We were at Vernianello for the second time this year and it was even better as the first! The view is so gorgeous, morning day and night, the cottages are lovely decoration very cool dus to the thick walls and fully equiped.
The location is perfect for visiting Sienna, Florence and Greve, san Giminiano, the Chianti area and even Pisa as Poggibonsi is central and access to the main roads.
However, our 2 year old daughter didn't mind staying home for the entire day either, as she still talkes about the shed with a full supply of toys near the pool area, with barbies, cars, puzzles little dinner cooking stuff with table and chairs. As it is shaded by a tent and blocked off so she could not disappear, we could sit by the pool enjoying the sun, while she made us dinner :-) the pool is nice and big.
Fabio and Ilenia are great hosts, Ilenia cooked us a very nice meal on the day we arrived so we didn't have to cook and she makes a perfect cappucino in the morning. Ilenia makes you feel welcome like old friends and helps out where ever she can, wether it's baby equipment or places to eat or just a chat to see if you are ok. ( but with respect for your privacy)
The wine is so good, you keep coming back for more bottles each night as is the olive oil.
We had a great time, were terribly homesick the moment we left and we will be back and stay longer next year!
