About the home
La Stalla is a spacious split level apartment positioned on one side of the hamlet Montebuoni. The apartment is 90sqm arranged over three levels which have been furnished to a very high standard. Access to the property is via a very large paved terrace. The hamlet of Montebuoni was once a large estate producing wine and olive oil. It is these original buildings which have been restored and modernised whilst still maintaining many of the original features.

The Tuscany / Siena Province region
Set in the heart of the Chianti wine producing region, the Hamlet of Montebuoni is surrounded by rolling Tuscan countryside with its olive groves and vineyards, yet within walking distance of the small village of San Sano. The local vineyard of Castello di Ama which the hamlet overlooks has weekly tours of its vineyards with wine tasting.
The Radda area
Ideally located for visiting the large cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano as well as discovering the smaller Chianti towns and villages. Worth seeing is the famous Palio of Siena which takes place in July and September with many of the locals dressing in medieval costume.
The Autumn means its harvest time which is usually a good excuse to have a festival. October/November is when the truffles start to arrive - the area around Montebuoni produces the white truffle - considered by those who know to be the finest of the funghi. This is then followed by various Christmas markets with the opportunity to pick up some unique gifts.

To drive in Italy there are some important things to remember;
When driving in Italy you must always carry these documents:
Car registration document/log book (this should be provided with hired all cars)
Car insurance (this should be provided with all hired cars)
Other Italian Laws
Autostrade Speed Limit 130 km - Motorways with green coloured signs - Toll roads
Super Strade Speed Limit varies/usually 90 km - dual carriageways with blue signs - Free
You must carry identification documents at all times (passport).
You must wear a luminous reflecting jacket if you get out of your car on all main roads, this should be provided if you hire a car.
You must have purchase receipt within 20 meters of purchase.
In vehicles, when you park you must turn the visible clock on the windshield to the time parked. If you do not you may receive a parking ticket.
Before setting out on your trip to Tuscany by car we suggest the following checklist.
1 Check insurance cover - make sure you know what to do in the event of an accident.
2 Breakdown insurance - check you are fully covered for breakdown insurance even if your car is new!
3 Remember to drive on the RIGHT - we suggest that you stick a note on your steering wheel to remind you to drive on the right, even the most experienced of drivers should do this!
4 Car Service - check that your car has been fully serviced including tyres and brakes one week before you travel.
5 There are main dealers for most of the major car companies here in Tuscany should problems arise while you are here; don't forget your dealers guide.
There are 24 hour Petrol Stations along the Motorways, you should try and fill up before leaving the motorway, fuel is sometimes difficult to find in the countryside and more expensive. Tolls can be paid for by Credit Card in Italy, this is often easier on long journeys.
An alternative way of travelling to and around Italy is by train. There are good international connections from mainland Europe to most of the major Italian cities, as well as an extensive network of local trains serving the smaller towns and villages.
Tickets are generally not too expensive, and you can use your Credit/Debit Cards for payment.
