Belvedere di San Donato is a lovely modern villa located just 4km away from the pretty stone Chianti town of San Donato. The property is completely fenced and not only has a private, large garden but also an olive grove providing you with the true Tuscan landscape. The villa has some of the most remarkable wide open views found in Tuscany.

The pool is located below the villa and it is fenced with a gate, making it perfectly safe for groups travelling with children. From here there are wonderful views of the Tuscan countryside dotted with towns and villages. In the distance it's possible to see the Apenino mountains behind Lucca.
Belvedere di San Donato has a beautiful covered terrace, surrounded by red brick arches and wonderful views. The terrace is furnished with comfortable sofas to enjoy the cool shade. Not far from the villa is a large stone barbeque. In front of the terrace there is a table seating up to 10 people ideal to enjoy meals al fresco.
Entering the villa you pass through a small hall, into the large, spacious and very airy living area. This large room has two comfortable double sofas and a triple sofa. To the far end of the room there is a huge wooden table that seats comfortably up to 12 people. Behind the table are two large windows with pretty iron security bars.
To the right of the room is a smallish kitchen that is fully equipped with gas hobs, oven, medium size fridge with small freezer, dishwasher and a large assortment of cooking utensils. There is a window overlooking the covered terrace.
Next to the kitchen, and accessed from the living area is a single bedroom with a comfortable bed and wardrobe. The window looks out onto the amazing views that surround the villa. Completing the ground floor is a small and adequate bathroom with shower and a little laundry with washer, iron and ironing board located below the stairs.
The open stairs with stone railing lead to a internal balcony on the first floor. The balcony overlooks the lounge. Immediately at the top of the stairs there is access to a large room with three single beds. This room is completed with a wardrobe.

On the property at the same level as the pool below the main villa there is a spacious annex. The little cottage has a lovely paved terrace furnished with table and chairs, and a small barbeque. Immediately off the terrace is the olive grove, through which the surrounding views can be seen. The effect is as if you are in the middle of the olive grove.

Pros Die Villa liegt an einer sehr schönen Lage mit super Ausblick. Die Loggia ist genial (Sonnenschutz für die Mahlzeiten) und der zusätzliche kleine Pool für die Kinder ist ideal. Der Coop ist sehr nahe und somit besteht die Möglichkeit, täglich einkaufen zu gehen ohne grossen Anfahrtsweg. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, wir wurden sogar zum Arzt begleitet.
Cons Die Bäder sind stark renovationsbedürftig und die Pools sollten öfters gereinigt werden (wir waren es uns bisher gewohnt, dass der Pool täglich gereinigt wird). Auch wäre es von Vorteil, wenn die Schlaglöcher auf der Zufahrtsstrasse aufgefüllt würden.
Local attractions San Gimignano und Siena

Pros the location, the seclusion, the views, the facilities particularly the 2 pools. It was roomy well equipped.
overall hard to fault the villa
Cons Internet needs to be resolved. Whilst it did not spoil our holiday it would have made life a little simpler We did have some minor problem with the property gates. I think one of the keys did not work these too well.( only 1 side worked sometimes withthe key) We suspect the annex may have a bat problem. We only went down there once and there was a smell of bat droppings. We actually saw a bat asleep in the shutters. I am not sure you would want use the annex to sleep in. It would be useful to have a more detailed information "book" about the villa i.e. what to do with Rubbish and recycling. Also how to use some of the appliances.
Local attractions we visited the restaurant on the right on the road into San Donato which was excellent. Also we visited the pizzeria in Castellina in Chianti. The first one on the the right. Again the food was excellent as was the service and setting. Very good value for money. Also the Black sheep hotel next to belvedere. The setting, staff and food were again excellent.

Thank you for your review. The owner has checked the WIFi and it is working. It sometimes needs rebooting when there is a problem. The annexe has been checked and cleaned on departure. The owner would have wished to have resolved any issues for you during your stay. Thank you for your feedback though - it is always very helpful.

