About Federica -> www.poderemonti.net

Hi everyone!

I'm Federica and Podere Monti is my home and my passion. I live here with my family and always we are dedicated to our house and a rural hospitality service always more complete.

Here you can feel love and passion because hosting is not just a job, but a vocation.

Podere Monti is a farmhouse that dates back 1600 and it has been completely renovated in the last 25 years. It took a lot of effort and sacrifice but now we are here and we want to share it with you.

The property consists of the main house where there are 3 spacious and well furnished apartments, always retaining the typical Tuscan style of the old buildings.

Not far from the main house there are 3 cottages , even those obtained from the renovation of the original buildings of the 1600s and a few meters on there is the swimming pool with the panoramic view over the hills.

We are always available for the guests throughout their stay and if you like it will not not lack tips to visit the big cities and the small towns of our region ... without forget some gastronomic visit, because you know.. in Tuscany , good food is not a problem!

Let yourselves be enthralled by the beauty of the area, from the goodness of food and the warm Tuscan hospitality.

Welcome to Podere Monti.

What makes this apartment unique

Casa Podere Monti is completly family run, and it is our own personal commitment to great care of the estate and the gardens to make this place a special one, not just for us but also for all our visitors. Me and my parents work together to keep Casa Podere Monti at its best and to give our guests a complete assistance during the stay. It is in our choice not to have an official reception office. Maybe you need any assistance? or simply have a question? You can knock at our door of our home. There will be always someone available to help you!

The concept of a family enviroment is related also to the holiday accommodations:made to be family friendly. The garden is contained and well kept , just the type of place that invites to sit outside to read a book , play games or drink a nice glass of red wine ( Chianti of course ! ).

The panoramic pool is set in a short distance from the apartments and cottages, so it is close enough reach by foot , but not too close that the fun and laughter will spill over into the garden. The apartments and the cottages are designed to appeal to adults ,couples and kids.

Beautiful environment, very friendly hosts, well equipped clean apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Federica was there to greet us despite our late arrival. The apartment was large, immaculate, and had everything we needed and more. Lots of thoughtful details, such as soap, toilet roll, salt, pepper, hand towel for the kitchen, and bedding and towel change at the end of our first week. The kitchen was well equipped for our holiday cooking with a beautiful space to sit outside and eat. There was a folder with lots of helpful information about the area. The pool was kept sparkling, and the whole area was lovely, with potted plants and a stunning view. It was a 20 minute nice walk to the village of Casole d'Elsa, which we did most evenings as it had a nice atmosphere, good restaurants and a number of musical events happening. Altogether we had a fantastic two weeks at Podere Monti, enjoyed by both us adults and our two daughters aged 10 and 11. We will definitely consider returning. Thank you to Federica and her parents for making us feel so welcome.

As advertised!

  • 5 of 5

The house was meticulously restored and is very nicely furnished and equipped. Nothing lacking. The views from the house are stupendous. The grounds are also very attractive and well-kept. The farm is ideally located, a short drive to Sienna and just 15 kms to San gimigano.
