We booked a room at Podere Salicotto last minute for two nights and were thrilled we were able to get a room. We liked it so much that we had to stay two additional nights. First of all, the place is beautiful. It is on the top of a hill overlooking Tuscany - 360 degree views all around. There is a beautiful pool where you can enjoy the view. Benches are also strategically set up to enjoy the sunset view. Sylvia and Paulo are fantastic hosts. They have a fully stocked wine cellar that you are welcome to purchase wine from and they organize tastings in their cellar. The breakfast in the morning is composed of many homemade delights. Our favorite was their homemade brown bread which they toast and put homemade olive oil on. They also know all the great wineries to visit, restaurants to eat at, and help you organize everything that you want to do. It was conveniently located in the heart of Tuscany and near Buonconvento, a town with a number of restaurants if you don't want to drive very far to dinner. The only complaint we had was the internet did not work on our mac computers (everyone with PC laptops had no problem). My husband also complained about the slow opening gate, which Sylvia warned us about - apparently it irritates Americans!
