We are nestled between the hilltop villages of montisi and San Giovanni d'asso and only 10 mins from montalcino home to the world famous brunello di montalcino.

Only 20 mins away is Siena and the renowned Palio. Come enjoy, relax and explore this unique part of the world.

Podere Ampella gives you the chance to live the relaxed Tuscan lifestyle in the idyllic setting of this exceptional hilltop hamlet overlooking the wonderful Val d’Orcia landscape, a landscape so unique that UNESCO has listed it as a world heritage site. This is the perfect location to relax and unwind, where you can choose to do as much or as little as you wish.

This hamlet has a collection of eleven privately owned villas and apartments finished to a very high standard. The hamlet has been designed in the traditional Tuscan style using local materials and the typical architectural style.

All the properties are fully furnished and well equipped; each has its own private terrace or garden and two of the villas have their own private pool. The shared pool has a paved surround furnished with loungers and parasols and is set in a stunning position overlooking the surrounding countryside.

Podere Ampella hamlet is positioned between the historic towns of San Giovanni d’Asso and Montisi where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and banks. The hamlet is ideally situated for exploring Tuscany with the cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca within easy reach, or venture over the border into Umbria to visit the historic cities of Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia.

San Giovanni D’Asso is a delightful hilltop town only 3kms from Ampella Hamlet. Dating back to medieval times the village surrounds the walls of a twelfth century castle. Here you will find traditional Tuscan restaurants and shops selling the local produce. The town boasts the only truffle museum in Italy, as well as hosting an annual truffle festival in November each year. There are also two important churches; the Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, and San Pietro in Villare. The picturesque Tuscan town of Montisi is 4kms from Ampella Hamlet. In August each year there is the annual jousting competition “Giostra di Simone” which sees many of the townsfolk dress up in medieval costume.

Bella Tuscany

We had an amazing week . As we were driving there, we turned a corner along the road somewhere after Sinalunga and the scenery took our breath away. Every hillside seemed to grow in beauty and our anticipation increased as we neared Podere Ampella and it more than met our expectations. That first evening, as we sat outside in the peaceful garden, a small bird was flying around overhead and the sun was setting towards San Giovanni D'Asso, and we relaxed for the first time in a long time. The week was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and more. We were really impressed with how beautifully finished the rooms were. We travelled to many of the surrounding villages and ate some incredible food (I'm still dreaming of a restaurant we visited in Montalcino--the pasta with truffle sauce was unlike anything I've tasted before). The photo above is of the sunrise on our last day in the villa. I love the way the hills looked when covered with that hazy glow.
Mauro was very kind, he made some wonderful suggestions to us for places to see and was very kind throughout our stay. But now of course normal life resumes and we're back to working long hours. Thank you for all your help!


Best wishes,

Andrea, Holland

The villa has everything you could ask for with a pool and the best sunsets.Our kids jenny, mike and frank had a terrific time . Our only problem arose when we had to leave not enough time.
We would definately come back and will recommend it to all our frriends.

Traumhafter Urlaub

Wir (2 Erw./ 4 Kinder 4/7/9/11) haben einen traumhaften Urlaub in der Villa San Giovanni verbracht.

Das Haus entspricht sehr genau der Beschreibung/Fotos und ist durch das separate App. im Keller mit eigener Küche sogar für 2 Familien gut geeignet. Der private Pool ( nicht separat eingezäunt) ist sauber und gepflegt. Badezimmer/Duschen sind klasse.

Der Blick von der Terasse ist wirklich einzigartig !!!!!!!!!!!

Durch das abgetrennte Grundstück (sogar mit eigener Zufahrt) ist man für sich und bekommt von den anderen Gästen auf der kleinen Anlage Podere Ampella nicht viel mit. Die Anlage liegt allerdings relativ nah an der mäßig befahren Straße.

Paola und Robert wohnen direkt auf der Anlage und sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Die Küche könnte noch etwas besser ausgestattet sein.
Insektenschutzgitter vor den Fenstern fehlen leider.
Es steht nur ein Sonnenschirm für Terasse und Pool zur Verfügung.

Nur ca. 5 min entfernt ist das Ristorante del Castello in San Giovanni D Asso (unbedingt den Hauswein probieren). Sehr empfehlenswert.
Montalcino ist in ca. 15 min erreichbar. Sinalunga in ca. 20 min.

Die Villa San Giovanni ist sehr zu empfehlen. Wir werden bestimmt wieder hinfahren.
