Il Forno at Montebuoni, Lecchi in Chianti - Gaiole in Chianti - Siena

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Now a comfortable and well appointed one bedroomed apartment, Il Forno was once the village bakery. Situated on the ground floor, it looks out to the central courtyard of Montebuoni’s main building and has a pretty covered terrace that captures the sun. It is an ideal place for couples wishing to relax and explore this beautiful part of Tuscany.

Passing through the impressive wrought iron gates that lead to the courtyard Il Forno is the first door on the left. A large brick archway is now a glass-fronted doorway that allows plenty of light to enter the apartment. The living room is furnished with a large, comfortable sofa, chairs and occasional tables. A TV and DVD player are provided. At the far end of the lounge a small alcove houses a desk, chair and book shelves. The traditional styling of the furniture and fittings complement the wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors.

The kitchen-diner is to the right. A dining table and four chairs are placed in front of the fully furnished, modern style  kitchen. There is a built in oven, gas hobs, dish-washer and under-counter fridge with freezer section. A window looks out over the flowers and plants of the gravelled courtyard.

A small hallway leads off the lounge to the bathroom and bedroom. The bedroom is spacious and furnished and decorated in typical Tuscan, country style to include a double bed, double wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside tables and antique wooden chest. The bathroom is finished in travertine tiles and has a shower.

The patio of Il Forno is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine in the evening. The courtyard is beautifully planted with aromatic plants among the gravel and has the look and atmosphere of a Mediterranean hilltop village. The patio is furnished with a table and dining chairs and it is just a short stroll to the chapel in the central piazza with its evocative views over the Tuscan countryside.



The patio of Il Forno opens onto the courtyard fragrant with lavender and rosemary. From the small square in front of the chapel there is a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside and rolling hills beyond.

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 regions 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.

Approach road - 1.5 km very good unpaved road

The pool area and tennis court are to be found in a tranquil and unobtrusive setting just a short stroll along the ridge. Surrounded by lawn and provide with parasols and sun-loungers there is plenty of space to relax and take in the sun.

The clubhouse has a large covered veranda furnished with outdoor tables and chairs if you should wish to spend some time out of the sun. The landscaped gardens and views through the trees give the feeling of being at a private country club.

The pool is 15 mtrs x 7.5 mtrs in size and 1.5 mtrs deep. The children’s paddling pool is 1 mtr deep. The pools are open from April to October (weather permitting).
