  • Overview

    Villa Podere Calcheto when you enter Tenuta Mocajo, an old farm in the Val di Cecina, you leave your everyday life behind; frenzy, responsibility and daily worries will seem to fall away as you drive along the road that leads into the original borgata and it will seem as though time has stood still; here you can admire the well preserved rural homes, the petrol pump, the little consecrated church and the manor house which is today, after elegant renovation, a hotel with seventeen rooms and a high-class restaurant. Another kilometre through open countryside, ploughed fields and green rolling hills will bring you to Podere Calcheto.

    The house is surrounded by a gravel yard and a green lawn on which majestic cypresses, elegant olives, oleanders, wild flowers and various species of Mediterranean plants grow. A pool with gazebo and a stone portico with large wooden tables and a barbecue will let you enjoy life to the full in total relaxation, privacy and liberty in this true Tuscan country home.

    Indoors, the clean lines, terracotta floors and finishing touches in wood are typical of the houses and area that is Calcheto. Spacious bedrooms with that simple comfortable elegance that fits the context; two sitting rooms and two kitchens in which you can enjoy a shared holiday but also have your own private space.

  • Villa Podere Calcheto Overview

    The villa is a single building consisting of two separate units with an independent, external access. Each unit has two floors connected by both internal and external stairs.

    UNIT 1: The ground floor in the left wing is composed by a dining room, kitchenette and pantry. From the dining room, a flight of stairs leads up to the first floor, where you come to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower which leads on to the sitting room with fireplace and satellite TV and to other two double bedrooms, one with divisible beds, with two adjacent bathrooms, one with shower and one with tub.

    UNIT 2: The ground floor in the right wing is composed by a dining room and kitchenette. From the dining room, a flight of stairs leads up to the first floor. On the first floor, there are a living room with fireplace and satellite TV, two double bedrooms with divisible beds and two adjacent bathrooms, one with shower (without windows), and another with tub and a dressing room, two double bedrooms sharing one bathroom. On the ground floor, with separate entrance and between the main entrances of the two units, is the laundry room.


    From the entrance gate to the property, a gravel track surrounding Podere Calcheto leads to the parking area and into the splendid 2000 sq m park which is partly manicured lawn with tall shady trees - cypresses, olives and oaks - surrounding the house and the covered outdoor dining area, located a few steps away, equipped with stone barbecue, tables and benches, perfect for dining and chatting.

    Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

    The rectangular pool is on the right of the entrance gate, 10 m from the house; it measures 12 x 6 m with the depth ranging from 0,90 to 2,06 m. and has internal lighting.

    The territory of the Val di Cecina offers natural and historical-cultural scenarios of great importance, walks through the woods and the countryside and exploration of beautiful little villages of timeless charm like Guardistallo, Miemo, Querceto, Casaglia and La Sassa with their great traditions, including food and wine; Montecatini Val di Cecina and its Museo delle Miniere (Museum of Mines) bears witness to the richness of resources that the subsoil has offered since ancient times such as copper, rock salt, alabaster and sulphurous fluids which are the indisputable protagonists; the majestic and imposing town of Volterra with its fortress, Roman theatre and the unique scenery of the crags, from Etruscan times to the Middle Ages with the mystery of the Knights Templar that envelops these lands, passing through San Gimignano and Montalcino to Siena, just to mention a few.
