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.

Authentiek klein dorpje waarvan de huizen zijn omgebouwd tot vakantiewoningen. Het dorpje en de natuur in directe omgeving zijn prachtig. Mooie plek om tot rust te komen en wandelingen te maken. Mooie beboste valleien en veel wild. Zwemblad, tuinen en huisje zijn heel mooi.

Minpunt: Dorpje is bereikbaar via 1km onverharde weg en vervolgens een zeer smalle en steile asfaltweg. Voor mensen met hoogtevrees kan dit een belemmering zijn.
