Podere Scatological is a country villa set on an olive farm. My room was a good size and clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom had an excellent shower, toilet, bidet, sink, and thick luxurious towels. I did have to ask for drinking water and a glass; as well - little shampoos etc. were not supplied. (no big deal) There was an efficient air conditioner which I did use, as an open window eventually meant a couple of mosquitoes buzzing in my ear. I had an excellent sleep in a serene location.
Breakfast included a variety of pastries, sliced meats, cheeses, whole fresh fruit, yoghourt and cereals. Cappuccino was nicely prepared and service was kind. I ate my breakfast on the patio, overlooking the pool most days - gazing at the olive trees and beautiful countryside. I also ate indoors in the lovely sitting/dining room one day.
This is a great place to stay and my only complaint would be the lack of an area to get or consume a beverage in the evening. The villa is about 2 km from access to food etc. and so if you are hungry, or thirsty for more than water, .you need to plan ahead. I can suggest walking down the hill to Signa and directly across from the train station is Enrico's Restaurant. Be patient and you will have the best pasta of your life! There is also a gelato shop close to Enrico's that will not disappoint. I stayed at Podere Scarabattoli and rode a bike along the river trail to Firenze everyday. I also took the train once or twice and walked up to the villa.
I would stay here again, but ensure I planned for the lack of food and beverage availability a little better next time.
