Not far from Siena, we stayed on the Montechiaro Estate for the night and enjoyed some wine tasting and beautiful views. The family has a winery, a family church, and villas. In 1720, the family bought the local castle and village, Monteriggioni castle, where they have restaurants and a wine shop; unfortunately, we didn’t have time to venture to the castle.

We stayed in the Villa Capanna. These photos are of the villa, the views, and some of the other buildings on the estate. Siena can be seen in the distance.
