Gaiole in Chianti apartment
Montefiorile itself is a small hamlet of 14 villas situated in a tranquil position in the heart of the Gaiole in Chianti wine producing area, near Lecchi and Castello di Ama. The open piazza in the centre of the village can be enjoyed by all residents and is flanked by one hundred year old olive trees. This is a great vantage point to appreciate the views by day or to enjoy a stroll under the star filled skies at night. Montefiorile is an ideal point for exploring the local villages and castles, like Brolio and Meleto, and enjoying winetasting in one of the nearby vineyards.
A set of terracotta steps leads from the piazza to the main door of the cottage which then opens straight into the living and dining area. To the left is the fitted kitchen. A wooden dining table and chairs along with two comfortable sofas which have been arranged in front of the fireplace create a pleasant place to relax indoors.
Passing through the french doors at far end of this room you enter into the large private garden, equipped with outdoor table and chairs, surrounded by shady trees and aromatic shrubs.
The master bedroom, with double bed, is of a good size and also enjoys direct access out into the garden. There is an adjacent bathroom. The second bedroom is on the other side of the living area and is furnished with two single beds. This room overlooks the piazza and the beautiful panorama of Chianti. A second bathroom with shower is adjacent to this bedroom.
The hamlet is on a hillside and the houses enjoy stunning views over the vineyards of Ama Castle and olive groves and across wooded hillsides as far as Monte Amiata and Val d'Orcia on the distant horizon. Renovated in recent years, along with the neighbouring village of Montebuoni, it retains the atmosphere of a Tuscan hilltop village.
The swimming pool is shared between the 14 villas and is situated at the high point of the hamlet, surrounded by terraced lawns which enjoy full sun all day. There is a covered parking area at the bottom of the hamlet and the houses are reached by gently winding gravel paths and stones steps flanked by aromatic shrubs and herbs, whilst native oaks trees provide welcome shade.
The pool is 13 metres in length and 5 metres wide. There is also a hydro massage area. It is open all Summer from May to October.
The nearest tennis courts are in Radda, 12 km away. Florence is 40km away, Siena 25km and San Gimignano 50km.
