A few meters from the path to the local village , 1 km - 10 min by walking.
The Mandorlo apartment is located on the ground floor and occupies a good part of the central building. This part of the farm housed cellars and the ancient oven. Due to its structure, the part destined for the cellar enjoys a privileged position to keep the temperatures in summer and winter constant. The ovens of the past were external and were very large as they were powered by wood and because they had to produce large quantities of bread for the whole family. Usually bread was prepared 2 times a month with adequate techniques to impart a certain degree of humidity and keep it very long. This part of the apartment corresponds to the main bedroom with an outdoor patio. This accommodation also turns out to be particularly bright with windows on both sides of the building and enjoying two large glass French doors.
It is made up of two double bedrooms + 2 single beds and a bedroom with twin beds, large living room with sofas, fully-equipped kitchen and two bathrooms with shower. It also has a large terrace with a pergola to enjoy the open air overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Is one of our holiday apartments in Tuscany with shared pool.

Guests comments about Mandorlo Apartment :
A welcoming hostess provides lots of helpful information about the locality. The accommodation itself is very clean and was great for our party of six. The pool was particularly welcome in the summer heat (we stayed in early July) and has fine views across the countryside. The local town of Casole d’Elsa has a number of good restaurants and is a 20 - 30 minute walk away, some of the walk being uphill. There is a good selection of shops (e.g. butcher, grocer etc.) and a supermarket for your food and provisions.There are lots of other towns and villages to explore comfortably within an hour’s drive, plus of course Siena itself which is just over an hour away.

The house is devided in several apartments. Clean, nice, stylish and this all in combination with a great view and a a friendly hosting family.The local is central, so all main spots in Tuscany are nearby.For sure we will come back.

Federica and her family were great hosts, full of information about the local area. We stayed in a three bed apartment part of the main building. The facilities were exactly as described and to a high standard. It's central for visiting Siena, Florence, Volterra and other Tuscan highlights. If you want to chill there's a pool with a great view. Communication with Federica was very reliable. Strongly recommended, we'll be back.

My family (2 adults and 2 kids, 12 & 7) have just returned from Casa Podere Monti following a great week's holiday here.
The accommodation was spotless and spacious and the communal areas (including gardens and swimming pool) were just perfect. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms.
We normally stay in similar properties in France but this one had it all; including a great location within safe walking distance of the small town of Casole d'Elsa which has several good restaurants, etc. For us this was a massive plus as you usually have to drive everywhere on holidays like this. The property is also a short drive away from Siena, Monteriggioni, etc. and 2 hours from Pisa. We didn't go to Florence on tis visit but it would take about 90 mins to get there.

We stayed the first week of March . The place is clean and you have everything you need for cooking. It was so peaceful and quiet, we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommended for everyone who wants to chill out. The owners are very kind and so welcoming. If I return to Tuscany I will stay there again!

Onze woning bestond eigenlijk uit een 4 persoons en een 2 persoons huis. Daardoor hadden we ook 2 badkamers en 2 keukens. Een mooi echt Italiaans huis. Keuken goed uitgerust, incl vaatwasser. Leuk eigen terras met tuintafel en 6 stoelen. Zwembad op het park is heerlijk. De eigenaren zijn hele aardige mensen, je hebt vooral met Federica te maken en zij spreekt perfect Engels. Je kunt haar op ieder tijdstip van de dag benaderen. Er is een wasmachine voor algemeen gebruik, tegen kosten, maar heel handig. De omgeving is prachtig en rustig. Ons huisje had geen airco, wel stonden er 3 blowers die we op volle toeren hebben laten werken vanwege de hoge temperaturen. Wij vinden het park meer geschikt voor volwassenen dan voor (kleine) kinderen. Er is voor hen niets te doen, behalve het zwembad. Al met al: een mooi en verzorgde locatie in prachtig Toscane!!
