Podere San Giuseppe is a splendid farm immersed in the charming Tuscan hills halfway between Siena and Florence. The property, built in the last century, has been recently restored with great care by the owners keeping the original architecture but at the same time by adding every modern convenience. The property consists of three buildings: the main house, the guesthouse and a dependance. All three buildings have the typical farmhouse aspect: stone buildings with tiled floors and wooden beam ceilings, set in a property of 2½ acres. The big oak tree next to the main house provides a large shaded area where guests can enjoy al fresco meals washed down with a good glass of Chianti or to simply relax and enjoy the panorama. Thanks to its strategic position, just a few kilometres from the main roads, Podere San Giuseppe is the ideal spot for spending a relaxing holiday without forgoing the chance to visit Florence, Siena, Monteriggioni, Volterra, San Gimignano and above all the famous Chianti area.
MAIN BUILDING: The main building is on three floors. The entrance is on the side facing the pool. On the ground floor there is a TV room, a fully equipped kitchen with large table, a room with wood oven, a delightful dining room, a bathroom suitable for the disabled, a sitting room with comfortable sofa's with fireplace and two bedrooms (with divisible bed) each with en - suite bathroom with shower. An internal stone staircase leads up from the reading room to the first floor; where there are three double bedrooms (with divisible bed) and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) each with en - suite bathroom with shower. On the second floor, the only room accessible to guests is the laundry room. DEPENDANCE: The guesthouse located just a few metres away has two double bedrooms (one has dividable bed), two bathrooms with shower and a dining room with fully equipped kitchen. In a recently restored dependance, there is a living room with fireplace. Also at guests disposal are two splendid wooden gazebo's where are placed the table tennis and the table football.
The farm is located in a 2½ acre park reached by a manually opening gate. The land consists of lawn and vegetation that delimits the boundaries naturally. Just in front of the French door of the kitchen is a big table for outdoor dining, shaded by a large oak. Close by the pool area is the playground area with goal door, volleyball and basketball.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
Open from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October, the pool is just a few metres from the main house (and is easily reachable through a paved walkway). Rectangular shaped and with Jacuzzi tub, it measures 6 x 12 m and is 1,50 m. deep. The pool area is equipped with sun beds, tables, chairs and gazebos.
