We spent 2 weeks at Montebono with our 4 kids and it is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been, perched on a Tuscan hillside amongst the olive trees with stunning views across Regello to the Chianti hills beyond.
Aldo and Alessia were so warm and welcoming and were always around to help with local info, restaurant recommendations/bookings, even arranging a puncture repair and finding the nearest garage that was open in August!
The location is great for exploring the Florence-Arrezzo-Sienna and Chianti areas, though we spent most of our time by the pool, the local town Regello had everything we needed for the two weeks we were there with larger stores not much further away in Figline if we needed.
The farmhouse is a beautiful old building which has been traditionally restored and maintained impeccably, we had all the cooking facilities we needed for regular family cooking and Alessia regularly dropped round eggs/tomatoes/peppers/cucumbers which they grow on the farm. We also bought a few bottles of their olive oil and wine which we are now enjoying at home and wishing we were still there.
This was our first visit to Montebono and Tuscany so we feel like we've only scratched the surface, we can't wait to go back...
Thank you Aldo & Alessia!
We stayed here for my girlfriends 21st birthday with her family, it was lovely! It’s rather difficult to find and does require you’re own car but the owners drove out to meet us at around 11:30pm to show us the way. It took us around a hour and a half from pisa airport as we went through Florence and I would definitely ensure your sat nav has toll roads enable and you pay the small fee of the tolls because driving through Florence is quite difficult and scary trying to dodge mopeds, pedestrians and other cars! But we got there in the end.
The house was beautiful with plenty of room to park, a lovely pool, gorgeous view of the Tuscan country side and a rustic old styled farm house interior.
The owners gave us some of their home made wine made from their farm and some fresh eggs on arrival. They were very friendly and approachable and made our stay very enjoyable. There’s no oven in the house but there is hobs, microwave, fridge and a bbq outside. Behind the house is a lovely forest which we went for walks into in the evenings and watching the sunset from here was lovely.
I would definitely recommended staying here as long as you are comfortable driving abroad and are able to rent a car.
Perfectly maintained, lovingly furnished stone house with pool and barbecue facilities in the middle of the olive grove. The owners are exceptionally nice and because we liked it so much, we were there for the 4th time. Highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful place with amazing hosts. Would defiantly come back.
Need a decent engine car to get to the hill to the property is the only downside but the view is worth it!
