Both rooms are decorated in a traditional country style with wrought iron double beds, antique wooden wardrobes and complimentary occasional furniture. Both rooms enjoy delightful countryside views from the windows. The windows in the bedrooms are fitted with fly screens. The bathroom is recently refurbished and is bright and modern.

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 The villa was very roomy and comfortable for two people but would have been fine for four. We loved seeing the olive trees and vineyard off our terrace and one morning woke to see six deer running around outside. The scenery on the drive to the villa was even more spectacular than other trips we've taken to Tuscany.
Cons My husband preferred our new bed at home which is softer, but I had no problems. The location was a bit difficult to find the first night, and we got nervous as darkness approached, but we returned to the check-in site and got a better map which helped. We were rewarded with a brilliant red sunset as we arrived. After we set our GPS for the location we had no trouble finding it.
Local attractions Favorite restaurants: The Malborghetto in Lecchi earned all of the recommendations we had read on To-Tuscany. We liked it so much we made a reservation for the very next night. Other restaurants we liked were the Borgo Antico in Greve, the Grotta in San Sano and Le Vigne in Radda. Favorite vineyards and wine tastings/tours: Castello di Ama (near the villa), Felsina and Castello di Brolio (both near or in Castelnuevo Berardenga). Favorite sight: three cinghales (wild boar) crossing the road on our drive back to the villa, our last night in Tuscany.

Pros Montbuoni ist eine hervorragende Anlage und Lavanda liegt sehr schön und ruhig. Der Blick über die Wein- und Olivenhänge ist herrlich. Montebuoni ist immer ein Aufenthalt wert.
Cons Leider weisst die Wohnung einen gewissen Renovierungsstau auf (Preis/Leistungsverhältnis stimmt daher nicht so recht). Bei Interesse können Details benannt werden.

Pros Uitstekende locatie. Ook bij slechter weer erg gezellig en comfortabel (open haard, hangbanken). Voldoende ruimte voor 4 personen.
Cons 2 jaar geleden verbleven we hier ook een week. Sindsdien is er niet veel onderhoud gepleegd, hoewel dat wel tijd wordt; de verlichting moet beter en het terras moet gerepareerd. Een likje verf hier en daar is ook niet slecht. Dit hebben we bij het uitchecken ook besproken en werd direct genoteerd.
Local attractions Tja, wat niet? De natuur, de dorpen, de winkeltjes (en dan vooral de kruidenier in Radda), de steden, de restaurants.....je raakt hier nooit uitgekeken, als je ieder jaar terug komt is het iedere keer weer een belevenis.

Pros Die absolute Ruhe und die herrliche Aussicht.
Cons Das Haus war bei der Anreise in keinem sauberen Zustand. Das ist zwar relativ, jedoch im Vergleich zu anderen Ferienunterkünften war das so. Es war zwar eine Kaffeemaschine vorhanden, jedoch, wie meistens in Ferienunterkünften war diese dermaßen verkalkt, dass wir sie überhaupt nicht nutzen konnten!
Local attractions Ausflugsziele: Radda, Greve, und natürlich Siena. Ristorante: Malborghetto in Lecchi; Trattoria Grotta della Rana in San Sano; La Perla del Palazzo in Radda.

Pros La Lavanda ist ein Eckhaus mit einer grandiosen Aussicht auf eine wunderschöne toskanische Landschaft. Direkt im Blick liegt das Castello San Polo. Die Sonnenuntergänge sind sehenswert, insbesondere da die Sonne genau hinter dem Castello untergeht. Schön ist die große, gut ausgestattete Terrasse mit eigenem, durch Büsche abgetrenntem Gartenbereich.
Die Einrichtung ist toskanisch und funktional, teils mit alten Möbeln (Schränke), teils mit neuem Mobiliar (Sofa und Sessel). Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Man findet fast alles, was man braucht.
Erfreulich war der optional zu buchende morgendliche Frühstücksservice mit Milch und Brot / Brötchen nach Wahl.
Das Schwimmbad ist schön gelegen, nie zu voll und bestens geeignet für Familien mit großen und kleinen Kindern. Das Gelände ist gut gepflegt.
Wir würden sofort wieder hinfahren und können La Lavanda nur empfehlen.

Pros Mooie, rustige omgeving. Voldoende privacy met ruim terras.
Het zwembad is prachtig gelegen met genoeg ligstoelen en parasols.
De woonruimte en de slaapkamers waren groot genoeg.
De Chianti streek straalt rust uit.
Cons Je moet het even weten, de wegen zijn niet goed onderhouden en erg bochtig, maar het went snel. De auto staat op een centrale parkeerplaats, dat heeft zijn voordeel (het park blijft rustig) maar ook zijn nadeel (met bagage verplaatsen).
Local attractions Goed gezellig restaurant in Lecchi. Voor een wandeling in de directe omgeving heeft u een gedetailleerde kaart nodig.

Pros Great open indoor and outdoor living - good size patios and great garden with stunning sunsets. Also really close to the pool so easy for the young kids. Comfortable furniture and well equipped. Booked through To-Tuscany who were brilliant and we can't recommend them highly enough.
Cons the electrics weren't great so we were glad we had a portable DVD player for the kids
Local attractions loved the Tuscany sculpture garden - great for the kids (aged 2 and 4) as well adults. Brilliant shade for a hot day as in a wood with picnic benches

Im überaus einladend wirkenden Wohnraum hält man sich sehr gerne auf.
Gut funktionierende Heizung und eine wunderbare Dusche. Warme Decken in den Betten, die gute Matrazen haben. - Wir waren im kalten März 2013 da (bei 6 bis 12 Grad).
Der Ausblick von der Terrasse ist sehr schön - und das, obwohl die Natur sich bei unserem Aufenthalt noch fast in der Winterruhe befand.
