Description

Podere di Maggio is a organic farm that produces a very fine and flavorous olive oil and chestnuts.

On a property of 30 ha. we rent out 3 independent old houses in stone and 2 apartments, all in the middle of a wonderful landscape of olive yards, old chestnut trees, clean streams between rolling hills in the beautiful uncontaminated valley of the river Fiora. This is a place where the only sounds to be heard are made by the water in the small streams, the wind in the trees and the wild animals such as deer, wild boar and singing birds.

The houses that give place to 2 - 6 persons, all have a spacious kitchen, equipped with everything you need.

Every house and apartment have lots of privacy, a shaded terrace and unlimited space around.

The old thick stone walls make sure that the houses remain wonderfully cool in summer.

The area is great for taking a bath in the river, or enjoying long walks in the surrounding natural parks, visiting Etruscan sites and

The beautiful beaches of the Tyrenian sea are just one hour from here.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Podere di Maggio is situated in the south-eastern part of Tuscany, the still undiscovered and most "original" part of the region, on the slopes of mount Amiata. Only an hour from the beautyfull tyrenan coast and the lake of Bolsena, though the river and waterfall nearby offer a lovely place to bathe and relax. The area boasts some fantastic cuisine and wine, beautiful countryside, and plenty of cultural sites to keep you busy.The climate in this region is very pleasant; in spring the temperature is around some 22 degrees and everything is blooming. In summer it never becomes too hot, due to the fact that Podere di Maggio finds itself on an altitude of 500 meters above sea level.In fall the weather stays mostly very pleasant until the second half of November. Nature's colours are astonishing at the end of October.

Selva di Santa Fiora

From here you can visit the beautiful nature parks in the surrounding area, or make excursions to Mount Amiata, an ancient vulcano that enriches the entire zone with sources of warm thermal water (Saturnia, Petriolo, Bagno Vignoni, etc.). The area also offers the possibility of skiing in winter. You can visit the medieval villages nearby (Arcidosso, Castel del Piano, Monte Giovi, Moltalcino, famous for the wine), places of spiritual worship (Monte Labro, the Tibetan monastery Merigar and the old convents nearby); Etruscan sites and beautiful villages build in tufo (Pitigliano, Sorano, etc.)Siena, Firenze, Orvieto, Perugia and Assisi are easy to visit in one day from Podere di Maggio.
