Description from the manager
The captivating magic of Tuscan hill towns is at its best at Montecastelli, a wonderfully evocative, cone shaped village crowning a steep hill in beautiful, unspoiled countryside. It has a bar/shop and a pizzeria. Medieval village houses line narrow, often stepped streets, opening onto panoramic views. A Romanesque church with a beautifully proportioned marble font, and a crumbling defence tower testify to its long history. The local population is genuinely friendly, and there always seem to be a few children around chatting and playing. A country restaurant is nearby, as are Etruscan tombs. Accommodation

What Past Guests Are Saying
Wonderful village setting
This is one of the best houses we have stayed in Italy. Such an unusual property and very comfortable. Well equipped and very roomy. Lovely terrace and great pool. Nice to be able to have little boy in pool at any time of day without any suncream worries. Quite well positioned for touring about the area. The village is beautiful but it lacks amenities which would make it perfect.
Lovely setting, holiday full of frustrations!
There were errors in the directions (will specify if you like). Nobody was there to greet us on the evening or in fact at any point during our stay. Property itself lovely but we were frustrated by details of the conversion, eg the absurd floor lighting: it was hard to find the appropriate switches and almost impossible to find a light to read by in the evenings. When we arrived the strip lights above the table were not in place but in a dusty corner, we could not locate any lights to cook by and after a couple of days the toilet in the master bathroom was leaking water - over 2 gallons a day which we dealt with by rigging up plastic bottles and bowls. We rang all the contact numbers we had, in the village, in the area and in London. Got no reply for over 24 hours, and when we did speak to the representatives they were unable to assist us on the phone and did not ring us back as promised. The plumber did not come until our last full day. This was all a great shame as everything else was lovely: the garden, location, swimming pool, terrace, bedrooms.

An excellent, relaxing getaway from it all holiday
We thought the location fantastic with loads to do. It wouldn't suit everyone as it's quite a distance from any of the major sites, so a good amount od driving but the advantage is that it's not too far from any of them (1-1.5 hours max). We did day trips to Volterra, San Gimigano, Siena, Florence, Massa Maritima and Cecina over a two week period. Restaurants also a good drive away, so we cooked in the great kitchen on many evenings.
AN EXTREMELY HAPPY HOLIDAY
THE HOUSE AND GROUNDS WERE ALL WE COULD HAVE WISHED FOR, WELL APPOINTED AND VERY CLEAN.EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY AND A RELAXING BREAK WAS PROVIDED. THE ONLY SLIGHT PROBLEM WAS THE WATER LEAK IN THE NON EN-SUITE BATHROOM WHICH MEANT IT WAS OUT OF ACTION FOR SEVERAL DAYS UNTIL THE PLUMBER COULD GET THE NECESSARY PART AND MAKE THE REPAIR.
THE STAFF AT INVITATION TO TUSCANY WERE A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH DURING THE BOOKING AND STAY AT THE HOUSE.

What an amazing Villa - perfect in every way. Beautiful little Village and very tranqual.
Villa is stunning decorated.
A special place
We had a wonderful, memorable time in Il Tasso,. We felt like we were staying
in a castle! We could not get internet connection and though it was frustrating
while there, looking back it was fine. The location gave us access to so much
of beautiful tuscany and enabled us to always go back "home". I recommend
this vacation home.
