The Olivo Cottage is part of the beautiful framhouse Casa Podere Monti in Casole d'elsa, Siena.

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 ( Federica) 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 Olivo Cottage has a private location but not far from the main farm, where we live.

The concept of a family enviroment is related also to the holiday accommodation: 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.

Tuscan Cottage completely renovated with all the comforts of a modern home. The ground floor has a kitchen equipped for self catering with 4 burner gas cooker, oven, toaster, kettle, fridge, freezer, coffee maker and dishwasher. The cute little living room is very bright with large French doors, sofa and satellite TV. The kitchen leads to a secluded terrace at the rear of the building. The master bedroom is furnished in country Tuscan style with en-suite bathroom with shower. Upstairs feature and panoramic attic with 2 single beds and small wardrobe. The attic is opened and bright as well with two large windows and en suite bathroom in Tuscan style. The whole building is surrounded by an enclosed area and gated. The patio in front of the house is equipped with table and chairs to enjoy during the day of spectacular views over the countryside and at night the cool breeze.

The swimming pool with panoramic views is equipped with sun loungers, deck chairs and parasols. Wi fi on all outdoor areas.

The house Olivo is only 1 km from the nearby town of Casole d'Elsa, also reachable on foot via a scenic path with night lights. In Casole will find small restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, bank and post office . During summer evenings are organized weekly markets and small events starting from 9.00pm.

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.

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 1500s 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were only there one week, but wanted to stay longer.

This place is simpy amazing - I wish I could keep it a secret, but then again to be sure they are doing well I will nevertheless tell everybody how fantastic this place is. We went with our two little boys - who - just like the adults - loved the mixture of farm-and-holiday atmosphere.

So thank you and i hope anybody crossing the area of San Gimignano will come by this place!

great cottage lovely hosts in a fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and other facilities were first class Frederica and her family were great, always there for help and advice. The location was stunning, the village close by had everything you could want, restaurants, bars, shops and a supermarket but in a quaint Tuscany way. There are lots of interesting places to see close by, wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Frederica from Dawn and Steve

Nice and friendly owners and the cottage is located in a great location near Casole . Out the back windows there are rolling hills and when you walk out the front you have a lovely panoramic patio . Would most definitely recommend this accommodation.

Perfect Cottage!

We have spent 1 week at Podere Monti . It was very very clean with 2 very large and beautifully appointed bedrooms with bathrooms. The highlight is the terrace,very sunny all day. We have enjoyed it for morning breakfasts and evening dinners.

Tidy Cottage within walking distance to Casole

Easy walk to everything. The neighborhood had plenty of little village with lovely restaurants that the locals frequented. Comfortable bedrooms and clean bathrooms. I would recommend to others.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We were there October 16th - 23rd. Weather was warm during the day if it was sunny (T-shirt and shorts compatible for people from the UK, though locals were wearing jumpers, long trousers, boots, body warmers and scarves!) Quite cold over night, so need to take layers of clothing. Need to watch weather forecasts for rain etc and go places where its not going to rain.

The property was really nicely finished - good shower rooms, well decorated, clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water, adequate an beautifully clean kitchen. Cable TV was useful - could get BBC News 24 as one of the channels. Would have been improved with an extractor fan in the shower room to get rid of the steamy air - though that wouldnt have mattered in the summer as you could have just left the window open!

There were lovely panoramic views over the countryside.

The guide-book to local places put together by the owner of the property was very useful and well researched.

Note the country roads are a bit slow in Tuscany in general, though google maps seems to get the expected journey times about right.

The restaurants in the local town/village of Casole d'Elsa were good.
