Hi - I wish I could say that your could take a bus here, but we're 10 km outside Montalcino, so a rental car is really what you need. I think you can rent a car in Buonconvento - our nearest train station, and a 1.2 hour drive to our place. Feel free to write me for more information. Looking forward to your visit, Candace Máté
