Staying in Podere Pietreta for a recent long weekend in Tuscany made our visit even more special. We stayed in the Lavanda room and it was clean, cozy and full of natural charm from the region. The nights were still a bit cool, and it was nice to see that the heat was fully functioning. The groundskeeper was very friendly and helpful, and a delicious picnic basket of cakes and coffee were delivered every morning to our doorstep. A beautiful place to just walk out the door and explore nature, and well situated to take day trips to surrounding areas like Montalcino and Montepulciano. The owner was also very accommodating to our last minute requests. Definitely stay here if you get the chance!

We give it a 4.5 and not a 5 because it was lacking a few basic amenities, such as proper drinking glasses / wine glasses (we are in Tuscany afterall)!

We stayed for a week and we really enjoyed the place. Well situated, we were able to travel and visit several places.
The place is surrounded from the nature and is very peaceful.
Concerning the room, it was perfect: clean and functional.
The breakfast was enjoyable with cakes and jam.
Antonio and Lucia are very kind hosts, and do everything to make us feel comfortable.

We’ve stayed at Podere Pietrata ever since we ‘found’ it on the website several years ago. We love the great pool for swimming (in warm weather, of course); the absolutely stunning views; the caretakers, Mauro and Anna who make sure we had everything we needed which included supplying us with ample wood for our fires in the warm, cozy apartment, which was well stocked and immaculate. The owners, Antonio and Lucia are precious people who make you feel like one of the family. Our favorite thing is to get our coffee and walk outside to be stunned, once again by the spectacular views, the fresh country air where everything is quiet except for the chirping of the birds.
This is the place to really experience Tuscany, olive trees, rosemary and lavender bushes scenting the air, deer roaming just yards away! You get the feeling that you just want to stay there forever. It’s our favorite place on earth! (and you can’t beat the price!)
We’ve stayed many places in Italy over the past 8 or 9 years and Podere Pietrata is the reason we come back again and again. And you can’t beat the price!

A small piece of paradise with a lovely countryside nearby. The stunning panorama astonished me (watch out! The moonlight will be inside your bed :-) ) and all the atmosphere was permeated with relax: I've finally found a place where I can actually unplug, chilling out and re-energise myself. Neverthless, if you can't resist, ask the landlords for the wi-fi connection! It's available, and pretty cheap.
In addition, the landlords are kind, the swimming pool can cool your summer days, and in less than a hour by car you can reach the wonderful places in the surroundings (My suggestions: San Casciano spa, Pienza, Montepulciano, Monte Amiata).
Pietreta, I am getting back!

Radicofani is a very small town in the southern part of Tuscany, near the Umbrian Border.
Close to Pienza, Montepulciano, Lago Bolsena,Lago Trasimeno.
You reach the house on a dirt road. It is very quiet and the landscape is great. There is also a swimming pool 12m x 6 m
Not a lot of tourist in the small village. Here you find the italian butcher, baker,...........................
