Podere Invidia

‘Invidia’ is famous for its envious panoramic and unspoiled view. 

The holy Saint Beate Pietro was born on this spot in 1410. In the region, his name carries on. Every year he is honoured in a local ceremony and a wine-estate carries his name. 

After being deserted for half a century, the owners discovered the farmhouse overgrown with trees. They strongly believed the ruin on this magnificent spot deserved a new life. It took 7 years of renovations, hard labour and determination to create a modern, “saint-like” atmosphere that brings the urban soul back to nature. At Invidia, it’s quintessential slow-living.

The space

As you walk in, you enter the hall which leads to a large fully equipped kitchen, with dining area and fireplace. The kitchen is surrounded by windows on all sides. The hall also gives access to the former stables which have now been transformed in to a spacious relaxed living area with fireplace. On one side this leads to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, on the other side it leads to the table tennis area and beautiful double doors to the garden and pool area.

In the former stables you also find a staircase upstairs where you will find a further 6 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms as well as the loggia. The loggia is a relaxed open-air living room with fireplace and stunning views over the Tuscan countryside.

The open courtyard gives access to a covered terrace and dining area with stunning views. This leads to the pool area, set in a lush garden, surrounded by olive and fruit trees and plenty of space for sunbathing. The large infinity pool overlooks the rolling foothills of Tuscany.

On the west side of the farmhouse you find “the sunset terrace”, a covered terrace with relaxing sofas and armchairs where you can enjoy a nice appetitive and spectacular sunsets. 

Location

The Podere (former farm) is located near the historical village of Trequanda. A village yet unknown to tourism, hosting the best local suppliers of Tuscan food.
