An idyllic secluded retreat far from everyday buzz yet on Siena's doorstep and a short ride from Florence and the seafront. No real rush here. Private converted barn for up to 10 guests, with exclusive pool overlooking the Tuscan rolling hills.

The space

Montechiaro Wine Estates is a historic stately home where you can still experience the old Chianti lifestyle as it once was, slow and calm just like 300 years ago. A private idyllic retreat for the discerning traveller who wants to leave it all behind and find peace. Here, a 10th generation family still patiently grows organic grapes and olive trees.
The main Villa was built in 1760 and is still inhabited by its original owners, who preserved most of its ancient features whilst modernising the art of welcoming their discerning guests.
The Wine Estate villas are on the same grounds. You will be staying in ancient buildings that were passionately renovated just two years ago, which offer a breath-taking view of the medieval town of Siena. The historic centre is just a 15 minute drive away. No real rush here. You will take the time to breath the seasons passing by through the wild flowers' scent. You can witness mesmerising sunsets over manicured grass leading to your private pool. The Villa grounds, the orchid gardens, the ancient greenhouse, the vineyards, the cellar and the old oil mill, the original wooden oven, la Signora Beppina and her hen house, everything here is still run in the authentic Chianti way.
The Villa can be reserved entirely by groups, families, for that special weekend, or a company retreat. Please enquire with us.
If you book for less than 10 guests, one room every two guests will be prepared. The following en-suites are offered:
CABERNET Suite (Double / Triple Room with Private Bathroom and Shower)
COLORINO Suite (Lush King-Size Bed with Private Bathroom and Shower)
MALVASIA Suite (Lush King-Size Bed with Private Bathroom and Shower - accessible also by disabled travelers)
MERLOT Suite (Lush King-Size Bed with Private Bathroom and Shower)
SANGIOVESE Suite (Lush King-Size Bed with Private Bathroom and Shower)
All guests have exclusive access to a spacious drawing and dining room with a fireplace, beamed ceilings, library with books and board games, private terrace and pool.
The price indicated is per night per room. Should you wish to book the entire grounds please do not hesitate to contact us: we shall be delighted to assist!

The house is in the most beautiful location, the family were so welcoming and we had a wonderful stay. The pool is a little away from the house on a slope, no issue for us but worth noting if anyone in your party is not completely mobile. We enjoyed every aspect of the house and the pool but the views during the day and the stars at night made every day even more magical.

Amazing. Can't recommend highly enough. Lovely people, lovely place, just the break I needed. If you want to get away from it all this is the place.

This location is outstanding loved having the pool really gave us great family time. Thanks for great suggestions on places to see.

The best place ever! If you are looking for a true Tuscan experience I must say hands down this is the best place to stay. The pictures do not do it justice. It is even more beautiful in person!! Definitely the highlight of our trip. From beginning to end Allesandro has been very responsive and handled everything I asked...we had a large group celebrating their Anniversaries and I wanted to choose a special place. We stayed at several AirBNB's throughout the trip in Italy and Allesandro was the best host by far. It was so nice meeting him and the gracious Eugenia who checked us in and also Chiara who helped answer many of my questions. They helped to arrange transportation and anything we needed. They arranged a special home cooked dinner by chefs. We enjoyed it on the (URL HIDDEN) was incredible and the wine tasting at their winery was superb. My friends are still complimenting me on choosing the best place we stayed in Italy. I only hope to return one day for a longer stay!

I don't have enough good things to say about this place. The view is absolutely beautiful and pictures could never do it justice. Six of us stayed there and had the time of our lives. For us, the highlight of our trip was the exclusive wine tasting lunch we had with Alessandro. His wines were extraordinary and the food complimented them perfectly. It's obvious that food and wine are two things that Alessandro is very passionate about. Alessandro and his mother both gave us very good recommendations with places to shop and eat, we couldn't have asked for more. During our two week trip to Italy we also stayed in Sardinia and Venice but the highlight of our trip was definitely staying at the Montechiaro Villas!!

The stay at Allesandro's place was great! We went with our family, including small kids, and we've had a perfect time! Pooltime, games and the pool BBQ filled up our time pretty much at the house. We also did a wine tour with Allesandro, which was great and very nice wines, which of course we took home! There are enough activities to do in the area, make sure you'll have a car, since the view is nice you don't mind driving 30 minutes to an activity.

The pictures and description are accurate, this place is idyllic. Our group of 11 (ages 19 to 54) stayed for 5 nights and we never tired of the view. Monte Chiaro is stunning and Alessandro is the perfect host. Very responsive at every step of the booking process. He suggested two nights with chefs, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Sabrina and Sandra were wonderful and very accommodating (we had three guests with different food allergies). We ended up cooking ourselves two nights. There is a small grill down by the pool and we had florentine steaks, grilled veggies and risotto. Eating meals on the patio overlooking the countryside . . . Perfect vacation. We also did the wine tasting/garden tour, which everyone enjoyed. Perfect location to explore Siena and surrounding towns. We visited Siena, Assisi and San Gimignano before moving on to Florence. We would stay again (and hope to). Highly recommend!
