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.

Stay: July 2014
Pros We adored Montebuoni - and - staying at Santa Lucia is a cool, clean, comfortable and pleasant way to enjoy the hamlet and the surrounding countryside. Each window frames a perfect view - delightful.

The local support team members were very helpful - Annie, Patriche and Gabby helped us out of a couple of tight spots - thank you.
Cons We had a lovely holiday, however the shower needs attention - it is almost impossible to get the water consistently to the correct temperature
Local attractions Rada quickly became our favourite spot - we particularly enjoyed coffee/breakfast/ice cream at the Sandy Café, shopping in the delicatessen nearby and browsing in the beautiful clothing/homeware/jewellery store (I'm afraid I don't remember the names of the last two shops).

Pros Locatie is schitterend, mooi uitzicht over de wijngaarden en een heerlijk zwembad.
Cons Een balkon/terras is toch wel echt een gemis van dit appartement.
Local attractions We hebben 2 keer heerlijk gegeten in San Sano bij La Grotta della Rana, lekker dichtbij. De georganiseerde wijnproeverij bij wijnhuis Ama is ook een aanrader. Verder zijn de steden Siena, Florence en Lucca zeker de moeite waard om te bezoeken.

Pros le cadre
Cons le couchage en très mauvais état et absolument pas en rapport avec le reste de l'appartement et donc le prix. Mauvais écoulement de la douche. Pas d'eau ni papier toilette ni produit ménagers fournis à l'arrivée (sans tarification supplémentaire) : ne correspond pas à ce qu'on attend de ce type de prestation a priori de qualité. Appartement très mal isolé de la chaleur. Absence de terrasse, même si on le savait au départ.

Pros de authenticiteit en ligging , het zwembad was heerlijk, ook de informatiemap was heel zinvol
Cons We vonden het jammer dat er geen balkon was of dakterras waar je bv kon ontbijten of s, avonds lekker kon zitten. verder alles prima!
Local attractions De directe omgeving was prachtig, we zijn in Sienna geweest wat natuurlijk een prachtige stad is , In Radda wilden we maandagmiddag naar de markt die konden we echter niet vinden. Poggibonsi viel ons tegen erg rommelig

Pros Herrliche Lage. Ruhe. Wunderschöne Ausstattung des Appartments.
Cons Trotz der Aufschriften ist es am Swimming Pool zu laut. Es wird laufend ins Wasser gesprungen. Wir haben einmal den Pool verlassen, weil sogar unsere Bücher am Liegestuhl angespritzt wurden. Hier sollte die Betreuung von Zeit zu Zeit auf die Regeln aufmerksam machen. Es gibt Probleme mit dem Handy Netzwerk.
Local attractions Wir kennen die Toskana in der Zwischenzeit sehr gut. Diesmal gab es Ausflüge nach Siena, Pienza, Radda, Gaiole, Brollio. Sehr empfehlenswert sind die Restaurant Malborghetti in Lecchi und La Botte di Bacco in Radda.
