Vacation Rental Podere Fontecastello - Montepulciano

Via Acqua Puzzola 3 - Montepulciano

Price starting from 60.00
The Podere Fontecastello is a farmhouse in one of the most enchanting spots of Tuscany near Siena: Montepulciano, also known as Perla del Cinquecento (the pearl of the 16th century), famous for its churches and its beautiful palazzi.

The mansion, nestled in a peaceful and green area, only half a mile from the historic center of Montepulciano, is perfect for pleasant and relaxing holidays surrounded by a thriving nature. The place is said to be named after a spring that supposedly flowed from a niche for religious worship. In the past Fontecastello was a convent in the heart of a valley within a forest called the Bosco di Zoccoli.

The Podere Fontecastello consists of 4 independently-accessible apartments. At their disposal guests will find a fireplace or heaters, individually-controlled heating, an ample garden where it is also possible to eat in the shade of the 2 huge nut-trees, an outdoor pool (seasonal), and a terrace to sunbathe or relax. Guests can also take advantage of free onsite parking. Among other activities, guests can play tennis games in the surrounding area.

Probably the nearest B&B to town centre that has a swimming pool, which was ideal....

We spend a week in Fontecastello and it was just greet! The farmhouse is really close to the city and the Autostatione (center bus station). Also the supermarket and the tennis court was very close. The weather was very nice for middle of March during the day, but every evening we heated up the fire place and it was really romatic and we had lot's of fun. We had breakfast every morning on the poarch and my little dog could enjoy the garden. She had the best time I guess! Antonella could speak very good english, and we could talk "italian" with the other part of the family too. Unfortunately we could use the swimming pool and the jacuzzi because of the weather, and the montenbikes because of the oldness of the wheels. Anyway our apartment was soo big for two of us, with a big kitchen and living room together, a hug bedroom and a bathroom. I can strongly recommend this place for wine- and city tour funs too, because you could reach Siena, Firenze easily and you are in the middle of the three famous Toscan wine area: Chianti, Montalcino (Brunello) and Montepulciano (Vino Nobile)!
