Podere Belvedere is a romantic semi-detached cottage situated in open countryside just 10 km from the centre of Siena. The private semi-detached villa is located a few steps away from the owner’s house and another privately owned apartment with permanent residents.The cottage has its own entrance and a private garden ideal to have dinner al fresco during the warm summer Tuscan evenings.
The Belvedere translation into Italian is 'beautiful view'. It is not by chance that the owners chose it: in fact the villa has a wonderful view of the countryside surrounding it. The views can not only be enjoyed from the cottage but also from the large pool found in a private position behind the owner’s house. The pool is shared with the owners'family.


At Belvedere the setting is perfect for a couple who are looking for a relaxing holiday in a cosy house with good access to the sights. The cottage has a warm and colourful atmosphere provided by various creative furnishings made by the artistic owner.
The house is entered from a private furnished terrace into a bright kitchen and living room area where there are two comfortable futons. In this room there is also a wooden table with four chairs. The ground floor kitchen is fitted in typical Italian style and includes gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave.

The traditional Tuscan wooden beamed ceiling lends a warm feeling to the cottage. On one side of the room a staircase leads to the mezzanine floor bedroom where there is a large double bed.

The spacious mezzanine bedroom with high ceiling is entered from a wooden staircase. It has an excellent view provided by a large window on one side. On the ground floor there is a bathroom with shower and washing machine.


The owners live close by and attached to the back of the cottage is their painting studio. They have a friendly cat.

Pool Info


The pool is located 80 meters away from the cottage, behind the owner’s house. It lies under tall trees and is surrounded by a pretty sunny lawn with views of the Tuscan hills. A wooden gazebo equipped with a table and comfortable chairs provides a relaxing spot of shade to relax with a book or a local Chianti wine after a day sightseeing.

The pool is shared with the owners and their young family, however is positioned so that it has privacy from both houses. Near the pool there is a changing room with toilet. The pool is fully equipped with umbrellas and sun beds. The pool is 13x5meters, from 1.2 to 2.4 meters deep and open from June to September.

Pros Het ligt iets afgelegen en het landschap is niet zo mooi als in de chianti streek. Goede restaurants zijn moeilijk in deze streek te vinden. Het huis is bijzonder prettig, de verhuurders wonen ernaast maar je hebt er absoluut geen last van. Ideaal voor 2 personen. Het zwembad is fantastisch en vergoedt veel. Van hieruit zijn tripjes naar Siena ,Arezzo , Perugia en het Trasimeense meer ( valt tegen) gemakkelijk te doen
Cons Wifi verbinding is er niet ondanks vermelding in de folder. Zelf in Siena bij Vodafone een mobiele wifi geregeld met Italiaanse chip. Werkte prima in het huis. Zoiets moeten de verhuurder ook kopen , afgezien van de mobiele wifi ( in Nederland 100 euro) en de chip voor een maand van 20 euro 4 GB lost dat het probleem op. Heeft mij nu een halve dag van mijn vakantie gekost om het te regelen. Routebeschrijving naar het huis moet aangepast wordt soms wordt rechts genoemd maar moet links zijn. Verder moet er goede instructie voor de satelliet tv komen ook in het Engels.verhuurder spreekt alleen Italiaans en drie woorden Engels .
Local attractions In sovicille is een aardige pizzeria met buiten terras.

The owner has now rectified this problem and has purchased a WiFi booster. WiFi now available and free of charge.

The owner apologises for the inconvenience. They have had a lot of trouble with wifi and router due to recent storms. There is currently no wifi available until the owner updates us.

Pros De ligging is schitterend en heerlijk rustig. Het is een knus huisje met een heerlijke tuin eromheen. De eigenaars zijn erg vriendelijk en nemen alle tijd voor je als je aankomt.
Local attractions De namen van de restaurants ben ik helaas vergeten, maar er is vlakbij een restaurant waar je goed kunt eten. Wij zijn vanuit Podere Belvere naar plaatsen in de omgeving geweest, zoals Florence , Siena en San Gimignano. Vanuit het huisje zijn deze, en andere steden en dorpjes goed te bezoeken.
