Tuscany at its best

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in the serenity of the Tuscan hills. Property owners are attentive to every detail. We would definitely return to this home over and over. We saw some of the wine harvest, cooked our own meals, and enjoyed the estate wines. Lovely experience.

You don't have enough stars,it is more than5 stars!! Eileen from Boston Ma.

To say this villa, the owners, and the estate are great......is such an understatement!!! I am a professional Interior Designer, and as such, I like my surroundings to be in good to great taste: original art, beautiful wood beams, beautiful surroundings, etc.! There were 4 of us, all are extremely well traveled, and all are used to staying in high end hotels wherever we stay. ............well!, not only did our group get all of that and more, this villa and the family who run it were so far beyond anything we ever hoped for..! The views from the villa are breathtaking, we never wanted to leave the covered veranda ( pictured here).....sitting there with wine and cheese, and a gorgeous view, became our favorite pastime. !! Incredible!!....Of course, we took day trips, and we ate at wonderful Italian restaurants, but, our favorite place to eat was the villa! We grilled meat, seafood, vegetables,and then went to the veranda with wine and dinner, and ate and enjoyed the company of each other. There are several villas on the property, they are located far enough away from each other, so you have all the privacy you need or want.

A wonderful family run this estate so there was ALWAYS someone to help, weather with meeting us and helping with directions, or for whatever we needed. Each person has a different part... they run it like a well oiled machine!!! When we arrived, there was a wine rack stocked with wonderful wines, these wines come from their own vineyards and are extremely delicious and very well priced. Tullio had the wine rack stacked full when we arrived, we saved the bottles and the day we left Tullio came over to the villa, checked out how many bottles we drank.......(and no,I am not going say how many bottles 4 women were able to drink in 6 days!! ).....we wrote a check for what we drank, and wanted so very much to bring some of their great tasting, well priced wines back with us!!!

One thing that you really need to pay attention to: The villa is about 5+min.out of Sienna, it is a villa in the country. You will need to either take a cab to and from town, and cabs are plentiful!.... or rent a car to get around the area. We rented a car, and took some day trips to other towns, Orvieto, etc. we had planned on doing more driving, but only one of us felt comfortable driving on the highways, and the narrow town roads.

Bottom Line: This villa, the wine, and the owners were far beyond expectations!! We can't wait to go back!!

A Rare Tuscan Gem

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we met Anna, the experience was, without a doubt, fabulous. The Villa was even more than we had anticipated. The views from every room - the space for family gatherings and alone time was perfect. Thank you for your gracious hospitality Anna, and we will be back - Promise!!

A slice of authentic Tuscan paradise

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely beautiful with spectacular views of Siena, Tuscan hills, and has an authentic charm that can be difficult to find in other locations. The villa is owned and run by an extremely helpful and welcoming family who will be there for assistance at check in/out and for needs accordingly. Villa is just as described, however the beauty and grander are understated, this is a beautiful home.

The family organized a spectacular Sienese chef to come and cook in the home (kitchen is beautiful and huge with great views, pictures do not do it justice) which was a terrific and delicious experience.

In total we were traveling with a group of 10 (one baby) my family (American) and my Italian husband. We all loved the villa and hope to get back for another stay soon.

Spacious and very clean rooms, with beautiful bathrooms and views, with antique touches that come with hundreds of years of tender love and care that the family has given to these homes.

About 10-15 minutes drive into the city center of Siena (short distance, however small and curvy roads) and great location for accessibility to other Tuscan cities and enjoyment. A little paradise in the hills above the unique city of Siena.

Highly recommended and cannot wait to return :)

Grazie mille per tutto e speriamo di tornare presto alla vostra bellissima villa!

Astounding beauty and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Montelisi could not have been more wonderful! The villa itself is both elegant and totally comfortable. We cooked most of our meals in the well-appointed kitchen and we slept deeply and well each night in the lovely bedrooms, each of us having a beautiful private bath. When we arrived, Tullio and Paola left us with a beautiful and delicious tray of salami, cheeses, apple and wine. This was perfect after a long day of travel. We sat in the covered patio off the courtyard, overlooking some of the most beautiful landscapes we had ever seen. It is a breathtaking setting. We took walks all over the estate, marveling at the rows of grape vines and olive trees. Our time near Siena was better than we even imagined. Tuscany at its finest! This was the highlight of our trip and we are now home, savoring the memories as we look at the pictures we took. We would strongly recommend this villa and the wonderful Morfini family who owns it!

Home for 7 days

  • 5 of 5

After five days in the region of the Amalfi Coast four couples arrived at Villa Montelisi. What a wonderful experience and villa to stay in. Close to Siena and surrounding Tuscan towns. The property was as advertised and then some.....such character and views. The owners...Anna, Tullio and Duccio were very helpful and wonderful to us. It was grape harvest season and we were treated to a fantastic property tour and explanation of the wine making process. A very private location, great pool, and well appointed facility. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone or return again ourselves in the future. Very relaxing and quiet.
