In the heart of Tuscany where you still find unspoilt nature and pure
air, where colours and tastes are still what they used to be and you can
enjoy the voice of silence, lies Montalcino, a medieval town full of history
and ancient civilization. The apartment "Le Filande" (the S[pinners)
is in the historic centre of Montalcino in a quaint, quiet street. It
is part of an old XIVth century building that has been completely restored,
bringing back its original architectonic features. Here you can relax
and enjoy the exceptional charm of this medieval town.

XIXth century it represented the link between country life and factory
