The apartments Casa Bonaventura A, B, C, D, E and F are part of a farmhouse which covers 20 hectares (50 acres). The guests of the farmhouse share the gardens, two swimming pools, a tennis court, the olive grove, the vineyard and the wood.

The apartments are part of a tiny historical burg, immersed in the green of the Tuscan hills, and made up of four buildings, connected to each other by terracotta pathways and surrounded by lawns and flowerbeds.

The burg is on the green slopes of the hill which is topped by the small medieval village of Montaione, at just 1 km (half a mile) from the village.

In past ages the four buildings were used to grow the olive grove and the vineyard. They have been carefully restored and transformed into holiday homes in a way that keeps the atmosphere and the charm of the ancient Tuscan farm houses.

The walls of the houses have the warm pink and orange colors of the stone and of the terracotta, which stand against the green of the very well looked-after lawns that surround them. The lawns are broken here and there by thriving rose bushes, groups of irises and slender dark green cypresses.

From every observation point in the burg your sight will embrace a wide horizon of gentle and wavy hills, some of them decorated at the top by bunches of houses, clenched around a watch tower or a bell tower.

This is indeed the typical landscape of Tuscany, the one that, along with the inestimable artistic treasures that every corner of this land holds, has been fascinating its visitors for centuries. The sight can wander free upon one of the most beautiful and history-rich territories of Tuscany, among San Gimignano, Volterra and Florence.

You will also have at your disposal a shared tennis court, surrounded by the green of the meadows as well.

The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

The region was populated first by the Etruscans on the 7th century BC, and about 500 years later by the Romans.

The words Humanism and Renaissance evoke Tuscany, as immediately as Pope evokes Rome: just think that between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century, both these ages were born here. The entire region attained a very important artistic role.

If you are keen on art and nature… well you’re definitely in the right place! ;-)

Indeed the fathers of Italian painting, architecture and sculpture lived in this beautiful towns: such as Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. This is the reason why the entire region is rich in museums where thousands of amazing works are kept. You’ll be impressed by the majesty of the many ancient palaces (for examples “Palazzo Vecchio”, “Palazzo Pitti”, “Palazzo Medici”), monasteries and villas that are springing up all over the Tuscany.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

The Apuan Alps are a monumental work of the nature. They consist in some of the highest peaks in the region: This regional park sets up the chance for those who want to practice trekking, cycling, horse riding or simply walking to enjoy this beautiful landscape.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Another great attraction of this region is the archipelago. The largest island is Elba: more than one hundred kilometers of coast.

Curiously enough, since the Etruscans introduced the use of fresh herbs, the Tuscan cooking is still based on vegetable dishes, bread-based soups, meats perfumed with sage, rosemary, and thyme. Moreover the secret of its success is the good care and the devotion to guarantee the quality of the products of the land... crostini of chicken liver, soups, tortelli with Bolognese sauce, “pappardelle” with hare sauce or with boar sauce, boar hunter style, fillet of beef, salted cod with tomato sauce, ricciarelli, cantucci, Tuscan salt-less bread… We’re sure your mouth is already watering!

A holiday in Tuscany is an experience that will bring you back happy memories for the rest of your life.

Montaione

According to some archaeological finds dated back at Etruscan-Roman epochs, the charming village of Montaione has been inhabited from very ancient times. At a few metres from the old town centre you can indeed admire remains of a Roman cistern dated at the II century A.C., as well as some finds of Etruscan china in the area of Santo Stefano.

Even the Church of San Biagio, at 500 metres from the village, shows that Montaione was already inhabited in early Christian times, even though some more detailed news about it started from the Middle Ages.

As many others Tuscan towns, Montaione's name comes from an “evolution”: it probably derives from the Longobard “Allone di Lucca”, later become "Mons Allonis", then corrected as "Montacone", as written in a document of 988.

In 1118 at a distance of 2 Km from the centre of the town, it was built the “Pieve di San Regolo”: notable example of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany, which nevertheless not correspond to the historical church nowadays located at the very centre of Montaione.

Once become commune in 1257, Montaione was involved in the battles among Gimignano, Volterra and San Miniato: battles that deeply marked the Middle Ages in Tuscany.

During that period, the Castle of Montaione was ringed by sturdy walls and framed by 11 imposing towers. The urban district, crossed lengthwise by three streets (like every typical Roman camp), enclosed the Church of San Bartolomeo (today dedicated to San Regolo) and Palazzo Pretorio.

In the XIII century, in both Montaione and the near Gambassi, the locals specialized in making glassworks. Thanks to their workmanship, the craftsmen of Montaione got very well-known and popular all around Tuscany, insomuch as in 1700, a proclamation of the Grand Duke of Tuscany ordered the master glassmakers to teach this art to fellow countrymen only.

Montaione is provided with a rich network of trekking paths (some of them practicable even by bike) the crosses the territory. The routes are organized along 6 itineraries, planned in order to discover the countryside, exploiting the different areas, woods and slopes, that until a few years ago were frequented only by hunters and mushroom seekers.

Some musts among the myriad of events and festivals in Montaione:

- Festival of truffles and typical products: at end of October, in the park of Villa Serena

- Handicraft market and typical products: (from May to September) a fantastic opportunity to buy local handicrafts and taste gastronomic specialities, walking around the medieval walls of this lovely village

- Festival of home cooking cakes: (once at the end of May, once at the end of September) all the local families make one or more traditional genuine cakes and offer them to all tourists and participants at the festival.

- Montaione outdoor dinner: at the end of July, an outdoor dinner carried out in the historical centre of Montaione...definitely one of the most exciting events there!
