About the Property

Luxury Vacation Villa, v.private, 3 ensuite bedrooms, stunning views, large pool

WHY A 'CLUB'?
Mainly because this area has so much to offer that we hope guests will want to visit more than once. But also because what we offer is much more than a conventional 'self catering' rental; "home from home" luxury, with lots of extras & treats.

Our 'FULLY INCLUSIVE' weekly RATES cover: a generous WELCOME HAMPER of speciality foods & wines from top quality local suppliers(more than enough for the first weekend's catering needs), PLUS as much FREE Montecchio HOUSE WINE as you wish, throughout your stay. Our FREE COCKTAIL BAR of branded spirits and local liqueurs such as Limoncello is also kept stocked during your stay.
Our 5 star CONCIERGE SERVICE is provided by local boutique hoteliers, who help with everything from booking the best restaurants, to fixing a cookery class, or even a massage onsite at Montecchio!
ALL ENERGY COSTS are included - very expensive in Italy! ; all linens & towels are included(inc pool) with cleaning and change of linens every 3-4 days, and at end of stay; we provide a continuous supply of Fragonard bathroom toiletries and daily consumables (everything from dishwasher tablets to Montecchio's own Olive Oil!).
Indoor & Outdoor Games available, as well as Pool Toys for the Large Pool (19m x 6m , shared, open 01/05-31/09), in addition to DVD, Video & CD libraries offering a wide choice, and 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 located centrally in Tuscany, within easy reach of the main 'must see' destinations of Siena(20mins drive), Florence, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano and Montalcino(all around an hour). Further afield, but still easily accessed by autotstrada/highway are Pisa, Perugia, Orvieto, Bologna and even Rome.
What's more the Chianti Way(Chiantigiana) runs right past the Villa Arceno estate's front door, leading up into the Chianti, and all it's famous wineries(Felsina, San Felice, Brolio, Capannelle, Badia e Coltibuono, Castello di Ama etc), as well as picturesque towns such as Gaiole, Radda, Panzano, Greve etc.
But there is no need to roam afar, as Montecchio is surrounded by many beautiful and historic hillside villages, all worth visiting, and usually with bars and good restaurants.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1998

About: Montecchio is home in Tuscany to James and Penny Benfield, where we spend half of the year, and which we enjoy sharing with guests. We had the great good fortune to 'fall over' the best spot on the highest point of the beautiful Villa Arceno wine estate, when contemplating the right place for a vacation home. After 30 years of living in Central London, and spoilt by a corporate lifestyle with lots of travel, we needed something exceptional, in a beautiful setting, away from the developed centres of tourism. If you want to know more, do call James on his cell phone (UK code +44) 7879476002.

Why Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena, Italy:
Because it's a 'little piece of paradise' : - off the tourist 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 and easy 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 & quality wineries.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
"HOME FROM HOME" with 5 star standards of comfort and luxury; Countryhouse style & living with hospitality to match. Because we controlled the renovation of the large Tuscan farmhouse from the very beginning, we were able to develop the property with the emphasis on privacy. As a result, Montecchio is made up of PROPER HOUSES, and NOT APARTMENTS, as would be the norm in Italy. Villa L'Oliveto has it's own outlook, private garden, and segregated parking pergola. Villa L'Oliveto was designed and furnished in the same style as our own place at Montecchio; it was filled with pieces of art & furniture from our own collection. The kitchen was generously equipped to professional standards. The result, we think, is a comfortable Vacation Villa, that feels like 'Home from Home', from the moment that you walk through the front door. All this plus the owners' in-depth knowledge of the area, and it's amenities, with the 'inside track' on everything from which local retaurants are currently "hot", to where to park safely & legally in Florence|!
