The space

Podere di Maggio is a ecological farm that produces chestnuts and extra vergine olive oil. The farm rents out 4 houses and 1 appartment. The houses are totaly indipendent and each situated in a diferend contest: in an old olive yard, under an ancient chetsnut tree or in an open space overlooking the valley.
The old houses in stone are restructurated with much care and give space to 2 - 6 persons. Each one has a kitchen, shaded terrace with barbecue and unlimited space around it.
In summer the houses are cool inside, thanks to the walls in stone. In winter they are heathed on wood or gas.
Podere di Maggio is situated on the foothills of Monte Amiata in the southeast of Tuscany, in the beautiful and wild valley of the river Fiora, where many springs provide cristalclear water and where encounters with wild animals is something that happens every day.

Guest access

We have a small swimming pool and in the river, at somewhat 10 minutes from here, you can have a great bath in cristal clear water.

The neighbourhood

Who comes to visit us can enjoy in the first place the peace and silence of this place, splendid walks in the surrounding nature reserves and the Monte Amiata, an old vulcano that enriches the area with hot springs (Saturnia, Petriolo, Bagno Vignoni, etc.) and during winter time offers us the possibility to ski.
In the surroundings it's possible to visit medieval towns (Arcidosso, Castel del Piano, etc.); sites of cult )Monte Labro, the tibettan monastery Merigar, old convents); etruscan sites and the splendid villages that developed around there (Pitigliano, Sorano, etc.).
A walk in the Parco Faunistico to see the wolves, a fresh bath in the river where a small waterfall created a pool, deep enough to swim in.
The beautiful tyrrenian coast with marvelous beaches is not far and neither the Bolsena Lake.
Siena, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi and Montalcino are only about one our from here.

We had a wonderful time in Rita's place! Highly recommended to anyone who looks to get away from the busy modern lifestyle and be one with nature, in a hippie kind of place! Unfortunately we didn't meet Rita but the communication with her was very good and her nice friend welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The house itself is simple and charming and has everything you need to cook nice Italian meals. One thing to take into consideration - living in nature also means being surrounded by insect friends, some of which may seem a bit intimidating at times (depending on where and when you meet them :) There are many nice things to do in the area (nicely explained in the little guide which is given upon arrival) or you can just relax, either by the pool or by the river (15 min walk - highly recommended). All in all - very nice experience, which we would gladly do again!

Liebe Rita, lieber Peter, danke für Eure detaillierte Anfahrtsbeschreibung, wir haben das Poderre Maggio schnell finden können. Empfangen wurden wir "im Paradies" mit einer Flasche toskanischen Weines und super Ausflugstipps. Wir hatten das Gefühl, willkommen zu sein, nicht nur bei Euch, sondern bei all den "tierischen Mitbewohnern", selbst bei den Wildschweinen, obwohl die doch dann etwas zurückhaltend waren. Casa della Nonna war auch sehr angenehm, uns fehlte es an Nichts. Alles war geschmackvoll und liebevoll vorbereitet. Sehr angenehm war uns Franzeska nebenan, eine kluge und tolle Dame. Danke und viele Grüße an sie, auch für ihre Inspirationen und ihr sizilianisches Eis; perfetto. Wir würden Euer Pedere Maggio unbedingt weiter empfehlen. Liebe Grüße aus Berlin Norma und Bernd

Response from Rita:
We vinden het altijd buitengewoon jammer dat iemand het niet 100% naar z'n zin heeft gehad. In sommige gevallen heeft dat wellicht ook een beetje te maken met de gemaakte keuze. Een huis midden in een olijfboomgaard midden in een natuurgebied is fantastisch voor de rust, maar niet erg aantrekkelijk voor 2 meiden van 14 / 15 jaar oud... Het gebeurt één keer per jaar dat iemand zich niet helemaal thuis voelt. In een volle bezetting van 5 maanden valt dat gelukkig mee. In sommige van die gevallen bieden we de betreffende gasten een week aan in een ander huis, maar aangezien de plek dezelfde blijft, had dat in dit geval geen zin. We hebben dan ook de helft van het huurbedrag terugbetaald. Uiteindelijk hebben ze toch regelmatig van het zwembad gebruik kunnen maken. Wifi was er niet in het huis, maar wel practisch naast het zwembad. Helaas kan je in Toscane authentieke huizen niet aanpassen en er dus geen grote ramen in zetten. Dat zouden we overigens ook niet willen. Vroeger werden de ramen bewust klein gehouden vanwege de warmte in de zomer. Het is binnen dan ook heerlijk koel. Insecten zijn er veel in een natuurgebied; dat is inherent aan de plek. Soms lastig voor wie er bang voor is, soms ook prachtig, vooral de grote verscheidenheid aan vlinders. We hopen van harte dat de familie Bain de week volgend op die bij ons een fijne tijd heeft doorgebracht.

Sono nata a Palermo, Sicilia e ora, da 15 anni vivo in uno dei posti più belli della Toscana, dove il paesaggio sembra un sogno del passato e dove la luce e gli odori talvolta ti portono via, dimenticando per un attimo la realtà.
In questo posto miraviglioso abbiamo, pietra per pietra, ridata vita al paesaggio rurale e alle vecchie casette che si trovano sparse per il terreno. Ora queste case ospitano tante persone che possono godersi le stesse bellezze.
Oltre l'agriturismo mi occupo di ceramica.
