Villa Maddalena was purchased as a labor of love and has grown and matured with carefully collected plants, art and antiques. Food and wine are family passions so 5 sizes of wine glasses and a fully equipped kitchen await you. And 60 Italian cookbooks. And an antique piano.

Marcia Gamble Hadley purchased this villa in 2002

Montisi is a hill town that sits, surrounded by cultivated lands - olives and grapes - and wild wood lands. The village is lively and active, with 6 restaurants and cafes, a hot air ballooning business, a cinema and a wine tasting cantina run by experts. But at the same time the village remains gentle and rural. Few people speak English. The bakery sells out by 1 pm. The wine and oil are still made as they have been for a century. It's a taste of Italy as it is now difficult to find.

Villa Maddalena is comfortable for a few couples, a family or when it is full. There are lots of nooks and crannies to read a book you found in the library, play a board game from the kids' room or enjoy a glass of wine sitting quietly. And yet outside the front door is a lively village and all that can offer. Relax and listen and hear about the life of a small village where some families have lived for 400 years. There is lots to learn and appreciate when you slow down and 'settle in.'

Happy in Montisi 2009

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends from the Seattle area made beautiful Villa Maddalena our home for a week in the spring of 2009. It was perfect! We enjoyed every aspect of this unique villa, and also the darling little hill top town of Montisi. We were 4 couples and 3 single ladies. Enjoyed cooking together in the large lovely kitchen, and even had a special formal dinner prepared for us one evening that was over the top a wonderful Tuscany experience. Highly recommend Villa Maddalena. The central location for day trips around Tuscany was perfect!

Montisi is an ancient medieval hill town set in the woods, olive groves and vineyards of the quiet part of Tuscany, in the heart of wine country - brunello, Vino Nobile and Chianti. Pienza, Montalcino, Perugia, Deruta, Montepulciano, Siena and Florence are all possible day trips. Licensed guides and chefs are available. The kitchen is perfect for those who like to cook. Hands-on lessons can be arranged. The private garden has vegetables and herbs and a small swimming pool - unusual for an in-village house. 9 bedrooms, 8 baths make the house perfect for families but with enough spaces, inside and out to have privacy and peace. The wine, cheeses and cuisine of this area are justifiably famous. This is a much-loved private home. Contact us if some time to 'settle in' in the midst of Italian culture and pace is of interest to you, your family and friends.

You become a resident here and you will find you are welcome. We look forward to hearing from you if you think you'd like to 'settle in' at Villa Maddalena, Montisi, Siena Province. Baci.
