Podere Felceto is a family business, born from the dream of owner Roberto Del Mastio and wish to return to his roots. Roberto has lived his childhood in the Chianti countryside, near Tavarnelle, in his grandparents’ house, where he lived experiences still alive in his own memories.
After a long stay in Florence and after several trips abroad to work, he heard the call and the desire to return to live in the countryside of his childhood. The encounter with wife Jussara, of Brazilian origin, who was studying in Florence to become an art critic, has given birth, in addition to two daughters, Yara and Sara, to the project of a farm based on a shared goal.
After years of research Roberto and Jussara, in 1998, did finally found the ideal place to grow their family and realize their dream. Throughout the years Podere Felceto was restructured with care to retain the atmosphere and the typical characteristics of Tuscan farmhouses, without neglecting the need for a comfortable stay.
