Our 4th visit to Podere Cogno. That in itself should say it all. And we will go back again in the future. If you are looking for somewhere to get away from it all, to relax and recharge your batteries, then this is the place for you. And did I mention the stunning location on an olive farm, where they produce their own olive oil?
The place is comfortable and relaxed, where nothing is too much trouble for Marco and Giovana to make your stay memorable. Home cooked dinners at €27 for 4 courses (including the most stunning array of starters) have to be one of the few remaining bargains of the eurozone, and I can recommend the local wines, of which Marco has an excellent cellar (and applies very modest markups.)
Perhaps not the place to go if you are looking for an active nightlife or some sort of trendy "boutique" hotel, but if you just want to experience genuine Tuscan hospitality, then I don't think you can get better than Cogno. Plenty to do in the surrounding area - some lovely small towns and villages, and Siena and Florence are also easily within reach. A car is essential, but you'll want it to get around locally and further afield as well. We took all our grown up family a couple of years ago - they remain jealous that we went again without them this time!
