Profile

Lavanda is a ground floor two bedroom apartment with a large private garden to the rear of the property. It is located on the edge of the hamlet, close to the small romantic chapel. The apartment has a bright, spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/diner with terracotta tiled floors and traditional beamed ceilings throughout. The comfortable lounge area has a double sofa bed, open fireplace and satellite TV with DVD player.
The modern fully fitted kitchen has a breakfast bar with built in oven and gas hobs, a coffee machine, fridge with freezer section and a dishwasher. There is also a large table with seating for six people.

A corridor leads to the two double bedrooms, both with antique style iron double beds. Both bedrooms have wonderful views over the private garden and the Tuscan hills beyond.

Outside is a large terrace running across the rear of the property, furnished with table, chairs and loungers. This is a great spot to relax in, as the sun goes down, with uninterrupted views over the gardens to the romantic castle of ‘Castello di San Polo in Rosso’ on the hillside in the near distance.

Montebuoni with pool and tennis
Discover the enchanting Tuscany in central Italy. On a ridge overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside with its olive groves and vineyards, lies the undiscovered Montebuoni, a group of private villas and apartments surrounded by olive groves and beautifully manicured gardens and courtyards.

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.

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. 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.

Interior

The apartment has a bright, spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/diner with terracotta tiled floors and traditional beamed ceilings throughout. The comfortable lounge area has a double sofa bed, open fireplace and satellite TV with DVD player. The modern fully fitted kitchen has a breakfast bar with built in oven and gas hobs, a coffee machine, fridge with freezer section and a dishwasher. There is also a large table with seating for six people. A corridor leads to the two double bedrooms, both with antique style iron double beds.

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.
