    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Dardano is a deceptively large house, full of atmosphere. It is a simple country home, basic even, but with an elemental charm. You drive up to the house with its ancient stone well and to one side there’s a little vine-covered area for shady outdoor eating. The garden is a neatly mown meadow with glorious views of the surrounding countryside, while the large outbuildings house a barbecue and give welcome shaded parking. A flight of steps leads to the front door and into the old farmhouse kitchen, which also takes a stab at doubling as a sitting room. The stone floor and old fireplace (with a medieval “spy hole” hidden in it) has authentic Tuscany stamped all over it. We couldn’t call the place smart; it isn’t! But it’ll charm you nevertheless with its comfortable bedrooms, ancient arched... more

We stayed at Dardano in July of 2012 and enjoyed a wonderful vacation!. Dardano is beautiful, and very comfortable for an extended family (there were 7 of us). It was a warm summer so we spent many happy afternoons in the beautiful pool while the house stayed very cool and comfortable. What makes Dardano so very special are the owners, Paolo and Carla. From the minute we arrived they treated us like returning family. Their welcome was warm, informative and most importantly involved an invitation to attend Paolo's birthday taking place the next day. Of course we went!, the food, location and people made the day very special. Carla and her mother in law, Stella also joined us for a cooking class later in the week where we had the opportunity to make some of the dishes we had enjoyed at the party. What a fun afternoon and what a feast we all created together. We can hardly wait to return, to spend more time at this beautiful home and to enjoy the company of such warm, wonderful owners. more
