Lovely location with fantastic views.
We loved staying at the farmhouse! The place is very clean, quiet and welcoming. We sat out in the courtyard in the evening and had some wine and cheese. The pool are is beautiful overlooking the valley and hills beyond. We loved Casole d'Elsa. It is a quaint town high in the hills off the beaten path. We did drive to several other locations including Pisa, Sienna, Volterra and San Gimignano. Casole d'Elsa was our favorite and San Gimignano was our second favorite. The owners prepared a visitors booklet with a map of the local town, reviews on restaurants and the history and highlights of nearby towns. We could not have asked for a better visit. Thank you!
I'm so happy and honored to had the chance to host you here at our farm for one week and with great pleasure I read that you give a high value to your stay here with us. I'm pleased that you liked the accommodation and the location in general. Indeed ,it is very central to visit many interesting towns and villages close by without to forget our little lovely Casole ( 1 km away), with pleanty of nice restaurants, bars and pizzerie.
That's said, I really hope to meet you again someday and of course here at Casa Podere Monti you will be always welcomed.

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
