The Castle of Montalto has long been family owned, first by the Berardenga family, then by the Palmieri, and finally by ourselves, Giovanni and Diana Coda-Nunziante, who acquired it from cousins in 1970.

You may read more on Montalto’s history for more details on the castle’s rich past, going back over 1,000 years - See wikipedia or our website at: http://www.montalto.it/history-montalto-castle-tuscany.shtml

Giovanni is Italian, Diana is American; we both speak fluent Italian and English, fairly fluent French, some German and a very little Spanish. A part-time concierge speaks fluent German. We live here all year round, with more space than we need, space that we are happy to share with our guests.

Giovanni & Diana Coda Nunziante purchased this house in 1970

We enjoy this life, not only because the income helps to maintain the estate, but especially because the people who choose to come out to the country to spend their vacation in beautiful surroundings in an historic context, who welcome the simple life and the opportunity to visit the famous and less-known art treasures of this incredibly rich area of Italy, are people we like. We enjoy the opportunity to invite them into our home, to show them our collection of ancient weapons and to recount the history and legends of the castle, and we enjoy talking to them. Many have become our lasting friends.

Montalto Castle is in the center of an estate of 270 hectares, about 650 acres. While two thirds are woodlands, the rest is planted. Annual crops include wheat, sunflowers, alfalfa, canola and others, depending on the year. A portion of the land is planted in olive groves. There is also a vegetable garden and a chicken coop, and a bee keeper sets out his hives on our land.

The farm is certified organic. No pesticides, chemical fertilizers or weed killers are used.

Tenants of the houses at the castle can buy our extra-virgin olive oil, honey, eggs and garden vegetables in season, at cost. Also available at a discount are good Chianti wines produced at the Spalletti winery belonging to relatives of the owners, in the Chianti Rufina area near Florence. (read more about Chianti wines)

In addition to these agricultural products, we often have ceramic and porcelain objects for sale, hand-decorated by local artists.

GREAT MOMENT AT MONTALTO FOR A GROUP OF 29

  • 5 of 5
We were a group with complicated needs : a place for work, lot of rooms for different families and individuals, support for cooking, etc... It was a perfect place! Quiet, poetic, practical. A swimming pool in the nature, a large place for a large barbecue. We had breakfast and lunch there : Italian food is always a pleasure.
Giovanni and Diana Coda Nunziante invited our group for a visit and presentation of the history of Montalto and Tuscany. Impressive.
Alexander welcomed all our requests, made his best to provide an answer and gave lots good informations about the surroundings.
Confortable beds, well equiped kitchens, views. The appartments were best in class.

LIKE A FAIRY TALE

  • 5 of 5
We are still talking about what a peaceful and relaxing time we had at Castello di Montalto. Is enchanting too superfluous a word to use? The hospitality we experienced from the owners and the staff is just not experienced these days, not even for triple the price. Nothing can compare to a castle with over 1000 years of history and character, and yet modern enough for families with young children. You have to use the written directions as GPS is useless to find the place. The only mistake we made is not spending more time there.

AN IDEAL VACATION SITE

  • 5 of 5
With a group of friends, I have just completed my fifth stay at Montalto, this time in Loggia. And again, all of my party found that our stay was excellent value for money. Warm welcome, helpful and informative staff, perfect location for exploration of Tuscany. When we weren't out sightseeing, we enjoyed the pool or the walking opportunities around the castle. The nearby village of Castelnuovo became our second home, with so many excellent dining opportunities and good local shopping. Once again, our enjoyment of the Montalto experience was underscored by the hospitality and warmth of Diana and Giovanni, and by the consistent helpfulness of Alexander. I look forward eagerly to my next visit, and warmly commend Montalto to prospective visitors to Tuscany. Michael (Australia)

Montalto castle is the ideal home base for interspersing quiet days of rest and relaxation with interesting local excursions, because there is so much within reach.

This is a great way to get to know a country in depth, and far more relaxing than an exhausting whirlwind tour of Italy. Whether you are interested in art and culture or want to sample the local food and world-famous Chianti and Brunello wine, or to relax and rejuvenate with a day at a spa, you will find it all in the area surrounding the castle.

There is too much to list in a single page, so we’ve tried to organize some information on our website- See more at: http://www.montalto.it/area-tourism-italy.shtml
