A stone cottage with large shaded patio and expansive views

This house, opposite Casa Ropoli, is at the side of the main drive leading up to Montestigliano and accommodation is on one floor.

The interiors are well designed to host three people and the furnished, shaded patio below the house is especially generous and adds outdoor living and dining options. There is both covered parking and a private garden on the lower level.

The views from this house are beautiful, perhaps the best on the estate, and guests may reach the swimming pools and the rest of the Montestigliano estate by walking up delightful pathways through the olive groves.

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.

Nice little touches

  • 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

  • Though the estate road passes by the entrance to the property, the bedrooms and outdoor eating area face other directions and are not disturbed.
  • Pets are welcome, but only in Mid and Low seasons and never allowed around the swimming pools

Accommodation

Entrance to the house is from the front door, which faces the drive up to the center of the estate. To the right of the door is the large main room which combines a living area with a sofa facing a traditional Tuscan fireplace and a dining table for four. A low dividing wall separate the living area from a compact, well-planned kitchen. To the left of the entry there is a short corridor off of which are two bedrooms, a double and a single, and a shared bathroom. Of of the favorite living areas is actually outside the house, in the very spacious covered patio, ideal for dining al fresco and gathering to plan new excursions. or just enjoy the evening air. Guests at Damiano and Casa Ropoli share a laundry room with washing machine in a room below Casa Ropoli.

Around Damiano

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.
