Villa Luisa 261

Rosia, Siena, Tuscany

A large villa whose loggia is perfect for dining and sunsets.

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.

Nice little touches

  • Montestigliano is a beautiful spot and this house is a great choice for a family holiday. There is help with cooking and meals and the children always meet new friends.
  • 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.

Accommodation

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.

Around Villa Luisa

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.
