Montefioralle, one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. It is an ideal location from which to enjoy real Chianti country life.
The village itself is virtually free of cars making it a wonderful place for children to run free. The ancient passageways, formerly the entrances to the castle, fascinate children (and adults, too) coming from abroad.
Here the houses are made of stones and the ancient streets climb through the village, creating a charming atmosphere. Some houses are inside the old towers that were part of the original medieval town. And vineyards stretch away in every direction round about and, for those who like a country hike, there are paths and dirt roads (the famous "strade bianche" of Tuscany) passing by renaissance villas, stone farmhouses and ancient parish churches (pieve).
