An idyllic secluded retreat far from everyday buzz yet on Siena's doorstep and a short ride from Florence and the seafront. No real rush here. Private converted barn for up to 10 guests, with exclusive pool overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills.
Montechiaro Wine Estates is a historic stately home where you can still experience the old Chianti lifestyle as it once was, slow and calm just like 300 years ago. A private idyllic retreat for the discerning traveller who wants to leave it all behind and find peace. Here, a 10th generation family still patiently grows organic grapes and olive trees.
The main Villa was built in 1760 and is still inhabited by its original owners, who preserved most of its ancient features whilst modernising the art of welcoming their discerning guests.
The Wine Estate villas are on the same grounds. You will be staying in ancient buildings that were passionately renovated just two years ago, which offer a breath-taking view of the medieval town of Siena. The historic centre is just a 15 minute drive away. No real rush here. You will take the time to breath the seasons passing by through the wild flowers' scent. You can witness mesmerising sunsets over manicured grass leading to your private pool. The Villa grounds, the orchid gardens, the ancient greenhouse, the vineyards, the cellar and the old oil mill, the original wooden oven, la Signora Beppina and her hen house, everything here is still run in the authentic Chianti way.
The Villa can be reserved entirely by groups, families, for that special weekend, or a company retreat.

Wow! This villa was amazing and a great price for the amount of comfort you received. I went with 6 of my friends and we had an amazing time. We came to Siena to visit the city, but we never ended up going because the villa was so beautiful that we didn't want to leave. The host were very kind. They kept in touch through email and anything we needed, I knew that they would try to help us with. Beautiful scenery and amazing views from the back porch. Loved every second.
Our stay at Montechairo Wine Estate was the perfect ending to our honeymoon! Alessandro was an extremely gracious host and helped us to get taxis into Siena, set up private meals at the house and an amazing dinner at Mario's just down the road. I wouldn't change a thing and would definitely recommend booking the house for a family or couple. We will definitely return!
We had a lovely stay at Alessandro's villa. We couldnt have asked for a better host. Alessandro & his family were absolutely wonderful, warm & welcoming. They went above and beyond our expectations to make our stay a pleasant one. We were provided recommendations of restaurants in the area & their wine is fantastic! Our room was spacious & had a private bathroom with beautiful views. The pool with the amazing views of Siena was a perfect way to spend time relaxing in the hot summer sun. The location made it easy for us to move around Siena province and drive to Montalcino, Montepulciano, etc. On the drive in to the villa, there was an incredible field of sunflowers where I took many pictures! Our hosts even took us to the Palio and we had an experience I will never forget and one that I will never experience anything like again. It was a magnificent surprise! I highly reccomend a stay here.
L'Idyllic, porte son nom à merveille ! Nous y avons passé une semaine délicieuse, nos hôtes ont été très prévenants, attentifs et à la fois discrets.
Nous nous sommes sentis très à notre aise, et très chouchoutés.
Un grand merci à vous tous : Alessandro, Eugénia, Francesco, Pietro et Bépina ;-)
C'est un endroit que nous recommandons vivement et dans lequel nous souhaitons revenir très vite.
Au plaisir de revenir, de vous revoir et de découvrir votre belle Toscane au cours d'une autre saison.
La struttura è molto bella, immersa nelle colline senesi e in mezzo agli (website hidden) ha accolto la mamma di Alessandro, una signora molto gentile e disponibile.
Purtroppo siamo rimasti solo una notte ma torneremo senz'altro per trascorrere qualche giorno in più.
