Property description

This attractive self contained apartment adjoining the 'Podere la Fonte' has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite). Apart from the living room, it is possible to enjoy time in the kitchen-dining room where there is a wood burning fire (in addition to the central heating throughout), one more reason not to rule out a stay in the autumn or winter when perhaps you can witness or take part in the wine and olive harvests and enjoy the taste of mushrooms and the lovely colors of our surrounding woodland. But if you prefer the warm months, then you will enjoy plenty al fresco eating on your patio fitted with table and chairs under the walnut tree reserved for your own use. This may be just what you need after a trip to the nearby sandy Tuscan beaches which we find have a great pull on our guests. If you don't feel like cooking or going out to one of the many eating venues in the village or nearby, then we will supply meals can be supplied by prior arrangement with the owners.

Public tennis court (to be booked locally), 5 minutes walk. Nice natural pool in the river Cecina for splashing at ten minutes by car. Nature reserves nearby. There is always something of interest happening in this area, the heart of Tuscany. The accommodation is most comfortable in all weathers so why not consider a holiday here in the autumn or winter as well as spring and summer!

Podere La Fonte is a working farm as well as tourist residence (“Podere” is Italian for farm). The main products are olives and grapes which are grown organically and made into wine and olive oil on the farm. The wine and oil may be purchased from the farm shop and is both delicious and good value. Emmanuela also creates herbal tea infusions and a number of jams from the fruit trees on the farm.

“Il Noce”, is situated in a most spectacular position just below the ancient castellated village of Radicondoli (only five minutes walk). It has magnificent uninterrupted views over the Cecina valley and the surrounding hills, atop of which nestle Volterra, San Gimignano, Colle Val D'Elsa and many smaller villages. At night you can admire the stars from such an unspoilt vantage point while sipping the drink of your choice. Florence is one hour away and Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano just forty minutes by road. Plenty of lovely local walks and opportunity to visit natural pools in the nearby river Cecina. There are swimming pools within easy reach and in an hour you can drive to and enjoy sandy beaches just like the ancient Etruscan people did. Your hosts Emanuela and Marco look forward to welcoming you to their adjoining home. They will also give you every assistance to help you discover and understand the opportunities offered by the surrounding countryside and tourist attraction.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: Marco purchased Podere La Fonte in 1976. Since then together with his wife Emanuela they have worked with passion to make it into the superb property it is today - a self-sustaining organic farm harnessing the produce and a style of life which they are willing to make available to their guests. Marco and Emanuela Garosi purchased this farmhouse in 1976

Why the Owner Chose Radicondoli SI, Italy:
Marco grew up in Rome and had started his studies in Agriculture in Perugia when he found this unique spot close to this lovely village, immersed in such beauty. It is here he decided to realize his dream for a sustainable agricultural path. The main current products are organic oil and wine and a whole variety of vegetables and fruit. Emanuela also has a passion for herbs from which she creates delicious infusions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
La Fonte is a stone throw from Radicondoli. After a day’s sight seeing you can leave your car and relax in the village and enjoy a glass of wine or a meal with no worries. There are festival times in the spring and summer months with cultural events, street parties and communal open air eating both in Radicondoli and local villages. May 1st is a special time with singing and picnicking. To be able to walk to these events is a real treat. There is no other farm so near and Marco and Emanuela themselves take full advantage of this.
