The hosts Sylvia and Paolo go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful, peaceful stay at their home. Nothing is too much for them. We had 4 magical days at Podere Salicotto, we went wine tasting (organised by Sylvia and Paolo, Paolo drove us there and back) at a local vineyard. It was perfect for us because we... More

First it is important to note that we have traveled extensively overseas and have had the pleasure of staying in a variety of country inns, bed and breakfasts, manor houses, and African camps. This then gives us a fair idea of what should be reasonably expected. The owners of Podere Salicotto are charming, and Silvia's guidance and reservations for dinners... More

Beautiful site and fantastic location. We have traveled enough to have certain expectations within certain price ranges - and we don't believe we received what we paid for. Little things - no tissues in the room or no soap/shampoo alternative (just something unattractively called "detergente". While the hosts were very helpful we had a sense that all was to accommodate... More

Each and every aspect of our stay at Podere Salicotto was outstanding. We enjoyed exquisite walks around the countryside. The proprietors, Silvia and Paolo, could not have been more accommodating, and I felt we could be lifelong friends by the end of our stay. We enjoyed a gourmet meal outside the second night, and I would highly encourage this if... More

Podere Salicotto is a truly magical place, I'm so glad it was recommended to us by my in-laws who had visited a few years prior. From the time of booking, Silvia and Paolo were incredibly accommodating. They took us on some beautiful and intimate wine tours through the Montalcino region; the wine was excellent and views were breathtaking. The inn... More

Our family of four had the wonderful opportunity of staying here for three days. Our first evening opened with a Tuscan dinner arranged by Sylvie. Then came the full moon over rolling Tuscan hills. It was too cold to swim, but the pool was beautiful and a good place to sit while making plans. The generosity and help we received... More

We stayed at Podere Salicotto for four nights in September 2014. I took a long time to decide upon somewhere for the middle part of our trip (sandwiched by a couple of nights in Florence and a night in Pisa), as I was looking for somewhere that offered beautiful scenery, nice accommodation and good access to nearby towns that we...

We can differently recommend a vacation at the wonderful pearl in Tuscany. We really enjoyed the hospitality, the beautiful scenery and the peacefulness, The owners Silvia & Paolo offers a lot of activities like wine tasting tours, hiking, biking etc. In addition they have their own wine cellar with plenty of wine from local wineries.
