THE PODERE – HOUSE RENTAL

Among rolling Tuscan hills of vineyards

and olive groves…

Podere Sant’Alberto overlooks the valley of the river Elsa towards San Gimignano. Located about ten minutes from Monteriggioni in the direction of Castellina in Chianti, this is a farming area with a long history tracing its roots to pre-fourteenth century.

THE HOUSE

The main house is an elegant yet simple Casa Padronale farmhouse, sitting in a raised position overlooking the valley and surrounded by a magnificent curved retaining wall like part of a fortress.

 

From this level, and from inside the house, there is a clear view of the renowned San Gimignano towers.

GROUND FLOOR

The ground floor consists of a hall, living room, dining room, kitchen and pantry. The living room and hall have impressive arches and fireplaces.

 

The ground floor rooms have sail-vaulted terracotta ceilings and the large dining room seats 12.

FIRST FLOOR

The first floor has three double bedrooms, one twin and three recently upgraded, luxury bathrooms (all with showers and one with the greatest bath in the world!). The rooms on the first floor have exposed beams. There is an additional bedroom with en-suite in a separate annexe next to the barn.

OUTSIDE

There a beautiful formal garden at the back of the house, which overlooks a large swimming pool surrounded by comfortable seating areas enjoying stunning views. 

 

There are a number of options for outdoor dining which enjoy natural shade and a brick pizza oven and BBQ for al fresco cooking. 

Stay at Podere Sant’Alberto

The house and the property around it are so beautiful and welcoming. The photos and description you see in the listing do not do it justice. From the moment we arrived we started thinking when we will be coming back… It’s isolated on its own estate so you have complete privacy and serenity.
