Originally a 16th century palace, Villa Albizi has been recently refurbished to a very high standard, retaining many of the original features. The villa is arranged over three floors and has seven double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. This elegant villa is set in the historic hamlet of Montefienali, which was once a staging post on the road into the Chianti region.

There is a private pool in the large gardens, surrounding the pool are pretty lawns and a paved area furnished with sun loungers, tables and umbrellas. Relaxing by the pool there is a fantastic view over the tree covered valley beyond the hamlet.
The entrance opens into the ground floor where there is dining area. Off this is a well equipped kitchen with oven, hobs, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven. Villa Albizi was originally built to serve as a hotel to the hamlet and its kitchen facilities were installed to be used by a professional chef.  The kitchen machines such as the hobs, the oven and the dishwasher are therefore likely to be different to those found in a regular home.  You will be familiarised with the appliances by the local property management company after your arrival to the Villa.
To one side of the dining room is a small lounge bar with sofas and a sitting area with Satellite TV and DVD player. Double doors lead out onto a furnished terrace with dining table, chairs and a barbecue. This is a stunning place to dine or relax as it has panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside.
There are two bedrooms located on the ground floor both of which have direct access to the gardens. Each of these double bedrooms has an en-suit bathroom with shower.
The first floor has a quiet reading room furnished with a table surrounded by a Victorian style sofa and armchairs. To one side is an open fireplace, perfect for an accompanying fire during the cooler evenings in Spring and Autumn. This floor has three double bedrooms each with their own bathrooms with showers. One of the rooms has a small terrace with steps down to the gardens.
The second and final floor has a further two double bedrooms, again both have their own bathrooms; one with a whirlpool bath, the second has a bath with shower. All the bedrooms have been furnished to a high standard and comfort.

Each of the seven bedrooms has great views from the windows, either over the gardens, the hamlet or the stunning countryside.
Outside the attractive gardens are set on two levels, and have been planted with Mediterranean trees and shrubs.  There are four terraced areas to sit and relax in each with fantastic views. Guests also have the use of a solarium and a sauna.  For younger children there is also a small children’s playground located in Montefienali  hamlet.
Every Sunday during July and August there is music and dancing at Monteluco, which is 4km away from the hamlet of Montefienali.
This lovely villa has plenty of space inside and out and is perfect for large family groups or friends wishing to holiday together.


A private pool as well as a sauna are located in the large gardens.
The  electricity for the sauna is charged by consumption, there is a separate meter installed for this .

This villa is ideal for wedding parties, any extra costs involved in holding a wedding or any part of the wedding ceremony at the villa is an extra charge. Contact us for more information

Stay: August 2013
Pros - The breathtaking view on the Tuscany hills and forests !!!
- The bedrooms and bathrooms, good size, all nicely decorated, very comfortable beds
- The pool area : large, trees for the shade, shower and toilets
Cons - The house is surrounded by a lot of houses VERY close ! For example on the outside dining area, you have 2 different neighbours who have a very close and direct view on you. If you plan to have parties or have noisy neighbours, your stay will definately be complicated... - Wifi : the only spot is located in the hall of the house. You can't have network anywhere else in the house. - The pool products are VERY aggressive, most of the children in our party had minor skin reactions but sufficient enough to prevent them from enjoying the pool for a day. By the pool, you have a lot of sunbathing chairs, but most of them are totally broken so you can use only 5 of them, which is a bit underestimated considering the size of the house ! - General equipment : the dining tables outside can only seat 6 people, inside the living room only 2 sofas that can seat 4, kitchen equipment is very poor (too few spoons, glasses, and ustensils to cook), no private washing machine in the house, you have to go to the Internet point where a shared washing machine is avaiable (when not used by neighbours, of course !).

Pros It's big enough for the whole family. the pool is good size so the kids
could play in it. the kitchen is big enough for the chef to use.
Cons very poor check-in. didn't tell us the villa couldn't receive signal for Wi-Fi & cell phone. land phone doesn't work, so no communication with outside world. local people told us about phone in office but only plucked in if there is anyone using the office. Advertised washing machine, but machine is the the office which is quite far, so faulse advertisting. no screen in window or door, chewed up by mosquitos. no tea spoons, mop or broom, can't clean up after kids, have to ask for them. the villa is too hard to get to, terrible roads.
Local attractions all the famous towns in Tuscany are beautiful. Albizi is too far & the road is too narrow & treachrous to drive at night. luckily we have engaged a chef to cook for us every night, so no special restaurant.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

30.07.2012
There is good Internet connection with WiFi. Because of poor mobile phone reception there is a land-line at the Internet Point 100 meters down steps from the villa, the communal washer is found in the same building. Subsequently fly screens were fitted and are now present and household items have been checked and replaced where needed.

Quels ont été les point forts de vos vacances? le village est magnifique
la maison très agréable, la piscine aussi

c'est une région splendide, que du bonheur !
Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? parfait

Avez vous eu de mauvaises surprises? peu de plats pratiques pour cuisiner dans la maison qui était un hotel l'année passée, et qui a donc une cuisine de restauration

éloignement par rapport à une ville
Avez vous d'autres commentaires? c'étaient des vacances de rêve
merci
