Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Hi, my name Sergio and I am glad to make happy the guests who come at the villa giving them the best services as much as I can. For making comfortable their stay, I am glad to give them all the information they need for the best tuscany experience.

Why the Owner Chose Montespertoli, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
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; one is well known "Ugolino Golf FClub"

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Remembering old times, In front of the villa two ancient stone lions statues guard the entrance (picture n. 4th). Many of my guests love to stay and have their meals in the large garden behind the villa whose many big trees provide shade and fresh at any time of the day. 'SPECIAL INTEREST HOLIDAYS' COOKING CLASSES WITH JACOPO - your chef and cookery teacher. WE CAN SUGGEST SPECIALISED PEOPLE ARRANGING BUS OR MINIBUS WITH DRIVER FOR WINE GUIDED TOURS OR A FLORENCE GUIDED TOUR. 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 area, 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 area.
