Overview

The owners of Podere Chiara have been our friends for many years now and their delightful farmhouse 'Casa Patrizia' is one of our most popular holiday properties. We were delighted therefore when they decided to refurbish another large Tuscan farmhouse on their estate which has now become a firm favourite with our clients.

The area around Montespertoli is so picturesque - vineyard covered hillsides, olive groves in profusion, cypress trees and sunflowers mingling together in a riot of colour.

Montespertoli itself is a charming market town - 'The City of Wine' - where you can really enjoy the Italian way of life and from where you can travel easily to Florence, Siena and throughout the Chianti hills. There are ample places to eat out and fresh produce to tempt you when you fancy an evening barbecue with a glass or two of the owners' delicious wine.

The farmhouse stands on the edge of a small cluster of buildings adjoining the owners' vineyard and has been carefully divided into three separate dwellings all with terracotta floors and beamed or vaulted ceilings. The kitchens and bathrooms are all of good quality and there is a useful shared laundry area. Opposite the farmhouse there is also a lovely, detached cottage. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in each property.

The garden with swimming pool (14m x 7m) has good views to the hills and is a nice spot to return to at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

We feel that this excellent location with its caring and attentive owners will be an ideal base for a Tuscan holiday.
