Podere Monti is situated in a glorious location with stunning views over the nearby olive groves and vineyards to San Gimignano and other traditional Tuscan hill-top towns. .A short walk into Casole d'Elsa offered terrific restaurants, shops and cafés virtually on the doorstep. Very good value for moeny.

A very well appointed cottage in a scenic location close to Casole d'Elsa, which has an excellent butcher, grocer/greengrocer/deli, bakery and a number of restaurants and bars. Federica issues a comprehensive guide to surrounding towns, restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. Highlights include visits to Volterra, Pienza and Mensano for their traditional tuscan menu. For a touch of luxury, try Il Colombaio,... More

Podere Monti is a beautiful family run, holiday farm 'complex'. My husband and stayed here with my Mum (75) The old farm has been sensitively converted into a number of accommodation options. We stayed in a single story 'cottage'. The bedrooms are airy and comfortable with plenty of storage for a summer holiday wardrobe! There is no air conditioning in... More

We stayed in the 2 storey detached property, which was superbly appointed with cool floors, modern bathrooms (excellent showers!) and fully equipped kitchen. The private terrace was a positive sun trap and the panoramic views from the terrace and pool are to die for! The only issue was the hardness of the beds & pillows...personal opinion only of course and... More

We stayed in the two bedroom ground floor apartment and had a wonderful week. Podere Monti is a collection of converted farm buildings in a peaceful but ideally situated location. Our bedrooms were spacious and freshly decorated, the kitchen was fully equipped and there are outdoor seats and tables too. The shower was great, which really matters! Podere Monti has... More

Federica and her family work very hard to keep Podere Monti in tip top condition. The pool and surrounding areas are beautiful and the accommodation is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Casole d'Elsa is a lovely village with a good community feel rather than being touristy. Our friends and ourselves spent a gorgeous week in the two bedroomed detached cottage... More

This was a really wonderful rural spot from which to explore Tuscany. Very quiet with incredibly picturesque Tuscan views, and the small, very quaint and relatively tourist-free village of Casole only two minutes away. Easy drives to many other small hilltop towns, 1 hour from Firenze and 30 minutes from Siena. The house, though small, was completely adequate for us... More

My friend and I spent the most fabulous week in Casa Noce, a two bed roomed house with its own patio and splendid views.

We're from rural Minnesota, and took our two mid-20's sons and one girlfriend on a 10 day trip to Italy in mid-May, 2013, which included two nights at Podere Monti. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage and it worked well for us -- clean and comfortable, and the kitchen had enough items to cook a few meals. Enjoyed pizza... More
