Bellaria is a lovely, well restored villa in the heart of the Chianti. It's just a few minutes drive to a local village. It's also possible to walk to the village through a forest. This wonderfully Tuscan villa boasts incredible views of the Chianti hills.
The main garden is to the back of the villa. Here there is the large pool and gazebo which look out to the fantastic views. The villa is on the quiet country road however it has extensive private land which is terraced with olive trees.
(pool photos will be updated as soon as possible)
Bellaria is composed of two independent apartments and a small self-contained cottage. The iron gates lead to a small paved courtyard in front of the main entrance to the two larger apartments. Tall cypress trees surround the terrace area.
The central door leads into a little entrance hall which is furnished with pretty antiques including a pony trap from the owner's family. Narrow steep stairs lead to the first floor. To the left at the top of the stairs, passing under a terracotta arch, is the fully equipped kitchen, this includes a fridge with separate freezer, gas hobs, an oven and dishwasher. In the centre of the room is wooden dining table with chairs. A large window looks out to the terrace outside the front door.
Off the kitchen is a spacious double bedroom. The bed has twin mattresses however cannot be divided into a twin room.

The sitting room leads to a twin bedroom simply furnished with a chest of drawers.  The windows have a magnificent view over the nearby village, Lecchi in Chianti, and of the hills beyond. There is an en-suite bathroom with shower, the small oval window also looks out to the views.
From the sitting area there is access to another large bedroom, furnished with a pretty iron double bed. This has twin mattresses but cannot be divided into a twin. The room has a large wardrobe, chest of drawer, an armchair and writing desk with chair. One of the two windows looks out to the excellent views of the Chianti.

Pros The setting is beautiful in the rolling Tuscan hills. The pool was lovely and the villa was quite spacious
Cons The equipment in the kitchens was very outdated! It was hard to cook big meals for 13 of us with the poorly equipped kitchens. The outside seating area could do with a bit of updating too. The outside metal table and chairs are fine but an area for evening drinks or some comfortable chairs would be a bonus.

Pros Wunderbare Lage und außerordentlich Aussicht und Fernsicht. Sehr gute Lage für Ausflüge in das Umland.
Sehr freundliche Schlüsselübergabe. Fabio, unser Verwalter, der uns zu jeder Zeit mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung stand.
Die Bürger von Lecchi sind sehr nett, wir hatten das Glück das zur Zeit unseres Aufenthalt das "Festa della carbonaia" statt fand.
Local attractions Ristorante Malborghetto, sehr gut aber etwas teuer und das Festa della carbonaia in Lecchi. San Donato, Florenz, Siena, Volterra. Ponzano und sein Metzger, Dario Cecchini.

Pros Our entire party was really impressed with the property itself and the magnificent views. The 2 large master bedrooms were particularly lovely. We liked the fact that there were en-suites all round. The kitchens were modern and were filled with all the things we needed. The pool was a delight, and all the garden furniture made for comfortable lounging! We all adored the manager and the cleaner. We got to meet the owners too... genuinely lovely and helpful people! A wonderful house in a magnificent location!!
Cons A few suggestions... the only dishwasher is in the upstairs kitchen, and this is the only kitchen of the total 4 that we never used because of it's location. The gravel drive made it quite difficult to get up in the cars, which skidded around on the stones. Minor things really...
Local attractions We were recommended a restaurant in nearby San Sano (it's the only one there in the small village so you can't miss it!) and it was LOVELY... the pasta with truffle oil was delicious! We really enjoyed visiting nearby Radda as well where we found some lovely little shops (many selling beautiful leather goods and several Italian kitchen ware shops) and many welcoming and tasty restaurants as well. For trips further afield, Sienna and Florence were of course a delight... but a long way on those windy roads!!

Pros The view, incredible, beautiful really unique. The little town of Lecchi near the house where you find everything for the house and for eating.
The swmming pool very secure for children and in front of the most beautiful view you can imagine.
Owners that are wonderful persons. we realy love this house
Cons It is arranged for 4 individuals appartments and not a big hose for a big family. In front of the house, where there is the most beautiful view of all italy, there is a little house... so you cannot see the view!!! It is really a pity
Local attractions We go much to Castellina in Chianti where there are all the commerce you need, a fantastic antiques botega with jewls very nice and sculptures where all is beautiful and refined. The butcher is also incredible, you can buy fantastic wine and olive oil, etc...
