Montaione

Villa Bianca is on the top of a hill in the parish of Montaione. Florence and Pisa are less than 1hr away, Siena 40mins, San Gimignano 30 mins and Certaldo and Gambassi Terme 20mins. The nearest shops, banks, restaurants, and all other services are at Montaione 6km, and Castelfiorentino 6km

Airports:Florence and Pisa (less than 1 hr) Car Hire: Available at Florence and Pisa Airports. It is advisable to rent a car when staying at Santo Stefano as the nearest shops and restaurants are 5 - 6km away.

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.

The Castelfalfi 27 hole golf course is only 10 km far from Villa Bianca.
