Visiting Podere Erica provides a unique opportunity to experience the best that
Tuscany has to offer.  Situated on over 30 acres with grape vines, olive trees,
pastures and woodland, Podere Erica ensures total privacy with sweeping views
over the countryside.  
The beautifully restored stone
country house is located in Chianti
half-way between Florence and
Siena.  Shortly after exiting the
Superstrada, you will find this quiet,
tranquil and private spot.  And yet, it
is walking distance to the charming
village of San Donato in Poggio
where you will find a deli, coffee bar,
small market, pharmacy, bancomat
(ATM), restaurants and other shops.
You can relax and settle into a different rhythm here under the wisteria-covered
pergola or on the covered loggia or by the beautiful swimming pool which is
surrounded by flower-filled antique orci.  Or take a hike in the woods, challenge
someone to a game of bocce ball or visit a near-by winery.
It is an excellent base for excursions to the quaint villages in Chianti – Greve, Panzano,
Castellina and Radda.  Famous medieval cities of Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, and
Florence are easy day trips.
Close to many important locations in Tuscany:  
San Donato in Poggio       5 minutes            Castellina In Chianti   15 minutes    
Florence                          25 minutes           Greve in Chianti          25 minutes       
Siena                               30 minutes           San Gimignano           30 minutes   
It's not just a rental. . . .               
It's an Experience!

Imagine making your own favorite
Italian meal in your own Italian
kitchen and eating it on the terrace
as you watch the sunset over the
countryside.   Perfetto!
If you listen carefully you
can hear the cuckoo.  And
not a mechanical one. This
one pays no heed to the
Podere Erica
The Perfect Vacation in Chianti.......
