About the property

Monte di Rota


The houses of the estate Monte Rota belong to Agriturismo Ustori and are located in Valdambra, magical valley in the heart of Tuscany, at the western border of Chianti. Here we have restored two ancient houses where our guests can spend a quiet holiday surrounded by nature. Thanks to its central location between the cities of Siena, Arezzo and Florence, Valdambra is ideal for guests who wish to stay alternating relax and rest with visits to cities of art or wine tours.

The estate Monte Rota is situated on one of the highest hills of the territory already inhabited by the ancient Etruscans, and its beautiful landscape ranges from the vineyards of Chianti to Siena. The peace that reigns in Monte Rota is total: no noise of cars passing, no voice, excluding those of the guests.


The pearl of Monte Rota is finally the large infinity pool, cascading on four sides and provided with a separate area for children: the large solarium, the terrace and the surrounding garden with gazebos reserved for each group offer a spectacular view on the mountains of Chianti. The swimming pool and the play area make our homes ideal in summer for families with children, while in mid and low season they are perfect for a peaceful and quiet stay of a couple of a group. Even the four legged friends are welcome, and here they will find plenty of space to run and play safely.

Guests have access to the laundry room and the large wood-burning oven, where you can easily prepare breads, pastries, pizzas and roasts of all kinds, with the wood from our forests.


The buiding was built as a summer mansion, and still retains its ancient character: bright, harmonic, impressive, panoramic, intimate.

The present building is a house divided into two floors.

On the ground floor is the spacious kitchen (with island work), the dining room and a living room with sofa bed and a TV that can become the fourth bedroom with en suite bathroom (with a Jacuzzi tub).

The first floor has three double bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom.

The kitchen leads to a rear loggia with a large dining table, which offers a wonderful view over the Chianti hills. From the loggia you enter into an additional living room with three sofas and TV-SAT.

The house has a private garden and intimate with lighted gazebo and a private barbecue.


The Casa Vecchia is divided into three apartments:

Ground floor:

- The PONTE offers three double bedrooms with bathrooms, a loggia and a private garden with barbecue;

First floor:

- The SCALA offers two bedrooms, one with double bed and one with two or three single beds and a panoramic terrace;

- The PONTE offers a romantic double bedroom with bathroom, a living room with double sofa bed and bathroom, a garden with barbecue.

The SCALA and the PONTE can be rented together, being connected by a door (otherwise closed and isolated acoustically). Is thus formed the large apartment SCALA&PONTE, excellent for groups of two families.

Absolut empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Juni zwei Wochen im Appartment Scala verbracht und waren begeistert.

Die Kommunikation vor und während unseres Aufenthaltes mit dem Gastgeber Gianluca war immer freundlich und sehr herzlich.

Das Grundstück ist sehr groß und bietet besonders Kindern (unsere sind 3 und 5) viel Platz zum Spielen und Entdecken.

Der Pool hat einen abgetrennten Bereich für Kleinkinder, was den Badespaß verdoppelt.

Die Aussicht ist wunderschön und die Ruhe unglaublich, da sich in der näheren Umgebung keine weiteren Häuser befinden.

Die Umgebung bietet sich für Spaziergänge und Wanderungen an. Auch kürzere Strecken sind mit kleineren Kindern gut machbar.

Die Ausstattung (besonders der Küche) ist sehr gut und gepflegt. Im Garten gibt es einen Holzofen, den wir mehrmals für leckere Pizza genutzt haben, und auch einen Grill.

Es war rundum ein wirklich schöner Urlaub und wir können diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!

Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Ein Traumurlaub zum Wiederholen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren über Pfingsten für 14 Tage hier. Für uns war es wie im Paradies. Da wir die erste Woche alleine in der Anlage waren, hatten wir die absolute Ruhe. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts. Der Pool und die Sonnenterassen laden zum Sonnenbaden ein. Außerdem gibt es eine Bouleanlage, ein Groß-Schach im Wald und einen Kinderspielplatz. Eine Sauna ist gerade im Aufbau. Außerdem ein Backhaus, in dem man im Holzbackofen leckere Pizza backen kann. Direkt daneben auch noch ein Grill.

Am liebsten würden wir sofort wieder hin fahren. Aber jetzt hat uns erst einmal der Alltag wieder. Es ist aber ein Ort, an dem man sicher mehrfach Urlaub machen will.

Motorway A1, exit Valdarno, then continue for Bucine and Ambra.

Due to its location, Monte di Rota is an ideal base for touring both the Valdambra (Ambra valley) and the Chianti.

By car, it takes about half an hour to reach Arezzo, Siena, thermal baths and many of the small picturesque villages for which Tuscany is so famous.

It takes less than an hour to go to Florence, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza and Cortona.

It is about one hour and a half for a beautiful drive to Pisa and the magnificent beaches of the Tyrrhenian sea.
