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.

Federica & Family

Federica -> www.poderemonti.net purchased this apartment in 1950

What makes this apartment unique

Our holiday house is fully managed by our family without any intermediary or travel agent. Customers will have the opportunity to be in contact with us since the beginning of the booking and receive assistance throughout the duration of their holidays. We are happy to provide information, advices and make reservations of the great museums of Florence, to avoid long touristic queues.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at Podere Monti for 2 weeks in May 2013. The property is located within a one hour drive of Florence and about 30 minutes of Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano. You can also venture further afield and get to Lucca, Perugia and the coast in a couple of hours.

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.

Clean, comfortable and cozy house

  • 5 of 5

It is a truly charming place offering the privacy you need as a family and at the same time the convenience of being close enough to walk to Casole. The place was very clean and thoughtfully renovated.

Further Details:

Siena is one of the most beautiful and visited cities of art in Italy. The city of the Palio is set between the greenery of Val d'Elsa, the hills of Chianti, Amiata mountain and the Crete Senesi. The city is of human dimensions and has maintained intact the charm of a medieval town, with its alleys that wind around the heart of the city, the renowned Piazza del Campo. The Palio is one of the marvels of Italian tradition.

Florence is known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its works of art and museums are the destination each year of millions of visitors. The Tuscan chief town is a world patrimony of Unesco, an acknowledgement that highlights its artistic and architectural greatness. It is impossible to describe the charm of Piazza della Signoria, the cathedral, the Old Bridge... You just have to see it.

The town in Val di Cecina results from a meeting of different historic periods. Volterra retains a considerable historic centre of Etruscan origin, with its Roman ruins and medieval buildings, the Cathedral and the Palazzo dei Priori, which are the nerve centre of the town. The surrounding area provides the desert "salt works" and the "towers" of the geothermic area of Larderello.

San Gimignano is located on the hills north of Siena and shines in the heart of Val d'Elsa due to its beauty and charm. The town is a mix of splendid alleys and breathtaking views, where you seem to have gone right back to medieval times. The area surrounding San Gimignano includes charming, flowing hills from where you can admire the picturesque landscape and enjoy quiet walks.

The area is surrounded by more or less hidden gems. Near the Podere Monti holiday homes you can admire:

- the beauty of Poggibonsi with Cassero, Fonte delle Fate and the Church of San Lucchese

- Colle Val d'Elsa and the charm of the old area

- Monteriggioni and its castle that is unique in Italy

- Certaldo Alto
