Tuscany is synonymous to endless wine tastings, small hill top towns and tall cypress trees. But there’s so much more to it. Tuscan Dreams of Montestigliano was born out of the love and hospitality of the people of Montestigliano- a tiny hamlet in the region.
Tuscan Dreams of Montestigliano
In the past years of my travel in Italy, I had visited the most popular tourist destinations in Tuscany namely- Florence, Fiesole, Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni. To be honest, I had not really spent enough time in the countryside so it was difficult to describe the oomph factor about staying there. Everyone raved about it, so I was only curious.
Where is Montestigliano??
So I stayed in Montestigliano for 3 nights to remedy this and also visited their adjoining luxury property, Villa Pipistrelli.
Montestigliano is a little hamlet on top of a hill with a view of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The hamlet is owned by the Donati family and divided into different homes and apartments, each named after a family member. This hill top luxury farm also offers swimming pools and recreation areas. The hamlet includes a private chapel, an olive oil brand and a personal vineyard. In addition, the property is located at a strategic location from Siena, Florence and Pienza and is therefore very popular, even for weddings!
Montestigliano is a relaxing place away from the hustle and bustle of bigger towns. It is also a perfect base for trips to parts of Val d’Orcia and Siena!
Why Should You Book Montestigliano??
Apart from the points I mentioned above, Montestigliano is DREAMY and SPECTACULAR! There are no words that could do justice to describe this area of Tuscany. Even in the foggy winter, I felt there was a different charm to the property. But what makes it different from the other Tuscan villas?? It is the warmth of the service and the inviting family.
Luisa Donati along with her entire family were excellent hosts. A special mention to Francesco 🙂
