About sergio panchetti

Hi, my name is Sergio and I am tasting a very good Water-ice in Cefalu' (Sicily August 2011). When my job leaves me free I like very much to travel with wife and sons. And when I am working at the villa I am very pleased to make my guests comfortable their stay suggesting them some good restaurant too.

sergio panchetti purchased this villa in 1970

Why sergio panchetti chose Montespertoli

My father bought this property in 1970. He worked as a sharecropper on a small farm cultivated with olive trees near the house, but in 1956 due to a large frost many trees died and he and his family left the farm. He moved to Florence where he undertook various activities. In 1970 he was offered this property and he bought it.

Now I think it was a great satisfaction for him because after 15 years of work had bought the house of the landowner for whom he worked.

I lived in Florence, and every afternoon I was with my father at the villa and I remember that I was so excited for all those rooms and those old furniture in the villa.

I grew up here and this house is part of my life.

I loved the property and now I am happy when guests enjoy their stay here.

It is located in one of the most beautiful and quiet locations in the area on top of a hill surrounded by a ring of hills around. Because of its position every view from the villa in any direction is really fantastic.

The villa is at the centre of the triangle Florence-Pisa and Sienna so in more than half an hour drive you can reach the most important towns in Tuscany. For who loves golf there are two colf clubs in the area.

What makes this villa unique

Within walking distance there is Montagnana village where you can find a very good restaurant well known for its Florentine steak, the best pizzeria in the district, bar, post office, Bank , newspaper and grocery shop . The bus stop to Florence is 300 metres away. Because of my job I know a lot of farm, so I can suggest some of the best wines in the district.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a wonderful location. The villa was clean, had a great view, was well furnished and the manager was very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay, the pool was clean and refreshing. We needed air conditioning and it was very satisfactory. We loved the villa and the location. The view was wonderful. The pool was great after very hot days sightseeing. The kitchen was large and we had a great time. The hill towns were fascinating and so interesting and historic. The vineyards, olive trees, rolling hills, wineries and fields of sunflowers were wonderful. We enjoyed everything about Florence, Cinque Terre, Siena and the many hill towns. The nearest town was Montagnana. It was a rather long walk, but we did walk into town several times. The Coop in Lastra a Signa was wonderful and provided everything we needed for groceries, clothes or any other needs. We found a great restaurant in San Casciano and enjoyed visiting there on Saturday when the locals were shopping and the stores were busy with local trade. Bring extra towels for the pool. Binoculars were helpful to really enjoy the views.

The perfect wedding!

  • 5 of 5
There are some moments in life where the stars align and you feel truly blessed. That was our experience at Villa I Leoni. I feel the description here does not truly do this property justice. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful, but what made this a truly successful experience for us was the owner, Sergio. He went above and beyond to make my husband’s and my experience a perfect one. 34 of us rented the main Villa and the two converted barns down the driveway, and my guests were blown away with the experience and the level of service that was provided. The property provided a perfect wedding venue, but also plenty of wonderful entertainment options. We scheduled a wonderful wine tour, with Julian Pio throughout the Chianti and San Gimignano area that took us to Machiavelli’s house (very close), and several beautiful mid-evil towns. We also enjoyed dinner at the nearby restaurant, Trattoria Il Focolare which was walking distance from the Villa. It was the best steak we have ever had, and one of the best meals we had in our travels through Italy. The best part though was just spending time around the pool and at the Villa! We couldn’t have asked for a better time or a better wedding! Whenever I think about Villa I Leoni and the area surrounding, or look at pictures my eyes well up with tears of joy. A piece of my heart will always stay there, and I cannot wait to return!

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I and all our families (15 people in all, from 16-months-old up) had a week's delightful stay here. All the rooms are attractively decorated, the beds are comfortable and the showers are good. The kitchen appliances, including a dishwasher, work well, and there are lots of dishes. The pool was well-used, especially by the children, and the views from poolside are superb. The location is terrific (if you have a car) because it is so central to so many of the fabulous hill towns of Tuscany. Food stores are a short drive away, there is a winery (with not fabulous, but quite drinkable, wine) in walking distance, and the gelateria in nearby Ginestra has the best gelato we tasted in Italy.
