The views from Podere Ampella are stunning looking over the classic Tuscan scenery, the small complex of villas are built to a high standard and well equipped and furnished with all needs for a holiday break. They are well presented and cleaned on arrival, the owners Robert and Paola are very helpful to ensure all goes well. The location is... More

If you want a place nice and quiet, where you can cater for yourself, try this place. There are several houses on the premises, and some of them share a pool, which was never crowded. Everything is laid out well by an architect, so alle the houses have their own private patios. You need a car to stay here. You... More

great place for a relaxing and quiet holiday apart from the day the euro fighters had a training flight directly overhead...good photos though! The villa Casa Marta was everything that we had hoped for...clean, easy to use and well equipped. We were well looked after with sheet and towel changes once a week. Hot water always on tap and efficient... More

Podere Ampella is a place where one can find peace of mind and soul. Our family has been there three times since 2012 when we discovered it merely by chance. Far from the maddening crowds of Florence and Siena, yet close to all the most beautiful places in Tuscany, it represents the most unique combination of Tuscan life and history.... More

This property is set in the most glorious Tuscan country side. The views from the garden (private garden with each Villa) was just stunning. Although there were a number of Villas on the site the private garden space gave a sense of privacy and enhanced the tranquility. The pool was of size and had plenty of sun loungers and shade....

Fantastic area, close to the wine districts and beautiful towns. The surroundings are breathtaking, exactly what Tuscany is supposed to be. Very nice and service minded owners and the house was just perfect.

First of all, let me state emphatically that this Villa is in a stunning location. Located on a ridge, surrounded by the Tuscan scenery, and with a nice little pool, one can not ask for more in terms of getting the feeling of La Dolce Vita. However, we had some issues. We had rented a three bedroom place (Villa Montisi)... More

We are most disappointed as we work very hard to make sure each customer is looked after however in this instance we must correct the issues raised as they are not fair. The accommodation is self catering so electricity and gas are charged as with most self catering homes. This we always detail at the time of booking on the... More

We had an amazing week in casa marta. As we were driving there, we turned a corner along the road somewhere after Sinalunga and the scenery took our breath away. Every hillside seemed to grow in beauty and our anticipation increased as we neared Podere Ampella and it more than met our expectations. That first evening, as we sat outside... More
