We stayed at this beautiful place in September for four days and it was absolutely perfect. After the initial shock of the dark (and a bit scary) drive from San Pollo to the house, we realised this was just the perfect escape to have a beautiful quiet holiday, exploring Italy in our car and coming 'home' each evening and enjoying good food, wine and amazing views. There is a nice restaurant not too far away and a wine bar (you do have to drive everywhere from the house as it is quite remote). Using the house as our base we visited Florence, Lucca, most of Chianti's roads and beautiful villages. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay again myself. The owners of the cottage live in the main house in the grounds and they are really lovely and very helpful.
Fabio the owner greeted us warmly. He was very kind and helpful throughout our stay. We immediately felt at home.
We wish we could have stayed for longer than 5 nights.
The property has everything you need with a lot of space and wonderful views. We particularly enjoyed the unspoilt rural location in the hills (wildlife around) and peace & quiet. We hope to return.
Thank you again Fabio.
Set in a stunning location just outside of the quiet village of San Polo in Chianti, Podere Albereto was exactly what we were looking for as a relaxing holiday in Tuscany.
The owners, Fabio and Trinidad, could not have been more friendly and helpful and made our stay all the more enjoyable.
The Giaggiolo apartment itself is simple and clean, the bed very comfortable - it can get warm at night and there is only a ceiling fan in the bedroom (no air conditioning) so be prepared. Fabio kindly provided a second fan, as well as a fold-down bed for our son but he ended up putting the mattress on top of the sofa bed which was a little firmer and more comfortable.
There is only a small oven-grill but we mostly used the hob and had barbecues so this wasn't a problem!
The pool is not large (9mx5mx1m) but is big enough and perfect for a cooling dip ... and the view of the valley from its edge is just magnificent.
All in all we could not recommend this highly enough and look forward to returning!
The apartment is in an ideal location, only 30 minutes from Florence and yet in beautiful countryside with fantastic views. The accommodation is spacious and well presented and the owners couldn't be more helpful. We would love to visit again.
Fabio was a very friendly and helpful host, he showed us around when we arrived. The apartment was wonderful, big windows with amazing views. So quiet and peaceful yet only 30mins from Florence. Space for sunbathing, and having a BBQ, the pool was good too for cooling down.
We had a wonderful holiday at the Giaggiolo apartment. The apartment was very spacious and clean. The setting and gardens were amazing and very relaxing with stunning views all around. Fabio and Trinidad made us feel very welcome, were very friendly and happy to provide advice on all aspects. Fantastic base for visiting various villages/towns and enjoying the swimming pool on our return each day. We will definitely be returning for another wonderful holiday.
