Resort: 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.

Quiet. Amazing views. Welcome hamper was good. Beautiful area. Swimming pool was great, especially with the baby pool for little ones.
Flies, mosquitoes!

Wifi reception was not available in the property as advertised. We had to go outside to get on it, and reception was still poor. Amenities in the villa were basic.
Local attractions La Loggia del Chianti in Rada. Great pizzas, great views, and outside space and toys for little ones to play.

La Contessina was on a beautiful site which as advertsied had a lovely pool and grounds.
La Contessina is pictured as being light and airy and we assumed from the photographs that the outside seating area and sunbeds would be secluded. Unfortunately La Contessima was far from being light although this had the benefit of making it cool. The outside are was not secluded.

Großzügige FeWo, wunderbare Lage des kleinen Ortes, der Pool etwas außerhalb der Ferienhäuser und der Tennisplatz. Toll war auch, dass es in der FeWo bereits 2 Tennisschläger und Bälle gab. Wir waren in der Vorsaison dort und hatten Pool und Tennisplatz fast für uns alleine.
Die Wohnung La Contessina hat selbst keinen Ausblick in die Umgebung. Ich würde Urlaubern in Montebuoni eine andere Wohnung empfehlen, wenn Sie einen direkten Ausblick in die schöne Landschaft haben möchten.
Die FeWo hat zwar Fliegengitter an den Fenstern, leider nicht an der Eingangstür. Dadurch kamen kleine Mücken in die Wohung, die aussahen wie Fruchtfliegen aber leider nicht so harmlos waren, so dass wir viele Stiche bekamen und uns dann auch zum Schlafen mit Mückenschutz einreiben mussten.
Das in der Ausstattung der Wohnung erwähnte Moskitonetz gab es nicht, damit sind anscheinend die Fliegengitter an den Fenstern gemeint.

Uroczy - to słowo które najlepiej opisuje ten dom oraz cały kompleks , wystrój wnętrza w klimatach toskańskich , zapach starego drewna dochodzący z belek stropowych oraz mebli , zapach ziół i roślin napływający z zewnątrz , toskańskie wzgórza które można było podziwiać siedząc przy stole w kuchni albo w ogrodzie przed domem . Wszystko co było w opisie znajdowało się na miejscu . Osobne podziękowania dla Pana Mikołaja Wierzbickiego oraz PPM Services z Radda in Chianti za załatwienie ponadstandartowej prośby .
Local attractions Restauracja Le Vigne Radda in Chianti - Wspaniały widok oraz fantastyczny rozpływający się w ustach bistecca fiorentina . Jedliśmy w wielu , ta była najlepsza biorąc pod uwagę obsługę , cenę , smak , ilość , położenie .

Jeśli ktoś chce odpocząć z dała od zgiełku w pięknym otoczeniu, to polecamy to miejsce. Jest bardzo klimatyczne. Sam apartement wygodny, choć juz nieco zużyty i przydałoby się jego odświeżenie. Kompleks bardzo dobrze utrzymamy, czysty i zadbany. Aby coś zjeść czy kupić należy dojechać do miasteczek, ponieważ obiekt znajduje się na zupełnym uboczu pośród winnic i dużej ilości zieleni.
Local attractions Większość uroczych miasteczek jest w promieniu 30km, także mozna codziennie gościć w innym miejscu.
