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.

Well, we found that our expectations were not even close to what we really received from our stay in Bellaria. We brought love, litterally, my wife and I with our newborn baby girl Emma Celeste and we received in exchange far much more. Either form the owners, a splendid couple, and from the house itself that shows in every single detail love and attachment to the site and the spirit of it. Just one word: thank you...

We (family of 4) stayed for two weeks this summer holiday and were very glad we did. Pool was maintained almost daily and the grounds kept neat and tidy by paolo and his brother Stephano. The views are stunning and the surrounding farms and olive groves typically Tuscan. It was very hot whilst we were there, 35 degrees most days with little breeze so the pool was a lifesaver. Cooler conditions can be found up the local mountain (mt. Amiata ) where more adventurous activity can be sought. The local town of Castel del piano has everything you need except decent bug spray. Horseflies are a pest in Tuscany in the summer and we found deet spray effective to keep them off. Paolo and Stephano were friendly and helpful and there is a wonderful guide in the apartment with itineraries to help your the area. The people in the towns were quite frankly the most pleasant and hospitable people you will ever come across. You will however need a car to get the most out of the area and a sat nav as the property is not easy to find but paolo will send you coordinates which brought us to the door. We hope to return soon

The property is is well furnished exceptionally clean and very well maintained. There are some fabulous restaurants within a few miles drive from the house and also in Castel del Piano which can be reached by foot from a pathway through the vineyards behind the lake. It is only a few minutes drive by car and there are lots of restaurants in the main street and square and some interesting shops. The bakery supplies fresh bread, rolls and pasta The location is peacefull and relaxing but with lots of interesting historic hillside villages and towns to visit with a half hours journey.
