Resort: Montefienali

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.



Pool Info

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. The children’s pool has a depth of 1mtrs. 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.

Wir waren begeistert von der abgeschiedenen Lage Montefienalis. Ganz toll war der kleine Laden, dessen sehr nette Betreiber jeden Tag frische toskanische Spezialtitäten bereit hielten .

L'accès sur le site est très surprenant, surtout après un long trajet. Il serait utile voire correct, de prévenir les visiteurs que la moindre épicerie est à 20 minutes de route, et qu'il vaut mieux prévoir quelques course avant.
Une fois installés, le site est un magnifique havre de paix, favorisant les échanges entre locataires. Mention Très bien à la cuisine et la gentillesse de Sara.

Good sized apartment right in the centre of the village. Next door to the shop, which is convenient for freshly baked bread/croissants for breakfast. The outdoor café is directly opposite the (glass) door of the apartment so you do get a lot of people walking past and chatting outside. This didn't bother us too much but don't choose this apartment if you want total peace and quiet. Sara was an amazing host, providing little cakes on arrival and other home baked treats for the children, doing her best to make us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.

The apartment smelt musty when we walked in so guess it had been shut up for a while? A scented candle would be a good idea. Lovely clean, modern bathroom. No air con and very hot at night. Don't be tempted to leave the windows open though, the mozzies will come en masse as we found out the first night! Small sofa for four people, someone ends up on one of the wooden kitchen chairs to watch TV. Well equipped apartment though, plenty of storage space.

Be aware - this village is VERY REMOTE. Do your food shopping before you arrive. It's a good 40/50 minute drive to Radda (which is pretty) on very twisty roads and 30 mins to the nearest supermarket in Castelnuovo Berardenga. Also, just a small point of consideration - the village is surrounded by trees and there are very few views to be had of the surrounding countryside, which is very beautiful. This is a real shame - I like trees but I have those at home, I would have loved to see the stunning view more!
Local attractions Make the trip to Siena, it is definitely worth it. Radda in Chianti is pretty, didn't think much of Gaiole. The winery at Castello di Brolio has excellent wine and the castle is worth a look around, with stunning views of the olive groves and vineyards.

Die Lage ist sehr, sehr schön und ruhig, v.a. die Terasse ist wenig einsehbar. Die Wohnung war, abgesehen von den Bettdecken, sehr sauber, und ansprechend eingerichtet, alles hat gut funktioniert (Strom, Lampen, warmes Wasser, Heizung, Herd, Ofen). Zwar ist die Anfahrt sehr steil aber es lohnt sich! Da es sich um ein mittelalterliches Bergdorf handelt, sind die Wohnungen innen natürlich etwas dunkel, aber gerade die Bauweise macht ja den Charme des Dörfchens aus. Man muss wissen, dass der nächste Supermarkt erst in Castelnuovo Berardenga oder Bucine ist, da der Miniladen im Dorf Ende Mai noch nicht geöffnet hat. In San Gusmé gibt es keinen Supermarkt. Der Pool liegt ebenfalls sehr schön, allerdings konnten wir ihn Ende Mai noch nicht nutzen (zu kalt).
In Montefienali und bei den Zugängen zu den Häusern gibt es sehr viele Stufen. Man kann mit dem Auto nicht bis vor sein Haus/seine Wohnung fahren (Wichtig für ältere und gehbehinderte Personen!). Handyempfang sehr schlecht, bzw. meist nicht vorhanden!
Wir waren offensichtlich die ersten Besucher nach dem Winter, zwar war die Wohnung sauber aber v.a. die Betten waren klamm und blieben das auch eine Woche lang! Wir haben die Wohnung erstmal warm wohnen und lüften müssen. Es gab für die vier Betten außer den typisch italienischen Laken keine Wolldecken zum Einschlagen. Die vier Decken, die man in den Schränken fand, waren dreckig bis sehr dreckig (Flecken und Katzenhaare). Ende Mai bei Nachttemperaturen um die 12°C ist es keine Option nur mit Laken zu schlafen!
Local attractions Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Florenz ....

Pour notre second séjour à Montefienali, nous avons à nouveau apprécié le calme et la beauté du village au coeur de la nature.Cette nouvelle location est toujours aussi bien décorer avec tout le confort pour notre séjour. Le parasol a été utile.
Dans la cuisine, il manquait des plats pour le four (tarte et gratin), des verres et des couverts. Sur la terrasse, nous avions besoin de chaises longues. La machine à laver le linge était sale avec des traces et des dépôts, Je l'ai signalé et j'ai du par deux fois la faire tourner à vide pour nettoyer la cuve avant ma lessive.
Local attractions al BOTTEGA à Volpaia = un cadre exceptionnel et une très bonne cuisine.
