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 We stayed at this villa the first time we ever went to Tuscany, so we knew what to expect; we were also quite looking forward to seeing how Montefienali had changed in 6 years! The villa itself hasn't changed much at all and is still in excellent condition. It's cosy and it's got a really nice "feel" to it. It was a very pleasant temperature while we were there and the shutters help keep the villa nice and cool. There are more than enough utensils in the kitchen to cook perfectly well, and while we were there there didn't seem to be many other people staying (at the end of the season) so you can easily sit outside at the top of the stairs to eat meals without being either particularly overlooked or disturbed. Montefienali itself is blissfully quiet, admittedly though with quite a chorus of wildlife from the nearby woods! All in all, it's a small but very nicely formed villa at a very reasonable rate.
Cons The first time we were there, there were what we affectionately called the "munchers" - possibly some sort of woodworm? in the beams in the bedroom. I think I'd forgotten that they're quite noisy though, and could be a little off-putting if you're not expecting them! The track on the way to the hamlet is very, very steep (though this is clearly stated several times in the details of the hamlet itself) so you need to be very on your toes when you're driving up and down it! Also perhaps feel that it's a little further away from restaurants when compared to some other villas, but it's not a real issue.
Local attractions Siena - the most amazing place! Also, whenever we're in the area, we always, always go to Casanuova di Ama for our wine and olive oil shopping before we leave. Lovely people and amazing wine and oil. They also do tastings if you've got a bit of time spare. Restaurants: La Grotta della Rana in San Sano, Il Bivacco in Colonna del Grillo, and the fabulous Antica Delizia Gelateria in Castellina!
