Set on the very edge of the wildlife reserve Villa Piaggetta is a stunningly restored property set in carefully landscaped gardens with generous lawns and flowering and Mediterranean borders. Sculpted into the landscape, the vast infinity pool follows the contours of the hillside and the views on all sides are simply quite breathtaking. Flag-stoned courtyards surround the house and the shady Tuscan stone loggia veranda takes in sunrise and sunset. A former hay barn now offers a superbly appointed garden room for sitting, reading dining or relaxing or simply even after dinner dancing – on a classical note of course. Restored to its original Tuscan form and beauty, the interiors have been inspired on an Etruscan note. Wonderfully light and airy, furnished with contemporary flair.

Montaione is in the heart of Tuscany, close to Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa, and it is exactly in this area that the first Etruscan colonies were located. Walk through the old streets of this medieval village observing the customs of the people and learn the tradition of its cuisine and its typical local products.
Festivals, events and markets are present all year round and most of the feasts are held to celebrate Tuscany's products like wine, olive oil, saffron and local delicacies.
This area is most renowned for the “cacio” production, the typical cheese of Montaione, the honey, and the white truffle. Montaione is one of the few Italian areas where white truffle is cultivated. This mushroom can grow only in areas without environmental pollution.