Pros Lots of space, both outside and inside. Good location for day trips. Very nicely kept house and clean pool
Cons the lilly pond was not 25cm deep. It was 90 cm with a small edge/step down which was 25cm. Not very suitable for very young children (which we thought it would be...) but OK for our 4-yr old.
Local attractions restaurant la piazza, around 5 km from the house on the way to greve in chainti was perfect for lunch.

Pros The vistas afforded by the location were amazing. It was great to see the sun rises and the sun sets.
Cons The road into the villa was difficult to navigate because of all the major potholes. It was difficult to locate, even with a GPS, but we did it, much to the amazement of the owners. The outbuilding was a great space, except for the excessive number of bugs. I realize we were in the country, but something needs to be done about the bugs, including scorpions - sorry, but I had to mention it.
Local attractions It turned out that the villa was central to a number of towns, including Florence and Sienna. We used it as a focal point and visited Montepulciano, Greve, in Chianti, etc. There were more places to visit than we could imagine within an hour or two.

Pros It is very quiet and private, set well back from the road which is in any case not very busy. The nearest neighbour is about half a mile away. It is fully equipped and we lacked for nothing. The pool was a nice size for a private pool and we used it every day as the weather was fantastic.
Cons Wasn't anything we didn't like. It was a great holiday.
Local attractions The Osteria del Viandante is only a couple of miles up the road and proved to be an excellent restaurant, friendly service and good food.

Cons Not anything in particular.
Local attractions Radda, Castalina, small village of San Donato, Greve, Gaiole are all a few minutes driving distance and are all worth seeing. Antinori is just a 15 minute drive and is well worth a wine visit in their spectacular renovated winery. Livernano is another winery worth visiting.

Pros Gefallen hat uns einfach alles. Die Lage des Hauses ist einmalig schön. Man hat eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf San Donato und weit in die wunderschöne Toskana. Auf der Terrasse zu frühstücken, damit fängt der Tag schon traumhaft an. Wir haben schöne Tage am Pool verbracht, aber auch Ausflüge nach Florenz, Siena usw. gemacht, diese Ziele sind nicht weit von dem Ferienhaus entfernt sind.
Local attractions Florenz, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Motepulchiano, Pisa und alle kleinen "Dörfchen" in der wunderschönen Toskana.

Pros Die Lage war sehr schön über den Weinbergen. Vor der Terrasse des Nebengebäudes standen direkt die Olivenbäume. Dieses Nebengebäude eignet sich wegen des Klappsofas im Wohnraum sehr gut für eine Familie mit bis zu zwei Kindern, so dass das Haus dann auch 7 Erwachsenen und 3 Kindern Platz bietet. Das Wohnzimmer ist sehr geräumig mit riesiger Tafel. Der Pool war sehr schön und sauber, konnte wegen kühlen Wetters leider nicht genutzt werden, da nicht beheizt.
Cons Die Küche war für neun Personen nicht zu groß, aber sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Zufahrt (letzte ca. 900m) zum Haus war wegen Schlaglöchern im Schotterweg nichts für tiefergelegte Autos, bei der Abreise wurde allerdings mit der Reparatur begonnen.

Pros Die Lage, der wunderschöne Ausblick... die Ruhe..die Besitzerin ist super nett.
Cons Die völlig verschimmeltenFugen in den Duschen!!! Kaputte Glühbirnen in fast allen Räumen. Die Bezüge der Sofas hätten auch mal eine Wäsche nötig gehabt...Teilweise nicht genug Besteck..4 Löffel für bis zu 8 Personen. Die beiden Grills sind so verschmutzt.. und für unseren Geschmack nicht mehr zu benutzen. Und man sollte die Mieter vorwarnen das völlig unvermittelt die Besitzer auf das Grunstück fahren um den Pool zu reinigen... ist kein Problem, aber so geht das nicht!!! Das Haus ist wunderschön, nur etwas in die Jahre gekommen, mit wenigen Handgriffen könnte man das reparieren oder Dinge ersetzen.. und gut wäre es wieder.
