Montebuoni with pool and tennis
Discover the enchanting Tuscany in central Italy. On a ridge overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside with its olive groves and vineyards, lies the undiscovered Montebuoni, a group of private villas and apartments surrounded by olive groves and beautifully manicured gardens and courtyards.

The large swimming pool is to one side of the hamlet, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, with views of the rolling hillside in the distance. This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt heaven. The swimming pool is 15 metres x 7.5 metres and is accessed by ladder. There is also a small children’s swimming pool, which has a constant depth of one metre. Both pools are open from April to October (weather permitting)
Montebuoni was once a large estate producing wine and olive oil.  It is these original buildings which have been restored and modernised to a very high standard, whilst still maintaining many of the original features, which make Montebuoni such a great place to stay.  All the properties are fully furnished and well equipped, most have their own private terraces or balconies and some have their own garden.
Montebuoni has its own full size astro-turf tennis court located in the grounds near the pool area. There is a small typical Chianti village a short walk from the hamlet, with a grocery store which stocks all the basics, plus local wines, oils, hams and cheeses. Visit the next door vineyard Castello di Ama one of the Chianti regions finest wine producers for a wine tasting session.

For those who wish to explore the areas major cities and museums the hamlet is ideally located for day excursions to Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Pisa as well as discovering the smaller unknown Tuscan villages. Check out the events calendar on our home page to see if there are any festivals or events taking place that you can enjoy during your stay.

Pros I liked the big space that the apartment had to offer - you could not have received better value for money. The kitchen is also very well equipped which is handy for cooking. Overall, the facilities that the apartment offers are second to none.
The location is also idyllic and exceptionally peaceful, and the wine tasting trip that the Hamlet organised is a definite must do during your time at Montebuoni.
Cons The location made our trip quite difficult as we felt a bit restricted. The scenery is beautiful but the whole overall location was a bit too remote for us. Our holiday involved an awful lot of driving. There was a lack of local amenities and even popping out for a pint of milk is a journey that is longer than it should be. The pool is nice, but is difficult to enjoy as there is are so many mosquitos that make it almost unbearable. I would have also preferred it if the linen in the apartment was changed during the week.
Local attractions We loved the town of Radda in Chianti - it is so pretty and clean and has a lot to offer. Our favourite restaurant was Pizza Pie - a place where they give you a pizza so large that not even two people can finish it! Siena is really near by too, and that is great for food, shopping and culture. The Duomo is so beautiful and wonderful to look at. However, we advise to get there early to find a parking space! Lastly, the breathtaking views are the main attractions surrounding Montebuoni.

Unfortunately, there were an extraordinary amount of mosquitoes and flies in the area due to the weather conditions.

Pros Wir waren nun schon zum 3. Mal in Montebuoni. Die Anlage ist wunderschön gelegen, von hier aus sind viele Touren durch die herrliche Toskana möglich, alles ist sauber und gepflegt - einfach zum Wohlfühlen. Wir kommen jederzeit gerne wieder.
Cons Die Zeiten für die Nutzung des Pools sind sehr eng begrenzt. Wir haben viele Ausflüge gemacht und wenn wir, was meistens der Fall war, nach 18.00 Uhr zurückkamen, durfte der Pool schon nicht mehr benutzt werden. Eine Verlängerung bis 22.00 Uhr wäre sehr wünschenswert.
Local attractions Siena, San Gimignano, Kloster St. Galgano, Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Abbazia di Sant'Antimo! Montepulciano, Montalcino, Wanderungen entlang des Flusses Merse Restaurant Malborghetto in Lecchi - sehr zu empfehlen! Casanuova di Ama mit einer üppigen, sehr leckeren Weinverkostung in wunderschöner toskanischer Atmosphäre!

