Luxury Country House in Tuscany - Italy
Walking in the footsteps of history, beside medieval stone towers silhouetted against the vivid blue skies yet coupled with the sleek modern design and elegance that is so uniquely ‘Italy’.
The dream of Tuscany can be turned into reality. The landscapes with rolling hills, luminous skies and golden earth will be more than an image on the internet: they will be the postcards of your life, that you’ll be able to admire every morning, when opening the windows.
Villa Montisi is a charming single storey house, taking its name from the view over the medieval town of Montisi, in the area of Crete Senesi. The villa is part of a fully restored hamlet in the beautiful setting of San Giovanni d’Asso.
The total area of the villa is 130 sq.m. arranged with a spacious living room leading onto a pergola. A brick archway to the left of the lounge takes you through to the open plan kitchen/diner.
From the lounge you can reach the bedrooms; the one on the left is a double bedroom and it has doors out to the garden. The bathroom with full size bathtub is adjacent to the bedroom.
On the right you can find the master bedroom with private bathroom with shower.
The third bedroom is up a couple of steps at the end of the corridor. This is a lovely bedroom, with en-suite bathroom with shower. Double wood and glass doors provide plenty of light and access to the garden.
The garden of 2.000 sq.m. is mainly lawn and has fabulous open views over the surrounding countryside towards the village of Montisi. The property enjoys a private 8x4m swimming pool, located a few steps away from the terrace at the back of the house.
The villa enjoys an independent access, in order to guarantee maximum privacy.
The privileged position, right below Siena, will let you reach in a short time some of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany, both in terms of art, culture and landscapes: Pienza, a UNESCO Heritage Site, is just 15 kms away, while Siena – the city of Palio – can be reached in 40 minutes by car only.

About the area
San Giovanni D’Asso, placed in the middle of magic Crete Senesi, epitomises the very essence of Tuscany, with its hilltop setting and slopes running down to valley of the Asso river below.
A delightful medieval village, clinging to the walls of its twelfth century castle, and offering traditional bars and small shops selling the excellent local produce, along with Italy’s only truffle museum.
There is a fine example of an ancient Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, whilst San Pietro in Villare, one of the most important churches in the area is surrounded by striking cypress trees.
