Set in its spacious garden B&B Podere le Spighe (open 2014) is located in the countryside of Castiglion Fiorentino. It offers an outdoor swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, and a buffet-style breakfast provided daily. Cortona is 15 min. by car.

The space

Podere le Spighe is an old 18th century farm in the outskirts of Castiglion Fiorentino, in the heart of the Valdichiana Valley. The first time that i saw the farm there was hardly anything left of the home and the nature had taken over. The fields, once farmed, were now covered with wheat spikes. Me and my husband fell in love with the place and, although we were not yet sure of the purchase, for us it was already Podere Le Spighe, (Wheat Spikes Farm, in english language).

Guest access

We are pleasure to welcome you in our country house, where you have the possibility of enjoying, among vineyards and olive trees, the scents and flavors of the Tuscan tradition immersed in an uncontaminated nature, in a setting of absolute comfort and relax.
The Garden
Intimate and personal, the garden, which extends over an area of two hectares, is full of lavender bushes, aromatic plants and white roses. Ancient oaks, maple trees, cypress and olive trees complete the surroundings. Depending on the season, the vegetable garden offers homegrown produce which is used in the kitchen.

The swimming pool
The swimming pool (10x5 mt.) is located with perfect exposure, in full sun all day until sunset. Available to guests during their entire stay, it is a lovely spot for relaxing and enjoying a swim after a busy day’s sightseeing.

The rooms
The farmhouse features 3 independent rooms each equipped with every comfort (private bathroom with shower, an introductory basket of toiletries, television, air conditioning , insect screens, independent heating system, minibar, safe and WIFI internet access). All the rooms are different. Furnished in a warm and welcoming style, each room enjoys the light and colors of the Tuscan countryside. Towels, hairdryers and kettles (with a wide offer of teas and infusions) are available.

Interaction with guests

Francesca will help you for restaurants reservations, wine and culture tour and all you will need.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at Francesca and Andrea's house. We can't give them enough credit for their warmth and hospitality. They are experts in their fields of delicious foods, great wine (we learned more from Francesca and Andrea than two wine tours that we went to) and are very helpful to make reservations for you and give advice for things to see which is easily accessible by car or by train. The room was great with our own front door, spacious, cleaned every day and super cozy. Francesca and Andrea made us feel like we were at home and gave us a holiday that we will never forget and cherish forever. If you ever have the chance. Stay here, eat dinner and drink wine. Better than any 5 star hotel we've ever been to. We wish them both the best of luck and we hope that we can meet again sometime soon. Your friends from north of the wall.

We stay at Podere le spighe 3 nights during our mini-moon in toscana. That was the perfect spot to be quiet and relax, we even had the pool just for us. It's decorated with taste and well located to visit Cortona, Montipulciano, Siena... The owners are very friendly, flexible and were helpful with all our query. Francesca answered to all my messages really fast and recommended us places to eat when we were on the go. I strongly recommend this B&B if you want to discover this part of tascany.

Francescas place is a wonderful place to be. We made a stop for two days on our trip to the south and it was very relaxing. Everything was made very nicely! Also the dinners we took were delicious! Francesca and Andrea are very nice people!

This was easily one of the biggest highlights of our Italy Grand Tour. Francesca and her husband were extremely accommodating, providing transportation from the train station when we needed it, recommendations for activities, supplies, even bikes for a jaunt into town. Their home is relaxing and the pool a welcome respite from the heat. But any stay would not be complete without having dinner there at least one evening. Francesca is an INCREDIBLE chef. We ate our way throughout Italy and her meals were by far among the best!

Country Charm B&B is the perfect rural retreat to explore southern Tuscany and northern Umbria. We explored the regional attractions by hire car and also took a day trip to Florence by train from the nearby Castiglion Fiorentino train station, returning in the evening to enjoy Francesca's home made meal - a perfect stress free day. Thank you Francesca and Andrea for your warm and attentive hospitality, excellent facilities and fresh organic home cooking. Highly recommended. George and Lucy

I can't say enough good things about our stay with Francesca. She and her husband are very kind people and do an incredible job. My husband and I felt totally at home during our 4 night stay. The location is beautiful and the property/rooms are very clean and well kept. The homemade breakfasts in the morning are the best -- delicious coffee, pastries, fresh fruit, etc. My husband and I also ate Francesca's home cooked dinners for two of the nights (price 20 Euros per person). She is a wonderful cook and we enjoyed her dinners just as much or more than many of the restaurants we went to during our 2 week stay in Italy... definitely worth doing!!! Anyway, I was sad to have to leave!! I highly, highly recommend this place!!!! Thanks again for a great stay! :)

Mi sono trasferita in Toscana 10 anni fa. L'amore per questo luogo mi ha convinto a condividerlo con i miei ospiti. Per questo è nato Podere le Spighe.
