booked for a true taste of Tuscany, and there is a little shop in Pianella, 5km from the villa.

About the area

Chianti and South of Siena

Average weather

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.

But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
