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. Federica & Family
Federica purchased this Farmhouse in 1950
Why Federica chose Val d'Elsa
The area lends itself to a fun filled family holiday, especially when you are interested about the local culture, traditions and meeting the Tuscans. Casole d'elsa is just 1 km from the Holiday House ( there is a well mantained path , illuminated at night) and it is a lovely little town with an exceptionally packed social calendar. You will always find concerts , markets , activities and events that will bring you into the authentic atmosphere.
What makes this Farmhouse 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.

Federica & Family
Beautiful environment, very friendly hosts, well equipped clean apartment.
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.
many thanks for your visit and review and apologise for my late reply. I remember very well of you and your lovely family.
Thanks for your time for having described so well your experience here in Tuscany and in particular at Ciliegio Apartment. I am very happy to read that you enjoy accommodation and our region. We are surrounded by small gems such as the lovely Tuscan villages and famous art cities. The Chianti is a few minutes drive away is a wonderful destination. Thanks again for everything.
Take care of you
Federica & Family
Excellent choice for my family. We rented a two bedroom apartment for 1 week. The house was very very clean and comfortable. I recommend this to anyone and am already planning to return.
Many thanks for your review. You are a special person and I hope to see you again one day, here in Tuscany or around the world. I wish you all the best,
Great place to explore Tuscany
the house was perfect for my family. Rooms are large and beautifully furnished, clean and bright. Owners were very kind and accommodating of our very late arrival, and although we had some confusion over the security deposit, we were able to work it out. Location is very close to Casole and convenient to Siena, and there are grocery stores nearby if you want to cook in the fabulous kitchen. We would love to come back again some day!
We thank you very much for being our guests , it is really important for us to know that we leave such good memories on guests, that they decide to come back.
Thank you for your kind words about us and really hope from heart to meet you again.
A presto <3
We can't wait to return there!
We stayed for 7 days in this little piece of Paradise. The apartment is superb - great kitchen and facilities.heating is efficient, and the view from the pool is breathtaking.
We thank you very much for being our guests and for this review.
I really hope to host you here again some day.
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.
We would love to thank you for such an amazing review.
We are so happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at Podere Monti so much!
