Overview

About the property

The holiday-house Monteriggioni Castello is considered to be a suite for all the elegance and comfort it offers. It is within the walls of Monteriggioni in one of the castle’s picturesque, medieval streets. Monteriggioni Castello has the typology of a Tuscan hut, separated from the other houses and with its own independent entrance. It has one floor and is 68m² wide with 2 bedrooms – one having a double-bed and one having 2 separate beds – a kitchen, a dining-room, a bathroom with a shower and a hair-dryer, a laundry room, a private courtyard and a private parking-space with an automatic gate. It can house 5 people ( 4 + 1 ). Entrance to the house is through a private entry: once the gate is opened you walk into a private courtyard for the exclusive use of our guests. From the courtyard one goes to the warm and welcoming dining-room. The hall has wooden beams, walls of stone and a traditional floor in paved “cotto fiorentino” which have all been restored to their original splendor. These, together with the antique furniture, create a delicate atmosphere. Despite its antique style, the hall has modern comforts such as a satellite tv, internet, a video-recorder, a dvd and cd-player and a safe. The kitchen is the traditional Tuscan style with hot and cold water-taps, a cooker, an oven and a fridge. It also has spare crockery for your own guests. The bed-rooms have been white-washed in warm colors, with bedspreads to match, studied to strike and steal our visitors’ emotions. In the 2-bed bedroom, the colors of the walls are subtle with scenes of Tuscan countryside. From the window one can see the gardens, the village’s walls and the medieval towers. The other bedroom is very big with carpets and a romantic atmosphere. Our guests will therefore find themselves in an unusual, luxurious and exclusive place with an atmosphere that blends spiritual well-being with physical and mental relaxation.

Great location, lovely hostess

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. Would have been 5 star but toilet very difficult to flush and ran out of toilet paper. We loved our home and Elizabeth was charming and very helpful. We would love to return some day

Charming apartment in a charming place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Elisabeth’s beautiful apartment in Monteriggioni. It’s very well appointed and very comfortable, and having a washing machine and use of the line in the beautiful garden was really helpful. Elisabeth was helpful and accessible if we needed anything. Lovely to have the wee terrace to sit and have breakfast outside.

Monteriggioni is a beautiful place and a great base for exploring eg Siena, San Gimignano. You’ll have to drive to get your supplies in though if you are self catering to any extent - though you’ll get croissants fresh from the oven at the local store cafe if you get there at 9:15am prompt - be quick or they’ll all be gone!

A Beautiful House in a Fascinating Environment

  • 5 of 5

Elisabetta made us very welcome and was available at all times to give us help and advice. The house was unusually well furnished and met all our needs. It was an advantage to be able to park our hire car in Elisabetta's garden which was very close to the house. Monteriggioni is a village within a castle with several restuarants/bars and interesting shops and businesses. There are several nearby small towns/villages with supermarkets, restuarants and bars and Siena is only a few miles away. The house is very well situated for touring the beautiful countryside of the Chianti wine growing area.

Unique place to stay!

Perfect holiday home, beautifully furnished inside a medieval walled village with amazing views of the countryside. It was a perfect base for visiting nearby Sienna & Florence.

Perfect base for relaxing and exploring Tuscany at Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holiday House. The villa was delightful with many additional special touches set among the historic castle walls. We really enjoyed walking up the street to the restaurants in the village for dinner or breakfast. The village is beautiful and the villa allows you to enjoy being part of the residents within the walls, with wonderful support from the owners. They were terrific and very helpful with suggestions and offering to make reservations or assist in any way. Our family enjoyed our short visit and will look forward to returning to this villa for another stay. Everything was well supplied, clean and made our visit to Tuscany very memorable.
