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 views are breathtaking and the pool was large, clean and a very welcome break from the lovely hot sun we had all week! The small nearby towns had some lovely little restaurants and bars and the locals were friendly. The house was beautiful and had everything we could possible need during our stay and it was also lovely and cool at night despite the hot weather The owner arabella couldn't have done enough to help us and we will certainly be booking to stay here again. If you are seeking a peaceful and private location for some time in the sun then we couldn't recommend this beautiful place highly enough!

Luca, his family and staff were all extremely hospitable and welcoming. A simple but comfortable and well furnished apartment set in the most tranquil and peaceful surroundings on a hilltop with lovely views and cooling breezes. A car is essential but within easy reach can be found fascinating hilltop towns, thermal spas, archaeological sites, beaches excellent restaurants and much more if you can tear yourself away from the swimming pool. We had it all to ourselves. A perfect place for a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thank you Luca
