Watch the light over the ancient and iconic Tuscan landscape from the comfort of this delightful property for eight
San Giovese occupies an exquisite position overlooking the charming hill town of Montalcino, with unparalleled views of Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its iconic Tuscan landscape.
But what makes this location particularly special is the exquisite light, and the villa is situated to make the very most of it and of the views. Set in five acres that include a vineyard and olive orchards, the original building dates back to the 1600s and a meticulous renovation has resulted in an elegant mix of old and new.
Inside, handcrafted pieces sit side by side with contemporary Italian design pieces and much of the paintings and photography on display is the work of the American owners. Under-floor heating and cooling systems mean the house can be enjoyed all year round.
On the ground floor, the kitchen, dining and living rooms flow into each, each with doors to the terrace and pool. In the summer months guests will live as much outside as inside, enjoying the solar-heated pool, dining and sitting terraces and the wood-burning pizza oven and BBQ.
Montalcino is just a short walk away and is a delightful place to stroll thanks to its charming mix of shops, restaurants and historic buildings. Famed for its Brunello wine, guests can take vineyard tours, enjoy a tasting in the villa’s private cantina or simply relax on the terrace with a glass while watching the light on the hills ahead.
