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.

Het huisje was proper en de lakens en handdoeken werden elke week vervangen, dus dat is super! De sleutelbewaarder en zijn vrouw waren ook heel vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Het dorpje is zeer rustig gelegen en aan het zwembad was het rustig en zalig vertoeven! Maar aan de weg er naar toe, en dan vooral de laatste 1.2 km mag / moet echt iets aan gedaan worden om de veiligheid te verhogen, een systeem met rood licht of zo. Als deze verbetert zou worden, zouden we zeker nog terugkomen! Het enige dat jammer was: het winkeltje en het cafe zou normaal gezien half juni opengaan, maar wij zijn de laatste 2 weken van juni geweest, en 't winkeltje was nog steeds niet open. Omdat de borgo nogal afgelegen is, was dat wel heel jammer. Misschien moet dit correct op de website vermeld worden.
Local attractions San Giminiano is gezellig om rond te kuieren en de torens te proberen te tellen ;-) Montepulciano is inderdaad wel berg op en berg af, maar daarom niet minder leuk. Een wijnkelder bezoeken en wijn proeven behoort daar natuurlijk bij. Deze beiden steden zijn zeker een aanrader. De dorpjes van de Chianti er rondom zijn klein en schattig. Ook Volpaia is super gezellig en daar is Forno zeker een aanrader om te lunchen. Supervriendelijk en echt lekker!!!
