Amiata is a
carefully and tastefully renovated country villa set in the most desirable
location in the beautiful Val d’Orcia. Guests are accommodated in four queen bedded rooms. There are four bathrooms. The villa has been recently updated with every
possible modern convenience. Amiata is part of a 15 hectare (38 acre) wine
estate and is surrounded by olives groves, vineyards and oak woods.
A bottle of wine and a bottle of olive oil are included in the price. It has a
panoramic swimming pool and thanks to its position, it is possible to easily
reach the historical center of Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant’Antimo with ten
minutes of driving.
From the main road an unpaved private road of about 800 meters (NOT suitable
for low bottom cars) leads to the
villa, therefore it is very private and quiet. It faces one of the most
enchanting and expansive views of the entire Val d’Orcia. Located halfway up the
hill of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, it benefits from a privileged position between
the valleys of Amiata. The panoramic swimming pool directly faces the
enchanting view of the Val d’Orcia and the vineyards.
The wine cellar is located 500 meters from the villa and it features the best
systems for the biodynamic production of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.
This beautiful house is located 10 km from Montalcino,
where you can find groceries shops, pharmacy, post office, banks, wine shops and
many delicious restaurants. In Castelnuovo dell’Abate – at 2 km - you will find
