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.

Having stayed there before we knew it would meet our need for two bedrooms and two full baths. We knew it would be clean and comfortable.
Wi-fi and cell phone service were marginal but OK. That was no surprise. With four of us all wanting to be online, we used the free connection and purchased two more for each couple at 20 Euro per week. This is a hot spot system and not a connection to a router in the building.
Local attractions It's a nice central spot with easy driving access to Florence, Siena and points in between and around Tuscany. In two weeks of eating out, only one restaurant was a bit of a disappointment but it wasn't bad. Everything else ranged from good to great. In Lecchi, Malborghetto is an outstanding restaurant for food and service. Three times there including cooking school. The grocery store there and adjacent enoteca are great. Many coffees and croissants down there for breakfast. Lots of good food in Radda, too. For most meals, we simply went into places that looked interesting or had good website reviews or were on the To-Tuscany list. There are so many. We engaged tour guides for visiting several towns. Well worth it. There is a lot of English spoken and written and that made it very easy and was much appreciated.

Aufteilung der Räume sehr gut, Qualität der Betten sehr gut, Ausstattung / Möblierung innen überwiegend gut, Möblierung und Beschattung der Terrasse hervorragend, Mückenschutz an Fenstern und Terrassentür hervorragend. Pool stets sauber.
Die Lage ist seeeehr fernab von allem. Wer Ruhe sucht, findet sie hier wie im Übermaß. Entfernung zu den nächsten Dörfchen sind nicht mal eben zu Fuß zu bewältigen, sondern eine Wanderung. Um kleine "Ziele" anzusteuern, braucht man einen Pkw.
In einem der beiden Schlafzimmer fehlt grundsätzlich die Möglichkeit, T-Shirts u.ä. in einem Wäschefach / einer Kommode o.ä. abzulegen.

la situation géographique au sein des vignes du Chianti. La qualité architecturale du village lui-même, ainsi que les commodités liées à la piscine suffisamment éloignée du village pour la tranquillité des habitants.
L'obscurité de la cuisine (les photos sont trompeuses).
La climatisation qui n'existe pour la chambre à l'étage.
Local attractions Les nombreuses églises situées sur les différents accès à Montebuoni. Les restaurants de Radda. Les producteurs de Chianti.

it is a lovely area
the garden was a jungle when we got there and no hot water
our guests didn't like that only 1 person could be on the internet at a time
no privacy when on the terrace as overlooked by people less than 2 meters away and 1 meter above
the owner had left coffee maker dirty and unusable
annoying that the power cut out with minimal electrical appliance use
Local attractions all the ones in the booklet from To Tuscany were good

Die Zimmer müssten häufiger und besser gelüftet werden. So wunderbar die Lage in schöner Umgebung mit herrlicher Aussicht ist, so beschwerlich ist die Anfahrt über die Schotterstraße.
Local attractions Neben den bekannten Ausflugszielen hat uns Valpoia und Badia a Calltibuono besonders gut gefallen.

The area is beautiful, the location good and the house together with the rest of the village is very pretty with the crown jewel being the outside terrace of the hose overlooking the valley. Weather permitting we had all our meals on the terrace and it was a real pleasure. The grounds are ample and well maintained.
The quality of the beds/mattresses was unacceptably low. In the main bedroom the bed is flimsy and makes a (great deal of) noise at the slightest movement. The mattress is (or feels) of low quality. The pull-out sofa in the living area was worse. The mechanism is of low quality or malfunctioning so it jams at a specific point making it hard to open and close. When open, the resulting bed is very uneven with prominent bumps caused by parts of the frame and sloping surfaces. None of this is helped by what can’t even pretend to be a mattress. I have no opinion of the beds in the second bedroom since only my kids slept there. An otherwise great experience was spoiled by a sensation of having really cheap beds and all the discomfort that goes with them.

The living room is excessively dark making it necessary to have lights on right through the day.
