Montelandi is just the most magical tuscan retreat. We stayed here for our honeymoon back in 2000 and have returned many times since so suffice to stays Montelandi holds a special place in our hearts. The hill top position commands breathtaking views of the miles and miles of rolling hills in a serene and tranquil setting, perfect for recharging one's batteries. The additional bathrooms and cantina recently added to the villa and welcome additions and were much appreciated and whilst it was only the two of us staying, the villa would be very comfortable for hosting large parties and groups. Claudio, as ever, is the perfect host, nothing is too much trouble. The home is within easy reach of some of the most picturesque tuscan landscape imaginable with pretty villages such as Pienza famed for it's Pecorino, Moltacino and its wine and the historic city of Siena are all within easy reach as well as the hot springs of Bagno Vignoni. Last but not least Buonconvento is a fantastic, hidden gem of a village. Travel writers perennially yearn to find that hidden undiscovered gem of a location unspoilt by tourism and that harks back to a time less frenetic than our day to day lives. We think we have uncovered that special place and solved the mystery. Buonconvento has all you need for a relaxing holiday to unwind good and proper! Welcoming locals, deli's, bakery, geletaria, wine bars, authentic tuscan home cooking as well as modern conveniences such as a supermarket, pharmacy and the train to access cities such as Florence and Rome for when you wish to adventure further afield. We were happy to take in the village atmosphere or just relax in the gardens at Montelandi and watch the sunset over a glass of wine with some local salami and pecorino. Truly a piece of Tuscan Heaven.
We had a wonderful 5 night stay at the Sarna Residence. The accommodation was conveniently located for the village, San Quirico d'Orcia which has a supermarket and a couple of great restaurants, and the apartment itself was well equipped for our self catering needs. The pool area was quiet and relaxing, and the staff were incredibly friendly. Perfect spot to explore nearby Montalcino & Pienza. Would absolutely recommend a stay!
