Montalto Castle lies in one of the loveliest and most unspoiled parts of the Chianti area of Tuscany. It has a rich past dating back over one thousand years. Much of the castle is from medieval times, with restorations of the 16th and 19th centuries.
The apartment Loggia is located in the little hamlet of the castle. It is the entire upper floor of the San Giovanni building (which also includes San Giovanni Est and San Giovanni Ovest on the ground floor), which is the most recently remodeled house at Montalto.
Up a flight of steps you'll find: living/dining room with kitchen area and fireplace; covered open-air terrace with table and chairs; bedroom A with queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom; bedroom B with queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom; bedroom C with twin beds (covertible) and en-suite bathroom; bedroom D with twin beds and en-suite bathroom.
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.

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!
