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.
Federica & Family
Family Ianniciello purchased this cottage in 1950
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!
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.
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.
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.
We are a family of 4 with 2 children between 10 and 12yrs. Podere Monti was a great base to explore Tuscany. The pool was perfect and the house was very relaxing with geat views. We received a warm welcome at our arrival from the Owners and she was always helpful.
Everything about our 5 nights stay was superb and my boyfriend and I are already talking about returning. The owner was wonderful and every interaction we had was enjoyable.
We had rented a car and took the opportunity to explore the neighboring towns (Siena, Chianti,Volterra ) and all were easily accessible.
We stayed at 5 different hotels during our trip in PortoVenere ,Sorrento and Rome but this was hands down the best place of our trip.
Well appointed property with great views. Decoration and fittings are good. Pool is small but adequate and with great views over the countryside. Host is very pleasant and helpful and her folder on the local area was superb. Good position to explore the Tuscan area. Only draw back is that the sitting area is small and could be a squash for 4 people if the evenings were cool. Local town is small but within walking distance and provides all you need with a bar, restaurants and small butchers and grocery store. The set menu at the restaurant was excellent!!!!
Casole d'elsa is jus 1 km from the house.
In the village you can find shops, cafès, restaurants, bank, small supermarket, bakery and several small specialty shops. The village is connected with our holiday home by a safe road, with night lighting and sidewalks.
The Cottage Olivo is located very central. It is just half hour from Volterra,San Gimignano,Monteriggioni,Siena and from other lovely little villages.
