Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Poggibonsi - I Melograni del Chianti

Beautiful vacation in Tuscany

If you love the allure of surprises and discovering things, from fine drinks to excellent food, you just cannot miss out on a holiday in Tuscany, where the whole countryside offers you an original cross-section of nature and fine examples of the works of men. “I Melograni del Chianti” farm holiday residence is located in the Tuscan hills, in the small medieval town of Talciona, a perfect barycentre in between the biggest cities of art in Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano. You can enjoy a breathtaking view from any of the apartments: the mellow profile of the Tuscan hills covered in olive groves and vineyards, and an alternation of woods and small towns that reminds us of the area’s origins and gives a picture of tranquility and peace which has mostly been forgotten.

Superb!!

  • 5 out of 5
I Melograni del Chianti exceeded our expectations in every way! The pictures can not do it justice. The views are stunning. The facilities are charming and spotless. The location is perfect for touring Tuscany. Very centrally located but away from the hustle and bustle. The best quality is the hostess Serena! She goes above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay perfection. She never steered us wrong with restaurants or recommendations. I will definitely return to I Melograni del Chianti. Do yourself a favor and book for 2 weeks...I wish we had! Kathy C.

Rooms with a view

  • 5 out of 5
We (a family of four) spent a wonderful week at I Melograni. After a rather tiring drive through Austria we found the place even more welcoming than on the internet. The rooms are well-furnished and we had a lovely view over the vineyards from our bedrooms (and a view on the pool from our kitchen).
As Poggibonsi is at the centre of Tuscany you can get everywhere rather quickly, you have got the possibility to go to Florence or Siena if you like sightseeing but also to smaller places in the Chianti area where you can have gorgeous meals and a glass of wine. Serena is often around to help, she recommended restaurants to us, even booked them and got tickets for the Uffizi for us which we wouldn´t have got without her.
One week wasn´t enough to do all the things that you can do there. As it was rather hot that week, we took advantage of the pool after our tours and also liked to cook in the well-equipped kitchen. We could have also rented bikes, but we were more keen on relaxing holidays which we did find there.
Mille grazie/ Thanks a lot Serena for giving us such a great time. We would recommend this place to anyone and home to come back one day ourselves.

Amazing Tuscany gem, unforgettable owner

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed for a week at this amazing gem and we feel extremely blessed. I, my wife and another couple were looking for a place that would allow us to explore as much of Tuscany as possible. The town of Poggibonsi proper is not a tourist town but its location in the heart of Tuscany makes it extremely well located. From here we were able to explore much of Tuscany including Pisa, Lucca and Florence to the North, Volterra and San Gimignano to the West and Siena, Montepluciano, Pienza and Montalcino to the South. I Melogani is an 11th century 25 acre estate on top of a hill about two miles outside of town. The views are of a spectacular countryside, a castle, vineyards, olive groves and other estates. The property was custom quality renovated in 2008 and the furnishings are of equal quality. There are numerous tranquil outdoor sitting areas and grilling areas. It has a large pool which like everything else is spotless. There is a wounderful wine cellar featuring the estate's own Chianti Classico wine. A large supermarket is also close by. To all this add the fact that owner, Serena, who speaks very good english, is one of the most delightful and helpful people you will ever meet. She is extremely knowledgeable about Tuscany and although the inn was completely full, she was always available to sit with us and plan amazing day trips, including arranging tours, securing museum tickets to avoid long lines and making dinner reservations at wonderful restaurants in the evening. She even sent us to her bank for a favorable currency exchange rate and when we lost money in a machine at a self service gas station, she made a phone call and helped us recover the money. Staying here was the highlight of our trip which also included stays on the Amalfi coast and Rome. I could go on, but you get the point. We travel fairly extensively and look for upscale bargains and this was one. Ok, just to be fair, I will say that like many places in Italy, bar soap is not furnished. We were aware of this and brought our own. Other than that, I cannot think of anything negative. Chris H

A perfect place to stay in Tuscany!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent a week at I Melograni del Chianti in May, and loved it. The location is beautiful and our apartment was perfect for the two of us. The overall facilities are great - well maintained, clean and very comfortable.

Serena could not have been a more gracious hostess. She made us feel very welcome and was extremely helpful in planning our excursions into Chianti and to Florence. Her advise to park at the Piazzale Michelangelo on our trips to Florence was spot on. Not only is it easy to get to and the parking is free, but it provides a spectacular view of Florence. She set up a tour of and lunch at Castello Monterinaldi outside of Rada. The winery is in lovely villa and we had the best meal of our two week trip to Italy.

This is an ideal location to just relax - at pool-side or, as we did every evening, on the veranda watching the sun go down on the Tuscan hills - or to take easy day trips to Florence, Siena or the villages of Chianti. I recommend I Melograni del Chianti and the charming Serena without reservation. My wife and I hope to return before too long and stay longer.

heaven on earth

  • 5 out of 5
I can't say enough about this property. We stayed here for a week with our two teenage sons as part of a month vacation in Italy. The grounds are beautiful, the views impressive and our apartment was perfect. One of the reasons it was so wonderful was Serena who owns the Villa. She is very helpful and is one of the warmest people I have ever met. She makes excellent wine and olive oil which is an added bonus! - if you are travelling in this area, you wouldbe a fool not to stay here
