We stayed at Podere Casano earlier this month for 9 days. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and recommend it to others who are on a driving vacation through Italy. The location is just outside of the small town of Radicofani which makes it an excellent place from which to explore the neighboring Tuscan hill towns (Montecchiello, Montalcini, Pienza, Cortona, Montepulciano etc) that are so famous for their charm and history. Radicofani is not as famous as these other towns but it has a number of sights worth visiting including a Tower with incredible vistas. It also has all of the amenities you will need - gas, groceries, post office, coffee shops, butcher, baker etc.
We had a one bedroom suite on the second floor. The rooms were spacious. The kitchen and bathroom though modern, were still in keeping with the rustic charm of the building. Although we missed having WIFI and an air conditioner in the bedroom, we felt that the price we paid was very reasonable.The pool is a wonderful addition for summer stays.
Mauro and his family are dairy farmers who work very hard to maintain the property. Despite language limitations they were very friendly and eager to ensure that we had a good stay.
If we could make one suggestion it would be that better driving instructions to the property would be provided as its little hard to find the first time. For example, if you are coming from the north, you will pass through Radicofani on SS478 as it heads towards Sarteano. You will turn slightly right on to a dirt road just after the second agricultural road sign. Podere Casano is at the end of this road - about 1.7 kms from the paved road.
