Monteriggioni Suite

A suite with a view of Monteriggioni

Immersed in the Tuscan countryside

next to the city walls of Monteriggioni,

in the valley dominated by the imposing shape of Montemaggio

next to Chianti vineyards, between fields of grain, sunflowers, vegetables gardens and vines

there is the “Monteriggioni Suite”,

ideal dwelling for a couple desiring to alternate between moments of intimacy

and cultural and eno-gastronomical itineraries.

The Suite

A beautiful small stone house, located 300 meters from the historical hamlet of Abbadia Isola where you can find the abbey with the same name, built in the year 1000 on the via Francigena, a restaurant and wine bar. Continuing 2km by foot on the antique via Francigena, you come to the Castle of Monteriggioni, whose suggestive outlines can also be seen from the house.

Swimming Pool

In the large garden with a grass field in the English style, protected by high hedges, lies the swimming pool, surrounded by fruit trees (plums, cherries, pears, apples, walnuts) and many ornamental plants. The pool, which is for the exclusive use of the guests of the house, is 11 meters long and 5 meters with, with a depth of 1.20-2.00 meters, with optimal water quality, and a diving board. It is illuminated from the inside for stimulating night swims.

Next to the pool is an external shower and a pergola, shaded by climbing plants, with a table and chairs, sun chairs and loungers. The whole area is covered by wifi.


The house is partially surrounded by a covered porch where you can find a table and chairs for an outdoor lunch or relaxing reading sessions.

Inside, there is a large living room on two levels, a couch corner with TV, SAT, hifi, bookcase e fireplace, an eating area with a large table, and an area upstairs with a double sofa bed from which you can se the city walls of Monterigginio through the two windows.


The kitchen, accessible directly from the porch, is equipped with microwave, convection oven, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, table and closet with washing machine, as well as a functioning portable barbecue.

The first bedroom has a comfortable double bed, a dresser and a large wardrobe; the other bedroom has another confortable double bed, french doors, desk with PC and printer, the downstairs bathroom has a shower and the bathroom on the first floor has a bathtub.


The little house is on the via Francigena, the antique pilgrimage road toward the holy land, recently resurfaced and connected to several medieval centers.

One can make excursions on foot or by bicycle on the paths marked by the C.A.I. (Club Alpino Italiano), over which our guest will have detailed maps.


The little house is strategically positioned also for outings by car since it is located only 2 km from the highway interchange Firenze-Siena, on which you can easily reach Siena in 15 minutes, Florence in 30 minutes, San Gimignano in 20 minutes, Volterra in 40 minutes, Pienza in 40 minutes, and splendid typical villages of the Tuscan countryside, such as Radicondoli, Casole d’Elsa, Menano, San Galgano, Montecastelli, etc.

Perfect property in the perfect place to visit Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 week stay in Monteriggioni Suite and would definitely recommend this as a base for a Tuscan holiday.

Carlo and Silvia had prepared the villa really well for our arrival. It was really clean and arrival was very well organised. Emails are responded to very promptly and I felt really confident about this holiday pre-arrival. As we were staying for 2 weeks we were provided with clean bed linen and towels half way through the holiday.

The situation is outstanding. Views of Monteriggioni (floodlit at night) from the terrace are a highlight and we spent many evenings drinking the odd glass of Chianti and eating dinner whilst enjoying the peace, the heat and the view! We had 2 young children with us and the situation of this property meant that all the "sights" were within east travelling distance. During our stay the Medieval Festival was on in Monteriggioni which was definitely worth a visit and we just missed the Firework display on the last evening which will be an amazing sight from the villa . Monteriggioni Suite is also situated on the Via Francigena so we could walk along the Pilgrim route 2 miles into Monteriggioni. The local village, Abbadia Isola has a terrific restaurant and a great pub, so we were able to walk there in the evenings.

The Villa is well equipped and we had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday (the only thing we might have appreciated is a folder of suggested local activities, supermarkets etc?). The pool was a great asset for the children and they didn't want to leave Bebe the cat behind! Many thanks again to Carlo and Silvia for an unforgettable holiday.

A wonderful villa ideally located!

  • 5 of 5

The villa proposed by Carlo and Silvia is sublime. We found a wonderful place where we had a great vacation. Just arrived, we quickly immersed in the lifestyle "Dolce Vita".

The pictures showing the villa are beautiful but are below the reality. We were overwhelmed by what we found.

Furthermore, the villa is ideally located near the village of Monteriggioni and is close to beautiful cities and villages of Tuscany such as Siena, San gimignagno, Volterra and Firenze.

In addition, Carlo is very present and is ready for any request.

I highly recommend this villa to get perfect holidays and to discover this beautiful region of Italy.

Wonderful place in the heart of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect for a vacation in Tuscany. Its location between Siena and Firenze allows to do outings to all sights, if you rent a car (recommended). But the house is great too ! Spaceous, clean and with very friendly staff. Sylvia and her colleagues are very nice and always helpful. We stayed as a couple and coming from Shanghai enjoyed the fresh air in the countryside and the food in the villages. By the way a lovely restaurant in a small castle and a cute village are only a short walk away. All perfect for us. Also payment proceedures were extremely smooth and safe (via the VRBO site). So: All thumbs up !

We spent 2 weeks in the villa in August 2016.

The Villa is wonderfull, with everything available, you just have to enjoy fantastics holidays.

Silvia and Carlo are doing all their best to make all easier and perfect.

You can find all the things you want, nothing is missing.

At the middle of our week, clean bed linen and towels were changed, and the swimming pool is cleaned twice a week by Carlo, with always a smile for us.

The situation is perfect to visit Toscana, and the villa is so quiet that you think that you are alone in the world.

We will keep an unforgettable and magic feeling of this Villa, with Silvia and Carlo, and of course BiBi who was part of our hollidays :-)

Elena was so sad to leave the place and the swimming pool.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have had a very nice welcome by Carlo. The villa is fully equipped and well furnished, the kitchen includes all necessary equipment, the pool is really spacious and the garden is very nice. The views of the Monteriggioni fortress are breathtaking. We have had a wonderful vacation and recommend Carlos' Villa to everyone who wants to stay in a silent and quiet location only 20 minutes away from Siena.
