The beautiful holiday home Podere Paola is situated in the midst of the UNESCO Nature and Cultural Park of Val d'Orcia in southern Tuscany. Due to its panoramic position the farm offers a wonderful view into this breathtaking landscape and towards the small towns of Castiglion d'Orcia, Montepulciano und Pienza.
The farm is made of four comfortable flats furnished with rural furnitures typical in the Tuscan interior style The floor is made of cotto and the ceilings are very high with wooden beams. The flats were obtained from four different parts of the house: the old house, the lemon trees storeroom, the barn and the old tool shed. The farm was restaured according to the tradition, with cotto floors, wooden beams and dyed plasterwork.
The old stalls have now become a large living-room with a fireplace and dining tables and a well-equipped kitchen next door: an ideal place for meetings or family reunions to dine all together!
