Originally the village hay barn, Il Fienile is now a carefully restored, detached two storey house offering a wonderful rural retreat for a family of four. Surrounded by a well planted garden and a choice of outdoor dining terraces; the house takes advantage of it’s sunny south facing position at the bottom of the village overlooking the village chapel. Panoramic views of the wooded hillsides dotted with ancient farm buildings  add to the appeal.
The front terrace is shaded by a roofed pergola and is furnished with outdoor dining furniture, making this an inviting place to dine or relax at any time of the day. The surrounding garden is fenced and planted with lawn, mediterranean shrubs and small trees.
The house is entered through double doors into the open plan living and dining room. This room is charmingly furnished with a traditional wooden dining table and chairs in the centre. A period dresser, open fireplace and many original features such as the central brick archway and the tall windows with tiles placed at angles to allow for natural breezes to enter the building add to Tuscan the country atmosphere.
The comfortable living area has a double sofa, TV SAT, DVD player and CD/radio. There are also a variety of local guide books (in English) to help you plan your Holiday.
The fully fitted kitchen is off the lounge and has painted units with tiled work surfaces. It includes a large capacity, freestanding fridge-freezer, gas hobs, electric oven and a dishwasher. A door next to the kitchen leads out to a second garden terrace furnished with garden furniture, barbecue and a parasol.There is also a travertine-tiled bathroom with shower on the ground floor.

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 Dass wir ein ganzes Haus mit Garten für uns hatten. Die Einrichtung war sehr ansprechend. Die Lage ist hervorragend, wenn man Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit sucht
Cons Das einzige Problem ist, dass man weite Wege in Kauf nehmen muss, wenn man frische Lebensmittel benötigt. Da wir das aber wussten, habe wir uns bei der Anreise in Mercatale beim Supermarkt eingedeckt.
Local attractions Restaurant in Volpaia, Die Städte Siena und Cortona, eine Fahrt durchs Chianti nach San Gimignano, Tour über die Orte Montepulciano, Pienza und Montalcino

Pros It is in a beautiful location, isolated and far from the madding crowds. The Chianti Hills are glorious, with a wide range of wild flowers and wild life. The outside space was well used in the morning and the evening.
The new TV was better than the one that was there before.
Cons Some of the furnishings and kitchen equipment could do with updating (sofa, fridge and dishwasher); a few more decent sized wine glasses would have been nice ;-)
Local attractions Castello di Meleto - tour and wine tasting; Castello di Brolio - the Osteria and wine tasting; driving around the Chianti Hills and visiting the towns of Gaiole, Radda & Castellina; Volpaia - for wine tasting and the Osteria (very nice food and great service); Siena - the Duomo and Baptistry are magnificent; further afield Montalcino - the Brunello and the tagliere (selection of meats & cheese) at the Enoteca Fortezza and the beautiful and peaceful Abbazia Monte Oliveto (including the drive through The Crete).

The dishwasher was repaired as soon as mentioned to the owner. The fridge is working but is missing a shelf which the owner has replaced along with new wine glasses.

Pros Die Ruhe, der tolle Pool, die gut ausgestattete Küche
Cons Die schlechte, unübersichtliche Wegstrecke für unseren Motorrad-Anhänger. Wir haben die Motorräder dann beim nächten Weingut abgestellt.
Local attractions Die großen Städte sind sehr sehenswert aber total überlaufen. Wir haben unterwegs nur Kleinigkeiten gegessen, weil wir den Grill sehr genutzt haben. Das wetter war so schön, sodaß wir nur draußen gegessen haben

Pros le site magnifique. la maison belle demeure toscane.
très bien équipée.
Accueil très bon. merci à véronica
Cons malgré les ventilateurs, les chambres restent trop chaudes la nuit. fenêtres ouvertes les moustiques rentrent. moustiquaires mal posées.
Local attractions je recommande hors mis firenze (musée san marco, galerie pallatine,galerie della académia pour la statue de david !!) et sienne (la place du palio ), les visites campagnes toscane : volpaia, pieve di san leolino, azienda agricola san donatino (maison de léo ferré), arezzo, abbaye de san'antimo. Pise pour sa basilique et ses fonds baptismaux; voir la tour mais n'y monter pas (trop cher). Lucca. Le parc natuel de san miguele. Pas assez de place. la toscane c'est sublime.
