Meet Antonio & Lucia, owners of Podere Pietreta
The owners of Podere Pietreta are a pair of ex-business managers that have gone into retirement and invested their life savings into realizing their dream: purchase and restructure a traditional Tuscan farm house. Living in a fully functional farm, or agriturismo, has always been a shared passion. Podere Pietreta is the result of their experience and the decor of the apartments shows their enthusiasm for Tuscany. A delicious treat can be found in the cantina (wine cellar) of Pietreta where a very special wine ages together with an excellent olive oil and wonderful organic jams. All of which proclaim a distinct love of the Siena countryside.
The best compliment they can receive: when their guests tell them "we feel at home here."
