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 Superbe localisation quoiqu'un peu isolée (il faut compter en heure pas en kilomètres )
Location conforme à l'annonce. Vraiment à conseiller.
Région magnifique et très riche historiquement.
Nous reviendrons certainement en toscane et pourquoi pas via cette agence
Local attractions San Gusmê pour ses restaurant et évidemment Firenze, Siena, Sangiminiano, Arezzo, la route du Chianti, et plein d'autres...

Pros Die Wohnung war sehr gut ausgestattet und liebevoll eingerichtet. Von der Küche hatte man Zugang zu einer kleine Terrasse, auf der man morgens herrlich frühstücken konnte. Tagsüber waren wie viel unterwegs oder haben ein paar Stunden am Pool verbracht (übrigens mit kleinem Babybecken - 50cm tief).
Die ruhige und abgeschiedene Lage war sehr malerisch und hat uns einerseits sehr gut gefallen (die Kinder waren z.B. begeistert von all den Rehen und Wildschweinen, die wir sahen), ...
Cons ... andererseits war die holperige Serpentinenstraße nach Montefienali doch etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig und machte Montefienali nicht gerade zum idealen Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge mit dem Auto.
Local attractions Die Gelateria Menodiciotto in Montevarchi führt das beste Eis, das wir jemals gegessen haben!!!

Pros Ancien village toscan parfaitement rénové rempli de charme!
Endroit idyllique perdu dans la forêt sur les hauteurs du Chianti...
Jolie piscine!
Cons Le village est très isolé des commerces et restaurants. Il se trouve à 30 minutes (pour une dizaine de km) de la première ville avec un trajet fait de routes étroites, sinueuses comprenant certaines portions non asphaltées avec une pente de 25°... Aucune facilité sur place sauf point internet et machine à laver!

Pros La maison correspondait tout a fait aux descriptions apportees sur le site. La situation, au centre de la campagne Toscane, dans une foret de chenes etait tres agreable et nous a permis de passer de bonnes soirees a ˋla fraiche ´ sans les desagrements des grosses chaleurs.
Les 2 piscines etaient tres agreables, bien ensoleillees.
Cons 1 point a ameliorer : le reseau telephonique et le reseau internet afin que chaque habitation puisse beneficier du confort de l'internet. Neanmoins, le ´point internet ´ est en libre acces et a proximite.
Local attractions Visite de Sienne, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Monterrigionni 1.5h de route pour découvrir les plages
