Right in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, perched above the Val d’Elsa, is the town of Montaione, Tuscany. Surrounded by the famously picturesque countryside of Tuscany, shrouded in lush, Chianti vineyards and extended woodland, Montaione has a fantastically rural atmosphere, with every facility you need to really enjoy your well deserved break in the sun.

Things to do on holiday in Montaione, Tuscany

The countryside surrounding Montaione is covered in Chianti vineyards, providing the area with a surplus of fantastic sweet wines. There are plenty of opportunities for vineyard tours from a Montaione property, and no experience in wine tasting is required in order to enjoy a great afternoon sampling the best the region can produce. The bi-annual wine festivals held in the historical centre of Montaione are fantastic times to be staying in Montaione accommodation, whether you are a wine connoisseur or an interested wine fan!

There are several archaeological sites in and around Montaione which make for fascinating viewing. There are a handful of Etruscan sites in and around the town, but it is the Roman ruins at Muraccio which really capture the imagination. The Church of San Biagio holds secrets too. The crypt, 500 metres outside the village is of Paleo-Christian origins. The Civic Museum is a fantastic way to discover much about the town, as it displays many of the finest archaeological finds, historical artefacts and even pre-historic fossils, including that of a whale found in the Castelfalfi.

Walking and hiking in the Montaione countryside is an absolute treat. The landscape is simply stunning, offering breath-taking views in every direction. There are a huge number of walks to enjoy, many extending into the thick forests, sheltering you from the heat of the day. There is no need to ever leave the town though.

Beautifuly located on a hillside overlooking the Tuscan region with mountain range in the background. The grounds were impeccably kept with flower beds and plants. We enjoyed the private pool and the various outside eating spots. Close to Sienna, Florence and San Gimignano. Antonietta was a wonderful host and took care of all our needs. We hope to return one day.

Loredana and Massimo were wonderful hosts and were very welcoming. It was very hot during our 2 weeks so the large pool was a godsend.The typical Tuscan house was large and cool. The village was a short walk across the fields with a nice little bar and pizzeria. A 10 to 15min drive to the nearest supermarket at Montaione was convenient. We had excursions to Florence, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Castelfiorentino (great market) all with their differing attractions. Many days were spent either at the villa or close to it, exploring the local area. The wildlife was very interesting, especially when coming back at night! If you've never come accross glow worms, wild boar, little owls, deer and porcupines in your back garden, this is the place for you. This was our third visit to Tuscany - this villa was the best of them, and was very reasonably priced compared to many others. Highly recommended! Williams Family, Wales
