Flats and Rooms

As part of the Project ‘Ospiti di Valore delle Terre di Siena’ we care about the environment, its beauty and traditions; we pay particular attention to energy saving and water conservation, our efforts are aimed at reducing the production of waste and at discouraging the use of disposable and polluting products.
Our inn is enveloped in a time without time, by the air, the sun, the silence and the panorama of the “crete senesi”. Our farm offers agricultural and bucolic activities, unique and extraordinary walks in the woods and through the meadows.
Podere Spedalone, an organic “agriturismo”, offers its guests large bedrooms, suites and apartments, carefully designed to respect its architecture of origin. The entire inn (together with its pool, wellness center and services), can be reserved for a group of friends or family (up to 30 persons).

 

We offer the following accommodations:

15 rooms – all with en-suite bathroom (hairdryers included), most with ceiling fans and queen-sized beds that can be divided into separate single beds (one room has two separate single beds, and one room has one single bed). These rooms include:

1 apartment with 3 bedrooms for 6 people, with cozy living room and ancient Tuscan fireplace

1 apartment with 3 bedrooms for 5 people, with kitchen and spacious living area with ancient Tuscan fireplace

1 apartment for 4 people, with kitchen and spacious living area

2 large suites for disabled persons, including separate sleeping area for a helper.
All rooms have central floor heating and heated towel racks in the bathrooms; some rooms have small Danish wood-burning stoves.

Also at the disposal of our guests are:

Outdoor pool immersed in the olive grove (pool towels included)

Fitness center with Turkish bath and Jacuzzi (each able to accommodate 6 people)

Indoor and outdoor relaxation areas

Two large terraces with gazebo, suitable for group yoga sessions and other activities

“Limonaia” (large conservatory for housing the potted lemon trees in winter) with large Tuscan fireplace

Library

Freeinternet access

 

During your holidays, besides our b&b service, you can dine in the inn by reservation (half pension). You will be able to taste organic products of our farm, and to take our cooking classes where you will learn to make simple, genuine traditional Sienese and Tuscan dishes.

Breakfast and dinner (dinner is by reservation) are served around the large wooden table in the large dining room with its typical Tuscan fireplace.

The kitchen, which can be seen from the dining room through a glass wall, adjoins the large ancient wood burning stove which is still in perfect working condition.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

“Jogging for the soul”: Our guests who have already spent time at Spedalone describe it as a place where the air is somehow magical; breathing it brings a sense of wellbeing, optimism, lightness, good spirits and a generally positive outlook on life.

Podere Spedalone seems to have an energy that rejuvenates the soul.

The explanation for this magical characteristic probably dates back to the 800s when Spedalone became a place where pilgrims came to restore their spirits on their way to Rome. In ancient times structures were situated for strategic reasons related to natural phenomena. Nothing was built at random; the choice of location was based on careful study and research. Science today is still unable to explain the benefits that certain places instill in people, but Podere Spedalone is incontrovertible proof of this phenomenon.

 

MEALS

We offer traditional Tuscan meals, with some variations… depending on the “farmer’s” inspiration, creativity and fancy.

Friends of the farmer, both Italian and foreign, frequently stop in for dinner. You may well find yourself in the company of painters, hunters, poets, carpenters, musicians, archeologists, lawyers and other farmers, telling their life stories and adding a touch of familiarity and spontaneity to the dinner.

Depending on the season, you may find wild asparagus, mushrooms, truffles, olives, eggs, plums, figs, calendula and other medicinal plants, and various greens during your walks through Spedalone…. And, you may find them served for dinner.

 

Spedalone marries past and present…
The past: the windows that open out onto the ever changing scenery of Spedalone, like frames of living paintings; ancient entrances; antique bolts on their original doors; wood burning stoves, rooms decorated with wooden furniture, floors with original terracotta tiles – all this will transport you to a time beyond memory.
The present: the rooms that are all equipped with modern comforts to accommodate the most exigent of guests — silent overhead fans for the summer, central floor heating for the winter, heated towel racks.

Due to the extreme tranquility and silence of the place. Spedalone in fact, has no game rooms, televisions, internet, ping pong or foozeball.

We are open year round. .
