Located on one of our favorite vacation rental properties in Tuscany, the Coppia is a smartly designed studio apartment with good light and pretty country views. Furnished with exceptionally distinguished taste, tender loving care and plenty of Tuscan antiques, the Coppia combines everything in 1 large but cozy room. It offers a regular double bed, dining and sitting areas, a bathroom with shower, and a small, separate kitchenette that can be closed off when not in use. The apartment shares an attractive, large common entry room with fireplace with the “Famiglia” apartment that expands its living area. The room has a locked front door for complete privacy.

The apartment is located in a vineyard near Montalcino, an easy drive to Siena, the Chianti Valley and many Tuscan hill towns beyond. Your host, Anna, is a retired teacher who speaks good English. She and her family are very friendly. Wine is available for guest purchase, including the family’s own Brunello. The property is a perennial favorite! Other vacation rental apartments on the farm include the Famiglia, the Ada Teresa and the Pergola.

This apartment may be combined with Famiglia, when available, for a group of five who wish to have 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths.

Montalcino, Italy - Tuscany, Home of Coppia

Montalcino is a beautiful hill town, sporadically populated in Etruscan times and permanently settled around 1000 AD. The town was important in medieval times and its thirteenth-century walls are still largely intact. Today Montalcino is known for the Brunello wine made in its surrounding farmlands. Its center is pedestrian-friendly and walkable. Its narrow streets are lined with shops, good restaurants, lively cafés and wine bars. It hosts an open-air market on Fridays and offers a museum of sacred art. Visitors to the town’s fourteenth-century fortress can climb its tower for a spectacular view of the countryside or sample local wines in its basement cantina. The town offers banks, ATMs, coffee bars, a grocery store and a good bakery.

Staying in the countryside outside Montalcino puts you in the heart of the Tuscan wine belt, in the shadow of countless wineries and an easy drive to Chianti country. Traditional farm life continues in Montalcino and the many beautiful hill towns that surround it. Here, artisans sell pottery, small restaurants create traditional Tuscan meals, and old parish churches hide stunning frescoes.

Montalcino is about 40 minutes south of Siena and an 90 minutes south of Florence.
Other day trips from Untours’ Tuscany vacation rental apartments include the historic hill towns of San Gimignano, Pienza, Montepulciano, and San Galgano; the Etruscan sites of Volterra, Chiusi, and Cortona; the natural beauty of Mt. Amiata and the coast; and the monasteries of Monte Oliveto and Sant’Antimo.
