Description from manager

Podere Monti is a 16th century farmhouse built on Roman foundations, nestled between woods and olive groves. It has been turned into a residence of refined charm that retains an atmosphere of informal welcome. The landscape and environment of Montepulciano are among the greenest you can imagine serene, relaxing and completely liberating. Nature in its pure abundance dominates every aspect of life here.

Soft, rolling hills delight the eyes, beckoning visitors to wander, on foot, by bicycle or on horseback, immersing them selves completely in this ancient landscape.

The hills and valleys are dominated by olive groves and vineyards. Cultivation is still done using traditional time honored methods that results in produce bursting with flavour and goodness, straight from the earth to the table.

Accommodation: At Podere Monti every room is a story. The furnishings and decoration have been carefully chosen to give each one its own unique character. The bedrooms are named for different artists who contributed to the rich cultural heritage of Montepulciano. Their works can be seen in the pictures hung on the walls of the room bearing their name.

All the beds are superior king-size, with bedsteads of handcrafted metal. The traditional ceilings of brick and wood beams have been preserved and the floors are of wood planks. Antique sofas are covered in rich, luminous fabrics, and natural linens create a wonderful play of light with the warm Tuscan sun.

Each room has its own bathroom and these are an intriguing blend of the old and the new; modern washbasins rest on 19th century stands and liberty-style lamps illuminate the floors of Etruscan clay tile.

The ancient structure is arranged over two floors. The upper floor is reached by an internal staircase that leads to the traditional arched loggia. Here you will find a sprawling living room with an enormous fireplace that was once the kitchen and heart of the original building. on this level are also two junior suites and two double bedrooms each with en suite bathroom.

Down stairs are two further suites, a communal laundry and another double bedroom and bathroom that have been reclaimed from the old stables and cantinas. The old barn has been converted into a large living room furnished with modern sofas and lit by large windows with views of the lawns and gardens. There is also a light and sunny modern kitchen and dining room with an original Roman floor that was discovered during the renovations.

“Of all wines, Montepulciano is King,” wrote Francesco Redi. Guests have the opportunity to confirm the truth of this as each room is paired with a different winery and they can sample the renowned wines of the region from their own wine cellar.

Air conditioning available (for the 2017 season) only in 4 bedrooms. Wi-Fi internet connection available.

Garden and Swimming pool: The large garden at Podere Monti is nestled in the woods and olive groves of the farm and in perfect harmony with its surroundings.

There are flowering shrubs throughout the season, the green is studded with cypress, broom, rose and lilac, and aromatic herbs perfume the air. Guests can enjoy this wonderful garden from the shade of an oak or elm tree, while stretched out on the grass, or comfortably seated under the cool wisteria arbour.

Podere Monti's splendid pool (8 x 14 meters, 1.4 meters deep) is placed in the sunniest, most open spot on the property. It is equipped with a relaxing and pampering hydro massage function. While relaxing in the solarium, guests can admire the panoramic views of the valley below and catch glimpses of Montepulciano nearby.
