This natural stone farm house was built in 1909, while the swimming pool and the garden are more recent (of 2009). The owners have made a very big work of conservation, intentionally trying not to alter the structure and architecture of this marvelous Tuscan Villa, restoring the old original terracotta tiles (cotto), the wood beams at the ceiling, the windows of natural stone and the frames of the doors with great good taste and high care for the details. The same they have fortunately done with the original furniture of the house that have been restored and are now present in the house. This really gives to this house the atmosphere of an old Tuscan villa. It is really a place where you can feel at home. At your arrival the owner, who speaks English, will serve to you a welcome-buffet with our local products. This is a wonderful way to start an unforgettable holiday in Podere San Giuseppe.
