2 Full baths, 1 Half bath
Nice villa and outbuilding dating back to 17th century which have been tastefully restored preserving the ancient charm, beauty and the original architectural features like the beamed ceilings and the terracotta-tiled floors.
Located between the Val d'Orcia and the hills of the Sienese Chianti, the farmhouse is on two floors: the first floor is accessed by an ancient stone staircase and a small open gallery that lets into a spacious dining room with a Tuscan fireplace, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the ground floor there is a living room with stone flooring, a complete bathroom, laundry, a fully equipped professional kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, 6 fire burns and brick barbecue. On request possibility of cooking courses, wine tastings of the best Sienese wines and typical Tuscan dinners. The villa, furnished with style and elegance, preserves the ancient terracotta flooring and wooden beamed ceilings and is part of a seven hectare estate composed of land and forest, surrounded by a large private garden with private swimming pool, sun deck with river sand, and a small pond.
Thanks to its superb location the villa is the ideal starting point to visit the Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia with its wonderful medieval towns such as Cortona, Montepulciano, San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza, as well as Montalcino and San Gimignano and the beautiful art towns of Siena, Florence and Arezzo.
An ideal place for a relaxing holiday, taking long walks in the woods or visiting the most beautiful and striking sites of Tuscany.
Podere Pievina is an off-grid accommodation:
the farmhouse is almost entirely self-sufficient for its own needs and those of its guests thanks to the installation of a photovoltaic and solar thermal system, as well as rainwater harvesting, which helps to offer guests a relaxing and totally eco-friendly vacation.

“Great hosts and a spacious, comfortable villa”
Our villa hosts could not have been more friendly and accommodating during our one-week stay. We enjoyed learning from them about the Tuscan lifestyle and appreciated their help and advice on local train service, nearby restaurants, etc. We especially enjoyed our cooking lesson and dinner with our hosts where we were able to make pici, a Tuscan-style hand-rolled pasta. Our group of five adults was very comfortable in the villa, and the location worked out well as a home base to visit several Tuscan hill towns, La Foce Garden, Florence and Siena.
Response from the owner Dear Mary, we want to thank you for the beautiful words that you wanted to dedicate .. for us it was really nice to have you as guests, we appreciate your interest in Tuscany and its traditions. Was an unforgettable week, we keep you in our hearts. A warm hug and thanks to all of you. Grazia and Oscar.
