About this listing

Apartment, sleeps 3 w twin bed, kitchen, dining, bathroom and panoramic deck. The farm overlooks the medieval town of Seggiano and Val D'Orcia at the foot of Monte Amiata in South central Tuscany, halfway between Siena and the beaches of Maremma.

The space

The Podere is a 4 hectare (10 acre) traditional Tuscan farm (certified organic) situated in one of the last truly unspoiled and untrodden areas of Tuscany. Podere San Martino consists of small group of newly renovated and charming stone buildings located at the end of a tree lined private country lane, on a ridge overlooking the town Seggiano with accommodations for up to five people in two separate furnished apartments: the "Olivella" and the "Elm".

The accommodations:
The "Olivella" has a spacious living room with a kitchen and dining area and a comfortable double bedroom with adjoining bathroom. The living room is furnished with a sofa bed.

The "Elm" consists of a large double bedroom with bathroom, small kitchen and a terrace overlooking the Val d'Orcia.
Both apartments have independent entrances.

The original stone pizza oven is available to guests, as are various picnic areas, flower and vegetable gardens, cherry orchards, vineyards and 4 hectares of olive groves.

The landscape:
Located in Southern Tuscany at the foot of Monte Amiata (1,768 M) and on the border of the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, San Martino is half way between the medieval towns of Seggiano and Castel del Piano.
From its hill top, looking down into the Val D’Orica, Podere San Martino offers 360 degrees of panoramic views; with sunrise above Monte Amiata, the extinct volcano once considered sacred to the Etruscans - to the East and spectacular sunsets over the Potentino Castel (11th century) and the down across the Val D’Orcia to the West, where on a clear day, the hills of Corsica are visible on the horizon.

The area is internationally renown for both, its olive oil, Olivastra Seggianese (DOP) and its wines; Montecucco, Brunello di Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano.

The history of San Martino
The first documented origins of Podere San Martino date back to the fourteenth century, when it was the hermitage of a community of Franciscan monks who tended the farm’s fields, vineyards and olive groves. Local legends recount tales of a lost Etruscan treasure hidden on the farm somewhere within its surrounding hills.

Podere San Martino stands in what can be considered one of the last truly wilderness areas in Tuscany where one can encounter boar, deer, porcupines, hedgehogs and hear the songs of cuckoo, upapa, thrushes and black birds, the cries of falcons, hawks and in the evening the nightingale.

What a beautiful place! This lovely aprtment which is basically a small house sits in the middle of a mountain with olive trees, wineries and lots of beautiful nature. The area must be accesse with a car, and so can one travel and see this beautiful and less known part of Tuscany. We had everthing we needed, from privacy, to a lovely kitchen where we could cook, endless nature to wander around, lots of tour guides and maps, and very kind and warm hospitality. It's a perfect place for wanting to relax, rest and explore the area. Highly recommended! And we fell in love with Orsa, the beautiful sweet family dog who always greeted us when we arrived and came to say hello every morning. What can I say. It was beautiful!

Absolutely amazing. Adorable little living area on an amazing Tuscan farm. The family was helpful. A sweet dog and they had kittens! There is a lovely river nearby where we jumped off cliffs and spent the afternoon. Plenty of vineyards and olive farms close by as well as adorable little towns. Perfect quiet getaway off the beaten path.

Good view, nice quiet and cozy place. In the apartment you could find everything you need. Clean bathroom with shower, comfortable bed, equipped kitchen. Jacobella's son met us at the nearest village, shown us the way to the house, told us about everything we could need. Jacobella is a very nice and polite host. She kindly bring us some food for breakfast and let us use her washing machine. Everything was fine, thank you for your hospitality, Jacobella!

Wonderful secluded and romantic place with fantastic views and exciting trails. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, exactly as described, nicely furnished in a rustic style. We had all we needed. The host, Jacobella, is a very nice and polite person, easy to communicate. We appreciated a bottle of local wine, marvelous vegetable soap and the color of the bed linen.

Remote and peaceful place to stay. The apartment is very spacious with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. The bed is very comfortable and Jacobella's dog Orsa is so lovable. Note that wifi is quite weak and only available when sitting at the kitchen table next to the wall. It works well enough for checking email and doing a little bit of online research for activities, but I wouldn't call it "full wifi access". This listing is more of a place for a retreat- read a book instead! (Jacobella provides a good set of books in different languages that you can borrow while you're there) It's about a 30-40 minute walk into the small town of Seggiano and the Bagno San Filippo hot springs are a 40 minute drive away and worth the trip. A great place to go if you're looking for some isolation away from the crowds and tourists of popular Italian towns.
