Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Castellina in Chianti - Villa Pomona

4 & 2 bedrooms, 2 &1 bathrooms, sleping 8 & 4

POMONA is a traditional estate situated in the heart of the Chianti countryside, near the ancient city of Siena. The oldest buildings of the farm date back to the 1750s. The estate maintains its original structure and still comprises the residential villa, farmhouses, storehouses and the winery. This is what makes it fascinating even today – it conveys a real impression of a traditional Tuscan country estate, surrounded by gardens, olive groves and vineyards. In addition to producing wine and olive oil, the family now runs a small holiday business based in the old villa, following the principles of sustainability and eco-friendly solutions. The villa is surrounded on three sides by a large courtyard shaded by three century-old Lebanon cedars. Embedded in the orchards and gardens and surrounded by olive and fruit trees guest can enjoy a swimming pool offering spectacular views over the rolling hills. Two apartments with independent entrances are available for rent.

Pomona is a working farm that produces organic extra virgin olive oil and Chianti Classico wine which are available for tasting and purchase.

Pomona -La Villa- Maastricht, The Netherlands

  • 5 of 5

We rented La Villa in september. We have two kids, twins, they where nearly two years old then. We loved our stay. The owners are very friendly. The house is old (about 300 years) but very nice if you like this style.

We had everything we needed. The boys liked the garden to play and the swimmingpool very much (There is a gate to keep the kids in the garden and out of the pool). The surroundings are very nice.The owners live nextdoor, but there is all the privacy you need. The wine and olive oil are very good. There are a lot of small villages to visit nearby. And the big ones a little further.

We will be sure to visit Pomona again!

Tuscan Dream

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this rustic villa in August 2010 with my children and parents. It was an absolutely stunning location and despite arriving very late Inge came out to warmly greet us and show us round. The accomodation was large and sprawling with lots of room foe the children to explore. The pool is set away from the villa which made it easy for me to control when the children went swimming. Inge was the perfect host, very friendly and a mine of local information. We visited Firenze for a few days during our stay and she gave us lots of good advice on where the best places were to visit. At the end of our stay we loaded up on the excellant Chianti and olive oil. Inge embraced us like family and we certainly were sorry to go.

Pomona review - August 2008

  • 4 of 5

Charming guests. Landscape is just marvelous. Very close to Sienna. The garden and swimming pool are great. The house is large but kitchen and bathrooms need to be renewed. Perfect for families with kids or 2 families. Guests are on the same property so can be easily contacted for any recommendation or issue. Internet not available in the rental property but at the guest property. Very good place for visiting Chianti, Florence, Sienna, San Giminiano...

Toskana wie aus dem Bilderbuch

  • 5 of 5

Villa Pomona liegt vor den Toren Sienas und ist wirklich eine italienische Villa, wie man sie sich aus dem Bilderbuch vorstellt. Sie liegt in einem wundervollen Park voller Blumen und alter Bäume mit Blick über die Weinberge des Anwesens. Die Ausstattungen der Wohnungen besteht weitgehend aus originalen Antiquitäten (ausser Bäder und Matratzen), der Pool ist riesig und bestens geflegt. Für die Kinder gibt es noch ein Trampolin. Die Villa ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Toskana oder auch um einfach die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Man kann in die Weinherstellung hineinschnuppern und Frau Raspi ist die perfekte Informationsquelle für Ausflüge nach nah und fern. Wir hatten eine wirklich wundervolle Zeit hier.

Toskana erleben

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten hier mit Freunden zwei sehr erfüllte Ferienwochen. Die Lage dieses alten Gutes im Herzen der Toskana ist ideal für den Besuch der kulturellen Zentren sowie für Wanderungen in der wunderschönen Umgebung oder einfach nur zum Relaxen am gepflegten Pool. Das Haus selbst befindet sich schon sehr lange im Besitz der Familie. Hier im Herrenhaus traf man sich im Sommer um das Wochenende auf dem Land zu verbringen. Die große Wohnküche mit dem riesigen offenen Herd, die Schlafzimmer mit dem stilvollen Mobiliar aus dem 19. Jahrhundert, die vielen alten Bilder und Dekorationsgegenstände zeugen von der reichen Geschichte dieses Hauses - man könnte Stunden mit der Betrachtung aller Einzelheiten verbringen.

Hervorheben möchten wir noch die herzliche Aufnahme durch die Gastgeberin Ingeborg Raspi. Dank ihrer fundierten Kenntnisse erlebten wir die Toskana sehr intensiv . Und selbst das Problem einer Reifenpanne konnte mit ihrer Hilfe schnell gelöst werden.

Art und Ort des Urlaubs laden absolut zur Wiederholung ein.
