My name is Lucia and I’ve been running the holiday farmhouse in Tuscany “Podere I Monti” for 15 years now. Having a villa in Tuscany was one of my husband’s dream and soon after became mine as well.
Where we are
I Monti Agriturismo is a Tuscany farmhouse, is located in Montieri, in Maremma countryside. It’s 500m above sea level. We are very near to Siena and Grosseto and the San Galgano Abbey as well.
Guests can visit our property of 78 hectares during their Farm stay in Tuscany and have many options: going for walks in the nature, hiking, looking for mushrooms and chestnuts in our reserved area, assist in the olive harvest, observe wildlife and endless starry skies at night, or relax in the large garden to watch a beautiful sunset.
Our fairy tale
The farmhouse “I Monti” had been abandoned for a long time and we decided to get engaged with the project of renovating it and now is one of the best villas in Tuscany countryside and holds our “agriturismo” and our brand new holiday apartments.
E’ stata un’esperienza totalmente nuova per me, ma l’obiettivo principale di vivere connessi con la natura e con i sapori e i profumi che le stagioni ci offrono è stato raggiunto.
We engage with our guests and involve them in our traditions and customs. We also like to show them the nearby unknown beauties such as Colline Metallifere, between Siena and the Tuscan Mediterranean Seaside.
This territory is mainly hilly, with a rich variety of mineral resources, hence the name, exploited since antiquity first by the Etruscan until the mid-19th century, during which quickly began running out.
My grandparents lived not far from the Podere I Monti farm house and I used to spend a lot of time with them learning about old traditions and I try to pass them on my guests if they wish.
