Ginestra is a first floor villa in the main building of Piettori. It is accessed from the central courtyard, up a flight of covered, terracotta stairs.
Inside is a brightly painted living area, divided into two rooms by a large arch. The windows of this room look out into the courtyard. To one side is a good quality and comfortably furnished lounge which has a double sofa and an armchair.
To the other side is the kitchen which is well equipped and includes gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer. Along one wall of the kitchen is a traditional Tuscan open fireplace, ideal for the cooler nights. In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table with chairs.

Location: Piettorri

Piettorri is a wonderfully restored Tuscan estate composed of two buildings accommodating 8 villas. It is located in the central Tuscan area between the coast and the Chianti, only a short distance from Casole d'Elsa, San Gimignano and Volterra. Siena is also within easy reach.
The pool is located in a lower position than the villas. It is a short walk down the slope from the buildings. From here there are excellent views of the rolling hills covered with fields and forests, typical of this area of Tuscany.
The main building houses five Tuscan villas, plus the caretakers apartment and a communal dining area. This dining area is opened to guests who wish to benefit from the traditional Tuscan meals that are offered by the caretakers.
The second building is a cottage of two pretty villas. The entire property is carefully maintained to a high standard. The caretakers are on hand to answer any queries guests may have.

Pool Info

The swimming pool is located down a slope to the back of the main building. It has a lovely sunny position with an excellent view of the surrounding hills that are covered with fields and forests.
Around the pool is a large stone paved sun deck and a pretty lawn to one side. There are several deck chairs, sun beds and umbrellas for relaxing by the crystal water. A canvas covered pergola to one side shades a table with chairs.
The pool is 12x 6 metres, it is open from May to September, weather permitting.
There is also a small lake on the property.

Pros Accès facile, seulement 300m de chemin en cailloux. Le calme, le grand confort du logement et des chambres plus vastes que ne le montrent les photos. Fort belle déco de Fransesco (il est architecte), et qui est au petits soins pour tous les petits détails et organise même un barbecue avec tous les hôtes du gîte. Belle piscine à laquelle je rajouterais de petites tables pour poser ses affaires. L'absence de terrasse privative est compensée par des tables d'extérieures en suffisance pour chaque logement. Bien prévoir cependant la "logistique" : nous faisons nos courses pour 2-3 jours, au retour d'excursions, et on préfère Poggibonsi-Sud (30km), où se trouve un Coop géant et fort bien fourni (+ 1 pompe à essence). Il y a un autre Coop à Pomarance, 21km mais...ca tourne !
Cons Détail très léger sans grande importance : la télé n'offre que 2 chaînes en français, ce qui est curieux vu qu'il s'agit du satellite. Mais on n'est pas là pour ça...
Local attractions Plutôt que Radicondoli, nous avons préféré Casole d'Elsa. Il y a d'abord le Cafe Casolani dans la rue principale que nous avons fait un midi : excellent ! Ce resto dresse ses tables en rue le soir où par bonheur, toute circulation routière est bannie. Ensuite pour notre dernier soir nous avons fait le Dal Brigante, nettement plus basique mais correct, où les tables avec vue panoramique sont systématiquement réservées aux "locaux" qui connaissent le patron. Dommage mais c'était bon quand même. Nos voisins français nous ont parlé aussi d'un resto à Menzano.

Pros Rooms were large - much bigger than the photos portray. Grounds are very well kept, Francesco was there every day and we saw the gardener multiple times. Swimming pool area was kept tidy and clean and there were ample sunloungers. Lots of nice villages and towns not too far from Piettori, La Pergola in Radicondoli was the highlight for us. Francesco was very helpful, answering questions and fulfilling requests. Even though all of the rooms were occupied when we stayed, it never felt busy or overcrowded, Piettori was perfect for a relaxing holiday. We stayed over a bank holiday, Francesco organised a barbecue for everyone, it was a fantastic night and was lovely to chat to all of the guests. Pietorri felt like it offered exceptional value for money.
Cons Swimming pool is quite deep with no shallow end. No air conditioning meant that it could get a little uncomfortable at night in August. We knew about the above when booking so it was no surprise. Limited options for the "onsite restaurant", we were only offered to attend one evening.
Local attractions La Pergola in Radicondoli - beautiful views, great food, exceptional value for money. Osteria del Borgo in Mensano - great food in a lovely location.

Pros Zeer mooie en zéér rustige ligging, midden de toscaanse heuvels. Prachtig landgoed, zwembad goed onderhouden, prima ontvangst (de beheerder Francesco is ook steeds te bereiken en verblijft zelf op het landgoed, wat makkelijk is). Het dichtstbijzijnde dorp is Casole d'Elsa (15 km) waar je een (beperkte) supermarkt vindt en boven een klein maar fijn dorpje waar je ook lekker kunt eten. Er is geen bakker in de buurt, je kan wel vers brood krijgen in de supermarkt. Er is wel een COOP op een 30 km waar je heel veel aanbod hebt.
De toscaanse avonden die 1 of tweemaal per week doorgaan waarbij wordt gekookt door een toscaanse kok, zijn een aanrader, heel lekker en telkens iets anders.
Cons De badkamer is verouderd, dit in tegenstelling tot de rest van het appartement. Er is geen vaatwas in dit appartement en er is niet zoveel kookmateriaal, maar nipt genoeg voor 4 personen. Tip: als je 's avonds toekomt is e meestal geen mogelijkheid meer tot winkelen. Je kan wel eten in het restaurant (het enige) in Montiguidi zelf, Piato Forte, het ziet er niet zo mooi uit aan de buitenkant maar ze hebben lekkere pastagerechten, goeie wijn en het is er vrij goedkoop.
Local attractions Caffe Casolani boven in het dorp Casole d'Elsa, waar je voor 25 euro eet wat de kok maakt (drie gangen), er is geen menukaart. Wij hebben er enkele keren gegeten en het is er heerlijk. Best wel reserveren. Het pizzarestaurant in Casole d'Elsa waar veel volk naartoe gaat en waar je moet aanschuiven om binnen te raken, is GEEN aanrader, je moet er zeer lang wachten én de kwaliteit is ondermaats. Er is ook een lekker ijsjessalon aan het pleintje op het einde van de straat met restaurants. De steden Sienna, Volterra, Firenze, San Giminiano, Massa Maritima liggen op haalbare afstand, hou wel rekening met de vele haarspeldbochten. Tip: een vespa meenemen is daar fantastisch! . De eigenaar heeft een eigen meertje, je kan de sleutel vragen aan de beheerder, het meer ligt op 100 m van het landgoed.
