Location: Montefiorile

Montefiorile is a small hamlet of 14 villas situated in a tranquil position in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine producing area. The hamlet is on a hillside and the houses enjoy stunning views over the vineyards and olive groves and across wooded hillsides as far as Monte Amiata on the distant horizon.Constructed in recent years, alongside the neighbouring village of Montebuoni, using local stone and materials, it retains the atmosphere of a Tuscan hilltop village with the advantage of features such as larger than usual windows and doors which allow light and air to enter into the properties.
The swimming pool sits in a high point behind the hamlet and is surrounded by terraced lawns which enjoy full sun all day. There is a covered parking area at the bottom of the hamlet and the houses are reached by gently winding gravel paths and stone steps flanked by aromatic shrubs and herbs, whilst native oak trees provide welcome shade. The open piazza in the centre can be enjoyed by all residents and is flanked by one hundred year old olive trees. This is a great vantage point to appreciate the views by day or for a stroll under the star filled skies at night. Montefiorile is an ideal base for exploring the local villages, the castles of Brolio or Meleto and enjoying winetasting in one of the areas vineyards.

Pros Firstly the experience of booking through To-Tuscany was exceptional - professional from the start and with a personal touch when we required specific assistance with our booking. Will definitely booking again when back in Tuscany.
The Grifone is a perfect villa for couples in terms of size, excellent views across the vineyards from the balcony which gets the sun most of the day and there's also a lower front garden and one to the rear if you wanted to dine in shade. The villa is located very close to the resort pool which is very nice and kept spotlessly clean - a real benefit of staying here.
Excellent location for exploring Tuscany - around an hour from Florence and Sienna and completely surrounded by Tuscan hills, vineyards and small towns. Car is a must! Perfect.
Cons Whilst well equipped and with a gas hob, Grifone would benefit from an oven or ideally BBQ to cook outside on.
Local attractions Where to start!? definitely recommend hiring a car to really explore the place. Florence, Sienna and even Pisa are within driving distance and there are loads of lovely little towns and borgos dotted around - most with authentic restaurants. Radda, probably the closest town has a few good restaurants, deli's and shops worth popping into. Recommend taking the wine tasting tour organised from Montefiorile whilst staying there.

Pros The property and its surroundings were absolutely beautiful and exactly as described. The bread and brioche delivered in the morning were delicious.
Cons If we wanted to eat out in the evening we had to drive which meant one of us couldn't drink.
Local attractions We loved the food and the service at the restaurant in Lecchi and also at The Rana.

Pros le calme. l'endroit splendide au milieu des vignes et oliviers.
les bâtiments et décoration intérieure à l'image des fermes toscanes.
la piscine pour se rafraichir.
le wine tour : excellente prestation
Cons les moustiques qui attaquent jour et nuit :-(. un lave linge aurait été apprécié. et les portes qui ne peuvent s'ouvrir de l'extérieur, donc si clé oubliée à l'intérieur, il faut appeler l'un des responsables, qui se déplace assez rapidement et vient nous ouvrir avec gentillesse même après 21h.
Local attractions le restaurant ou magasin le plus proche n'est accessible qu'en voiture. Radda est un village charmant mais il y a tant d'édifices à découvrir, de bonnes tables, etc. La voiture est indispensable. Nous n'avons pas osé faire du scooter car les routes sont relativement étroites.

Pros Het huisje zag er gezellig uit. De inrichting was ietwat gedateerd, maar in leuke Italiaanse stijl. In de keuken waren voldoende pannen en andere zaken aanwezig, zoals een vaatwassen, broodrooster, magnetron en een vierpits gasfornuis. Zowel boven als beneden was een buitenzitje.
Cons Het park ligt nogal afgelegen. Er is geen plaatsje op loopafstand. Je hebt dus altijd de auto nodig om weg te gaan. Verder was het onderhoud van het park matig. In het begin van de week was het zwembad schoon, maar door de week komt niemand het schoonmaken. Aan het eind van de week was het dus ook minder schoon. Verder hadden de planten nodig wat snoeiwerk nodig. Wij konden nauwelijks met onze tassen langs het haagje om bij de voordeur van ons huisje te komen.
Local attractions Pizzeria Pie in Rhadda is een leuke en goedkope pizzeria waar je met twee personen een mega-pizza kunt eten. Leuk om een keer te doen. Siena is op ongeveer drie kwartier rijden en zeker een bezoekje waard. Andere bekende Toscaanse steden liggen verder weg.

Pros The cottage is perfect for a small group. Amazing views from the bedroom and balcony and in a perfect position, near to the pool and steps to car park
Cons Would have liked a grill or oven as limited what we cooked and as we stayed in at night it would have been nice. Dishwasher was not very efficient and didn't clean very well.
Local attractions Rada, Sienna of course especially as we stayed when the Palio was on. San Gimigano with it's beautiful buildings and quaint shops and Castellina.
