Melo is a pretty villa for two, it has a large paved terrace outside. This is furnished with an iron table and chairs and shaded by a large umbrella. From here there are fantastic views of the Tuscan hills.
Inside there is a spacious open plan living area with plenty of light provided by the large glass and iron doors. This room has a comfortable three seater sofa. This can accommodate an extra person. It's done in typical Tuscan style with a terracotta floor and wooden beams and terracotta tiles for the ceiling. To the back of the room is a small hall with storeroom and a bathroom which is suitable for guests with limited mobility, as the shower has no tray and there is a handrail for the toilet.

Passing under a large terracotta arch there is the kitchen area which has a wooden round central table that can be opened up to seat 8 people. Against the back wall is the kitchen unit fully equipped and includes gas hobs, oven and large fridge with freezer.


Off the room is a large double bedroom furnished in lovely warm yellow colours. The room has a large wooden wardrobe and chest of drawers. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.

Location: Concadoro

Concadoro is a wonderfully well maintained working farm which produces oil and Chianti wine. The property is composed of the owners villa and about 400meters away from it are the five rental apartments.

To one side of the property, a short walk away from the apartments. It has pretty views of the wine estate with its vineyards and olive groves, then onto the forested Chianti hills beyond. Around the pool is a lovely sundeck to enjoy the warm Tuscan sun.
The well restored property of Concadoro is a single building housing all 5 apartments. Surrounding the entire building is a large paved terrace, on which each apartment has its own private table with chairs and umbrella. These outside eating areas are not secluded and can easily see their neighbours.
This lovely Tuscan farm is just a short distance from a Chianti road between Poggibonsi and Castellina in Chianti. This road is at a higher level than the buildings. Some noise can be heard from the occasional cars that pass.

Pool Info

The pool is a short walk away from the apartments. It is a large pool surrounded by a lovely paved sun deck dotted with sun beds and umbrella from where the wonderful views of the property vineyards, olive groves and the forested hills beyond can be admired.
The pool is 16x6 meters and 1.2 meters deep. Between these two there is a lovely water feature. It is open from May to October and is used only by the apartments of Concadoro.

Pros This furnished villa has all of the basics requirements one comes to expect for a self catering apartment, that said, the kitchen utensils etc. can do with a bit of an update/refresh and perhaps some small additions such as bbq equipment will be good. Not that is was an issue we mostly visited the plethora of great restaurants in the area and didn't really do self catering other than for breakfasts/snacks.

Pros (tailored to our 1br villa and generally)
- stunning location in chianti/breathtaking views from property
- great shared pool area (when not overly crowded - which didn't happen too often during our stay)
- there is a lovely little Restaurant just minutes walk away called Pestello
- apartment was very spacious with washing machine, dishwasher and everything else as advertised
- Wifi is great all around the property. As I had to work some mornings this was very handy
- This apartment is also suitable for those with less mobility (i.e. No steps), not that this was a consideration for us but may be for others
Cons Cons - lacks some kitchen goods such as wine glasses, ice trays and stuff to bbq (nothing significant and I'm sure if we asked Alessio would arranged this) - this specific apartment doesn't have its own private terrace area (it didn't advertise that it had) - bedroom doesn't have a window/only a door - fans in the bedroom would have been good - a second couch/chair in sitting room would be a welcome addition

Pros Als Ausgangspunkt für Touren ins Chianti Gebiet ist es wunderbar. Sehr schöne Aussicht, gut erreichbare Osterien, etc. Der Wein des Agritourismo Concadoro, ebenso das Öl ist ausgezeichnet. Der überaus freundliche und hilfsbereite Verwalter Alessio war uns ein guter und sehr engagierter Gastgeber. Auch bei schlechtem Wetter fühlt man sich hier wohl.
Local attractions Siena war wiederholt wunderschön, der Skulpturenpark war beeindruckend, die Bedienung in der kleinen Osteria oberhalb ist ausgesprochen freundlich, in der Trattoria am Castello in Castellina haben wir ausgesprochen gut gegessen, etwas weiter entfernt die heißen Qullen in San Felipe , eigentlich jede kleine Kirche, wenn man das mag.

Pros Nous avons aimé la vue, l' exposition, la location spacieuse et agréable.
Bonne isolation entre les appartements mitoyens.
La situation centrale de Concadoro par rapport aux différents sites touristiques.
La disponibilité et la gentillesse d' Alessio qui se débrouille très bien en français.
Cons Le bruit avec l' appartement situé au-dessus. Le manque de chaînes de télévisions françaises, même si l'on ne vient pas pour ça.
Local attractions Les nombreux petits villages tout autours de Concadoro, leurs marchés et boutiques typiques.

Pros La maison qui accueille les différents logements est grande ce qui fait que chaque groupe a sa propre terrasse. La vue est magnifique et la piscine très agréable. L'appartement est bien équipé. Internet est disponible près du bureau d'accueil.
Cons Il serait peut-être intéressant qu'il y ait des guides de marches ou de promenades à VTT à l'accueil pour montrer tous les beaux coins de la région. Une voiture est indispensable car le 1er village avec bars, restaurants et mini market est à 6km environ et c'est un peu vallonné. Le pret de vélos serait aussi une bonne idée.

Pros Logement très fonctionnel, spacieux sans climatisation mais en laissant les épais rideaux fermés nous n'avons jamais eu trop chaud.
La piscine est très agréable! Le paysage sublime, on se sent seul au monde loin de tous les touristes. Le propriétaire est très sympa.
Cons Le seul point négatif: loin du centre ville on ne peut pas y aller à pied.

Pros Bereits beim Ankommen fühlt man sich zu Hause, nach der herzlichen Begrüßung durch Alessio und schon nach dem Weg zu Concadoro - in perfekter Lage, zwischen Olivenhainen und Weinbergen. Und zu fast allen wichtigen Zielen der Toscana nur ein Katzensprung. Das Haus ist sehr hübsch und gut ausgestattet mit sonniger Terasse.
Auch gut als Ausgangspunkt für Radtouren geeignet.
Über den noch nicht ganz fertigen Poolbereich kann man getrost hinweg sehen, Concadoro wird nächstes Jahr ein noch schöneres Schmuckstück sein!
Cons Dass wir nicht länger bleiben konnten ;-)
Local attractions La Pestella gleich 500 Meter von Concadoro La Torre in Castellina Dei Dottori in Castellina Ausflugsziele: Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena, Florenz, Radda (wunderschöne Radtour)
