Chiusdino Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Converted from a 14th century convent, with view on church tower and landscape

A beautiful villa with tastefully antique furnishing in a delightful position overlooking the Tuscan landscape. The villa was converted from a 14th century convent and has its entrance at the village square next to the church. From the garden and from the pool you can enjoy beautiful views of the countryside. The garden and lawn (500 m2) are well-kept and equipped with a swimming pool (5x10 m.), changing room, bathroom and two showers, loggia, pergola for outdoor dining and barbecue. Montalcinello is close to Chiusdino and less than an hour's drive from Siena, San Gimignano, Massa Marittima and the coastal resorts of Follonica and Punta Ala.

The villa consists of 2 floors. First floor (with access from garden): living area, dining room with fireplace, small lounge, 1 double bedroom, 2 twin rooms, 3 bedrooms with large single beds, 2 bathrooms. Ground floor: loggia, living room with panoramic view, large double bedroom, 1 twin room, 2 bathrooms.

Villa Belmonte: The villa was converted from a 14th century convent and has its entrance at the village square next to the church. The villa was originally restored in 1925 and then again recently, attentive restoration work has preserved its original architectural conformation, transforming the convent into a comfortable country residence, with interiors which breathe atmosphere of elegance, all decorated with antique furniture but offering utmost comfort. Even though Villa Belmonte is located in the small village Montalcinello there is peace and quiet.

Chiusdino & Siena: Chiusdino is a nearby medieval village of that sits on top of a hill about 30 km from Siena. Views of Siena and the famous roofless San Galgano abbey can be enjoyed from the village. The fascinating roofless abbey of San Galgano is worth a visit. The area is also ideal for hiking, biking, river swimming and hot springs treatments. The magical city of Siena lies in the very heart of Tuscany and her beauty and charm have captivated visitors for centuries. Surrounded by olive groves and the vineyards of Chianti, Siena is one of the most beautiful places in all of Italy. Here you will find world class art, stunning medieval architecture and first class cuisine at your finger tips. The center of Sienese life is the Piazza del Campo where just about everyone takes an evening stroll. It is also the setting for the spectacular Palio horse race which is held every July 2nd and August 16th.

A little history of Montalcinello: For approximately 500 years, between the VIII and IX centuries, the Archbishop of Volterra inherited a vast territory where two communities were formed, one of which was called Castello di Montalcinello. In 1257, the castle was bestowed to the Sienese Ildebrando Tolomei who watched over it until 1347, after which, due to a terrible plague epidemic, he handed it over to Cav. Bocchino di Ottaviano. In 1356, the Sienese forcefully occupied Montalcinello and from that date, the inhabitants were compelled to pay a very heavy tax in order to be considered Sienese. In 1555, this led to a complete decadence of the castle.

It was then that the Grand Duke started looking after it until 1813 when the castle was rented to an aristocratic nobleman of that era, who later acquired it.

Reserving its medieval aspect, Siena has remained one of Tusany's most visited cities holding great artistic interest and a wealth of important monuments including Piazza del Campo, Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Publico, and Palazzo Sansedoni. Siena is also notorious for its Palio which takes place twice a year; once on July 2nd to commemorate the miracles of the Madonna of Provenzano and again on August 16th. San Gimignano has preserved its medieval appearance more completely than any other town in Tuscany. The town is famous for its numerous towers which make it conspicuous from a great distance and provide one of the most remarkable sights in Italy. West of San Galgano in a beautiful countryside with interesting old farmhouses, is Chiusdino, St Galganos birthplace. Take a relaxing and scenic drive to San Galgano, where the Abbey of Galgano can be visited. The pure naturalistic and fauna habitat make this area a popular destination for trekking, cycling and horse riding.
