Situated in the heart of the village, Casa de’ Pecci B is a first floor apartment that enjoys wonderful views south over the rooftops of Montefienile and westward towards wooded hillsides, vineyards and olive groves. A particular delight is the private garden on the west side of the house which is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular sunsets whilst enjoying a meal al fresco accompanied by a glass of local wine. Well furnished throughout it is a perfect holiday retreat for a family of four or friends travelling together.
The old, red, Tuscan double doors are reached up stone steps from the central pathway. These lead into the open plan living, dining and kitchen area which has a high wooden beamed ceiling and traditional terracotta tiled floor. The kitchen and dining area are in a contemporary style. A sleek fitted kitchen is fully furnished with 4 gas hobs, an electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and under-counter fridge with freezer compartment. A glass topped dining table and 4 chairs are conveniently placed under a south facing window.
The lounge area is furnished in a traditional style. A large sofa and two armchairs arranged around the wood burning stove offer a comfortable place to relax indoors. Quality wooden furniture and accessories have been carefully chosen to give a feeling of welcome and well-being. In addition a large TV SAT, DVD player and CD-radio music system are provided.
The two bedrooms and bathrooms are reached up three stone steps. The first bathroom is tiled in travertine and has a shower. The washing machine is in this bathroom.

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.



There is also a wonderful shop on site which sells local produce including, milk, bread, meats, wines and many other products. Outside is a small communal garden with tables, chairs and parasols.
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 lieu calme, paisible,
Cons La terrasse non attenante à l'appartement.
Local attractions Les restaurants de Castelnuovo Berardega avec une bonne cuisine toscane et très fréquentés par les italiens, une bonne référence donc, sont à essayer. La proximité de la route du vin du Chianti est appréciable pour les amateurs de vin. Sienne est aussi une ville bien sympathique à découvrir.

Pros High quality of accommodation; beautiful surroundings and peaceful ambiance.
Local attractions Thought Radda was a very sweet little place, also Lucca. We ate at Pizza Planet in Radda which was very friendly and family oriented, with the biggest pizzas imagineable! We also drank and had nibbles at a small bar in Radda, on the corner of the main street which was excellent and very friendly.

Pros Le cadre pleine nature, havre de paix, belle région du Chianti à 30 minutes de Sienne.
Le beau travail de restauration de ce hameau, belles pierres mises en valeur, le confort, la propreté, la qualité de la literie et les détails de l'équipement de la maison qui rendent un séjour très agréable.
Cons Les deux points négatifs sont la belle terrasse dont l'accès n'est pas direct et la descente du petit chemin amenant au hameau qui réserve quelques stress si croisement de voitures tout de même assez rares
Local attractions Parco de sculptura à Pievasciata, traiteur à Gaiole, Arrezo (peintures de Piero dela Francesca, musée archéologique, resto Tre Bicchieri), Sienne (la cathédrale, sa chapelle de la vierge de voeu a une très belle énergie)...

Pros This was the perfect location for a peaceful retreat with the family. We adored the views and natural beauty surrounding the hamlet. It is well positioned for trips to market towns and Siena and Florence are within good reach for day trips. We visited some beautiful vineyards, enjoyed wonderful food and were always treated with genuine friendliness. Early mornings started with a dip in the pool and after a day out it was always lovely to be able to cool off and relax by the pool. Whilst the pool was never crowded our 14 year old made friends both with other European children both weeks. We spotted some great wildlife - even spotting 3 young wild boar in the woods!
Cons The little garden was lovely but its location meant we tended to only eat evening meals there - sometimes it would have been good to step out into the garden for breakfast; the walk around the house stopped us stepping outside the front door in PJ'S!
Local attractions The wine shop, butcher and cafe in Gaoile are all great and for a small shop for essentials, the CoOp is also fine. There are so many wonderful restaurants that it is hard to go wrong!

Pros (1) La localisation dans un bourg médiéval du 13eme magnifiquement bien restauré au coeur des collines boisées du Chianti
(2) Le confort et l'équipement de l'appartement
(3) Les animaux que nous croisions en voiture sur le chemin qui mène à Montefienali (sangliers, biches, renard,...)
Cons Le bourg est isolé et comme les routes sont très sinieuses et certaines non bitumées, il faut bien s'organiser (notamment pour les courses) pour éviter les déplacements
Local attractions Centres d'intérêt : Pienza, Montepuliciano, Volpaia, Radda Restaurant : La grotta à Cortonne et le restaurant à Strada

Pros - Ontzettend gezellig klein dorpje, prachtig gelegen en erg rustig.
- Leuk contact met andere huurders, veel gezinnen met kinderen.
- Mooi zwembad met voldoende ligbedden.
- Casa de'Pecci B is erg volledig uitgerust en luxe ingericht. Met een leuke verzameling (engelstalige) Italiaanse kookboeken en een grote verzameling DVD's.
Cons - Het terras is buitenom bereikbaar. Met een grote mand met borden en proviand goed te doen, maar toch net even wat onhandig. - Boodschappen doen kost veel tijd. Voor brood kun je het beste zelf bakken in de oven. - De afstand tot toeristische trekpleisters valt best nog tegen omdat je eerst 20 minuten de bergen uit moet. 1 tot 1,5 uur rijden naar Siena, San Gimignano en Arezzo is met kleine kinderen (3 en 7) best ver. - Geen bereik met de telefoon (hoewel dat ook een voordeel kan zijn.
Local attractions Rijden door het Toscaanse landschap, het Castello di Broliio, Radda in Chianti en op grotere afstand natuurlijk de steden Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano en Florence
