Podere Leccetro is a farm holiday cottage situated in the natural Park of Val di Merse, only a 30-minute drive from Siena city centre. The farm, situated in a glade circled by woods of elm, oak and chestnut trees, is surrounded by lush, green lawns and has been made out of an old outbuilding hayloft-stable where my wife and I live and work.
Here you can find the quiet beauty of Tuscan countryside without being too far from the city and from many other natural, cultural and historical sites which characterize our amazing province.
The external structure of the antique hayloft- stall has not been modified while the interior has been entirely redecorated trying to keep the style of our area both in the materials and in the furniture. We have restored some of the old family furniture ourselves trying to be environmentally friendly and as much as possible in harmony with nature.
It is a two-storey cottage with a stair that links the two parts. On the ground floor there is a living room, a kitchen with a fireplace, a double room and a bathroom; on the first floor one more bedrooms with bathrooms. In this bedroom you can open a sofa bed.
The cottage is full of light, due to the big windows from where you can admire the beauty of the woods and hills all around.
The main entrance is from the garden and has no barriers – the ideal solution for families travelling with small children or with disabled people.
The garden is totally fenced so do not hesitate to bring your dog. We love animals.
Guests can also enjoy the whole lawn surrounding the house, to have meals outside using the wooden table and benches we made, relax in the shade of the old trees or to sunbath and cool down with our solar shower.
