Treat Yourself to Luxury in Tuscany
The villa rentals at Montefreddo include not only the basic amenities expected from a fully equipped vacation home but Olivia and her husband have gone the extra mile to include those special treats that make you feel right at home.

Privacy is a Priority
Each structure is securely nestled into a panoramic backdrop of silence, lush green gardens and thick rich forests. The perfume of lavender, rosemary and sage will fill the warm Tuscan air and the sight of fields of grain, groves of olive trees and miles upon miles of softly rolling hills will calm the senses. The family continues to harvest grain, olive oil and raise the prized Chianina cows as their ancestors did before them - so be sure to ask to taste their home grown products. And don’t forget to ask about having a Chef come to the villa to tantalize you with delicious local specialities so you don’t have to always cook while on holiday. Olivia and her husband are always available to assist you in planning out your itinerary or deciding how to spend the day but you will find that privacy is absolute: private villa, private garden and private pool.
