Radicondoli house description

Stunning ancient Tuscan 'podere' (farmhouse) in the very heart of Tuscany conveniently located within 1 hour motoring of Florence, Siena, Sangimignano, Volterra, sandy beaches.

The owner has devoted a great deal of attention to detail in the sensitive modernization of this large structure, to enhance the original beauty with an eye to the enjoyment of the residents. To this end features such as a huge fireplace and large open plan areas have been maintained to give the whole space a feeling of airy brightness conducive to a sensation of tranquility, an ideal location to recharge ones energy away from the humdrum of daily life. A surprising achievement given that Radicondoli, the local municipality and ancient unspoiled medieval fortress is only 5 minutes away and Belforte, the nearest medieval fortress only 10 minutes on foot!

Radicondoli has no less than five restaurants open all year round. Food can be enjoyed in the setting of the truly breathtaking views, olive groves and vineyards

Colletalli and Radicondoli exude the true essence of that part of Tuscany as yet unspoiled, and not so well known. Their ancient origin so evident in their very structure, with every stone and brick revealing a sequence of caring and sage adaptation through centuries.

Equally around you is the visual beauty of generations of good farmland husbandry. This age long labor, apparently harnessed solely so that you may indulge in a culinary feast. Olive oil, wine, homemade pasta and vegetables aplenty. You can work this out, if you wish, by walking, cycling or horse riding along the meandering tracks and lanes often flanked by the characteristic and poetic Cyprus trees, and always inviting you closer to nature. Away from the commercial trappings of mass tourism, you will be rewarded by sudden and pleasant encounters with a wealth of medieval fortresses, churches and small hamlets which are dotted around the gentle hills and meet people enjoying and willing to share their slow pace of life.
