Villa Ostignano sits on a soft hill side enjoying beautiful views of the rolling countryside nearby the fortified town of Montaione. The old stone farmhouse, that’s over five hundred years old was originally a monastery has just been modernised and converted it into a very comfortable home with air conditioned bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms and a very well equipped, modern kitchen.
There is lots of living space for large families or a group of friends that want to enjoy a time together in a very special location. The well kept garden leads across to the private swimming pool furnished with very comfortable modern furniture enjoying beautiful views of the nearby town and of the countryside. Montaione in the medieval times was a very important strategic castle for the Florentine’s that controlled the access towards the coast, has a decent number of shops, restaurants, bars and a charming market that is only a 3 minute drive away. Great to shop, explore or pass hours watching life pass by.
One the ground floor a large open living dining space has been created with a fireplace, a sitting area and a dining area with a façade in by glass opening the room up to beautiful views. Just outside the kitchen there is an outside shaded dining area large enough for everyone to enjoy dining al fresco in the day or evenings with the same wonderful views of the country side that evaporate into the distance. There is a local concierge/manager that with our own concierge team can arrange dinners as breakfast and is always available to assist you in booking restaurants as advising you on the area. Privacy at Villa Ostignano is guaranteed by the 84 acres of private land and by the gated drive. Florence is about an hour away.
