The construction rises on a hill, from here we can enjoy a splendid view on those nearby valleys. The house has been recently restaured and divided into 5 apartments and 5 rooms. Apartments and rooms look out on the garden, where we can admire different varieties of plants and flowers. On the surrounding space, you can find many relax areas, such as the characteristic "Concimaia", a very panoramic place endowed with pavilion, table, chairs and a romantic swing. In the west, close to the construction, we can find a little natural lake, habitat of ducks and frogs, whose croaking amplifies the feeling of close contact with nature. For nature and good form's lovers, Podere Benintendi offers the opportunity of walking and training in the open air. The structure is endowed with a very big swimmingpool (4,5x17 m). Guests can enter into the pool through a roman flight of steps that dips softly into the water. Here you can spend pleasant instants steeped in relax and welfare. Close to the pool, under the wonderful terrace made up of stones, is the characteristic "Enoteca" in rustic style, where you can buy oil of our production. Adjoining to the Entoteca, you can find the gymnasium, that guests can use free.
We were recommended to stay here from friends and it did not disappoint. Exceptional value. Lovely clean rooms, beautiful breakfast and dinners and a lovely pool area. It’s also close to the must see Old Certaldo and a short drive to the train. A lovely family business.
Beautiful, clean place in the heart of Tuscany. Very quiet and peaceful. Totally recommend it. Very close to S. Gimignano, Siena, Chianti, Firenze and all the places of interest in Tuscany. Amazing breakfast buffet. Staff is also really nice.
Beautiful and clean place in the heart of Toscana. The location is advantageous because you are very close to places like S.Gimignano, Firenze, Siena, Motepulciano, Montalcino etc. The family who owns this place is very friendly. The breakfast buffet is very nice and rich. There is a pool and even a gym. Ther is a shared kitchen if you want to cook/prepare your own dinner. The area is very peaceful. Especially the evenings are very calm and quiet, which creates a nice escape from the rush of everyday living.
I visited podere benintendi in June for a whole week. We only wished we could stay longer. The accommodation is very well kept with beautiful gardens all around. We enjoyed visiting the towns nearby. The owners are so nice and welcoming. We also had a chance to have dinner and food was divine. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday, with beautiful surroundings and an outstanding property with all amenities you can require.
My husband and I spent a few days at Podere and our host, Nicola, was there to welcome us. Nichola is the perfect host who knows the area, best restaurants and places of interest. The weather wasn’t great for us and rained every day which was a shame. I would suggest Nichola provide blankets in the bedrooms (the ones there are too thin and yes, I perhaps could have asked for one). Our apartment was adequate and clean, a typical Italian accommodation in design. Fabulous , decent sized, pool set in stunning surroundings.
