Il Rosmarino is a welcome retreat for two people. Situated at the top end of the village, it’s private terrace faces east towards uninterrupted views of wooded hillsides. The house is sympathetically restored so as to maintain much of the original stonework. Exposed wooden beams in the ceilings and polished travertine floors add to the traditional feel of the house.

Reached down stone steps is the private, enclosed terrace. Furnished with dining table and chairs, parasol and barbecue this is an inviting spot to relax outdoors at any time of day. It’s position means that it has the advantage of morning sun. Just a short stroll from the swimming pool it is easy to take advantage all day sunshine should you wish.

Passing through the wooden front door the lounge area is entered. Pleasantly furnished, this bright room has a large comfortable sofa and oak trunk serving as a table on which the TV and CD player are kept. Plenty of light enters from the south-facing window.
To the right of the front door is the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fully fitted with modern white units that house 4 gas hobs,an under-counter fridge with freezer section, microwave and dishwasher. There is plenty of  space in this room for a wooden table and four dining chairs. The travertine-tiled bathroom is beyond the kitchen and has a shower.

The bedroom is to the other side of the lounge. This pretty room is furnished with a double bed, double wardrobe and small sofa. The window looks over the terrace, through cypress and olive trees towards the wooded hillsides beyond.



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 Quiet rural location, girls at check in were very helpful. Kitchen well equipped, bed comfy, nice bathroom. If remote is what you want, this place is for you.
Cons Termites in the ceiling of the kitchen. Nowhere outside to sit in the sun. Road to montefienali not for the faint hearted. Have to travel quite far for closest shops etc. Insects are quite prevalent as such a heavily wooded area.
Local attractions Malborghetto cook school/restaurant is amazing.

Montefienali is a retreat in the Chianti hills. As mentioned on our website the approach road is completely paved however there is 100 mtrs of steep cement slope at 25% so care must be taken.

Pros un endroit au calme au milieu de la nature où l'on peut reposer son âme et son esprit.
Penser à amener une bonne paire de chaussures pour faires des balades autour de la maison
Cons Quand nous sommes rentré dans la maison nous avons senti une forte odeur de renfermé et d'humidité, je pense que pour certain mois le chauffage devrait être compris dans le prix de la location, et peut-être mettre un chauffage d'appoint dans la salle de bains indépendante du reste de la maison. dommage
Local attractions Personnellement, nous avons pris le guide du routard et nous n'avons pas du tout été déçus bien au contraire je vous le conseille Un accueil super-sympa des Italiens.

Pros The Hamlet felt very peaceful and was pretty. If you like to feel away from it all it is ideal. The pool area was quiet, we had it pretty much to ourselves and the sun beds were great. Il Rosmarino was as pictured, in fact it was better than I was expecting, it was clean and comfortable. The shower was powerful and there was plenty of hot water. The bed was comfortable and the internal shutters on all of the windows meant that it was pitch black which was great for catching up on sleep. BBQ was good and clean.
Cons The terrace area is in the shade from about 10am which meant in early September it was cool in the evenings, there were also a lot of mosquito's which meant we had to sit indoors or get very covered up to sit outdoors in the evening (repellent seemed to have no effect). Because of the planting there is also no view from Il Rosmarino's terrace, and the terrace can be overlooked from the apartment above (the guests in that apartment left two days after we arrived so this wasnt an issue. Il Rosmarino would benefit from an oven and microwave and there is a lack of mugs (only has 4 espresso two small and two giant mugs) and the wine glasses are uncoordinated.
Local attractions There is nothing near Montefienali

Pros The remote location, the quality of the restoration work over the whole complex, quiet and peaceful, other guests were considerate and respected the quiet location, good quality swimming pool and relaxation area, self contained accommodation with secluded outdoor dining area with barbecue all contributed to an excellent, relaxing stay.
Cons There were wood boring grubs / beetles in the beams in the kitchen which unsettled my wife! The apartment above us was empty during our stay, but when the cleaning staff were in on the Saturday morning of our departure, the noise from upstairs was very noticeable - this may have been a problem if this had been happening during our stay - minor issue I know. The narrow, steep drive down to Montefienali was a little scary at first, but one soon got accustomed to it. Otherwise we loved it!

Cons Wir haben Rosmarino nicht bekommen, da die Wohnung im Erdgeschoss las. Es hat vorher viel geregnet und die Wohnung war wohl ein wenig klamm. Die neue Wohnung war nicht klamm. Für uns war die Wohnung "vom Gefühl" zu kalt und dunkel. Außerdem war ich die Küche sehr schlecht ausgestattet. Unserer Vermieterin war sehr nett und die Wohnung war auch sehr sauber!
