"An undiscovered treasure"
A well appointed and comfortable villa facing south overlooking beautiful Tuscan countryside with the abbey S Anna Camprena in the distance. This abbey of the film English Patient fame.
Montisi is a wonderful small village with adequate Osteria and ristorante and centre only 1.2km from villa, a lovely 15 minute stroll. The villa grounds too lovely to leave and explore the nearby more tourist popular villages including Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and Siena
