La Vigna is a traditional Tuscan stone built house occupying a quiet corner at the end of a small terrace. It has it's own private garden furnished with terraces and private Jacuzzi and shares a border with the neighbouring vineyard Castello di Ama, one of the Chianti regions finest wine producers. There are terracotta flooring and terracotta ceilings throughout La Vigna.

The accommodations is arranged over two floors with oak beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors throughout. The main entrance leads directly into a large comfortably furnished lounge, including  two arm chairs, TV Sat (news only) with DVD, CD player and open fireplace.


Doors lead off the lounge to the gardens, and the well equipped kitchen which has an electric oven, gas hobs, a large fridge with freezer section, a dishwasher and dining table and chairs.

A spiral staircase leads from the kitchen up to the landing area where the bathroom with shower and two bedrooms one double one twin bedded are situated. Both bedrooms have wonderful views over the neighbouring vineyard and the hillside beyond.
The large garden is stocked with mature shrubs and fragrant flowers from the Tuscany region, surrounding a furnished sun terrace with uninterrupted views across the countryside. Alternatively for those leisurely long meal times 'al fresco' or for those wishing to take a break from the heat of the day there is a second covered terrace with dining table and chairs.
La Vigna has the added advantage of a private Jacuzzi exculsive to guests of La Vigna. The owners have carefully considered the position of the Jacuzzi to maximise the view of the spectacular, surrounding Chianti countryside. The decking at the edge of the Jacuzzi is the perfect place to sit and star gaze in the evenings. The Jacuzzi is for four people, open all year round and can be heated for an extra charge.

There is a furnished sun terrace in La Vigna's private olive grove.

Both bedrooms can be made into twin on request.

Location: Montebuoni

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. Check out the events calendar on our home page to see if there are any festivals or events taking place that you can enjoy during your stay.

Pros Ein zauberhafter Ort zum Entspannen und Wohlfühlen!
Cons Wir hatten anfangs Probleme mit der Stromversorgung: Man darf immer NUR EIN EINZIGES elektronisches Gerät benutzen. Leider ging die Spülmaschine während unseres Aufenthalts kaputt. Sie wurde aber 9m laufe der zweiten Urlaubswoche durch eine neue ersetzt - und zu zweit macht das Spülen per Hand ja nicht so viel aus …
Local attractions Wir fanden die Orte Pienza und S. Gusme ganz bezaubernd.

Pros The atmosphere was amazing! We felt like we had our own private villa in the countryside! The view was amazing. We appreciated the jacuzzi after days of endless walking and the quiet. It was very peaceful and quiet!
Cons Only the inconvenience of not having an office on site and having to drive in to Radda to check in. But after going to the office, they were extremely helpful so it wasn't that big of a deal.
Local attractions We absolutely love Radda in Chianti and also San Gimignano!!! Both cities were highlights of our trip! Favorite of all was our cooking class at Montagliari winery!!!! Highly recommended! We love Tuscany!

Pros Die tolle Lage mit prachtvoller Aussicht, die unvergleichliche Ruhe, die gute Verfügbarkeit des Tennisplatzes und des Swimmingpools. Dazu eine sehr gut ausgerüstete Küche und bequeme Sofas im Wohnzimmer, die an einem Regentag einen angenehmen Platz zum Lesen und Relaxen boten. Dazu ausreichend Platz im Badezimmer und bequeme Betten. Ausserdem eine sehr gepflegte Anlage.
Cons Eine Anleitung für den TV in deutsch wäre sehr vorteilhaft. Bitte die Gäste darauf aufmerksam machen, dass genügend Insektenspray eingepackt werden muss; auch innerhalb des Hauses wäre ein Insektenstecker o ä. sinnvoll. Der Gärtner war sehr rücksichtsvoll und hat einen tollen Job gemacht, dennoch kam die Heckenschere im September ziemlich oft zum Einsatz, was die Ruhe gelegentlich etwas gestört hat.
Local attractions Radda zum Bummeln und Einkaufen bei Porciatti für Feinschmecker Siena zum Shoppen und zum Verweilen auf der Piazza del Campo San Gimignano für Toscana-Neulinge, viele Touristen aus aller Welt Castellina mit seinen Höhlengängen als absolut sehenswertes Ausflugsziel Macelleria Cecchini in Panzano als Must für jeden Feischliebhaber, ein Erlebnis!

