Ropoli Sotto 6

A Tuscan farmhouse set in an olive grove : Rosia, Siena

Nice little touches

  • Casa Ropoli enjoys uninterrupted views and, buffered by an olive grove, has greater quiet than that found in the Estate's central piazza.
  • Family reunions find taking Ropoli Sotto and Sopra a great arrangement.
  • The two swimming pools mean there is one that is kept quiet for reading and relaxing while the second one - further away from the houses - is for fun and frolics.
  • The estate organises Pizza evenings and other communal activities which are held in the main estate square.

Good to know

  • Pets are welcome, but only in Mid and Low seasons and never allowed around the swimming pools
  • Wireless internet available in all apartments, estate office, courtyard, furnished gardens and near swimming pools.

Montestigliano is a historic Tuscan estate west of Siena, on top of a hill with fabulous views. Some of the farmhouses and agricultural buildings on the vast estate have been carefully converted into comfortable houses and apartments. Guests on the estate share two swimming pools, one reserved for those who want peace and quiet, the other, further from the houses, for allowing free rein to summer holiday fun.

The hamlet is reached by winding up the hill on an ancient "strada bianca", a gravel road. The two Ropoli buildings are halfway up the hill. Stopping midway up the hill has some advantages and Ropoli Sotto enjoys them all.

It has sweeping uninterrupted views of the valley and the hills that surround it, is has greater quiet than that found in the Estate's central piazza, and it has an olive grove in its back garden and a pizza oven at hand.

Just the right size for a family, who will be delighted to know that the Family Pool is just a short walk up the drive.

Accommodation

On the opposite side of the road from Casa Damiano this spacious apartment is on two floors of Casa Ropoli, a house built into the hillside along the drive up to Montestigliano.

A door leads directly into a roomy living-dining room with a dining table for six, and a remarkable Etruscan cellar, a small cool cave carved out of the local Tufa rock.

A stairway from the living room leads up first to an eat-in kitchen and then further to the sleeping accommodations on the top floor.

There are two twin bedroom and a double bedroom and the choice of a bathroom and a shower room. A back door from the kitchen leads to a semi-covered, paved patio with a pizza oven and private garden. This house may use the covered parking area below Casa Damiano across the drive.

Around Ropoli Sotto

Guests at all the properties may wander at will all over the estate. Part of the lands front the River Merse, which has excellent swimming and is protected for bathers by the Sienese authorities. The tiny village of Torri, with its famous monastery and striped cloisters is two minutes away by car, while there are pizzerie and restaurants within a few minutes' drive. A very important extra here is provided by the charming owners who will unobtrusively keep out of your way or happily go out of their way to help you, providing endless extra services if you require them.

During the summer concerts and exhibitions are often organised in the ancient granary, an extraordinary lofty space (14 X 28 m.) spanned by great arches laced with tie bars. This barn is also very suitable as studio space for art courses or conferences, and the rooms below, next to the estate offices, include a games room with billiards, TV, ping pong, a dining room, a catering kitchen and a small gift shop. The little restaurant provides delightful suppers twice a week.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
