Overview

Siena Villa Rental Photos and Description

Superb Tuscan accommodation for 2 - 17+ persons with swimming pool

CHRISTMAS WEEK 2015 STILL AVAILABLE only £2395/week BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT

Montelandi is a typical Tuscan villa set in 14 acres of gardens and woodland above the Via Cassia, the old pilgrim road from Siena to Rome.The semi circular front garden gives a panoramic view of the ValD’Arbia and from the terrace we look across the valley to Montalcino, the little town famous throughout the world for its ‘Brunello di Montalcino’. It is a beautiful holiday home, private, peaceful and little changed for generations.

The villa developed from a farmhouse or wine fattoria many hundreds of years old. It became the summer residence and hunting lodge of the Crocchi, the principal family of the region who lived in the Castello in Torrenieri. Montelandi is now owned by Michael and Eleanor from the UK who have tried to remember their own holiday experiences and needs as they've welcomed guests to Tuscany over the years.

The local market town is Buonconvento, a medieval walled town with good shops, and plenty of restaurants and cafes. It has a weekly market on Saturdays and an interesting art gallery in a Liberty style villa near the Town Hall. There are small reasonably priced local trattoria and a great variety of eating places from farmhouses to outstanding gourmet restaurants on the vineyards.

There are the famous hill towns, Siena Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza to visit, the great Abbey of Monte Olivetto Maggiore and the beautiful Abbey Church of St Antimo. From the station at Buonconvento you can take trains to Siena or Florence or to Grosetto on the coast and to Rome The Crete is famous walking country and from Montelandi you can, for example walk to Monte Olivetto or Montalcino. It is a good idea to have a lift back after enjoying lunch!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Montelandi with two other families, totalling 14 of us and there was more than enough space to accommodate us all. We flew into Pisa airport and arrived at 2am to be greeted by the wonderful Claudio. The villa was amazing with its vaulted ceilings, large fire places, large rooms and antique furnishings, but the views of the Tuscan hillsides were beautiful and I can only hope that my memory will hold them forever. The pool was well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and there was a herb garden which we used to create lovely pasta dishes. We hired a car and visited Siena, Montalcino and Montepulciano which were also enjoyed by our teenage children. We visited restaurants in the local villages, Buonconvento and Torrenieri and found the locals to be very friendly. All of the families found the holiday relaxing and we do hope to visit again.

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.
