THE PODERE CASINO
In the heart of Tuscany lies the Podere Casino - a dreamily quiet spot on earth - where you can relax and leave everyday stress behind you!
Almost 3 decades ago Erwin Neumeyer came to Tuscany and immediately fell in love with this beautiful property on a hill surrounded by gentle hills and oak and chestnut forests. A place of peace, far away from any traffic noise, where wild boar and porcupine say good night to each other, where glowworms and stars shine at night, one brighter than the other.
Step by step and with great attention to detail, Erwin has renovated and extended the Podere Casino, always careful to preserve the rustic charm of the Tuscany houses. As a passionate host and cook, he made sure that our guests would spend unforgettable holidays here.
We want to continue this tradition. Whether you are a Tuscany fan or casual visitor, sun worshipper or sports fanatic, wine connoisseur or gourmet - we will ensure your extraordinary holiday experience at Podere Casino.
Your hosts Janine Neumeyer & Ziggy Numann
