Make a self catering villa in Montalcino, Tuscany your home away from home

The small town of Montalcino makes a delightful centre from which to explore this beautiful region of Tuscany. Known for its olive oil, honey and red wine called ‘Brunello di Montalcino’, the town is surrounded by vineyards. The area is also famed for its cuisine, served at small local trattorias or in gourmet restaurants on the vineyard estates. The great abbey of Monte Olivetto Maggiore is surrounded by the three hill towns of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza which are all delightful to explore. Siena and Florence are also within easy reach by car or train from your self catering villa.

Famous for its red wines as long ago as the 15th century, the local Brunello wine must be aged for at least 5 years in oak caskets before being sold.

The small market town of Buonconvento is just a short distance from your self catering villa and provides good shops, restaurants and a weekly market on Saturdays. Visit the art gallery near the Town Hall and explore the ancient streets of this Medieval walled town.

                                                              A fantastic villa to stay for a week with loads of space inside and a huge back yard as well. Also only 10 min walk to town. Recommend highly.

                                                              Overall: We had a wonderful time. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The children had great fun running about the large yard. Enjoyed Most: Proximity to town. And, its beauty. Enjoyed Least: Kitchen was small, and removed from the living areas. Surrounding Area: We loved walking to town, shopping and eating out. We traveled to Siena, and several other small towns in the area. Nearby Events or Locales: Montalcino was a short walk. Tips or Restaurants: We really did not have spectacular meals. We often ate supper at the villa, as we had small children with early bedtimes and many of the restaurants were closed until 700 or 730. Grifa's pizza was probably our best meal out. Directions: We did use GPS. Check In Out: Monica, who did our check-in and check-out was very accommodating. We were later than anticipated arriving (serious navigation problems leaving Florence) and then we had a 7:30 am flight out of Florence on our departure day, so she came to check us out at 4:30 in the morning, with great grace.

                                                              Overall: My visit to Italy was spectacular in part due to Villa Seggiano. The location and view were beautiful and the villa impeccably decorated. We had everything we needed and the hosts were gracious and accommodating. There was plenty to see and do in the area with Montalcino, Siena and Montalpulcino all within reasonable driving distances. Any question we had was quickly answered and the home had wireless connection which was a big help with making day plans. Our hosts, Laura and Roberto, also prepared a magnificent dinner for us one evening which was the highlight of the trip! Laura prepared a tart for us one day which was waiting upon our return from a day out and about-so thoughtful! I planned our trip online and Villa Seggiano was exactly as described however, the pictures did not do it justice. I would highly recommend the villa. It was worth every penny and then some. Enjoyed Most: It's hard to define what we liked most about the property but the living space and hosts made our time together incredibly memorable. Surrounding Area: Many towns were within an easy distance by car. Nearby Events or Locales: The nearest town was Seggiano. Seggiano was roughly 5 kilometers by car and though an easy distance to walk to, the roads were tough to safely navigate on foot. Directions: We met the owners of the villa and followed them to the property.
