About the villa
Resident staff, cook service, huge rooms and formal rose gardens all contribute to the sense of grandeur at this historic country house. And yet the villa exudes an irresistible air of welcome, an easy tempo of relaxation, and a comfortable combination of old world charm and contemporary facilities. Almost equidistant between Florence and Siena, Montefiori stands amid five acres of vineyards and olive groves, its gardens encompassing a bocce (petanque) ground, astroturf tennis court, and the swimming pool, backed by a bank of herbs and overlooked by a tree-shaded sitting area. Beside the house, a covered terrace is furnished for al fresco dining, looking out to tranquil views and leading into the effortlessly elegant sitting room, enchanting country style dining room, and ancient vaulted billiard room. Rich fabrics, four-posters and canopied headboards feature in the six first floor bedrooms, the master suite complete with dressing room and balcony. And the house is a stroll away from a local restaurant, 8km from shops and eateries in Greve, and 35km from the medieval streets of Siena.
The discreet owner occasionally uses a self-contained apartment with its own access and not visible from the villa.
The access road to the house is an unsurfaced, so careful driving is recommended.
Staff live in a separate house on the estate.
An English speaking CV representative will visit during your stay.
