SUMMARY OF VILLA AMPELLA LA TORRE 3 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 8

Photos and Description of this Montalcino holiday villa

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.

Amazing week in Tuscany!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I have spent a week at Villa Ampella La Torre from August 9th till 16th 2014. We were 6 (2 parents and 4 young adults). Our villa had 3 bedrooms. It was our first experience renting a villa. Usually, we go in nice hotels.
The verdict was unanimous. We loved it! Actually, it was the best week of vacation we ever had with our kids. Our kids loved it as well.
Because of our lack of experience with renting villas, we were a tad nervous. Would the premises be at par with the web site? Will the pool be a spa or a real swimming pool, will the AC be effective…
First, Paola was waiting for us despite the fact that we were late. She was very welcoming. She made us feel very comfortable right away.
The villa was perfect. Tuscany architecture, yet very new, very nice, very clean with a an amazing view. Well equipped.
The villa is situated between the villages of San Giovanni d’Asso and Montisi.
We radiated from the villa to Tuscany’s hallmarks such as Sienna, Montalcino, Montepulciano… Usually we were back to the villa around 5 PM. While my wife and I were making dinner, the kids would relax by the pool (which was a real clean pool).
This place is hard to beat. We strongly recommend it.

Bella Tuscany

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing week . As we were driving there, we turned a corner along the road somewhere after Sinalunga and the scenery took our breath away. Every hillside seemed to grow in beauty and our anticipation increased as we neared Podere Ampella and it more than met our expectations. That first evening, as we sat outside in the peaceful garden, a small bird was flying around overhead and the sun was setting towards San Giovanni D'Asso, and we relaxed for the first time in a long time. The week was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and more. We were really impressed with how beautifully finished the rooms were. We travelled to many of the surrounding villages and ate some incredible food (I'm still dreaming of a restaurant we visited in Montalcino--the pasta with truffle sauce was unlike anything I've tasted before). The photo above is of the sunrise on our last day in the villa. I love the way the hills looked when covered with that hazy glow.
Mauro was very kind, he made some wonderful suggestions to us for places to see and was very kind throughout our stay. But now of course normal life resumes and we're back to working long hours. Thank you for all your help!


Best wishes,

Andrea, Holland

The villa has everything you could ask for with a pool and the best sunsets.Our kids jenny, mike and frank had a terrific time . Our only problem arose when we had to leave not enough time.

Traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 out of 5
Wir (2 Erw./ 4 Kinder 4/7/9/11) haben einen traumhaften Urlaub in der Villa San Giovanni verbracht.

Das Haus entspricht sehr genau der Beschreibung/Fotos und ist durch das separate App. im Keller mit eigener Küche sogar für 2 Familien gut geeignet. Der private Pool ( nicht separat eingezäunt) ist sauber und gepflegt. Badezimmer/Duschen sind klasse.

Der Blick von der Terasse ist wirklich einzigartig !!!!!!!!!!!

Durch das abgetrennte Grundstück (sogar mit eigener Zufahrt) ist man für sich und bekommt von den anderen Gästen auf der kleinen Anlage Podere Ampella nicht viel mit. Die Anlage liegt allerdings relativ nah an der mäßig befahren Straße.

Paola und Robert wohnen direkt auf der Anlage und sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Die Küche könnte noch etwas besser ausgestattet sein.
Insektenschutzgitter vor den Fenstern fehlen leider.
Es steht nur ein Sonnenschirm für Terasse und Pool zur Verfügung.

Nur ca. 5 min entfernt ist das Ristorante del Castello in San Giovanni D Asso (unbedingt den Hauswein probieren). Sehr empfehlenswert.
Montalcino ist in ca. 15 min erreichbar. Sinalunga in ca. 20 min.

Die Villa San Giovanni ist sehr zu empfehlen. Wir werden bestimmt wieder hinfahren.

Tim, Miriam, Malina, Mariana, Marius & Maxine
