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, and there are rackets and balls available. 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 The location was great. We were able to explore the Tuscan country side as well as Lucca, Pisa, and Montlechino. The flat had adequate living space. Would be perfect for two couples. Its probably a little much for 1 couple
Cons We went in November and were required to pay for heat, which would have been fine if it was more reasonable. We were given 4 units free which was supposed to cover bathing and cooking gas. We purposely did not use the heat (except when we showed up as they already had the heat on). We ended up with 9 units on top of the 4 by just bathing, doing 1 load of laundry and cooking on 5 days. We stayed in Venice for two nights so were not there for 3 days. I think the company needs to revisit this as you can find yourself spending as much on heating as the rental charge. I found most places offer free heating, so perhaps those would be a better option in the fall-spring.
Local attractions Lecchi, Rada, Grieve, Montlechino, Florence We loved Castelina- we had our best meals there!

Pros Die Lage ist traumhaft, da musste man gar nicht viele Ausflüge machen, da man die wunderschöne Toscana gleich zu Füssen hatte! Tennisplatz und Pool einwandfrei!
Cons Das Wohnzimmer war viel zu dunkel! Sicherlich ist dies bei den alten Häusern in Italien fast immer der Fall, doch hinzu kam noch die verdunkelnde Pergola, welche den Uebergang in den Garten bildet. Im Herbst ist dann das Wohnzimmer wirklich sehr sehr dunkel, vor allem wenn man wegen den kälteren Tagen teilweise im Wohnzimmer essen musste! Bei einem erneuten Aufenthalt in Montebuoni würden wir wohl einfach eine andere Unterkunft auswählen, denn ansonsten war alles perfekt!

Pros The villa was mostly great (see comments below re the bed) with plenty of room and good facilities. The pool was great and we particularly enjoyed the walk into Lecchi, which had a lovely little shop and a fantastic restaurant. It meant that we could eat in or out depending on what we felt like on the day. It is also near Rada and San Sano, both of which we loved.
Cons The bed in the downstairs room was horribly uncomfortable and squeaked loudly if you so much as moved a muscle, so sleeping wasn't brilliant. Also the villa gave us one towel each for a week, one set of bedding for a week, toilet paper for about half a day and one small rubbish bag. Also no pool towels, so make sure you take your own. This in particular let the villa down. It wouldn't cost much to leave spare supplies - particularly as they ask you to empty the bins regularly. The mosquitoes were also a problem and meant that the beautiful patio was off limits for much of our stay, even using the citronella coil provided and plenty of deet.
Local attractions The deli shop in the middle of Lecchi is so good - try the crisp bread and all the lovely cheese. We also loved Ristorante Malborghetto in Lecchi, the quality of the food is amazing. The local Trattoria in San Sano is excellent and the Gelato at the cafe next to the cinema in Rada is worth a visit.

Pros terrace, although it was overlooked so not very private
Cons more mosquitos than at Cassetta Con Vista, no tennis racquets - you should mention on the website to bring them, not just balls. Neither villa we stayed in had them, it's up to the owners apparently, this was not made clear and my children were disappointed - why not have some in the office to hire???
Local attractions Restaurants in San Sano, Lecchi and Volpia, horse riding at Vecchio Texas was quite far away but good, swimming in the river merse, near Brenna

what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Clean, well stocked for pots, pans, etc. , living space smaller than pictures indicated, but all in all, the accomodations were wonderful
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Not really
Do you have any other comments?

What were the highlights of your holiday? Beautiful scenery in Tuscany.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomodation was very satisfactory.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The washing machine on site was very slow which meant it took all day to do laundry. There was a limited supply of hot water in the villa.
Do you have any other comments? I would be happy to recommend Montebuoni and To Tuscany to my friends. Perhaps I can come to Italy again.
