Podere Le Monache set on a hillside dominates one of the picturesque and spectacular landscapes in Tuscany. Originally a convent wrapped in history Le Monache has a magical and spiritual atmosphere. Whether you are lazing by the pool or strolling in the olive grove or simply relaxing in your apartment you are in another world. Restored and converted from a farmhouse into four charming ground floor apartments. Perfect for a small or large family vacation rental.

The area is known as the heart of Tuscany. The proximity to the major cultural and historical cities such as Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca as well as small medieval towns, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Certaldo and San Miniato, will allow you to incredibly enrich your charming stay.
