“Wonderful Two Weeks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed for two weeks in one of the villas near the tennis court. We are a family of 4, a teenager and a young girl, so it is hard to find holidays which suit everyone's interests. But this was fantastic. Tennis for the lad, plus lounging around the pool, and swimming for the girl. We also traveled around a bit and the location near the motorway is great for that. We self-catered easily and then had one meal in the restaurant as a treat. The meal was superb, simple and delicious. The villa was clean on arrival and we had clean towels and sheets after a week. Ruth and Thomas are incredibly helpful and the whole holiday was very easy. No hesitation recommending this place to friends and hope to be back ourselves soon.

We recently stayed with the very welcoming Ruth and Salvatore. We took a big apartment that was clean and spacious. Ruth and son Thomas were very accomodating and Salvatore' food was great.
It is a working farm but surprsingly it is very difficult to go on a decent walk due to fences and boundays.
The farm has a nice pool with stunning views. Pool life is complete with German tourists who seem to get up at an ungodly hour to claim all the best sun loungers for the whole day and then only actually visit the pool for an hour which they then completely dominate by habitual dive bombing.

We often go to Tuscany but it was our first time to that part. The towns are not pretty and it seems to be at the heart of a distribution district but a short drive and your in the lovely Chianti region, the A1 gives you excellent access to Florence and Pisa and the local town has a direct train to Rome which we made use of (The farm is in lovely countryside).
On the whole we had a great stay and our hosts were lovely.

Top tip - don't book your hire car with Auto Europe, they messed up our booking, were happy to leave us without car 11.30 at night at Pisa airport and were very unhelpful.

Room Tip: Go for the 1st floor big apartment, spacious with good views

Myself and my family stayed with Ruth, Salvatore & Thomas whom I will say went so far beyond customer service.... they did all of the little things that made this trip unforgettable! Our 2 young children had the freedom to play and were brought on trips around the farm to encounter all of the animals. We didn't rent a car which we thought might be a problem however Ruth and Thomas brought us into the city centre where we could catch a train to another city or they would ask us each morning if there was anything we might need and they would do our shopping for us. The evenings were exactly what a holiday should be - amazing food combined with such a relaxed atmosphere you really never wanted to leave. I would go back again without hesitation. It was the first holiday that I can say I actually took a step back and enjoyed everything that was there on offer. All I can say is Thank you so very much!

We had a lovely time and food was wonderful. Would defintely suggest taking the food package on offer, as good value and I think I would have struggled to cook in the heat (our apartment also didnt have a very big area to cook - this may be different in other accommodation so would check if thinking of doing lots of cooking). The pool area was very good, with plenty of sunloungers. We played tennis a couple of times, but as it was so hot we couldn't do quite as much as we would have done. Would have loved a tennis table for teenagers...maybe a suggestion.

Would recommend visiting Florence early on a Sunday morning as it was easy to park at Florence Train Station. We went again in the week and it was a little too busy and very hard to park. We also went to Sienna, which I would highly recommend - especially good late afternoon for an evening meal.

We had a very pleasant week at Podere San Lorenzo. Apartment was comfortable and clean, good TV with Sky that can be translated into English, so I could watch the Open live! Wifi was fine when working, it was down for two days but after talking to Ruth, she organised a man to fix it very quickly. Ruth, Salvatore and also Thomas were excellent hosts, nothing was a problem, always very friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful, make sure you ask for the Capaccio Estevo, a speciality of Salvatore and my son loved it. Pasta was awesome, as you would expect from Italy. A little unnerving at first not knowing what price you are paying for the food, but after gauging the prices at the first meal, I can assure you that their prices are very fair. Please also try their home made Chianti, which has just earned DOCG status. Overall a fabulous week, would love to go back sometime again.

We stayed with the family in Casa Anna for daughters wedding, Ruth provided a very valuable service, arranging the wedding ceromony, which I can highly recommend if you are planning a wedding. The accomodation was spacious, comfortable with beautifull views of the surrounding countryside. The hospitality of Ruth & Salvatore was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent

1st time in Tuscany, couldn't have found a better place to stay. Ruth & Salvatore very friendly & nothing too much trouble (don't think Ruth ever stops, was always rushing about & if you needed anything doing-it was done). Up in the hills away from it all but near enough to be able to go sight-seeing either by car or by train (station approx 10mins car drive away). Lots of places to visit or just chill out by the pool. Food & wine excellent. Freddy the German Shepherd always up for a walk if he sees you go. Friendlist GS I have ever met. We stayed in the 3 bedroomed apartment so had lovely views from the balconies. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, friendly atmosphere & good food this is the place to go.
