My name is Clementina, and I have lived in Podere Santellero since 1987. I am a doctor in Chinese medicine and practice Tai Ji Juan.
I love this farmhouse because its simplicity, harmony, and silence.
During the renovation, I have tried to conserve the charm of this house that dates back to the 18th century. We have used natural materials and colours: stone, wood, cork wood and earth.
Mauro is in charge of the garden. He is a sensitive botanist and gardener.
We love animals.
Clementina Caruso purchased this chateau / country house in 1987
The Tuscan hills are definitely fascinating. The environment is healthy, clean, and tidy. The cuisine is good, and you are never without a good down-to-earth wine.
The property is a small hamlet: the houses, the barn, the hayloft, the antique wood-burning oven for pizza and bread, and the large terracotta threshing area where farmers used to thresh the grain.
The farm building offers a wonderful panoramic location offering a nice view up to the Apennines. It is set in the heart of the green Tuscan countryside, between vineyard and olive groves.
It is located in an environmental protection area, well-known for its peacefulness.
Animals are welcome, and our pets Gegia and Camelia, two adorable donkeys, will become your children's friends.
For children, there is a soccer field and a playground offering leisure and fun.
The infinity pool, boasting a view over the valley, offers pleasing relaxation after coming back from the surrounding areas. From the pool and the near the park, you will enjoy breathtaking sunsets.
The garden is well maintained, full of trees: the traditional cypresses, an exceptional one-hundred-year-old Diadora cedar, and olive trees.
You can see many species of plants.
May is a special month to admire the splendid collection of heirloom roses while experiencing a nice temperature. In May, in Florence, the Giardino dell’Iris takes place.
Nous avons passé 2 semaines très agréables en octobre dans la maison de Clementina. Nous étions 2 familles avec 4 enfants et la grande et belle maison était absolument parfaite pour que chacun puisse avoir son intimité. Les enfants ont beaucoup joué dans le beau jardin (aux balançoires notamment). La maison est très bien située pour visiter Sienne, Florence, San Gimignano et les beaux villages des environs, car l'autoroute est toute proche (c'est important car les routes sinueuses de Toscane sont belles mais parfois un peu difficiles). A quelque minutes se trouvent les villages de San Casciano et Tavarnelle qui permettent de se ravitailler facilement et de trouver, lors des marchés, d'excellents produits locaux (charcuterie et fromage... ).
Et puis, nous nous souviendrons longtemps de la gentillesse et de la disponibilité de Clementina qui s'est montrée extrêmement serviable, de bon conseil et néanmoins discrète. Ce furent de bien belles vacances d'automne !
