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.

Fantastic relaxing break

5 of 5
We arrived to a very warm welcome from Alberto and throughout our stay he was around to answer any queries. We had great days lazing by the pool, playing tennis and walking up the hill to Castel del Piano for dinner. Would recommend this place for anyone who wants to switch off and absorb the culture of a beautiful area of Tuscany.

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.
