Podere San Carlo is an elegant farmhouse set on a hilltop with wonderful views of Chianti's rolling hills, vineyards and fields. A sunny, airy house, it has just the right feel for a Tuscan holiday. The interior is furnished in a simple but very comfortable rustic style and fitted with a wonderful kitchen that leads to an outdoor dining area under a large loggia. A swimming pool is set below the farmhouse in the pretty garden, with a tiled terrace for sun loungers and umbrellas. A couple looks after the house and its grounds and lives in a separate building on the property. Montagnana is a short drive from San Casciano in Val di Pesa, where several of the great Tuscan wineries have their headquarters, and within easy distance of Florence.
