About this listing
The villa is a private house which has recently been completely rebuilt and refurbished and up to ten people for 200 euros a day! with a reduction from the second week!!!
The interior is light, airy and elegantly furnished with antique and modern design furniture. The views on all four sides are stunning panoramas of rolling Tuscan countryside with the town of Montepulciano only a couple of miles to the west. Its grounds are completely surrounded by vineyards and olive trees.
The villa is cleverly arranged so that it can either be used as a whole or be divided into two independent flats, at half price each.
There is a large swimming pool set (14 x 3,5 m) in a large garden with well watered lawns and tall trees providing ample shade even in the hottest summer.
There is free wireless internet connection throughout the villa and the garden.
The ground floor apartment has a large entrance, spacious living/kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The upper apartment is on two floors: on the first there is a study, a spacious living/kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms, one bathroom and in the loft there is a second very large bathroom with a 2m x 1m sunken bath, and a study/living room with a sofa bed under the eaves, therefore limited headroom.
In the surrounding area of the villa you can visit the enchanting town of Montepulciano with its architectural and artistic attractions and its ‘cantine’ where you can taste and buy the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Nearby is the lake of Trasimeno, as are the beautiful Unesco protected valleys of Val D'Orcia and Val di Chiana, the towns of Pienza, Cortona,
Chiusi, Cetona, San Quirico D'Orcia, all famous for their artistic heritage, and Montalcino where again you can visit its ‘cantine’ where the world famous Brunello di Montalcino is produced.
Other possible excursions are the thermal towns of Bagno Vignoni, San Casciano dei Bagni and Bagni San Filippo, where you may enjoy a hot thermal bath and relax in one of the several spas.
The picturesque small towns of Monticchiello, Montefollonico and Lucignano d'Asso are are definitely worth a visit as is the Basilica of Monte Uliveto Maggiore. For those interested in art the fabled cities of Siena, Perugia, and Arezzo are only a 45 minute drive away. Not much further are Assisi, Orvieto and Florence.
When we decided to rent a house in Tuscany for a family vacation, there were many options and to be perfectly frank, Rodolfo's house was not our first choice. But after spending a week there, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Tuscany. The location is very central, 10 minutes from the center of Montepulciano, and close to many other beautiful Tuscan towns and sights. The house itself is very secluded and private, on a side gravel road far away from traffic. The garden is lush, and there is always shade somewhere to hide from the sun, the swimming pool is much larger than it appears on the photos, and the views from the rooms are spectacular. The kitchens are large enough for 5 people to cook together. The bathrooms are large and because there are many of them you never find yourself waiting hours to take a shower. Overall we had a wonderful, peaceful, energizing time at Rodolfo's.
Wunderbares Haus mit wunderbarem Gastgeber. Rodolfo war bei den ganzen Vorbereitungen sehr verläßlich, und er sorgte dafür, dass eine sehr kompetente Ansprechpartnerin vor Ort zugegen war. Sie stand uns auch während der gesamten Tage mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Die Anlage (Garten, Haus, Pool) ist sehr gepflegt, was sich während des Aufenthaltes mehrfach bestätigte. Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet. Angenehm waren die Ventilatoren in den Schlafzimmern. Gerne erinnern wir uns an einen sehr, sehr netten Aufenthalt in einer malerischen Umgebung.
Wonderful place to stay! Lots of space in the middle of vineyards. Rodolfo gave perfect directions and was very easy to communicate with. Teresa was lovely showing us around the villa and gardens. Perfect for a relaxing family holiday!
We fell in love with this place, which is even better than what we already expected from the listing, and Rodolfo was always quick to reply to our queries. The house is beautifully decorated, open and airy, with unbelievable views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside, particularly from the charming little study on the second floor. This isn't just a house in the country - for the time you are there, it feels like a home, and we didn't want to leave. There is (almost) everything you need to cook meals, with modern appliances, including a great dishwasher, and the bathrooms had ample modern sinks and shower heads. The beds were comfortable, the house spotless upon arrival and our host, Teresa, most accommodating and helpful. We also appreciated the extra deck chairs around the pool, and the surrounding garden is very private. We would happily make this our regular holiday home.
My wife and I have just completed a delightful stay in Rodolfo's Tuscany Villa. The description and photos in the listing are absolutely accurate - the house is superb.
Pre-trip Rodolfo did a fine job responding to our queries by email almost immediately, and this gave us confidence beforehand that our experience was going to be a positive one, and indeed it was!
The house is rather like an artist's retreat. It has stunning and quintessentially-Tuscany views of the surrounding countryside, beautiful grounds and pool, and the house itself is packed full of books and paintings. The house is huge and is very well equipped.
Teresa the housekeeper and her family do a fantastic job preparing and maintaining the house for guests to an exceptionally high standard of cleanliness and presentation. They were very warm and welcoming, with lots of laughter and smiles compensating for our lack of Italian language skills.
This stay rounded out our special anniversary Italy tour perfectly. Many thanks to you, Rodolfo and Teresa!
This is a wonderful villa and looks the same as the photos. Its clean, spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. A car is a must as its located in Ascianello, a town next to Montepulciano (around 10 mins drive).
Rodolfo is very responsive which makes the reservation process very smooth and easy. Thanks for having us in your villa!
