About the Property

Limonaia is a charming independent little house for two

Limonaia
Limonaia is a charming independent 55m2 little house for two located on the beautifully restored Podere Banditella property. It is located close to Belvedere, which is an an apartment located in a main house. Limonaia can be rented together with Belvedere or separately depending on availability.

Limonaia offers comfortable accommodation for two. It includes an air conditioned/heating bedroom with a queen size bed, a bath with shower and a beautiful great room/kitchen with a wood burning pizza oven. It has access to two private terraces and a beautiful 4X12m pool available for the guests in Banditella. The interiors are tastefully furnished and equipped. The kitchen is ready for those who enjoy cooking their own meals or like to bake or cook in a real wood burning oven.

WiFi, Sat TV, coffee/tea, olive oil, condiments and more are complimentary. The laundry is available for the guests. All services, including weekly cleaning and change of linen are included in the price. The air conditioning/heating is paid according to consumption. There is no hidden cost anywhere.


Podere Banditella is a beautifully restored property in Tuscany, which consists of three houses situated on a panoramic hill at the famous Strada di Vino Nobile between lively towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. The rental units are an independent house called Limonaia and an independent apartment in the main house called Belvedere.

A typical Tuscan cypress lined via bianca connects the main road with a property that is surrounded by vineyards, including those belonging to the highly acclaimed Avignonesi and Antinori wineries. The town of Montalcino, world famous for its Brunello wine is also nearby. Our guests will enjoy the local foods and wines, as well as, the proximity of a myriad of historically important small and large, etruscan, medieval and renaissance towns. Among them are Cortona, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, Pienza, Montalcino, Castiglion del Lago and more.

The surrounding roads are frequently used by the sport and tourist bikers, so if you like biking bring your bike or have it rented , many people do.

We are in a prominent wine and olive oil production area, so consider that from time to time, depending on the season, you will hear some noises from the fields around.

At this time there are no specific house rules other than mutual respect, respect for the nature and keeping the premises clean; you will notice that we keep the houses and premises impeccably clean. We also ask all the guests not to smoke inside the premises.

The guests with limited mobility or on wheelchair can move freely around at the ground floor levels of Belvedere and Limonaia. In case of emergencies there is a modern hospital with all emergency services in a proximity of approx. 10 km.

Both a cat and dog reside on the property. They are friendly and most of the time stay in the owner residence area. We ask the guests not to bring their pets to the property.

Minimum stay is three nights.

A typical Tuscan cypress lined via bianca connects the main road with a property that is surrounded by vineyards, including those belonging to the highly acclaimed Avignonesi and Antinori wineries. The town of Montalcino, world famous for its Brunello wine is also nearby. Our guests will enjoy the local foods and wines, as well as, the proximity of a myriad of historically important small and large, etruscan, medieval and renaissance towns. Among them are Cortona, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, Pienza, Montalcino, Castiglion del Lago and more.

What makes Podere Banditella particularly special is its fantastic location in Italy. From here you can reach some more distant important Italian destinations, not just in Tuscany and Umbria, but even within a day, cities like Rome, Florence, Pisa, Bologna and more; or the coasts of the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic sea. There are three train stations within about 15 minutes by car. From there you can go anywhere you want in Italy. The nearest airport is in Perugia. Rome and Florence airports are some two hours away. There are Taxi services available, but we advise that you rent a car. And of course, if you prefer to stay home, you can cook, barbecue, read or just do nothing enjoying the pool. Wine and good food is plentiful. Reasonably priced restaurants are nearby.
