Profile

Villa Due Leoni is a great place to stay for couples. Located just off the square, on the main footpath, that leads down to the swimming pool and tennis court, next door to the hamlet’s small chapel. Large double glass doors open directly into the bright open plan living space which is comfortably furnished with sofas, chairs and satellite TV (Due to heading to the ASTRA – Satellite the most programmes are not in English – more or less only news).
Due Leoni is an experience of romance, beauty, and luxury.

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, whilst still maintaining many of the original features, which make Montebuoni such a great place to stay. All the properties are fully furnished and well equipped, most have their own private terraces or balconies and some have their own garden. Montebuoni has its own full size astro-turf tennis court located in the grounds near the pool area, and there are rackets and balls available. There is a small typical Chianti village a short walk from the hamlet, with a grocery store which stocks all the basics, plus local wines, oils, hams and cheeses. Visit the next door vineyard Castello di Ama one of the Chianti regions finest wine producers for a wine tasting session.

For those who wish to explore the areas major cities and museums the hamlet is ideally located for day excursions to Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Pisa as well as discovering the smaller unknown Tuscan villages.

Swimming Pool - 15 x 7.5 mtrs and 1.5mtrs deep and Tennis Courts
The large swimming pool is to one side of the hamlet, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, with views of the rolling hillside in the distance. This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt heaven. The swimming pool is 15 metres x 7.5 metres and is accessed by ladder. There is also a small children’s swimming pool, which has a constant depth of one metre. Both pools are open from April to October (weather permitting)

 

Interior

The fully equipped kitchen is to one side and has an oven with hob, fridge, coffee machine, dishwasher and dining suite. Double doors lead out on to the terrace area which has a table and chairs.

Doors from the living area give access to the large bedroom which has a double wrought iron bed a wardrobe and a door leading out on to the terrace which runs across the rear of the property. Next door is the bathroom with shower.

Outside the large furnished terrace, has spectacular views over the Tuscan countryside, with its olive groves and rolling hillsides and the romantic castle of San Polo in Rosso across the valley. This is the perfect spot to sit and relax with a glass of the local Chianti wine, watching the sun go down.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
