About The Experience
Situated in a prominent position overlooking the Val d’Orcia, this villa for rent in Tuscany offers incredible views and is in a peaceful and natural setting. It’s within walking distance of Monticchiello, which is home to many shops and restaurants as well as a castle. You’ll be able to enjoy the countryside views during your day trips through Tuscany or with your friends and family by the private pool at this vacation rental.
Location Description

The property is located about a ten-minute walk away from Monticchiello where you'll find shops, restaurants, and a market. Monticchiello still has its original city walls, towers, and castle. The main site is the 13th century gothic church, which contains a beautiful altarpiece. Each summer, the locals put on plays that they themselves write and contain three acts. The first act takes place in the past, the second act takes place in the present, and the third act takes place in the future. Great for a day trip is Pienza, a place with markets, restaurants, shops, banks, a post office and pharmacy. The main sites include the Palazzo Piccolomini, the Duomo, and the Palazzo Borgia although just taking a walk to enjoy the views is worth a trip all by itself. For other day trips, Montepulciano, home to wonderful wines, is nearby as is Chianciano Terme, full of fabulous spas.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Above expectations. Sometimes it is difficult to know if a property that is rented over the internet will live up to the pictures. Villa Montichiello EXCEEDED the pictures in reality. Marvelous.
Enjoyed Most:
Spaciousness of the home. Beauty of the inside and outside of the property. Convenience to Montichiello. Graciousness of Tamara and her son Riccardo.
Surrounding Area:
The views were beautiful from every window. The location was perfect for visiting the various Tuscan hill towns. The ability to walk into Montichiello for dinner or a gelato was one of the best advantages to the property. Perfect!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montichiello was a 10 minute walk. A small grocery store was within a 5 minute walk. Pienza was a 10 minute car ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
La Porta, at the entrance to Montichiello, was delicious with spectacular views from the terrace. Daria made us feel like family.
Directions:
The directions could be modified based on whether the traveler is coming from Florence (north) or Rome (south). Finding Montichiello by GPS was not difficult, but the directions to the villa from that point were confusing. We called Riccardo and he met us and led us to the property.
Check In Out:
Tamara and Riccardo speak very limited English. We were alright since our daughter speaks limited Italian. Had she not been there, it would have been a challenge. However, Riccardo and Tamara were very sweet and did everything they could to make us feel welcome.

I road with friends who used a GPS.

Overall:
The property was gorgeous. It's very well landscaped and maintained. The caretaker was very gracious and was great about managing our needs while ensuring we enjoyed privacy during our stay.
Enjoyed Most:
Breakfasts and evening wine while enjoying the view sitting by the pool. Walks to town for supplies and dinner drives to Pienza and Montepulciano.
Surrounding Area:
The villa was extremely well-located for day trips to many hill towns, as well as to Siena and Florence. The rolling hills of the Val d'Orcia were stunning.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monticchiello was within walking distance and there was a small bakery and market that provided for most of our daily food requirements.
Tips or Restaurants:
Everything you need is nearby. Recommend local olive oil that can be bought in Monticchiello Every restaurant in Monticchiello was excellent two of them have amazing views. The market in Pienza is small and hard to find, but there is one booth that sells fresh pasta and fish that makes it worth the trip. There is also a wonderful small restaurant in Pienza called Antonio and Gabriella's. The husband and wife make everything while you wait and every meal ends with a courtesy glass of limoncello! Eat the gelato every chance you get. Make sure to do your day trips either in the morning before 1: 00 PM or in the late afternoons after 3:30 PM. Stores are closed for the period in between and you won't get a good feel for the towns if you go during this time.
Directions:
The villa is located less than a mile from the Monticchiello cross road. We turned off too early and went back and forth for quite sometime before calling the caretaker for help.
