Bella Vista is situated on the western side of the historic village of Montefienali and enjoys glorious views from the sunny, private terrace. With two large bedrooms and bathrooms on two levels, this house offers versatile accommodation for families or groups of friends travelling together. It is furnished and decorated with many personal touches that enhance the traditional interior of wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors.
The house is reached down a gravel path that leads to the pergola-covered terrace.  Here the Tuscan oak front door opens into the living, dining and kitchen area. A second door with French windows allows light and breezes to enter. The living space is furnished with a comfortable double divan, two matching armchairs and a coffee table. A TV Sat and CD player are provided.
The sleek modern kitchen at the far end of the room is fully fitted. Modern white units house 4 gas hobs, a microwave, under-counter fridge with freezer compartment, and a dishwasher. Please note there is no conventional oven. A wooden dining table and chairs make up the dining area.
Three stone steps lead from the kitchen up to a small hallway, off which is a bathroom and a bedroom. This large bedroom has a wrought iron framed double bed and a single bed that can also be set up as a sofa if not required as a bed. There is a built in wardrobe and bedside tables with reading lamps. The adjacent bathroom has a shower and is finished in travertine tiles.
The upstairs bedroom and bathroom are reached up stone steps. This spacious bedroom has a double bed with bedside tables and reading lamps; also a large wooden wardrobe and dressing table with mirror. Far reaching sunset views over the wooded valley can be enjoyed from the bedroom window. The bathroom is finished in travertine tiles and has a shower.
Outdoors the proximity to the natural landscape can be enjoyed. Bathed in sun for most of the day, the raised terrace seems suspended above the trees. Seated at the outdoor table and chairs under the shade of the pergola, or preparing an evening meal at the barbecue provided, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind whilst enjoying a glass of local wine as the sun sets behind the hillside at the end of the day.

Location: Montefienali

One of Italy's national monuments Montefienali emerged in the middle of the 13th Century as a remote staging post on an ancient Roman road into the Chianti. After a two-year restoration project Montefienali is once more the ideal place for rest and recuperation for both body and mind and an ideal get away from it all.

Montefienali high point is the perfect place for its twin swimming pools. There is a 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs pool and a small children’s swimming pool 1 mtr deep - pools are open from April to October. Sun beds and umbrellas furnish the surrounding garden and terraces to provide a great place for basking in the sun while taking in the stunning vista of the hamlet and hilltop villages beyond.
A selection of accommodation of individual cottages in an isolated location with terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and traditional-style furniture, creating an appealingly traditional ambience that offers a private terrace/garden to enjoy the Tuscan hills while sun bathing or dining outdoors.
Every Sunday during July and August there is music and dancing at Monteluco, which is 4km away from Montefienali.


Note about the approach road: Approximately 2 km of wide, well maintained,  unpaved road of no particular difficulty followed by a final kilometre of narrow paved road with 100 mtrs of steep slope at 25% . Proceed with caution in case of oncoming traffic.



Pool Info

Bathed in sunshine for most of the day, the swimming pool is in a secluded position at the top of the village. Surrounded by terraced lawns and screened by trees it enjoys wonderful, uninterrupted views of the surrounding hillsides. It is a pleasure to take the short uphill path through the trees in order to reach this tranquil spot. Picnic tables and benches under a covered terrace above the pools add to the enjoyment.
The main pool is 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs and 1.5 mtrs deep. The children’s pool has a depth of 1mtrs. There are plenty of sun-loungers with head shades, making this a great place to soak up the sun and enjoy the magnificent natural surroundings of Montefienali.

