We are about to enjoy our fourth visit to Podere Salicotto and feel as excited about it as our first time. The situation is superb, Sylvia and Paolo are kind hospitable people, and Salicotto is a credit to them. Nothing seems too much trouble - mention a perceived problem and within minutes a map/schedule/or instructions are flourished for decision making.
It is in a great central location in Tuscany with all major spots reachable in no time, and yet it still feels 'far from the madding crowd' when you get home at the end of the day. Actually we usually plan our day around 'brunch' at Salicotto and then go out exploring, eating out at one of the villages that surround Buonconvento or in Buonconvento itself.
We love it. Our family loves it. This is a wonderful place to stay.
