Casa Lecchi is a spacious two bedroom apartment facing on to the main piazza of Montefiorile which is a small hamlet of 14 villas situated in a quiet position in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine producing area.
The hamlet is on a hillside and the houses enjoy stunning views over the vineyards and olive groves and across wooded hills in the distance. Casa Lecchi is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful area or for enjoying relaxing days by the pool.
Recently restored, using local stone and materials, it maintains the atmosphere of a Tuscan hilltop village with the advantage of features such as windows and doors larger than usual allowing light and air to enter the property.
Casa Lecchi is about 93 square meters and it sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Internet WI-FI is available for an extra price.
Some steps lead you to the entrance door and opens straight into the living and dining area. To the left is the fully equipped kitchen with granite fittings. There is a small fridge with a small freezer section. A wooden dining table and chairs and the comfortable sofas create a pleasant indoor space to relax. The house has traditional wooden beamed ceilings and tiled floors throughout.
From the living room, French doors give you direct access to the private garden. Outdoor dining furniture invites you to spend time here surrounded by shady trees and aromatic shrubs.
The master bedroom with double bed, has direct access to the garden. The adjacent bathroom also houses the washing machine. The second bedroom is at the other side of the living area and is furnished with two single beds. This room overlooks the square. The second bathroom with shower is adjacent to this bedroom.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL
The swimming pool is located in a high position behind the hamlet and it is surrounded by sunny terraced lawns. The pool is 13 x 5 meters and it has a Roman staircase and hydro massage. The pool area is fenced and screened from the access road by tall hedging. It is open all summer from May to October, if the weather allows. It is shared with all the guests of the hamlet.
There is a covered parking area at the bottom of the hamlet and the houses are reached by gently winding gravel paths and stone steps flanked by aromatic shrubs and herbs, whilst native oak trees provide welcome shade.
The open piazza in the centre can be enjoyed by all the residents and it is flanked by one hundred year old olive tree. This is a strategic point to appreciate the views during the day or for a stroll under the starry skies at night. Montefiorile is an ideal base for exploring the local villages, the castles of Brolio or Meleto and enjoying wine tasting in one of the neighboring vineyards.
