Overview

About the property

Podere Scopeto

Podere Scopeto is a typical Tuscan hamlet recently restored with the utmost attention to detail.

Podere Scopeto offers a unique position in a quiet and panoramic valley a twenty minute drive from Siena – the most fascinating Medioeval city in the world.

Be welcomed by a superb host, Lea Viviani, who will pamper you and make you feel at home with warmth and her marvellous veggies from the organic garden. She is a precious source of inspiring information on things to do and see in the area, she is a lively - yet unobtrusive – presence always at hand and ready to make your stay unforgettable.

Pizza parties or BBQ dinners can be organised in the panoramic loggia for all guests, a lovely opportunity to meet other families. If you are after a quieter and more intimate holiday, the private terrace or garden of each house offers just the right place to enjoy your privacy, without giving up on stunning views, comfort and the opportunity to cook and eat al fresco.

The large, panoramic infinity pool is another great reason to choose Scopeto for your holidays. Placed atop the private hill, the pool offers magnificent views of the valley beneath and a constant breeze to make your lazy days just perfect. Being equipped with abundant loungers and deck chairs, you will never need to rush out to secure your spot… just lay back and enjoy an truly relaxing holiday.

The surrounding area is the next irresistible reason to stay at Scopeto. Churches and medieval castles are spread around in the surrounding hills, like the Abbey of San Galgano, an astonishing roofless church where one can visit the world-known sword in the rock, the charming Sovicille, the beautiful Casole d’Elsa, the intriguing villages across Montagnola Senese… and if you feel like driving half an hour or slightly over, charming cities like S. Gimignano and Volterra; Chianti wine country and fab art cities like Srezzo, Cortona and Florence are excellent day trip destinations.

For the lovers of good cooking and excellent wines, the surroundings offer many resturants where you can taste simple and ancient Tuscan recipes cooked with genuine and tasty ingredients, or enotecas where you can taste the best tuscan wines such as Chianti, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, or Brunello di Montalcino.

Lovely Tuscany tranquility

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely retreat in Tuscany. The grounds are immaculate and inviting. The pool is clean with ample lounge chairs. My daughters enjoyed it for many hours. Pool towels are not provided by the facility which is unfortunate since most foreign tourists would not take up space in a suitcase with a beach towel. The apartment was clean and spacious with plenty of room for our family of four to spread out. Beds were comfortable with linens of adequate quality. The kitchen is only marginally stocked with a few pots and pans. Knives provided were dull. The pantry is bare and not even salt and pepper are provided. If you plan to cook you really need to bring everything you will need. That being said, there are many wonderful restaurants within a 15 minute drive. The road in front of the property is very busy during the day but is very quiet at night. In fact the only sounds we heard at night with our window open were crickets and birds waking us up in the morning. In the fields across the road from the property we saw many deer grazing and a group of wild boar. The wifi was weak and unreliable. Overall it was an incredibly relaxing place and if our travels bring us to Tuscany we would stay here again.
