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 warm & welcoming hospitality service. Here you can feel the love and passion because hosting is not just a job, but a vocation. We are always available for our guests throughout their stay and if you ask us, we will willingly share our favorites tips for visiting the big cities and the small towns of our region ... without forgetting to add some tastey information about restaurants and wine tastings, because as you know.. in Tuscany, good food is never a problem! Let yourselves be enthralled by the beauty of the area, from the goodness of food to the warm Tuscan hospitality.
Federica purchased this Farmhouse in 1950
Why Federica chose Val d'Elsa
You don’t have to go far to discover the beauty of Tuscany, just 1 km from the gardens of Casa Podere Monti, you will find the charming little town of Casole d’Elsa. You can walk into town after dinner for a delicious gelato or pizza, a leisurely coffee or just to watch the town as it comes alive under the stars. The position of Casa Podere Monti lends itself to visiting all of the monumental sites in Tuscany while still giving you ample time to enjoy the pleasant gardens and refreshing pool at the estate. The city of Siena, with its spectacular cathedral and town square, is an easy drive. You will also find that the road that leads to San Gimignano and Volterra will provide you with lots of new vistas and scenic surprises.

Lovely accommodation in the Tuscan hills.
A welcoming hostess provides lots of helpful information about the locality. The accommodation itself is very clean and was great for our party of six. The pool was particularly welcome in the summer heat (we stayed in early July) and has fine views across the countryside. The local town of Casole d’Elsa has a number of good restaurants and is a 20 - 30 minute walk away, some of the walk being uphill. There is a good selection of shops (e.g. butcher, grocer etc.) and a supermarket for your food and provisions. We ate out in the town for three evenings and would recommend Dal Brigante, which has a terrace with lovely views.
There are lots of other towns and villages to explore comfortably within an hour’s drive, plus of course Siena itself which is just over an hour away.
Great base for Tuscany
Federica and her family were great hosts; Federica provided a really useful book giving details of local towns, sites, restaurants and shops, she was also available if you needed additional advice.
The property itself is great, very accurately described. I found email contact very good, she got back to me promptly, and her English is very good.
Thanks for a great holiday Federica, hope to see you again soon! Ciao!
Gorgeous house, area, perfect hostess!
I cannot say enough good things about this rental property! Everything was clean, fresh, and well organized. The location in the rolling hills of Tuscany was unbelievable! Federica was the kindest, most helpful and gracious hostess. She even located a restaurant in the nearby village where our son could eat safely with his allergies, which was a huge relief on the night we arrived! The booking process was so easy with Federica, and she responded promptly to any questions we had. The house was quiet and the proximity to nearby sights was just perfect! You won't want to leave when you stay here!
