Situated in a central position on the west side of the main pathway La Chiocciola is reached up stone steps to a terracotta tiled terrace which overlooks the main village pathway. This is a  pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy the views over neighbouring rooftops towards the surrounding hills.
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area is pleasantly furnished in a country style to complement the terracotta tiled floors and the high wooden beamed ceilings.  A comfortable sofa and SAT TV and CD player in the living area is to be found on passing through the dark oak front door.
Walking through to the kitchen and dining area at the  rear of the house, where the large windows and glass doors allow views to the west to be fully enjoyed, a further outdoor space is to be found. A great spot for a barbecue as the sun sets over the distant hillside.
The fully fitted, cream painted ,kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, gas hobs, microwave and dishwasher. Please note that there is no conventional oven. The coordinating dining suite provides ample space for four people to dine in comfort.
A carpeted cast iron spiral staircase leads up to the bedrooms. The main bedroom is furnished with matching twin beds with tables and reading lamps and a large wardrobe with night safe. Please note that these beds cannot be made into a double. An en-suite bathroom with shower, WC, bidet and washbasin adds to the comfort.
The second bedroom is tastefully furnished with a wrought iron double bed and a large traditional style wardrobe. Pleasant views down into the wooded valley can be enjoyed from the bedroom window. There is a  second bathroom with shower.

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.

Stay: July 2014
Pros Peaceful, idyllic, restful, beautifully restored, designed and maintained. wonderful sense of timeless rural tradition and the modern aspect of the pool. We could not have wished for a more uplifting holiday resort to make the most of our short week. The bedrooms and especially beds were exceptionally comfortable. And the service and support was very efficient and helpful.
Thank you Dympna and Stefano
Cons A really minor point was the sofa, just a two, max three small people seater for a four person holiday rent. It didn't really matter though, as we spent most of our evenings on the veranda drinking wine! xx
Local attractions We loved San Gusme, Radda and San Gimignano and Monteriggioni a bit further afield, possibly as much as Florence and Sienna. But just driving around was a real pleasure too. The views were constantly as good as any painting or photo I have seen

Pros La restauration du village est très réussit avec tout le confort et très joli, la piscine est bien.
Cons La baie vitrée à l'arrière est exposée plein sud et n'a pas de volet ou de store alors pour ne pas avoir trop chaud nous avons dû mettre des serviettes de toilette. Il manque des verres, des assiettes et des couverts ainsi qu'un épluche légume et des plats pour aller au four, une théière. Où il faut un lave vaisselle plus petit.
Local attractions la Bottega à Vlopaia excellent avec une superbe vue et sinon tous les restaurants sont bons et pas trop cher.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

29.08.2013
The owner has checked to find there is a full compliment of dining service of six and ample glasses and crockery, plates can be used in the microwave oven and the dishwasher is standard size. He will arrange a blind for the back window for the hotter months.
