La Taverna was once the centre of activity of wine production on the Montebuoni Estate. Now restored to create a comfortable family home, many of the original architectural features have been retained, creating a unique setting in which to enjoy a family holiday in this unspoilt corner of Tuscany. With a large private garden you can choose to spend time outdoors relaxing or dining al fresco, or at midday escape the heat by retreating to the cool of the wine cellar that is now a large well appointed family living room.
The front door opens into a large and bright kitchen and dining room. This room has high stone built ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. Plenty of light enters from the large arched window that overlooks the internal courtyard. The kitchen to the left is fully fitted with dark wooden cabinetry and travertine work-tops. Equipment includes, built in electric oven, gas hob, large fridge with freezer section and a dishwasher There is also a separate breakfast bar and large wooden table and dining chairs.
To the right wide travertine tiled stairs lead down to the old wine cellar. The ancient vaulted ceiling is handcrafted from local stone and can rightly be considered a work of art in itself. Light enters from two light wells at below ground level. Travertine floor tiles and light paintwork mean that the room has a bright feel. Comfortable leather sofas arranged on a large rug in the centre of the room make a comfortable spot to relax with a book or watch the large flat screen television. A wooden bar and an open stone fireplace add to the welcoming atmosphere. There is also a sofa bed in this room. It is a very versatile room to use at any time of year.
The two bedrooms are on the ground floor level. Both have wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. The double bedroom is very spacious and has a door leading out onto the main village courtyard. It is furnished with a wooden double wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside reading tables. It has an ensuite bathroom with shower.
The second bedroom has wrought iron framed twin beds and a large built-in wardrobe. The window looks out onto the garden. It has the use of the nearby bathroom with shower.
The large garden to the front of the house is delightful and has a well-tended lawn to one side of the gravel path plus two paved terraces. There is a brick built barbecue and garden dining furniture on the terrace close to the house. The other terrace is in a sunny spot at the end of the garden where sun-loungers are set out. The garden is very private and screened by small trees and aromatic shrubs. Lovely views all around can be glimpsed through the greenery.

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 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!
