Podere Pietreta is an original Tuscan country house from ‘700, surrounded by beautiful countryside and olive trees. The property was recently renovated dividing the house into apartments and rooms, carefully maintaining all the characteristics of the original Tuscan style and elegantly adding all modern comforts. The big panoramic swimming pool by the house guarantees additional relax and amusement after a good sightseeing day or in hot days.
The atmosphere of the property and the local people working there contribute to the typical, unique experience.
The country house is positioned on a hill with an incredible view of the Tuscany countryside. Radicofani, a mediaeval village famous for its grey-stone houses and the ‘Ghino di Tacco’ fortress overlooking it, is just 2km away. In the area, the famous wines, the different cheeses and hams, the typical restaurants with their traditional recipes contribute to an unforgettable vacation also from a culinary standpoint.
For us, the best comment from our guests is: “We really feel at home here”!
