About the property

Villa in Montelopio, Tuscany, Italy

Villa la Fauci is a traditional 19th century Tuscan farmhouse with a unique design, converted into a luxury holiday rental in one of the lesser known areas of Tuscany, away from all the crowds. Instead, you are surrounded by nothing but olive groves, vineyards and golden fields of wheat that patchwork the landscape, where wild boar, foxes and deer roam freely.

This loving restoration has stayed loyal to the buildings past, maintaining the original terracotta tiles, gorgeous chestnut wood beams and interior stone walls, whilst adding lavish modern furnishings and the large infinity pool to create the perfect marriage of old and new.

This region has forever been a place of rest, and was where the Knights Templar would come to soothe mind, body and soul during the time of the Crusades. Come follow this tradition with friends or family, and experience this timeless area of peace and relaxation, steeped in ancient history.Situated where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, the villa is just a short distance from the well preserved historical towns of Volterra and San Gimignano.

The village of Montelopio, about 1 km from the Villa, boasts an ancient history. The Etruscans, Longobards, the seafaring Republic of Pisa, the Templars and the noble families of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany have all left their traces as they passed through or settled, attracted by this “prosperous hill”.
