Villa Pietra del Diavolo, recently restored, is situated in one of the most beautiful and panoramic hill around Montepulciano.
“Pietra del Diavolo” is named after a stone composed of tufa layers particularly common in the local area.
The property is situated in the heart of the “Croce di Febo” farm, with breathtaking views over the valley where Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced.

Pietra del Diavolo produces marvellous wine and olive oil. Beneath the villa, it is possible to visit the vinification and aging cellar with its oak barrels where you can sample the wine and the extra virgin olive oil produced by the owners Silvia and Maurizio. They are also involved with the day-to-day running of their property and take pride in personally meeting all guests on arrival.
