Just home from an amazing stay in Timo apartment at Podere San Galgano and missing it and its tranquility already.We previously stayed,on two occasions, in Salvia apartment ,as it was booked this time we stayed upstairs in Timo.
Timo like Salvia has so much Tuscan charm and atmosphere but with all the comforts and little extras of ones own home.The decor is charming and typically Tuscan in style which lends itself to the beautiful and unique golden light which streams through the windows on a summers evening.
There is a lovely pool now which blends perfectly into the landscape and the surroundings of property, ideal for a day to chill and enjoy the wonderful garden.The family are very kind and helpful and work hard to maintain very high standards.
During this visit we discovered the medieval part of Certaldo ( Certaldo Alto)and it will be the first place we go to when we next visit as it is really beautiful and unlike San Gimignano, which is wonderful in a different way,is quiet and peaceful and very pretty.
We also visited Bagni di Lucca, well worth taking time to include in ones holiday plans.A trip to Baratti was a last minute decision but we were delighted we went as the trip down took us through some amazing countryside and Piombino just down the road was an added bonus with breathtaking sea views.
With all the cooking equipment in Timo and a fantastic choice of fresh food in the shops and supermarkets not to mention the rosemary,sage and bay leaves from the garden we rarely ate out but there are lots of lovely restaurants should one need to go out.
My family and I are really looking forward to returning and can highly recommend this accommodation without hesitation.
