Podere Pietreta is a large and ancient farmhouse from the '700s, completely made of stone, which has been the subject of a meticulous and passionate restoration, carried out preserving the architectural details and using only original materials.
The farmhouse is located on a hill, in a position of exceptional beauty within the Val d'Orcia Natural and Artistic Park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The farmhouse, at 550 meters above sea level, dominates the hills that slope down towards the plain: from here you can admire a grandiose natural scenery, from Monte Cetona to the crags of San Casciano, from the fortress of Radicofani to the slopes of Monte Amiata.
To the suggestion of one of the most fascinating views of Tuscany a mild and pleasant climate is added, favored by the sheltered position and by the centuries-old oak forest that borders the Podere Pietreta estate.
The Swimming Pool
In the shade of large oaks there is a panoramic swimming pool with Roman steps (mt. 6×12).
The swimming pool is surrounded by a large English lawn and is elegantly equipped with a wrought iron pergola, sun loungers and deck chairs; a characteristic shower is set among the boulders.
Along the beautiful and panoramic road that leads to the farmhouse, it is easy to meet hares, squirrels, roe deer, porcupines and birds of different species: from hawks to herons, from magpies to nocturnal birds.
The flowering bushes of gorse and wild roses, the strawberry trees and cypresses, the berries are an integral part of the three-hectare park that surrounds the Podere. From the benches appropriately placed in the large garden, you can admire the magnificent panorama that characterizes the Podere Pietreta farmhouse. The large parking lot is placed in a position that does not disturb the view.
The park also includes an olive grove of over 100 olive trees, an orchard, several organic gardens; there are no fences but large spaces and natural terraces surrounded by borders of lavender, rosemary and flowering plants.
