Property description

Casina Pellegrino - Tuscan Villa.
A charming three tier house nestled in the sun kissed hills of Montepulciano, Italy. Enjoy gorgeous views in a perfect location that is less than a few minutes walking distance from the main Squares and the downtown areas. The house sits right outside the Medieval City Walls which means you get unobstructed, picture perfect views of the region with those Olive groves and vineyards right from your balcony and terraces.
Imagine waking up to breathtaking views of the Tuscan hill country from your private balcony or window. Open the French doors leading to the large terrace where you can enjoy breakfast lunch and dinner at your own pace. Appreciate the local wine, olive oil, bread and cheese so close in town. Lounge under the Tuscan sun, on a comfortable chaise with a glass of wine in your hand overlooking the 3 nearby lakes shining in the distance. Walk over to the medieval town center and visit the 16th century monuments, local specialty shops, sit in the main square to drink an Italian Espresso and listen to a free classical music concert. On your way back home, indulge in a homemade Gelato.
The house is big enough to accommodate and sleep up to 10 people comfortably. It is fully renovated with modern amenities, includes 2 separate full bathrooms, including a bathtub with view over the hills. In a town where parking is scarce and comes at a premium, you will be able to park 2 cars in dedicated spots in front of the house. The kitchen is fully equipped and allows you to cook fresh meals using local ingredients from the farmers market. Or if you want, visit one of the many restaurants nearby and sample some delicious 'Pici' a Tuscan specialty.
Montepulciano, located right in the middle of the Tuscan Region, is an important medieval and Renaissance hill town in the province of Siena. With its elevation of 2000 feet and surrounded by Olive groves and Vineyards, it provides an amazing combination of views, world renowned wines, culinary experiences and rich history. The town is located 45 minutes away from Siena, an hour and a half from Florence and two hours away from Rome.

**Seasoned travelers tip:
Many tourists come to Italy each year but only a few Insiders understand Montepulciano is the perfect location because it is central and so close to many big cities and popular places in and even outside of Tuscany! It is quaint enough however, to give a true and very authentic experience of what Italy stands for: Food, Wine, Beauty, History, Basking Sun and some definitely fun and very welcoming people!
To truly experience and enjoy this country it is best to Rent a Car and use Montepulciano as a base from which to organize day trips to the most popular cities: Florence, Rome, Siena, etc. You will not only wake up to unparalleled views from the spacious house an get a lot more for your money but you will also avoid the hustle and bustle of the big metro areas. So, Instead come and enjoy the dolce vita (sweet life) in a peaceful and traditional italian town that has served as background to many popular movies (Under the Tuscan Sun, The Twilight saga, Letters to Juliet, English Patient and more.) From the you can walk to many historical markers and enjoy the day at your own pace or simply take the car and do a scenic drive on to the next cute town of Pienza, visit a castle in Montichiello or go vineyard hopping for example. There are so many options you can choose from, that is why Montepulciano and Casina Pellegrino, offer you the best of Italy no doubt.
