Podere is an organic farm complex in the heart of Tuscany. It is perfect for people who want to enjoy walking, horse riding or sheer tranquillity. The area is well known for Chianti and Vernacci wines and for its typical delicious Tuscan dishes. The apartments are in a variety of colonial style houses set on a hill. There is a delightful swimming pool. The friendly, hospitable owners have 250 hectares of land. They produce organic wine, olive oil and honey. The farm complex organises evenings with Tuscan specialities or pizzas a number of times a week. Historic Volterra and San Gimignano with its amazing towers are well worth a visit. The famous cities of Florence, Siena and Lucca are only an hours drive away
The interior of the accommodation can differ slightly from the pictures. However, the level of comfort is as described. Access the house you have to go through 1 km of unpaved road

Excellent property. We were not aware that there would be so many apartments at Pelagaccio - there were a total of 10 apartments. However, this was not a problem as each family had their own space and it was good to make new friends in the communal patio areas. The swimming pool is large and truly excellent.
The farm animals were fun for the children - they enjoyed feeding the pigs and watching the birds in the fields. The location is awesome, with stunning views across the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The owners were so friendly, with he and his wife being so kind and helpful. We have stayed at several properties of this Agency so far, but this has been our favourite.
One negative point is that there was no washing machine at Pelagaccio, but there was a one...
One negative point is that there was no washing machine at Pelagaccio, but there was a one available at the other farm location (Diacceroni - just 15 minutes walk away).
Tips for further visitors of this property
The regular food and social events at Diacceroni were very good. We enjoyed a barbecue evening, two pizza evening and two Tuscan meals where there was so much food to eat we almost exploded! Many of those events were free, but even the paid Tuscan meals were good value at just ?50 for two adults and two children including wine. The local communal roads are rocky and very dusty - the last 1KM from the main road to Pelagaccio was quite rough, so be careful to drive slowly.
