Overview

About the property

Podere del Pereto Organic Farm and Farm Stay lies in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, between the Ombrone Valley and Valdichiana, in the heart of the Crete Senesi; amidst gently undulating hills, dotted with thick oak woods, the ruins of medieval castles, and the traces of ancient Roman and Etruscan settlements. A patch of rural Tuscany, where, during the day, the golden wheat fields glimmer in the summer sun; and where, in the evening, the most romantic of sunsets set the skies ablaze.

Pulses, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, pasta and sauces: a tempting range of Podere del Pereto's organic products is available for purchase in the farm shop.

Podere del Pereto’s organic breakfast: taste and quality

For guests staying in the farm stay’s bedrooms, a breakfast service is available. Our breakfast is prepared with the delicious organic products made on the farm. We bake the cakes ourselves and choose only the highest quality local cheeses and cold meats. An abundant sweet and savory buffet breakfast will keep everybody happy and provide the perfect start to the day. And once you’re home, the memories of our delicious breakfast, will be another reason why you’ll want to come back to Podere del Pereto - soon.

Swimming pool and solarium: fun and relaxation

Our choice to respect man and his environment is reflected not only by the decision to adopt organic farming methods and renewable sources of energy, but also in the way we constantly monitor the water in our pool and meticulously control the products used for its maintenance. Powered by photovoltaic panels, the purifier is continuously used to filter the water, which means that the water is always moving and the emission of chlorine is reduced to a minimum.

The pool, which is immersed in the green of the garden, measures 14 X 7 meters, depth from 1,40m to 2,00m.

On the poolside, there are sun loungers, deckchairs and large sun umbrellas. Small children will enjoy playing in the playground next to the pool. If you want to dine outdoors, opposite the pool, beneath a pretty pergola, there is a barbecue area, equipped with large grill, tables and chairs.

We’ve worked a lot to make the house become liveable again and we are quite satisfied with the result. Today the property produces strictly organic cereals, legumes, vegetables, honey and olive oil. Our guests love the silence, the sunsets over the Crete and our heartiness.

Crete Senesi

Welcome to the world’s most photographed panorama! There is indeed no piece of this landscape left that has not already become a snapshot. A wide sea of clay spreads out over the countryside Southeast of Siena: one evocative, soft hill follows the other, the few forests leave space to the endless stretches of wheat fields and grassland, able to change their colours with the succession of the seasons.

The Crete Senesi are indeed a quite different world. Someone has defined them as “moonscape”, but only because he hasn’t seen them in spring, when the explosion of nature makes the fields become green waves, caressed by the wind, or in autumn, when the farmers’ ploughs bring the clay back to the surface, with its beautiful violet shimmer.

The Crete are, without doubt, a land of agriculture. In the first place a land of wheat and land of the shepherds. Not by chance it’s famous for its sheep’s milk cheese, unique like the unmistakable flavour of the wild herbs that give their aroma to the sheep’s milk. Land of olive groves that produce the fine “Terre di Siena” oil with guarantee of origin (Dop). And right here in the area of the Crete one of the rarest and finest white truffles of Italy can be found.

In this clayey region with its endless horizons we do not find a lot of stone. Almost everything is made of bricks and therefore made of clay: the beautiful farmhouses that stay isolated on the top of a hill, lined by high cypress trees; the magnificent monuments that mark the territory like cardinal points, from the Abbey of Monte Oliveto (spiritual headquarter of the Crete Senesi, with a marvellous cloister with 16th century frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli) to the fortified medieval storehouse for wheat Grancia di Cuna, from the castle of San Giovanni d’Asso to the city walls of Buonconvento.

Only around Rapolano, land of the hot springs and the travertine, stone is a protagonist. Stone and bricks meet harmoniously in Asciano, chief city of this territory centuries ago, where we can admire side by side the Sienese city walls of the 14th century, the Romanesque architecture of the Basilica of Sant’Agata and the artistic treasures of Palazzo Corboli, a glorious medieval city palace that today houses a rich museum.

Review for stay from 06 June 2016 to 11 June 2016

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place, the apartment is basic but clean. The swimming pool area is very nice and there are lots of things to entertain yourself like table tennis etc. The host seems nice but she did not give much of an introduction or even share the WiFi code.
