MONTALTO CASTLE - 1 Bedroom Villa

House - Entire home/apt · Castelnuovo Berardenga, Tuscany 53019, Italy

The Space

Montalto Castle has a rich past dating back over one thousand years. Much of the castle is from medieval times, with extensive restorations performed in the 16th century and again in the 19th century.

It has long been family owned, first by the Berardenga family, then by the Palmieri, and finally by ourselves, Giovanni and Diana Coda-Nunziante, who acquired it from cousins in 1970.
We have been offering the houses of the little hamlet as vacation villa rentals since 1985.

There are three 1-bedroom villas for rent, each suitable for 1 or 2 people:

'San Martino' is a little tower, while 'Scuola' and 'Voliera' are small stone cottages. All are perfect for honeymooners, singles, and couples who cherish their privacy. Each has a sitting/dining room with kitchenette, bedroom with a queen-size bed, and full bathroom.

The estate has a swimming pool, tennis court, bocce ball court, laundry facilities and private garden areas. Enjoy the independence of a self-catering villa with all the advantages of a concierge's assistance.

The area of Tuscany around Montalto Castle is beautiful and peaceful but also very rich in history, art, good food and good wine. With its rich past dating back over one thousand years, the castle provides a truly unique setting for a vacation in Tuscany.

There are three 1-bedroom villas for rent, each suitable for 1 or 2 people:
> San Martino
> La Scuola
> La Voliera

San Martino is a small tower over the gate to the main castle courtyard -- the perfect nest for honeymooners. It has a sitting room with fireplace and mini-kitchenette and, upstairs, a bedroom with queen-size bed and a bathroom with stall shower.
La Scuola was the old school house of the village. All children, regardless of age, studied together in these two rooms. The cottage is just outside the gate, close to the swimming pool. The rear terrace is nestled in the trees and provides a quiet area for reading, dining or relaxing.
La Voliera is our easiest accessed cottage, as it is right off the road and has no steps throughout. It is just outside the walls of the castle, and has a small fenced garden for outdoor eating or relaxing.

If you get tired of simply relaxing in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, there are many activities you can do right here at Montalto. Included in every villa rental:
•Swimming pool
•Tennis court
•Bocce ball
•Ping pong
•Small playground
•Barbecue pit
•Maps of the many trails through fields and woods around the castle

Our swimming pool is 6x12 meters (20x40 ft) and has a deep end for diving. We also have a bocce court for sand bowling and a covered ping-pong table. You are welcome to play tennis on our court, which has a surface of synthetic grass and sand, and if you prefer asphalt or clay there are tennis clubs in Siena that accept temporary guests.

For health and wellness, we have miles of trails and dirt roads for walking and jogging, on and around our 700-acre estate, and a small work-out bench with weights for exercising.

Right on the border of the Montalto estate is an excellent horse-back riding school and equestrian center, where lessons in English mount and jumping are available, and interesting guided tours on horse-back through the countryside are organized daily. They also have a summer camp for children in June.

Once a week we invite our guests for tea in the great hall. This gives you the opportunity to see the frescoed hall of arms, hear about the history of Montalto, and meet other guests that are staying with us.

We can also arrange for cooking lessons or italian language lessons upon request; contact us a few days ahead of time to book these.

Montalto castle is the ideal home base for interspersing quiet days of rest and relaxation with interesting local excursions, because there is so much within reach. This is a great way to get to know a country in depth, and far more relaxing than an exhausting whirlwind tour of Italy.

Whether you are interested in art and culture or want to sample the local food and world-famous Chianti and Brunello wine, or to relax and rejuvenate with a day at a spa, you will find it all in the area surrounding the castle.
