#1 of 4 hotels in Certaldo
The construction rises on a hill, from here we can enjoy a splendid view on those nearby valleys. The house has been recently restaured and divided into 5 apartments and 5 rooms. Apartments and rooms look out on the garden, where we can admire different varieties of plants and flowers. On the surrounding space, you can find many relax areas, such as the characteristic "Concimaia", a very panoramic place endowed with pavilion, table, chairs and a romantic swing. In the west, close to the construction, we can find a little natural lake, habitat of ducks and frogs, whose croaking amplifies the feeling of close contact with nature. For nature and good form's lovers, Podere Benintendi offers the opportunity of walking and training in the open air. The structure is endowed with a very big swimmingpool (4,5x17 m). Guests can enter into the pool through a roman flight of steps that dips softly into the water. Here you can spend pleasant instants steeped in relax and welfare. Close to the pool, under the wonderful terrace made up of stones, is the characteristic "Enoteca" in rustic style, where you can buy oil of our production. Adjoining to the Entoteca, you can find the gymnasium, that guests can use free.

This was one of my favorite accommodations in my Tuscany trip because it was so unique! It’s located close to Certaldo a medieval hamlet in the heart of the Val d’Elsa which is incredibly charming and worth spending a few hours in. It is also where the famous Italian writer Boccaccio (author of Decameron) was born. Bocaccio was a great fan of Dante Alighieri, and our room in Podere Benintendi was inspired after Dante! Some of his books were displayed as well as a drawing of his unequivocal face profile on one of the walls and a quote from Dante’s Paradiso on the other. The room has unique pieces of decoration such as an amazing chair-nigh-table-and-lamp piece of furniture. When I woke up here and peeked through the window and couldn’t believe my eyes! Podere Benintendi is located at the top of a hill and in that foggy morning, we were sitting above the clouds. The view was unbelievable and I felt so blessed of having been able to experience it. After documenting that enchanting morning through photos and videos, we went to the lobby for breakfast which was extremely complete with lots of home made delicacies and many options to choose from. We then spent the morning exploring the estate as there is a lake, an aromatic herb garden, and nice quaint corners with sculptures or fun details spread allover. There’s also a pool, a gym, a billiard room and a shop where they sell their self branded wine, limoncello, marmalade and olive oil at very competitive prices.

We were recommended to stay here from friends and it did not disappoint. Exceptional value. Lovely clean rooms, beautiful breakfast and dinners and a lovely pool area. It’s also close to the must see Old Certaldo and a short drive to the train. A lovely family business.

Beautiful and clean place in the heart of Toscana. The location is advantageous because you are very close to places like S.Gimignano, Firenze, Siena, Motepulciano, Montalcino etc. The family who owns this place is very friendly. The breakfast buffet is very nice and rich. There is a pool and even a gym. Ther is a shared kitchen if you want to cook/prepare your own dinner. The area is very peaceful. Especially the evenings are very calm and quiet, which creates a nice escape from the rush of everyday living.

I visited podere benintendi in June for a whole week. We only wished we could stay longer. The accommodation is very well kept with beautiful gardens all around. We enjoyed visiting the towns nearby. The owners are so nice and welcoming. We also had a chance to have dinner and food was divine. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday, with beautiful surroundings and an outstanding property with all amenities you can require.
