"PODERE INCROCIATI" rises in the heart of Montagnola Senese, at only 15 km/9 miles from Siena and 75 km/47,5 miles from Florence, among the greenery of oaks and chestnut-trees.
It is an ideal place to take a relaxing holiday far away from the city noises, among the peace of the country, in contact with an endless cultural heritage within a stone's throw from the sea and the most important Tuscan cities.
Thanks to its high position (500 mt./1640 ft. above sea level) you will enjoy a well-aired summer suitable for walks in the nearby woods, crossed by several paths, catching sight of charming landscapes, lots of medieval villages and Romanesque parish churches.
There are thousands of paths through the Montagnola Senese. During the Middle Ages, these paths were connected to the ancient "Via Francigena", the important road between Rome and the rest of Europe, and this is the reason why in this area there are so many old villages and churches.
Podere Incrociati is surrounded by a natural environment, with tracks that go through the woods and that are ideal for mountain-bike, horse-back riding and trekking excursions, during which, sometimes it is possible to meet fallow-deer, badgers, foxes, porcupines, hedgehoges, dormice.
The building is composed of a mansion built in 1840 during the Gran Duke Leopoldo II of Tuscany's reign, that has been recently restored, without altering its original characteristics.
The outside fronts have maintained their originality, while inside the building, most part of the ancient hand-crafted brick floors has been restored, as well as the ceilings with their old wooden beams, the old irregular walls and the arched ceilings have been preserved, too.
The old forniture makes the place comfortable and charming, respecting the ancient rural Sienese traditions. The place is particularly sunny thanks to a wide natural meadow that is at the guests' disposal.
