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.

Het was een heel aangenaam verblijf en alles was voorzien. Heel mooi zwembad en zeer vriendelijke eigenaars. De eigenaars wonen naast het vakantiehuisje maar respecteren de privacy van de huurders. De groenten en eitjes 's morgens waren een leuke verrassing. De ligging vonden wij iets minder aangezien wij graag wel eens een uitstapje doen. Je moet toch enige tijd rijden voor een grootwarenhuis, restaurantjes, .... De onverharde weg mag ook niet onderschat worden. Het landschap rond het huis is wel prachtig en enorm rustig. We zouden dit verblijf dan ook aanraden voor mensen die echt tot rust willen komen en willen genieten van het prachtige landschap rond het huis.

Our stay at Villa Montef Fontechiusi was just perfect! Pietro & Anna are the most caring, kind & honest people we have met during our travels. They gave us privacy but we're always available to help whenever we needed them. We were spoilt with fresh produce from their farm & fresh eggs daily!
The villa is situated up high overlooking the rolling hills of Toscana. We saw some wild pigs walking around which made our stay even more memorable!
I spent hours looking for the perfect villa in Chianti. I am so happy I chose this Villa it ticked every box & more! We are already saving to go back.there!
Thank you Pietro & Anna for such a memorable stay. We hope to meet again one day!
Local attractions We loved the Gaioli, Radda, Greve, Castellina, San Gimignano & Cortona!

Wir haben im August sehr schöne und erholsame 2 Wochen in Monte Fontechiusi verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr schön gelegen mit tollem Blick über die Toskana. Der Pool war super. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und zurückhaltend und wir haben immer frische Eier, sowie Salat und Gemüse aus Ihrem Garten bekommen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und die Lage bietet viele Möglichkeiten zum Wandern und Mountainbike fahren.
Local attractions Die wunderschöne Natur rundherum und die Ruhe ist ideal um auszuspannen.

Herrliche Abgeschiedenheit, wo man Ruhe finden konnte. Die Gastfamilie war sehr nett, hilfsbereit, freundschaftlich und gleichzeitig sehr dezent. Der Pool als auch die gesamte Anlage war sehr schön. Die voll und modern eingerichtete Küche ist sehr hilfreich, wenn man kochen möchte. Die Gastgeber haben uns mit frischen Produkten aus Hof und Garten versorgt und waren ausserordentlich gastfreundlich und vollkommen unkompliziert. Hilfreich war auch, dass man in englisch kommunizieren konnte. Ausflüge (auch Wanderungen) in das Umland und auch nach Siena sind gut machbar, Restaurants in der Umgebung sind ebenfalls gut.Wir würden wieder dort Urlaub machern
Wenn man ständig WLAN benutzen will, dann ist es dort auf dem Berg etwas schwierig, da es häufig aussetzt.

Villa is located in a fantastic place where a beautiful view of the countryside. Pietro and Anna are very nice and friendly. they are always willing to give advice. It was nice when Pietro brought home eggs or salad. Everywhere was clean and everything tidy. We used the pool constantly, whether after returning from a trip, or while relaxing. We definitely recommend this villa.We chose this destination for rest and certainly do not regret
As wrote the other visitors before the last piece of the access road is a bit worse. However, careful driving is not a problem to overcome.
Local attractions We visited Florence, Pisa and Siena. Florence is advisable to take the train, it is convenient and there is not problem to look for parking. Pisa and Siena are easily reachable by car.

Beautiful location, with fantastic views of Tuscan Hills. Peaceful and restful. Pietro and Anna (owners) were very discrete but always available and helpful if we needed any assistance. Would definitely recommend.
The last few kilometres of the road approaching Monte are a little hairy, drive slowly, or get a 4x4!
Local attractions We were very happy to spend the whole week exploring the local countryside on foot and lazing by the pool - and drinking lots of wine!!

Wir bedanken uns für den wunderschönen Aufenthalt auf Monte Fontechiusi, vor allem bei den Eigentümern und Sonia Merolli.

Wie bereits oft angeklungen, waren auch bei uns die Highlights der große Pool mit dem tollen Ausblick über die Hügellandschaft der Toskana und die
Städte in der Region. Besonders gefällt uns jedoch auch immer wieder der Ausflug auf der „strada del chianti“, wo man an jedem Weingut anhalten, Wein & Öl probieren und dann auch direkt kaufen kann.
Die Eigentümer im Nachbarhaus Anna und Pietro waren sehr herzlich, zuvorkommend und äusserst freundlich. Der Umstand, dass der Eigentümer direkt anliegend auf dem Grundstück wohnt, war überhaupt nicht störend.
Im Gegenteil, wir haben sehr hilfreiche Hinweise zu Routen/ Einkaufsmöglichkeiten/ Restaurants und zum Weinerwerb erhalten. Ansonsten waren wir, wenn nicht anders gewollt, für uns alleine.

Das Haus ist absolut zweckmäßig eingerichtet und die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Die dicken Steinwände halten die Wärme nach innen ab. Die Kinder haben den Auslauf des Anwesens genossen.

Die Schotterstrasse zum Anwesen hin ist lang aber keinesfalls schwierig zu fahren, da nicht steil. Von Montegonzi bis über das Restaurant la Forra hinaus ist die Strasse geteert, danach beginnt der Schotter.
Es ist ratsam hier dennoch langsam zu fahren, da Tiere die Fahrbahn kreuzen.
Local attractions Ein Highlight eines jeden Toskanabesuchs ist Siena oder auch Florenz. Siena ist gut per Auto zu erreichen, Florenz sind wir auf die vielen Empfehlungen hin mit der Bahn aus Montevarchi angefahren. Dies hat ebenfalls sehr gut geklapt. Pietro hatte hierzu einige Tipps parat. Der Urlaub war sehr erholsam und wir können den Aufenthaltsort –auch für Kinder- absolut empfehlen.
