Montesassi is a fantastic, old style, stone Tuscan villa situated in the heart of the Chianti between Panzano and Castellina in Chianti. It is on three floors and is fully catered.
The gardens are filled with local plants and are well maintained. A pretty path leads to the secluded pool area which is perfect to relax in peace with a glass of Chianti and soaking up the warm Tuscan sun.
Within the garden there are several areas to enjoy meals outdoors or just lounge around after a day of sight seeing. In one corner is a large, shaded stone table while nearby there are a couple of sitting areas. Under a pergola is an outdoor lounge furnished with comfortable cushioned wicker sofas and armchairs.
Inside the villa is a well equipped kitchen which is used by the cook to prepare meals. Guests can use this only for drinks and snacks. It opens onto a small, cosy dining room, ideal for small groups. There is also a guest toilet off the room.
This leads past the stairs to the first floor on to a larger dining room. It is a luminous and spacious room with access to the stone paved courtyard in front of the villa. The room has a decorative fireplace and the original villa ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The large wooden table comfortably seats 10 but can be opened up to seat up to 14 people.
The first floor can be accessed either from the ground floor or externally via terracotta steps from the stone courtyard. At the top of the stairs is a sitting room decorated in green. It has an overstuffed triple sofa and two matching armchairs which face the huge, original fireplace.
From here three steps lead into the second sitting area which has floor height bookcases and a couple of armchairs to relax and read. This continues onto the third lounge where there is a small fireplace, a triple sofa and two armchairs. To one side is a television. From this room double doors lead to external steps and the courtyard.
Off this room is the first of the bedrooms. It's with a large double bed which can be made into a twin if requested on booking. The bedroom is decorated with an antique chest of drawers, wooden wardrobe, two green armchairs and a writing desk and chair. The white rugs and white and green decor provide the room with some brightness. Next to this is a green bathroom with tub and handheld shower.
The rest of the first floor is made up of a long room divided into two parts by a squared arch with curtains. The smallest part has a modern lounge with a white triple sofa and two matching armchairs. While two wood and leather armchairs provide the room with some extra colour.
To the other side of the arch is a larger room furnished with a big triple sofa and matching double sofa plus two armchairs. In the centre is a low wood coffee table filled with various knick-knacks. The room has a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
From the green lounge stairs lead up to the second floor where there are another three bedrooms. At the top is a huge bedroom decorated in white and green with a decorative fireplace that has a writing desk and chair in front of it. To one side is a large double bed with an armchair at the foot and a four door wardrobe. En-suite is a big bathroom with wooden paneled walls. It has a tub with handheld shower.
Continuing down a corridor, to the left there is another double bedroom which can be set up as a twin room if requested on booking. The room has a warm atmosphere due to the terracotta floor and ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The cream decor sets off the wood of the wardrobe and chest of drawers. En-suite is a bathroom with dark wooden walls, it has a tub with handheld shower. This bathroom is accessed also from the third bedroom on this floor.
This bedroom is a double room with an antique bed. It has a low ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta, care needs to be taken only at the far wall. The room is furnished with a double wardrobe and a chest of drawers.
From the courtyard there is access to a triple bedroom which is suitable mostly for children. It is on the ground floor of the villa and has an en-suite bathroom with shower. The final bedroom is in the annex, it's on the ground floor and is simpler than the other bedrooms in the villa. It has an iron bed with a sofa. To the back is an open wardrobe and the bathroom with tub and handheld shower.
5 double bedrooms, 2 of which can be set up as twin rooms. If twins are required this must be requested when booking.
1 triple bedroom which is not indicated on the floor plan.

Pool Info

The pool is located in a wonderfully secluded and private corner of the garden. It's a short walk from the villa and is surrounded by abundant shrubs and plants which also provide shade for part of the day. There is no view from the pool area.
Around the pool is a narrow, pretty flagstone deck beyond which there is a perfectly manicured lawn dotted with sunbeds and umbrellas. At the deep end of the pool is a diving board. Under a pergola near the shallow end is a stone table with benches.
The pool is 12x6 metres and 1.2-2.5 metres deep. It's open from May to September, weather permitting. Pool towels are supplied.
