Vacation Apartment Rental Description:



Villa Leopoldo D is a romantic 60-square-meter (about 646 square feet) apartment
which sleeps two people. It features shared swimming pool and garden. The
apartment is part of a medieval castle on the hills of the province of Siena
which are famous as the ‘Crete Senesi ’. You will have air-conditioning and
parking space at your disposal.

At Villa Leopoldo D you will have a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a
room with a kitchenette, and a small living area.

The place

Villa Leopoldo D is actually inside a medieval castle set on the top of a hill
and surrounded by the green of cultivated lands. The castle is on the outskirts
of the medieval hamlet of Montisi.

You will be in a region of Tuscany, which along with Florence, is the most loved
by tourists and travelers: the landscape consists of small wavy hills whose tops
nestle villages of medieval origins rich in history and master pieces.

You will be surprised by discovering how everything here has been preserved
throughout the centuries and also how life runs in such a tranquil pace amidst
castles, vineyards, and olive groves; an atmosphere you will enjoy plunging into.

The castle in which Villa Leopoldo D is located is the main house of a farm,
where you will be able to taste and purchase wine, vin santo, extra-virgin olive
oil, and limoncello.

In the hamlet of Montisi you will have a restaurant (10 meters or about 33 feet
away from the castle) and small food shops. Other stores, restaurants, and
supermarkets are found in San Giovanni d’Asso (8 km or about 5 miles away), in
Pienza (12 km or about 7.5 miles away) and also shops open on Sunday in
Sinalunga (15 km or about 9 miles away).

The castle hosts four gracious apartments restored as vacation homes which hold
eleven guests the most overall.

Its history

The castle where you will be staying was built in the fourteenth century with
the purpose of protecting the goods and the lands of the Hospital della Madonna
della Scala of Siena. Throughout the centuries, the castle was controlled by
several administrators, each establishing works to the fort and their own coat
of arms on the walls, many still seen nowadays. In 1775 the castle and part of
the lands were sold by the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo of Tuscany to its last
rulers, ancestors of the current proprietors.

The castle was surrounded by high walls and ditches, and it also had a
watch-tower which was destroyed during the World War II. In its interiors you
can see two old courtyards around which there were the shops of artisans. You
can even visit the bedroom where the Grand Duke used to sleep, with its
magnificent canopy bed and also the small eighteenth-century theater.

The shared gardens and swimming pool

During your vacation at Villa Leopoldo D you will have two large green areas
kept as gardens at your disposal. These are shared with other guests of the
castle.

In one garden you will have the beautiful swimming-pool, 11 x 7 meters (about 36
x 22 feet) large. On the sun-drenched area around the pool, you will have deck
chairs, sunloungers, and umbrellas.

The swimming pool is available from half April to half October.

A covered loggia with a beautiful view to the valley will offers you some
coolness and shade.

In this garden there is also a masonry barbecue and a pergola furnished with
wooden tables and benches, perfect for outdoor meals.

From the garden you can reach a wide portico under which you will have a
ping-pong table and some mountain bikes.

The second green common area lies along the wall of the castle facing the valley.
You will see two high Lebanon Cedars, a pergola of wisteria, and several
terracotta vases where lemon trees have been planted. In the shade of the trees
there are tables and chairs. From this garden you can step into a rustic room
with a vault ceiling in bricks and furnished with wicker armchairs, a table, and
objects of the old countryside life, a perfect place to enjoy your hobbies.

The house

You reach Villa Leopoldo D from a courtyard inside the castle after taking a
staircase of about 10 steps. The apartment is comfortable, spacious and
elegantly furnished. You will have a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a
living-room with a dining-table and a small living area.

The romantic windows face the inside courtyard of the castle.

The kitchenette is equipped with a four-burner stove, a small oven, and a fridge.

The floor is in terracotta, the ceilings are sustained by wooden joists, and the
atmosphere is typical of the Tuscan countryside life.

Nearby tourist attractions

While at Villa Leopoldo D, you will be 50 km (about 31 miles) away from Siena
and 110 km (about 68 miles) away from Florence, in a convenient position to
visit the beautiful cities of art of Tuscany on one-day trips.

Montalcino, with its splendid vineyards and its beautiful cellars, where the
‘Brunello di Montalcino’ wine is produced, is only 27 km (about 17 miles) away.
