Astrid Villa is an incredible example of 1960s architecture, nestled in Tuscany’s lush, green countryside. Cleverly converted former warehouse now offers a luxurious villa lifestyle for up to four discerning guests, just two kilometres from the small town of Montisi, near Montalcino. Located in Southern Tuscany, it’s a wonderful base for exploring the delights of this popular Italian region. You’re surrounded by gently rolling hills, cypress trees, vineyards, olive groves and several charming villages within reaching distance. The wine-producing town of Montepulciano is just over half an hour’s drive away and Siena is well worth the hour’s drive north-west, for a full day’s sightseeing.

Astrid Villa was designed and lived in by two Austrian sculptors and architects. The ‘box’ concept of the industrial design allows huge windows for admiring the beautiful scenery and for flooding this incredible villa with light. Surround yourself with fine pieces of art, sculpture, designer furniture and open-plan living, both indoors and out.

There are two bedrooms, both featuring en-suite bathrooms which boast large rain showers, and gorgeous tiling, as well as an indulgent bathtub. The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped and leads on to the spacious living and dining areas. Beyond the large glass windows, the shaded terraces around the villa invite you to step outside.

Astrid Villa sits in generous gardens, with lawns, mature trees and total privacy. Your shaded terraces feature designer furniture and effortless style, and are the perfect place for a morning coffee or pre-dinner drink. For indulgent afternoons, make your way to your private pool for lazy afternoons soaking up the Tuscan sun on a pool-side sun lounger and taking the occasional dip in the cool water. From here, you can admire the medieval ruins of Montelifrè Castle, perched on top of a nearby hill.

Serious swimmers will simply love the lap pool. It’s an incredible 20 metres long and ideal for maintaining your fitness routine, and burning off the irresistible Italian cuisine and wine. For your pool-side comfort, Astrid Villa provides a luxurious outdoor shower.

The very thought of Tuscany conjures up images of cypress trees and green hills, with olives and vines growing in warm sunshine. A holiday at Astrid Villa puts you at the heart of rural Tuscany and you will be immersed in all of the above. The views from the terraces, pool and gardens are picture-perfect and the area’s olives and regional red wine can be bought from the local shops in Montisi. This small, medieval town sits on top of a hill and provides a lively centre, which is often adorned with regional flags. Discover restaurants serving the regional pici pasta along the narrow streets, which open out to the old walls and breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside.

A trip to Tuscany isn’t complete without a wine tasting tour. Head to Montepulciano (25km), just half-an-hour’s drive from Astrid Villa, for a date with Vino Nobile; the famous red wine of Montepulciano. The wine cellars are built beneath the streets of the town, so you can wander from site to site, learning and tasting as you go.

For a full day’s sightseeing, Siena (55km) will take about an hour in the car but you can easily fill the day with exploring the medieval streets, famous Piazzo del Campo and stunning Duomo di Siena. After you’ve climbed the four hundred steps to the top of Torre del Mangia, you may need a sit down. Pull up a chair at any one of the restaurants lining the piazza, and recharge on Sienese delicacies. For a more hands-on food experience, make sure you’re here on a Wednesday to explore the morning market at La Lizza, near the old fortress. It’s the largest market in Tuscany and worth an early start to beat the crowds.

For shorter trips out from Astrid Villa the, the idyllic Tuscan town of Pienza (13km) and hot thermal springs in Bagno Vignoni (29km) are wonderful to visit.

Beyond the large gardens and superb lap pool, families can spend their time exploring the nearby villages and towns of Southern Tuscany. Your nearest medieval hilltop town is Montisi (2km) and picturesque Pienza (13km) is just a twenty-minute drive.

This is also ideal cycling territory, and bikes can be hired for exploring the beautiful countryside, along quiet, cypress tree-lined roads. Day trips can include Siena (55km) and Montepulciano (25km), and with world-famous sights, wines, cuisine and ice cream, there’s something for all ages.

Reviews

  • Stunning!

    Posted by Mark on 10/01/2023

    Astrid Villa is simply one of the coolest places we’ve ever stayed. We understand that the building was formerly an auto repair shop and then a clay pigeon factory. The renovation, done by the owners is stunning. The main living space is large and has huge floor to ceiling windows. The furnishings are very stylish and really comfortable. The kitchen is large, beautiful, fully stocked and completely functional. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is so much more beautiful in person. We arrived at night, after a long flight delay. The owners (and Minnie, their delightfully friendly dog) were waiting for us - they live next door. They had a fire going in the beautiful fireplace. They had stocked the fridge and pantry with essentials from a list we’d sent them. They had a gourmet pasta and sauce waiting in case we were hungry. A quick orientation and they left us to grab a snack and to sleep off the jet lag. We were not prepared for what we saw the next morning in daylight. The property is stunning. Looking out one set of windows, on a hilltop, are the ruins of castle. Out the other set of windows, a Tuscan hillside. The property is dotted with eclectic art installations. A few hundred feet away - an incredible and huge pool visible on satellite images of the place. We did not use it (it was December) but the owner swears she swims there every day! There are two bedrooms that are very comfortable. The place could easily and comfortably house two couples, but we were delighted to have the place to ourselves. The owners are always available to help in anyway, but are otherwise unobtrusive. You’ll have all the privacy you want. The property is on the edge of Montisi, a charming, tiny village with one of the best restaurants we’ve been to (Il Barrino). From here, incredible scenic drives and all of the key Tuscan sights are an easy drive. On the final night, the owner prepared for us a gourmet dinner right here on the property, accompanied by wine from their personal cellar. She owned a restaurant for 30 years and the meal was a beautiful way to finish our Astrid Villa experience. One of the best dinners we had in Tuscany, accompanied by the company of our gracious hosts. Honestly, we can not recommend this spot highly enough. If you want to stay in Tuscany, make this your home away from home! Grazie!
