Located amongst the vineyards surrounding Montepulciano is Villa dell’Angelo, a delightful Italian villa transformed from a once-dilapidated residence into a stylish and contemporary home. The villa is located on a 51-hectare wine estate, with olive orchards and a truffle woodland.
The Sangiovese reds of the Val d’Orcia are considered amongst the best wines in the world. A perfect blend of Mediterranean sunshine, gentle south-facing slopes and a nutrient-rich volcanic landscape combine to produce wines that have been celebrated and enjoyed since Roman times. Dotted along the ridges and hill-tops of this spectacular region are medieval villages and Tuscan villas for rent as timeless as the wines themselves.
Villa dell’Angelo is comprised of three buildings. The main house sleeps up to 6 guests (+ 2 children/1 adult on a sofa-bed), with a well-equipped kitchen and living area and panoramic views across the countryside. Bedrooms have high, airy ceilings, terracotta floors and a gentle pastel décor typical of the region. Ground floor living areas open onto a surrounding terrace, neat lawns edged with swathes of rosemary, rose, jasmine and lavender and a lovely 12m x 6m infinity pool.
Adjacent to the main house is a separate cottage with a studio bedroom, sleeping 2 additional guests (+ 2 children/1 adult on a sofa-bed), with a small kitchen and private outdoor terrace area.
A short walk across the garden you can find the pool house cottage, which can accommodate a further 2 guests with one double bedroom, a lower basement bathroom and private poolside terrace.
Within walking distance of the villa (one mile uphill) is the town of Montepulciano and its charming historic centre (45 minute walk, 2 miles), with several good cafes, restaurants and convenience stores, perfect for a morning cappuccino or afternoon gelato. Easily reachable locally are Siena (40 minute drive), Pienza (15 minute drive) and Arezzo (30 minute drive), as well as Florence and the Chianti region for day trips.
