The Leccio Cottage is part of the Holiday Farmhouse Casa Podere Monti, in Casole d'elsa.
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.
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 cottage , so it is close enough reach by foot , but not too close that the fun and laughter will spill over into the garden.
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.
The Leccio cottage 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 open from April to October included) 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.
