                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1970

                  About the owner: Hi, my name is Sergio and I am tasting a very good Water-ice in Cefalu' (Sicily August 2011). When my job leaves me free I like very much to travel with wife and sons. And when I am working at the villa I am very pleased to make my guests comfortable their stay suggesting them some good restaurant too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Montespertoli:
                  My father bought this property in 1970. He worked as a sharecropper on a small farm cultivated with olive trees near the house, but in 1956 due to a large frost many trees died and he and his family left the farm. He moved to Florence where he undertook various activities. In 1970 he was offered this property and he bought it. Now I think it was a great satisfaction for him because after 15 years of work had bought the house of the landowner for whom he worked. I lived in Florence, and every afternoon I was with my father at the villa and I remember that I was so excited for all those rooms and those old furniture in the villa. I grew up here and this house is part of my life. I loved the property and now I am happy when guests enjoy their stay here. It is located in one of the most beautiful and quiet locations in the area on top of a hill surrounded by a ring of hills around. Because of its position every view from the villa in any direction is really fantastic. The villa is at the centre of the triangle Florence-Pisa and Sienna so in more than half an hour drive you can reach the most important towns in Tuscany. For who loves golf there are two colf clubs in the area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Within walking distance there is Montagnana village where you can find a very good restaurant well known for its Florentine steak, the best pizzeria in the district, bar, post office, Bank , newspaper and grocery shop . The bus stop to Florence is 300 metres away. Because of my job I know a lot of farm, so I can suggest some of the best wines in the district.
