    “The apartment is located in a small village in the countryside. Here you can enjoy the Tuscan countryside in peace and quiet and there is a really nice situated pool to cool off. There is a farm shop, where you can taste home-brewed beer, delicious wine and self-produced salami and cheese on site. We spent a very nice holiday and would return anytime. The nearest supermarket is located about 10 minutes by car.”

    “Nature is a dream. For those seeking peace exactly the right destination. On the other hand also a very good starting point to discover Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and reach surrounding medieval villages quickly, since one is in the middle.”

    “The shopping facilities are some distance away but you can make a bulk purchase. Just a coffee spot with smaller meals and slightly longer opening times would be great!”

This is how holiday rental owners described Monteriggioni

This land was already being farmed thousands of years ago by both the Etruscans and Romans to produce olive oil and wine, giving rise to the variety of countrysides that we see today.

The Chianti area includes the medieval towns of Castellina, Radda, Greve, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Gaiole. Villa Vianci's ...

central location within this context provides the exclusive opportunity to visit and come into close contact with this rich and varied area of Tuscany.

From the terrace of the villa you can actually admire the beautiful medieval castle walls that surround the village of Monteriggioni. The town still preserves most of its 13th century-era buildings and is a unique example of a medieval Tuscan town.

Its round belt wall embraces with in a very linear fashion the top of the hill, with fourteen towers that stick out into the air.

On the edge of an extensive plain and at the foot Monte Maggio near Villa Vianci, guests can also visit the abbey of Abbadia a Isola, a rare example of a Romanesque church in the Siena area composed of three naves and three apses, surrounded by a small village and the ruins of medieval fortifications. Inside the church important frescoes are preserved.

Exploring the land between the two most important cities of Tuscany, Siena and Florence, you should definitely not miss a tour of San Gimignano. From every direction, the first thing that will strike you as you approach are the thirteen medieval towers that overlook the valley and mark the skyline of the town. Walking through the streets of the village, you can still breathe the atmosphere of the small workshops of artists and craftsmen, potters and goldsmiths who made the wealth of the city in the 12th century.

Also in the area, we highly recommend a visit to the old town of Certaldo, whose origins date back to 6th century AD. The town is mostly famous for being the birthplace of the poet Giovanni Boccaccio and, a little lesser known for the tastiness of its special onions.

For those who want to go off exploring off the main roads and find those a bit more scenic, we suggest a drive along the Via Volterrana whose continuous ups and downs in the hills will let you discover, curve after curve, an unusual landscape very different from what is commonly seen in Tuscany.

A must along this route is, of course, the town of Volterra. The first settlement of this town dates back to the 3rd century BC, and to enter it you have to pass under the famous gate "Porta dell'Arco", unique case in the world of an Etruscan construction still standing in perfect condition.
