Description

The IRIS apartment is on the ground floor of a characteristic barn on the farm estate of Podere Albereto, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside on the rolling hills above Florence, overlooking the San Polo in Chianti valley. The estate of 10 hectares of fields, olive groves and woodland is only 13 km from Florence and 2 km from San Polo in Chianti. At 350 metres above sea-level there is a gentle breeze in the evening so air-conditioning isn't necessary even in the height of summer.

At Podere Albereto you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, admire the breathtaking view of the Chianti landscape under the shade of a pergola, swim in the pool, sunbathe on the terrace, enjoy a home-cooked barbeque accompanied by a Chianti wine or alternatively visit all the cultural and artistic treasures that Tuscany has to offer.
The owners of the property, Fabio and Trinidad, live in the main farm building and are always happy to provide information and assistance about things to do and see

The owners of the property, Fabio and Trinidad, live in the main farm building and are always happy to provide information and assistance about things to do and see in the area and further afield. There are 1000 olive trees on the property and an excellent extra-virgin olive oil is produced and sold on the farm. You may also want to take a look at the beautifully hand-crafted vases, pottery and paintings created by Trinidad in her art workshop at Podere Albereto.

Further details indoors

IRIS is a lovely apartment, ideal for a family of 4 or 5 or two couples.It is located on the ground floor of a characteristic and recently refurbished barn.

IRIS is 60 sqm and has a fitted kitchen, dining and living area which accommodates five people. The bright and airy master bedroom has a king-size bed and, if required, there is enough space for an extra single bed and cot. There is also a wash basin with hot and cold running water in this room. French doors open onto the main courtyard and car park of the property. The second bedroom is also very spacious with double bed which can be separated into twin beds. The bathroom has a shower, wash basin, w.c. and bidet. The private garden is perfect for outdoor dining or relaxation (table, chairs, sun beds and deck chairs provided) where you can admire the spectacular views, sipping a glass of wine; guests are given a bottle of Chianti red on arrival, courtesy of the owners. This accommodation is quiet and peaceful yet just a stone's throw from all the attractions of Florence. It is also a safe environment for children in a stimulating country setting.

Further details outdoors

The spacious communal areas on the property include: a swimming pool (9m long x 4.5 m wide x 1.35 m deep), a large sun terrace with sun beds, deck chairs and sun umbrellas, a BBQ with tables for outdoor dining under the shade of pergolas and gazebos and a shaded car park. The whole property is fenced and has a 300 m private road leading to the entrance gate.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany offers an infinite number of historic and cultural attractions. Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance must be visited for its monuments, cathedral, world famous museums and the Uffizi Gallery. You can get to Florence in under 30 minutes by car from Podere Albereto. Siena, home to the Palio horse race, is only 30 km away and the local Chianti area abounds with magnificent churches, turreted castles, ancient hamlets and gentlle hills adorned with vineyards and olive groves. It goes without saying that this area is also world famous for its great food and wine: Gallo Nero Chianti Classico red wine, the best "Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine t-bone steak) is served in a little restaurant down the road in Panzano, pappa al pomodoro, ribollita. We can recommend some excellent restaurants in the vicinity where you can try the local delicacies and if you like fruit and vegetables you are welcome to try our home-grown produce on the farm.
The property is an excellent starting point for day trips to San Giminiano, Arezzo, Lucca and Pisa. In summer, why not spend a day on the Tyrrhenian coast with its beautiful unspoilt beaches and in the other seasons you can spend a relaxing day in one of the numerous spas, thermal baths and hot springs scattered around the region.

San Polo in Chianti

The little town San Polo in Chianti is situated in north- west Chianti, surrounded by hills of about 700 metres. It is an area known for the cultivation of Giaggiolo (sword lily - a plant used in cosmetics) , the Gallo Nero Chianti wine, and extra vergin olive oil.

The village of San Polo is 2 km away. Here you can find a restaurant, a bar, two small supermarkets, a post office, and a bank. The valley overlooking San Polo has a wonderful landscape of undulating hills leading to the river Arno and historical monuments such as the old church of Rubbiana (13th century). It is ideal for country walks - from the fields surrounding the property you can access walking paths of one, two, or six hours, with panoramic views of Chianti and of Florence.

There is a bus stop 1 km away from the house. The bus has connections with the Florence city bus line (ATAF, Number 49) and the coach service (SITA) to Florence and Greve. In about an hour you can reach Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo or San Gimignano by car. The small centres of Greve, Castellina in Chianti, Gaiole can all be reached by car in less than half an hour.

“Lovely apartment with stunning views and within easy reach of Florence”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

We had a great week staying at the Iris. The apartment is in a stunning location yet within easy reach of Florence. It was very clean and tidy. The bedrooms are large, although the lounge/dining area is slightly small for five people. However, this was not a problem for us as we ate al fresco. Fabio, the owner was extremely helpful, giving us lots of local tips and information, making our visits to Florence and the surrounding area (with three teenagers) stress free and very enjoyable. The swimming pool has fabulous views and was a welcome respite from the midday sun! All in all we had a fabulous week exploring the sights of Tuscany and would definitely recommend the apartment to others.
