WELCOME TO MONTALCINO AND PALAZZINA CESIRA

Montalcino is located in the center of the most beautiful and least traveled part of Tuscany. Palazzina Cesira in Montalcino is a great choice as the place to stay while touring Tuscany.
Montalcino is surrounded by a magnificent country side with ancient villages, medieval churches and Abbeys, Roman and Etruscan ruins and the famous 9th Century Abbey of S. Antimo built by Charlemagne and of course much more.

Although small (1400 inhabitants within the walls) Montalcino has over 220 wineries. It is the home of Italy’s premier wine “Brunello di Montalcino”. Montalcino is also the principal town of the "Parco Artistico e Naturale della Val D’ Orcia”.  Declared by UNESCO as a “WORLD HERITAGE SITE FOR HUMANITY’. The surrounding area of the Val D’ Orcia includes the hill towns of Pienza, San Quirico D’ Orcia, Radicofani and Castiglione D’ Orcia.

There is so much to see and do in Montalcino and its surrounding countryside, that many of our long term guests take the opportunity to use Montalcino as a base for day trips to; Siena, Florence, S. Gimignano, Volterra, Lago Trasimeno, Pitigliano, La Maremma and the Tuscan Coast. Situated at nearly 600 meters above the river valleys of the Ombrone, Orcia and Asso rivers and just 40 km from the Mediterranean Sea, Montalcino’s climate is very gentile, with warm days and cool evenings.

Palazzina Cesira is a beautiful 13th Century residence with a refined and tranquil ambience. An elegant home, located in the historic center of Montalcino. It is a place where you will experience the style and atmosphere of times gone by.

The dignity of the old world with the comforts of our Modern Era creates an inviting and relaxed environment for our guests.

Palazzina Cesira offers lovely en suite Double rooms and Mini-suites, antique furnishings, flat screen TV with satellite channels, free WiFi. A beautiful sitting room and private garden to relax in.

Our rooms are air conditioned during the summer (rarely needed) and centrally heated when its cool. A complete breakfast, Continental or American style is served in the dining room or in the garden patio. Our free off street permit parking is located nearby.

After nearly 20 years living in the most beautiful river valley in Tuscany, It is always a pleasure for us to share our knowledge of the area with our guests.  We are happy to help our guests coordinate winery tours and day trips to the nearby villages and towns and to our ancient churches and Abbeys.

While planing your trip to Tuscany. Come to the Heart of Tuscany, to Montalcino and spend a few days here and enjoy a life long experience.

Opening of the Hunt

Since the beginning of time, wild birds have made annual migrations through the region of Tuscany. Held annually on the second Sunday in August, The Tournament for the Opening of the Hunting Season is a celebration of the opening of the traditional Montalcino season for fowl. On tournament day the streets and piazza are festive with hanging banners and flying flags. The music of drums and horns fill the air. Dancers and jesters weave through the crowds. As a pageantry of Lords, Ladies and their court makes its way to the fortress to announce the opening of the hunt, the air becomes charged with celebration. Archery Tournaments, street theatre, music, dancing, artisan vendors, and generous helpings of local cuisine and wine make for a day worth celebrating.
