Location: Montebuoni

The village of Montebuoni is the perfect location for your dream holiday in this unspoilt corner of Tuscany. Situated along the crest of a gently rolling hill; wonderful, picture postcard views delight the eye in all directions. The private houses and apartments that make up Montebuoni blend in perfectly with the landscape of olive groves and vineyards.
Once a large estate producing wine and olive oil, the original stone buildings have been sympathetically restored to recreate the feeing of an authentic Tuscan village. Inside the houses are well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Most have their own private terrace or balcony and some have their own garden.
Arriving at Montebuoni cars are left in the car park under the shade of the olive trees. Gravel paths flanked by aromatic plants and beautifully landscaped gardens lead to the houses. Strolling through an area of parkland under the shade of oak, pine and cypress trees picnic tables and benches invite one to linger and admire the view before arriving at the pool area and the nearby full size astro-turf tennis court.
Montebuoni is the perfect place to unwind in the beauty of it’s natural setting, or, for the more energetic, to take time out for an early morning run, swim or bike ride. Take advantage of bread and milk delivered freshly to your door each morning. Just place your order at arrival check-in.
The historic towns of Siena, Florence and Arezzo are easily accessible by car. Local villages are a delight to discover. Stop for a cappuccino and visit the local grocery store in the nearby village of Lecchi to stock up on local wines  and fresh produce. There are several highly regarded, family run, restaurants within a short drive.
This area of Chianti is the home of the Gallo Nero Chianti Classico wines. The vineyard of Castello di Ama, one of the regins prestigious small scale wine producers, is on the door step. Holiday makers at Montebuoni are warmly welcomed to the wine tasting sessions held there weekly during the summer.

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.
