Past & Present
Holiday Home Casa Podere Monti in the heart of Tuscany traces its origins back to the 18th century when farmsall over the region were usually the property of noble, land-owning families.
For us it’s our grandparents’ inheritance; they loved the Tuscan Countryside intensely and decided to move here permanently in 1956. Podere Monti at that time sustained the family through the cultivation of cereals, the production of oil and wine and breeding. On the ground floor, the farm originally had the stables for animals such as cows and horses, storage rooms for agricultural tools and implements and the cellars. The family lived on the first floor of the building.
However, the desire to keep the Podere at the centre of the family’s life increased in spite of time. Therefore, in 1990 the refurbishing project took off starting from the stables and then moving on to the barns and another chamber for farming use.
A few steps away from the Podere, in an enchanting position and fully submerged in nature, is the lovely swimming pool from where to admire all the property with a unique view of the rolling Tuscan hills.
It has always been our dream to transform the farm into a grand holiday home. After some time and work, the dream has become reality and even now, after all these years, we still host guests coming from every part of the world, every time with the same passion.
We are proud and honoured to be able to share the beauty of this land and the fruit of our family’s work with you.
