My family and I spent a week in the 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage for a week. What an amazing place!!! A quaint and charming place with a Tuscany feel and look but with all the modern amenities! Our cottage had a wonderful kitchen to prepare our meals, two full bathrooms and very comfortable beds!! We woke to goats walking... More

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

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
