Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Monterchi - MONTEMILIANO
6 lovely bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps 10-14 plus extra beds, panoramic pool
Welcome to Montemiliano, our home in Tuscany, a beautiful 17th century farmhouse surrounded by 12 hectares of wheat and olive grove, which overlooks Monterchi, medieval jewel of the Tiber Valley. The Farmhouse seems like a small country hamlet from long ago where the manor dominates the Tabaccaia (old tobacco drying tower), the Fienile (hay barn), and the Rimessa. Lovely restored, respecting both the original architecture and the benefits of modern comforts. Montemiliano can offer accommodation for up to 20 people in 2 self-catering apartments or in 2/3 or 4-bedded rooms, overlooking a well-kept garden with shady gazebo. Its large (14x6m) swimming pool, on a natural terrace surrounded by green hills, has magnificent 360° views. The discreet presence on site of the owners ensures stricter supervision and, on request, assistance for additional services (transfers, booking for tourist and cultural events, shopping). Montemiliano is open all year and can accept small animals.
Sightseeing: The tiny ancient village of Monterchi, is situated on the road to Città di Castello in the Tiber Valley, 30 kilometres from Arezzo in unique countryside with splendid vistas, looking across to small hilltop towns and villages with the Apennine mountain range forming the backdrop in the far distance. The major sights of Central Italy are a short drive away along the A1 motorway or E45 freeway: Arezzo, Cortona Siena, Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Lake Trasimeno are only 1 hour drive. No more than 2 hours drive to reach Florence, the Chianti wine Region, Montepulciano, Montalcino, San Marino and the Adriatic or Tirrenic seaside resorts. Just another hour drive to reach Rome.
Not Only Relaxing: For the more athletic, there are many sports you can do nearby: tennis courts and a golf course are only a 5-minutes drive away and for those who love water sports, in 15 minutes you can reach a beautiful lake where you can go fishing, canoeing and even surf. Discover the local restaurants and trattorie to taste Tuscan and Umbrian gastronomy (wine, oil, truffles, mushrooms and Fiorentina beefsteak): we can recommend you our favourites! Don’t miss the interesting opportunities for shopping (antiques, delicatessen specialities, clothes and accessories); Italy's fashion houses outlets are not far away. Attend the numerous events that take place in the area: lot of festivals, shows, historical parades, folklore celebration and free concerts all year.
Things to do: When you’ve seen the sights you can leave the “madding crowds” behind and return to the peace of Montemiliano for relaxing walks strolling along the numerous pathways which start from our olive grove. Or you can simply relax in our swimming pool (14x6m in a very panoramic position) and enjoy the warm colours of the surrounding countryside. And If you still need more relaxation, thermal baths and a beauty farm are within just a 1/2 hour drive.
A Table tennis table and table football are available for those who want to take up the challenge…until sunset and an old wood burning oven, waiting only that we lit it for cooking pizzas, roasts, cakes and everything that you could wish to then savour under the attractive pergola with its wonderful views.
