Podere Cortennano

Podere Cortennano is located along the old gravel panoramic road to San Gimignano, it is a nice walk during the day with open views of the countryside and the towers. 

The property lies on the side of a hill within the municipal borders of San Gimignano. The little cluster of buildings is perfectly situated in the midst of the splendid Tuscan countryside, surrounded by olive orchards and vineyards for the production of fine oil of the highest quality and fragrance, and Vernaccia, the white wine praised by Redi in his Dithyrambic of Bacchus in Tuscany.

Podere Cortennano was restored respecting the different architectural and historical periods in which it was built, recovering and valorizing the structures, and highlighting the elements and portions that go back even as far as the Middle Ages.
 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL


Podere Cortennano is surrounded by a large park with secular Cypress trees where the guests may stroll through vast green areas abounding with plants, colourful flowerings and typical scents. To further relax in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, the guests may also enjoy a pergola with wrought iron tables and chairs and a large swimming-pool (16 x 8 meters). The swimming pool is at the top of the slope where all the villa is located; is open for our Guests with any restriction. It is amidst olive-oil trees, there is a boundless view of the area from there, in bright days you can also see the mountains 80 kms away. 

There are outdoor spaces in the common areas: sofas in the courtyard in front of the main entrance of the villa, tables and chairs under the pergola in front of the Restaurant (please note that during the three evenings a week when the Restaurant is open, this space is dedicated to the Restaurant guests), space by the swimming pool, table and chairs in the garden. 

For wine and food lovers, it is possible to dine in the garden or in the caves, from late April three evenings a week- on Saturday, Tuesday and Friday - by candlelight, with traditional Tuscan dishes and home- made recipes: our guest will feel at home, warmed by the best wines and extra-vergin olive oil from our own production.

The office is open to guests every morning between 9am and 12.30 p.m. and the owners are happy to give the guests any information they should need (directions, suggestions for places to visit, …).
