A brick archway leads through to the kitchen/dining area which has built in units along one wall with oven, gas hobs, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.  To one side is a wooden dining table with six matching chairs.  There are double doors opening onto the paved terrace which runs across the rear of the property from both the lounge and the dining area.  The furnished terrace is a great place to dine ‘al fresco’ and has fantastic views over the surrounding countryside as well as the pool area.
Stairs to the right of the lounge lead up to the first floor which has a bathroom with full size bath and hand held shower, WC, bidet and basin.  Next door is the first of the two bedrooms which has twin beds and a large wardrobe.  The second bedroom at the end of the corridor is a very spacious room with a double bed, and large wardrobe.
Outside there is a terrace which runs across the rear of the property furnished with table, chairs and a parasol and a small private garden with great views over the surrounding countryside and the pool area.

Stay: September 2013
Pros Totally stunning views and nice pool.
Cons Poorly stocked kitchen / dining facilities for self catering and little privacy in garden area. V close to road. Zero sound insulation. Extras for final clean, electricity, wifi etc are pretty steep
Local attractions Montisi is a gorgeous village
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

10.08.2014
Owner Update: The kitchen equipment is regularly checked and updated accordingly to insure guests have everything they need. Casa Marta has a small but very private garden with the edge as high as 2 metres on one side. On the other side there is a wall which gives total privacy. The house has full double glazing window and shutters and the best insulations up to date . Casa Marta has a 180 degrees panoramic view from the back garden. The front door is in the square and very far from the main road. The final clean fee is now included in the price. Wifi is charged 20 Euro per week. Electricity is cahrged by consumption.

The town boasts the only truffle museum in Italy, as well as hosting an annual truffle festival in November each year. There are also two important churches; the Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, and San Pietro in Villare. The picturesque Tuscan town of Montisi is 4kms from Ampella Hamlet.
