A cypress-lined gravel road takes you to the entrance of this Val D’Orcia estate, reminiscent of scenes from movies. Located in the heart of Tuscany between Siena and Florence, this timeless place allows guests to experience Italy’s premier red wine producers and embrace the Tuscan lifestyle, with Brunello di Montalcino as their guide.
Located in the heart of Montalcino, renowned for its exceptional Brunello wine, this estate has a rich history of wine and oil production dating back to 1580. The owner’s goal was to preserve, restore, and bring the past back to its former glory, using it as a luxury element and giving it a modern and contemporary touch. The property’s commitment to ethical practices and a better future is evident in the warm, comfortable houses, which are designed for a relaxing vacation and equipped with modern amenities like new generation air conditioning and Wi-Fi. The house, with its eleven bedrooms, boasts a panoramic position in the medieval town of Montalcino, offering both privacy and independence. The thick stone walls, creamy plaster, pale red terracotta tiles, exposed wooden beams, and fireplaces all contribute to the rustic charm of the property.
The property is divided into three units, each featuring a kitchen and living room. It can accommodate up to twenty guests and offers communal dining and living areas. The outdoor swimming pool provides breathtaking views of the Tuscany hills. The cellar, which has been conservatively restored, houses high-quality wine from our own vineyards.
The design approach was informed by extensive research into the historical context, as well as a focus on material recovery and sustainability. The property features refurbished ancient terracotta floors and painted wooden beams, vaulted ceilings, and a mix of custom-made furnishings made from recovered materials and contemporary elements such as sofas. Traditional Italian-culture elements, such as olive grinding equipment, are displayed alongside contemporary elements like Corten sheets and modern kitchens. The house has a welcoming vibe and embodies the best of Tuscan architecture and style. Each apartment also includes a laundry room with a washing machine, iron, and ironing board for added convenience. Although the main professional kitchen is for staff use only, each unit is provided with its kitchenette, featuring the tools needed to cook basic meals, including an oven, a microwave oven and a double temperature professional fridge. The estate offers its private restaurant available for guests only with a selection of local exceptional wines (at additional cost).
