We booked a 90sqm apartment in Jan 2014. On arrival we were shown a 30sqm barn conversion. We would not have booked this ourselves. We have 2 x children. The family were extremely unhelpful to deal with. Eventually after 3 mails and speaking to them twice, they agreed to move us to the correct apartment. (They had rented out that... 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

We spent a week in this property in May 2014 and can throughly recommend it to others. We were a couple with a adult daughter so property was fine for our needs.

Podere Monti it is just a great place to be with your family! It has all the necessary facilities for families with children. At very short distances you have very known truistic attractions like: San Gimignano, Volterra, but also less known and extremely beautiful places as: Mensano or Radicondoli. Federica and her family are very friendly and helpful. Thank you... More

The accommodation itself (we stayed in the individual Noce cottage so had no direct neighbours) was well-equipped and spacious enough for 4 even though there were only 2 of us. It was well decorated and maintained, clean and comfortable, with excellent views from some rooms over he Tuscan countryside. Federica greeted us and explained everything to us, and seemed very...

Very beautiful environment, view on the country from the swimming pool. Accomodation in the flat disapponting in spite of its spacious side. Poor soundproofing between the appartments upstairs and downstairs. The apartment where we stayed (above) is not convenient to have the meals outside, the table associated to the flat being without any privacy in front of the flat downstairs.... More

What a beautiful setting! The view from the pool across the Tuscan countryside is classic, with San Gimignano clearly visible in the distance. We also much enjoyed the people and the ambience of the local hill town of Casole with its charming scupltures - and a steep walk up the hill which we needed after our consumption of food and...
