My self, my husband, my mother and aunt all stayed at the Montechiaro Estates in September and had the best time. The villa we rented was lovely and very big for the 4 of us. We order ahead of time a basked filled with fresh fruits and vegetables from their estate, which also had local meats, cheese and their wine...

We came to Montechiaro for a wedding, which became an unforgettable experience. The location in the middle of the wine yards and the top of the hill give some spectacular views of the surroundings including Siena. The swimming pools are great, and you are treated like a family guest. The wines are delicious and very special. We had a wine...

We visited Montechiaro in May 2016 specifically to taste the wines that are produced at the estate and to gain an understanding as to how Alessandro Griccioli crafts such great wines. Prior to sampling the most recent vintages though, Alessandro treated us to a fascinating tour of the estate and the Limoniai where the scent of 10's of lemon trees...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience at Montechiaro. From beginning to end the entire family was absolutely amazing. This was my second time staying at Montechiaro, and I will absolutely be back. When I think about going to my "happy place" - this is it. On this trip, La Capannina was booked for our first night. The...

We enjoyed three nights at La Campana. The view was fabulous! Rooms comfortable each with a full bath. We were with friends from the Netherlands who spoke some Italian and more German so they were able to communicate with Eugenia. Alessandro treated us to a grand organic wine tasting - simply the highlight. We explored Siena and the Chianti country...

Lovely new rooms with an aristocratic understated twist and postcard-like views over the rolling hills of Chianti. Lovely new bathroom with top quality appliances, which we would have not expected from a country retreat. Loved also the HUGE parklands and olive groves, and the walks that were suggested to us. Soo much better than our Siena hotel and so close...

A few friends and I had planned a trip to Siena on the occasion of a wedding. Arriving to the Montechiato Estate was such a pleasant surprise. Within an extremely easy reach from Florence we all gathered in a place where time seems to have stopped centuries back. No rush here. Great food, oil and wine (produced on site!). Lovely...

In September 2013 a group of 27 of us had an amazing experience of a trip to the Monte Chiaro vineyard. Our host Alessandro Griccioli was our guide during the trip through the vineyard and surrounding estate. His passion for his wine and it's preparation was very apparent and we were very interested to hear his family history of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Montechiaro Estate is located 10 km from Siena. It lies on 160 Ha of land, 10 of which are vineyards surrounded by 2000 olive trees. On the edge of a small 17th century village centered around the Griccioli family Villa, all the farmhouses have been lovingly restored in a simple, authentic style. These houses were renovated and furnished with special care to preserve the wooden beamed ceilings and tiled floors. The views are outstanding, particularly of Siena in the distance and of the Chianti rolling hills with vineyards and olive groves.Guests enjoy use of their own private pool in the garden, while tennis, horse riding and mountain bike hire are available nearby. Home-produced organic wine and olive oil can be purchased from the Cantinetta di Monteriggioni in the Monteriggioni Castle and at the main Montechiaro estate, were Alessandro, wine producer and sommelier, will let you experience his "Montechiaro wine experience", sharing his wine and passions in a unforgettable winery tour and tasting. Available also for external clients who want to discover organic Chianti wines, extra-virgin Tuscan olive oil and other genuine local produces. ... more   less

“Our barn was surrounded by the rolling hills and we could also see Siena's lit-up towers at the distance, so would strongly recommend asking for it. On our estate tour, we passed by a very charming medieval viewpoint which we were told can accommodate guests. From the top of the new sangiovesi vineyard a third cottage stands out. They all seemed lovely!”
