Villas with Pools Family Villas Pets Welcome Shared Pool

Stopping midway up the hill to the center of the large farming estate has some advantages and Ropoli Sotto enjoys them all. It has sweeping uninterrupted views of the valley and the hills that surround it, is has greater quiet than that found in the Estate's central piazza, and it has an olive grove in its back garden and a pizza oven at hand. Just the right size for a family, who will be delight to know that the Family Pool is just a short walk up the drive.

...

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.

Accommodation

On the opposite side of the road from Casa Damiano this spacious apartment is on two floors of Casa Ropoli, a house built into the hillside along the drive up to Montestigliano. A door on the drive leads directly into a roomy living room with a dining table for six. Behind the curtain near the dining table are bars the give a glimpse of the entrance to the cellar where wine and foodstuffs were kept cool. A stairway from the living room leads up first to an eat-in kitchen and then further to the sleeping accommodations on the top floor. There are two twin bedroom and a double bedroom and the choice of a bathroom and a shower room. A back door from the kitchen leads to a semi-covered, paved patio with a pizza oven and private garden. This house may use the covered parking area below Casa Damiano across the drive.

Nice little touches:

  • Casa Ropoli enjoys uninterrupted views and, buffered by an olive grove, has greater quiet than that found in the Estate's central piazza.
  • Family reunions find taking Ropoli Sotto and Sopra a great arrangement.
  • The two swimming pools mean there is one that is kept quiet for reading and relaxing while the second one - further away from the houses - is for fun and frolics.
  • The estate organises Pizza evenings and other communal activities which are held in the main estate square.

Good to know:

  • Pets are welcome, but only in Mid and Low seasons and never allowed around the swimming pools
  • Wireless internet available in all apartments, estate office, courtyard, furnished gardens and near swimming pools.

Local area

Some of the farmhouses and agricultural buildings on the vast Montestigliano estate have been very carefully converted into pleasing, comfortable houses and apartments. Guests on the estate share two swimming pools, one reserved for those who want peace and quiet, the other, further from the houses, for allowing free rein to summer holiday fun. Guests at all the properties may wander at will all over the estate. Part of the lands front the River Merse, which has excellent swimming and is protected for bathers by the Sienese authorities. The tiny village of Torri, with its famous monastery and striped cloisters is two minutes away by car, while there are pizzerie and restaurants within a few minutes' drive. A very important extra here is provided by the charming owners who will unobtrusively keep out of your way or happily go out of their way to help you, providing endless extra services if you require them, from sending faxes, arranging balloon trips, providing touring information, to translating at the doctor's.

During the summer concerts and exhibitions are often organised in the ancient granary, an extraordinary lofty space (14 X 28 m.) spanned by great arches laced with tie bars. This barn is also very suitable as studio space for art courses or conferences, and the rooms below, next to the estate offices, include a games room with billiards, TV, ping pong, a dining room, a catering kitchen and a small gift shop. The little restaurant provides delightful suppers twice a week.
