“Fantastic base for Tuscany vacation”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We stayed a week. Several excellent destinations within easy reach. We go in the early part of the day when it's cooler, then return home to enjoy the pool in the heat, then either make our own meal in the full kitchen, or take the short walk up the hill to one of the two fine restaurants in the nearby walled old town with killer views of hills and hilltowns to the southeast, drenched in golden light from the setting sun.

Staff was great, very responsive. Parking easy. Walks and runs and views from the property are all very pleasant. If you're looking for something quiet and off the beaten path but with no real sacrifices, this is the place.

I can say for sure that we'll stay here again!

We got married in Barberino last may and invited our family and friends over to stay at this beautiful and well maintained place. The staff is the best and fulfilled all our needs. We are definitely going back, because we want at least one more view from the beautiful terrace onto the Tuscany landscape.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect. Things to consider, the bigger houses have a terrace with a great view. The o...

Both my wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Podere San Bartolo. Because of its central position, it was the perfect staging place for day trips to various of the lovely Tuscan hill cities and Florence.

The Podere itself was nicely appointed with good cooking facilities and nearby grocery stores. There are also some nice little restaurants in the village.

The view from the Podere was beautiful, and the villa itself lovely.

Room Tip: The Podere isn't big, and there aren't any bad rooms in it.

The garden arround the villa is beautiful. Just outside the gate ther is a nice garden for children to play. During the summer there are many conserts in the beautiful church in Barberino Val d'Elsa. In Tavernelle, near by you can rent bike.

This was our third visit to Podere San Bartolo, which for travellers who like diverse destinations is surprising. But it is a super place. It starts with the welcome from the delightful Cecile and carries on within the properties, which are tasteful and immaculate. The pool is fab', overlooking quintessential Tuscan hills. The location is ideal, Sienna, Florence, Tuscan villages, restaurants and hills are all surrounding you and within easy drives. You should go without hesitation.

Room Tip: Just pick the property to suit your party they are all good. They also have two properties in the vi...

We loved this villa. We decided to get the large home that sleeps 8 and we had 6 people. My parents are 75 and 80 and needed a first floor room. My two children (teenagers) and my husband took the two upstair bedrooms. The view is breathtaking and it is only about a 200 ft walk to the little village of San Barbarino. The pool on the property is excellent and Cecile who manages the location is a wonderful person. I spent a year planning on my trip to Italy and the villa was one of the "wow" locations. I highly recommend this location to anyone. Our neighbors in the area are frequent vacationers and love the location because it is only a 30 min ride to Florence. It is also a short ride to all of the other lovely locations in Tuscany. Certaldo, Siena, San Gimignano, and Monteriggioni. Enjoy the location. The only downside of our visit is that it was 100 degrees and this location does not have air conditioning. We were there the last week of June. So you need to sightsee early in the day and get into the pool. I could not cool down during the week, it i was just so hot. But I pinched myself every morning as I sat on my terrace watching the beautiful view.
