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.

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 regions prestigious small scale wine producers, is on the door step.
