Description & Details of Montefili
Our farm is located in the heart of the region of Chianti Classico near Greve,Tuscany, looking out over Montefioralle, a splendid medieval village, in an untouched natural setting. It is on the top of a hill (1400 feet above sea level) with a magnificent 360 ┬░view. Even in the summer it stays cool, with a fresh breeze
The property includes a cluster of four houses that once served as a stopping place on the ancient salt road (there's still a trace of the road in the path which goes by the pool) as well as approximately 10 hectares (20 acres) of land, including four hectares of vineyards, an olive grove, a stand of cypress trees, meadow and woods. When we bought the farm in 1994, it was semi abandoned and the buildings were in terrible disrepair. Since then we have dedicated ourselves to restoring them as closely as possible to their original form, using only local and environmentally compatible materials and personally supervising every phase of the restoration down to the last details
We have now finished restoring three of the four buildings of the original settlement: we live in the largest where also a large apartament for our guests has been made.
We've made also two apartments out of the second, the former storehouse.
The third, once a cottage, has been converted into another apartment.
The last one is a "studio"isolated over the hill
We added also a large swimming pool to the complex.
The farm is really perfect for tuscany holidays near Flerence
This is the perfect place to stay if you are interested in visiting areas like Siena, Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano and Pisa. You will also find that it is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine, while sitting on the private garden or terrace area provided for each villa and enjoy the studendous scenery found 360┬░ around the villa.
