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.

Pros Wenn man es ruhig liebt, ist MonteBuoni das richtige Ziel,
die Ferienwohnung im EG ist wirklich für 2 Pers. geschmackvoll eingerichtet.
Der Blick auf die kl. Kapelle und das Interieur sehr schön
Austattung für einen ruhigen Urlaub ausreichend
Cons -nichts- wenn überhaupt ohne Auto geht gar nichts, da die Entdernung mindesten s 5 Km zum einkaufen oder Eessen gehen eine Fahrt von 20 min in anspriuch nehmen. Wer die Toskana liebt, kennt dies und geniesst
Local attractions Rhadda in Chianti, nett zum Drink am Nachmittag und zum Einkauf, gut zum Essen das weiter entfernte Castellina di chianti (gutes Eckrestaurant), Gaiole in chianti dto.zum Essen und auch eben die Sehenswürdigkeiten siena und Florenz. Siena ist leicht erreichbar (30Min./20 km in der Toskana) Bedenke bei allen Entefenrnung die Kurvenreichen Straßen(nur wer s nicht kennt)

Pros Beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The whole complex is very well maintained and a joy to experience.
Cons TV problems were never solved so missed important football games whilst listening to the enjoyment of guests in apartments all around us. Il Forno is tucked away with no view but this didn't really affect the enjoyment.
Local attractions Restaurant in Lecchi was superb. Radda was a great town to visit as well as a reliable place for vital provisions.

What were the highlights of your holiday? O too many to mention :-) But certainly the fact that I got proposed on our terrace, at Il Forno!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    It was the 2nd time we stayed at Il Forno. We are a couple with baby, so it's big enough!! Next time we might rent a somewhat bigger house because the baby gets bigger and then she can get her own room...
But the house is very clean, and cosy, with nice furniture and frames on the walls. And in the kitchen is everything you need!
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? There were more ants then last year, maybe because it was a lot warmer?
They tend to come in through the front door, so we had to clean with a lot of soap and salt some times.
Do you have any other comments? No!

What were the highlights of your holiday? Everything we needed was nearby, Florence wasn't that far, Siena, Radda was beautiful, Volterra, and Volpaia!!
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    A very beautiful place, the house was clean, there was privacy on the terrace, the swimming pool was very nice!
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? None.
Do you have any other comments? Maybe the fridge was a bit too small: since there is no big shop nearby, and we have a little baby who already eats fruits and vegetables, we always bought a lot at a time...
That's the only comment!!
