Overview

Farmhouse Podere Pienza is located in an area of Southern Tuscany that is still untouched by tourists with a private swimming pool. This area is popular for its appearances in postcards, books and calendars. There's a lot to do here because of its proximity to Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico; the antique thermal baths of Bagni Vignoni and San Fillipo. Florence is an easy day trip.

The 300 m2 farmhouse has been beautifully restored. Split into 2 levels, the farmhouse has a huge open living room that has access to the terrace with outdoor furnishings for dining and relaxing. There is a double bedroom and a full bathroom accessible from both the bedroom and living room. A few stairs lead to the first floor with an open dining/ kitchen with open fireplace.

The Garden has Cyprus trees, roses, lavender, ginestra and a large pine which are so typical of the area.

Minimum stay : 4 nights

Location & area

Farmhouse Podere Pienza is located in the middle of a nature reserve, where there are pheasants, deer, hares, owls and other wildlife. At 20km there is the town of Mount Amiata. The area is a gastronomic heaven producing cheeses (famous pecorino cheeses of Pienza). You can get fresh handmade pasta, some of the best and most noted wines of Italy, truffles, the famous Porcini mushrooms, wild boar and the Chianina meat.



Driving through this area is a treat in itself, with Cyprus lined rolling hills spotted with medieval villages and towers. You can also see large country homes and a constant changing landscape depending on the crops of the season. The locals are very proud of their land and are very hospitable, friendly and relaxed. The villages are charming, characteristic and full of history and culture. Small shops with local produce and artifacts line the shaded stone lined streets. The villages grasp onto the history of the region with honor, celebrating all the medieval and local festivals as they have done for centuries.



For the wine lovers one can sit outside and taste the famous wines of the region at many of the enoteca s and bars. The enoteca also serves meals, platters of cheeses and cold cuts (prosciutto, salame etc.). From here one can easily make day trips to Florence, Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino and venture over the hill to discover the magnificent coastline of Marremma only 40mins drive. Perugia, Cortona and Arezzo are all within easy reach from Podere Pienza. Rome is one and a half hour's drive.
