in the valley dominated by the imposing shape of Montemaggio
next to Chianti vineyards, between fields of grain, sunflowers, vegetables gardens and vines
there is the “Monteriggioni Suite”,
ideal dwelling for a couple desiring to alternate between moments of intimacy
and cultural and eno-gastronomical itineraries.
A beautiful small stone house, located 300 meters from the historical hamlet of Abbadia Isola where you can find the abbey with... the same name, built in the year 1000 on the via Francigena, a restaurant and wine bar. Continuing 2km by foot on the antique via Francigena, you come to the Castle of Monteriggioni, whose suggestive outlines can also be seen from the house.
In the large garden with a grass field in the English style, protected by high hedges, lies the swimming pool, surrounded by fruit trees (plums, cherries, pears, apples, walnuts) and many ornamental plants. The pool, which is for the exclusive use of the guests of the house, is 11 meters long and 5 meters with, with a depth of 1.20-2.00 meters, with optimal water quality, and a diving board. It is illuminated from the inside for stimulating night swims.
Next to the pool is an external shower and a pergola, shaded by climbing plants, with a table and chairs, sun chairs and loungers. The whole area is covered by wifi.
The house is partially surrounded by a covered porch where you can find a table and chairs for an outdoor lunch or relaxing reading sessions.
Inside, there is a large living room on two levels, a couch corner with TV, SAT, hifi, bookcase e fireplace, an eating area with a large table, and an area upstairs with a couch from which you can se the city walls of Monterigginio through the two windows.
The kitchen, accessible directly from the porch, is equipped with microwave, convection oven, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, table and closet with washing machine, as well as a functioning portable barbecue.
The room has a comfortable double bed, chest of drawers and a large wardrobe; the bath has a shower cabin and a tub.
The little house is on the via Francigena, the antique pilgrimage road toward the holy land, recently resurfaced and connected to several medieval centers.
One can make excursions on foot or by bicycle on the paths marked by the C.A.I. (Club Alpino Italiano), over which our guest will have detailed maps.
