We were a group of 7 family members traveling through Italy. This was by far the most impressive property we stayed at. The owners, Paolo & Carla were extremely helpful, generous and accommodating during our 4-night stay. The views and serenity of their Villas are most impressive. Next visit... no daily tours so we can relax and take in the... More

Podere la Valle deserves it's excellent reviews. We experienced a very warm welcome, superb breakfasts that lacked nothing (fresh fruit, freshly baked cakes, eggs cooked to order every day - Grazie Roberta!) and great service during our stay. One of the things that sets this place apart is the attention to detail, which is down to the owners Carla and... More

Podere la Valle is the perfect mix between Tuscan countryside and Florence attractions. Our family of five (2 adults, 3 children, ages 13, 10, 8) had just spent a week in Rome and were excited to continue our Italian vacation in beautiful Tuscany. Podere la Valle was exactly what we had hoped it would be - panoramic views of Florence,... More

Our stay in Podere la Valle was simply an amazing, out of this world experience. It is located on the hills overlooking florence among its wonderful olive trees and at the same time a few minute from the bus stop which is the best way of moving around the city. As a family of 4 the Margherita apartment (a room... More

Wow, what a place. We stayed in the Girasole apartment at Podere la Valle for 6 nights in June and it was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I had our own bedroom and our kids had 2 beds in the loft upstairs. Most days we would have a big lunch in Florence and then return to the apartment in the... More

Podere la Valle was the last stop on a 3 week trip cycling around Sardegna and Tuscany. We definitely saved the best for last - this was definitely the accomodation highlight of the 6 places we stayed (and all were great)!! The location is terrific - located in the hills to the northwest of Florence - you'd never know you... More

This is very nice apartment hotel situated in a hill above Florence. We got appartment number 2, which is big, has interesting position of bed in half-floor above sitting room and one separate bedroom. Breakfasts were great, hotel does not have dinner facility and you are responsible for room maintenance (I mean beds, trash disposal etc...). Final clean-up is done... More

A simple rule to follow. If you visit Tuscany, stay at Podere. What a beautiful and peaceful villa run in a true family atmosphere. The owners and staff at Podere looked after our every need from the moment we arrived until our departure. To Paolo, Carla, Tommaso and Roberta, a huge thank you from myself and my family.

Podere la Valle has everything that is necessary to make your stay more than pleasant! We were warmly welcomed by friendly Tommaso who made sure we left the car before collecting our luggage to see our beautifully decorated apartment. He was there for everything: entertaining us, teaching us a few words in Italian, recommending restaurants, greeting us at breafast, etc.... More
