Photos and Description of this Montalcino holiday house

Unique traditional Tuscan homes on a hilltop in the true heart of Tuscany

Located in the Val d'Orcia valley declared a world heritage site by UNESCO this is truly the magic heart of Tuscany. Cypress tress, Rolling hills filled with Vineyards and Olive Groves seeing is believing.

With 2 and 3 bed houses all with their own private gardens and terraces for al fresco dining with full use of the swimming pool and sunsets to die for. We also have two private villas with their own private pools, private gardens and seperate entrance.

The 360 views are amazing from each and every home. What makes us special is our hilltop location combined with quality fitted kitchens and bathrooms to make your stay a home from home experience.

We are nestled between the hilltop villages of montisi and San Giovanni d'asso and only 10 mins from montalcino home to the world famous brunello di montalcino.

Only 20 mins away is Siena and the renowned Palio. Come enjoy, relax and explore this unique part of the world.

For those ski lovers we are just 25 mins from Mt Amiata ski slopes

Podere Ampella gives you the chance to live the relaxed Tuscan lifestyle in the idyllic setting of this exceptional hilltop hamlet overlooking the wonderful Val d’Orcia landscape, a landscape so unique that UNESCO has listed it as a world heritage site. This is the perfect location to relax and unwind, where you can choose to do as much or as little as you wish.

This hamlet has a collection of eleven privately owned villas and apartments finished to a very high standard. The hamlet has been designed in the traditional Tuscan style using local materials and the typical architectural style.

All the properties are fully furnished and well equipped; each has its own private terrace or garden and two of the villas have their own private pool. The shared pool has a paved surround furnished with loungers and parasols and is set in a stunning position overlooking the surrounding countryside.

Podere Ampella hamlet is positioned between the historic towns of San Giovanni d’Asso and Montisi where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and banks. The hamlet is ideally situated for exploring Tuscany with the cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca within easy reach, or venture over the border into Umbria to visit the historic cities of Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia.

San Giovanni D’Asso is a delightful hilltop town only 3kms from Ampella Hamlet. Dating back to medieval times the village surrounds the walls of a twelfth century castle. Here you will find traditional Tuscan restaurants and shops selling the local produce. The town boasts the only truffle museum in Italy, as well as hosting an annual truffle festival in November each year. There are also two important churches; the Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, and San Pietro in Villare. The picturesque Tuscan town of Montisi is 4kms from Ampella Hamlet. In August each year there is the annual jousting competition “Giostra di Simone” which sees many of the townsfolk dress up in medieval costume.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really had a great time at this wonderful place! Everything was perfect styled, clean and well organized! We loved to be at Podere Ampella. The kids had fun at the pool and we made many trips. The area is beautiful, wine and food delicious. We hope to come back soon.

just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Tuscany at your villa. We were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation and appreciated the warm welcome you gave us. We hope to return to Tuscany again in the future and will certainly like to stay in one of your villas on our next visit.

We really enjoyed our break at Podere Ampella. Paola and Robert were fantastic hosts. The house has been renovated recently and the facilities were fantastic. The kids enjoyed the hugh pool overlooking the Val d'Orcia valley. We will never forget our holiday at Podere Ampella and will be back with friends next year.

Great views

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for one week in casa Beppe and our friends at casa Marta. Both of houses have a fantastic views. We were lucky with weather for first days, children and we too, really enjoyed the pool. Houses are simply but nicely furnished. Bring your soap and you have to buy toilet paper, salt, sugar,pepper..
Te owner Paola is really nice and friendly, all booking process from beginning was very easy, I get always very quick reply for all my questions. Paola even call me at arrival day in the morning to confirm our arrival time. We haven't visited this time Siena or Florence. This time we visited Montalcino (15 min drive), Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Pienza and design outlet the Mall (1h15 m. drive), you will find there Gucci, Prada, Tod's and many others brands. A shop in San Giovanni is small, in Sinalunga is much better choose.
Thank you and best regards from Finland, Helsinki; Olga, Janne, Liisi, Peppiina, Isra, Mervi, Jurkki, Simo, Ismo

Under the Tuscan Sun for a

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Casa Marta for one week in June 2010. We had a bit of difficulty finding it in the dark because there is no sign, but the directions provided were really quite accurate. You really need a car for this private area. We had a wonderful visit, the beds are very comfortable. Paola was delightful and responsive to our requests for additional linens. The kitchen is well equiped and the furnishings are very adequate for the price.
Podere Ampella is perfect for a relaxing vacation. We were pleased that this was the perfect base location for day trips to many locations including Montilcono, Chuisi, Montepalciano, Sienna, Montissi... Enjoying breakfast and dinner on the patio with the lovely views of Tuscany was delightful. For those from the USA it is important to note that no soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc are provided so bring your own or buy locally. We were very happy and will hopefully return again.
The pictures and descriptions are accurate and you can find more information at their own web page www.podereampella.com

Sehr schönes Gut in der Nähe von Montalcino

  • 5 out of 5
Hallo,
im Juni 2009 haben wir, 2 Erwachsene, 1 Kind v. 3,5 Jahren, eine Woche in einem der Ferienhäuser gewohnt und uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Die Anlage besteht aus 4 Häusern mit je 2-3 Wohneinheiten und 2 separaten Villen. In der Mitte der Anlage befindet sich ein grosser Innenhof. Die Anlage ist komplett neu gebaut und 2009 ist die erste Saison in der überhaupt Gäste dort wohnen.Die gesamte Anlage ist grosszügig angelegt und sehr ruhig.
Das von uns bewohnte Haus "Villa Ampella" verfügt über 2 Bäder, 2 Schlafräume und eine moderne Küche sowie einen Wohn- und Essbereich. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und wie schon beschrieben neu. Zu jedem Haus gehört eine eigene Terrasse mit Stuehlen und Tisch sowie ein Stück Garten mit Rasen.
Der schöne Pool ist für alle Gäste - ausser den Villengästen, die haben einen Privatpool - und liegt etwa unterhalb der Anlage, ca. 1 Minute Gehzeit und ist mit einem Zaun abgetrennt. Liegen und Schirme stehen ebfls. zur Verfügung.
Die Eigentümer sind sehr nett und jederzeit sehr hilfsbereit.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort hinfahren und freuen uns schon auf den nächsten Urlaub dort und können Podere Ampella ohne Einschränkungen empfehlen.
