Podere Monti - Profile


   Tuscany b&b in farmhouse with swimming pool near Montepulciano

Podere Monti is a 16th century farmhouse nestled between woods and olive groves. It has been turned into a residence of informal but refined charm that offers guests a high quality Bed & Breakfast service in the spirit and atmosphere of a private home. The farmhouse has been beautifully restored and furnished with every possible comfort. There are two floors of

living quarters and plenty of space both inside and out. At Podere Monti, every room is a story. The furnishings and decorations have been carefully chosed to give each room its own, unique character. The rooms are named for different artists who contributed to the rich cultural heritage of Montepulciano. Their works can be seen in the pictures hung on the walls of the room bearing their name. All the beds are superior king-size, with bedsteads of handcrafted metal. The traditional ceilings of brick and wood beams have been preserved and the floors are of wood planks. Antique sofas are covered in rich, luminous fabrics, and natural linens create a wonderful play of light with the warm Tuscan sun. Each room has its own bathroom and these are an intriguing blend of the old and the new; modern washbasins rest on 19th century mangers and liberty-style lamps illuminate the floors of Etruscan clay tile. “Of all wines, Montepulciano is King,” wrote Francesco Redi. Guests have the opportunity to confirm the truth of this as each room is paired with a different winery and they can sample the renowned wines of the region from their own wine cellar. Breakfast is served in the bright and attractive dining room with its original Roman stone floor, discovered during the restoration of the farmhouse. The owner serves breakfast personally, introducing you to the flavours of the region with homemade tarts, bread and preserves that are of the finest organic ingredients, some of them produced on the estate itself. At Podere Monti only breakfast is served unless special requests are made in advance for other meals. However, there are many good pubs and fine restaurants in the area and we would be delighted to advise you in your choice. Should you wish to have other meals prepared for you, our Italian-French chef, Maurizio, offers you a range of dishes from traditional Tuscan cuisine to new and innovative approaches to gastronomic interpretation. The delightful pool with hydromassage jets is surrounded by flowers and olive trees and is the ideal spot for those who wish to relax in an intimate atmosphere that is typically tuscan. The beauty of the farmhouse, the quality of the furnishings, the warmth and hospitality of the owners and the tranquillity of the surroundings combine to make Podere Monti an exceptional “agriturismo” where guests can savour the art of living well naturally.
