About the villa

Rustic simplicity is at the heart of this 9-bedroom property, a restored former farmhouse near Montalcino (the villa is just 10km from the village). Decorated in an elegant style that’s typical of the region, the house is both classic and traditional inside – an assortment of antique furniture brings the old-age feel to the property, while the radiant palette of Tuscan oranges and pastel pinks add to the regional character. It’s simple, but stunning. A charming garden makes the most of the quiet location, with spacious outdoor sitting areas and views that drink in the Val d’Orcia valley. There’s a private swimming pool for maximum indulgence, with outstanding views, loungers, and umbrella shades to encourage relaxation.  

The main house consists of a spacious two-floor layout – the ground floor, which includes a large dining room and fireplace-dominated living room, also has a classic open-style kitchen that leads out to a furnished veranda for al fresco meals. Five spacious bedrooms can be found in the main house – a four-poster double bedroom on the ground floor, and one master, two doubles and one twin on the first. The first floor rooms all include air-conditioning for the hot Tuscan summers, and two have the luxury of a private en suite bathroom. An adjoining guest house sleeps a further 8 people; three double bedrooms and a twin, which all come luxuriously furnished with an en suite bathroom.

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.
