Elice is a jewel set in another jewel. The kind of statement that you cannot help but find amazing. Imagine staying in a luxury, stone-built former farmhouse that is within thirty minutes (2,2km/1,3mile) walking distance of one of the prettiest and most representative of Tuscan towns: Montepulciano.
Sought out by wine lovers, Montepulciano is famous for its excellent “Nobile di Montepulciano” which is produced in a number of vineyards in the area around the old town. Elice itself is part of an estate of approx. 35 hectares, 22 of which are planted with vines. You can visit the marvellous wine cellars in contemporary architectural style and sample the wines, as well as visit the Gallery devoted to contemporary art. The wine cellar is 450 metres away and open for you to visit. A combination of architecture, art and good wine is what one would expect from a holiday in Italy.
Elice's central position renders it quite special: located at 16,7km/10miles from Pienza, 25km/15miles from San Quirico d’Orcia, you can easily explore some of the most famous sites of Val d’Orcia, one of the loveliest areas of Tuscany.
The authentic beauty of the former farmhouse is evident in the large windows which characterize the living room, kitchen and bedrooms.
They all face the most panoramic side of the house and allow for lovely views of hills and vineyards, presenting a magical landscape.
Each room in the house is furnished luxuriously: the kitchen, in traditional style, is comfortable, spacious and very functional. The living area facing the valley is equipped with finest furnishings.
Also, all of the bedrooms feature air conditioning and en suite bathrooms.
The kitchen opens up onto the garden and the outdoor dining area with BBQ, from this area you have easy access to the area below where the pool and the pool house are located.

"We had an overall very good experience in both villas and with your organisation:
- Very nice house, stunning views, very well maintained, clean, concierge was very pro-active and helpful
- Only minus was that the house is north oriented, which we did not fully appreciate, so you can't see sunset
The support from your company was overall positive during booking and also in terms of follow up just before arrival and shortly after arrival"
