If you are familiar with the book by Frances Mayes “Under the Tuscan Sun”, Simonetta story will not be unfamiliar to you. With a strength that comes more from will than from muscle, she managed to transform a dilapidated farm, a ruin basically, into the little paradise you can find here today. It is a women’s story; together with her now grown up daughter and her mother, Simonetta runs everything at Podere Bello. To undertake a restoration project of this size requires utter foolishness or a visionary. In this case it was certainly the later.
However, Podere Bello is and always will be growing together with the needs and wishes of its guests. You are the inspiration for all future developments and changes. It is your input that will truly create your home in Italy.
