Sagra del Tordo is an ideal combination of medieval hill town and Tuscan countryside. Historically a textile dyeing borgo, this unique property offers a relaxing and peaceful holiday with all of the conveniences of being located right in the heart of town. It is a quiet spot featuring a spacious garden, pool, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath and private parking. The basins originally used for dyeing fabric have now been turned into the pool and Jacuzzi.

Check availability

Sagra del Tordo is named after the Montalcino festival that takes place the last weekend of October. It is a celebration filled with pageantry, processions, and ancient archery competition. Montalcino is also famous for its Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino wines and you can try them by the glass at the enoteca in the town fortress.

Surrounded by olive groves, the property has nice views over the town of Montalcino and the Val d’Orcia hills. The many shops, restaurants, galleries and attractions of Montalcino are within ten minutes walking distance (800 meters) from Sagra del Tordo.

The property sleeps 6 guests in 3 double bedroom suites, each with private bathroom and bathtub and/or shower. An additional two guests can be accommodated for an additional fee. Furnishings and décor are a tasteful mix of traditional Tuscan style and modern Italian design. The owner is an art collector and there are many paintings of contemporary artists who are well represented in some of Europe’s most famous museums.

The owner lives on the property with her daughter. She has an independent access and just a small part of the garden is shared with the owner. The pool, the Turkish bath and the rest of the property is for guests only. Please note that the pool and Jacuzzi are not heated.

The property consists of three separate buildings (see floor plan) with the garden in the center. It is rented as one single property only and the three units cannot be rented separately.
