The Montalcino residence of 'Cesira' sits in the most beautiful and the least travelled part of Tuscany. Montalcino was first mentioned in the documents dated 814 AD. Once a strategic point along the way to Rome, this beautiful city now serves as a perfect starting point for daily trips to Siena, Florence, Lago Trasimeno, Tuscan Coast, and many other beautiful places.

One of Italy's finest red wines - Brunello di Montalcino also adds fame to this town. The area attracts wine lovers with over 220 wineries around.

Montalcino area is covered with Mediterranean marshes, grasslands, and forests. Hills and valleys are full of 'Oaks of Montalcino' from the ancient times to the present day, sharing their territory with Olive trees, Chestnut trees and Montalcino's most famous plants - the Brunello grapevines, also known as Sangiovese Grosso.

The atmosphere of Montalcino city center with its narrow Medieval streets, stone buildings and pavements is truly enchanting. The village is a wonderful place to walk among the labyrinth of charming arts and crafts shops, cafes, restaurants and wine bars.

Declared a UNESCO heritage site - Val D'Orcia is a rural Tuscany at its best, retained its unspoiled beauty for centuries. A line of cypress trees standing on a hill with a small church perched neatly, the yellow fields of corn and bright sunflowers.

Built in the 12th century, The Romanesque Abbey of Sant'Antimo is a beautiful and evocative place.
