Poggibonsi villa description

The Hamlet of Montebuoni with tennis court and pool - Discover the enchanting splendour of Tuscany, deep in the heart of Italy. Sitting on a ridge overlooking the fabulous Tuscan countryside with its olive groves and vineyards, is the undiscovered Hamlet of Montebuoni. A cluster of private self catering villas and apartments sit amongst olive groves and beautiful planted gardens. Montebuoni was once a large estate producing wine and olives, and it is these original buildings which have been restored and modernised to a very high standard, whilst still maintaining many original features. All the villas are fully furnished and well equipped with their own private terrace or garden. A typical Chianti village is within walking distance, and for those who wish to explore further, the hamlet is ideally located for day excursions to Florence and Siena. Many typical Chianti towns and villages are dotted around the area offering fabulous food and wine. Not to be missed is a weekly wine tasting!


Wine tasting Tour: What were the highlights of your holiday?

Getting away from it all, yet being well situated to explore the
Chianti area - all the places we wanted to see such as Siena, San
Gimignano and Castellina are easily accessible. We went to the
Wednesday wine tasting which was great fun. Daniela was great, and
we met some really nice people. We got together again for a drink by
the pool on the Friday evening!

Highlights: The wonderful hill towns of the area and the great food and provisions. The weather was beautiful the whole two weeks except one day. Can't complain about that. We went to the Wednesday wine and food tasting and it was very special. The wines and olive oil and the food prepared were excellent. We met some very nice people and struck up friendships that, I am sure, will last a long time.
Unpleasant surprises: None.