Pros De mooie rustige omgeving en uitzicht vanuit de jacuzzi tijdens ons verblijf eind aug 2013 in Montebuoni. Appartement La Vigna heeft een mooie goed onderhouden eigen tuin met voldoende privacy, zeker omdat het appartement naast ons onbezet was. Zeer genoten van de routes over landelijke wegen naar de verschillende historische dorpen in de Chianti wijnstreek waarvoor je wel even reistijd moet inplannen. Opvallend weinig verkeer in deze periode met af en toe een overstekende vos of wild zwijn in de avond. Vanwege gebrek aan belangstelling is de wijnproeverij helaas niet doorgegaan. De keuken is volledig ingericht en veelvuldig thuis gekookt en vlees/vis op zijn Toscaans traditioneel met hout op de BBQ bereid.
Cons Het ontbreken van horrengaas in keukenraam en voordeur (slaapkamers wel aanwezig). Er ontbreekt buitenverlichting bij de tafel van het overdekte buitenterras met BBQ.
Local attractions Bezoek en bezichtiging van Castello di Brolio (oudste Italiaanse wijnhuis Barone Ricasoli) was zeer de moeite waard. Alleen al de rit ernaartoe en het uitzicht vanuit de voortuin van het kasteel op de wijngaarden is adembenemend. Zeer moderne wijnproeverij (ook olijfolie) met AC waar je zo naar binnen loopt en hiervoor niet hoeft te betalen als je ter plekke wijn koopt. In Montevarchi is een XL supermarkt waar werkelijk alles uit de Toscaanse keuken vers te koop is (enkele afstand ca. 30 km).

Pros Heerlijk rustig huis met voldoende ruimte voor ons gehele gezin en een grote eigen tuin met veel privacy en jacuzzi in apart gedeelte van de tuin. In de keuken is alle apparatuur aanwezig die men zich kan wensen (bv. wasmachine, afwasmachine, koelkast met vriesvak, espresso machine, magnetron, 4 pits gas kookstel). Wij hebben dan ook vaker thuis gekookt dan wij normaal gezegd doen. Op het terrein, waar zich meerdere appartementen bevinden, zijn een goed bemeten parkeerplaats voor alle auto's, een gemeenschappelijke tuin en een zwembad met voldoende stoelen en ligbedden aanwezig. Dit appartement is uitermate geschikt voor mensen die van rust houden, voordat je bij een snelweg bent ben je wel 20-30 minuten onderweg. Op 5 minuten rijden is in "Lechi in Chianti" een uitstekend Italiaans restaurant, een kleine supermarkt (met iedere dag van de week vers brood) en een bar met fantastische cappuccino, espresso en wijn. Om 'even' pizza te eten ben je wel even onderweg (kwartiertje). Alle ramen op de eerste verdieping (slaapkamers en badkamer) zijn voorzien van muggengaas. In de tuin is een (waterdicht) overdekt gedeelte met grote eettafel, twee lange banken en een barbecue waar het heerlijk is om te ontbijten, lunchen, dineren en onder te zitten op de heetste delen van de dag. In het appartement is er gratis snelle Wifi voor 1 gebruiker aanwezig, maar wie een beetje handig is kan zijn laptop of telefoon zo configureren dat iedereen er tegelijk gebruik van kan maken. Voor wie Engels leest is er een aardige voorraad aan leesboeken aanwezig. Er zijn een satelliet ontvanger, dvd-speler en flatscreen televisie in de woonkamer aanwezig.
Cons Het complex is ver van de bewoonde wereld en ligt aan het einde van een niet verharde weg met een behoorlijke helling.
Local attractions In het Engelse deel van het gastenboek staat een hele lijst met aanbevelenswaardige restaurants.

