Beautiful the swimming pool and the outdoor space. Very quiet, our privacy was always respected. Florence, San Giminiano, Volterra,Siena, the Chianti region is all well in easy reach (approx half hour drive). If you want to go out for a meal we can recommend Osteria del Borgo in Mensano. All in all: a real recommendation .

This has left us feeling cold. The general atmosphere was not great, which is not what you want on a holiday. We booked a 90 square metre apartment. On arrival we were shown a 35 square metre horrible 2 bed converted shed. As we were being shown around I said there must be a mistake. The mother then started to... More

My husband and I stayed at Podere Monti into the new cottage for 6 nights at the beginning of June.The accomodation was spacious, airy, totally self contained with all the necessary amenities to cook your own meals and have incredible views from every window!

We spent 1 week in mid May, 2014. The apartment was very good value for money, good sized bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchen.All the rooms were equipped with country-style furniture. We delighted in our relaxation at the beautiful and clean pool every afternoon.Frederica and Her mother are absolutely wonderful people! They are extremely kind, and helped us immeasurably (thank you... More

Our stay in Noce cottage in the Podere Monti farmhouse apartments was generally pleasant, with some reservations. We had the privacy of being in a separate barn conversion with a private garden and terrace. Other apartments were not so private, so pay careful attention to which place you book in this place. The two bathrooms were newly converted, very clean... More

Podere Monti is a collection of small converted farm buildings and apartments on the owners' property. It sits high on a ridge overlooking two beautiful Tuscan valleys with commanding uninterrupted views for miles. Indeed I would say that the location is probably the best part of this property. There is a shared good sized swimming pool, which enjoys a great... More
