About Francesca LOMBARDI
We migrated from the big city many years ago, in search of a way of life with a slower pace where fundamental values are highlighted in the daily life. Matteo (my husband ) took the role of producer of extra virgin olive oil of high quality with great passion and organizes weekly seminars and tastings. I take care of the houses that we rent and do my best to offer you special holidays . We like to share our experience and local knowledge in the hope of improving your discovery of our region.
Francesca LOMBARDI purchased this House in 1989

A quiet, beautiful property in a remote part of Chianti region. Perfect for a peaceful retreat
Very friendly and helpful owners. Clean and well maintained property. Recommend going during harvest and olive oil making season in Oct. I helped harvest olives by hand and found new respect for the process and the difference between hand made olive oil vs. machine made. The only mill in the area with stone wheels, to "gently" crush olives, quite a process. Closest amenities are 3 miles away on a sometimes rough road. Must have a car. Enjoyed staying at the cottage and driving and exploring all the little villages, hamlets and cities in the area.I feel like I have made friends for life, with the property owners! Thank you Francesca and Mateo
I am a very spoiled person. I have found the perfect place to stay in the center of Chianti....which, as we know, is the center of Paradiso! This is not the first time I have stayed here. When I visit Tuscany, I stay at Podere Pornanino in a very special house. It has everything I need and want - from a comfy cozy bed, a great bathroom, a full kitchen, a peaceful living room and the best views in the world. Not to mention, my favorite Tuscan house is very clean and very safe. This place is perfection... quiet, beautiful, and a great location to go anywhere on day trips. The owners are close by and always ready to offer whatever may be needed from advise on touring the area, to finding good restaurants, to more pillows!
AND you can attend the weekly seminar regarding everything you have never known about olive oil! The owners produce a fine EVOO. The seminar is fun and very educational - you will never buy store-bought olive oil again!
Do not pass up the opportunity to experience living in authentic Chianti - there is NO better place than this!
True paradise in the middle of Chianti
Staying at Pornanino in the small remodeled house was sheer delight. It was cozy, warm, quiet... with great appliances, lots of books, TV, internet, and the most fantastic views one could ask for. Pornanino is located out in the Tuscan hills between Radda and Castellina. It is the perfect spot to settle if you want to explore during day trips... or the perfect spot to settle if you just want to get away from it all and relax. I cannot give enough praise to Francesca and Matteo for welcoming me and for being there in case i needed anything.... directions, information, or just interesting conversation. I plan to return to Pornanino this fall and am looking forward to living in my own little Tuscan house under the Tuscan sun!
Havre de paix dans un cadre enchanteur
Perdu dans la campagne Toscane sur les routes blanches qu il faut certes «apprivoiser » , ce gîte est vraiment adorable sur un grand terrain avec vue sur les oliviers !
Très cosy, très bien équipé , piscine agréable, sans oublier les échanges sympas avec Francesca (qui manquent une fois repartis) et Matteo qui peut vous presenter son savoir faire dans la fabrication authentique de l’huile d’olive.
Une addresse à garder!
Idéalement placé entre les plus beaux sites de Toscane, la maison de Francesca est un havre de paix, planté au milieu des oliviers. Tout y est fonctionnel et organisé pour un séjour de rêve. Francesca et Matteo sont charmants et surtout très disponibles, tout en discrétion. Une adresse dont on se souviendra ....
lieu paisible et accueil très chaleureux
Nous avons été très heureux de passer 15 jours dans ce lieu paisible parmi les oliviers.
La piscine après des journées bien remplies était très appréciée.
La culture des oliviers et la fabrication de l'huile d'olive de façon artisanale nous ont captivés.
L'accueil très chaleureux de Francesca et de son mari a été un immense plus pour ce séjour.
