Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Podere Lacostia is a very attractive villa with private pool set in rolling Tuscan countryside near Florence with a 360 degree spectacular view of a magic countryside.
The property has been recently meticulously restored, using only traditional materials, from what was formerly a typical Tuscan farmhouse and transformed into an impressive stone-built, luxury holiday villa with private pool.
The interiors have been tastefully furnished with great care in a country yet elegant style.
The villa has also been equipped with all modern facilities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet connection, dishwasher & washing machine and all bedrooms with own bathroom and TV set. The house is provided with mosquitonet.
The outdoor areas that surround the house consist in a large, covered and furnished terrace with a barbecue, where guests can enjoy pleasant outdoor dinners, the infinity edge swimming pool area that is furnished to perfection with sun beds and gazebo for relaxing while admiring the splendid panorama and a well groomed garden.
The villa is located in the heart of Tuscany making it the ideal place for people seeking a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the usual city life whilst at the same time still being close to all the main art centers and amenities in the region.
A small supermarket and a bar/restaurant can be found in the small village of Iano (1250 meters) also reachable on foot, whilst in the small town of Montaione (7 km) guests can find all essential services.
Sporting activities are available in the close village of Castelfalfi (6 km) with the 18-hole international Golf Course Castelfalfi, as well as horseback riding and a tennis club.
Some distances: San Gimignano 19 km, Volterra 20 km, Pisa 55, Siena 59 km, Florence 60 km.
In a small wine cellar situated outside the villa, underneath the pool area, is available a good selection of most renowned Tuscan wines purchasable by the guests.

The Tuscany region
The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the north west and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West. From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.
Montaione lies on the top of a hill in the heart of the Tuscany countryside, at 373 mt on the sea level, surrounded by the typical landscape of Elsa Valley, characterised by Chianti vineyards, olive trees, rows of cypresses and extended woods. Thanks to the strategic and geographic position in the heart of Tuscany, Montaione is in an average of only 50 Km far from the most important and famous cities of art like Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca, without consider that to get San Gimignano and Volterra by car are sufficient only 30 minutes of driving. The surrounding countryside is rich in chianti vineyards that thanks to the right climate produce an excellent wine and also olive groves to produce an Extra Vergine Oil of Olive kept as garden by punctilious farmers.

We were pleasantly surprised with house and the location. It was a little difficult to find and I would have to blame my inability to navigate and read map. The road to the house is unpaved, narrow… More
