“Dream location in Toscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My husband and I stayed at I Melograni for one week in September. What a wonderful location to visit the Chianti region. The apartment was big, beautifully decorated and very clean. We had a magnificent view from our kitchen window. Our host Serena is one of the nicest people we have ever met. She was always available to answer our many questions about the different historical aspects of the region and to give us great advice on what is worth seeing. I Melograni is close to Florence, Sienna and many other beautiful areas to visit. We drove to most sites, except Florence where we found it was more convenient to take the bus from the nearby village Poggibonsy. Ask Serena to visit a local winery and you will not be disappointed. Everything about our stay was perfect and we truly appreciated the Italian hospitality!

I Melograni is ideally situated in the heart of Tuscany. This location allowed us to visit many of the surounding Tuscan towns on day trips and then return to a beautiful, peaceful apartment at night where we could then choose to eat in or dine at one of the local restaurants. The view from our bedroom window (Focolare Apartment) was breathtaking, the property itself is impeccably maintained and of course proprietor Serena always on hand for information and suggestions.
We would definitely recommend I Melograni del Chianti to anyone who wants to experience Tuscany.

Room Tip: Focolare Apartment is good for 2 couples as it has two large bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Each bathroo...

Lovely host Serena who gives you all the information you need about visiting cities/villages, where to park, where to eat, nice appartments with everything you need, great surroundings (Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and ofcours Florence), swimming pool, Poggibonsi is a little town but for shopping and good food it's quite nice. We had a great apericena (traditional local food) & winetasting night. We would recommend this to anybody, enough to see and do!

We are reluctant to give this too good a review because we want to be able to go back!!! We had a fantastic time at Melograni, Serena was the perfect host, and the enthusiasm she showed for life has made an impression on our children. We can't speak highly enough of I Melograni, or Serena. Lovely place set in a beautiful location - what more can we say. Perfect!!

Room Tip: There is no public transport to local shops. If you don't have a car then it's a 45 min walk...

If you are looking for the perfect self catering accommodation to stay...this is the perfect place and the most romantic one!
We were there in May and stayed for almost two weeks. Our apartment was well equipped, very comfortable and beautiful. Serena was always there to assist us whenever it was needed with great tips to where to go and where to eat.
The sunsets here on our private garden terrace with nice glass of wine was just spectacular.
We loved the Chianti area, true Italian cuisine and the beautiful light. We hope to return soon. Cheers and love, Geraldine and Albert.

My husband and I recently stayed with Serena at I Melograni del Chianti. We enjoyed every minute of our time there. Our apartment was comfortable with all amenities and decorated with a Tuscan feel, the grounds are stunning and we enjoyed eating at the tables with the view of the nearby castle and to top it off, the pool was perfect after a day of sightseeing at nearby Tuscan towns. Serena is an excellent host. Her smile and warmth made each guest feel welcome and she went out of her way to help us plan our days of seeing the sights. We would definitely go back to stay with Serena.
Thanks Serena!

Our last of 3 weeks in Tuscany & Provence was at I Melograni. It is in a great location barely outside of Poggibonzi, close to Sienna making it very easy to travel on day trips to taste some of the best wines in the world not to mention some great sites. The country rustic setting is in full view from our apartment. There are many spots on the property to put your feet up or enjoy a outdoors dining table. Of course the swimming pool area is a favorite of all the guests. The roomy apartments are very well appointed. WiFi is free but you need to be outside as the walls of this built very thick to keep the weather at bay.
Serena. Of course then there is Serena. Your host and proprietor is at your service most of the day and is a wealth of information regarding surrounding attractions and restaurants, La Sosta del Pio VII, being our favorite as we had dinner there twice, with the help of reservations via Serena.
We have been home for a week now and I still have dreams of being there. Can't wait to return.
Oooohhh! Did I mention the wine cellar. It is amazing and quant and has some of Serena's wines as well as other great local Chianti selections.
Enjoy your stay!!
