Delightful in every way
The classic Tuscan farm house from the 15th century offers 2 upstairs apartments for guests. Our friendly and helpful hosts, Roberto and Simona live downstairs. Podere dell'Orto is a lovely working organic farm with beautifully maintained grape vines and olive trees.
Our 2 bedroom apartment was charming, clean and quiet and we found it comfortable for both cooking and relaxing. Our windows opened into Olive trees and there were numerous seating areas around the farm with lovely views.
Just 12 km from Florence, in the northern section of the Chianti region, it is also close to some of our favorite hill towns; San Gimiango, Volterra and Radda. We enjoyed the Monday market in nearby San Casciano. Highly recommended and we look forward to returning.
Tuscany trip July 2019
Really enjoyed our stay here. Simona and Roberto were excellent hosts
Exquisite Countryside Getaway
We just returned home from our stay in the Florence countryside. What a wonderful little slice of heaven! 4 of us stayed comfortably in the 2 bedroom unit. We enjoyed making our own breakfasts and dinners and enjoying our meals in the patio area. Simona and Roberto are the most gracious hosts that you could wish for. When we planned to drive to the grocery store or to sight see in Florence, they provided us with helpful information to make our excursion easy to accomplish. It wouldn't have been as easy without their suggestions and guidance. A short walk will take you to a local pizza place or a lovely bakery/deli in the local village. A short drive and you can be at the Monday morning market in San Casciano. Staying here was the best part of our visit to Italy! I will be recommending this location to friends and family.
Great base for exploring Tuscany
Ideal location for visiting Florence, Sienna, Pisa and everything in between. We particularly enjoyed our trips to San Gimignano, Arezzo and San Castellino.
Simona and Roberto are delightful hosts and made us feel most welcome on their immaculate and beautiful farm. We had mixed weather during our week long stay but never the less felt relaxed and at home at this property. Worth noting is the super large comfortable bed in a spacious bedroom and the tasty fresh hens eggs presented to us by Roberto on our arrival. The three hens were very friendly and we enjoyed watching them and other wildlife during our time on the farm.
This was an amazing place to stay. The hosts met us at the gate and provided a beautiful place for us to stay. Our arrival was later than expected and they made sure we had food for breakfast the next day. When we met them the next day they took time to explain the area and gave us maps and places to go. They were accessible to us the whole time to answer questions and help with any needs including laundry. The farm is truly picturesque and very home-like. Each day when we retired for the day, it was like going home. The apartment was quiet, warm and friendly. It was close to Florence and the bus system, so we could travel to cities and return to the country each day. We were grateful to be able to stay on this beautiful farm in Tuscany.
Take the A1 Milano-Roma motorway exitat Firenze Certosa. Take road S2 in the direction of Siena-Greve.
When you come to an area called 'Gli Scopet' turn right, crossing over a stream on a bridge. Follow in the direction of Sant'Andrea in Percussina.
Follow this road uphill for approx 4 km and pass through the town of Sant'Andrea in Percussina. Continue until you come to a road junction. Turn right in the direction of Chiesanuova. Less than 100 metres from the junction, to your left, you will see a small unmade road which leads to Podere dell'Orto.
This is a little farm to familiar management.
This is the perfect setting for peaceful country life in Chianti with the convenience of famous Tuscan towns within easy reach.
