A spacious apartment near the heart of the Estate
- Sleeps 6

Casa Marta is an independent upper floor apartment with tall, airy rooms with Victorian proportions. It is approached from an open fronted courtyard and has a pleasant, walled, furnished garden at the rear with beautiful views of the estate. Sitting as it does at the heart of the estate, it is easy for guests to join in activities such as cooking classes or olive oil tastings held in the Granary, yet being on the top floor with views of the back woodlands, it is easy to preserve the sense of being away from it all....
Situated in exceptionally picturesque countryside, Montestigliano has all the characteristics of the classic Tuscan Great Estate: avenues of cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, woodlands and neat, cultivated fields. The estate buildings form a small complex with some farmhouses, the villa and agricultural buildings in a beautiful position on top of a hill, with extensive views of the surrounding countryside. Wide, sandy floored cypress lined avenues traverse the forested hills of the estate, often terminating in belvederes at the most impressive viewpoints. Through the tangled woodlands, across the cultivated plain below, one can see Siena and the Chianti hills in the distance, and there is a rare abundance of wild flowers and animals.
Entrance to Casa Marta is through a door in the corner of the open-fronted courtyard at the heart of the estate. A staircase leads past the ground floor laundry and up to a short corridor off of which are two bedrooms, a twin and a double, with lovely woodland views as well as a bathroom and a shower room. A further corridor leads past a roomy eat-in kitchen with generous cupboards and counter space, past a double bedroom and finishes in a large living room with sofas, a dining table for 6, and a wood-burning stove, much appreciated by early Spring or late Autumn guests. In similar proportions to this spacious apartment, guests have a wide secluded garden and furnished pergola for outdoor meals with a view.
