Passing under the exposed brickwork of an original archway the bedroom is reached. This pretty, country-style room is furnished with a double wrought iron bed and also a matching single bed, making Casa Barbara a good choice for couples with a child. Through a second archway is the en-suite bathroom with shower.
The outside terrace is furnished with a dining table and chairs; the perfect spot to sit and relax with a glass of local wine whilst the sun sets over the distant hills.

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 Das Apartment ist sehr geräumig und die Küche sehr gut ausgestattet. Auch im Sommer ist es im Apartment angenehm kühl (man benötigt keine Klimaanlage).
Das Anwesen ist sehr schön und gepflegt. Die Aussicht ist sehr schön. Der Brötchenservice hat sehr gut funktioniert.
Cons Auf der Terrasse hat man keine Privatsphäre, da diese genau an dem Hauptweg liegt. Da das Apartment nur eine Fenster und die Eingangstür hat, ist es sehr dunkel.

Pros Prachtige ligging en omgeving.
Cons Naar onze smaak heel erg rustig op het parkje. Als het weer het toeliet het zwembad te gebruiken waren we meestal de enige gebruikers. Het terras bij Casa Barbara hebben we, ondanks het (soms) mooie weer, niet kunnen gebruiken omdat dit pal op de wind ligt,
Local attractions Montebuoni licht gunstig in het Chianti gebied en is een uitstekende uitvalsbasis om steden als Siena en Arresso te bezoeken.

Pros Sehr schönes kleines Appartment aber für 2 Erwachsene und ein Kind völlig ausreichend.
Wie hier schon jemand geschrieben hatte es ist wirklich sehr dunkel, da es nur ein Fenster und eine Tür nach außen hat, dise hat aber auch den enormen Vorteil es ist sehr kühl.
Die Terase an der Strasse ist sehr klein aber zum essen und lesen okay.
Man wird natürlich schon etwas neidisch den die anderen Appartments außen rum haben alle einen Garten.
Local attractions Gaiole und Radda siend die nächsten Orte wenn man mal Lecchi nicht beachtet. Der nächste Supermarkt der etwas größer ist in Radda oder einen nummer kleiner in Gaiole. Wobei natürlich in Lecchi auch ein kleiner Laden für den täglichen Bedarf ist, allerdings zu Fuß ist hier keiner runter gegangen.

Pros Appartement met karakter....goed ingericht....tweepersoonsbed wat goed ligt....keuken compleet en goed ingericht...binnen heerlijk koel.
Cons Zéér gehorig....veel lawaai van de 2 bovenliggende appartementen en links aangrenzend appartement. Je kon de bewoners van deze appartementen letterlijk verstaan....door de betonnen vloeren last van schuivende tafels en stoelen. Wij hebben dit als heel hinderlijk ervaren. Terrasje te klein en hier ook weinig privacy, doordat terrasje direct aan het pad ligt, waar de bewoners van de overige appartementen steeds langs moeten.
Local attractions Ristorante Malborghetto in Lecchi: sfeervolg en goed restaurant tegen een goede prijs. Restaurant in San Sano: prima en goed restaurant Radda is een leuk plaatsje.

Pros Schöne ruhige Lage. Sehr nettes Personal. Brötchenservice war eine tolle Idee. Sehr nette Zusammenstellung an Gästen aus ganz Europa.
Ausstattung der Wohnung wirklich sehr gut. Sehr schöne Orte in der Umgebung. Uns gefiel Radda sehr gut. Schöne Ausflugsmöglichkeiten nach Siena, Monteriggioni, usw. Würden jederzeit gerne wieder kommen.
Cons Lage schon etwas abseits, dafür aber auch schön ruhig. Um Einzukaufen muss man auf jeden Fall ins Auto sitzen, nicht immer angenehm bei +36°C.
Local attractions Als alter "Assassins Creed" Spieler war der schönste Ausflug Monteriggioni. Die Restaurants in der Umgebung die wir besucht hatten, waren durchweg alle gut. Das ist wohl eher eine Preisfrage.
