Property description

WHY A 'CLUB'?

Mainly because this area offers so much that we hope guests will want to visit more than once. But also because we offer so much more than a conventional 'self catering rental'.

We think our guests should know what their stay will cost, with no hidden 'extras', so our 'fully inclusive rates cover:
- a huge luxury WELCOME HAMPER of speciality foods & wines supplied by top quality local suppliers; as much of our COMPLIMENTARY MONTECCHIO HOUSEWINE as you wish, throughout your stay. Our COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAILS TRAY of branded spirits & liqueurs such as limoncello;
- ALL ENERGY COSTS - even logs for fires, and charcoal for the bbq;
- continuity in Fragonard toiletries, and all daily consumables(everything from dishwasher tablets to Montecchio's own olive oil!)
- all linens & towels(inc pool) with cleaning & change of linens every 3-4 days & at end of stay;
- indoor & outdoor games, as well as pool toys for the large pool(19m x 6m); DVD & Video libraries with a wide choice for all ages & tastes
- FREE WIFI.

The result, we think, is a truly comfortable vacation villa, that really feels like 'HOME FROM HOME", from the moment that you walk through the front door. We hope that you will be tempted to come and judge for yourselves!

Club Montecchio is equipped to a very high standard, and furnished with antiques and country furniture from Penny and James' private collection.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Penny & James Benfield had the good fortune to 'fall over' the best spot on the beautiful Villa Arceno wine estate as they were contemplating what to do after 30 years of living in London. Having been spoilt by a corporate lifestyle with lots of travel, it needed to be something exceptional, that indulged their enjoyment of good food & wine, in a beautiful setting,but away from developed centres of tourism.

Why the Owner Chose Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena, Italy:
Because it's a piece of paradise: - off the beaten track; - in a stunning location on a hilltop, with breathtaking 360 degree views of the Chianti hills; - in the countryside, but surrounded by picturesque villages, and just 20 minutes from the Renaissance gem of Siena; - close to major roads, giving fast access to Florence, San Gimignano, Cortona, Perugia, Orvieto and many more "must see" places; - and most important for self confessed "foodies", the area offers a wealth of good restaurants and quality wineries.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unparalleled peace & tranquility in accomodation that was purpose developed to give 'home from home' comfort & luxury. The owners' in-depth knowledge of the area, and it's amenities, probiding the 'inside track' on everything from which local restaurants are currently "hot", to where to park safely & legally in Florence.
