We have been visiting since 1996

We have been visiting since 1996, always with friends, and always feeling that we are returning home when we arrive. A typical day targets a town we have never visited, shopping the local food markets, and preparing a dinner feast to enjoy outside until the sun goes down. Good friends, good food, good wine and the most extraordinary setting. Can't wait to return!

Such a rewarding experience bears repeating

We cannot imagine a more ideal place from which to appreciate the splendors of Tuscany. What a splendid place you have in Montisi! The stunning landscape that surrounds it, the rustic beauty of its construction and the elegance of its interior appointments were very special to us.

Sampling the Olio Novo

Sampling the Olio Novo

In the Fall of 2012 my husband and I stayed at the house in early November, during the olive harvest. The olive press in the village was running full-time pressing the farmers' olives, and in the evening we ate at the Torre contrada, a neighborhood association.

Chiusure Walk

Chiusure Walk

I took this photo on a walk from Chiusure to the monastery Monte Oliveto Maggiore just a short drive from the house. Dramatic views of the Crete senesi, literally ‘Senese clays’. Paired with lunch at the Paradiso Cafe in Chiusure, it's a wonderful way to spend the day. -- Peter Kaplan Cambridge, MA USA
