Villa La Monta

Lying along the Cintoia Valley, Villa La Monta takes its name from the main activity it was historically taken in this building. Here the bull of the valley use to live and all the heifer of the area were taken here for the seasonal reproduction “La Monta”.
You can see the particolar stones used to mount the winch still staying in the proper area inside the house.
Looking out from the living room windows, partially hidden in the forest, you can see the old walls of the Castle of Cintoia, overlooking on the valley from more than 800 years.
Restored a few years ago from an important florentine family, Villa La Monta opens its room to become a place for vacation or longer stays, in the middle of the Chianti at a very short distance from Florence and the faboulous Piazzale Michelangelo.
It is made of 4 bedrooms – each one with its private bathroom – a big kitchen and a livingroom with a big fireplace on a corner to allow guest to enjoy the relax and silence of Chianti with a cracking fire in the winter or on the big garden – more than 4000 sqf – during the summer. The swimming pool in the Oliveta and the outside covered patio are perfect to enjoy the summer and aperitifs or dinner prepared on the outside BBQ.
The few olive oil tree allow us to have “our oil” even if in a very small quantity.
Wifi, Smart Tv and fast connection can make Villa La Monta the perfect remote working place for people that would like to enjoy the staycation in the Chianti with tranquillity and the typical noises of the countryside.
The valley has some tracked path for light hiking and a ring of 13 km of path&free walking in the forest.
We wait for you to visit Villa La Monta and enjoy this amazing Chianti Valley.
