Podere Benintendi is greatly located on a Tuscan hill with panoramic view. The family that runs the place lives on the premises and is very friendly and hospitable. They offer five rooms and some apartments. We stayed in the Dante room, spacious, clean and equipped with a very silent and comfortable airco and insect screens on the windows. Very good beds too and very quiet environment. Everything is well kept here, both inside and outside. The rooms have access to a communal, fully equipped kitchen, that allows for cooking your own meals if you want. But you can also ask the hostess in the morning to cook a home made dinner, which we did twice and is was delicious! Great food (vegetables and herbs from their own garden) for a very reasonable price (3 courses for 22 euro!) accompanied by great local wine. Outside there is a swimming pool and garden with ample seating and tables. I can't think of anything negative here. It is also ideally located to explore Tuscany. San Gimignano is less than half an hour away by car and we also drove to Siena and Volterra from here. Other guests told us they visited the Chianti region and even Pisa, Lucca and Florence. The old part of Certaldo is also charming and there is a train station where you can take the train to Florence, Siena, etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The construction rises on a hill, from here we can enjoy a splendid view on those nearby valleys. The house has been recently restaured and divided into 5 apartments and 5 rooms. Apartments and rooms look out on the garden, where we can admire different varieties of plants and flowers. On the surrounding space, you can find many relax areas, such as the characteristic "Concimaia", a very panoramic place endowed with pavilion, table, chairs and a romantic swing. In the west, close to the construction, we can find a little natural lake, habitat of ducks and frogs, whose croaking amplifies the feeling of close contact with nature. For nature and good form's lovers, Podere Benintendi offers the opportunity of walking and training in the open air. The structure is endowed with a very big swimmingpool (4,5x17 m). Guests can enter into the pool through a roman flight of steps that dips softly into the water. Here you can spend pleasant instants steeped in relax and welfare. Close to the pool, under the wonderful terrace made up of stones, is the characteristic "Enoteca" in rustic style, where you can buy oil of our production. Adjoining to the Entoteca, you can find the gymnasium, that guests can use free. ... more less