Pros Everything - we had such a wonderful holiday! Bell'Aria is well appointed and comfortable and Montebuoni is everything we wanted from our holiday: it has a beautiful pool and outdoor space, it is close to some lovely towns to visit as well as near enough to Florence and Siena for great day trips. I would highly recommend it and certainly consider coming back.
Cons The only thing that I felt was a shame was that Bell'Aria doesn't have any outdoor space - I knew this when I booked but seeing so many other people sitting outside made me realise that next time I would prefer something where I could sit outside in the evenings.
Local attractions We visited and revisited Castellina in Chianti to go to the amazing Antica Delizia for its ice cream.

Pros Voor de prijs een prima appartement. Prima uitgeruste keuken, goed sanitair, fijne slaapkamer.
Montebuoni is prachtig onderhouden en ligt op een zeer rustige plaats in de Toscaanse heuvels. Het is mooi om te ervaren hoe stil het 's nachts kan zijn: geen autoverkeer, geen stadsgeluiden, geweldig! (Overigens: voor mensen die wat vertier in de directe omgeving zoeken is het dus niet echt geschikt).
Zwembad was ook tiptop in orde.
Cons Niets. Vantevoren hadden we al ingeschat dat het een ietwat donker appartement zou zijn en dat klopte. Dat zou overigens prima te verbeteren zijn met wat sterkere verlichting. De badkamer is goed, douchecabine is wel aan vervanging toe.
Local attractions De wijnproeverij was erg goed en gezellig. Radda in Chianti is een leuk dorpje op zo'n 20 autominuten rijden. Tip: vanuit Radda rijden bussen naar Siena en Florence voor ca. 4 euro pp enkele reis (met uitzondering van de Italiaanse vakantieperiode). Prima verbindingen en geen parkeergedoe. Wij vonden daarnaast Castellina ook een prachtig plaatsje.

Pros Die Anfahrt Beschreibung ist mit Google übersetzt. Das versteht keine Sau. Die Anlage nach der Dämmerung zu finden ist ein Abenteuer. Bitte eine Taschenlampe mitbringen.
Cons Die wenigen Anweisungen an der Toilette und dem Pool wurden Deutsch und Englisch geschrieben. Alle weiteren Informationen ausschließlich auf Italienisch und Englisch. Mehr als die hälfte der Gäste war dabei Deutsch. Von einem Service kann nicht die Rede sein. WIFI in der Anlage- ein Schnäpchen für schlappe 20, 00 Euro pro Woche, leider kein Empfang. Vorher angekündigte Aktivitäten wurden vor Ort nicht angeboten. Fazit: wer die absolute Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit sucht ist hier bestens bedient. Die Restaurants und die "Supermärkte" sind nach erschwerlicher Fahrt errreichbar. Das "Team" vor Ort bietet definitiv keinen Service. man muß dem Man alles erdenkliche aus der Naße ziehen um ein bísschen voran zu kommen. Abgesehen davon dass man gar keine Infos auf Deutsch bekommt.
Local attractions Die Anlage liegt in der tiefen Pampa . Wenn man die Zivilisation sucht, braucht man an die Stunde Fahrzeit die zu erreichen. Daher soll man ganz gut überlegen ob ihm die Ruhe oder die Geselligkeit wichtiger ist. Für mich ist es hier definitv zu ruhig gewesen.

What were the highlights of your stay?    Hearing Cuckoos all day. Wild flowers.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Met expectations. Clean & adequate. Of a reasonable standard. Bed was comfortable. My particular apartment only had 2 windows so lacked natural light (I did realise that from the accommodation plan though).
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Shower head rail come away from wall when I touched it.
The washing machine didn't work (drum belt gone).
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? I couldn't get the TV to work. I searched for instructions (ended up not watching it at all) - it was possibly that it needed new batteries in the remote control (it seemed to be stuck on standby). A manual or instructions would have been much appreciated.
It was quite a few days before I found somebody to sort the shower problem out but they did get it fixed that day. The people I saw were very helpful.
It was great that there was a computer in the office but free wifi would have been even better.
