Having booked Podere Salicotto way back on Boxing Day last year, our expectations for a summer holiday week were high. They were met and exceeded a million times over!
Podere Salicotto is beautiful. It's location for touring southern Tuscany is perfect. It's setting and views are amazing: it reinvigorates the mind and soul. The accommodation is clean, spacious and like home. The swimming pool is the best I've ever swum in or sat out at.
Silvia and Paolo are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they strike the perfect balance between helping and advising you; and giving you space to enjoy their beautiful property.
We did the cooking class: it was brilliant. Such fun. Nicola, the chef who took the course, was a joy and his jams which we tasted with the cheeses in the morning were amazing.
Podere Salicotto is one in a million. Silvia and Paolo are special people and it was a pleasure to meet them. Thank you: we will be back next year. (If you're reading this Silvia and wondering who it's from the clue is in the words higgeldy piggeldy! Hope you've had occasion to use them. Do let us know what you think of The Angels Share!)
