Podere il Pino is located in a picturesque area, in the countryside. Quite difficult to get there due to the gravel road but it’s really worth the pain. The grounds are well maintained and the pool is big and clean, even if there are many people in the complex, you don’t get the feeling that it’s crowded. The apartments are big and nicely decorated, recommend those facing the pool as the villa next to them has loud music playing until 10-11 pm, at least this happened when we stayed there. As an improvement I recommend a proper cleaning of the shower area which really needs a brush and chlorine. Other than this inconvenience, we enjoyed being in this place.

Actually we are not completely satisfied with the accommodation, we stayed in apartment at the first floor and the commodities were not fully available, some electricity stuff were missed and sockets didn’t work. Location itself is beautiful as the staff as well, but in this spring we found some criticity. Nevertheless I think with the start of the season everything will improve. Very quite and relaxing

Lovely place to stay, right in the middle of the nature - it was amazing in one evening when we met on the way to go back a porcupine and some deers. Also, it is very close to San Gimignano (10 kms tops), supermarket ot highway to Florence and Siena (few kms as well). The accommodation is great, well equipped and clean. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and didn't feel we were missing anything. On top of everything, the hosts were great and responsive, so I really recommend this for a true Tuscany feeling.

We stayed here for one week for to celebrate our daughters wedding. From the day we did the booking until the week we stayed there the service was excellent. We had great service and help from the staff and specially the manager Matteo who helped us with all the preparations for the wedding and also to contact the catering company for to book the dinner, we didn't have to do a thing. It is the most beautiful and romantic place I've ever visit, the apartments were clean and spacious, nice poolarea and beautiful surroundings on top of a hill in Tuscany with a stunning view. Will definitely go back. Thanks Matteo with staff for a lovely week.

A beautiful rustic Firenze villa situated on the Chianti hills away from the hustle and bustle of a city atmosphere. Approximately an hour away from Firenze.Very good host who drove in immediately to meet us as we had reached after hours. Our villa was surrounded by lavendar bushes, olive trees and of course the vineyard itself. On our arrival, we were welcomed with a bottle of vine from their own vineyard. Staffs are amazing. We had the pleasure during our stay to attend one of their specially arranged dinners....was just amazing! Only advise is to make prior arrangement for a pick up to get to this place as it is hidden away in the hills. One has the choice of getting Podere to pick you up if you are from the Firenze Central Station.....for a fee of approximately Euro130. One also has the option of taking a train From Firenze to the Poggibonsi station where you can be picked up and it would cost much lesser. If you are not driving like us, we arranged private tours to pick us up to do day tours to wherever we wanted to go to. As shops are distant, get your groceries etc before you arrive here......Pam supermarket is about 5-6km away Podere. Overall, an amazing stay..

Fantastic place in Chianti region. We were group of 16 people so the organisation of the trip was not easy sometimes but Podere Il Pino staff was more than helpful and willing to solve anything we needed (special thanks to Karen). The property itself is wonderful. Amazing views on Chianti region, great swimming pool, very nicely and practically equipped apartments, big barbecue area that we used for dinners together.

We arrived after a 4 hour drive from Rome at sunset and were surprised at how long the drive to get there from Poggibonsi was! By the time we got there and collected our keys from the windowsil, we realized that we needed to get to town for dinner and Waze took us to the steeper route at the other side of the mountain. Coming back up, we got into an accident where our car got stuck in the ditch on the deserted road, and it was 1km walk back down towards the industrial side of town and about 1.5km up to the villa. Luckily, we managed to get Franco on the phone to help us out and a tow truck had to come rescue us. Since it is pretty much a 1-way road, it was a complex operation and we finally got ourselves sorted out after 2 hours and 300 Euros later. The villa we were in (no 11, I think) was a family villa with 4 beds and 2 baths and a fully functioning kitchen. We had a good time cooking our own meals (you can go grocery shopping at the nearby Liedl or Pam supermarkets) but you need to buy the coffee pods for the machines from the reception. One thing lacking in the kitchen were plates, and we had to make do with eating in bowls. The property is quiet, with a beautiful swimming pool where you can see the beautiful towers of San Gimignano in the skyline and we had a gazebo where we can eat al fresco. WiFi in the villa sucked, and you need to be outside to leech from the router somewhere, so we are forever outside, or at the glassdoor of our patio. lol! It is a little isolated and takes a 15 minute drive to town, so you definitely need a car to get around. Take the longer route as it is much safer. It was at the shorter route at the other side of the hill where we got into the accident as it was extremely steep and not easy to navigate if you are not used to driving a manual stick shift!

Thank you very much for your review. We are very sorry about your accident and the inconvenience you experienced on the dusty roads. Yes, we agree with your comment that the dusty road to Poggibonsi is longer but easier to drive, as also described on our ‘general info’. Regarding the Wifii failure, it has to work also inside the Villa, did you mention it at the reception? We would have been happy to resolve this problem for you! The Villa is however provided of plates, they're not in the kitchen but in the cupboard close to the dinner table. We are very sorry you didn’t find them. Thanks again for your feedback and kind regards from Tuscany!

My suite was big enough for a couple but too dark and humid. No restaurants near this property, driving at night was not easy, it is unpaved and the signs aren't visible specially at night, beside this road was too narrow.

This is a very beautiful place located on a green Tuscany hill. It was so green and beautiful. Amazing views. Nice pool. In order not to be disappointed, please note that this is not a hotel and if you expect 24 hours service - don't. But if you look for peace, relax and to feel Tuscany - this is the right place to go. Me and my family spent a great week there. We had a chance to explore Tuscany, to experience "Dolce Far Niente" and enjoy La Dolce Vita. We came home happy and satisfied. In order to easily find the place just use google maps.
