    Overview

    A farmhouse with stunning views

    Montebello is located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level. It stands on its own and benefits of complete privacy. The house is reached by a 4 km country gravel road. This beautiful valley is a nature preserve located in the southernmost part of Tuscany with magnificent views 360 degrees around. Shimmering olive groves, stone paths dotted with cypress trees, endless vineyards and centuries-old chestnut trees surround the immediate vicinity, and the nearby villages of Colle Sant’Angelo (10 km) and Montalcino (17 km) can be seen from the property’s altitude.

    The old stone farmhouse dates back to the 18th century, having evolved over the centuries to what it is today, a charming building with many hooks and corners. The large living room with open fireplace lies on the first floor of the house and leads onto 3 of the 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The decoration of the house is full of taste; mostly using textiles from a Tuscan weavery located near Arezzo. In front of the kitchen door a vine-covered pergola with table and chairs for outdoor meals looks out over the wide and open valley. The pool measures 4 x 15 metres and is equipped with deck chairs and sun beds. An outdoor shower, as well as a pergola for shade will make this area the centre of your outdoor life.

    In Montalcino (20 minutes by car) a good choice of excellent restaurants can be found and there are all kind of shops - supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bank. In the nearer village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate (10 minutes by car) there is a small Cappuccino bar and a small grocery shop.

    About the region

    Food and wine: Varying seasons bring varying menus. The quality of the produce is what one identifies with cuisine in Tuscany: fresh vegetables, crisp salads, aromatic tomatoes, porcini (wild mushrooms), tartufi (truffles), home-made pasta or polenta, tortelli filled with spinach and ricotta, wild boar stew, grilled meats and venison, wild strawberries, raspberries, chestnuts, and many delicate herbs which join together to produce the exquisite meals you will enjoy, enhanced by the superb red wines from nearby Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. We have compiled a list of restaurants we can recommend in the immediate neighbourhood (list in the house).

    Sight-seeing: Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Sant'Antimo, Monte Oliveto Maggiore and San Quirico are precious stones set in Tuscany and rate top of the sight-seeing list. The seaside near Grosseto is an hour in the car. Florence and Rome are a comfortable two hours by car. Arezzo, Orvieto, Perugia and Assisi and so many others are day-trip distance. Famous private gardens are open to the public once a week and are well worth a visit (list in the house).

    The hot springs: Tuscany is famous for its hot springs, the most spectacular beeing Saturnia at an hours drive. Nearer are Bagno Vignoni (remember Nostalgia by Tarkowski?) and Bagno San Filippo where in the midle of the woods the warm water has carved natural pools into the rock.

    Climate: The months between Easter and the end of October are considered the "best" months for Tuscan travel. Yet more and more people enjoy visiting Tuscany "out of season" to discover a more intimate aspect of the region. This house has central heating and is very comfortable all year round.

    Our Guests Reviews

    Liebe Frau Roehrig,
    We are just returned from our holiday in Tuscany, and a hugely happy stay in Montebello, and I would like to thank you and your staff for your help in making this possible.
    The villa is just perfect, and exceeded all of our expectations. We were overwhelmed too by the warmth and kindness of Alessandro, who proved to be the most generous and solicitous of hosts. Stupidly, in the anxiety of our departing with time enough for the drive back to the airport, I neglected to ask Alessandro for either his home or his e-mail address, as I very much would like to write and thank him again for all that he did to make our stay so memorable.
    Therefore, I would be grateful if you could please approach him on my behalf and ask for his permission for you to let me have his contact details. I could, of course, send him a text message, but prefer not to as I do not belong to the generation for whom that is the most favoured means of communication! I hope to hear from you.
    R. Balyuzi, September 2007
