Our VILLA CASA DI MONTE is a country-villa that dates back to the beginning of the XIX Century and that has been recently restored preserving the original structure of the house. The whole villa consists of 2 units, but we only rent the VILLA all together to a single group at a time, as in fact as a single villa, with private swimming-pool and many other facilities at exclusive use of our guests.

Our VILLA sleeps 11/12 persons, being made of1 triple bedroom (1 king-size-bed plus 1 single-bed for a boy/girl – the single is not suitable for an adult) , 2 double-bedrooms (with 1 king-size-bed in each bedroom), 1 single-bedroom, 1 twin-bedroom, 1 bedroom with a queen-bed (a queen bed is a bed large 150 cm / 60 inches, so that can be used as a single- or as a double-bed). Please note also that in Italy a king-bed is a bed large 173 cm /68 inches. So, IN TOTAL, in the villa you have 3 king-beds, 1 queen-bed, 4 single-beds. In the villa you also have 2 living-rooms with fireplaces, 2 kitchens fully equipped (also with dish-washer, oven, fridge-freezer), 3 bathrooms (each one with basin, bidet, WC, shower) and 1 toilet (with basin, bidet, WC). In each room there is a fan to refresh your days on Summer. At guests’ disposal there is also a laundry-room with washing-machine which use is for free. The villa has also a large roofed loggia or veranda equipped with tables and chairs in order to eat or relax open-air. For guests that like to stay connected also on holidays, in the VILLA you have a free Wi-Fi connection.

Our guests may also enjoy in full privacy our large swimming-pool (irregularly shaped, about 13×6 metres and from 1,5 to 2 metres deep) and the barbecue-area in the park surrounding the Villa.

For families with children, we can provide 2 baby-beds and 2 baby-high-chairs, all for free. Children are very welcome, and please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have special requests for babies, like, for example, bottle warmers, plastic bathtub for babies, some toys, changing table for babies OR ANY OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED (on request, we may provide them for free).

On guests’ request, we will be glad to organize breakfasts, Tuscan dinners or buffets, or to make wine-tastings or olive-oil-tastings.

About Andrea Simoncini

From the Twenties of the XX century, my family is producing Chianti wines and Extra-Virgin Olive-Oil in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Italy.

Today we work 80 hectares of land, of which 35,5 dedicated to vineyards for the production of red and white IGT wines and Chianti, Chianti Classico and Chianti Montespertoli DOCG wines. Instead, 7 hectares are occupied by olive-trees for the production of extra virgin olive oil.

In the years, our wines and olive-oils have received many prizes all around the world. One of the most recent has been the “2 Glasses” prize recognized to three of our wines (“Cadmo”, “Laureo” and “Robbia”) by the famous “Gambero Rosso 2015 – Vini d’Italia” Wine Guide.

Recently, two of our wines, called “Biancospino” and “Robbia” have been served during a ceremony in Tokyo (at Armani Restaurant in the Ginza Tower) in honor of the President of the Italian Republic, Mr. Giorgio Napolitano.

Andrea Simoncini purchased this house in 1920

Why Andrea Simoncini chose Montespertoli

Our story dates back to Angelo Oreste Simoncini, born in Montespertoli (Florence area) in 1872, that began his activities as a farmer at the end of the 19th century as a producer of straw for making hats. With the help of sixty seasonal workers, he turned the straw into braids for the manufacture of the “Florence hat” known throughout the world.

In addition to a small piece of land he owned, he originally rented plots for the “sowing of straw”. On 5th July 1912 he bought the buildings at “Casa di Monte”, Montespertoli, with about 10 hectares of land that are the core of the estate today. The main body is a watch-tower from year 1000, that was enlarged between 1300 and 1700 and used as rural housing. In 1924 Angelo Oreste ceased the production of straw for hats because of the appearance on the marketplace of competing products from Asia. The farm replaced the cereal crops with new vineyards and olive groves. In the same year he bought additional land close to the original body. In 1973, the farm was inherited by the current owners who became direct producers.

What makes this house unique

For families with children, we can provide 2 baby-beds and 2 baby-high-chairs, all for free. Children are very welcome, and please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have special requests for babies, like, for example, bottle warmers, plastic bathtub for babies, some toys, changing table for babies OR ANY OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED (on request, we may provide them for free).

On guests’ request, we will be glad to organize breakfasts, Tuscan dinners or buffets, or to make wine-tastings or olive-oil-tastings. On your request, we will also be glad to organize a free visit to our Wine Farm to discover how wine or extra-virgin olive-oil are made: we will tour you around and explain everything, with visits to our cellars too!

Our guests may also enjoy in full privacy (100% ONLY FOR OUR GUESTS!!) our large swimming-pool (irregularly shaped, about 13×6 metres and from 1,5 to 2 metres deep) and the barbecue-area in the park surrounding the Villa.

Terrific family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Casa di Monte on August 2015 for a week. We were a diverse group of 11 people with various requirements (from a 3 year old kid to a disabled person in a wheelchair). The villa was very accommodating, the facilities were terrific and Jessica (the host) was there to assist us and answer all our questions in an extremely friendly and helpful way. Our Tuscany vacation was spectacular, and we definitely owe much of it to this pick.

  • 4 of 5

"Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à la Villa Casa di Monte. Jessica a été particulièrement aimable et disponible.

Quelques points négatifs cependant, sur l'équipement de la cuisine et le manque de communication entre les 2 appartements. Quelques jeux tel que ping pong etc et la clim aurait été un plus.

Point positifs : situation géographique, belle piscine , mais à nettoyer plus souvent.

Des champs d'oliviers à perte de vue, la tranquilité, l'espace extérieur."
