TUSCAN HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
What can i say that will adequately sum up this wonderful home?
The skies, the landscape, the jasmine scented garden, the tranquility, the pool, the space the home affords, candlelit evenings under the pergola drinking Brunello and enjoying a fiorentina on the bbq. This was our forth stay at Montelandi having first spent our honeymoon here in 2000. We return once more this year for a 3 week stay this time. We cannot recommend the home highly enough. The location to Montelandi and the vinyards, majestic landscape of Val D'orcia with it's rolling hills and accessibility to Siena make Montelandi an ideal base to explore southern Tuscany. Buonconvento is only a short drive and offers you a chance to delve into a tuscan village time seemingly forgot. The trattoria's, the cafe bars, the marketplace and the welcoming locals all make this the perfect base for your tuscan sojourn. Montelandi as a villa be it for two or as the perfect get together for large family gatherings won't disappoint.

Montelandi is a historic Villa in classic Tuscan style that was at one time a hunting lodge for the family that lived in the Castello in the village. It stands above the Via Cassia, the old pilgrim road from Florence and Siena to Rome, just beyond the old walled town of Buonconvento.From the terraces and gardens we look across the valley to Montalcino and the Brunello vineyards. Montalcino is probably the most famous wine town in Italy – so there are many vineyards to visit and tastings to be done!

Buonconvento is a delightful little town with lots of shops, delicatessens, butchers, fruiterers, grocers, artisan, leather and fashion shops. There are Trattoria, restaurants, bars and cafès. An art gallery, a museum and frequent festas and events.Montelandi is at the heart of the rolling countryside of the Crete within easy reach of historic little cities such as Pienza, Montepulciano and Siena. There are magnificent abbeys, castles and churches such as Monte Olivetto and St Antimo

Other Activities: Wine tasting, Hot Spas, Monasteries, Art Galleries

Notes:
Claudio, who looks after the Villa, will be able to help you with any of your needs during your stay at Montelandi. Alessandra will prepare special meals and can also give cooking lessons, if requested in advance. The Herb garden below the kitchen provides a variety of herbs for the cook of the day, along with the vegetable garden and the orchard, which have seasonal produce and guests are welcome to during their stay. The Crete is an area where the land undulates like the waves and tall Cypress trees stand alone or lining the drives to houses and farms. It is great walking country, but, don't worry, you don't need a tour guide - just a map. If you are not a serious walker you can anyway access all areas of interest by car. The Vineyards are the special attraction of the area. There are many with tasting rooms and restaurants for the local wines and other local produce. There is also Horse riding, Tennis, Hot Springs and Beauty Therapy available locally.
