Monte Fontechiusi, Fontechiusi - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

This picture-perfect stone cottage is set on a large estate near Gaiole in the heart of Chianti in Tuscany. It offers some spectacular views of extinct volcano Monte Amiata, circled by dense green forest. Sleeping four, in two bedrooms, this well-appointed two-storey villa provides a warm, welcoming place for a smaller family or two couples. The large living space is packed with richly coloured rugs, cushions, framed prints and decorative china plates creating a homely feel with plenty of traditional Tuscan features such as terracotta tiles, wooden beams and a loggia furnished with a sofa, table and chairs.

Traditional terracotta extends to the generously proportioned gardens with colourful plants in pots joining a terrace to one side of the villa furnished with sun loungers and a parasol. Another spot in which to relax outside is the pergola by the entrance to the villa, which offers a swing chair, two tables, sofas and chairs. A few steps from the house, your private pool has its own pretty painted iron pergola, furnished with a table and chairs, and is the ideal place from which to admire the forest-covered hills rising up in the distance. You won’t want to leave the relaxing villa and gardens, but the nearest town, medieval Montegonzi, has a restaurant called La Forra and small grocery shop for picking up supplies or a quiet bite to eat.

Our Thoughts
This property is very much a home, from the interesting, well-placed artefacts lining the walls to the sprawling gardens packed with lovingly tended terracotta potted plants, olive trees and stone-stepped paths. Inspiration to cook al-fresco feasts comes from the pizza oven, barbecue and grill under the shade of a pergola. The Chianti available to buy wine nearby at Cavriglia, by the bottle or in bulk, Tuscan olive oil and other regional specialities are the perfect accompaniment. If your interest in wine extends beyond a tipple over dinner, the nearby Museum of Chianti Wine offers the opportunity to taste more than 140 wines.

Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms. The owners live in a villa in the grounds, and are available to assist guests. The pool is completely private to guests, the owners will rarely use it or may not use it at all.

We had an excellent holiday at Monte Fontichiusi. The house was a lovely typical Tuscan property that supplied everything you need and more, and was very clean. It's outside area was very spacious with beautiful gardens. The pool was amazing and had panoramic views of the surrounding hills. The owners Pietro and Anna were wonderfull people and helpfull whenever needed. And we were very grateful for the fresh tomatoes and lettuce they left us every day. We really can recommend this house for comfort peace tranquility and beautifull views.
