Contact the abode


Villa Curiano is the centre of a 400-hectare organic agricultural estate in the province of Siena. Located in the heart of the famous hills south of Siena, known as the 'Crete Senesi,' a UNESCO World Heritage cultural landscape, the Villa is 18 km from Siena and 20 km from Montalcino, which is internationally renowned for its Brunello wine. Looking out from the Villa, the breath-taking view stretches from the Torre del Mangia and the famous bell tower of Siena, as far as the hills of Montalcino with its medieval fortress.

Lovers of the Sienese landscape will be able to fully enjoy the contrasting beauty offered by nature: on one hand, the gentle undulating hills in a palette of colours ranging from dark green in spring to intense yellow in summer, and on the other, the burnished, rugged land which has such a striking and characteristic colour that it has been given its own name: burnt Siena or 'terra di Siena’. Curiano is enveloped in nature, history, art and wine, each element working in harmony to create an immersive and authentic Tuscan experience for its guests.



Villa Curiano is located in the small hamlet of Curiano, on the Via Cassia Roman road, between Monteroni d'Arbia and Buonconvento. Its ancient origins are evidenced by various notarial deeds dating back to 1079. A document from 1290 mentions the restoration of a source of water at the top of Curiano hill, to be restored with stones and bricks, a testament to Curiano's role as a as a refreshment point along the Via Francigena, the ancient route that connected central Europe to Rome in the Middle Ages. There is evidence of a 'Spedale', a hospital or resting place, located there since the mid-14th century, when the land was donated along with several fields and vineyards to a Dominican monastic community from Siena. The hospital served as a refuge that welcomed the poor, pilgrims and religious people ‘of any order' who were passing by along the route from Canterbury and through France to Rome.

Around 1650, the land was sold by the Domenican friars, with the stipulation that the ‘Spedale’ be maintained to accommodate all passing pilgrims and people in need. During the following centuries, Villa Curiano changed owners, from the Nini and Bandinelli families to the Sergardi family and finally to the Mocennis in the early 20th century. The estate was then purchased by the Collobiano family and in 1954, it was bought by the Masetti family and through inheritance, passed to the current owner, Marchesa Isabella Gaetani di Canossa.

Today, Villa Curiano is the beating heart of an organic agricultural company, extending over about 400 hectares.



Villa Curiano has recently been restored to meet the needs of its guests even better and enable them to experience all the charm of the countryside with every modern comfort. With 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, including a guest bathroom and another for use by the swimming pool, there is a large entrance hall on the ground floor and one on the first floor, together with two spacious lounges to welcome guests at the Villa, which is surrounded by a large garden and a pool. There is a lift to access the upstairs floors, air conditioning in the bedrooms, and Wi-Fi both inside and outside the residence, all guaranteeing high levels of comfort.


The gardens surround the main building and include a wooded area that is wonderfully cool and refreshing during the summer season. The grove is also a perfect place for children and contains swings and a brick playhouse. The swimming pool is ideally positioned to offer a spectacular panorama of the surrounding hills, immersing guests in an oasis of blue and green hues.
