Fantastique agritourisme (espace, calme et localisation)

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine à Podere Tresa, 3 familles, 6 adultes, 10 enfants. Excellent séjour. L'endroit est une ancienne batisse remplie de charme. Les espaces sont fantastiques. Plusieurs appartements à se partager. Pleins de recoins dans la propriété, au plus grand bonheur des enfants. La piscine est très grande et la vue absolument fabuleuse. Le calme est parfait. Ideal pour s'isoler et se reposer. En même temps, la localisation est idéale aussi, à la frontière de la Toscane et à proximité de très beaux lieux ou villes à visiter. Entre Florence et Rome.

A notre le caractère un peu vieillot de l'ensemble, en particulier le mobilier et les ustensiles de cuisine. Mais cela fait partie du charme... et du prix !

Maria Laura est très sympa et accueillante. La location est bien organisée et pratique.

Nous recommandons vivement l'endroit.

Lovely countryside villa with friends or family

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Podere Tresa is a lovely countryside villa with charm, lots of authentic details and a great pool to cool down from the summer heat. You would need weeks to explore the many historic sites, villages and cities in the vicinity of Podere Tresa. Maria Laura is a lovely host and has been very helpful to our extended family.

excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine avec un groupe de 19 personnes; les enfants, comme les adultes se sont éclatés, la propriété est très belle, très agréable, avec des petits coins pour s'isoler. L'accueil chaleureux, la propriétaire est sympathique et donne de bons conseils.


Nous recommandons chaudement cette location !!

Great Holidays in Podere Tresa

  • 5 of 5

We are a Russian-German couple who booked the entire domicile for the week of our wedding for our family. We are so glad we could enjoy our special day at such beautiful place. We were 19 people and everybody loved it. We really had nothing to complain about, except that we should have stayed longer. When we first arrived we were so fascinated with the beauty of the place and ran around the domicile developing new highlights. The wonderful garden is very spacious and a field of old and large olive trees surrounds the domicile, which you can take for a walk. The place is therefore very dog friendly.

The scenery is breathtaking and gives you the typical picture of the picturesque hills with cypresses that one usually associates with Tuscanny rather than Umbria. You oversee the landscape with a 360 degree panorama and can enjoy both the sunrise and sunset. In the mornings, the hills are covered with soft fog and you can hear the hunters hunting wild boars. The spacious kitchen probably provides for the best scenery due to the removable doors and is a great place for having breakfast together.

The pool is very big and absolutely clean and, again, provides for a wonderful view. Everyday in the mornings, a pool boy takes care of the pool. The light is on at night. Don't worry about the moths that fly into the pool at night. In the mornings, nothing is to see anymore. The pool is surrounded by a green grass field which is a good playground for outdoor activities and by large cypresses as well as a fence. We left our dogs run arround within the fenced area.

The apartments provide for local standards in a very cute way. You quickly get the impression you would live there as it feels very home-like. We first were nervous if spending a whole week with our families is such a good idea and wondered if we would finally all get in a fight. However, the place provides for various private retreats and loads of bath rooms. It was not a problem at all finding the best allocation of accomodations among our guests, who also had children of various age.

There is a big garden with a grill and a built pavilion where all of us found a place and had several great nights with barbecue and wine. Podere Tresa is located on a hill, so you are very private there. It really worths booking the entire domicile. A very good supermarket with a butcher and local food is just down the hill on the left side.The landlord Maria-Laura is a very warm hearted person who loves dogs.

Ein Traumurlaub mit der Großfamilie

  • 5 of 5

Von Anna

Es war ein wunderbarer Urlaub, tolles Haus, sehr liebe Vermieter, wunderschöne Aussicht auf das Land drumherum, toller Pool, wo man bis spät abends sitzen kann, mit einem Gläschen Wein, weil es beleuchtet ist, das hauseigene Olivenöl auch sehr lecker! !! Die kleinen Städtchen drumherum sind sehr romantisch. Zum Meer ist es zwar ein bisschen weiter weg, dafür hat der Pool aber völlig ausgereicht. Das Haus ist antik-rustikal eingerichtet, wer diesen Stil mag, kommt voll auf seine Kosten. Es gibt wunderschöne Plätze überall zum sitzen oder draußen essen. Unser Highlight war jeden Morgen die tolle Aussicht aus der Küche!!! Als Familie haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen!!

The Podere Tresa is the border between Umbria and Tuscany, absorbed in a natural highly suggestive.

The house is in the middle of a farm of 35 hectares of land planted with wheat, sunflower and olive trees which also includes an orchard and two oak woods.

Reachable in 80 minutes from Rome and Florence, the place offers an absolute silence for those who love a relaxing holiday and, at the same time, the opportunity of excursions to places of great artistic, historical and religious as Siena, Arezzo, Perugia , Gubbio, Assisi, Orvieto ....

Those looking to stay outside the centers highly frequented tourist can enjoy some great hiking in many places rich in artistic and scenic jewels, often little known: Città della Pieve, Paciano, Panicale, Lake Trasimeno, Cortona, Montepulciano, Monticchiello, Pienza, San Quirico D'Orcia, Bagno Vignoni, Montalcino, Sant'Antimo, Cetona, Sarteano, Radicofani, San Casciano dei Bagni - Spa ....

For those who like outdoor activities there are beautiful trails for hiking and mountain biking to suit all needs. The presence of riding schools in the area also allows to make pleasant excursions on horseback.

Lastly, the opportunity to attend cultural and recreational activities (concerts, local festivals, theatrical performances).
