The agricultural estate of Montestigliano has been owned
and run by the Donati family for over fifty years and is
still today a working farm. Centrally located in the heart
perched high on a hill commanding magnificent views of the
Senese landscape, Montestigliano is not only the perfect
retreat but also an ideal location to discover and explore
The immediate surroundings of the 2500 acre estate
provide a glorious setting for walking or trekking through
woodlands and meadows, a game of bocce under the shade of
oak trees, swimming in the River Merse, painting or simply
beside either of the estate’s two modern swimming pools.
Accommodation is composed of a group of 18th century houses
and buildings which have been carefully restored, retaining
many of the original features common to Tuscan architecture
such as exposed beam ceilings, whitewashed walls and terracotta
tiled floor. House rentals vary in size accommodating from
2 people to 12 people.
The houses and apartments are simple,
no two are alike, and each has its own charm and character.

All are self-contained with fully equipped kitchens;
bed and bath linens, iron, telephone and most have wash machines.
