This delightful one bedroomed  apartment is located on  the second floor of the main historic building. Centrally located, yet very private, it is an ideal retreat for a couple . Wonderful views across the Tuscan countryside can be enjoyed from the living room and bedroom. Stone steps lead up to a broad terrace. These steps are shared with two other apartments and Bella Vista enjoys exclusive use of its own outdoor dining table and chairs on the terrace.
The front door opens from the terrace and stone stairs lead up to the second floor. There is terracotta floor tiling and exposed wooden beamed ceilings throughout the apartment. A large skylight in the open plan living, dining and kitchen area means that this room is bright and airy. Two comfortable sofas are arranged around a coffee table in the living area. There is also a TV, CD player and iPod docking station.
The kitchen is fully furnished. Wooden units are topped with a granite work surface and house a built in electric oven, gas hobs, under-counter fridge with freezer section and a dishwasher. A glass topped table and four dining chairs complete the dining area. Views across the chapel rooftop to the Castello di San Polo in Rosso can be seen from the large window that has the benefit of mosquito nets.
The bedroom is reached down a short corridor. This room is very spacious. Gently sloping ceilings are painted white and a wall of fitted, wooden wardrobes are built under the eaves to give ample storage.  There is a double bed with painted wrought iron surround and a pretty painted dressing table and two leather armchairs in this comfortable room. The bathroom has travertine tiles and a large luxury shower. A skylight brings plenty of light into this room.

The outdoor terrace is a relaxing place to sit with a glass of wine at the end of the day and enjoy the view across the olive groves and vineyards that cover the hillsides surrounding Montebuoni.

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 The position of the hamlet was excellent. It was peaceful and relaxing - just what we needed. The pool facilities were great. Waking up to the beauty that remained until we went to bed. The perfect place to be.
Cons The only suggestion would be the benefit of air conditioning within the apartment.
Local attractions By far the best restaurant was Malborghetta in Lecchi - could not fault the service, quality of food or value for money. In addition wine tasting at Castello di Ama was an experience not to be missed.

Pros The views from the apartment were amazing and it was lovely to be able to sit out on the balcony to eat or drink and relax. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained and so was the swimming pool. Free use of the washing machine in the pool house was an unexpected bonus.
Cons When we arrived, unfortunately, the couple in the next door apartment were using the patio table and chairs. They maintained that it was for their use and that they had been using it all week. Fortunately, after a word with the management staff, the problem was quickly resolved with no ill feeling at all. However perhaps the whole problem could have been avoided if a sign or note were placed on the table itself to make it clear that use of it was restricted to those renting Bella Vista. A couple of extra pillows would have been useful too.
Local attractions Pizza Pie at Rhaddi in Chianti is a must. Great value, excellent food and good atmosphere. Be prepared to eat pizza the size of your table!

Pros Fantastic views across the valleys over the Tuscan countryside. Attractive set of buildings surrounded by well kept gardens full of lavenders and roses. Our apartment was cool and well furnished with a comfortable bed and modern shower room. We enjoyed the outside space which we had on the terrace with a patio table and two chairs. Ideal for an aperitif and meals. The staff were extremely helpful and quick to respond to requests.
Cons I hadn't realised that we shared the terrace with the neighbours to the right of us. Luckily, we got on but I thought that it would be more private. I also felt sorry for the couple to our left who did not have an eating area outside on the terrace. They tended to keep their door shut, otherwise I think we would have been looking straight into their living room. I think our terrace area could have done with an umbrella for shade (next door had rush matting to shade them) and cushions for the chairs.
Local attractions The trip to Siena was fantastic - seeing the preparations for the pallio horse race. The duomo there was stunning. The wine tasting expedition was great fun - happy memories of the lovely food - the best bruschetta ever! The walk down to Lecchi (though we did get lost) and the lunch at the Ristorante Malborghetto which was imaginative and delicious and very good value.
