Buonconvento is simply a hidden treasure where authentic Italian life still exists and yet is easy to reach more famous touristy towns and villages. Unlike many villages and towns Buonconvento is a real working village where locals live 12 months a year. This was all important to us when choosing a place to purchase in Tuscany. Yet Buonconvento is pretty and attractive at the same time, recognised as one of the most prettiest bongo’s in the whole of Italy. As well as the usual festival’s and Bank holiday Buonconvento comes to life throughout the year. For example, February is carnival time here, in May The Eroica cycle race passes through the village as does the Mille Miglia classic car race. In mid to late September the Sagra festival happens where the locals line the streets and enjoy food and wine from the different quarters of the village. Here you can mix freely with the welcoming locals where the welcome is warm and the prices are reasonable. As well as a supermarket you can still shop in an old fashioned Italian way. The weekly market selling fresh produce from fish and meat to cheese, bread, fruit and vegetables takes place every saturday morning throughout the year. You can purchase fresh bread daily from our favourite artisan baker and coffee shop, call into see Sergio and Rosy at Tutti Fruitti fruit and Vegetable grocery store which has served the community for years or pick up your weekly joint at the local butchers who will be happy to advise you the best method and cooking time to enjoy your meat. Plus many grocery stores in the village are available selling everything from home made pasta to local cheese and sauces. Piangiani hand made leather bags and shoes is located in the middle of the village and always popular with guests to pick up a gift of artisan Italian leather. Buonconvento really does give you an authentic slice of life from a by gone area where friends and family feel a lot better for living the experience. The village is served by a the train and buses taking you to Siena and beyond or down to Rome, please ask for details.
