Placed within the green hills of Lunigiana, the land of a hundred castles, in a Tuscan, antique stone farmhouse, Podere Montese is a completely renovated agritourism surrounded by hectares of cultivated fields, olive groves, pastures, streaming meadows, woods and a park equipped with a nature trail littered with fitness tools.
The main building consists of an old farmhouse, hosting four bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, and wide master apartment with living quarters with triple hall, habitable kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an attic. A restaurant, too, is part of the property.
The second building is set up within an olive grove and is made up of five double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom and independent access. One of these bedrooms was knowingly designed to accommodate differently-abled people.
The third building consists of wide conference hall on the ground floor and two spacious apartments on the upper floor; one of the apartments has a large terrace with view over the whole farm and leading to the living quarters with open-style kitchen and to a double bedroom and a bathroom, the other has spacious living quarters with open-style kitchen, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms. Close to this last building, we find a warehouse and a garage.
Also on the premises, a gorgeous pool area with Jacuzzi and reserved wellness center with sauna, steam room and sensory shower. The pool is equipped with telescopic covering offering a controlled climate within, making its usage possible even during mid-seasons, late nights and rainy days.
Barn, hayloft and abattoir complete the property: cows, donkeys, sheep, hens and geese are being currently bred there, set free around the rangeland.
Just upon the limit of the agritourism Podere Montese, the antique Via Francigena, a road famous for having been used through time by pilgrims reaching Rome from the lands of the Franks, goes by. To this day, after extensive remodelling and reconstruction works on the old path, the Via is still used by backpackers and devotees from all Europe every year, following the very same steps that brought our ancestors to the Capital.
