2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 people In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Situated in the heart of the village, Casa de’ Pecci B is a first floor apartment that enjoys wonderful views south over the rooftops of Montefienile and westward towards wooded hillsides, vineyards and olive groves. A particular delight is the private garden on the west side of the house which is the perfect place to enjoy spectacular sunsets whilst enjoying a meal al fresco accompanied by a glass of local wine. Well furnished throughout it is a perfect holiday retreat for a family of four or friends travelling together.

The old, red, Tuscan double doors are reached up stone steps from the central pathway. These lead into the open plan living, dining and kitchen area which has a high wooden beamed ceiling and traditional terracotta tiled floor. The kitchen and dining area are in a contemporary style. A sleek fitted kitchen is fully furnished with 4 gas hobs, an electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and under-counter fridge with freezer compartment. A glass topped dining table and 4 chairs are conveniently placed under a south facing window.

The lounge area is furnished in a traditional style. A large sofa and two armchairs arranged around the wood burning stove offer a comfortable place to relax indoors. Quality wooden furniture and accessories have been carefully chosen to give a feeling of welcome and well-being. In addition a large TV SAT, DVD player and CD-radio music system are provided.

The two bedrooms and bathrooms are reached up three stone steps. The first bathroom is tiled in travertine and has a shower. The washing machine is in this bathroom. The first bedroom has two wrought-iron framed twin beds. This pretty room is furnished with a large wardrobe, a chest of drawers, bookcase and bedside tables.

The master bedroom has a wrought-iron framed double bed, large wardrobe, a dressing table with mirror and bed-side tables with reading lamps. The room has a bright and airy feel with a picture-frame window from which uninterrupted countryside views can be enjoyed and a large French window. The adjoining bathroom is finished in travertine and has a shower.

The private garden is reached by a very short walk down the steps and along the path around to the back of the house. Surrounded by aromatic plants and shrubs, the dining terrace is furnished with a table, 6 chairs and a barbecue. Here you can enjoy dining outdoors under the wisteria covered pergola. A gravelled area of the garden enjoys the sun and is furnished with two sun-loungers and a parasol.

One of Italy's national monuments Montefienali emerged in the middle of the 13th Century as a remote staging post on an ancient Roman road into the Chianti. After a two-year restoration project Montefienali is once more the ideal place for rest and recuperation for both body and mind and an ideal get away from it all.

Montefienali high point is the perfect place for its twin swimming pools. There is a 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs pool and a small children’s swimming pool 1 mtr deep - pools are open from April to October. Sun beds and umbrellas furnish the surrounding garden and terraces to provide a great place for basking in the sun while taking in the stunning vista of the hamlet and hilltop villages beyond.

A selection of accommodation of individual cottages in an isolated location with terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and traditional-style furniture, creating an appealingly traditional ambience that offers a private terrace/garden to enjoy the Tuscan hills while sun bathing or dining outdoors.
Every Sunday during July and August there is music and dancing at Monteluco, which is 4km away from Montefienali.

Note about the approach road: Approximately 2 km of wide, well maintained,  unpaved road of no particular difficulty followed by a final kilometre of narrow paved road with 100 mtrs of steep slope at 25% . Proceed with caution in case of oncoming traffic.

Bathed in sunshine for most of the day, the swimming pool is in a secluded position at the top of the village. Surrounded by terraced lawns and screened by trees it enjoys wonderful, uninterrupted views of the surrounding hillsides. It is a pleasure to take the short uphill path through the trees in order to reach this tranquil spot. Picnic tables and benches under a covered terrace above the pools add to the enjoyment.

The main pool is 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs and 1.5 mtrs deep, open April to October (weather permitting). The children’s pool is 5 x 5 mtrs and 0.60 mtrs deep. There are plenty of sun-loungers with head shades, making this a great place to soak up the sun and enjoy the magnificent natural surroundings of Montefienali.

Stunning location but nothing prepares you for the distances to & from everywhere else! On paper the distances don't seem too bad but the narrow, winding roads before you reach the autostradas make the journeys very slow. The nearest sizeable shop is a long way so you really need to plan grocery shopping ahead and pick things up enroute home from a day out. The shop on site is pretty and "high-end" but opens at unreliable hours and is hugely expensive e.g 1 euro per egg!!! and 10 euros for a single (small) portion of lasagne. The villa was comfortable and peaceful with good Wi-Fi connection for our teenagers. Mobile signal poor but no problem. Satellite television did not work throughout our holiday as the card needed replacing which was a pity. Cleaning ladies were lovely, visited regularly and left the place immaculate, with plentiful fluffy towels. Pool area suffered from the excessive heatwave and looked like scorched earth. It could do with hard surface around the sunbathing area then the vegetation from people's feet won't end up in the pool! Welcome pack was ok. Saying the fridge had a freezer compartment was stretching it a bit as it was barely big enough for ice cube trays. The local wildlife is fun; deer, a couple of handsome wild boar, lizards and bats. We had a bedroom visit from a bat one evening causing much chaos but he escaped unharmed thankfully. The size of the hornets is to be seen to believed but they generally find their way out if left to their own devices. Mosquito repellent is an absolute MUST. Stunning views, peaceful location and lovely for a complete break "away from it all"
Local attractions Florence and Sienna are both stunning, although be prepared for frantic traffic in and around Florence. San Gimigniano is a beautiful place but quite a trek. I'm afraid we didn't eat out at night because of the distances involved but we took advantage of lunch, coffee and plenty of ice creams in the cites and towns we visited. Ladies' clothes shopping is a delight and the pure Italian linen items are stunning, beautiful quality and not expensive. The market at Castel Nuovo Barendengo on Thursday was a lovely visit and the café on the piazza was wonderful.
