Immersed in the nature of the Tuscan hills between Florence and Siena
The Podere Mezzastrada , nestled in the lush Tuscan countryside, is the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday to be savored.
The complex stands on a hill in the Certaldo wine area, home of Chianti wine.
The Podere Mezzastrada is just 1 km from Fiano and offers its guests 20 holiday apartments built in the typical Tuscan style and distributed in four splendid buildings, all included in the & # 8217 ; environment in order to be in total harmony with the surrounding nature.
The holiday apartments of Podere Mezzastrada are finely restored and equipped with all comforts, but every restoration has been carried out with respect for tradition.
Set in the manicured gardens of Podere Mezzastrada, the apartments are at the center of a fairytale setting while the splendid swimming pool with breathtaking views over the valley completes the work.
A curiosity between history and legend : in the 18th century Podere Mezzastrada was part of the Castle of Santa Maria Novella which, still today, watches over these lands.
The origin of the name of the farm instead refers to an old and singular legend, which we report at the bottom of the page, linked to a brave errant knight.
There is no shortage of attractions. Florence , the city of Dante Alighieri and Siena , renowned for its palio, are just 40 minutes away from Podere Mezzastrada.
The city of San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is only 23km away.
11Km instead divide Podere Mezzastrada from Certaldo , Boccaccio’s homeland.
But not just art, history and culture.
As mentioned, the wonderful land of Tuscany also offers food and wine tours all to be tasted and enjoyed, like those of the Certaldo area with its Chianti.
