You’ll find us in the heart of Tuscany, in the area known as the “Chianti towns”.
We're located in Montespertoli, a typical Tuscan town easily reached from all over the region.
This is a land of gentle hills dotted with vineyards that denote authentic Tuscan scenery. It is a fertile land, whose soil produces some of the world's most famous wines.
We're located in an area best experienced at the slow pace of bygone times and discovered with a real sense of adventure, as Mario Soldati, a gifted director and writer and a lover of food and wine, said, "Drinking a wine is not enough to realize its qualities. You need to head into the land, discover where it comes from, look at the hills, walk the paths."
Montespertoli extends an invitation that cannot be declined to raise a glass with its Chianti, taste its extra-virgin olive oil and strictly "saltless" home-made Tuscan bread, discover its gentle scenery and a town bursting with art, history and legend, and choose from the endless possibilities offered locally.
Our property "Casa Vacanze - il Tramonto sul Chianti" is composed by 2 buildings and can host up to 18 people.

######### LOCATION: ########
We are only 4 km from Montespertoli and 30 Km from Firenze, "Il Tramonto sul Chianti" is the right place to discover the Tuscan Countryside with his castles and historic cities.
The municipality of Montespertoli, which covers an area of 125.02 km2, is nestled in the lovely hills of Central Tuscany, part of the Chianti region. The main town stands at 257 metres above sea level, is 25 km from Florence and lies at an equal distance from the tourist towns of San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa and Volterra. The landscape is very varied and is marked by gentle hills and fertile land in terms of morphology and farming as the distinctive hills in the Val di Pesa, consisting of marine sediments, are regarded as some of the best land around. We can talk about a certain scenic unity, a distinctive "Chiantishire" landscape, which is created by relatively low altitudes (up to a maximum of 442 metres above sea level in the Lucardo area) and with the widespread presence of olive trees and vines. The town has a mild climate, albeit exposed to winds on all sides. The continuously sweeping breeze keeps the air fresh and healthy.
With its vineyards, wineries and Mostra del Chianti [Chianti Showcase], Montespertoli is one of the Tuscan wine capitals. In addition to oil and bread, the history of wine is one of the distinguishing and most renowned aspects of the whole area. The municipality is well signposted and boasts an array of eateries serving up typical Tuscan food throughout the area. There is a tourist information office and a top sports and tourism centre in the Molino del Ponte area, with football pitches, covered tennis courts, a five-a-side football field, clay pigeon shooting, indoor sports facilities, a pool, hotel and restaurant. The local geography lends itself to the organisation of cultural itineraries over several days. Of particular interest are the Museum of Sacred Art in the church of Pieve di San Piero in Mercato and the A. Bassi Picture Gallery in Piazza Machiavelli.
Each apartment has a separate entrance with its own private area.
The swimming pool, parking and garden are shared with other guests.

L'appartamento è molto centrale e perfetto per visitare le grande città della Toscana (Firenze, Pisa, Siena, Lucca) pero solo con una macchina :-) era un pecato che non abbiamo avuto abbastanza tempo per godere questo luogo... era molto pulito e grande. Spero a presto!!
So big, quiet and nice place. A good air conditioner, and a big, useful Kitchen. It's so pity we couldn't stay longer, or just all day long. Alberto was very nice, and helped us very much with tourist information. Strongly recommended!
we were in Alberto's appartment for 4 nights (phone number hidden). The house is located 3 km away from a small lovely town Montespertoly in Toscany. The house is very nice and clean, it has a great view and has all the aquipment needed. Alberto was very kind! we highly recommen the place
Alberto's place was a beautiful space in absolutely beautiful countryside. Alberto was an excellent and kind host. Our only issue was that without a car it was very challenging to get around and even get groceries. Thanks again!

About the Host, Alberto
We are Francesca and Alberto, two Florentine born and bred in this special place.
Our family bought this farm in the early Seventies and, through patient, loving and painstaking restoration, brought back to life what had been an abandoned ruin for years, over run by nature.
Here we have enjoyed some special moments and unforgettable summers and we have now decided to make this available to others: the loveliness of a slight breeze that rustles your hair on this hill all year round; in the winter, when it is never too cold, in the spring, with its intoxicating perfumes, in the summer, with its joys, and in the autumn, with its unforgettable colours.
You will be welcomed by our smiles and enthusiasm, our joie de vivre and genuinely Tuscan happiness to share, offering simple yet unique things.
Arm in arm with our husbands, Alberto and Giuseppe, and our children, Madeleine, Nzuzi and Henock, who happily run around the garden with our dog Camilla beneath the loving gaze of Grandfather Angelo, we take pride in suggesting trips, tasting sessions, places to visit, walks and anything else that you might need.
Our wish is to make your all dreams come true during your stay with us, so that you'll always remember your Tuscan holiday in the heart of the Chianti region, as well as the absolute Tuscan flavour of the place.
