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.

The accommodation itself is airy, with spectacular views over the rolling hillside. Having visited Tuscany for many years, this particular location is excellent for both relaxation, or accessing many of the cultural and culinary highlights for which the region is renowned.
