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 some houses 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 houses were designed and furnished in the same style as our own place,
filled with pieces of furniture from our own collections, and the kitchens equipped
to a professional standard. Each rental unit is a proper house, not an apartment(as would be the norm in Italy),
with a separate outlook, private garden and segregated parking.
We are always looking for new things to add to our guest offer,
and for 2016 we have introduced complimentary cotton dressing gowns
