We loved the beautiful surroundings, seclusion and quiet. The owner and her son were fabulous and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. This is the perfect location to visit all of the surrounding towns in the Chianti area. We will definitely be back to... More

After a week of busy tourist sites, Staying at Ulrikes villas deep in the Tuscan hills was a great relief. Each villa has its own private outdoor dining space, and barbecue, which is a must to cook the excellent meat from the local farmers market. Ulrike rewards the adventurous, go round for her dinner and she will bring out six... More

Run by a really nice German lady named Ulrike; we made a three-course meal in her home. If we were to do Chianti again, we probably would have liked to stay in this B & B because there was a lot more that was offered than the one we were at. Ulrike taught us to make a bread salad, pasta... More

My wife and I visited Ulrike at her great agri-tourism farm for 7 days in mid October. We stayed in the La Bellavista apartment and it offered a great rustic taste of Tuscany with every amenity you could hope for. An efficient kitchen, comfortable bedroom, spacious living area, excellent bathroom with large shower and a very nice private terrace. On... More

This lovely farm is an ideal place to serve as home base during a trip to the hill towns of Tuscany. It is close enough to Florence to drive there to spend a whole or half day to see the sights and shop, only to return to the countryside for a relaxing evening. Ulrike, the proprietor, provided us with helpful... More

The lovely setting, homey lodging, warm hospitality and central location made this a "trip of a lifetime" for our family reunion in Tuscany. Set in a quiet valley just a few kilometers from the charming village of Castellina in Chianti, this working farm was the perfect home-away-from-home to explore the delights of Tuscany. Centrally located between Florence and Siena, it... More

Our family spent a wonderful two weeks in the Casa Pineta at Poderi Val Verde, which very comfortably accommodated 8 adults. We had access to a swimming pool, grill, patios, and the gorgeous hills and hiking trails around the property. In addition to a delicious four course welcome dinner, Ulrike provided a wealth of information about the area, and advice... More

Our family visited Tuscany in July 2014 and stayed here for a week. The setting was marvelous. Our kids enjoyed the pool, animals and visiting with the other families. The location was perfect for day trips to Firenze, Pisa, Sienna and the other towns. We enjoyed meeting the other families and sharing our experiences with them. Ulrike is a wonderful... More
