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.

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.

The villa Lavacchio is a beautiful property, the taste of the interiors is exquisite, and it is a comfortable and spacious house. Tiziana looked after us beautifully, and is a very good cook. The pool is a good size and was the perfect temperature. The views are amazing, and the woodland surrounding it gives it a great sense of space and tranquility. I would very much recommend it. The only negative feedback I would give to the owner is that in several of the bedrooms the air conditioning was not working properly, and in the month of July when we were there, it was so hot in the bedrooms that some of our group could not sleep well. If air conditioning is offered it should work! Apart from that, it is a great place to gather for a peaceful intimate holiday.
