Villa Monte is perched in the Montepulciano countryside with easy access to the historical city center of Montepulciano, often referred to, as the ???gem of Tuscany”. The city was founded by an Etruscan King, has 2000 years of history, which can be experienced by guests while visiting Etruscan Tombs and impressive renaissance architecture. Montepulciano and surrounding cities offer an interesting history lesson from many important stages in world history such as Etruscan and Roman periods, and the Renaissance.

Villa Monte is in an ideal location for visitors to enjoy the best of Tuscany. Just a 10 minute car ride to historic Montepulciano, 15-30 minute ride away to beautiful cities such as Montalcino and Pienza and within an hour drive of Siena and Florence. Villa Monte is in Montepulciano, which is the closest beautiful Tuscan city to Rome - the airport most popular for international flights to Italy.

There is something for everyone, and we are happy to help connect you to local events or help you plan daytrips. Here are a few ideas:

For Food Lover

Montepulciano and surrounding areas will live up to all your highest expectations. Villa Monte is located on the Strada del Vino Nobile (designated scenic country wine road), and the villa enjoys views of vineyards that produce the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, D.O.C.G (highest quality official rating). We welcome visitors to participate in a wine tasting or wine production lesson at the villa, upon request, free of charge given by the owner, who is a trained sommelier in Montalcino, Tuscany.

The following are a few suggestions, and we are happy to provide more information:

- Wine tasting and cantina tours in Montepulciano (Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) and Montalcino (Brunello di Montalcino)

- Wine tasting event at the villa featuring local producers (upon request)

- Visit of sheep farm and cheese tasting in Pienza

- We are happy to suggest local restaurants to taste traditional Tuscan fare such as pici pasta, wild boar, local wines and cheeses

Lovers of Nature and the Outdoors

Enjoy the healthy lifestyle Tuscany has to offer with outdoor activities. Villa Monte provides a perfect place to enjoy long nature walks, runs and bike rides. We are happy to provide local maps and help you develop a route for any of these activities, we can even point out a few good stopping points for taking photographs or re-energizing with a glass of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano wine!

The following are a few suggestions, and we are happy to provide more information

Art and Historical Trips

- Enjoy one of the most beautiful scenic drives in Tuscany along the road between Montepulciano, Pienza(14km/9miles) and Montalcino(17km/10mies from Pienza);

- Visit Florence (90km/55miles) the centre of Renaissance Art. Montepulciano was historically aligned with Florence and was of relevant importance as the southern most important city aligned with Florence in its battle with Siena for domination of the Tuscan countryside. The support to Florence is evidenced by the Marzocco monument (flying lion, and one of the symbols of Florence) at the entrance of Montepulciano.

- Siena (45km/28miles), one of the most important republics of Tuscany, challenger for Florence’s domination politically and artistically, which is at its peak in July and August for the world-famous Palio horserace between neighbourhoods.

- Cortona (28km/18miles from Villa Monte) is a beautiful hilltown, with impressive architecture well-known as the setting for such books as ???Under the Tuscan Sun’

- Etruscan tombs and the museum of archaeology in Chiusi (5km/3.5miles)

Relax

Besides the amenities of our villa and vineyard, visitors should consider a daytrip to one of the thermal baths near Montepulciano. Visitors can enjoy a full range of Spa treatments, or just enjoy the hot mineral baths which many say have healing properties.

- Chianciano Terme is just 6 kilometres/4 miles from Villa Monte and is one of the most famous spa areas in Tuscany benefiting from several hot springs.

- Another thermal bath with historical importance is Bagno Vignoni, located only 22km/14 miles from Villa Monte.

- Terme di Saturnia (80km/50miles)

For Movie Buffs

Enjoy the landscape that made several movies. We can arrange sightseeing to background scenery that were part of several famous movies shot in Montepulciano or nearby. Watch the movies first as we will have many on hand at Villa Monte ready for DVD viewing.
