Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in San Casciano In Val di Pesa - PODERE LA VILLA

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

PODERE LA VILLA is one of the most charming typical Tuscan houses of the area. It is located in the hilly Chianti countryside, just a few minutes outside of San Casciano where there is a large grocery store, as well as a pharmacy, shops and restaurants. It is an easy drive to Florence (15 Km), Siena (60 km), and Pisa (70 Km). From here you can easily get to San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo, and many other fascinating local villages.

Podere la Villa is ideal for anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful place in the heart of the Chianti Classico wine region. There are a number of easy, beautiful hikes to take directly from our property that take you through vineyards and wooded areas. Or, just relax at home in one of the many lovely eating/lounging areas, or by the panoramic pool (open mid May to mid October). It is especially gorgeous here both in the Spring and in September-October during harvest.

About Owner/Property Manager

WHY I LOVE THIS SPOT:

Podere La Villa is situated in a gorgeous Tuscan valley where the sometimes lush, sometimes rugged landscape alternately recalls renaissance paintings by masters such as Leonardo da Vinci or Benozzo Gozzoli. Despite the quiet, rural feel, we are very strategically located, just 15 km from Florence.

The estate has a total of 10 hectares (25 acres), which include vineyards, olive groves, woods and a small lake. The 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyards are in the Chianti Classico wine region and comprise Sangiovese grapes (80%) and Merlot grapes (20%). We have adopted sustainable farming techniques, although we are not yet certified as organic farmers. Our goal is to respect and preserve the surrounding environment as much as possible. All our grapes are hand-picked and produced in limited quantities to obtain the best quality.

We make our own wine from the 2 hectares (5 acres) of vineyards alongside the Villa, as these grapes receive the most sunlight. We sell the remaining grapes to other Tuscan wine estates. We love this land, our roots are very deep here. We like to share all this with our guests and friends.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Chianti

In this very unique corner of Tuscany, twenty minutes South of Florence, among gorgeous views and colors, we offer you a very special stay off the beaten tracks of touristic routes.

A very charming and spacious unit of about 200 square mters in a refurbished farmhouse situated near the town of San Casciano (18 Km from Florence, 60 km from Siena, 70 Km from Pisa) in the heart of the Chianti Classico area.

Podere la Villa is an ideal stay for for anyone who would like to spend a relaxing and peaceful time "far from the madding crowd". It is also a perfect spot for family reunions and for family with children. Podere la Villa is located near Florence and Siena and close to the numerous and fascinating Tuscan towns such as San Gimignano, Volterra and all the little villages of the Chianti Classico area.

Interesting and facinating walks all around the property are possible all year through, especially recommended during the harvest time – September and October, and in the Spring time.

The villa is extremely well positioned, furnished and equipped. Guests particularly appreciate that there are several areas to eat / relax which make the villa very flexible.

A beautiful swimming pool has been built in one of the most panoramic areas of the estate, which is open from mid May until Mid October.
