Welcome to Podere I Monti Farm Holiday
My name is Lucia and I’ve been running the holiday farmhouse in Tuscany “Podere I Monti” for 15 years now. Having a villa in Tuscany was one of my husband’s dream and soon after became mine as well.
The farmhouse “I Monti” had been abandoned for a long time and we decided to get engaged with the project of renovating it and now is one of the best villas in Tuscany countryside and holds our “agriturismo” and our brand new holiday apartments.
Even if we renovated and everything is brand new, we still wanted to maintain a classical design and preserve the old connection to nature, territory and Tuscany traditions. Our guests have the chance to experience a luxurious Italian villa with all the modern amenities but still smell and taste the characteristic Tuscany as true Tuscan people feel it.
We engage with our guests and involve them in our traditions and customs. We also like to show them the nearby unknown beauties such as Colline Metallifere, between Siena and the Tuscan Mediterranean Seaside.
This territory is mainly hilly, with a rich variety of mineral resources, hence the name, exploited since antiquity first by the Etruscan until the mid-19th century, during which quickly began running out.
Even though I’m not a professional cook, I included a restaurant in our farm house and I’m frequently approached by guests asking me for traditional recipes. I am always very happy when it happens and I’m always available to prepare a typical Tuscan dish for my guests.
My grandparents lived not far from the Podere I Monti farm house and I used to spend a lot of time with them learning about old traditions and I try to pass them on my guests if they wish.
I also live here at the agriturismo with my family and I will be very happy to welcome you!
See you at our villa in Tuscany!
