Overview

About the property

Peace of mind combined with the richness of the Tuscan architectonic style.

This medieval hamlet dating back to the 13th Century was once a resting place along the ancient Roman road that linked the cities Siena and Arezzo. Set at the edge of the Chianti region, it offers the tranquillity of a rural village, combined with the richness of the Tuscan architectonic style consisting of fired bricks, wooden beams and centuries-old stones which were smoothed by nature and time.The hamlet has been divided into 20 apartments. The garden and pool are shared among all guests.

Borgo di Montefienali emerged in the middle of the 13th Century as a remote staging post on an ancient Roman road into the Chianti. After a two-year restoration project Montefienali is once more the ideal place for rest and recuperation for both body and mind and an ideal get away from it all. It is an ideal place to go hiking or for expert bikers . Its high point is the perfect place for the twin swimming pools. There is a 15 mts x 7,5 mt pool and a small children's swimming pool. Sun beds furnish the surrounding garden and terraces to provide a great place for basking in the sun.

Pools are open from May to September.

There is also a small shop on site , open just some hours a day , which sells local products including, milk, bread, meats, wines and many other products. Outside is a small communal garden with tables, chairs and parasols.
