These 3 independent apartments and 1 suite are not only most attractively and tastefully designed and furnished, with utmost attention to stylish detail, including displays of original artwork, but they are also set in an ideal location just outside the historic centre of Montalcino. Nestling at the foot of the hill on which the town stands, the shared gardens enjoy superb views out across the terraced clusters of medieval houses, right up to the historic town-hall belltower at the very top. In a raised, suntrap position in one corner of the grounds lie the three small communal pools, with their sunterrace alongside.

These properties are housed in an old, converted furnace or kiln, where bricks were produced in the 19th century, and the recent restoration work has carefully preserved many of the original, beautiful, structural features: such as the graceful brick vaulting and archways that divide the rooms internally; the mellow tufo-stone external walls; the terracotta-tiled roofs; the terracotta-tiled/wood-beamed ceilings; and the whitewashed interior walls. This traditional architectural context has been strikingly complemented by the integration of modern design elements, which include light-wood parquet flooring and built-in units, large, bright, glass doors and some stunning, original, contemporary art and photographic work decorating the walls.
 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

Located in a quiet residential district in the lower part of historic Montalcino, just at the foot of the hill below the town-walls, the property grounds are enclosed by a high, mellow-stone wall. Double wrought-iron entrance gates open on to a small, gravel courtyard, shaded by a mature fig-tree, where informal outdoor parking spaces are reserved for the private use of guests only. This is an enormous asset, as the town-centre is a traffic-free, pedestrianised zone, where parking is truly at a premium, especially in the summer season!
The ground-level apartment is accessible directly from this forecourt, although its little, private lawn, the perfect spot for al fresco dining, is screened from view by a tall hedge. Stone steps, with handrail, proceed up to the communal garden and the three upper-level apartments grouped round it. The well-tended lawns of this idyllic, sloping garden are set in raised, stone-wall beds and are dotted with a host of shady, native trees, such as mimosa, pine, fir and olive. The grass is crossed by terracotta-tiled pathways, which weave their way among olive trees and sage plants, past typically Tuscan lavender, rosemary and rose-bushes in ceramic pots. An impressive, giant agave plant stands at the far end, against the perimeter wall that encloses this secluded, internal space, where only restful birdsong punctuates the silence!

From here, as from the inviting gazebo encircled by olive trees and furnished with table and chairs, the spectacular scenic backdrop can be savoured at leisure: in one direction, uphill to the extraordinary townscape of Montalcino, silhouetted against the sky; in the other, up a series of sloping olive-grove terraces to a pretty little hilltop church nearby.

Also located in the grounds is a wood-burning pizza-oven for those special, relaxing, open-air dinners, as well as three small interconnected pools, plus adjoining raised sunterrace, accessed via some stone steps, with handrail. One of the upper-level pools is a jacuzzi, while the other spills down decoratively into the lower pool. Further steps, with railings, lead up to two outdoor showers and a small indoor Turkish Bath.

Botto & Bruno (sleeps 4): Botto & Bruno is the most spacious apartment between the four, it has an ample living room with a double bed, a kitchen, a bathroom with shower and a small loft with two single beds. It is ideal for a family because to reach the loft you have to pass from the double bedroom and there is no door between the bedroom and the kitchen.
