The Tuscany region
Tuscany, what can be written that hasn't already? Miles of rolling green hills, a sun kissed climate, world renowned cuisine, vineyards and Olive oil to die for. If good food and wine, glorious summer days, walks, cafe culture, history and culture is your bag you won't go wrong with Tuscany. Florence, Siena, Moltacino, San Gimigiano are all names synonymous with culture, history and individual beauty. What's more they are all within an hour of your property here. Lazy days wine tasting in Chianti or Moltacino. Long lunches eating seasonal produce like ravioli with ricotta and basil with a light tomato sauce set amongst a mouth droopingly beautiful back drop of the rolling tuscan hills. Be warned though, once visited, you'll be forever smitten!
Bounconvento can be found off the main road from Siena to Rome. A little picturesque village where time has seemingly stood still. Jasmine scented cobbled walkways, cafe bars, delicious trattorias serving Tuscan specialities, fresh home made ice cream from the gelataria, bakery, fruit and veg plus little boutiques selling locally made leather hand bags to cashmere scarves for the winter. Monte Oliveto with its inspiring abbey and scenery is just 10 minutes drive from your apartment.
We came here for our honeymoon 10 years ago and have returned every year since! Despite visiting many parts of Italy Bounconvento remains a favourite. The welcoming locals ( it has to be seen to be belived!), the sheer beauty of the surrounding rolling hills, the delicious fayre from Ribolita bean soup to Wild boar ragu with tagliatelle or the cantuccio almond biscotti dipped in vin santo to round off a memorable meal!
The home is very accessible to all Moltacino, for the wine and Olive Oil is just a 10 minute drive from your home.
We can recommend our favourite wineries to ensure you get the most from your stay!
Take the train to Siena from Bounconvento which is unmissable with its shell shaped piazza, boutiques, cathedrals and churches. Probably as beautiful city as you will see in Italy by my reckoning!

"An excellent location with lovely views of the Tuscan countryside including Montalcino"
The owners Guiliana and Luciano looked after our every needs. A lovely house and pool. This was our fourth holiday in southern Tuscany but our first at Vodice. We will definitely revisit. Ideal location for visiting Montalcino for a glass of Brunello, Pienza, Montepulciano, La Foce or the many local walks.
