Cozy Farmhouse in a seventeenth century farmhouse located in the Chianti

Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend

Welcome a guest and take care of his needs while under the roof of Podere Casanova has become the life philoshophy of our small, family-run holiday apartments. We are a beautiful and large family composed of me (Lisa), my husband Tommaso, my parents Biagio and Maria, my two sisters Letizia and Lara and my marvelous nephew Lorenzo and niece Carlotta.

Podere Casanova

At PODERE CASANOVA everyone is part of the group, an indispensable part that makes “our house feel like yours”, a peaceful and tranquil setting where you can enjoy authentic moments of relaxation away from stress and worries of everyday life. Here, you'll always find friendly smiles and hospitality. We cannot wait to meet you! I hope that you, like many of our friends, return home taking in your heart the motto that distinguishes us: “At Podere Casanova, you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend!”.


The apartments are furnished with taste and simplicity

All of our apartments have their own private external space. The apartments located on the first floor have their terrace with sun umbrella, table and chairs and barbecue grill. Apartments on the ground floor have a large part of the garden, a large gazebo, table, chairs and barbecue grill as well.

The apartments are divided as follows:

Il Melograno

2+1 sleeps

Il Ciliegio

2+1 sleeps

Il Gelsomino

2+1 sleeps

Il Cipresso

4+2 sleeps

La Ginestra

2+2 sleeps

Our swimming pool

The pool is 12 x 8 meters and offers a splendid view over the valley. It can easily be reached from the apartments by following a stone walkway and stairs. The pool is protected by large hedge of aromatic plants while the view over the Tuscan countryside is open.

At every occasion, the pool offers guests the chance to relax whether it is for the day or after having visited the many sights and destinations in the area and across Tuscany.

Welcome Buffet

Let's start off well from the very beginning

One of the most beautiful things we look forward every year after working hard is our vacation time... you dream about it, you plan it well in advance and select what you want to do based upon your interests, your family's needs and expectations.

Often this also means long travel times, arriving at your destination pretty tired.

For precisely this reason, a few years ago we decided to start organizing every Saturday a free welcome buffet to greet our guests upon arrival to Podere Casanova that offers you a taste to Tuscan specialties prepared by me and my family.

It is our way to welcome you to Podere Casanova.

The buffet starts around 7pm between April and October for at least 3 families arriving on Saturday at Podere Casanova.

Pizza Party

Let's continue in style every Wednesday evening

One of the greatest moments many of our guests (who I like to call friends) remember fondly is our PIZZA PARTY night.

Every Wednesday between April and October when we have at least 3 families taking part, we organize a “Pizza Party”, an evening spent together to let you discover the many tastes pizza can take in Italy!

It is a fun evening for all involved but particularly for the children who end up dressing up as chefs and who love to prepare pizzas, with us by their side, and present them to everyone involved as soon as they are baked.

Common areas

Ideal for couple:

Podere Casanova offers both within the areas of each apartment and in the area in front of the pool spaces where you can relax and enjoy quiet moments for yourself and the people we love.

Ideal for families with children

There are lots of spaces for kids at Podere Casanova: a large playground area with swings, slide and other play constructions. In the outdoor area in front of the pool there is a large, well-maintained meadow that is private and the entire property is fenced in so you can rest assured they cannot wander off. For those that love animals, the farm has friendly goats that are always happy to be petted... especially if you offer dry bread pieces, they'll love eating them from your hand, a special and fun experience for your children.

The Tuscany region

Il Podere Casanova, è circondato da un panorama mozzafiato, sulle colline toscane, immerso tra oliveti, vigneti, boschi e cosa non meno importante, vicino alle più famose città d'arte della Toscana:

- Firenze 22 km

- San Gimignano 33 km

- Siena 73 km

- Pisa 65 km

- Volterra 78 km

- Lucca 94 km


Il Podere Casanova si trova a Montespertoli, piccola cittadina, famosa soprattutto per il suo ottimo vino e olio.

Montespertoli è una piccola cittadina contadina dove la terra e i suoi frutti ne fanno ancora da padrona, il vino e l'olio sono le principali fonti di lavoro e guadagno e sono l'orgoglio di quelle persone, che nella terra ci ha speso tanta fatica ma anche grande passione.

Nel mese di Settembre, oppure a fine Ottobre, troverete un paese in fermento, con grandi trattori pieni di uva in Settembre e Olive a fine Ottobre transitare su e giù per il paese, orgogliosi del loro raccolto e nei campi venderete ancora uomini e donne di tutte le età, lavorare la terra è un esperienza che vi consiglio di vivere.
