The convent of Santa Maria di Mater Ecclesiae, from which the name Matrichese derives, was located two kilometres east of the town of Montalcino, and we have news of it since the year one thousand.
TCurrently there remains a Romanesque chapel in the Italian garden of the manor house, which instead dates back to the Renaissance period. The ancient village, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, belongs to the Costanti family, which has been producing wine there since the mid-sixteenth century. The Renaissance villa and two houses, located just above the Brunello Costanti ageing cellars, are available for your holidays.
Villa Costanti, residence of the noble family since the mid – sixteenth century, is composed of: on the first floor there is a professional kitchen, living room with fireplace and study; on the second floor there are three double bedrooms and a suite opening onto a large and bright room; and the “Tower”, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Montalcino, Crete Senesi and Val d'Orcia.
TThe Villa is surrounded by a historic Italian garden with box hedges and centuries-old plants, where you can visit the Romanesque church of Colle al Matrichese with a fresco depicting a weeping Virgin dating back to the Sienese thirteenth century. .
Two apartments have been created within the complex of the village: “Sant'Antonio” and “La Terrazza”. More precisely, they are located above the ageing cellar and share a terrace overlooking one of the vineyards that have made the history of Brunello di Montalcino. Both have been restored seeking the right balance between the historicity of the structure and the most modern comforts. The furniture was designed by the well-known Florentine interior designer Massimo Tani. Inside the houses you will find many creations of Arts and Crafts.
