A spacious 2 bedroom cottage opening onto the main piazza in Montefiorile, in the heart of the Chianti wine area. Large private garden and a shared swimming pool. Stunning views over the Tuscan countryside & a great base for exploring the area.
The property is full of character, with traditional high beamed ceilings and tiled floors throughout. 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.

I am a mother with 2 young children, age 10 & 13 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 10 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy and now also in France through my site - Bookings For You. I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
