Villa Monticiano is a small hamlet of three adjoining buildings, in which the bedrooms are located, many of them opening off cosy seating areas: here guests can sit on comfortable sofas by the fireplace to read, listen to music or sip a good Tuscan wine.
Refined in their simplicity, all the spaces combine tradition and luxury: flat-screen TV with satellite links, fast internet connection, linen of local manufacture, toiletries made from olive oil, private bathroom with shower and/or tub, hairdryer, under floor heating supplied with hot water from a biomas-fuelled boiler and solar photovoltaic and thermal panels, as well as a "cellar-effect" cooling system, again located under the floor (on request). Air conditioning is also available on request and at an extra charge.
From this privileged position it is possible to probe the sky with the superb technology of a professional observatory: a Meade LX 200 R14'' f/10 telescope with GPS; CCD camera for deep-sky shots of the planets and moon with direct link to a maxi-screen; fibre optic network connected with the conference hall; meeting room with a capacity of twenty-five and fast internet connection. A unique feature of this place, the observatory has been selected by the U.A.I. (Italian Union of Amateur Astronomers). Please note the astronomer must be arranged in advance.
