Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Tuscan farmhouse with pool and great hill views. Ideal for families and couples.

The Holiday House Mandorlo Podere Monti Holiday huose Siena Tuscany is a beautiful farmhouse that dominates one of the most beautiful setting that nature can offer: the Tuscan countryside.The farmhouse is located in the heart of the Siena countryside, just a few kilometres from Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti and Val d'Elsa, a perfect place to visit the main attractions of Tuscany.

In total is a 100 m² apartment, on ground floor with independent entrance.It is is composed by a large dining area with sofas , fully equipped kitchen ,second smaller kirchen corner, 2 double bedrooms, a bedroom with twin beds ,2 bathrooms with wc and shower.

Fully restored in 2016.

In front of Mandorlo, external private area with table and chairs and panoramic view.

Wi fi connection on all outdoor areas.

The outdoor area is composed of a large garden with tables to eat outdoors and a deckchair to relax in, a splendid swimming pool (measuring 6 x 12 m) from which you can enjoy a spectacular view over San Gimignano and a woodland park where you can take relaxing walks, treks or cycle for lovers of mountain bikes. In front of the farmhouse , an elegant garden with a green grass carpet, many types of flowers and big cypresses. Around the pool there is a green area with deckchairs, large parasols and an hedge of roses.

The farm is only 1 km from the medieval village of Casole d'elsa ,reachble in 10 min via a safe scenic road. Casole d'Elsa is a small medieval village located 420 m above sea level at the top of the hill. Well ventilated, it has a dry climate and pleasantly temperate. The heart of Casole is the "piazza Lucchetti", the small central square with its historic buildings dating from the Middle Ages, with narrow streets and small shops where you can buy typical products of the region or taste the delicious specialities in the restaurants on the small streets of the center... A characteristic of this small town is certainly the warmth and kindness of people who still live according to the old traditions and rhythms of life without pollution or stress.

About the Owner

Hi everyone!

I'm Federica and Podere Monti is my home and my passion. I live here with my family and always we are dedicated to our house and a rural hospitality service always more complete.

Here you can feel love and passion because hosting is not just a job, but a vocation.

Podere Monti is a farmhouse that dates back 1600 and it has been completely renovated in the last 25 years. It took a lot of effort and sacrifice but now we are here and we want to share it with you.

The property consists of the main house where there are 3 spacious and well furnished apartments, always retaining the typical Tuscan style of the old buildings.

Not far from the main house there are 3 cottages , even those obtained from the renovation of the original buildings of the 1600s and a few meters on there is the swimming pool with the panoramic view over the hills.

We are always available for the guests throughout their stay and if you like it will not not lack tips to visit the big cities and the small towns of our region ... without forget some gastronomic visit, because you know.. in Tuscany , good food is not a problem!

Let yourselves be enthralled by the beauty of the area, from the goodness of food and the warm Tuscan hospitality.

Welcome to Podere Monti.

Our apartment at Podere Monti was absolutely perfect! We had a lovely time and most of all it was just what I expected. The location and place was fabulous and made our family vacation a true delight. What views!! What night skies, what amazing bird songs…… Judy Allen (UK) - 2/06/2014



Dave and I want to thank you again for the lovely week that we had at Podere Monti. The setting was stunning and the house was very comfortable for us. Thank you again, and we hope to return to this special place. Camilla (UK) June 2014



Dear Federica, I just wanted to drop you a very quick note to say how much Lisa and I enjoyed your help.

great stay

Fantastic, charming hosts - suggested day trip itineraries that were well worthwhile, off the tourist routes. The recently built apartment is tastefully appointed with a bit of traditional and new. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Podere Monti Mandorlo . Federicaa and her family could not have been more welcoming. We had three couples and did day trips to surrounding towns and Florence. There was a festival in town while we visited and so things were quite lively. The surrounding towns and wineries along with the good food at the various restaurants in Casole..

Would return in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Podere Monti! Federica & her Mom were warm and welcoming, and very helpful in guiding us through the area and offering suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. The home is a charming mix of old world charm and modern comforts. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds had down comforters. Bathrooms were clean and modern, with good lighting. The location was nice and central, with easy access to popular Tuscan sites.
