Chianti Val d'Elsa - Volterra
Villa Vivaldi is on the upper floor of a spacious residence. Another villa is on the ground floor. The Residence is set among the green hills of the Tuscan countryside, 3 km away from the small medieval town of Montaione. The Residence also includes 2 other villas and an apartment.
The property is surrounded by a very large, charming garden. The whole structure has been recently restored and carefully and elegantly decorated. The Villa is equipped with modern amenities including Satellite TV, dishwasher, and Jacuzzi bathtub. Outside guests can relax by the pool. The Residence area is enclosed by an automatic gate for guests’ privacy and security.
Guests who want to alternate relaxing time with activities won’t be disappointed as the area around Montaione offers many possibilities. Near the Villa guests can experience golfing, horseback riding, mountain biking and wine tasting. In addition here are many interesting towns and villages to explore such as San Gimignano, San Miniato and Volterra. Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca are reachable in less than 1 hour. We suggest guests visit the town of Montaione, with its medieval history and the church of San Regolo which houses the “Madonna del Buon Consiglio” – a painting that dates to the 13th Century and was painted by a follower of Cimabue. Also worth mentioning is the monastic complex of San Vivaldo and its Holy Mount, just 5 Km far from Montaione. There, a series of small chapels transforms the monastery into a smaller copy of Jerusalem during the time of the Crusades.
Outside the Villa, there is a private garden area that is equipped with tables, chairs and umbrellas for relaxing al fresco. In the Villa's private garden there is a covered dining area and barbecue where up to 8 people can enjoy meals outdoors.
There is a large parking area for guests that is enclosed by an automatic gate. Guests will be supplied with a remote control to open the gate.
The pool area is shared with the other guests of the Residence. It equipped with sun chairs and umbrellas.
The pool is open from Easter time until the end of October.
