Villa Montariello turned out to be a most magnificent property! The building is easily 200 years old and is perched on the top of a mountain with unparalleled views in all directions! The house may not have all modern amenities such as air-conditioning, oven, microwave - But offers real Italian charm - not a generic room or house. The house does keep naturally cool (so A/C was not really missed even in July), there is a stove as well as a small kitchen, and access to a clothes washing machine. There is WiFi which was great.
Our Family of 7 slept and lived comfortably for 8 days. Would not trade the authentic experience for ANYTHING!
The Driveway is very steep (Obviously) with switchbacks and requires a driver with good hand-eye coordination and must be well versed in a car manual transmission.
Francesco and his wife reside upstairs. They were very helpful in providing directions to the grocery store, and excursions. They even brought us some food, as well as fresh fruit!
