Situated at the top of the village this cosy cottage for two has a charming rustic feel with original exposed stonework and timbers that are complemented by terracotta floor tiles throughout. A delightful covered terrace provides an attractive outdoor living and dining space.
Four stone steps lead up to the oak double doors that have been restored from the original building. Stepping immediately into the dining area there is a traditional wooden table and chairs and wooden cabinet displaying the glassware and china.
The kitchen is up two steps to the right of the front door. Fully fitted, modern white units house 4 gas hobs, an under-counter fridge with freezer compartment and dishwasher. There is also a microwave.
The separate living area is comfortably furnished with a double sofa and coffee table. There is also a TV and CD player. An east-facing window captures the morning sun and a door leads out onto the terrace.
The bedroom and bathroom are off a small hallway. The bright bathroom, tiled in travertine, has a shower. The pretty bedroom receives the morning sun.  It is furnished with a double bed, large wardrobe and bedside reading tables. Unspoilt views over the eastern hillside lend a feeling of tranquillity and proximity to nature.
At Il Frantoio it is a real delight to sit outside under the covered pergola at any time of day. It is well furnished with dining table, chairs and barbecue for relaxed outdoor dining. Comfortable wicker armchairs and a coffee table invite one to unwind outdoors with a good book.

Pets are welcome and must be kept on a lead at all times when outside. There is a 50 Euro charge per week for their stay.

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 Das Apartment ist sehr freundlich und gemütlich eingerichtet, gut gepflegt, genügend Geschirr vorhanden, Elektrogeräte in Ordnung. Montefienali und die Umgebung ist wunderbar, fast zuviel Ruhe! Leider war das Wetter nicht besonders gut, sodass wir den schönen überdachten Anbau nur wenig nutzen konnten.
Cons Die Waschmaschine im Info-Point war nicht sauber. Es war absolut kein Handynetz vorhanden, auch W-LAN nicht, (funktionierte auch kaum am Info-Point). Das letzte Stück der Zufahrtsstraße ist eigentlich unzumutbar, (vor allem, was einen evtl. Feuerwehr- oder Notarzt-Einsatz beträfe).

Thank you for your feedback. The owner spoke to the property management regarding the washing machine and measures have been put in place to ensure this does not happen again. Several locations at the hamlet has good internet connection.

Pros La solitude . Le silence . La qualité de la restauration du hameau. . La confiance . La décoration . La terrasse . Le lit ....L'équipement général .
Cons Réfrigérateur à changer . Couverts IKEA un peu légers .... Accès redoutable et qui prend beaucoup de temps précieux à qui est venu visiter la Toscane et exploiter ses trésors gastronomiques et culturels en une semaine : sans que rien ne soit traduit en Français . Poussière de chemin qui bouche les filtres de la voiture (!!) Le Chianti basse gamme....
Local attractions Florence, Sienne , Volterra , SAN GIMINGNANO ,Arezzo etc...etc... ont ouvert nos appétits et nos portefeuilles....sans que rien ne soit traduit en Français !? ...et nous sommes donc restés sur notre "faim "!....Le soleil était magnifique, aussi nous avons" rayonné" : beaucoup roulé sur de petites routes étroites et cahoteuses ( pleines de Fiat Panda ...)mais toujours à travers l'incomparable campagne Toscane !!!! ( même pour un Alsacien...)

Pros le gite était parfaitement conforme au descriptif internet. La petite terrasse était charmante et le village splendide. Montefienali est en revanche un peu difficile à trouver : même à l'office de tourisme de gaiole, l'agent ne connaissait pas le village et a du regarder sur internet pour m'indiquer la direction. Le premier commerce est à au moins 20 mn de route ; il faut le savoir même si le calme du cillage vaut vraiement la peine.
Local attractions gaiole situé à 25 mn de route. L'éloignement du village a fait que nous sommes restées au gite le soir, profiter de notre terrasse.
