We where there 3 days in June and we loved it. The whole complex was in great shape and the room was superb. The road from Rome to there was long but it was worth it.
Unfortunately the weather was cold but we'll return :)

- Villa Podernovo is a former 18th century farmhouse which has been converted into a charming villa rental with pool and a wedding villa.We are located just south of Siena and north of the Maremma in an area less celebrated than the Chianti or the Val d’Orcia, quite rugged and still authentic, with hilltop medieval hamlets to discover, relaxing panoramas and delightful winding roads.The highlights of our area are San Galgano Abbey and Montesiepi Chapel with the 'Sword in the rock', two architectural marvels and also unique wedding venues.They are both only 7Km away to its proximity Villa Podernovo is the ideal venue for wedding celebrations.THE VILLAThe villa rental is ideal for groups, workshops and weddings.The villa consists of two close by buildings: 'Capanna' (the daytime building) and 'Casolare' (the accommodation building) which can accommodate up to 18 people. Both buildings are surrounded by large tended lawns and private woodland with oaks and chestnut trees. The south-facing chlorine-free pool with hammocks and decks is the perfect place to relax on hot summer days.The villa is tucked away from the village yet it is not isolated. The village is only 5 minutes on foot along an oak tree-lined easy trail and has all necessary facilities such as a small supermarket, a traditional Tuscan restaurant, bar, wine bar, pub, newsagent/tobacconist, the Post office, a pharmacy and medical services.The villa interiors retain the original Tuscan terracotta floors, the chestnut beam ceilings and are decorated in soothing colors.
