My husband and I have just spent 9 nights at Il Monte. Our cottage was clean, comfortable and very charming with an equipped kitchen (4-burner cooktop/no oven) and modern bathroom. The scenery surrounding the property is simply breathtaking.
Our hosts were friendly but respected privacy and they had a lovely friendly dog – we miss Theo!! Francesca speaks English fluently and Adriana speaks Italian and some French. I understand that Adriana runs a restaurant on the property during peak season.
There is a large unheated swimming pool and property is not air conditioned although that was not an issue whatsoever for us. There are several choices of accommodations - 1, 2 3 bedroom all of which are lovely and comfortable.
The setting is remote, quiet and secluded ~ 3 hours drive from Rome airport. Best to rent an SUV not smallest vehicle for rough terrain. Probably not best for guests with physical challenges because terrain is quite steep.
Barns and horses very well kept and we enjoyed rides immensely. Francesca is a very professional and patient instructor.
It is a short drive to Monte Santa Maria Tiburina with a couple of restaurants or a bit further to Citte di Castello for many to choose from.
You can buy groceries at Conad along the way – make sure to buy paper towel, tissues and toilet tissue as well as all food/drink that you need as it is a fairly long (+20 min) drive to buy anything. There is a small “tuck shop” at Oscarias Restaurant in Monte Santa Maria Tiburina.
We loved our visit and hope to return again soon. We never wanted to leave!
Property was clean, well equipped, excellent hot shower, good WIFI surrounded by farming, olive groves, vineyards and tobacco fields. Quiet, beautiful country views, in a good location to supermarkets in Sansepolcro, managed by Daniel who was helpful, obliging with very good English.
