About the property

Former residence surrounded by olive trees with lovely views over the Crete and Siena

Villa Montelisi belongs to Tenuta Larnianone (140 hectares). It produces its own wine and extra virgin olive oil and the same family since 1939.

VILLA Montelisi is surrounded by olive groves. The house is characterized by large common areas and cozy rooms and can accommodate 8 adults and 2 children under 12 years. The interior has been taken care of by the owners with love, care and respect for the traditional rural Tuscan furniture.

From Montelisi it enjoys lovely views of the surrounding hills, Mount Amiata and Siena. In the evenings the lounge on the porch is great place to spend unforgettable moments in silence and peace of the country.

The Montelisi guests have access to a magnificent shared swimming pool (7x14 meters, depth 120/140 cm). The pool is about 800 meters from the villa and can be reached by a nice walk.

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.

Una vacanza meravigliosa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 just enjoyed a week of pure relaxation at Villa Montelisi. We were 7 adults and 2 children (twins aged 11). From the moment we arrived Paola and Tullio made us feel welcome. As soon as we entered the villa we were greeted with warmth and a sense of being home. It had everything we ever needed. The kitchen was well equipped, the rooms were spacious and the grounds very well maintained. The views of Siena were outstanding. At our request Paola arranged a chef come in one night to prepare us a Tuscan feast and it didn't disappoint. We would highly recommend the chef, her food was delicious and she was very engaging. Tullio happens to make good wine which we enjoyed much of with dinner and during our entire stay! Try also his beer, it was refreshing and tasty! And Paola treated us to a homemade tart upon our arrival which was delicious.

The Villa location was central to a lot of the places we wanted to visit with everywhere being within an hour or so. We would recommend having your own transportation for the purpose of visiting the smaller villages. Having access to a pool after a long day of sightseeing was also a bonus. It was a 10 min walk or a couple of minutes drive from the villa. There is a supermarket in the nearby village about 15 min drive which had everything we needed. We would highly recommend a visit at Tenuta Larnianone. It was magical!

Tuscany at its best! Idyllic hilltop villa, sweeping views, our own private paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 which included 3 generations - grandparents, parents and children ages 12 and 16 - all adored our stay at Montelisi. The location was perfect in that it was very close to Siena, yet was in the middle of the estate’s beautiful vineyards and olive groves. Tullio greeted us warmly and was very responsive to any questions we had during our visit. The villa is inviting, warm and comfortable and we felt felt more like we were guests in his and Paola’s home rather than staying in an impersonal rental property. Relaxing on the covered terrace with its magnificent view of Siena’s lights and the cathedral towers in the distance was magical. Our children enjoyed the short walk to the pool almost as much as the pool itself. Montelisi was a great base for us to visit Florence, Montepulciano, San Gimignano,

and Monteriggioni and then come “home” to our villa in the country. Nearby we had a fun cooking class at Le Pietre Vive and a great dinner at their restaurant another evening. We can not recommend this villa highly enough - we hated to leave and would love to return!!

Excellent in every way!!! 10 stars!

  • 5 of 5

Tullio and Pauloa are so kind and helpful! The property is in immaculate shape, the pictures online are perfect, no surprises. The views from the villa are so beautiful, it is Tuscany at it's best! We had 8 people and it was very comfortable. Big eat in kitchen, several family rooms and an unbelievable outdoor area to soak up Tuscany with Siena in the background. A perfect week!. I highly recommend this property and will go back.

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!
