“A nice place - just a bit too far off the beaten track”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Nicely done B&B, helpful and friendly staff clean rooms and beautiful views. The breakfast was plentiful and good, we also had one of our dinners there and it was also very good. The weather wasn't great while we were in Tuscany but they helped us find things to do, cooking class at a nearby winery, hiking excursion etc... All in all a very pleasant stay. My only real gripe is that it was simply too long a drive from the nearest towns, that said it's seclusion may be a positive for others.

Room Tip: Take the hike and winery tour with the owner's husband, it's an interesting walk through the...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and I can only say that the place was out of this world. The owner Federica has designed the place to tick all of the boxes. Truly rustic with beautiful interior design and highest quality in every way. We arrived on a motorbike after a very long day but were made very welcome. The place is a couple of miles down a dirt track but don't let that put you off. A 5 star experience. We will be back!

Very nice B&B with fantastic atmosphere, very nice view and comfortable rooms. The owners are very nice and you can really feel at home since your arrival. The hotel is located approx. 3,5 km from the main road but the view and quiet location deserves such 10 min trip. Try the dinner which is served only upon previous reservation and is very good

Beautiful place but very hard to find, there is no indication how to get there and GPS doesn't know the address. Be sure to have every detail of the road begore heading there. Rooms are very big and clean. There is no TV in the room. Everything was perfect however for me it was too far away specially when we were returning from the restaurant in the night. This is the perfect choise for people who are looking for very very calm place.

Dear Guest,
I would like to thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you could not fully appreciate the geographical location of Podere Marciano. I can state, for experience, that most guests get used and love the idea of being so much immersed in the nature after a couple of days. We'll be glad to welcome you here if you decide to get a very peaceful break. Kindest regards

My sister booked us in here for our final night in Italy, after staying in Rome then Vignamaggio. Well the best was left till last, a typical rustic country road wound its way to a beautiful setting. A super greeting from Frederico awaited! Our room was immaculate and had a lovely balcony to look over the countryside. We went down in the evening to reception drinks and an awesome birthday dinner for me and my family, I'm a chef in England and I was impressed with the high standard of food, wine and service. The downside was having to leave early before breakfast to catch our flights home but we will never forget Frederico's jewel in the Tuscan hills and I hope we can return in the near future and have a little longer in that pool!!!!

Antico Podere Marciano is exceptional place to spend vacation. It is relaxing and very authentic- nothing like mass market hotels... My favorite part of the days in Toscania was delicious breakfast in the lovely garden at Antico Podere. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who values their vacation. Yes the B&B is a bit pricy but it is worth it.
