Podere La Casetta is a lovely restored estate of 7 little villas located about 2km from the hill top town of Montaione. It is a working farm which produces its own olive oil and wine. It is surrounded by the farm olive groves.

The pool is down a short path, and protected from the villas by a little forest, which provides it with plenty of privacy. There are two pools, a larger, deeper one and a baby pool. Around them are several places to relax.

The estate is composed of two buildings which house the 7 villas and a reception area. Throughout the estate the gardens are well maintained and offer pretty views through the surrounding olive grove. To one side Montaione can be seen on the hill across the property's olive grove and Vineyard.

The swimming pool is located 150 meters away from the buildings that make up the estate. It is surrounded by olive groves and forests, through which there can be seen the distant hills. Off to one side there are views of the hill top town of Montaione.

Around the pool are wooden pergolas shading tables with chairs, while several sun beds are dotted here and there on the terracotta paved deck surrounding the pool. There are two parts to the pool, a larger, deep adult pool which measures 7x15metres and is 1.5 metres deep, attached to one side is the baby pool which is 1 metre deep. Metal steps provide access to the crystal water. The pool is open from 15th May to 15th September, weather permitting.
