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.

Wunderbare Lage, sehr gut geeignet für Ausflüge nach Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino etc.. Sehr schönes Haus, nur leider ließ die Sauberkeit in der Küche zu wünschen übrig. Schmutzige Pfannen und Töpfe, fettiger Küchenblock, Wasserkocher total verkalkt und sehr unappetitlich, Geschirr teilweise angeschlagen. Meiner Meinung nach gehört die Küche nach jedem Wechsel kontrolliert und bei Bedarf nachgebessert. In beiden Bädern war die Toilettenbürste total verdreckt. Beide Bürsten gehören eigentlich ausgetauscht.
