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

Enjoying a tranquil, position in the hamlet, just off the central piazza , Il Sole, offers all that you require for a memorable holiday immersed in the magnificent Chianti countryside. Well equipped and furnished by the owners, and with a garden and terrace, it has many special touches that make the apartment quickly feel like home away from home.

Through the main entrance you enter into the kitchen. The painted kitchen units and granite worktops complement the traditional tiled cotto floors and wooden beamed ceiling which are to be found throughout the apartment. With gas hob and electric oven and usefully large freestanding fridge-freezer preparing meals here is a pleasure. An archway leads through into the living room which is tastefully furnished with modern sofas and glass topped dining table. Linen drapes, open fireplace and shelves stocked with many useful guidebooks create a welcome place in which to sit and plan the day.

French doors lead out to a sunny private terrace where you will find table and chairs for four people plus parasol and sun loungers. Your eyes will be drawn to the breathtaking views  of vineyards and distant, wooded hillsides.
Both double bedrooms are on the lower level and are reached down a flight of travertine steps. These bedrooms, with wrought iron beds, have ample storage space in the large built in wardrobes.
There is a shared large bathroom where the washing machine can also be found.




Access to the shaded and private garden, which is planted with mediterranean shrubs and herbs, is also from this lower level.




Il Sole is a split level apartment with wide open views of the surrounding Tuscan hills and vineyards.

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.
