It is easy to get caught up in the moment when in Tuscany, especially when listening to Andrea Bocelli while enjoying a glass of wine and taking in the views. For a second you forget about everything around you and feel relaxed and calm.
Podere Benintendi Tuscany
Situated on a small hill with panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside, Podere Benintendi it is the perfect place for your base while exploring Tuscany and its surrounding areas. Or you can just relax by the outdoor pool and take in what you have read about Tuscany’s beauty.
About the Room
Our room was bigger than your average hotel room with high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, stone walls, and terracotta floors with views overlooking the Tuscany countryside.
It was decorated in a traditional country style and had air conditioning for the hot Tuscan sun, satellite TV, and access to good wifi. I understand that the 1 and 2-bed apartments had their own kitchenette.
How to get there & Location:
Podere Benintendi is in the perfect location for visiting all the well-known Tuscan places. Central Certaldo is only a 10-minute drive and within a half, an hour drive is San Gimignano, Siena and Chianti Castle “Poppiano”.
You have the option of two international airports if flying. Florence Airport is 48klms away and Pisa Airport is 71klms. It is easy to catch a train or get a transfer from either.
It is well located for walking and cycling in Tuscany’s countryside.
- Hire one of the Bikes that the Villa has to rent and take in the Tuscan landscape.
- Enjoy wines and drinks from the free access cantina by the pool
- Take a walk around the “podere” along the relaxing paths, small lakes, and lavender plants.
