About the property

Villa Pomona

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.

Pomona -La Villa- Maastricht, The Netherlands

  • 5 of 5

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!

Tuscan Dream

  • 5 of 5

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.

Pomona review - August 2008

  • 4 of 5

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...

Bel casale di grande atmosfera

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in due famiglie per 4 gg a fine aprile e ci siamo trovati molto bene! Monica e la mamma Inge sono molto gentili e disponibili e ci hanno fatto sentire subito a nostro agio.

Il casale conserva tutto il fascino e l'atmosfera degli anni passati, sembra di essere tornati indietro nel tempo! Gode di ampi spazi sia all'interno (grande cucina e soggiorno con un meraviglioso camino, 4 ampie stanze da letto e due bagni) che all'esterno (zona pranzo sotto due grandissimi pini, prato e zona piscina, chiusa però in questo periodo). Non aspettatevi il lusso, bensì l'atmosfera genuina di una vera dimora di campagna. Buono il rapporto qualità prezzo, buona la distanza da Siena (circa 15' di auto). Stra consigliato, se capita ci tornerò molto volentieri!

Un lieu unique au milieu de la Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Dès l'accueil par Inge et Monica, Pomona devient comme notre vieille maison de campagne. L'ombre des cèdres fut la bienvenue en cet été de canicule, et la fraîcheur de la piscine appréciée. De retour de visites (Florence, Sienne, Orcia, San Gimignano...), les paniers de légumes offerts et le vin de la propriété nous permettaient de passer de belles soirées. Merci encore pour cette semaine authentique et la gentillesse de nos hôtes.

POMONA is located on the famous Chiantigiana road that winds through the hills between Florence and Siena (the SR 222), 9 km from Siena and 8 km from Castellina in Chianti. The farm’s position makes it ideal for exploring the famous centers of art and culture in Tuscany, as well as the quiet and charming Maremma coast.

FROM FLORENCE (55 km): leave the A1 motorway at the Firenze-Certosa exit, take the Firenze-Siena Superstrada (highway), and exit at ‘San Donato’. Follow the directions for Castellina in Chianti. From Castellina in Chianti continue towards Siena (for 8 km on the SR 222 regional road).

FROM ROME (270 km): take the northbound A1 motorway. Leave at the Valdichiana exit. Take the Siena-Bettolle road and, from Siena, the Superstrada highway towards Florence. Exit at Siena-Nord, and follow the SR222 towards Castellina in Chianti for approximately 9km.

Other Activities: The farm is equipped for art activities (peinture, sculpture)
