Exteriors Villa Montaione is an oasis of peace, where the uncontaminated nature, with its age-old trees, spans the hearts which Beethoven described in his Pastorale. Place of volcanic nature, emerged from diluvian waters. This Tuscan Villa offers an unequalled view, which never sates. With that clear sky making a present of the far seaview. The sun comes and warm every day, while the morning fresh air comes to appease the nights. It is an isle of beauty where the sound of silence becomes joy of living.The property of about 9 hectares, amid secular trees, uncontaminated air, pleasant climate, is a very isle of beauty and peace. The high walls in stone on the front, as well as the strong enclosure around the whole wood - kept as a park - and the internal road, running across the whole estate, guarantee an absolute privacy, where relaxing or walking, lulled by a gentle breeze after being enchanted by one of the most charming view. The estate consists of an elegant country house with its lovely dependence, recently restored in its original style as an exclusive residence for guests. The style is elegant and tasteful, but absolute sober in its elegance. The villa is white coloured, with grey finishing touches that frame windows and doors, while the dependence is a typical hard stone buildingOn the top of a hill, 650 meters above sea level, this Tuscan House is located in an absolute beautiful area, between two of loveliest medieval towns of our region: San Gimignano and Volterra. 30 km away from Siena, 45 from Florence, 35 from Pisa, 50 from Lucca, 60 from the seaside.
