POMONA is a traditional estate situated in the heart of the Chianti countryside, near the ancient city of Siena. The oldest buildings of the farm date back to the 1750s. The estate maintains its original structure and still comprises the residential villa, farmhouses, storehouses and the winery. This is what makes it fascinating even today – it conveys a real impression of a traditional Tuscan country estate, surrounded by gardens, olive groves and vineyards. In addition to producing wine and olive oil, the family now runs a small holiday business based in the old villa, following the principles of sustainability and eco-friendly solutions. The villa is surrounded on three sides by a large courtyard shaded by three century-old Lebanon cedars. Embedded in the orchards and gardens and surrounded by olive and fruit trees guest can enjoy a swimming pool offering spectacular views over the rolling hills. Two apartments with independent entrances are available for rent.
Pomona is a working farm that produces organic extra virgin olive oil and Chianti Classico wine which are available for tasting and purchase.
This is the part of the estate that formed the residential manor house. The main entrance of the apartment opens onto a large courtyard shaded by three ancient cedar trees. The apartment extends over two floors linked by a grand stone staircase. The lower floor consists of the huge old kitchen with its impressive beams and great fireplace. It now also furnished with a gas cooker and oven, fridge and other kitchen equipment, as well as armchairs and sofas.
On the upper floor there are four bright and spacious bedrooms with the original furniture from the late 1800s. Of these, two are double rooms, one is a twin and the other is a family room consisting of a double and a single bed. A cot is available for babies and can be placed in any of the rooms. On the same floor there are two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath and shower.
We rented La Villa in september. We have two kids, twins, they where nearly two years old then. We loved our stay. The owners are very friendly. The house is old (about 300 years) but very nice if you like this style.
We had everything we needed. The boys liked the garden to play and the swimmingpool very much (There is a gate to keep the kids in the garden and out of the pool). The surroundings are very nice.The owners live nextdoor, but there is all the privacy you need. The wine and olive oil are very good. There are a lot of small villages to visit nearby. And the big ones a little further.
We will be sure to visit Pomona again!
I stayed in this rustic villa in August 2010 with my children and parents. It was an absolutely stunning location and despite arriving very late Inge came out to warmly greet us and show us round. The accomodation was large and sprawling with lots of room foe the children to explore. The pool is set away from the villa which made it easy for me to control when the children went swimming. Inge was the perfect host, very friendly and a mine of local information. We visited Firenze for a few days during our stay and she gave us lots of good advice on where the best places were to visit. At the end of our stay we loaded up on the excellant Chianti and olive oil. Inge embraced us like family and we certainly were sorry to go.
Charming guests. Landscape is just marvelous. Very close to Sienna. The garden and swimming pool are great. The house is large but kitchen and bathrooms need to be renewed. Perfect for families with kids or 2 families. Guests are on the same property so can be easily contacted for any recommendation or issue. Internet not available in the rental property but at the guest property. Very good place for visiting Chianti, Florence, Sienna, San Giminiano...
Gross und gut ausgestattet. Fenster mit Mosquito-Gitter. Gute und feste Mattratzen. Gross und schattige Vorplatz mit Sitzbereich. Schöne Pool mitten im Obstgarten mit Blick auf Weinbergen. Besitzerfamilie ausserordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Sehr tierlieb.
Leider kein Fussweg zum nächsten Ort da Strasse stark befahren. Zahl der Pool Liegestühle knapp wenn beide Wohnungen belegt sind.

Nous étions 7 adultes et nous avons été très bien accueillis par Inge et Monica qui nous ont permis de découvrir cette belle région. Alternant randonnée et tourisme nous avons passé une très bonne semaine. La maison est bien située au milieu des vignes et des oliviers et possède tout ce qui est nécessaire pour vivre confortablement. A recommander.
