Montalto Castle offers vacation villa rentals near Siena in the beautiful Chianti region of Tuscany. Villas and apartments range from 1 to 4 bedrooms, and even a wing of the castle itself is available.
Montalto is a true medieval castle located in the beautiful Chianti region of Tuscany, near Siena. We live here all year round and offer the houses of the little hamlet as vacation villa rentals.
There are two 3-bedroom villas for rent, each suitable for 6 people:'Casa del Guardia' and 'La Fattoria'.
'Casa del Guardia'
It used to be the game-keeper's ("guardia-caccia") house and is a stand-alone house within the castle walls. Built on the hillside, it's a split-level, with a few steps up to the bedrooms and a few steps down to the kitchen. It is composed by: Living room with window onto dining patio; large kitchen with fireplace and view over the valley; bedroom A with queen-size bed and private bathroom (shower over tub); Bedroom B with a queen-size bed; Bedroom C with two twin beds; second bathroom (also with shower over tub). All beds are modifiable on request. Bedroom A gives access to a private panoramic terrace.
It is a 2-bedroom semi-attached apartment with a 1-bedroom add-on suite. It is located above the reception, with access via a flight of stairs from the castle courtyard. The main part can accommodate 4 people and is composed by: living room with fireplace and kitchen/dining area; bedroom A with queen-size bed; bedroom B with twin beds and antique wash stand; bathroom with shower over tub and washing machine. The adjacent one-bedroom suite with bathroom and sitting room (but no kitchen) is available across the landing and can accommodate 2 more people in a queen bed.
The estate has a swimming pool, tennis court, bocce ball court, laundry facilities and private garden areas. Enjoy the independence of a self-catering villa with all the advantages of a concierge's assistance.
There are many activities you can do right here at Montalto. Included in every villa rental:
•Maps of the many trails through fields and woods around the castle
Our swimming pool is 6x12 meters (20x40 ft) and has a deep end. We also have a bocce court for sand bowling and a covered ping-pong table. You are welcome to play tennis on our (old) court, which has a surface of synthetic grass and sand, and if you prefer asphalt or clay there are tennis clubs in Siena that accept temporary guests.
For health and wellness, we have miles of trails and dirt roads for walking and jogging, on and around our 700-acre estate, and a small work-out bench with weights for exercising.
Right on the border of the Montalto estate is an excellent horse-back riding school and equestrian center, where lessons in English mount and jumping are available, and interesting guided tours on horse-back through the countryside are organized daily. They also have a summer camp for children in June.
We try to invite every guest for tea in the great hall. This gives you the opportunity to see the frescoed hall of arms, hear about the history of Montalto, and meet other guests that are staying with us.
We can also arrange for cooking lessons or italian language lessons upon request; contact us a few days ahead of time to book these.

Montalto Castle has long been family owned, first by the Berardenga family, then Palmieri, and finally by Giovanni and Diana Coda-Nunziante who acquired it from relatives in 1970. Since Giovanni’s death in 2014, Diana carries on with my assistance. I look after our guests’ needs and can give a wealth of information about local opportunities. Like Diana I speak English and Italian, fairly fluent French, some German and a little Spanish.
Some of you may remember me from several years ago, when I used to work as receptionist at Montalto before my two children were born. Now I am very happy to be back, as I truly love this place and enjoy meeting the interesting people who come here. Diana is happy, too!
