Podere Tosco G apartment is part of a typical farmhouse on a wine producing estate in the countryside. The apartment opens onto its own terrace perfect for dining al fresco and there is plenty more space for relaxing around the swimming pool situated in a sunny position in the grounds.
The farmhouse is divided into just five apartments simply furnished in Tuscan style with beamed ceilings and other original features retained. Podere Tosco G is situated on the first floor reached by an external staircase leading to the terrace which opens directly into the apartments living room. The living room has a kitchen corner, dining table and chairs, settee (which can convert to a double bed on request to accommodate up to two extra persons) and satellite television. There is a double bedroom (an extra single bed can be added here on request) and a shower room. The apartments terrace is furnished with table, chairs and sun umbrella creating a lovely spot for al fresco meals whilst enjoying the view over the grounds. Air conditioning has been added to the apartments (payable locally) and Wi Fi internet connection is also available.
In the grounds below the farmhouse is a pretty swimming pool (9m x 6m) framed by olive trees with verdant countryside beyond. Also in the grounds, is a little play area with swings for the little ones, a built in barbeque, and there is a communal washing machine for guests use.
The friendly owners live in another farmhouse close by and ensure a true Tuscan family atmosphere. They are proud of their farm which produces wine and olive oil both available on site for tasting and purchase. On the ground floor of the farmhouse is a little dining room with pretty outside terrace shaded by a pergola where breakfast is served on request and dinners featuring home cooking using the farms own produce can also be arranged.
Podere Tosco is immersed in the countryside yet many of Tuscany's wonderful sights are within easy driving distance. Pisa with its leaning tower, Volterra, an ancient and interesting town boasting an Etruscan museum, Roman amphitheatre, and many craft shops with local alabaster products, and San Gimignano the 'city of towers' are all within an hours' drive. Only a little further afield Florence and Siena are lovely days out, and even the Tuscan coast is only about 45 minutes drive away if a day by the sea entices you.
