The small complex of converted farm buildings is constructed and maintained to a high standard and well presented and clean on arrival. The rooms are spacious with all amenities including dishwasher, washing machine and air conditioning. The views of the classical Tuscan countryside of... More

This property is set in the most glorious Tuscan country side. The views from the garden (private garden with each Villa) was just stunning. Although there were a number of Villas on the site the private garden space gave a sense of privacy and enhanced the tranquility. The pool was of size and had plenty of sun loungers and shade....

Fantastic area, close to the wine districts and beautiful towns. The surroundings are breathtaking, exactly what Tuscany is supposed to be. Very nice and service minded owners and the house was just perfect.

First of all, let me state emphatically that this Villa is in a stunning location. Located on a ridge, surrounded by the Tuscan scenery, and with a nice little pool, one can not ask for more in terms of getting the feeling of La Dolce Vita. However, we had some issues. We had rented a three bedroom place (Villa Montisi)... More

We are most disappointed as we work very hard to make sure each customer is looked after however in this instance we must correct the issues raised as they are not fair. The accommodation is self catering so electricity and gas are charged as with most self catering homes. This we always detail at the time of booking on the... More

We travelled last july to tuscany which is our third holiday and stayed in podere ampella for the first time. (Note It was very very hot and air conditioning is a must to sleep at night) Thankfully we had air conditioning which is charged as an extra but worth every euro for a good nights sleep.

We had an amazing week in casa marta. As we were driving there, we turned a corner along the road somewhere after Sinalunga and the scenery took our breath away. Every hillside seemed to grow in beauty and our anticipation increased as we neared Podere Ampella and it more than met our expectations. That first evening, as we sat outside... More

Apartment was spacious, upholstered furniture in living room was worn, but everything else was in good shape; great well-equipped kitchen, beds were comfortable; linen was good quality. The view was lovely and the location quite central to the many interesting places in Tuscany, though a bit distant from the nearest village. Our concerns: Wifi was totally unreliable and we were...

We had a really fanstastic holidays in Tuscany in July/August (14 days) in Tuscany with Casa di Sotto at Podere Ampella being a part of it. The house is conveniently located (round 2 km to Montisi and 2 km to San Giovanni, 15 km to Montalcino) and guarantees privacy - there is generally no chance that other guests can see... More

Localization: not in turistic area, far from restaurants (closest 2,5km away), groceries (2,5km). Restaurants closed between 14:00-19:00 (majority). Beautiful surroungins and landscape, calm and peaceful area (don't expect wineyards, just hills and meadows). Beautiful night sky view. Apartments: detached houses, with very comfortable layout. Clean, spacious and comfortable, with access to shared pool (extremely cold water). Fully equipped kitchen, toilet,... More

We stayed in Casa di Mezzo. The villa was basic but comfortable with great views. The pool was nice but often crowded with young children. The location was good, in the middle of many main attractions in Tuscany though everything was at least a 30 minute drive. A few very good restaurants nearby in the smaller towns. Would recommend to... More
