Condo/Apartment
The IRIS apartment is on the ground floor of a characteristic barn on the farm estate of Podere Albereto, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside on the rolling hills above Florence, overlooking the San Polo in Chianti valley. The estate of 10 hectares of fields, olive groves and woodland is only 13 km from Florence and 2 km from San Polo in Chianti. At 350 metres above sea-level there is a gentle breeze in the evening so air-conditioning isn't necessary even in the height of summer. At Podere Albereto you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, admire the breathtaking view of the Chianti landscape under the shade of a pergola, swim in the pool, sunbathe on the terrace, enjoy a home-cooked barbeque accompanied by a Chianti wine or alternatively visit all the cultural and artistic treasures that Tu...The IRIS apartment is on the ground floor of a characteristic barn on the farm estate of Podere Albereto, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside on the rolling hills above Florence, overlooking the San Polo in Chianti valley.

The owners of the property, Fabio and Trinidad, live in the main farm building and are always happy to provide information and assistance about things to do and see in the area and further afield. There are 1000 olive trees on the property and an excellent extra-virgin olive oil is produced and sold on the farm. You may also want to take a look at the beautifully hand-crafted vases, pottery and paintings created by Trinidad in her art workshop at Podere Albereto.More
