Casa Massimo is part of Montestigliano – a privately-owned estate, set in beautiful rolling countryside just a few kilometres from the historic town of Siena – Montestigliano is a working farm covering over 2475 acres of olive groves, fig trees and woodland. It’s ideally positioned for exploring Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Pienza and many, many more towns and villages within this beautiful part of Tuscany.
The estate comprises eleven dwellings all dating back to the 18th Century. There are two large pools - one is a quiet pool for those seeking tranquility and the other is a family pool where families can play games and be a little more boisterous. The two large pools are some distance apart to ensure peace for those wishing to seek quiet away from families.
There is a fabulous games room where you’ll find table tennis, table football and a large screen where films and sporting events are shown from time to time. This area is perfect to ensure children escape the midday sun during the summer months and can provide hours of entertainment during the evenings for children and adults alike.
Each week the staff at Montestigliano arrange two dinners in the main piazza under the stars with views over the surrounding countryside. These meals vary and may be a barbecue, pizza night or a typical Tuscan meal. Francesco, the estate manager, and his team work exceptionally hard to ensure you make the most of your time in the region and are always on hand to answer any questions or to assist with local restaurant reservations, wine or olive oil tasting and much more besides. The welcome is always guaranteed to be a warm one.
Casa Massimo is a raised ground floor apartment which was originally the loft for Vin Santo making. It has a lovely partial covered terrace looking over the olive groves and orchard, it has a private garden with chairs and table. External stone steps lead to the upper ground floor.
