foresteria

You are in the world of wine!

A place surrounded by greenery and tranquillity welcoming rooms equipped with every modern comfort 

A warm greeting from times past they are the secrets of a memorable stay: This is our promise!

 

The Foresteria, just 10 minutes from Montalcino, is nestled among olive groves and vineyards. Overlooking a southwest-facing valley, it was opened after two years of careful and researched restoration to preserve, promote and emphasize all of the architectural and structural aspects of the centuries-old “Podere Brizio”. During the restoration exclusive amenities were added for our guests, in the rooms and lounges, in addition to a wide range of sports facilities, including a tennis court, pool and wellness center, as well as a spacious garden in which to unwind and take unforgettable country walks to discover the local flora and fauna.

Every morning guests start the day with a breakfast that includes homemade cakes and the finest seasonal produce from the local area.

Lunch and dinner, available on request, are prepared according to traditional recipes, whisking you on a journey into forgotten flavors.

Staying at Podere Brizio is an authentic way to savor Tuscany, nestled among vineyards and olive groves, in a rustic but comfortable environment.

Dining

The original Bottaia of Podere Brizio is the perfect place to enjoy an abundant breakfast of homemade cakes and zero-mile produce, as well as other meals, prepared with local culinary expertise.

In the summer, dining moves outdoors to the scenic terrace with views of the valley and our tranquil olive groves and vineyards. With the exception of Sundays you can dine at the Foresteria, reserving a table the day or morning before, for a cost of € 35 per person for dinner and € 25 euro per person for lunch, drinks not included.

The three-course dinner, like the two-course lunch, feature traditional Tuscan dishes.

Anna and Vito’s cooking is always seasonal, showcasing the best the land has to offer at any time of the year, using local produce paired with a generous drizzle of exquisite Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and our fine Montalcino wines. The dishes will change according to the season, serving a different experience whenever you stay at Podere Brizio.

The informal yet professional service will turn your vacation into a memory that never fades over time.

Activities

A location immersed in the countryside is a strategic starting point to visit forests and vineyards, walk on soft and living soil and enjoy nature as completely as possible. Montalcino is only a 10-minute drive away and well worth a visit. We also highly recommend the small hamlets scattered in the hills, where farms alternate with farmhouses and the small bars of the province.

Small Wellness Centre

Occupying an old barn, our spa is very comfortable and functional. A jacuzzi, turkish bath, sauna, ice fountain, emotional showers and stream are features in our spa, where you can end the day with a herbal tea served in the breakfast area or in the lovely relaxing outdoor space surrounding the spa.

Pool

Your gaze will be lost in the valley while bathing in our 8x18m pool. Adjacent to the building and surrounded by the beautiful garden park of oak trees, the Podere Brizio pool is the perfect place to cool off on hot summer days in Montalcino.

TENNIS COURT

Tennis court

To the left of the homestead is a regulation size tennis court, reached by a short walk directly from your room. Illuminated for fun night games, the tennis court has artificial grass.
