Tenuta di Monteverdi
The Tenuta di Monteverdi is a large family estate, located in the Maremma of Southern Tuscany, and set against the dramatic back drop of Monte Amiata.
Monteverdi is dominated by a late 15th Century borgo with an 18th century church dedicated to St Anthony of Padua. Bought in 1904 by the current owner’s grandfather as a hunting estate, it presently covers over 1000 hectares, with olive groves, vineyards, woodland, rivers and arable farming land. Monteverdi rose to national fame in the 1930’s, ’40’s and ’50’s when it was recognised as a ‘model’ estate winning many prizes. Under the current owner, Luca Giannuzzi Savelli, the estate continues to be a working estate, and aside from cereal crops, produces a range of other products including extra virgin olive oil, fruit and prosciutto. The estate still has a traditional feel.
Luca has renovated many of the farmhouses and cottages for long and short-term holiday rentals, providing a range of possibilities for guests, while also setting up the estate for events such as parties and weddings with the possible use of the consecrated Church, as well as yoga and cookery courses. Aside from enjoying the beauty of the estate and local activities, Monteverdi is close to Siena, Montalcino, and the coast, and within easy day-trip distance of Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Tarquinia and Perugia.
