La Stella is a villa, which comfortably sleeps up to four people. It is reached from the upper car park along a gravel path and down a flight of steps. At the front door you are welcomed by a small paved garden surrounded by Mediterranean shrubs.
To the left of the front door, as you enter the house, you will find a useful shower room. A small brick archway then leads you through into the open plan living, dining, kitchen area. The fully equipped corner kitchen is modern with cream wooden units and granite work top. Here you will find a gas hob, microwave oven, under-counter fridge with drawer compartment freezer and dishwasher.
The dining area has an extendable wooden table and chairs. The comfortable sofa and large coffee table provide a welcome place to relax and also enjoy the views that can be seen from the French Windows.
The two double bedrooms and the bathrooms are located just off this central living area. Whilst the living area boasts tiled floors the bedrooms have wooden parquet floors. Tiled and beamed ceilings are found throughout the house.
The bedrooms are of a similar size, each with wrought iron double beds and large double wardrobes offering ample storage. In addition, the bedroom windows have mosquito screens. In the main bathroom you will find a shower, basin and WC, plus a washing machine.
The private garden at the rear makes the most of its hillside location, taking in the wonderful panorama of vineyards and olive groves from every angle. From the house you step onto a large tiled upper terrace furnished with table, chairs and parasol. This a place to linger in the evening over a glass of Chianti wine.  Steps lead down to a middle, gravelled terrace shaded by shrubs and trees and finally down to a stone paved terrace which borders onto olive groves.

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 Sehr schöne Einrichtung, liebevoll angelegtes Anwesen, tolle Lage und herrliche Aussicht
Cons Für ein Ferienhaus mit 2 Schlafzimmern mit Doppelbett ist der Wohnraum nicht entsprechend ausgestattet - es sollte statt 1 Sofa und 1 Sessel besser mit 2 Sofas ausgestattet sein, so dass 4 Erwachsene bequem Platz haben. Das Haus ist außerdem extrem hellhörig.

The apartment was not prepared before the client's arrival for which the owner apologies for the error, local cleaning arrived and helped as best they could, one of the WC's flush button needs major repair in the close season but has a temporary pull flush system in the meantime.

Pros Neulich habe ich die Wohnung La Stella in Montefiorile besichtigt und möchte Ihnen nun gerne über die enormen Verbesserungen berichten, die der Vermieter innerhalb und außerhalb der Wohnung vorgenommen hat.



Ich fand die Wohnung sehr sauber und erfrischt durch die helle Einrichtung und die vielen Fenster, sie besteht aus hellen Räumen, die den toskanischen Stil zur Geltung bringen.



Die Toiletten sind kontrolliert worden, sowie die mit der defekten Spülung repariert worden. Das Moskitonetz in einem der Zimmer ist ausgewechselt worden.



Am Pool befinden sich viel mehr Liegestühle als früher. Der Vermieter bittet um Verständnis, da er nicht für alle Gäste einen Liegestuhl zur Verfügung stellen kann. Ich finde die Stückzahl der Liegemöglichkeit am Pool jetzt optimal.



Durch die Bauweise am Hang von Montefiorile hat man von allen Wohnungen und auch von La Stella einen tollen Blick auf die Landschaft sowohl von der gepflegten Terrasse als auch von dem darunter gelegenen Garten, der durch duftende Rosmarinhecken etwas mehr Privatsphäre und Ruhe bietet als der auf der Terrasse.

La Stella
 Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die Mille Miglia, die wir hinter Sancepulcro an dem Freitag in einer Kurve in den Bergen bewundert haben. Aber auch die Städte Arezzo, San Gimignano, Radda in Chianti, Greve in Chinati und Castellina in Chianti waren ein Besuch wert. Ein Spaziergang nach S. Sano und Lecchi durch die Weinberge war ein weiteres Erlebnis und der Abschlussabend in der Tatorria in S. Sano war wahrlich ein Genuss.
 Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck der Unterbrungung? Die Lage der Unterkunftr war sehr schön, der Blick über die Weinberge, die drei Terassen, wo sich jeder auch einmal bis auf die unterste Terasse zum Lesen, Träumen, Zeichnen zurückziehen konnte. Die Wohnung war geschmackvoll ausgestattet, die Küche für italienische Verhältnisse perfekt. Auch die zwei Bäder für zwei Pärchen waren sehr gut. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Den Swimmingpool haben wir nachmittags ein paarmal genutzt, was nach einer Tour sehr angenehm war.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Es gab zwei winzige Kleinigkeiten, die in der Wohnung gestört hatten: die Toilittenspülung in dem Bad, wo die Waschmaschine stand, hatte getropft und das Fliegengitter in dem Schlafzimmer mit den bodentiefen Fenstern war kaput. Wir haben ersteres lösen können, da es ja wir zwei Bäder hatten und abends nur noch das zweite Bad genutzt. Das bodentiefe Fenster haben wir abends nicht geöffnet, was auch in Ordnung war, da der Raum sehr hoch war.
