See Florence and Tuscany! Make your family and group memories in Italy - La Sugherina

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Aug-2016
Three properties sleep 20, 11 and 4.

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.

Beautiful property, great access to Florence & Chianti, good value

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I hosted a group of friends for a week in early September, 2015 at Le Montanine. We have stayed at Le Montanine many times.

Villa Poggio is a stately villa that sleeps up to 22. (Additional lodging is available in smaller houses on the property.) It stands on a hilltop with a 360 degree view of the rolling Tuscan landscape and the Apennine mountain range. In the villa and elsewhere on the property you'll discover beautiful views of Santa Maria di Fiore Cathedral and Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's Bell Tower, and central Florence.

The grounds are well-kept and the villa has two areas for outdoor gatherings. Our group preferred the more intimate setting on the side patio overlooking the lawn and pond. Another area, where meals may be taken, offers vistas over the vineyards, olive groves, and forests of Chianti with the Apennines in the distance.

We also enjoyed the pool, which was sparkling clean with a view of Florence.

We found the villa clean, the beds comfortable, and the bathrooms spacious

with good water pressure and ample hot water. The linens and towels were clean and in good condition.

Our group enjoyed preparing a few dinners in the large kitchen on the first floor. It is not modern but it is well equipped with everything we needed. The dining room is large and informal and opens onto a lovely garden. I recommend trying Le Montanine's wine, oil, vin Santo, and limoncello.

Cristiana's son, Costa, and his wife Cherry and younger daughter Marta prepared a traditional Tuscan dinner for us one evening. They are warm and charming, and the meal was excellent and a bargain. Dining in also allowed us to stay at Poggio for an entire evening. As many wonderful attractions as Tuscany offers, we all agreed that our best

times were when we spent evenings together at Le Montanine.

It's not necessary to drive all the way into Florence to dine. Over the years, we've had many excellent meals in San Casciano In Val di Pesa, which is a vibrant Chianti town, only 15 minutes away from Le Montanine. San Casciano is very lively in the evenings with many young adults and sweet Italian teenagers laughing and chattering in the pizzerias, gelaterias, and in the pedestrian streets of the centro.

Cristiana is a gracious host and works very hard to make her guests feel welcome and comfortable. We have returned to Le Montanine many times over the years and always recommend it to our friends visiting Tuscany.

Excellent Séjour, nous reviendrons !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.

La location est idéalement située : à la campagne pour le repos mais aussi très proche de Florence pour visiter le centre historique.

Nous voulons également remercier nos hôtes pour leur gentilesse et leur disponibilité. Ils ont toujours répondu à nos moindres demandes et même plus. Merci pour tout : les bonnes informations pour visiter la région, les tomates, les parties de jeux, les séances de cinéma et autres sorties...

Nous prenons rendez-vous pour l'année prochaine, il nous reste l'Aquafan, sortie promise aux filles.

Amélie, Alexandra et Fabrice

Nice view, beautifull pool and very private

  • 5 of 5

La Sugherina is a simple but very charming house on a beautiful location, private with a magnificent view. The land lady Christina was very helpful. We enjoyed the beautiful pool, specially our kids (4 and 7). We had to share the pool with one other house but most of the time we had it to ourselves. We would recommend it to anyone. It is also good value for this area.

Un séjour enchanteur dans les collines

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour au Montanine. L'accueil, le panorama, le logement nous ont donné toute satisfaction. Quelle joie de se plonger dans la piscine au retour de Florence facilement accessible en bus !

Et les vins des propriétaires, d'une grande finesse. Une location d'un très bon rapport qualité-prix.
