The Bologna family moved in the area in 1785 after purchasing a large amount of territory in the south part of the Granduchy of Tuscany. Since then they have been living in the area, managing the farming estates.

In the centuries the large property has been divided within the different brothers in smaller farming estates. Tenuta Montefreddo is one of the farming estates and it is now managed by Francesco Bologna, who is proud to continue the work of his ancestors.

Francesco e Olivia Bologna purchased this villa in 1785

Francesco and his family are deeply linked to this land. Here they have their roots and their memories.

Tenuta Montefreddo is a secluded and exclusive location with a marvellous hilltop view. The silence, the atmosphere, the breeze.... all will all contribute to relax your mind and spirit.

The house is elegantly furnished and each detail will contribute to make you feel at home.

PERFECT LOCATION AND STUNNING VILLA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Acerona Countryhouses. We had a great rapport with the owner, Olivia, from the first exchange of emails. When we arrived, we were mesmerised by the beauty of the landscape surrounding Acerona, and the farmhouse itself. It has been beautifully renovated, preserving its history.

The apartment we stayed in was large, airy, light, very clean, with a fully equipped kitchen. There is a lovely terrace where we ate breakfast and dinner looking out to the Tuscany hills.

We also enjoyed Olivia's tips - she has a lot of suggestions, as she told us she had worked as a tourist guide. At the same time, we had a lot of privacy.

We wished we had stayed longer, and we will definitely plan to stay there again for a week or so. It's the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, within easy reach of many lovely Tuscan towns and villages.

Don't leave without purchasing Acerona farm's own olive oil!

Thank you very much, Olivia!

A PIECE OF TUSCAN HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 (2 children aged 10 and 12) along with my sister stayed at this beautiful Villa for a week. The owners have successfully outfitted this home with all that travellers would need to make it the perfect 'home away from home'-in fact better than home! The adults each had a room with an ensuite while the children also had their own room and shared a very large bathroom.
The kitchen was very pleasant to cook in and take our meals. We even booked a cooking lesson which all of us enjoyed.
The pool area is set away from the home but with magnificent views. There are plenty of deck chairs, a shower and even a covered patio to take a break from the sun.
We were able to make several day trips to major tourist towns like Siena and San Gimignano, but nearby San Casciano dei Bagni and Pieve are equally interesting. Our next visit would be spent touring these smaller local villages and spending more time at the Villa itself by the pool, making use of the many patios and sitting areas the house has to offer. The children were happy improving their ping pong skills!
The owners are extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. We look forward to coming back!

Our property is close to the enchanting medieval hamlet of San Casciano dei Bagni, in the province of Siena, in that unspoiled corner of Tuscany near Umbria and Lazio.

The area was well known by the Etruscans and the Romans for its warm water springs and the beauty of the landscape.

The medieval village is built around the neo-gothic Bologna castle, the XII century church of San Leonardo and Cassiano and its original bell tower. The narrow and winding streets of the village often opens in to beautiful sceneries, showing an enchanted landscape and views on the Cetona mountain and on the Amiata mountain (the sacred mountain of the Etruscans).

As in most Italians villages, the heart is the main square that has a beautiful view on the Rigo Valley. Although San Casciano is a small and quite place, it offers shops and services for almost every need.
