Sleeps 4, Sleeps 5, Sleeps 6
An authentic character farmhouse leeping 17, is a typical Tuscan villa set in 14 acres of gardens and woodland above the Via Cassia, the old pilgrim road from Siena to Rome.The semi circular front garden gives a panoramic view of the ValD’Arbia and from the terrace we look across the valley to Montalcino famous throughout the world for its ‘Brunello di Montalcino’. Wine tasting and recommendations available as we are passionate about wine. This family home is both private and peaceful and little changed for generations. The villa developed from a farmhouse or wine fattoria many hundreds of years old. It became the summer residence and hunting lodge of the Crocchi, the principal family of the region who lived in the Castello in Torrenieri. Montelandi is our own home in Italy when we travel and not like the usual holiday accommodation we have known. In the summer we let the house to visitors and we have tried to remember our own holiday experiences and needs so you can enjoy the home to the maximum. The villa sleeps 17 in total, 13 in the main house with 4 bathrooms and 4 more guests in two double ensuites in the ground floor with 2 bathrooms. Complimentary wifi included.

The Villa is set between Montalcino and Buonconvento.
Both villages have excellent facilities. Buonconvento is a hidden gem away from mass tourists giving you a true taste of authentic tuscan life. Reasonably priced, all amenities and welcoming, friendly locals are often used phrases guests use to describe the village. Lots of shops, delicatessens, butchers, fruiterers, grocers, artisan, leather and fashion shops. There are Trattoria, restaurants, bars and cafès. An art gallery, a museum and frequent fiestas and events. The home is set in the heart of the rolling countryside of the Crete within easy reach of historic little cities such as Pienza, Montepulciano and Siena.Magnificent abbeys, castles and churches such as Monte Olivetto and St Antimo await.
Other Activities: Wine tasting, Hot Spas, Monasteries, Art Galleries
We can offer some suggestions for :-
Wine tasting, painting and cookery lessons. Also cycle tours.
Truffle hunting (when in season)
Golf. We are passionate about good food and wine so will happily recommend the best restaurants and local trattoria’s as well as little known wineries close by to sample some of the best wines in Tuscany.
Nearest beach is in Folllonica.
However there is so much to see of beauty and historical value here in Val D’orcia plus restaurants and wineries to explore, we think the Tuscan countryside will keep you more than occupied for a week or more!
Nearest airports: Pisa, Florence, Rome. All within 1-2 hours by car.
We recommend you hire a car for your stay.
This will enable you to see the Tuscan country side at its best.
30 Kilometres south of Siena. 6 Kilometres from Buonconvento 3 Kilometres from Torrenieri. Near to Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, San Quirico D’Orcia.

Important notes on accommodation:
On the ground floor the old wine fattoria has been converted to provide spacious open plan areas linked by archways and leading out onto terraces at the front and the side of the house. The kitchen and breakfast room open into a dining area and from there through French Windows to a pergola shaded al fresco dining area. The views are across the garden to Montalcino and down the Val d’Arbia towards the Val d’Orcia and Monte Amiata, the highest mountain in middle Italy, snow capped and with slopes covered in chestnut trees. Outside: Gardens For more privacy, so as not to be located directly next to a party using the main part of the villa and the main terrace.’ The herb garden is just below the kitchen. It has Lemons, Mint, Tarragon, Basil, Chives, Rosemary, Sage, Parsley, Thyme. The vegetable garden and the orchard have produce in season for visitors. There are 14 acres of woodland. A pathway leads to 2 small lakes at the top of the woods. You can follow a path from the gates that takes you around the bottom of the hill and back up to the garden. The swimming pool is fenced in and beyond it there is a space to play badminton. The home is designed in such a way that the large garden enjoys two areas for alfresco dining so guests staying at the apartment can dine at the side of the home for more privacy or directly infront of the arched doorway into the garden so not located directly next to the remainder of the party using the home and the shared garden area.
