Montalcino farmhouse description
Enter this property and you realize immediately you have ventured into the best Italy has to offer - exquisite views, sublime food, unsurpassed wine, and exceptional weather. As any Italophile will tell you, the Tuscan Val D'Orcia and Crete Senese (and in particular the area near Montalcino) is the most evocative and sensual part of Italy. There really is no better area -- as we have found in 20+ years of experience. Those pictures you see on the calendars, with the vineyards, rows of cyprus and hilltowns -- thats Val D'Orcia/Montalcino... It is, after all, a United Nations UNESCO Heritage Site. And for good reason. The sheer beauty is staggering. It is also the area where they filmed The English Patient, Romeo and Juliet, Only You, The Gladiator, Stealing Beauty, and Tea With Mussolini. Amidst this splendor is set the beautiful and private property known as Villa Brunello at San Sebastiano. This centuries-old, independent, four-bedroom, two-bath, 3250-square-foot home has everything to make your Italian vacation memorable. Just five kilometres from Montalcino (two-and-one-half as the crow flies), this ancient farmstead boasts views to die for - from Mount Amiata in the south to Siena in the North. And it serves as the perfect point from which to visit the most beautiful villages and cities in Italy - Montalcino, Allesino, Pienza, San Quirico D'Orcia, Volterra, Florence, Montepulciano, Siena, San Gimignano, Monterrigione, Pisa, Cinque Terra, and Rome. Or stop at the ancient Roman baths of Bagno Vignone and the monasteries at Monte Oliveto Maggiore and Sant Antimo,... or hike in some of the most beautiful scenery on God's earth. If you are feeling industrious, take an Italian cooking or language class nearby in the monastery where they filmed The English Patient. There are 2 world renowned Italian Language Schools very close by where you can take classes at all levels and varying degrees of immersion. Located on two lush acres surrounded by exquisite villas and vineyards, this very special home has been lovingly restored inside and outside to ensure your ultimate pleasure. And better yet it is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and hill towns in every direction. Open the wrought iron front gates to be immediately transported to La Vita Bella - a pea gravel courtyard welcomes you to your first view of the private church of St Sebastian and the verdant and generous Tuscan landscape. Once inside, your choices abound. Enjoy a beautiful outdoor courtyard just outside the French doors from where you will sip limoncello on quiet Tuscan evenings. Or lounge in the formal living room.with coved ceilings and gorgeous period pieces and memorable works of art and pottery. Read, contemplate or write in the quiet comfort of the study with views of the church and Montalcino up on the hill. In case you did not already know (and we are sure you did), Montalcino is the location where Brunello (by far the best wine in Italy, if not the world) is produced. And from Villa Brunello at San Sebastiano, you are ten minutes by car and foot to the best wineries and wine tastings in Italy. We have counted over 50, and by no means is that complete. Banfi, Barbi, Fanti, Tornese, Biondi Santi, Campanna, you name it, they are here. From $30 to $700 per bottle. There are also wonderful restaurants, enotecas, and gelaterias nearby in case you get the urge to indulge off premises. Many of them have al fresco dining with great views. You will soon find out, it is impossible to find a bad meal. But for those times when you are just too sated to leave, you will find the pool ( mts 5x11 depth mts 1.50 open from 15 of May to 15 of October), yard, and the outdoor and indoor living, dining, and relaxation spaces to be enchanting. This is what Italy is all about. You may never want to leave.
