This is probably the oldest part of Montebuoni, the ceiling of the cellar is extremely rare to find in living accomdation, vaulted ancient Tuscan stone work, a work of art.

Pros We loved the space it gave us, the well equipped kitchen, the character of the building especially the cellar and the garden and BBQ area. The peaceful surroundings were very conducive to relaxing.
The directions we received from To Tuscany were excellent so we had no problems finding the place despite it being late and dark.
Cons I found the mattress on the double bed too firm for my comfort and my husband's side of the bed was quite indented.
Local attractions We loved the scenery all around us, lots of lovely towns and villages. We enjoyed some great walks in the countryside. the wine tasting day was good fun and the restaurant in San Sano lived up to it's great reviews.

Stay: July 2013
Pros The standard of accommodation was very good and the gardens , pool and tennis court easy to use when we wanted and not crowded despite the entire hamlet being occupied.We had impressively rapid attention to our only complaint-lack of a reading light in the main bedroom (we got 2 better new ones) and no BBQ tools.Both were rectified within the day.
The position on a ridge is fantastically picturesque- you can even see Siena on a clear day!
We could drive to most places for sightseeing (Florence, Siena, etc)
Cons The (new) mattress was rock hard- I didn't actually manage to sleep through the night.50% of the family(myself and one son in a single bed in the other room) couldn't sleep comfortably, the other 50% were fine!So if you know you are sensitive in this way beware!

Pros I loved having so much space, and a dishwasher was a godsend! having 2 bathrooms was also very user friendly. The house was very well equipped throughout and I loved the sense of history and uniqueness of the building.
Cons The refridgerator door didn't close properly so that was a nuisance. I would have liked a view as these were stunning all around the Borgo - but would chose a different situation another time. Also the bed mattress was badly worn so uncomfortable.
Local attractions Castello Brolio - had fab meal and wine-tasting . Local restaurant in Lecchi also v good and enjoyed Gaole in Chianti for food shopping.

Pros De heuvels privacy en zwembad. De ruimte in het huis.
Cons Dat het in de middel of nowhere lag en dan nog een beetje verder. Voor alles een auto nodig. Zou leuk als er op locatie klein winkeltje was en een terrasje voor een koffietje. Kan je als je wilt ook makkelijker kontakt maken met andere gasten ook voor de jongeren.
Local attractions Toscane en chianti zijn prachtig. Radda is leuk is 15 min. Lecchi op 10 min heeft 1 klein schattig supermarktje en een tentje waar heerlijke cappuchino wordt. Sienna is 45 min. Florence 1 uur. Sain gimignano is 1,5 uur en volterra nog iets verder.

Pros de locatie is schitterend, zwembad met tennisbaan is leuk en de broodservice was een goede noodzaak.
Cons Het 5e bed stond niet klaar, de woonkamer beneden rook muf naar kelder, maar hebben we ook niet nodig gehad omdat het 5e bed bij een andere slaapkamer geplaatst kon worden. De afstand naar Radda, het leuke dorpje waar je heerlijk kan eten en boodschapjes doen, was zeker 15 min rijden over een zeer kronkelig weggetje.
Local attractions eigenlijk waren ze bijna allemaal lekker en goed
