IL PODERE - WITH PANORAMIC POOL AND BREAKFAST - WALK TO THE VILLAGE!

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Certaldo - Il Podere

Sleeps 9+1 in 5 air-conditioned bedrooms/4 bathrooms

Il Podere is a beautiful farmhouse located halfway between Florence and Siena, in the heart of the Chianti Hills. This is one of the most popular regions in central Tuscany, and the scenery around this house is of incredible beauty. Vineyards, olive groves and fields form a paradise-like landscape, which was moulded over centuries by the farmers' patient toil. The surrounding countryside resembles one immense garden. The elevated position offers a unique view. It may sound exaggerated but we find you can feel the surface of the earth here. The south side of the villa overlooks a wide valley: your eyes will wander into the distance, over the many hilltops of the Chianti landscape to the antique towers of the renowned hill town S. Gimignano. The house is part of a sixty-nine acre estate specializing in the production of extra virgin olive oil.

Please ask for the link of our home page with on-line video to receive more information. Thank you!

The original structure is an 11th century watch tower. It used to serve as a defensive tower for the nearby castle S. Maria Novella. Side wings were added later transforming the house into a farmstead. Although Il Podere has been completely restored, the old structure has been respected and original materials have been reused wherever possible. Originally the villa was furnished for private use, giving the interior ambience authenticity and conveying the charm of a private home. Typical regional features include the terracotta floors, the ceiling beams, the large fireplace with small window and the decorative pizza oven in the kitchen.

Flower beds decorate the entrance area at the north end. At the panoramic south end the garden merges into the wide, open countryside. The garden is furnished with quality teak furniture. A pergola near to the kitchen invites to relax and to enjoy outdoor meals. Sun lounges can be found by the pool, a few steps down the lawn. The pool has been recently made new, it is a 5 x 11 m rectangular pool (the online video shows still the old circular pool).

The little village of Fiano is just a mile away, with a couple of very nice restaurants, and can be reached on foot (over the fields) or in just a few minutes by car. In Fiano there is also a bar, a butcher, a grocery shop, a pharmacy, a post office and a cash machine. A supermarket, gas station, bakeries, bus stop and other services are located 7 km away in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. Certaldo is 9 km distant and has a railway station with connections to Florence and Siena. The autostrada linking Siena with Florence is just 15 minutes away.

The keyholder is fluent in English and will greet you when you arrive. She is a great cook and offers cook service. The Italian-speaking mother of the owner also lives on the estate in another farmhouse. She is on hand to help you for any question you might have.

Ground floor:

1 entrance hall

1 eat-in kitchen downstairs with access to the garden

1 TV room

1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom (bathtub)

1 external bathroom under the loggia (shower)

First floor:

1 living room with fireplace and access to a small loggia with steps to the garden

1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom (two basins, shower and separate bathtub)

1 twin bedroom (no possibility to join the beds)

1 single bedroom with addional pull-out bed (suitable for a child up to 15 years)

1 bathroom (shower)

Second floor:

1 double bedroom (can be arranged as twin bedroom) with en suite bathroom (shower)

Garden:

Garden for al fresco dining and pool (5 x 11 m)

Please note: Although completely restored Il Podere maintains its ancient structure: the kitchen, the TV room and the yellow bedroom, although at the ground floor are not on the same level. Guests with walking difficulties have to know that although they can access the yellow bedroom and the kitchen from the exterior (avoiding the internal steps), the rest of the floor has short flights of stairs throughout. The access to the last floor bedroom is 20 cm lower than usual, so watch your head going up to this bedroom! The beds in the twin bedroom, cannot be joined together as a double bed: they sit against opposite walls with a doorway in between.

Il Podere is located in the most coveted region of Tuscany: in the heart of the Chianti region half-way Florence and Siena (the two cities are both about 35 km away). The scenery around this house is of incredible beauty; this is one of the most popular regions between Florence and Siena. Vineyards, olive groves and fields form a paradise-like landscape, which was moulded over centuries by the farmers' patient toil. The surrounding countryside resembles one immense garden. It may sound exaggerated but we want to say it: you can feel the surface of the globe here! Shopping can be done at the small grocery store in Fiano (2 km). There is also a bar, a butcher, a post office and a cash machine. A supermarket can be found in Certaldo (9 km). There are a number of excellent trattorias in the area. Why not try a different speciality restaurant every evening - we'll tell you where. Touring ideas: S. Gimignano 17 km, Colle Val d'Elsa 25 km, Florence 35 km, Livorno and Pisa (airport) 80 km.
