Montescudaio is a small village of medieval origins which at the time was of strategic military importance for its location as a garrison of the valley below.
Now it is home to some 2,000 inhabitants. It is also home to the homonymous D.O.C. since 1977 and member of the National Association of Cities of Wine, Cities of Bread and Oil and considered one of the “most beautiful villages in Italy”.
The Fontemorsi Farmhouse is a synthesis of many expressions of natural beauty that Tuscany offers. First, its location: the farmhouse was built on a hill overlooking the Cecina river valley and its rolling hills and are surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and meadows, with the city Volterra as a backdrop.
The proximity to cities of art such as Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and the proximity of the clear sea of Maremma, with its archipelago of surrounding islands, make Fontemorsi a special place in which to spend a truly restful holiday but which at the same time can offer the opportunity for the rediscovery of the history and nature of this land.
The mild very pleasant climate is always windy even on sunny summer days and cool in the evenings, this thanks to the influence of the nearby sea.
