“A warm, beautiful and charming Tuscan villa”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Five of us rented both apartments at La Proda for two weeks, September 25th to October 10th. From the moment we arrived to the morning we left, Juliette and Andrea were warm and gracious hosts. They made sure everything was to our liking and were happy provide information about the area. La Proda is on a hill with views of rolling Tuscan hills, olive and wine orchards, and San Gimignano 2 km to the South. It has outdoor patios facing in three directions, each with miles and miles of views.

Both apartments were well furnished and the king size beds were new, firm and comfortable. The kitchens had everything we needed including two sizes of wine glasses.

The vineyard Poderi del Paradiso, a five minute walk across the road, has wine tastings and sells a wonderful chianti for about $6 a bottle. Podere Villuzza, a ten minute walk down the road, offers a home cooked 5 course home meal.

We stayed here for two weeks and made day trips to Siena, Florence, Raddi in Chianti, Montipulciano, Volterra, and other towns, all within an hours drive, except Florence which was 80 minutes.

Andrea and Juliette supply a list of nearby resources including restaurants, vineyards, and doctors. We highly recommend La Proda and hope to return next year.

“A real gem in Tuscany”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have recently returned from our 2 week stay in the apartment and had the very best holiday, due largely to such fantastic accommodation and the help of Andrea and Juliette!
Very easy to deal with on the lead up to booking and arrival, quick responses to any queries and always happy to help. Met on arrival for welcome to the area along with some coffee and some wine from the local estate - a great start to our hols!
Website listing states it's part of 4 apartments, in reality the owners live in one, an Italian family in one and the other apartment is a double occupancy so we pretty much had the pool and surrounding grounds to ourselves for the 2 weeks - a welcome surprise indeed!!
Furnishings and equipment in apartment are to a high standard, BBQ surrounded by fresh herbs and the most beautiful views of the countryside was possibly the prettiest place we have ever cooked! Andrea and Juliette are fantastic hosts, on hand if you have any questions but very discreet if you don't.
Great location for exploring Tuscany although San Gimignano is such a gem you might not even want to leave there!
Can't recommend this place highly enough and the apartment is fantastic, new to market in 2015 which is why there are no further reviews. Does mean everything in accommodation was brand new and spotless!
Will definitely return to both the area and the Andrea and Juliette's warm hospitality
