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.

The second bedroom is tastefully furnished with a wrought iron double bed and a large traditional style wardrobe. Pleasant views down into the wooded valley can be enjoyed from the bedroom window. There is a  second bathroom with shower.

Ideal family accommodation in peaceful rural surroundings.

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.

There is also a wonderful shop on site which sells local produce including, milk, bread, meats, wines and many other products. Outside is a small communal garden with tables, chairs and parasols.
The shop is open from the middle of June to the middle of September.

Shopping service available for an extra charge. Please book in advance if required on arrival. You may also arrange this service on site for the remainder of your stay.

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.

Das Dorf liegt sehr abgelegen und ruhig. Es gibt einen Pool, jedoch gibt es hier sehr viele Fliegen und Stechmücken (Stechmückenspray erforderlich). Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet (Mobiliar und auch die kleinen Details). Bei schönem Wetter kann man draußen auf der Veranda sitzen. Wir waren 4 Peronen und hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.
Für den Hofladen gibt es keine Öffnungszeiten und in der Woche wo wir vor Ort waren, hatte der Laden bis auf ein einziges Mal immer geschlossen. Zudem gibt es theoretisch die Möglichkeit sich abends Essen bestellen zu können, welches direkt vor Ort frisch zubereitet wird. Ein angekündigtes Barbecue wurde kurzfristig abgesagt, ohne uns zu informieren. An einem anderen Abend hatten wir Essen bestellt, dieses wurde aber nciht geliefert und wir wurden abermals ohne Rückmeldung versetzt. Die Dienstleistung vor Ort ist alles in Allem sehr enttäuschend. Man sollte sich bewusst sein, dass man sich vornehmlich selbst versorgt oder für einen Restaurantbesuch weiter fahren muss.
Local attractions Wir haben Tagesausflüge nach Florenz und Sienna gemacht. Eine Weinprobe bei dem Weingut Cantalici (empfehlenswert!). Das Restaurant "Osteria il bandito" in Castagnoli ist ebenfalls zu empfehlen.
