This very attractive villa was originally built in the second half of the 19th century, and has been completely renovated throughout. The views from the property are like a picture of typical Chianti landscape, rich with gently rolling hills covered with vineyards and olive groves. Only 4 kms away from Greve in Chianti, Montoro is an ideal base for sightseeing and trips in the Chianti area and to both the larger Tuscan cities, like Florence and Siena, and the smaller towns. Within the well-maintained fenced garden with trees and flower beds, there is a swimming pool, surrounded by a terrace. Its structure makes Montoro suitable also for children. The interiors of the house are furnished with comfortable, traditional furniture, antiques and there is a very well-equipped kitchen and modern bathrooms. A wireless LAN network has been installed at the property for guests who wish to access internet during their stay. The property also has SKY cable television which allows guests to view movies, news and cartoons in English.

The views, the villa, the owner, Manuela & Sergio ... FANTASTIC! Most of the group utilized the pool and loved it. Overall though the recurring comments involved the absolutely impeccable cleanliness so although we didn't feel a couple hours a day maid service would matter to us -- WOW! The place is spotless -- and that included every single window throughout the entire week. How does she get them so clean??? Everyone commented on the floors and the windows being pristine all week.
