Traditional Tuscan farm renovated to a high standard

The Home

This Podere is a traditional Tuscan farm which has been carefully renovated to a high standard, and today offers lucky holidaymakers a collection of five beautifully furnished independent dwellings, accommodating up to twenty guests. It’s located in the heart of Tuscany, about forty-five kilometres south of Siena and within easy reach of the towns of Asciano and Chiusure, and their local amenities. Podere Aster is surrounded by verdant hills, peaceful countryside and charming villages. The ancient and famous city of Siena is just one hour north-west, or you can travel about thirty-five kilometres south-east to Montepulciano to taste some of the noblest red wines Italy has to offer.

The five dwellings within modern feature, restrained interiors, whitewashed walls and some boast ancient exposed beams, attractive arches, patio doors and plenty of windows, from which you can admire the exquisite views. Each villa option also...

The Neighborhood

The amazing city of Siena (30km) is about an hour away from Podere Aster, and an obvious choice for a day’s sightseeing. The impressive Piazzo del Campo – which hosts the famous Palio horse race twice each summer – is the perfect place to start. Beyond this vast square, you can explore the medieval streets of the historic centre, which is a Unesco world heritage site, climb to the top of Torre del Mangia for magnificent views across Siena’s terracotta rooftops, and visit Duomo di Siena Cathedral. Closer to home, your nearest town of Asciano (11km) lies in the picturesque Creti Senese region in the Ombrone River valley. The church of Saint Agatha dates back to the twelfth-century and leads you into the old town’s narrow streets.  Wine tasting at Montepulciano (35km) is just forty-five minutes away, so start nominating drivers now. The wine tours take you through the medieval streets of this delightful town, and a visit to the cellars will lead you underground. Savour the flavour of the famous noble red wines, and learn more about the history of wine making in this region, and which local dishes make the perfect accompaniment. Tours can be booked for trips out to the vineyards, or simply wander through town from winery to tasting shop.
