Tuscany at its best

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in the serenity of the Tuscan hills. Property owners are attentive to every detail. We would definitely return to this home over and over. We saw some of the wine harvest, cooked our own meals, and enjoyed the estate wines. Lovely experience.

Tage in einer unversehrten Landschaft

  • 5 of 5

Das ebenso grosszügige wie gemütliche Landhaus Villa Montelisi steht inmitten einer unversehrten toskanischen Landschaft mit Rebbergen, Olivenhainen und Ackerland. Am Horizont ist die Silhouette von Siena erkennbar. Wir haben im ausladenden Garten mehr in die Weite gestaunt als gelesen. Den Apéro tranken wir in den Korbstühlen der Veranda, und danach kochten und assen wir in der grossen, gemütlichen Wohnküche. Die individuellen Schlaf- und Badezimmer gaben allen drei Parteien auch einen privaten Rückzugsraum. Das Wohnzimmer mit Musikanlage haben wir kaum gebraucht. Beim Vino della casa (sehr gut) blieben wir meistens in der Küche hocken und redeten über Siena, Montalcino, Colle Val d'Elsa und, und... Es war schön.

Tuscan paradise that exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 adults and 1 child and had an amazing week at Villa Montelisi. We have lots of experience with holiday rentals and this one had the rare characteristic of being even better than the beautiful pictures. You really could not ask for a more perfect base for a week in Tuscany; there is so much space (each bedroom with its own bathroom, two huge living areas, outdoor and indoor seating), the decor is Tuscan but very tasteful, and the view from the outdoor seating area is just incredible. The hosts, Paolo and Tullio, were lovely; they were there to greet us when we arrived and give us a tour of the property, and available the couple of times we called. The location was also great, just a few km's out of Siena, so a good base for discovering the region. We can certainly recommend it!

Wow doesn't do justice

  • 5 of 5

Stunning accommodation, divine countryside views and wonderful owners. We had one the best holidays in a long time. The house is beautifully Tuscan authentic, full of charm and as for the views - nothing short of a painting. Location is perfect for Siena, Chianti and easy reach of other charming towns like Montepulciano. In fact the photos cannot represent the true sense of what the house and location on the vineyard has to offer. The family are delightful and made us feel espeically welcome. Getting to know the history of the family and vineyard/olive groves made the location all the more intoxicating. It is impossible to return home without wondering when to go back!

Heaven in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay was had at Villa Montelisi!

First, recognize while the descriptions and pictures are beautiful and inspiring, upon arrival the property itself will exceed your expectations. As we proceeded to book the property, from on the onset, our communications with Anna were both timely and clear.

While the property itself can be a challenge to find for the first time Tuscany visitor, the actual journey up the "white road" is itself so beautiful it just makes it the hunt all the worth while. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by owners Tullio and Paola, who make you feel like family the minute you arrived.

The property, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, is breathtaking. Paola gave a thorough tour of the villa while Tullio described the surroundings to us in detail. A beautiful platter of cheeses, meats and olives welcomed the weary travelers.

The villa itself is beautifully appointed, and while the July heat was bearing down on us, the cool breezes that flowed into the rooms and onto our favorite place, the Loggio, were cooling and refreshing. The estate wines are available in the villa for purchase as very reasonable prices.

The pool is about a 10-15 minute walk and we found it to be clean, and the surrounding were equally beautiful. The Simply Market in Siena was a favorite spot for us (about a 15 minute drive) with all the food options you would need for cooking or lunching. The cheese selection was incredibly good.

The views of Sienna are spectacular, particular as you sit for morning coffee or wine in the evening. Our 3 teenagers went out on sunset hikes each evening and were greeting with deer and the surrounding beauty each time. If Tuscany is in your travel plans, you will do well to consider Villa Montelisi!
