Tuscany apartments in Montalcino | Riddell, tuscany luxury apartment for rent

Riddell

The apartment Riddell takes its name from Edward Riddell, an American photographer that has been coming to Montalcino for some time. He organized an exhibition of his black and white photos called "The Landscapes, the People and Architecture of Val d'Orcia and Montalcino". This apartment is completely independent and has its entrance from the village road giving you the feeling of having your own house in this picturesque corner of Tuscany.

The apartment has been restored to the highest standards with maximum care to all the details, brickworks and wooden beamed ceilings together with the best quality furnishings and furniture complete the picture.

ACCOMODATION

On the first floor there is a large open plan dining room with a sofa, fireplace, a large table and a spacious kitchen, all this underneath a beautiful wooden beamed ceiling. Behind an artistic painted door there is a double bedroom and a private bathroom with travertine bathtub. A glass staircase leads you to the ground floor where there is an lounge with a sofa bed, a toilet and another double bedroom with its private bathroom with travertine bathtub.

The apartment is equipped with satellite tv in each bedroom, hair dryer in each bathroom, free wi-fi connection. Just outside there is a gazebo with table and benches. 

GARDEN AND SWIMMING POOL

The guests at Riddell apartment have the use of the nearby garden of the residence with four small apartments of the same owner which is located in the quiet residential district in the lower part of historic Montalcino, just at the foot of the hill below the town-walls, the property grounds are enclosed by a high, mellow-stone wall. Double wrought-iron entrance gates open on to a small, gravel courtyard, shaded by a mature fig-tree, where informal outdoor parking spaces are reserved for the private use of guests only. This is an enormous asset, as the town-centre is a traffic-free, pedestrian zone, where parking is truly at a premium, especially in the summer season!

The well-tended lawns of the idyllic, sloping garden are set in raised, stone-wall beds and are dotted with a host of shady, native trees, such as mimosa, pine, fir and olive. The grass is crossed by terracotta-tiled pathways, which weave their way among olive trees and sage plants, past typically Tuscan lavender, rosemary and rose-bushes in ceramic pots. An impressive, giant agave plant stands at the far end, against the perimeter wall that encloses this secluded, internal space, where only restful birdsong punctuates the silence!

From here, as from the inviting gazebo encircled by olive trees and furnished with table and chairs, the spectacular scenic backdrop can be savoured at leisure: in one direction, uphill to the extraordinary townscape of Montalcino, silhouetted against the sky; in the other, up a series of sloping olive-grove terraces to a pretty little hilltop church nearby.

Also located in the grounds is a wood-burning pizza-oven for those special, relaxing, open-air dinners, as well as three small interconnected pools, plus adjoining raised sunterrace, accessed via some stone steps, with handrail. One of the upper-level pools is a jacuzzi, while the other spills down decoratively into the lower pool. Further steps, with railings, lead up to two outdoor showers and a small indoor Turkish Bath.

Riddell

Location: 

This elegantly distinctive apartment boast an exceptionally convenient location, which provides easy access to the historic heart of Montalcino and all its amenities in 10 minutes walking, through the medieval backstreets.

Montalcino

It was made famous by Brunello, one of the world’s best red wines. But Montalcino is also a magnificent Italian city of art which, from its hill, dominates the 3000 hectares of vineyards (1500 for Brunello) that have given it fame and wealth.

Val d'Orcia

Val d'Orcia, this fascinating oasis of nature and culture, is set among acres of olive groves, oak forests and vineyards. The river that gave its name to the valley is little more than a creek for the better part of the year. Prone to dry up in the summer heat, it becomes, come fall, an... Read more

Pienza

The year following his papal nomination, he hired the architect Bernardo Rossellino to transform his obscure village into a city. Piazza Pio II opens up in the centre of the little town and is the hub of Pienza’s urban structure. The little Renaissance square was studied to welcome the urban constructions being built at the...

Montepulciano

The history and layout of Montepulciano, nicknamed the “Pearl of the Renaissance”, derives from its strategic position. The town is located south of the province of Siena, between the Valdichiana and Val d’Orcia (at 605m), and was always coveted by Florence, Siena, Perugia and Orvieto. Today, it is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and... Read more
