KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Formerly a watchtower positioned on a hill top to control the valley below, Tenuta Montefreddo was extended at the beginning of the 18th century and recently underwent a complete renovation aiming to preserve the charm of the old estate but allowing for modern contemporary amenities and comforts. The villa is set on a farming estate where vineyards and olive groves are cultivated to produce high-quality wine and extra virgin olive oil.
The nearest village is Piazze at 3km from the villa, here you will find various shops, restaurants, bank and a post office. The thermal spa towns of San Casciano dei Bagni, Chianciano Terme, Bagni San Filippo and Bagno Vignoni are only a few km's away. Within an hours drive are the splendid medieval villages and towns of Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, and Orvieto. Rome, Florence, and Perugia are also easily accessible for day trips and for a relaxing and regenerating visit.
San Casciano dei Bagni at 10kms is a lovely little spa town famed since the Roman times for its hot springs. San Casciano is also home to the famous Fonteverde Spa, where you can go to relax in the thermal waters and indulge in the various pampering treatments offered.
