This is a wonderful villa for 10, all on the upper floor of an ancient farming building, set on a Tuscan farming estate. A fine example of a traditional "Casa Colonica" with open arched balcony, an external covered staircase leads to a furnished loggia facing west which enjoys spectacular sunsets and peaceful views of the woodlands. There is also a partly covered terrace to the rear, which faces east overlooking the surrounding countryside, the skyline of Siena and the Chianti hills in the distance, where you can enjoy the sun, dine under the pergola or barbecue....
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.
The first floor apartment is reached from a stairway to a generous loggia furnished for outdoor meals. A door from the loggia leads directly into a large open plan kitchen with its original hearth, central island and a dining counter where those not at work in the kitchen can perch and help with preparations and cheer the chef on. The open plan extends to the dining area with a table for 10 and a living room with sofa room for everyone. A corridor off the living area leads to five spacious bedrooms, two doubles and 3 twin/doubles, as well as 2 shower rooms and 2 bathrooms, all on the upper floor. In addition to the loggia, the house has its own, furnished private garden area at the rear, partly shaded by a vine covered pergola.
