Your holiday home in Chianti
An authentic farmhouse for your Chianti holidays
Podere Fontediaccia is an ancient farmhouse located around 600 meters from the historic village of Mensanello, walking towards the vineyards of the estate that lie beside the renowned Francigena Way. Its secluded location makes it particularly quiet, ideal if you’re looking for a private holiday home in Chianti which is still very close to the wonderful city of Siena and from hamlets such as Monteriggioni and Colle Val d’Elsa.
If you choose to stay in one of its four apartments you will also have access to the swimming pool dedicated solely to the farmhouse guests, surrounded by vineyards. Speaking of which: did you know that Podere Fontediaccia takes its name from them? “Fontediaccia” is in fact a vine variety and one of the red wines we produce at Tenuta di Mensanello.
If you wish to spend your holiday in Tuscany immersed in nature, experiencing real country life first-hand, our apartments in the farmhouse are waiting for you. Or maybe you’re looking for the perfect venue for a family reunion, or to host your witnesses and relatives on the occasion of your destination wedding?
