“Charmer in the Tuscan Hills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We absolutely loved Podere Vignola! Rustic yet refined, quiet, scenic and comfortable. We stayed in the Giardino (2 BR, 2 new bathrooms). The whole apartment was bright and fresh upon arrival. Giardino looks out onto a picturesque stone courtyard and surrounding hills, from both the large master bedroom and the huge front door. Our apartment's stone walls were 2 feet thick so you heard no other guests (unless they were outside). Podere Vignola is a little tricky to get to, but no worries--the very accommodating English-speaking host GIovanni will meet you in town and lead you up the hillside the first time. It does require a rental car, but a short winding trip down the hillside and you're in the delightful little town of Sieci. Sieci has an easy-to-use train station so we parked there and took the train in and out of Florence every single day. The Sieci grocery store also had a few English-speaking employees, so stocking up on groceries was easy, too. Get your Brunello here! We would definitely return to Podere Vignola when in Florence again.
