We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday at Podere Monti. My husband, two teenage daughters and myself stayed in the two-bedroomed apartment, which was extremely clean, and simply furnished in traditional style. The bedrooms were a good size with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The kitchenette area has fridge freezer, microwave and hob (no oven - so if you wanted to create something fancy that could be tricky - but who wants to be a slave to the kitchen on holiday!) Maybe some basics in the kitchen like salt, pepper and sugar would have been helpful. The whole of Podere Monti is well maintained, as is the pool and the view from this is stunning. We could have been quite content to stay by the pool all day listening to the crickets and watching the swallows diving, however that would have been a shame as the location is wonderful for visiting so many places. Casole D'Elsa is charming with several great, reasonably priced pizza/restaurants to choose from. It takes about 20 mins to walk into town (a 5 min drive). We really enjoyed San Giminagno and Volterra and a trip to Florence was great (although we did flag in the August heat after several hours of walking). The owners were very friendly and keen to give advice if needed. We were sorry to leave and would be very happy to visit again. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.
