I asked Valentina D. a travel blogger with "Too Much Tuscany" if she would visit this property during the Siena Palio. The photos are beautiful, but she did say that the property is located a small distance from the village of Siena. She took alot of great photos of the property. Judge for yourself.

The rooms are simply furnished but cozy.
In the general area of the Castle one can find access to Italian language lessons consisting of a short practical lesson in basic Italian that can be arranged for English-speaking visitors.
It is also possible to take a cooking class where hands-on cooking classes can be organized at Montalto for 2 to 12 participants, preparing a typical Tuscan meal and enjoying it together at the end of the lesson. The price for cooking lessons will vary according to the number of participants.

On the border of the property there is an excellent riding school and equestrian center where you can take lessons and guided horseback tours (they also have a summer camp for children in June).
For those interested in hot springs, at 12 km from Montalto there are thermal pools and spa services, particularly nice in the cooler season and at night, for which we have discounted tickets available.
The region around Montalto is incredibly rich, particularly in art, architecture and history. A large part of the masterpieces of Italian art can be found in Tuscany - not only in the major museums, such as the Uffizi in Florence, the Pinacoteca Nazionale in Siena, the Etruscan museum in Chiusi, all of which are within easy reach, but also in the churches, palaces and squares of every town and village and the castles and simple centuries-old farm houses that dot the countryside. You will not tire of exploring back roads, and each excursion will bring some new discovery, even if you come back year after year. There is always something else to see!

The 13th century city hall of Siena is considered one of the most beautiful in Europe, as is the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo upon which it fronts. The Cathedral has a magnificent inlaid marble floor, with stories from the bible and classical mythology, a pulpit by Giovanni Pisano, a statue by Donatello and a chcoir-book library beautifully frescoed by Pinturicchio. The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, beside it, holds the altarpiece so beloved by the populace when it was painted by Duccio di Buoninsegna in the 14th century that the whole town carried it in procession to the cathedral. The former hospital on the other side of street, now a museum, grew bit by bit from the 11th century on. It is here that St. Catherine of Siena nursed lepers and victims of the Black Plague.

Some of the interesting towns that surround Montalto are Montalcino, home of Brunello wine, in whose castle the Sienese government took refuge after the Florentines conquered Siena in the 16th century; Pienza, the town designed in Renaissance style by Pope Pius II, with the houses on its square artfully proportioned to make the space seem larger; Montepulciano with its steep medieval alleys; Monteriggioni with its crowning circle of walls; San Gimignano which has kept intact many of its tall medieval towers; Arezzo which houses fine frescoes by Piero della Francesca; Cortona, beloved by Francis Mayes who celebrated its life in her books, and many others, too numerous to mention. Even the smallest villages hide treasures you won't find in guide books, waiting for you to discover.
the church in Badia a Ruoti, for example, just around the corner from Montalto, has a dazzling 14th-century altarpiece, and in Pogi near Bucine there is a medieval bridge on Roman foundations that is still in use today, identified only by its single high arch and ancient stones.

The Chianti district is one of Italy's prime wine regions, and there are many opportunities to tour the wineries and sample their products. Olive groves are also the region's pride, and while it is not normally possible to visit an oil press, olive oil can be purchased directly from the producers. Olives are pressed in November and December and the olio nuovo or new oil, which is very piquant for the first several months, is especially prized on bruschetta and ribollita.
