Holiday Villas and Small Hotels in Tuscany

Visiting Chianti, Tuscany

Dear Friend

Today I want to talk about the medieval Montefioralle Borgo, a wonderful town located in the heart of Chianti (between Siena and Florence).

 Montefioralle is probably one of the oldest towns in the area, as it is referenced in documents dating from 1000 AD, which speak of the ruling families who were probably from Lombardo.

The village, like most walls and castles of the time, was built on the highest hill in the area and offers visitors breathtaking views of the beautiful hills of Chianti.

 This village is one of my favourites in the area with its unique geographical location and the pretty streets. A walk through Montefioralle is like travelling back in time.

Its medieval streets adorned with flowers are so relaxing, especially delightful in the spring.

Near the village of Montefioralle, there are also many bars which produce excellent wine. In fact the Chianti area, where Montefioralle is located, is considered one of the best areas for wine production in Tuscany.

During my last visit, my friends and I participated in a great wine tasting at a bar called Montefioralle, eponymous with the village you can see here on the blog.

I hope as always that this information will be useful.

Best wishes
