From the owner

All stays will be managed in compliance with the current legal and sanitary provisions on Covid-19.

The "Olivo" apartment (sleeps 5+2, 86 sqm) is composed of a living room with fireplace and a comfortable sofa-bed, a fully equipped kitchenette, a double bedroom, a triple bedroom (one double bed and one single bed), two bathrooms with shower and hairdryer.

It is part of Podere Pietreta which is a large, old house from the 1700's, entirely in stone, that was carefully and passionately restorated, maintaining the particular architectural qualities of the structure and using only original materials.

The estate is positioned on a hill, in a position of exceptional beauty within the natural and artistic park of Val d'Orcia, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

The farmhouse, 500m above sea level, dominates the hills that slope towards the valley: from here you can admire a vast natural setting, from Monte Cetona to the cliffs of San Casciano, from the rock of Celle sul Rigo to the slopes of Monte Amiata.

In addition to one of the most fascinating views in Tuscany, you can enjoy a mild and pleasant climate, which benefits from its sheltered position and the ancient oak trees that surround the estate of Podere Pietreta.

This apartment is on the ground level and has a private entrance; in front of it there is a private garden with a gazebo, table, chairs and barbecue. The apartment is located on one of the sides of the farmhouse, ensuring that guests have complete privacy.

Further details

Breakfast includes home-made sweets, honey and marmalade, served directly in the apartment at the requested time: cost is 6 euro per person.

Further details indoors

The apartment is characterised by good taste and warmth, equipped with a fireplace and elegantly furnished with furniture from the era.

The kitchen is in hand-worked stone, the bedroom embellished by many small pictures, produced by old lace and the embroidering that belonged to the grandmother of the owners. The apartment has been furnished in such a way as to preserve the rustic atmosphere of the old farmhouse.

All comforts have been thought of: satellite television, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave oven, automatic heating. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a shower.

For the exclusive use of the guests of Pietreta, there is a swimming pool and a laundry room with all equipment (washing machine, dryer, clothes horse, ironing board, iron etc).

There is also free wireless Internet connection.

Upon request, it is possible to have in your apartment - at a time you request - a home-made breakfast, including sweets, honey and marmalade, all home-made by Christine. Not to be missed, amongst other things, is the grandmother's cake, the yoghurt and berry marmalade cake, prepared with berries that grow abundantly in the Pietreta park.

To ensure peace and quiet of its guests, Pietreta does not have a restaurant within the complex, but some of the best traditional restaurants in the area (just 2km away) offers guests of Podere Pietreta a complete meal a la carte, at a fixed discounted price.

Further details outdoors

In front of the entrance of the apartment, there is an exclusive area with a table, seats, gazebo and private barbecue, where guests can eat their meals, whilst taking in the lovely view.

A park of three hectares surrounds Podere Pietreta. Under the shade of large oaks, there is a panoramic swimming pool with a Roman staircase (6x12m); from the well-placed benches in the large garden, you can admire the magnificent panorama that characterises Podere Pietreta. The ample parking is located in a position that does not disturb the view.

The park also includes an olive grove of more than 100 olive trees, an orchard and a rose garden; there are no enclosures, but wide spaces and natural terraces, surrounded by lavender, rosemary and flowering plants.

The panoramic swimming pool is surrounded by a vast English garden and is elegantly equipped with a pergola of cast iron, sun beds and deckchairs; a characteristic shower is built into the stone.

Owner's reply:
Merci beaucoup pour vos mots et merci d'avoir signalé le problème que vous avez rencontré. Cependant, nous devons clarifier que Podere Pietreta est à seulement 2 km du village de Radicofani; il y a des panneaux de Podere Petreta sur la route nationale, dans deux directions, indiquant "prendre la route blanche à 300 mètres ....". Nous vous rappelons que notre site décrit clairement les indications d'arrivée en 5 langues, sur Google Maps nous sommes clairement identifiés -   il suffit d'entrer la destination Podere Pietreta - enfin, nous avons envoyé un e-mail avec le numéro de téléphone de notre concierge pour tout problème. Nous sommes désolés que vous ayez rencontré ces difficultés et nous avons déjà demandé à la municipalité d'avoir d'autres panneaux plus près de la fourche. Je vous informe que l'installation des cartels est gérée par la Commune et non par les structures. Avec les salutations les plus cordiales Podere Pietreta
