Grifone at Montefiorile, Lecchi in Chianti - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 to 3 people In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Situated on the side of the grand central house of Borgo Montefiorile there are two terraces and two gardens on three levels, entrance is gained from the lower herbal garden, which has a cool shady terrace ideal for dining.

Entering to the right there is the kitchenette with dining area ahead, beyond the dining area is the living area with a double sofa bed. To the right there is the bathroom.

Upstairs is a beautiful bedroom with tiled floors and ample wardrobes, there are double doors, which lead to a furnished terrace with wide-open views across the vineyards and olive groves of the Chianti.

There are wide open views from the terraces.

This hamlet is specifically designed to promote a quiet and peaceful environment for friends and couples to enjoy quality time together. For this reason, we would recommend Montefiorile for adults only.

Montefiorile is a small hamlet of 14 villas situated in a tranquil position in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine producing area. The hamlet is on a hillside and the houses enjoy stunning views over the vineyards and olive groves and across wooded hillsides as far as Monte Amiata on the distant horizon.Constructed in recent years, alongside the neighbouring village of Montebuoni, using local stone and materials, it retains the atmosphere of a Tuscan hilltop village with the advantage of features such as larger than usual windows and doors which allow light and air to enter into the properties.

The salt-water swimming pool sits in a high point behind the hamlet and is surrounded by terraced lawns which enjoy full sun all day. There is a covered parking area at the bottom of the hamlet and the houses are reached by gently winding gravel paths and stone steps flanked by aromatic shrubs and herbs, whilst native oak trees provide welcome shade. The open piazza in the centre can be enjoyed by all residents and is flanked by one hundred year old olive trees. This is a great vantage point to appreciate the views by day or for a stroll under the star filled skies at night. Montefiorile is an ideal base for exploring the local villages, the castles of Brolio or Meleto and enjoying winetasting in one of the areas vineyards.

Approach road - 1.5 km very good unpaved road

Perfect place to relax by the pool which is situated a bit higher at the back of the holiday villas.  Benefiting from the sun all day shade is provided by olive and native oak trees. The pool area is fenced and screened from the access road by tall hedging. There are several sun beds and umbrellas at the pool.

The salt water, fenced pool is 13 meters in length and 5 meters wide, 1.5 meters deep and can be easily entered by Roman steps. There is a part with hydro massage. It is open from May to October, weather permitting.

Guest villa score
We were very pleasantly surprised by the amount of space we had in this villa. It's on two floors, which we've not had before, with an entrance at the top and at the bottom. We did not eat on the downstairs terrace at all, as we preferred the views from the terrace outside the bedroom, which were incidentally far better than we were expecting. This meant having to bring the food up from the kitchen and through the bedroom, though this wasn't a problem at all for us. The kitchen was wonderfully cool, even in the middle of the day. It's located next to one of the footpaths which we were a little concerned by, but this turned out not to be an issue at all - during the week that we were there, I think only maybe two or three people walked past. It's quite handy for the car park and very near the check in point and office. Another bonus was the swallows who had built a nest there - wonderful to watch, though we were a little worried about disturbing them, so we didn't use the downstairs door as much. The bed was comfortable; the bedroom itself was very warm but the fan provided helped hugely with that. A very pleasant stay indeed!
Local attractions Stay away from the monstrously expensive gelateria near the Campo in Siena - there's a much cheaper one on one of the streets on the way back to the San Sebastian car park! Castellina is still a great, buzzy place to go for amazing pizza.
