La Chiocciola at Montefienali, Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

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

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.

Situated in a central position on the west side of the main pathway La Chiocciola is reached up stone steps to a terracotta tiled terrace which overlooks the main village pathway. This is a  pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy the views over neighbouring rooftops towards the surrounding hills.

The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area is pleasantly furnished in a country style to complement the terracotta tiled floors and the high wooden beamed ceilings.  A comfortable sofa and SAT TV and CD player in the living area is to be found on passing through the dark oak front door.

Walking through to the kitchen and dining area at the  rear of the house, where the large windows and glass doors allow views to the west to be fully enjoyed, a further outdoor space is to be found. A great spot for a barbecue as the sun sets over the distant hillside.

The fully fitted, cream painted ,kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, gas hobs, microwave and dishwasher. Please note that there is no conventional oven. The coordinating dining suite provides ample space for four people to dine in comfort.

A carpeted cast iron spiral staircase leads up to the bedrooms. The main bedroom is furnished with matching twin beds with tables and reading lamps and a large wardrobe with night safe. Please note that these beds cannot be made into a double. An en-suite bathroom with shower, WC, bidet and washbasin adds to the comfort.
