On top of a hill, 650 meters above sea level, Montignoso is located in an absolute beautiful area, between two of the 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. Not far from Certaldo, Boccaccio’s hometown, and from Castelfalfi, Montaione and Gambassi Terme. The property of about 9 hectares, amid secular trees, uncontaminated air, pleasant climate, is a place 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. The estate consists of an elegant villa 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 building
