This is a perfect place to explore Tuscany. Sights like San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti area, even Florence or a sea coast are within an easy reach by car. On the other hand Podere Le Monache offers a serene atmosphere for just enjoying at the swimming pool with a gorgeous wide view of the landscape in front and a lovely garden around. The quiet small village sits on a hill between olive groves, small shop and a restaurant are across the street. Local people and housekeepers are very friendly and helpful, the landlady is part of the local life and cares about everything incl. rose-garden and own olive grove or vineyard. The house itself dates back to the 11th century and although bears a spirit of a once being convent, the appartments are comfortable. We had a great time and would love to come back.
