Villa Montecucco is located at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level, twenty minutes’ drive from the castle estate of Vivo D’Orcia. It benefits from absolute privacy, but has access to all of the conveniences that the Vivo D’Orcia estate affords. The sprawling estate of Vivo D’Orcia takes its name from the majestic Val D’Orcia region in which it is found.
This beautiful valley is a nature preserve located in the southernmost part of Tuscany with magnificent views 360 degrees around. Shimmering olive groves, stone paths dotted with cypress trees, endless vineyards and centuries-old chestnut trees surround the immediate vicinity, and the nearby villages of Colle Sant’Angelo and Montalcino can be seen from the property’s altitude.
The large living room with open fireplace lies on the first floor of the house and leads onto 3 of the 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The decoration of the house is full of taste; mostly using textiles from a Tuscan weavery located near Arezzo. In front of the kitchen door a vine-covered pergola with table and chairs for outdoor meals looks out over the wide and open valley.
The pool measures 4x15 meters and is equipped with deck chairs and sun beds. An outdoor shower, as well as a pergola for shade will make this area the centre of your outdoor life.
The gentleman farmer and owner of the house, Alessandro Tognozzi, will be welcoming you personally.

Das Haus war sehr schön mit elegantem und schlichtem Interieur. Der Pool war fantastisch mit einer wunderbaren Länge und der Ausblick war
natürlich grandios. Wir haben uns sehr gefreut über die nette Dame die am ersten Tag für uns gekocht hat und auch einen Einkauf für uns übernommen
hat. Unser Hausherr war sehr herzlich und ist 2 mal zu Besuch gekommen und wir verbrachten dann auch einen herrlichen Nachmittag bei ihnen im
Schloss. Ich kann nur jedem dieses Haus weiterempfehlen, der die Ruhe und Schönheit der Toskana erleben will. Einziger Nachteil: Es ist relativ
abgelegen wenn mann mal schnell einkaufen gehen will oder ähnliches.

I just wanted to say thank you, grazie, vielen dank for helping us
realize our dream of staying at a farmhouse in Tuscany. Montecucco was perfect, we loved it! Alessandro was wonderful, very charming and helpful. The highlight of the trip was the Tuscan dinner cooked by Liliana. What a fabulous feast! I am recommending Trust and Travel to everyone I know. Arreviderci and Aufwiedersehn,

Dear Alessandro, Thank you very much for your hospitality! We all loved our time at Montecucco, the villa is amazing and we would all love to return one day ( and also visit you in Vivo d’Orcia to share your wine ). Six of us will return to Melbourne and two go back to London...It was a fantastic place for a group of friends to be reunited for a week. Thanks, once again!

I have had a great time here. My favourite bit of the holiday was swimming the length of the pool underwater. Thank you for letting me stay here.

„Montecucco“ must be a Tuscan for „GEM“!! It was the perfect base to explore Toscana! Alessandro is the epitome of a country gentleman and Lillianna a Tuscan chef! We had dinner every night ( when we weren’t out ) under our wine covered pergola and enjoyed the view! The pool has the MOST marvelous view and lazing under the Tuscan sun by it was heaven. We have has the most marvelous holiday along with our Milanese friends. We look forward to returning one day! Highlights ? There are too many to mention!

Dear Alessandro, thank you for a great week in this lovely villa! It’s a perfect location to explore Southern Tuscany. Some lovely walking through the trees down towards the river. We recommend the following restaurant: Il Leccio in Sant Angelo, Ristorante degli Archi in San Quirico and I Lecci.

Dear Alessandro, we had a terrific time in your beautiful house and your beautiful country. A great way to explore Tuscany, all of this made our family gathering very special. We had many fun moments by the pool, cooking food and exploring the local wines ( a lot ) . If the kitchen table could speak it would tell tales (but we are glad it can’t).

Thanks a lot for your advice and help on these vacations, our stay in Montecucco was marvellous. The house fully met our expectations as well as the service provided on site by the lovely owner Alessandro.
We will stay in touch,
