One of the reasons we chose this Podere for our stay in San Gimignano was because of the excellent reviews we read from this page. True enough, the place was how the others described it here. Podere Casanuova was a beautiful beautiful place. One could see an expansive view of the Tuscan Hills almost all around the compound. The gardens were very nice. There were several nooks where you could have a picnic, read a book, or merely sit and enjoy the air and the scenery.
We rented the Viridis Apartment. We had a nice view of the hills in all the windows of the house. One morning I woke up very early to catch the sunrise. The scenery from our bedroom window was like a painting. It was soo beautiful, almost enchanting. The apartment has 2 very spacious rooms, with 2 Toilets and Baths. We felt very comfortable in the apartment. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed for cooking, even down to the small things such as cooking oil, rice, herbs, etc (some were probably left by previous tenants). We ate almost all our dinners at the apartment for we would always look forward to going back after spending much of the day exploring San Gimignano and the nearby towns.
The compound was very accessible by car, from San Gimignano. It was only about a 5minute drive away (rough road, but we didn't mind it). There was free covered parking inside the compound.
Lucia was the perfect host. She was very charming and very helpful.
We had a great stay at the Podere Casanuova. It made our trip perfect. We are so looking forward to going back there again.
