Comfortable vacation in Tuscany, including e-bikes
Retire to the wild Tuscan countryside to relax and reconnect deeply with nature in the neighborhood of the extinct volcano Amiata.
Experience a sustainable vacation within a uniquely beautiful estate, reaching the market, the pool, and sites of historical and natural interest with the provided e-bike. Spend a vacation in the Tuscan countryside at Podere Montale’s vast property!
Plan your vacation between wine tasting, winery visits, trips to the nearby medieval villages of Pienza, San Quirico d’Orcia, Torrenieri.
Experience a luxurious apartment, in the same farmhouse where the wine cellar for wine production is located. Benefit from the splendid view of the Valdorcia valley, enjoying the wonderful private outdoor spaces, with which the apartment is equipped!
The Wine Resort Podere Montale is a renovated ancient village, with several farmhouses used as agriturismo, the swimming pool, the restaurant, the Park of the Millenary Olive Trees.
Tuscany and in specific, the Maremma area, going up towards Montalcino is full of varied trails for cyclists of all ages and levels.
With the e-bikes provided with this package, you can venture along the trails mapped out on various apps and GPS.
For example, you can set out in the tracks of “Eroica”: a 209-kilometer bicycle touring route south of Siena, between the Val d’Arbia, the Crete Senesi and the Val D’Orcia, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. All in an easy way, following our tips and the many apps that track all the available routes.
A memorable stop, which we usually recommend to our guests, is a visit by e-bike to the nearby Giardino di Daniel Spoerri: a park with artist installations.
A vacation at the slow pace of biking and nature!
Upon arrival at Podere Montale, you will be greeted with a welcome drink for Wine Lovers: a glass of our red wine, made entirely by hand!
Following the Wine Lovers aperitif, we will give you the keys to a beautiful apartment adjacent to the Winery farmhouse, where we produce our wines. The apartment enjoys a dominant position over the Valdorcia and offers beautiful outdoor spaces, for private use, between terraces and gardens. You can enjoy the sunset at the end of your cycling days while sipping a glass of wine.
Thanks to the e-bike included in the apartment, you can easily move internally to the 200 acres of the estate to reach the restaurant, the pool, the riverbank, or the olive grove for your morning yoga session.
The Podere Montale estate comprises two main settlements in more than 200 hectares of natural, mostly wild land. Amidst the low vegetation of the Amiata nature, vineyards and millenary olive groves, we find the Winery settlement, with 5 apartments, terraces and private gardens; 1.2km away, on an internal dirt road we reach the Borgo: a lovely complex of 5 historic farmhouses in which we have created the agriturismo with rooms and the restaurant, the new swimming pool in a magnificent position overlooking the Valdorcia valley. Here, you will have the opportunity to spend days horseback riding around the property, trekking on the Amiata, dining at the in-house restaurant, practicing yoga in our park of thousand-year-old olive trees and many other wine tourism experiences.
We are in Italy, near the small town of Seggiano, in the province of Grosseto, Regione Toscana.
Just a 30-minute drive will take you to: Montalcino, for a visit to the Fortress and a taste of Rosso di Montalcino wine; Amiata: a dormant volcano characterized by panoramic views, trails and observation points; Bagni San Filippo, a hamlet of the municipality of Castiglione d’Orcia in the province of Siena, on the slopes of Monte Amiata where you can soak in the hot thermal waters; and Monte Labbro for long walks or horseback rides, surrounded by nature.
