The Tuscany region

Ideally located for visiting the large cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano as well as discovering the smaller Chianti towns and villages. Worth seeing is the famous Palio of Siena which takes place in July and September with many of the locals dressing in medieval costume.

The Autumn means its harvest time which is usually a good excuse to have a festival. October/November is when the truffles start to arrive - the area around Montebuoni produces the white truffle - considered by those who know to be the finest of the funghi. This is then followed by various Christmas markets with the opportunity to pick up some unique gifts.

Gaiole in Chianti

One of Italy's national monuments 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.

Montefienali high point is the perfect place for its twin swimming pools. There is a 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs pool and a small children’s swimming pool 1 mtr deep - pools are open from April to October. Sun beds and umbrellas furnish the surrounding garden and terraces to provide a great place for basking in the sun while taking in the stunning vista of the hamlet and hilltop villages beyond.

A selection of accommodation of individual cottages in an isolated location with terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and traditional-style furniture, creating an appealingly traditional ambience that offers a private terrace/garden to enjoy the Tuscan hills while sun bathing or dining outdoors.

Every Sunday during July and August there is music and dancing at Monteluco, which is 4km away from Montefienali.

The nearest restaurant is 5km in the village Starda, and the nearest village for shopping is 12km in San Gusme' while the Chianti towns of Gaiole and Radda are 15km and 22km respectively.

Gaiole in Chianti

Situated on the road ss408, from Siena to Montevarchi.

Gaiole in Chianti owes its development to its position in the valley where an important market for the local populations was centered around the year 1000.

Its name likely comes from "gaggiolo" used to indicate a large forest.

Gaiole today

The area surrounding Gaiole can easily be divided up into outings featuring the abbeys and parish churches or the castles and hamlets.

The oil and the wine found in Gaiole in Chianti today are the jewels of its agriculture and local economy.

Places of interest

Castello di Brolio

The Brolio Castle is truly spectacular and was so even after its neo-gothic transformation that took place in the second half of the 19th century.

The history of the Brolio Castle begins in the latter part of the 12th century. Its name is tied to the family of the Ricasoli Firidolfi who took sides with Florence against Siena. The Castle was invaded by the Sienese in 1252.

The Castle was altered and transformed over the years before the definitive 19th century version realized by Baron Bettino Ricasoli. Today you can visit the interior, the neo-Gothic Saint Jacop's Chapel, the observation deck and the palace with its beautiful tapestries.

San Gusme

When approaching from Castelnuovo Berardenga the hamlet is reached through the Siena Gate. The immediate impression of a old fortified medieval hamlet is strengthened by the miniature-like streets and the piazza which provides housing for only a dozen or so inhabitants.The 'Lodo di Poggibonsi' confirmed S.Gusmè to be in the territory of Siena as it lies on the border of the Florence and Siena territories. It is surrounded by walls and overlooked by the Florentine castles of Brolio and Cacchiano making it a charming hamlet to visit. The name derives from Cosmo, one of the Saints to whom the local church is dedicated (the other is Damian). The church, documented from 867, was originally in Campi Castle and was rebuilt in the nineteenth century.

A few kilometers from S.Gusmè are the notable archaeological sites of Campi and Cetamura. Also near S.Gusmè is the medieval hamlet of Villa a Sesta, so far untouched by tourism.
