Two of southern Tuscany's finest gems are located within 15 minutes of the villa - Pienza and Montepulciano. Few spots are more rewarding than sitting al fresco at the La Posta bar opposite the Pienza Cathedral watching the world go by, happily feeling a million miles from home. Podere Caterina is set in its own 64 acres estate made up of olive groves, woodland, open fields with wildflowers in spring and early summer.
Surrounding the house are exceptional landscaped gardens, which lead down to a heated saline pool (12 x 6m) looking out over Mount Amiata. The pool area, with Travertine stone paving is completed with teak sun loungers, large parasols and plenty of space for badminton and table tennis. Other significant areas include two large courtyards, both with tables and chairs. Interiors are presented beautifully with hand-made terracotta tiled floors and pale-washed chestnut beamed ceilings. There is an ingenious underfloor heating and cooling system for comfort throughout the year. Bedrooms are all equipped with ceiling fans.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
