Montecchio is our home in Tuscany which we enjoy sharing with guests.
We found this little piece of paradise 15 years ago – a hilltop location at the
end of a 300 year old Cypress tree alley, in the middle of a Chianti Wine Estate.
It was the ideal place for our holiday home:
- Off the tourist track
- The breath-taking scenery of the Chianti Hills all around
- In the countryside but surrounded by picturesque villages
- Just 20 minutes from the Renaissance gem of Siena
- And importantly, as we are unashamed ‘foodies’,
the area offers a wealth of choice in good restaurants and quality wineries.
We now live at Montecchio for half of the year, and and in deciding to
offer a villa for rent, we wanted to provide the sort of place that
we would wish to rent ourselves; somewhere that really felt like “Home from Home”.
So our rental villa L'Oliveto was designed and furnished in the same style as our own place, filled
with pieces of furniture from our own collections, and the kitchen equipped to a professional standard. Villa L'Oliveto
is a proper house with it's own outlook, private garden and segregated parking.
In the best tradition of country house hospitality, we offer lots of complimentary
goodies and services. We are especially proud of our complimentary 5 Star Concierge service,
which is available from the moment you book, to help plan ahead to get the most out of your stay.
