Montalcino is surrounded by a magnificent country side with ancient villages, medieval churches and Abbeys. Roman and Etruscan ruins and the famous 9th Century Abbey of S. Antimo built by Charlemagne and of course there is much, much more.

Although small (1400 inhabitants within the walls) Montalcino has over 220 wineries. It is the home of Italy’s premier wine “Brunello di Montalcino”. Montalcino is also the principal town of the "Parco Artistico e Naturale della Val D’ Orcia”.  Declared by UNESCO as a “WORLD HERITAGE SITE FOR HUMANITY’. The surrounding area of the Val D’ Orcia includes the hill towns of Pienza, San Quirico D’ Orcia, Radicofani and Castiglione D’ Orcia.

There is so much to see and do in Montalcino and its surrounding countryside, that many of our long term guests take the opportunity to use Montalcino as a base for day trips to; Siena, Florence, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Lago Trasimeno, Pitigliano, La Maremma and the Tuscan Coast. Situated at nearly 600 meters above the river valleys of the Ombrone, Orcia and Asso rivers and just 40 km from the Mediterranean Sea, Montalcino’s climate is very gentile, with warm days and cool evenings.