Pros Erg mooi en ruim appartement, gezellig, huiselijk en persoonlijk ingericht, niet fantasieloos als een standaard vakantiepark-huis. Ideaal voor stel met kinderen: een tweepersoons kamer boven met eigen badkamer en een 3 persoons kamer beneden, wederom met eigen badkamer. Prima woonkamer om spelletjes te doen om rond middaguur even uit de zon te blijven. Lekker eigen terrasje voor. Goed zwembad erbij op 100m afstand - dus geen geluidsoverlast! - voor gezamenlijk gebruik met andere gasten, met ligbedden op zon en schaduwplekken. Goed verblijf om boodschappen in te slaan voor een week en nergens heen te hoeven, alleen daar is de koelkast dan weer te klein voor.. In omgeving zelfs wilde dieren gezien: dassen, vossen, everzwijnen!
Cons Terrein ligt in middle of nowhere. Je moet geen rijangst hebben, toegangsweg (300m) is steil en maar breed genoeg voor 1 auto. Supermarkt op enige afstand (20 minuten met de auto, en haarspeldbochten om er te komen) en diezelfde afstand voor je in een dorpje was om te borrelen of te dineren. Meerdere wijntjes drinken kun je dus beter in het eigen huisje doen. Om naar Siena of Florence te gaan nam ook meer tijd in beslag dan vooraf gepland. Tevens veel dorstige wespen bij het zwembad, maar alleen bij het trappetje vanwege de plassen. Uit ervaring bleek wel dat deze steken minder resultaat hadden dan gebruikelijk: de steek was pijnlijk maar het werd geen dikke, jeukende, pijnlijke rode bult. Andere wespsoort? Ook bij het huisje kwam er veel wespen op de cola af en op de heerlijke gedroogde/gerookte ham. Gewoon voorzichtig zijn: eten weg, wespen weer weg.
Local attractions Er is niet veel in de directe buurt van Montefienali, behalve de Tv-toren (2 km afstand). Hier zit een soort primitief slagerijtje en cafeetje met terrasje bij met plastic stoeltjes, waar je je in het Italiaans verstaanbaar moet maken en een paar heerlijke, simpele Italiaanse maaltijden kunt nuttigen. Vooral alle soorten vleesjes waren heerlijk! Ook hier wederom veel wespen die op het vlees af kwamen en dus vanwege de kinderen toch niet lang gebleven.

Pros Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le cadre magnifique , certes éloigné du village le plus proche mais très joliment rénové. Notre meublé ressemblait presque à une maison de famille ! Les plantations autour de chaque habitat étaient variées et soignées.
L'aménagement de la piscine est bien conçu , légèrement en retrait des habitations pour préserver la tranquillité de chacun avec en plus la possibilité de profiter de belles chaises longues !
Cons L'accès peut paraître assez surprenant même si nous étions prévenus de la qualité du chemin d'accès et de la pente impressionnante à emprunter avant l'arrivée au hameau. L'architecture a ses avantages et ses inconvénients : la proximité avec des vacanciers peu respectueux des usages (très bruyants bien après 23h00) est extrêmement désagréable ... L'aménagement des fenêtres avec moustiquaires serait vraiment apprécié .
Local attractions Pour notre premier séjour en Toscane, nous avons privilégié les visites de Sienne, Florence, Voltera, Arezzo...

Pros
Village au calme et la location correspondait bien au descriptif et photos.
Cons - Equipement de la cuisine qui n'est pas à la hauteur du reste de l’équipement de la maison. Pas de micro ondes, un four vétuste, de la vaisselle insuffisante pour 5 personnes ( 3 adultes + 2 ados). - Des voisins anglais bruyants jusque tard dans la nuit (minuit 1 heure) sous nos fenêtres avec cris et musique, qui continuaient malgré notre demande polie de faire un peu moins de bruit. Et ceçi presque tous les soirs.
Local attractions Sienne, Florence, la vallée du Chianti et ses châteaux forts.

Pros De woning ligt in een prachtig gebied op een unieke locatie (helemaal weg van de bewoonde wereld). Prachtige woning met smaakvolle inrichting, eigen terras met mogelijkheid tot bbq. Woning blijft koel door dikke muren. Fijn ook dat er zo'n goed zwembad aanwezig is.
Cons Helaas hadden we te kampen met elektriciteitsproblemen. Elke avond viel de stroom uit. Er zijn inmiddels elektriciens ingeschakeld om het probleem op te lossen. Afhandeling van klachten door de organisatie is heel goed en klantgericht. Tip: om de locatie via 'tomtom' eenvoudiger te vinden: type in dat je naar "San Gusme" wilt rijden. Dan volg je automatisch de goede weg. Tot slot: de laatste toegangsweg tot de locatie is steil en smal. Indien er een verkeerslicht aan beide zijden zou komen, dan zou dit een welkome aanvulling zijn.
Local attractions Er zit een prima restaurant in Castelnuovo, op zo'n 10 km van de locatie. Verder is het een goed uitvalsoord voor de mooiste steden, zoals Siena, San Gigminano, Firenze en Arezzo.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Ausflüge und die erhlsamen Tage am Pool ohne Stress
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? phantstischer ort - Küche und damit auch Hauptaufenthalt im Haus sehr dunkel und ungemütlich - zum Glück nur gutes Wetter und immer vorm Haus und am sehr schönen Pool
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? nicht wirklich - für manche ist die Fahrt zum Ort schon Stress - für uns als Berggewohnte eher Vergnügen
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?
