Podere Incrociati rises in the heart of Montagnola Senese, just 15 km/9 miles far from Siena and 75 km/47,5 miles far from Florence, among the greenery of age-old oaks, holm-oaks and chestnut-trees.

Thanks to its high position (500 mt./1640 ft. above sea level) you will enjoy a well-aired summer suitable for walks in the nearby woods, crossed by several paths, catching sight of charming landscapes, lots of medieval villages and Romanesque parish churches.

There are thousands of paths through Montagnola Senese, which is a hillock in the heart of the Sienese area. During the Middle Ages, these paths were connected to the ancient "Via Francigena", the important road link between Rome and the rest of Europe, and this is the reason why in this area there are so many old villages and churches.Podere Incrociati is surrounded by a natural environment, with tracks that go through the woods and that are ideal for mountain-bike, horse-back riding and trekking excursions, during which, with a little stroke of luck, it is possible to meet fallow-deer, badgers, foxes, porcupines, hedgehoges, dormice.

The building is composed of a mansion built in 1840 during the Gran Duke Leopoldo II of Tuscany's reign, that has been recently restored, without altering its original characteristics.

The outside fronts have maintained their originality, while inside the building, most part of the ancient hand-crafted brick floors has been restored, as well as the ceilings with their old wooden beams that had been blackened by the smoke of the mantelpieces, which were once the only source of heating; the old irregular walls and the arched ceilings have been preserved, too.

The old forniture makes the place comfortable and charming, respecting the ancient rural Sienese traditions.

The place is particularly sunny thanks to a wide natural meadow that lays south of the building, alternating with the woods, and that is at the guests' disposal.

Tuscany is also famous for its spa tourism and Spa, who has never heard of Montecatini or Terme di Saturnia or Terme di Rapolano.

Siena

Siena is one of the best preserved historical cities of Tuscany. Ancient medieval town built on three hills, is still surrounded by walls. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was conceived as a work of art that blends into the landscape of the Crete Senesi.

The historic center of Siena has been inserted since 1995 between the World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

UNESCO has included Siena in the list of world heritage sites with the following words: Siena is the embodiment of a medieval town. Its inhabitants pursued their rivalry with Florence, also in the area of urban planning. Through the centuries they preserved their city's Gothic appearance, acquired over the centuries XII-XV. During this period the work of Duccio, the Lorenzetti brothers and Simone Martini influenced the course of Italian and European art. The entire city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo was invented as a work of art that integrates with the surrounding landscape.

"Maravillosa casa"

Podere Incrociati tiene todo lo necesario para unas estupendas vacaciones en la Toscana. La casa y toda la propiedad es fantástica y esta acondicionada pensando en todas las necesidades de los clientes alojados. Su localización en medio de una zona de bosque proxima a Siena permite cualquier desplazamiento por la zona. Franco y Antonio han estado pendientes en todo momento de nuestras necesidades y nos obsequiaron con una magnifica cena. Muchísimas gracias por hacer que disfrutáramos de unas vacaciones tan maravillosas.
