Nice little touches

  • Montestigliano is a beautiful spot and this house is a great choice for a family holiday. There is help with cooking and meals and the children always meet new friends.
  • 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.

Good to know

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

Villa Giancarlo is a distinguished villa forming part of the extensive Montestigliano estate of 3.000 acres just south west of Siena.

Situated in exceptionally picturesque countryside, Montestigliano has all the characteristics of the classic Tuscan Great Estate: avenues of cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, woodlands and neat, cultivated fields. Other farmhouses on the estate have been converted for holiday use. Villa Giancarlo is the heart of this historic hamlet and has elegant period interiors that speak of ancient prosperity and status, with large, nobly proportioned rooms with high, beamed, decorated ceilings and antique furniture.

Accommodation

Villa Giancarlo is the large villa that presides over the hamlet's square, its formal orange facade acting as a backdrop to many a wedding photo and souvenir pic.

The entrance is from an external and formal staircase into a large entrance hall. On the left you'll find a simple kitchen connected to a dining room. On the opposite wing of the house there are two living areas that open onto a large panoramic terrace overlooking one of the swimming pools of Montestigliano‘s hamlet, with long-reaching views of the skyline of Siena.

Also on the ground floor, there is a single bedroom with a French bed and a bathroom with a shower.

From the entrance hall a wide staircase leads upstairs, where a large hall mirrors the downstairs entrance hall. From this elegant hall doors lead to two double rooms with bathrooms ensuite, one single bedroom with a French bed with bathroom ensuite and two double bedrooms sharing a comfortable family bathroom.

A large terrace surrounds the whole ground floor of the Villa and is fully equipped for dining out. From the terrace you can also enter a narrow and long Italian-style garden, a peaceful area where you can relax, read and enjoy the Tuscan landscape.

Around Villa Giancarlo

There are two large swimming pools shared by guests at the main villa and the farmhouses. Both have ample sun furniture and extensive views across the countryside as far as Siena. The pool nearest the villa is reserved for people who want peace and quiet.

The estate buildings form a small complex with some farmhouses and agricultural buildings in a beautiful position on top of a hill, with extensive views of the surrounding countryside. Wide, sandy floored cypress lined avenues traverse the forested hills of the estate, often terminating in belvederes at the most impressive viewpoints.

Although many of the stone benches which once flanked the avenues have gone, enough still remain to provide resting places on your walks down these romantic remnants of a more leisured era. Through the tangled woodlands, across the cultivated plain below, one can see Siena and the Chianti hills in the distance, and there is a rare abundance of wild flowers and animals. Wine, olive oil and other farm produce is for sale and guests are very welcome to watch or join in with agricultural activities.

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.