Cons Der Empfang deutscher Sender über das TV war kaum möglich bzw. war schlecht in der Hausbroschüre erklärt. Die Zufahrt zur Anlage war teilweise mit tiefen Schlaglöcher versehen und sollte dringend saniert werden.
Local attractions Castellina, Radda, Sienna und Monteriggioni. Darüber hinaus Wanderungen in der Umgebung z.B. nach San Sano. Besonders zu empfehlen ist die kleine Pizzeria in Radda mit dem Namen "Pizzeria Pie" an der Eingangsstraße.

Pros Die Lage ist prima (wenn man Ruhe sucht), das Anwesen ist sehr gepflegt und "das Haus" in gutem Zustand. Auch ist Montebuoni ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Touren durch das Chianti-Gebiet und die erlebenswerten Städte Florenz und Siena. Positiv ist auch, dass der angebotene Brötchenservice zuverlässig und pünktlich klappt.
Cons Die Küchenausstattung mit Geschirr ist für eine vierköpfige Familie nicht wirklich ausreichend. Es fehlt insbesondere an Gläsern, Tassen und Bechern. Und was besonders schmerzt - mitten im Chianti-Gebiet sind keine schönen Weingläser vorhanden.
Local attractions Die ganze Gegend ist schön und erlebenswert. Auch haben wir zahlreiche Restaurants besucht und dabei immer toll gegessen/ getrunken.

Cons Electricity bill is a rediculous idea.. an average should be built in. 90 Euros for a jacuzzi that I had on for a full 2 hours for 2 days.. the manager had it on for an hour to clean.. i paid for that electricity too. It was also not ready for our arrival. fridge was on 1..no ice.. TV didnt work warm bottle of sparkling on arrival.. No books on italy in villa.. strange.. all english..
Local attractions Many places
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

There was a mis-reading of the electricity costs by the local property management company, the client should only have paid 9 Euros - the overpayment has been refunded to the client. TT 12/10/12

Pros Die Küche war super eingerichtet. Man bekam richtig Lust zu Kochen. Der Whirlpool war einfach gigantisch. Hatten den Pool kaum benutzt, da wir unsere eigene Abkühlung im Garten hatten. Wunderschöner großer Garten - toll für die Kids. Haus liebevoll eingerichtet. Tolle Lage - aber für Urlaub mit Kinder fast zu abgelegen. Ansonsten war es traumhaft.
Cons Der Fernseher hat nicht funktioniert, was vor allem die Kinder gestört hat. Selbst nach dem Besuch eines Technikers konnte das Problem nicht behoben werden. Wenigstens zum Ein- und Ausladen des Autos sollte man bis zum Eingangsbereich des Hauses fahren dürfen. Ansonsten war alles toll.
Local attractions Absoluter Favorit: Monteriggioni, San Giminano Waren in keinem Restaurant: Haben jeden Tag selbst gekocht!

Local attractions La Grotta della Rana à San Sano (restaurant). Les villages de Radda et Castellina, la proximité de Sienne, magnifique. L'épicerie de Lecchi. La Toscane est à visiter dans son intégralité!

Pros At the beautiful hamlet of Montebuoni the owners of La Vigna have added a Jacuzzi hot tub!

In the garden just below the villa they have added some stone steps which lead to a terracotta terrace with a hot tub and furnishings include sunbeds laid out on a extended decking area, the position of all this is an olive grove over-looking the vineyards and hills beyond.

Inside the villa there has been extensive decoration making this is an extremely comfortable choice.
Cons Only one bathroom.
Local attractions You can walk down to the local villa of Lecchi in Chianti where Paolo's bar is a superb place to sip the finest local chianti and watch the world go by.

What were the highlights of your stay?   
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    very pleasant.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? our only issue was that we had not factored in how long it would take to get to various places we wanted to visit due to the winding slow roads which made all our day trips a bit of a marathon.







Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? no complaints. very good

What were the highlights of your holiday? Eating breakfast in the garden at La Vigna. The bread and milk service were a nice touch. The tour and dinner at the nearby vineyard were lovely and gave us a chance to get to know some of the other visitors and the hosts.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Beautiful beautiful beautiful.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? A scorpion in our living room - that the property manager promptly removed for us. Twice the water stopped, apparently the pump was hit by lightening. Both bad luck!
Do you have any other comments? Excellent service. We would recommend without hesitation to anyone.
