(ex: Florence, Positano)
A: I stayed at the villa for 7 days in June 2004. The villa definitely has great views and distant ground, it is essentially on a knoll that looks out over the surrounding valley. I would say it does not, however, have high mountains, but one persons high mountains may not be anothers. There are mountains surrounding the valley, but theyare not "alp" type mountains, as that is not the terrain of the Tuscan area. I am an engineer, and not an artist, but I would conclude with the statement that I cannot imagine that the views over to the town of Monteriggioni out the kitchen area and the overlook area next to the villa would not be very stimulating to an artist. Additionally, the owners are very gracious and genuine down to earth people, who have a lot of pride about what they have there and rightly so. I would personally return to the same villa when I return to Tuscany.
A: Villa Monteriggioni has specatucular views of the town of Monteriggioni, gorgeous vistas of the surrounding hillsides and overall fantastic surroundings. If I were an artist - this should not be missed.
