Montisi lies in the Val d’Orcia, just 24 kms from Montalcino, 50 kms from Siena and roughly halfway between Florence and Rome. It is also the jewel in the heart of one of the most interesting areas in Tuscany, lying between Pienza and Asciano and surrounded by San Giovanni d’Asso, Castelmuzio, Petroio and Trequanda. The miniature town grew around the 12th century castle and despite its small size it offers numerous restaurants and bars, a 100 seat cinema, a music school and a ‘live’ theatre not to mention the many festivals and events that it hosts throughout the year.

This town house has the rare bonus of a small, South-facing garden, with ample space for dining and easy access from the kitchen and inside dining area. The true highlight however is the oval, travertine plunge pool, perfect to cool off in the summer months and designed to be able to sit inside whilst placing your prosecco on the outer ledge as you enjoy the marvellous views of the surrounding olive groves and vineyards.
