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 Schöne Lage, nettes Ambiente, Aussicht auf Weinberg; weg vom Touristen-Trubel.
Cons Mieterin/Eigentümerin in der Wohnung ober uns (1. Stock) ist ab 7:45 morgens mit Holz- oder Stöckelschuhen durch ihre Wohnung gelaufen und hat uns aufgeweckt. D.h. weiterzuempfehlen an Leute, die im Urlaub um 7:45 aufstehen wollen. Die Agentur hat sie per Mail kontaktiert, aber das morgendliche Laufen hat sich nicht verändert.

Pros Die Lage ist einzigartig, wenn man gerne fernab von allem Trubel entspannen möchte. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön eingerichtet, den Kindern hat der sehr nahegelegene Pool gut gefallen. Ich habe die tolle Aussicht auf der kleinen, sehr privaten Terasse genossen :-)
Die Betreuung durch to.toskana.de sowohl während der Planung, als auch vor Ort, war toll und ließ nichts zu wünschen übrig.
Toll war auch der Internetpoint- so konnte man bei Bedarf über WLAN doch mal Kontakt mit der Aussenwelt aufnehmen. Auch das dort aufgestellte, kostenfreie Telefon, ist prima (und sehr beruhigend), falls es Fragen oder Probleme gibt.
Cons Die Anfahrt ist recht beschwerlich. Weniger wegen der angekündigten 'Schotterpiste', die war nur kurz und gut zu befahren, für uns war das letzte Stück, einspurig, unübersichtlich, mit der 25% Steigung (darunter konnte ich mir vorher nicht so recht etwas vorstellen...) sehr abenteuerlich und hielt uns davon ab, öfter als notwendig Montefienali zu verlassen... Ausflüge wie eigentlich geplant, nach Florenz, Arezzo usw. entfielen, da uns allen nach der überhaupt sehr kurvenreichen Anfahrt regelmäßig übel wurde... Das ist allerdings Typsache und war letztendlich für uns auch nicht so schlimm, weil wir die Zeit einfach zum Erholen genutzt haben. Als Ausgangspunkt, um die Toskana zu besichtigen, ist Montefienali meiner Meinung nach nicht ganz der richtige Ort...
Local attractions Restaurant: Castelnouvo, Pier 21 oder so?, direkt an der Durchfahrtstraße, sehr lecker!

Pros Le site est magnifique, la vue depuis la terrasse est tres sympa, le hameau a beaucoup de charme. Les enfants ont beaucoup apprécié la piscine. L'équipe sur place (Véronica) est très sympathique et serviable elle a répondu a une grande partie de nos demandes
Cons L'équipement de la maison est très décevant : pas de chaises longues, un tout petit parasol (sale de surcroit) qui rend la terrasse inutilisable le midi, pas d'éclairage extérieur, une vaisselle ultra cheap et insuffisante (1 mug pour 4 pers, pas de plat de service,etc) aucun adaptateur pour les prises électriques, pas de rangement (armoire penderie avec 3 porte-manteaux !) mur moisi dans la douche, murs abimés dans les chambres

Pros La Terrazza heeft een heel mooi uitzicht vanaf het terras. Mooie badkamers. Ruim. Complete keukenuitrusting. Ligt kort bij zwembad. Geen gesleep met koffers; auto kan tot bijna aan het huisje rijden.
Cons Beetje vochtig, waarschijnlijk daar de week voor ons La Terrazza niet verhuurd was. Als je van autorijden houd is dit een super locatie. Het ligt idd ver van alles af.
Local attractions Rij naar Radda, hier vind je een aantal restaurants, het is een leuk dorp. Zeker bezoeken. En er is een supermarkt(je). 10km verder is 35 min autorijden. Sienna zeker bezoeken. San Gimignano het dorp met de torens; dito.

Pros Die ruhige Lage, die Lavendel- und Rosmarinbüsche, der Pool, das Haus, Terrasse, der schöne Blick. Die beiden Ziegen und das Schaf. Die Katze, die eine Woche bei uns gewohnt hat.
Cons Das Wetter war zu kalt, so konnten wir den schönen Pool leider nicht nutzen. Die Bettdecken waren für diese Witterung auch nicht ausreichend. Außerdem hatten wir bei Ankunft viele Ameisen in der Küche, die erst durch Aufstellen von Ameisenköderboxen (die wir uns selbst gekauft haben) verschwunden sind.
