About Jérôme GLORIE
My Name is Jerome GLORIE, i love Tuscany where i come and stay since 40 years. I'm 63y, father of 2 daughters. We grow 2 ha of aromatic plants around the farmhouse, we distillate them and produce essential oils and hydrosols. I live in Brussels, Belgium.
Jérôme GLORIE purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Jérôme GLORIE chose Castellina In Chianti
The Podere exhale a exciting historical smell : 1000 years ago pilgrims travelled the property and rest in a small "hospital" (visible ruins 300m from the house). In the forest you will see wild boards and roes. Nice views on the Chianti landscape, one of the most beautiful in Europe.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Podere is a jewel in this area. very comfortable accommodation, fit for everybody, from a young couple with kids, family or less fit people. And the Chianti : the famous Chianti Classico wine, the tasteful restaurants (from a bistro to 1 star), the kindness of the people. Filomena keep the Podere and can cook for you (on demand) and will help you the make your journey unforgettable.

A relaxing few days
We had a lovely 5 nights staying near Castellina. The accommodation has been carefully renovated, and the grounds and pool are immaculate. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to do some proper cooking. Jérôme was in contact and helpful. We would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing few days in Tuscany!
Once in a lifetime type of property
We knew by the photos that the property was going to be amazing. But, when we actually arrived in person we were delighted to find what a truly special place we had found! Pictures and words cannot begin to describe just how incredible our stay was. The home was extremely clean and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed cooking breakfast each morning and eating with a romantic roaring fire. Firewood was included and already prepped for our first use. We pack picnics for lunch and we really appreciated the refrigerator with freezer so we could make a new batch of ice each day. The kitchen is more spacious than it looks in photos so we both able to work well together in the kitchen.
The bed is very comfortable and sleeping with the windows open at night was magical. As an interior designer I truly appreciated all the details of the home and even took away some ideas that I would love to recreate.
The extensive property was so fun to explore. We started each morning with a hike on one of the many trails right from property.
The spa is an absolutely one if a kind feature. Since you can reserve your private time slot you can relax and enjoy your own quiet slice of heaven!
Thank you Jerome for creating such a wonderful property to share. We are already planning a return visit with friends!
Magnifique endroit pour une réunion de famille
Nous sommes venus avec toute la famille pour profiter du plaisir d'être ensemble avec les 3 générations et le "Podere" s'y prête magnifiquement bien.Les appartements permettent à chaque famille de partager du temps ensemble et aux jeunes de se retrouver entre eux, et la grande salle à manger est géniale pour se retrouver tous. La piscine est assez grande pour héberger tout le monde et les abords sont très soignés pour différentes activités : les ados jouent aux fléchettes et nous faisons des parties de pétanque avec un verre de Chianti à la main. Filomena nous a préparer des petits-déjeuners copieux et plusieurs repas du soir. Nous avons aussi visité la région et Castellina est un point de départ facile pour Sienne, Florence, San Giminiano et Volterra.
En endroit à recommander.
Calm and privacy for us 2
They told us it was an apartment, but in fact the TORRE this is a separate little "maisonette de charme". The room gives to a private terrace where we spend time to relax, read and eat under the trees. A perfect balance between staying in a multiple apartments resort with a large pool and a spa, and being on our own. Castellina is a very nice village, 6km far away, delicious restaurants and a attracting market on the Saturday. We will come back !
cosy nest is the name of the game
a small house a few meters from the main house. Just what we needed to have some moments together.
Es war eine wunderschöne Anlage und wir hatten das Glück Sie im Mai fast ganz allein für uns zu haben.
Es ist alles wie beschrieben und mit sehr viel liebe zum Detail eingerichtet.
Wir würden es immer wieder tun...
