The Holiday home
“Il Cielo in Terrra” (= “Paradise on Earth”) is located in a large olive grove, nestling in the gentle hills of the idyllic Elsa Valley, tranquil and sunny with panoramic views. The former 17th century country residence has been entirely renovated and converted by its owners into two semidetached houses of which one is available for holiday guests. The result is a successful mixture of Tuscany ambience, modern comfort and tasteful furnture in its original rustic style. The clever division of the generous grounds of the former country residence offeres to you as a guest enough space to find your very own personal retreat.
The living area (approx. 210 m²) which is on 2 levels comprises a living room with fireplace, a separate dining, an eat-in kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The gratis WLAN Internet connection, washing machine, dish washer and a fireplace complete the picture. The private outdoor area is particularly impressive with garden, 2 terraces, barbecue and the generous pool area with swimming pool (approx. m x m, normally open from mid-March until mid-October), sunbathing lawn, outdoor shower, a further terrace and a separate whirlpool (can be heated). From here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Tuscany landscape with its gentle vineyards and olive groves!
The centre of Montaione (approx. 4 km) offers numerous shopping facilities, restaurants and bars. Approx. km from the house there is a supermarket. If you cannot bear to leave the whirlpool and the unique panorama of this „Paradise on Earth“, you need not starve! In a small room of the house the owners provide gratis a large selection of their own products, including for example seasonal vegetables and fruits or eggs. Also own produced olive oil and wine are provided (against payment).
If you are a nature lover you will appreciate the many opportunities right on your doorstep to explore the wonderful and varied surroundings, by mountain bike or on foot. Within 10 minutes you will reach 2 golf courses and a tennis court. The house is also the perfect base for those interested in culture and art to discover the treasures of Tuscany. Within approx. 30 minutes you can be in San Gimignano with its mediaeval town centre and world-famous dynasty towers. Florence, Siena and Pisa are all just an hours drive away. If you would prefer to visit these cities by train, the station is approx. 15 km from the house. There are sufficient parking spaces for several cars within the grounds.

The centre of Montaione (approx. 4 km) offers numerous shopping facilities, restaurants and bars. Approx. km from the house there is a supermarket. If you are a nature lover you will appreciate the many opportunities right on your doorstep to explore the wonderful and varied surroundings, by mountain bike or on foot. The house is also the perfect base for those interested in culture and art to discover the treasures of Tuscany. Within approx. 30 minutes you can be in San Gimignano with its mediaeval town centre and world-famous dynasty towers. Florence, Siena and Pisa are all just an hours drive away. If you would prefer to visit these cities by train, the station is approx. 15 km from the house. Montaione:
Montaione (approx. inhabitants) nestles in the gentle hills of the Tuscany landscape, high above the idyllic Elsa Valley (Val d’Elsa). The views here in the triangle formed by Siena, Florence and Pisa are breathtaking and the unique landscape with postcard character, combined with Tuscany flair, attracts visitors seeking tranquility, nature and culture, from every corner of the world.
Montaione, located almost in the middle of Tuscany, is the perfect base from which to explore this picturesque region during interesting and varied excursions – for example to the „City of Towers“, San Gimignano which is a 30-minute drive away. The historic centre of this UNESCO World Culture Heritage is typical of the image of romantic Tuscany and is known the world over for its dynasty towers which were built in the 14th century by the Patrician families living here as a demonstration of power.
The city of Florence, a treasure chest for sight-seeing, is an absolute „must“ for any visitor to Tuscany. The elegant city of Michelangelo's „David“, Dante Alighieri and the Medicis is approx. 1 hour's car drive from Montaione or approx. 40 minutes by train (the train station Castelfiorentino is approx. 15 km from Montaione). Every visitor will want to see the impressive cathedral, the central Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Michelangelo's „David“ and the Ponte Vecchio. However, another jewel which should not be missed is the beautiful church San Miniato al Monte, located high above the city and with a superb view of Florence. Watching the sun set here is a unique experience!
Siena is somewhat quieter than Florence but has much to offer in the way of culture and sights. A proud city of great importance in the history of Tuscany and Florence's main historical rival, Siena continues to exude the glory of the past. The magical mediaeval old city centre is with an hours car drive from Montaione and may be described as one of the most beautiful places in Italy. Siena is best known for its Palio - probably the most famous and also the toughest horse-race in the world. The Palio takes place twice a year – on the 2nd July and on the 16th August when the 17 districts of the city (Contrade) compete against each other on the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, fighting bitterly for honour and fame. There is more peace and quiet on the Piazza del Duomo, where the main church of the city is located. This cathedral, which the locals
affectionately call „La divina bellezza“ („the divine beauty“) is a Gothic masterpiece. The facade with its intricate patterns of white, black and pink marble is truly remarkable.
