This large villa for rent is more than just a luxury retreat in Italy; it is a place completely concealed from the outside world for your exclusive vacation in Tuscany.
Drive along a short gravel road and arrive at this beautifully restored farmhouse where the view will leave you speechless. It is no secret why an internationally renowned celebrity designer has decided to transform this ancient farmhouse into a wonderful country villa featuring the latest modern comforts of a 5-star hotel. This spectacular 100-hectare property is situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside offering maximum privacy to its guests yet only a few minutes away by car or bicycle from the world-renowned medieval towns of Montepulciano and Pienza. Menta is also conveniently located within walking distance from the village of Montefollonico. This is the perfect spot to explore wineries, enjoy the authentic Italian Dolce Vita and take lovely walks through the numerous idyllic countryside trails nearby.
The area is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in Tuscany together with the Val d’Orcia: olive groves alternate with vineyards, lavender fields and chestnut forests; rows of cypress trees outline the roads or lead to the ancient villages that stand out on the top of the nearby hills.
An almost 360-degree view of this idyllic landscape can be admired from almost all the rooms of Villa Menta. The villa consists of a large main house, and the guest houses Fienile and Porcilaia; a total of three buildings around two courtyards.
The rental can accommodate a maximum of sixteen guests in twelve stunning suites, most of them feature a small outdoor area surrounded by exquisitely curated flower beds. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and wi-fi connection.
There are two kitchens, a semi-professional kitchen operated by the in-villa chef and staff, and the other for making light meals or snacks at the guests’ disposal.
A magnificent garden surrounding the property is a feast for the eyes in all seasons. There are several outdoor corners where it is possible to enjoy alfresco meals or simply unwind while listening to the chirping of the birds. A pergola covered with roses is a memorable place to dine by candlelight.
A patio located by the large infinity pool is the ideal spot to enjoy meals during the day as it is furnished with a dining table, a barbecue, a fridge as well as a kitchen counter. While another pergola, facing the pool, is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs for relaxation.
A lovely veranda located by the splendid kitchen of the main villa makes it the perfect spot for enjoying delectable aperitifs at sunset. A platform, placed in a secluded location with sweeping views over the surrounding hills, offers an unforgettable setting for meditating or practising yoga.
Both the interiors and the exteriors are furnished with the very best Italian design furniture and lighting, blending the most refined combination of colours, and using the highest quality materials.
The villa's staff is available to assist you in planning your vacation so you can experience several activities. It is possible to book in advance the best restaurants or tours at wineries in the area. Masseuses, bike companies, hot air ballooning and yoga experts can be involved too in order to make your holiday a unique and memorable one.
Villa Menta is located in a quiet and peaceful setting, yet only 20 minutes from the main Florence/Rome highway, 80.5km/50miles to Perugia International Airport in Umbria, 90 minutes from Florence International Airport and 2.5 hours from Rome International Airport. Several historic Tuscan towns filled with fabulous restaurants, museums and delightful shops are nearby.

"Menta is an absolute paradise. The villa owner and staff went above and beyond to make sure that our trip was well organized and planned to perfection. We were able to experience all of the local special activities such as truffle hunting and bike riding and hiking with guides well known to the villa owner. The villa itself was extremely well appointed. Each suite was large and beautiful with excellent amenities, even including hair straighteners! The common areas were large and comfortable and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed playing villa-supplied games and having cocktails and listening to music in the large barn loft. We had nightly bonfires and singalongs at the fire pit (using the villa-supplied guitar). We enjoyed dining al-fresco in a variety of locations at the villa. The staff at the villa were incredible. Eva the housekeeper and Marianna who worked alongside her are smart, efficient and extremely capable. Chef Francesco was beyond amazing - best food of the trip!"
