Montelaterone, Tuscany, Italy - Where time stands still

Montelaterone is perhaps one of the most authentic of the many Twelfth Century medieval hilltop villages which ring the majestic massif of Monte Amiata, a mountain which was revered by the Etruscans who gave it its name.

This mountainous historic area is located in the least well know corner of Tuscany, away from the beaten track, and having the lowest population density. Yet despite its relative isolation it offers much more than lovely views. Within twenty minutes drive from Montelaterone the visitor can enjoy many interesting sites, including: the Carolingian Abbey Church of Sant’Antimo, where Sunday services and Vespers are in Gregorian chant; the Church at Santa Fiora, which features priceless della Robbia masterpieces; the Buddhist monastery at Aioule; the imposing castle of Arcidosso; the sculpture park of the artist Spoerli; the wildlife park at the foot of Monte Labbra.

A bit further afield the historic towns of Sienna, Orvieto, Radicofani and Pienza beckon the visitor.

But right in the village of Montelaterone there is an excellent example of a typical medieval town with its winding uphill alleys, arches and a breath-taking view of the Zancona valley.

Many restaurants featuring traditional Tuscan fare and local wines are within easy reach, and each village has musical and folk festivals in the summer.

A hiking and mountain-biking trail passes just by the house in the valley.

Die Unterkünfte liegen schattig inmitten eines Waldes, unsere war gut ausgestattet. Der große Pool (ca. 18-20 m lang) ist ein Traum! Sehr herzliche Inhaberfamilie und freundlicher Verwalter. Ein ruhiger und erholsamer Aufenthalt!

A true Tuscan experience with ample room for the 6 adults, all with separate bedrooms and connecting bathrooms. Have stayed in multiple villas throughout Italy. This is definitely one of our favorites and we will gladly return again.
