    Il Podere is a finely restored traditional Tuscan farmhouse, surrounded by olive trees in a small valley just three kilometers from Arezzo where modern and ancient meet to create a unique, relaxing atmosphere.

“WOW” breakfast at Podere Fontanino
The day begins with a rich Tuscan buffet, including delicious seasonal dishes, homemade baked goods, and of course our local honey. Enjoy your breakfast on the veranda or out in the garden, as the weather suits you. Leave the preparations to us—you need only choose which dishes to enjoy.

Tuscan cooking school
Who better than our house chef to teach you? In a guided cooking lesson, he will combine theory and practice tailored to your skill level. At the end of the lesson, you will be the “star” of the evening as you present your results to your family and any other farmhouse guests who want to join the table. We will provide the 100% organic ingredients produced by our farm and other neighboring artisans. You will leave our land with the desire to experiment in your own home kitchen.

Yoga lessons
Take the opportunity during your stay to pamper yourself and recharge your batteries. Federica, our qualified yoga instructor, will guide you into a world where breathing, relaxation, and exercise find a perfect balance. In this Vinyasa-style class, mind and body find harmony through the use of breathing. Dynamic movement static asanas alternate to restore calm and focus from the outside in, allowing you to reconnect with your truest self.
This service is for overnight guests only and must be booked in advance (subject to availability).

E-Bike Tours
For a story to tell when you return home, book a tour on an electric bike and experience the hundreds of years of Tuscan history when black smoke rose between the hills. When the Arezzo-Fossato narrow gauge railway was inaugurated in 1886, it extended 133 km with 23 tunnels and 19 bridges. With our e-bikes, we will travel the small part that remains intact from Arezzo to Palazzo del Pero, including a few tunnels and several bridges that survived WWII. The journey lasts around 2 hours at a biking speed of 35-40 km/h, which is faster than the original train’s speed of 12-15 km/h!

To discover more of the countryside, follow the historic Path of Reclamation on an e-bike tour along the Canale Maestro della Chiana, which dates back to the 16th century. The route is flat but quite long (70 km). The tour begins by train; at the end of the line, we unload our bikes and pedal our way back via Chiusi lake between ancient orchards, Leopoldine houses, and medieval villages. Best experienced in the milder climate of spring. Cost and availability upon request; for overnight guests only.
