We are the hotel owners and tourist operators of Montaione, Tuscany
More about us
AMOT is the Montaione association of hoteliers and accommodation providers; a group comprising more than 30 local properties includings hotels, B&Bs, farmhouses, vacation rentals and villas.
AMOT's main focus is on being the first point of contact for those who wish to pass a wonderful holiday in the scenic destination of Montaione - a hillside town overlooking the river Elsa valley.
We all know that each tourist is different and each comes with his/her own expectations. That is where we come into the picture: we strive to give the local perspective. We know this land, we have lived and breathed it all our lives and we can assure each and every tourist of an authentic, worthwhile and unforgettable holiday.
AMOT's goal is to ensure you have a wonderful stay in your accommodation of choice, but also that you experience the territory like a local. We want you to be immersed in the "Tuscan lifestyle" not only by experiencing our hospitality, but by participating in the events, food and wine tours, excursions in postcard-type landscapes etc. that we organise. These experiences will give you a sense of discovery, culture and adventure.
For us you are not just "tourists", but you are our "special guests". We work hard to share with you our values, our history, our art, our culture, our heritage, our landscapes and our food/wine. It's the Montaione way of doing things differently!
Come and explore Tuscany!
Come and share our houses nestling amongst the olive trees, vineyards and cypress tree-lined avenues. Be thrilled with the view from a window, be amazed by the beauty that surrounds you, rediscover authentic traditions, ancient flavours and the joy of togetherness.
You can choose from a variety of solutions: holidays on a working farm, apartments in country houses, villas, hotels or B&Bs.
AMOT's associates open their homes and hearts to you. AMOT is not just about choosing a holiday property: we want to be your friends and we want you to look on at us as your family in Tuscany

Tuscany is tradition and it is the flavour of tradition that we would like you to discover with our cooking classes . These recipes are called "poor dishes": this means that the ingredients are simple, based on the handwritten notes of our grandmothers. They are dishes born from a need, from the seasonal raw materials available and which, over the years, have found a place that we can define as legendary among Tuscan recipes .
Come and cook as if you were at home with us!
The route begins in the town of Iano, then along "Via Costia" where you can admire the typical Tuscan landscape and the famous "calanchi". The tour continues on country roads with the various ups and downs to Castelfalfi, an ancient village characterised by an imposing castle. The road then reaches San Vivaldo and its mystical atmosphere with the "Jerusalem of Tuscany". The path continues towards the Sanctuary of Pietrina where there are the ruins of an ancient castle and a unique view of Volterra. From here the road winds back down to the starting point.
This is just one example of the interesting guided tours that we can organise to satisfy bike lovers who appreciate culture and beauty.
83 km that meander through 6 itineraries : uniquely breathtaking landscapes, unspoilt nature, but also cultural heritage with its castles, ancient villages, winding country roads, trails in the woods, Romanesque churches and ruins of ancient settlements.
This is the Tuscan countryside where you can don your runners and a backpack and just 'get lost' in extraordinary places, accompanied only by the sound of the woods and the waters of the Evola stream.
Horseback riding tours
What is the best way to visit the Tuscan landscape from a different angle? Without a doubt, it is on horseback. You can cross suggestive hills, riding from one breathtaking landscape to another, along paths that go from farm to farm, among the vineyards of Sangiovese, the "King of Tuscan grapes", from which a true Tuscan excellence is produced: the Chianti wine .
Maybe then at sunset, you can enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of this wonderful experience.
