This was our second visit to the heaven that is Montebuoni. We stayed in a the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom villa La Stalla. This was a lovely villa, spacious with a huge front terrace. Plenty of space, but found the kitchen / dining layout a little cramped. Lots of couches in the lounge even a sofa bed. The top bedroom had 3 single beds, all very comfortable. The views from the villa were gorgeous. Bonus that all windows had fly screens on them, not all of the villas do. Well equiped with a microwave and dishwasher and washing machine.
Loved being able to order fresh bread and milk to be delivered daily.
The pool is divine, even as the weather was cooling down. Lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas.
Lovely service from the staff, all very helpful and friendly.
Fantastic local villages San Sano and Lecchi had little grocery stores and awesome coffee.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sitting on a ridge overlooking the fabulous Tuscan countryside with its olive groves and vineyards, is the undiscovered Chianti Hamlet of Montebuoni. A cluster of privately owned villas and apartments sit amongst olive groves, beautiful planted gardens and courtyards. Montebuoni was once a large estate producing wine and olive oil. It is these original buildings which have been restored and modernised to a very high standard, with shared pool, tennis and internet access. ... more less
