At Podere Salicotto we don’t need pictures, you just have to open the window! With us you choose an experience in complete relax, enjoy splendid and panoramic views at the top of a hill, in a lovely country estate with only 7 bedrooms.
Podere Salicotto is in a strategic location and away from crowded places, 2 km from Buonconvento on a paved road, between Crete Senesi and Val d’Orcia, along the Via Francigena.
Podere Salicotto was love at first sight : Silvia and Paolo renovated it with the wish to share with their guests the slow travel experinece being nourished by an untouched beauty rolling off in every direction. We offer many quality services such as sweet and savory breakfast, homemade bread and cakes, honey and pecorino-cheeses from local producers, Tuscan ham and freshly prepared eggs. Coffee is special: wood roasted, air cooled. If you wish you can visit the roaster and enjoy a pairing with chocolate and pastries.
Take a dip in the panoramic salt-water infinity pool and relax on the solarium beds with a glass of good wine while your gaze wanders over the Tuscan hills and you are already feeling at home.
On the wine note: welcome to the land of Sangiovese grapes!
You have free access 24 / 24H to our cellar stocked with excellent local Red wines (Rosso) and Brunellos from small producers around Montalcino and a fridge with soft drinks and white wines. It's the honor system here at home: you help yourselves and pay upon departure. Paolo will be happy to introduce you to this stunning wine world during a tasting in the cellar.
The barbecue is equipped and available, you can store your groceries in the shared refrigerator and you have free access to the cupboard with crockery.
We offer hands-in-the-dough cooking classes in our private home, dinners altogether at sunset, hikes and bike rides (bike rental available) and much more.
