Superb location, very remote. Lovely pool.
Local attractions Sienna is well worth a trip. Very scenic drive through the mountains, then easy, although expensive, parking outside the city walls.

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!!

Monte Fontechiusi ist ein Paradies.
Wer Ruhe sucht ist hier am richtigen Ort.
Die Beschreibung des Hauses stimmte exakt.
Die Eigentümer Anna und Pietro sind perfekte Gastgeber.
Hier fühlt man sich wohl.
Local attractions Bei einem Aufenthalt von einer Woche ist es zu schade Monte Fontechiusi für einen Ausflug zu verlassen. Sollte man vorher oder nachher machen.

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.

The isolation away from towns and the quiet tranquillity.
The villa, pool and layout were clean and excellent. We cooked many times in the villa and everything was there that we needed.
The owners were fantastic hosts and always ready to help in any way.
Local attractions We were lucky enough to see the Palio in Siena which was a fantastic day out. The beauty of Lucca amazing. The history of Florence. We also visited the towns of Arrezzo, Radda, Gaiola, San Gimignano and generally explored the surrounding countryside and ate in some of their local restaurants. All these were an easy drive away. The gravel road to the villa was not a problem at all as some have made out before.

Delightful owners who were helpful but not intrusive as others have said. Gave us free range eggs laid by their chickens and also home grown lettuce! The property is lovely with beautiful grounds and very peaceful.
It is remote which we were expecting from other reviewers comments so was not a big problem but did put us off going out in the evening.
Local attractions Radda is nice to potter round and it is very easy to park for free at the station at Montevarchi to travel by train to both Florence and Rome. Queues are very long in Florence.
