Where we are
Podere San Bartolo is a recently converted Tuscan farmhouse lying in the rolling hills of the Chianti area, in the heart of Tuscany. It consists of 2 buildings: San Bartolo and Antiche Mura each bringing memories of the past to our present days.
The holiday apartments in these buildings are very confortable and well equipped. San Bartolo is a big stone house. It consists of a Main Building and a Hayloft, both restored. It lies only 100 m from one of the village’s medieval gates, called “Porta Fiorentina”. One side of the Main Building looks out onto the Via Cassia, the original road linking Florence to Rome.
The building has a large panoramic courtyard, known as “l’Aia”, where, in times past, many of the farmers’ activities were carried out.
Here your gaze will lose itself in the beautiful views of vineyards and olive groves in the Elsa Valley. The “Aia” leads to the single apartments.
Antiche Mura is a building consisting of two apartments standing inside the fortified walls surrounding this medieval village. It lies 200 m from San Bartolo.
