About the property


On the rolling hills of the Black Rooster area, in the very heart of Chianti, between Radda, Castellina and Vagliagli sits Pornanino, a lovingly restored biological olive oil estate surrounded by 36 hectares of olive groves and wooded hills. The rivers Arbia and Serchio mark the boundaries.

The owner’s Franco and Lia were a part of a group of neo farmers (and friends) who came from major European and Italian cities in search of a slower-paced lifestyle where basic values of life are emphasised in everyday living. Their daughter Francesca and son-in-law Matteo have now taken on the role of cultivators and producers of the top-quality biological extra virgin olive oil with great passion, and Matteo now conducts the presentation and tasting of the oil, with Francesca who also occupies herself with the guests. The main farmhouse villa and two stone built barns, Capannino and Leccino cottages, had been restored and renovated to excellent standards and appointed with the same warm style with antique furniture enhancing beamed ceilings and cotto floors.

Pornanino is accessed by 5km of very well kept unpaved road (strada bianca). The medieval town of Castellina in Chianti with an excellent choice of restaurants, wine shops, coffee bars, COOP supermarket, grocery shops, post-office, banks and a variety of other shops is at 5km distance, Florence at 32kms and Siena at 18kms. San Gimignano, Volterra, Monteriggioni, Arezzo, Cortona and many other attractive towns are within an easy drive. The property is 9km from Radda in Chianti, another lovely hill-top medieval town with cobbled streets and also a good choice of restaurants and stores.

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 cottage in 1989

Another wonderful Tuscan experience.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Pornanino and will not be our last. Francesca, as ever, was the perfect host and could not have been more helpful. The cottages are set in an idyllic location, slightly off the beaten track but all the better for it. The local towns provide all amenities including restaurants, bars and shops. We will be back.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have spent very nice holiday in Pornanino - it was our first stay in Tuscany. The house, the garden and the pool is located in the pure nature. Quiet, no traffic noise and the beautiful scenery all around. I want to thank Francesca (super advices for our trip to Firenze) and Mateo for our pleasant experience in Tuscany.

Tout était parfait. Chambres superbes, propres et fraiches, salles de bain très propres, calme olympien au milieu des oliviers. Magnifique endroit idéalement placé au centre de la Toscane. Nous sommes accueillis par Francesca qui nous offre sa bonne humeur et sa gentillesse communicative et naturelle. Merci Matteo pour la visite de la fabrique d'huile d'olive (délicieuse). À recommander les yeux fermés.

Je n'ai qu'un seul mot MAGNIFIQUE!

Au bout d'une route agricole de cailloux (quelques kilomètres quand même mais nous avions bien été prévenus avant) , en plein milieu d'une oliveraie, se trouve la maison de Francesca qui vous accueille avec son grand sourire et sa bonne humeur. L'environnement est magnifique. Le descriptif de la maison est vraiment conforme à la réalité mais personnellement nous avons trouvé la maison encore plus belle et plus spacieuse que sur les photos. Elle est meublée avec goût, les 2 chambres sont grandes avec chacune une salle de bain, le rangement est suffisant, la literie bonne, la cuisine très bien équipée, la maison très propre et vraiment fraîche à l'intérieur (un vrai bonheur surtout quand il fait plus de 30° dehors), très belle terrasse, piscine impeccable.

L'endroit est calme et idéal pour des vacances reposantes en famille (nous y étions avec 2 enfants) et pour les amoureux de la nature.

Sur la propriété se trouve la maison familiale et une petite maison pour 2 personnes mais je dois bien être honnête nous avons rarement eu l'occasion de croiser les autres locataires car les maisons ont vraiment chacune leur intimité et leur espcace.

La maison est idéalement située pour visiter la région. Les grandes villes comme Florence et Sienne (à ne pas rater) ne sont qu'à quelques kilomètres et il est vraiment agréable de se balader dans les petits villages alentours. Les amateurs de Géocaching auront d'ailleurs l'occasion de trouver quelques belles caches dans de très beaux villages toscans. Un voiture est toutefois indispensable.

Je garderai de Francesca le souvenir d'une personne très accueillante, généreuse, disponible, discrète,serviable. Son français est impeccable. Et encore merci à Matéo pour son aide avec notre voiture :-).

C'est une adresse que je garde précieusement et que je recommanderais chaleureusement à des amis.
