Our farm house is very small but, if you wish to find the atmosphere of an old countryside cottage in Tuscany, visit us…

the panorama is beautiful and we can offer you a rare commodity…. Silence. Come and visit the farm “Podere Le Pialle” near Florence: what awaits you is a warm and honest welcome that will make you feel immediately at home. You can lodge in renovated rooms or apartments equipped with all comfort and if you wish, you can also eat typical tuscan food in our restaurant. In our farm house you can relax in the very new outside swimming pool or you can visit our horses and the countryside all around us.
Free Wi-Fi for our guests.

Enjoy your holiday

Sunbathing by the pool

Taste the real Italian family kitchen

Discover the Tuscan countryside


At Podere le Pialle if you want ,you can do a lot of things:
excursions in the art cities of Tuscany, but also discover the small towns rich in history and charm minors only in size!
Or  go for fantastic hiking trails on the trail paths of Alpine Italian Club.
But perhaps you will find that the most ‘beautiful’ thing to do is just stand here in pure relaxation.


Here is an activity that accords with young and old  people.
There’s nothing more relaxing of doing nothing… and a swim  in the
salt water pool with a beautiful landscape around, is something that give you happiness.

invito a pranzos

We propose the dishes of our family tradition and what guests eat
is also what we eat.
Our family has a mission: we like to welcome our guests with  warm hospitality and share  with them our organic kitchen garden harvest.


This is  our wish for you: it’s easy to say Tuscany.
But just walk a few kilometers to discover different landscapes, traditions, customs and different recipes. And that ‘s the beauty of our Tuscany! We invite you to discover our beautiful land.

Il panorama e’ bellissimo e possiamo offrirti una cosa rara: il silenzio. Al Podere Le Pialle troverai  un’accoglienza calorosa e schietta. Ti aspettiamo!   Franco e Gabriella

We decided to be an organic country farmhouse: taste our organic extra vergine olive oil and our organic honey!

We like to share with our guests this way of life.

Respect for the environment, sustainability.
Here at Podere le Pialle we are very careful to respect the environment and the nature that surrounds us. In these years, step by step, we have tried to adopt ecologically responsible behaviors: To warm up in the winter season we have equipped ourselves with a heating system with biomass boiler. The electrical energy of the entire Podere le Pialle is supplied by a photovoltaic system. We are also very careful to recycle as much as possible, to collect household waste in a different way and not to waste the resources at our disposal, in the hope of being able to preserve our world in the best way possible for us and our children. We are sure that our customers will have the same sensitivity as ours. Gabriella and Franco

A small premise not to disappoint your expectations:
we know how important it is to choose your desired long-awaited holiday, and for this reason, we believe it is correct to tell you what we can and can not offer our customers. We are a family that offers hospitality in our farm, we are nature lovers and we are happy to share with our guests experiences and passions, advice, but we are not a hotel: we will not find staff in uniform, impeccable English lawns or breakfast service in your room, you will not find air-conditioned rooms with powerful air conditioning systems. You will find typical environments, kept with passion, respecting Tuscan tradition and culture. We are in the open countryside between hills and woods, otherwise we would be an organic farm? To get to us it is necessary to drive along a narrow and winding road of 1km and 700 meters, which although paved almost entirely, and completely passable with any type of car and driving license, can ‘be a little tricky. It’s just the first impression, trust us! Already the second time you will travel it, it will seem much easier. Do not be impressed. If all this did not change your mind, then you’re in the right place! We are waiting for you to welcome you and welcome you to Podere le Pialle.
