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 La terrasse avec vue sur les collines,
les deux salles de bain,
la literie
la musique, les livres
la disposition des pièces (coin nuit, coin jour)
la machine à laver dans l'appartement
l'équipement (barbecue, fours, lave-vaisselle...)
la décoration tout à fait à notre goût
le calme
Cons Nous n'avons utilisé que la terrasse avec vue sur les collines car il y avait trop de moustiques de l'autre côté. Selon nous, il n'y a pas assez de couverts et de verres : nous étions obligés d'en laver à la main alors qu'il y a un lave-vaisselle. Trop de moustiques et d'insectes en tout genre à la piscine ce qui rendait la baignade parfois difficile.

Pros Great house with a nice terrace overlooking the wine fields. The garden we never used.
Covered parking (one per house).
Wi-fi, though only 15 minutes free per day. One week was 20 euro and worked with a password meaning it worked on multiple phones (though only one at the time).
The place is very quiet in the evenings/nights.
Radda in Chianti is the nearest "real" town and is very nice. It's nearly 25 minutes away by car but there is one (1) small but rather well stocked shop in Lecchi, which is only a few km from the house.
Cons There is only one rather small table for 4 people inside, which doesn't leave much room for eating inside in case of bad weather. We experienced a lot of mosquitoes, but almost only inside and in the afternoon. Not by the (rather cold) pool and not much on the terrace either. The road towards the house (from Radda in Chianti) is very winding and will take minimum 20-25 minutes if you as us have kids who can get car sick. It can make you feel being a bit isolated. Due to the location it will also mean that taking day tours to sites outside the area will take a bit long as it will take around 45 minutes getting just to the highway. However many will surely enjoy the isolated/quiet location.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti is very nice. With one supermarket, nice delicatessen and wine shops, plus cafes etc.

Pros prachtige omgeving, mooi huis van alle gemakken voorzien, privacy en schitterend uitzicht. Fijn zwembad.
Cons Slechts een kindje op motefiorile waardoor het voor de kinderen minder leuk was bij het zwembad. wij zijn daardoor altijd bij Montebuoni gaan zwemmen. Daar waren meer kinderen.
Local attractions ijssalon Sandy in Radda in Chainti. Daartegenover een hele leuke wijnbar. en een prachtig terras verderop in radda aan de linkerkant, waarbij je lekker kunt eten met mooi uitzicht op de wijnvelden.

Pros Le calme, et la vue imprenable sur les vignes. Piscine très agréable.
Villa très confortable avec beaucoup de documentations laissées par les propriétaires.
