We stayed at this location on our honeymoon for 5 nights in the Abate room and it was amazing! Matteo's hospitality was great- he provided us with a basket breakfast the first day, a wine tasting during our stay, and helped select and make reservations for dinner for us. The estate is very remote in the countryside with an approximately 20 minute drive into downtown Montalcino. You couldn't quite see the view of the rolling hills of Tuscany from the common areas but the views from our room were spectacular!
We couldn’t be happier with our stay. Matteo was so helpful with every request we had. He arranged for our cooking lesson in our apt that was amazing. The pool was very nice after a warm day out and about. We even saw a whole bunch of wild boars and a jack rabbit on the property. The wine they produce is amazing as well. Don’t hesitate to book your stay!
We loved our villa, the property, our host and the region. The property was amazing. Wine, olives, lavender and lots of property. Located about 10-15 kilometers from Montalcino-our go-go city-, the area is beautiful. Our villa faced west with large windows that opened onto an amazing view which, once a day, included sunset. WOW! While this is a very old, former monastery, our villa had updated bathroom and kitchen and was well stocked. It was comfortable, nicely designed and we were glad to spend time "at home." Bed was comfortable. We hope to go back.
This was a great location to tour from. Many wineries to visit, including this property. It's easy to access nearby sites and cities like Siena, Montalcino and Pienza. Our host, Matteo, was excellent. He was helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the history. He asked what we were interested in and gave us list of things to do, showed us how to get there on maps. We loved Montalcino, Sant'Antimo, Castiglione D'Orcia, and Bagno Vignoni all places, Matteo recommended. He really made the trip special with his attention to our needs. He was helpful but not overly. For us, this was a perfect way to see Tuscany.
Matteo was a great host. Our stay was very enjoyable. The setting is as beautiful as all the pics! The cellar was terrific to see and the wine - even better!!
A perfect place to recover from the excitement and craziness of the big cities amidst stunning scenery, food and wine. Matteo went out of his way to make sure we had a wonderful experience? which we really appreciated. We will be back, thanks Matteo. Ps his Brunello is awesome.
