Eco-friendly Podere Scopicciolo with infinity pool, pizza oven and welcome dinner

Bedrooms 7
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7.0 Bathrooms, 12 Sleeps

Immersed in the rolling Tuscan countryside, this renovated 18th-century home preserves its traditional architecture and offers guests one of the most authentic Italian experiences available at our villas in Tuscany.

Start your stay at PodereScopicciolo with a tour of the property, a Tuscan-style welcome dinner, and Prosecco toast with your hosts. The villa owners live in a separate pavilion on the property, and will be happy to share their local recommendations for discovering all that Tuscany has to offer!

Relax on the lounge chairs by the infinity edge pool surrounding by herb and rose gardens. Have your morning coffee in the gazebo set on a stone patio while enjoying the views. Later, enjoy an alfresco meal at the wrought-iron table, with food prepared on the wood-fired stone barbecue and pizza oven, or in the gourmet kitchen.

This villa was restored in 2010 with state-of-the-art building systems such as a ventilated roof and insulated fixtures. A geothermal system, combined with a radiant system under the floors, provides a cellar effect temperature in summer with less humidity in the air (thanks to dehumidifiers) and regular heating in winter. Thermostats in each room can customize the temperature with a few hours response time (depending on the outside temperature).The interior is furnished with family heirlooms, contemporary art and antique carpets.

Accommodating up to 12 guests, the villas bedrooms are divided between the main villa, with six bedrooms, and a guesthouse. On the ground floor youll find a king-sized bedroom with a private entrance to the garden as well as a smaller loft-style single bedroom. Upstairs are four ensuite bedrooms, including the master suite, with a walk-in closet and fireplace. The guesthouse features a king-size bed in the upstairs loft, as well a kitchenette, two bathrooms, and a living room with a sofa bed.

The small hill town of Casole dElsa is a five-minute drive away, with local restaurants and cafes. PodereScopicciolo is an ideal base for exploring Tuscanys attractions, from the historic cities of Florence and Siena, to the vineyards of the Chianti wine region.

A Great 70th birthday!

  • 5 of 5

We went with friends and family for a lovely two adventure. We spent time visiting small surrounding towns, Florence and Chianti to wine taste. We had Anna Maria cook of a few nights, she was charming and an accomplished "cook" ( her word). We also had the pizza maker for two nights, she was terrific and her tiramisu was the best. A good time was had by all, from 2-71.

House was terrific... We were a family group of 8 adults and 12 children(10-16 yrs,).... plenty of space for all... the pool was a wonderful end of day occurrence... having a cook 3 nights and a pizza night was the perfect ending to busy days..

Absolutely more than met expectations

  • 5 of 5

Podere Scopiccio, situated in some of the most stunning Tuscan landscape, was all we dreamed of, each room spotlessly beautiful, cool and filled with light. Hosts Cecilia and Marco are warm and accommodating people and went out of their way to create a seamless experience. We woke in the morning to the distant sound of bells as the sheep from a neighbouring farm made their way to the pasture. The kids spent hours in the pool. And evenings around the large family table on the patio will forever be part of our family memory. While the communal space was more than enough for all 10 of us, each couple and child had their own private space with separate bath, making easy to combine families and age groups for an extended period.

My partner and I celebrated our wedding there. Cecelia made recommendations that helped us create a perfect Italian wedding and accommodated every need to make it an experience none of us or our guests will ever forget. I would return in a heartbeat.

We had an amazing family week at Podere Scopicciolo. We could not have asked for a better home for our family of 8, plenty of space. The home is beautiful, comfortable, well appointed, no details missing, amazing sheets, pillows and towels. 10/10 and 5 stars! The exterior spaces are gorgeous with beautiful views every directions. Sunset time was a treat every night. Meals by Anna-Maria were delicious, pizza night a HUGE hit. Marco and Cecilia always available if help was needed. We loved the location, it permitted us to visit so many wonderful spots and coming back home every end of day was a joy! We will never forget our Tuscan vacation. Thank you!

Beyond expectations and the perfect Tuscany experience!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was spectacular!

Picture perfect from the setting of the villa to the high-end finishes and furnishings. The outdoor dining/lounging area, kitchen and pool area were our favorite spots. Plus we loved the sound of the sheep being herded in the surrounding meadows.

Cecilia and Marco were perfect hosts but non-intrusive and Anna Maria's cooking was amazing. She cooked our welcome dinner and then we had her prepare two other meals. Some of the best food while in Tuscany for sure.

All five couples raved about the experience, quality of the villa and the food.
