Beautiful Tuscan retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's holiday at the beautiful Monte Castelli.

The villa itself is comfortable and spacious and is situated in an amazing position overlooking the Chianti hills. The infinity pool and jacuzzi are spectacular and make the climb down the steps to reach them worthwhile! We couldn't wait to return to cool off after a morning of sightseeing in Siena or wine tasting at one of the local wineries.

The owner of the villa is very friendly and cooked a wonderful 8-course meal for us (at a very reasonable cost including wine it is to be recommended!) and it was great to eat local Tuscan cuisine under the grape vines.

We all agreed to return to Monte Castelli very soon and would highly recommend it if you want a taste of the real Italy.

Très chouette villa, tres belle et agréable ! Mais

  • 3 of 5

rien a redire la villa est superbe, tant le bâtiment que les aménagements, les proprios tres sympas, le village très chouette, la piscine paradisiaque et la grande table et le barbecue très agréables surtout en grde chaleur !!!

Pq uniquement 3 étoiles me direz vous alors?? ben simplement parce que entre d'une part la villa, d'autre part la table ombragée et le coin barbec et d'autre part encore le coin piscine qui est réellement a couper le souffle: il y a une route: oui vous avez bien compris, ces 3 entités sont séparées physiquementil y a une petite route entre la villa et un coin repas qui est dans un enclos entre trois routes et encore une descente a faire sur qqes mètre d’asphalte de cette route avant d'arriver au dessus de la série de marche qui conduisent au coin piscine (avec douche, sanitaire, coin lounge....) voila le gros handicape de ce tres bel endroit dans ce village convivial...mais ça ne nous a pas empêcher de passer du très bon temps...

The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the north west and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West. From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.

Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated. Florence is the capital of Tuscany. Other important cities are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Prato, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara.
