My boyfriend and I joined my parents in Castellina in Chianti for a week during their 3+ week excursion to Italy in celebration of my mom's 50th birthday. Staying at Poderi Val Verde with Ulrike as our host was the cherry on top of the sundae that was this wonderful trip. The property itself is beautiful; an authentic working farm... More

My husband and I visited this beautiful working farm in the countryside and I could not have been more pleased with his choice. I especially enjoyed the many animals that shared the grounds. The peacock and the sheep, chickens, etc. Our host has a working knowledge of herbs and as part of our cooking lesson we went and gathered some... More

This is the place to go if you want to experience the lifestyle of a local resident that lives on a working farm in a spectacular setting . If you want a conceirge and personal sommelier, stay at any 5 star in Florence and enjoy. The location, about a mile north of the center of Castellina in Chianti is ideal.... More

It was well equipped for what we wanted. Our hostess was so informative about the area and was so helpful to get us... More

What a wonderful experience, on a Tuscan farm near the small town of Castellina in Chianti. Our hostess Ulrika welcomed us, and was full of information about the entire region. She helped us acquire transportation, (this place is rural and you need a car to visit all the wonderful small towns in Tuscany ) no public transport. We were fortunate... More

8 of us from a small town in the US stayed for a week and loved every minute of the atmosphere. So relaxing and authentic. We had breakfast served to us every morning at the main farm and dinner a couple of nights.. The cooking class was great. Can't wait to fix the dinner at home. The 300 year old... More

For our first time to Italy and with our group of friends, 4 couples total, we wanted and found an authentic Tuscan villa to be our home away from home. When we arrived we found the house and the grounds as beautiful as imagined. It is what you could imagine a working Tuscan farm to be like, a large vegetable... More

My husband and I stayed in "Il Rifugio" for 5 nights as part of an Italian vacation. The location of the villa was perfect for traveling throughout the region. We easily made day trips to Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Montepulciano. The Chianti region itself was beautiful and Ulrike was incredibly knowledgable about restaurants and vineyards in the area! Our... More

For our 30th anniversary, we decided to rent Casa Pineda within Poderi Val Verde's verdant grounds. Our plan was to have 3 other couples stay for a week in one of the 4 bedrooms, with our dearest friends coming and going each week. Each bedroom was different and we had fun picking out which room best suited each couple. Each... More
