Apartment overview - owner's description

A heaven of peace in the heart of the Montagnola Senese

Podere Incrociati rises in the heart of Montagnola Senese, just 15 km/9 miles far from Siena and 75 km/47,5 miles far from Florence, among the greenery of age-old oaks, holm-oaks and chestnut-trees.
It is an ideal place to take a relaxing holiday far from the city din, 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 of art. 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, with a little stroke of luck, 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 that had been blackened by the smoke of the mantelpieces, which were once the only source of heating; 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 lays south of the building, alternating with the woods, and that is at the guests' disposal.
The building is divided into two independent apartments, all of which have private outside areas.
The apartment "Gaia" (about 200 m2 / 2152 sq. ft.) lays on the first floor and has a private entrance.
A large stone staircase goes from the arcade to the upper floor leading to a wide portico, furnished with sofas, which is at the guests' disposal as reading area or as an open-air dining room, with a view on the natural meadow and on the age-old oaks and holm-oaks.
Here there are two entrances to the apartment. The front entrance opens directly on a wide living room where you can find a large mantelpiece with two chestnut-wood benches inside, a table in the centre of the room, two sofas, a small cooking area, a wide ancient travertine sink, some pieces of forniture, satellite TV.
On the left side of the room there's the entrance to a gangway that leads to three pleasantly furnished double bedrooms, all of which have a private toilet, while from the right side of the central room a gangway goes to the other two double bedrooms, which have both a private toilet, and to the kitchen with cooking area and dining room. The door in the kitchen leads again to the portico.
