The villa is located in a green residential area, with childrens' playground, tennis court and public swimming pool nearby. Just a few steps away from the holiday home is a walking trail that leads to the abbey and horseback riding facilities, where the jockeys of the world-famous Palio di Siena train throughout the year.

From Monticiano, guests of Casa Gigliola can easily reach the most popular areas and cities in Tuscany (i.e. Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo, etc.). The village is in the Siena area, in Val di Merse. From here, the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia with Buonconvento, San Quirico d'Orcia, Montalcino and Pienza are easily reachable.
Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and the Chianti region can be visited with day trips, both via the highway E78 and the old road which offers amazing view of the countryside.
The Montagnola senese, with Sinalunga, but also the border of Tuscany and Umbria, with Cortona and Montepulciano can be reached in an hour.
Being on the border with the Upper Maremma, Massa Marittima and the metalliferous hills as well as hilltop villages such as Roccastrada, Montemassi and the northern coast of the Maremma are both easy daytrip destinations.
For nature lovers, Monticiano and the Val di Merse represent a unique experience. This is one of the best preserved and greenest areas in Tuscany, with its woods and rivers. And the natural hot springs of Petriolo and the thermal baths are only 15 minutes away.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
