In the middle of our trip touring Italy, we decided to unwind at this place, before we move on to touring Spain.
I found this place through Airbnb, however, after booking it, I realized they had their own website.
The grounds are beautiful. Well groomed, and an amazing view. The property has a tiny little pool to cool off, but it wasn't heated. We didn't go in, but it was nice to have the option. Any water around is calming.
We stayed in the 2nd suite, and the entrance had a large cactus plant (overgrown aloe plant if you ask me). Note to the owners, it must be groomed - if you're not careful, you could walk into it after a night of drinking all that wine.
The town is extremely quiet - even this is an understatement. Montalcino is a romantic little village, great for baby making, or unwinding by the poolside before you continue your tour of Europe. The village is all uphill and downhill. Wear comfortable shoes to walk.
Andrea and Lisa Jane were amazing. Great service, informative, and are always happy to suggest and help.
To get here: easiest way is if you rent a car and have gps. We didn't. But, it was easy to get here by train. We took a train from Florence (Trenitalia) to Buonconvento station. There was a stop in Siena. Note, these are regional trains and aren't necessarily punctual as the other trains in Europe. Give yourself time to catch the connecting train. Once you get to Buonconvento, cross the street and take Bus #114 to Montalcino. Lisa Jane and Andrea will help out with the rest of the way.
