The accommodation

It originated from an ancient stone farmhouse, recently reconstructed and divided into 4 apartments.
These are all independent and furnished in the old "country" style as it was in those days.

We offer our guests satellite television, fireplace (excluding apartment "La Loggia" where you will find a typical wood oven), independent central heating and plenty of outside space where you can eat, sunbathe or just relax in the shade under the pine trees or around the swimming pool.

We produce Extra Vergine Oil and Montepulciano Red Wine, we raise rabbits, ducks and chickens. Our guest can take part in the vegetable garden growing, in the grape harvest, in the production of wine, in the olives harvest and so on…

The apartments can host from 2 till 4-6 people. Each apartment has been made with attention to the smallest details. Each apartment has an independent heating system, to pay according the use.

Activities and surrounding

You can walk or cycle along the very pleasant, quiet roads surrounding Podere Fontecastello. There are public tennis courts just 200m away. Just 3 km away you can find Sant'Albino, famous for massages, facials and therapeutic treatments with sulphur water.

Not to be missed are some of the most beautiful towns and villages in Tuscany. Pienza, the city of Father Pio II (Papa Pio II); Monticchiello, a small village where traditional comedies are re-enacted during August; Montalcino, very famous for its excellent Brunello wine; Bagni Vignoni, a small thermal place very well known for its hot water baths (pool open also during winter); Siena, where the "Palio" takes place twice a year (2 July and 16 August) which consists of a horse race in the main square; at just 20 km away you can visit lake Trasimeno. 

In Montepulciano, famous not only for the wine tasting of "Vino Nobile" but also for a lot of things to see. You can walk up to the top, to the Town Hall and main square "Piazza Grande" where Bravìo delle Botti (a barrel race) takes place the last Sunday in August, when the competitors have to push a barrel uphill. The city is divided into "contradas" each with their own history, colours and costumes. August is an especially exciting time to witness their displays.

Excellent
I have nothing but good things to say about this place. Quiet and beautiful, but an easy walk from the Montepulciano centro storico. Everyone there was nice and helpful, the studio was comfortable, and they have a very cute dog. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

I have been managing Podere Fontecastello since 1980 with my family.
