The Olivo cottage was actually one of the two barns on the farm dedicated to the conservation of hay and other agricultural products . The barns are a great value element in Tuscany and determine the distinctive features of the rural landscape. Rural construction, far from being 'simple', has developed very particular elements such as pigeon house, porches, portals and semi-transparent closures, essential for managing hay and wheat. Wrongly, for a long time rural architecture has been kept of little importance while now it becomes a symbol of the Tuscan landscape, elevating it to a common heritage and cultural asset to be protected. For this reason, any type of restructuring must respect the ancient rural characteristics, without changing the external features in any way.

Guests comments about Olivo Cottage
We stayed in cottage Olivio for two weeks in June/ July. Everything was perfect, the cottage was immaculately presented, spotlessly clean and close enough to walk into the town to try the really good restaurants.
Federica and her parents are so friendly and welcoming and obviously work very hard to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. This cottage is particularly good as it has its own enclosed garden and bbq. We will definitely be returning.

Located in Chianti country, Podere Monti was a perfect place to stay for a week in Tuscany. It is located just outside Casole d'Elsa, a lovely hilltop medieval village, with good restaurants, post office, banks, and grocery. You can make this location as relaxing or active touring as you choose. It is surrounded by the sightseeing villages/cities of Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Monteriggioni, etc. At Podere Monti, we were made to feel at home by hostess Federica, who made it easy to book, check-in and check-out. Cottage Olivo had two separate suite areas with a central living space and kitchecn, and two outdoor patio areas. This cottage is also tucked to the back edge of the property, so feels very private. We didn't use the pool area, but it looked very inviting had the weather been warmer with views across the valley. Highly recommend this rental.
