About the property

Le Montanine

Le Montanine is an old biodynamic wine and olive oil producing estate set in the rolling Chianti hills just 6 miles South of Florence and with fast and easy access to the Tuscan highway network.

We offer various accomodation solutions:

A large villa (20 beds) suited for large families or friends groups with private swimming-pool and garden, a 11 guest house with garden and shared pool and another smaller cottage ideal for a small family of 2 adults and two children also with its garden and shared pool access. We also have other apartments available in a nearby XIV century villa.

Visit Florence in the morning and bask on one of the relaxing and panoramic swimming-pools while tasting a glass of our Chianti. Enjoy a relaxing dinner with your family and friends under the moonlight and the stars, the night will reveal you its wonders. Possibility to visit some of the most idyllic hidden locations in Tuscany: enjoy a refreshing swim in an enchanted Pliocene landscape river or an Indiana Jones adventure at an ancient castle submerged by a wild forest.

Things to do in the property: If you have kids that you need to keep amused, don't worry! There is plenty to do in this area. There is plenty of inside and outside room to have fun and play at the two swimming-pools, gardens and forests. If you are interested we'll be glad to show you the vineyards and our wine cellar and tell you how our famous Chianti wines are made.

We are located in the Chianti winemaking region and we are actually producing our biodynamic wine and olive oil and we'll be glad to show you the ancient cellar and the way we produce the Bacchus nectar.

It is possible to make trips to all famous Tuscan cities and towns all easily accessible by the nearby highways in less than an hour drive.

Visit San Gimignano, unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its medieval tower houses, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls form an unforgettable skyline; Siena, one of the nation's most visited tourist attractions, famous for the Palio, a horse race held twice a year in July and August; the leaning tower of Pisa; Lucca with its intact Renaissance-era city walls, Arezzo, the Etruscan Volterra, seaside resort of Viareggio and the amazing Unesco World Heritage Site Cinque terre...

Some of our guests even went as far as Venice and Rome on a day trip!

Are you interested in outdoor trekking, swimming and exploring fascinating natural and historical locations? Let we know and we might propose visits to Indiana Jones' ghost castles submerged in the forest, the WWII German fortifications of the Gothic line in the Apennines mountains or even a river hike and splashing swim experience in warm natural pools on a Pliocene-era river surrounded by the breathtaking spectacle of unspoiled nature. You and your kids won't regret it!
