The cottage Noce 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. It is in our choice not to have an official reception office. Maybe you need any assistance? or simply have a question? You can knock at our door of our home. There will be always someone available to help you! The Noce Cottage has a private location but not far from the main farm where we live.

The Noce Cottage lies in an environment one of the most beautiful that nature can offer : the beautiful Tuscan countryside, with its gentle hills dotted by the regular geometry of vineyards and olive groves. The cottage is a typical barn of the 1600’s, beautifully restored. Every little detail is designed to give its guests an unforgettable holiday in the countryside, among the trees and flowers. That beautiful property develops on two levels. On ground floor there is the sitting room with sofas and satellite tv;the kitchenette very fully equipped with fridge, refrigerator, oven, microwave, 4 burner gas, dishwasher, coffee machine,kettle,toaster etc. On ground floor there is also one of the two bathrooms with XL shower. On first floor there are the 2 very bright and cozy bedrooms with air conditioned. The second bathroom is in romantic tuscan style with XL shower and bright skylight. In front of entrance there is a panoramic patio with view over the hills ,equipped with table,chairs and parasol. The entire property is sourrounded by a green private enclosed garden where one can relax and enjoy the Tuscan sun. The outdoor areas are covered by the wi fi connection. The cottage is connected with the Village Casole by a safe path ( 1 km- 10 min by walking).

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.

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.

About Federica ->

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

I loved my holiday at that place (as did my Mum and my three grown up kids). The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, the owners are a delight, and the view from the pool is breathtaking. Great Barbecue area, and well equipped kitchen in a very comfortable villa. Gardens well kept. Only negative was the lack of Wifi. A gentle 20 minute walk from the nearby town of Casole D'Elsa, which (though small) is charming and interesting. A trip up the bell tower for the commanding views is a must. It has a couple of good restaurants, and one excellent one, a great baker and butcher and a small supermarket. A great location for viewing the Tuscany countryside, with many beautiful villages nearby or just 45 minutes from Sienna and 1hr 15 from Florence, and hour from the beach. Would definitely recommend it.

D.F from Sheffield August 2014

Warm welcome. Clean house. Perfect pool. Romantic place. Simply perfect. We will definitely come back!!

Nice stay...perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

The Noce Cottage was very nice: tastefully decorated, spacious and clean. It was great to have a table in the kitchen area for everyone to enjoy their breakfast together. We were 4 people- 2 adults and 2 children under two. My daughter loved the big terrace and exploring the garden.

Cottage Noce - the best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in September 2016. It was part of a month-long holiday in Italy and this was by far the best part of that month! The cottage is 250-year-old building restored by a master craftsman in true Tuscan style. The furniture was comfortable and chosen to blend with the decor. Having a kitchen to cook in worked very well for us. We loved the proximity to the charming towns Casole as well as the many hill towns in the area. The property is so peaceful and the pool was exquisite with a lovely view . We will return again I am sure.

The highlight of our trip to Italy

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about Podere Monti.Everything exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a lovely Cottage ( Noce) and fell in love with the cozy feeling of our room and the little reading nook overlooking Tuscan hills. The pool was another plus! The nearby town was also fantastic. We hope to come back again.

Should have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights after a days driving around .

The Villa is beautifull and our bedroom which was luxurious was better than many 4 or 5 star hotels we have stayed in and the owner Federica was the perfect host. I actually felt guilty that we had only booked for 5 nights as she went to so much trouble to welcome us. Definitely would stay there again but for longer next time.

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 (60 km away-40 min drive) 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.
