In the magnificent atmosphere of the hills surrounding the ancient town of Montepulciano, famous for its history, art, architecture and the Nobile wine, lays this small hamlet made of country houses built in bricks and local stones. Its origin dates back to the end of the XVIII century when it was a monastery.
From its hillside position Borgo dei Sette Tigli enjoys wide open views over the valley and surrounding hills covered with vineyards and olive groves extending to the nearby hilltop villages.
The 6 apartments have been restored to the highest standards preserving all the essential elements of traditional Tuscan architecture such as terracotta-tiled/wood-beamed ceilings terracotta-tiled floors and staircases, natural wood shutters for the windows and doors, internal brick archways and colour-washed walls in delicate pastel shades.
Graceful and comfortable furnishings have been chosen to complement this harmonious surrounding perfectly integrated with all the necessary modern-day fittings and appliances including TV Sat and WI-FI internet connection.
This little group of properties is set in magnificent, spacious, park-like grounds where many apartments have their own private garden space or terrace equipped to eat al fresco.
All apartments are provided with central heating, fully equipped kitchens, satellite TV, mosquito screens, washing machine and dishwasher. Many of them also have air conditioning and a barbecue is available in a common area. The caretakers live on site and will be happy to be of assistance in case to need.
