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.
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.'
