About the property

Tuscan Cottage with pool and great hill views. Ideal for families and couples. Just 1 km from the village.

The Cottage Leccio is located in the heart of the Siena countryside, just 1 Km from the lovely medieval village of Casole ( reachble in 10 min by walking) and few kilometers from Siena (30km), Florence (60km), San Gimignano (15km), Volterra (20km), Chianti (8km) and Val d'Elsa, a perfect place to visit the main attractions of Tuscany. The Cottage is ideal for a holiday in search of tranquillity, thanks to the comfortable and elegant environment, the magnificent swimming pool and the picturesque, surrounding nature.

It is composed of 1 double bedroom,bedroom with 2 twin beds / 1 double bed, living room with kitchen corner, bathroom with shower, small terrace on the east side and covered patio with table and chairs. Wi fi on all outdoor areas.

The outdoor area is composed by green areas with tables to eat outdoors , a splendid swimming pool ( 6mX12m) from which you can enjoy a spectacular view over San Gimignano equipped with deckchairs and sunbeds to relax in.

The cottage is located just 1 km from the medieval village of Casole d'Elsa, reachable in 10 minutes by walking via a scenic route with lights. It recently won the orange flag of the European Union for the beauty of the landscape. Casole d'Elsa is a small medieval village located 420 m above sea level at the top of the hill. Well ventilated, it has a dry climate and pleasantly temperate. The heart of Casole is the "piazza Lucchetti", the small central square with its historic buildings dating from the Middle Ages, with narrow streets and small shops where you can buy typical products of the region or taste the delicious specialities in the restaurants on the small streets of the center... A characteristic of this small town is certainly the warmth and kindness of people who still live according to the old traditions and rhythms of life without pollution or stress.

The Cottage Leccio is part of Podere Monti Holiday House. Please contact us to request availability for other properties.

About Family Ianniciello

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.

Family Ianniciello purchased this cottage in 1950

Guestbook comments from the manager

The property is located within a one hour drive of Florence and about 30 minutes of Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano. The accommodation was comfortable and equipped with all essentials, and the pool area was spacious and clean, and never remotely crowded.

Casole d'Elsa is about a 15/20 minute walk away and that has places to eat and drink and a couple of small shops for essentials.

The owners were happy to answer any questions and were very nice. They also recommended places to eat in the local area that did not disappoint.

Good base for touring the beautiful Tuscan towns and countryside.

The accomodation was clean. We had a great time in Tuscany and the cottage was a chilled out place to be based.

Federica and her family are excellent hosts and we were bowled over by their generous hospitality! The cottage Olivo was well equipped, homely and had a lovely view. The location was perfect for exploring Tuscany; Florence, Pisa, Siena and so much!

This was Tuscany at its best; friendly reception; most comfortable, well appointed cottage. The view is unique. Our hostess was on hand to help if needed but everything was perfect. Thank you Federica and his family for everything.

Great for Touring Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd consecutive year to stay at Podere Monti (the name of this farmstead), this time for 2 weeks. The grounds around the cottage are beautiful, with a pool overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan countryside and a number of old stone buildings now mostly used as vacation rentals. The cottage itself is small, with average-quality interior and furnishings, but completely comfortable and functional. The location seemed perfect for us: 2 minutes from Casole (a beautiful medieval hilltop village much less touristed than most), 10 to 15 minutes from Menzano and Radicondili (2 other much-less-touristed and beautiful old towns), only 15 minutes from San Gimignano and 25 minutes from Siena (so you can easily time your visits to avoid the heaviest crowds if you want), maybe 30 minutes from the central Chianti villages, 45 minutes from Volterra and an hour from Firenze. The owners/managers Federica and her parents are very helpful, easy to work with, and as a bonus very charming. Federica's English is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stays there and highly recommend it. If the cottage seems to small for you, check on the other house and apartments available at the same farmstead.

a perfect place to discover Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Even though we only stayed for a short time, we received the most incredible hospitality ever. We absolutely loved the cottage - it was cozy, beautiful, clean and conveniently located - with nice views.But most impressive was the friendliness, willingness to help and overall hospitality of the owners.If you are looking for true Italian experience and not your standard hotel visit - please make sure to visit this wonderful place.

This wonderful place saved us from a bad rental ex

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice! We called to see if the cottage was available after arriving at another place we had rented that was not at all as advertised. Federica left in the middle of her dinner preparation to meet us. We were wowed when we walked in and saw an extremely clean , well laid out, and well stocked cottage. Federica gave us a tour, explained how everything worked .

The unit is well decorated in a mix of contemporary and retro styles . We had a fantastic time and wished we could have spent more than 7 nights there. It was quiet at night and the bed in the master was extremely comfortable.

Thank you, Federica, and thanks for mailing the postcard to 'Mom' for us. You're a great.
