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.

Pros Man war sehr für sich. Das Häuschen ist für ein Paar von der Größe her ideal. Es ist sehr gemütlich. Die Aussicht gegenüber auf Weinberge und Sonnenuntergang war wunderschön.
Cons Das Geschirr/Besteck war zusammengewürfelt und etwas wenig. Die Geräusche von den Nachbarn waren teilweise laut. Es gab keine Auflagen für die Liegestühle, die wir somit kaum benutzt haben.
Local attractions In Radda gibt es einige schöne Restaurants. In Lecchi gibt es ein sehr schönes Restaurant, bei dem das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis jedoch nicht ganz stimmig ist. Ausflugsziele gibt es zahlreiche.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The relaxed atmosphere and the local scenary.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Clean and well maintained
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Only a snake in the swimming pool early one morning (no real problem, I got it out safely and that sort of thing can't be helped) and the mosquitoes - more irritating and inconveneient than the snake !!!
Do you have any other comments? A delightful location and good accomodation with an efficient service.
