One thing to do around Castellina Chianti with young children or teenagers is archery. Poderi Val Verde 3D archery range can accommodate up to 3 kids within the same hour (however, two is most ideal). Fabian, the instructor, was great with my 7 year old daughter and 10 year old niece. The girls immensely enjoyed the one hour lessons and... More

We had an amazing experience cooking and meeting new friends. We opted for the extended day class and are very glad we did. After venturing to the locals' market, which in itself was very fun, the rest of the day was spent on the farm. My husband, teenage daughter and I learned a lot about making simple, delicious, mouth watering... More

Ponderi Val Verdi is a rustic B&B in the heart of the Chianti district. There were 7 of us staying in Casa Pineta. Each of the 4 bedrooms has its own bathroom. The common area of the kitchen and living room are well appointed and spacious. Outside there were 2 separate balconies over looking the lovely valley. The facilities are... More

I stayed with my (now Finance), her parents, sister, and friend in a 2 bedroom cottage for a week in June. Our trip had taken a turn for the worse when we arrived in Rome the previous day and Ulrike and Fabian took us in like we were family to turn our vacation around! I was able to propose during...

My husband and I spent a week at poderi val verde, again. Our first trip was in 2007 for our honeymoon and we have now returned again 8 years later, with another couple. The beauty and comfort of poderi val verde, mixed with the hospitality of Urike and the beauty of Tuscany make for a perfect vacation. Urike's cooking is... More

My husband and I spent a week at Poderi Val Verde with another couple in a 2-bedroom; 1 bath cottage. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. It was clean, and the beds were the most comfortable that I've slept on in Europe. The rustic accommodations make you feel like you are in old Tuscany.... More

Poderi Val Verde s an idyllic Tuscan property - can't imagine a better place to stay! I wanted to pinch myself the whole time we were there! What a paradise. Ulrike and her son Fabian are lovely, welcoming people and the property is breathtaking. We loved all the animals on the property (especially Robbie the peacock!!). We took dips in... More

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
