Located in the heart of the Tuscan region of Italy you will find a charming village that will transport you to a time of simple Tuscan countryside living and beauty. This brief post will break down the key to discovering Montefioralle – in luxury and comfort.
Montefioralle is located a little less than an hour south of the metropolitan city of Florence and about an hour north of Sienna, this makes it the perfect stop on your way down the Tuscan trail. Surrounded by vineyards the city consists of small footpaths and there is almost a complete absence of any vehicles, making it the perfect place for an afternoon walk. We parked on the outskirts of the city and walked for several hours enjoying the Chianti countryside feel. Among the sites to check out in this thousand year old city is the birth home of famed explorer – Amerigo Vespucci as well as the beautiful town Church of S. Stefano.
After you have enjoyed a stroll through Montefioralle we suggest, demand really, that you stay a night or two in the area at the one and only Villa Bordoni - http://www.villabordoni.com/en/. Situated just minutes down the road it is one of the most outstanding rural Tuscan gems we have come across. There you can lounge in the beautiful gardens, enjoy the pool and finish your day with a guaranteed incredible meal at their Michelin starred restaurant - http://www.villabordoni.com/en/food-wine/restaurant.
Surrounded by vineyards, palm trees, hills and the beautiful Tuscan sunshine you will find yourself wanting to spend a few days in this special region of Tuscany. The resort is situated very close to Greve in Chianti which will provide a fun afternoon wandering the markets and getting a taste for the local flavors. Another fun tip is the check out the winery next-door for a tasting.
We will let the pictures do the talking for this post – don’t miss one of our favorite spots in one of the most beautiful regions in the world! We will be back soon with another post about our stop two for the dusty Tuscan wine trail!
