“Perfect place, wonderful hosts.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Podere Dell'Orto on the recommendation of friends. We hired a car in Florence and drove to San Casciano. Simona met us on arrival and escorted us the rest of the way to their farm house. We had intended to spend the next few days driving around the beautiful Tuscan countryside, but on awakening the next morning, we changed our minds and spent 3 days just wondering around their property and the tiny surrounding towns. Olive trees, grape vines, fig and almond trees are just some of the delicious things on offer to their guests. Simona and Roberto recommended the local pizzeria for dinner, where we had the most delicious seafood pasta, pizza and local wines. San Casciano was only 4 k's down the road and was a great place to spend the afternoon. Our last night was spent cooking steaks on the outdoor grill and sharing our meal with the most wonderful hosts Simona and Roberto. After 5 weeks of travelling throughout Europe and the US, this was the perfect place to recharge our batteries. The weather was sunny one day and raining the next, but with the most wonderful 360 degree views there was always something to fill in our time. The accommodation was superb, complete with views of Florence from our bed. Fully equipped kitchen, assorted books to read and the amazing hospitality of Simona and Roberto. We would love to return one day and have most definitely recommended it to our friends and family.

After spending the most of a week travelling around the Northern Tuscany, we ended our honeymoon at Podere Dell'Orto...

When we arrived at the house Simona came towards us with two eggs, just picked up at the hen house - these and a few more became our evening omelette ;o) The hospitality of both Simona and Roberto was enormous - and the place outstandingly charming!
Here we spend the last two days of our vacation, reading books in the garden, drinking wine and enjoying the beautiful view af the Tuscan landscape.

Highly recommendable for couples and families wanting a taste of Tuscany.

The place lies nearby San Casciano, a nice little town with shopping opportunities - and in driving distance for day trips to Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano...

We recommend Podere Dell'Orto as the perfect place to stay whilst site seeing around Tuscany.
The owners, Simone and Roberto provided excellent hospitality, giving spot on directions with maps of all the nearby towns including Florence, Siena and San Gimingiano.
The apartment was super, we could relax after a busy day and had the opportunity to self cater.
The local village has a pizzeria, San Casciano supermarkets, banks, bakeries and restaurants.

We were truly delighted with our stay at Podere Dell'Orto. The location is excellent, just 18 mins from Florence and close enough to the Sienna-Florence highway to make most destinations in Tuscany easily accessible. But the centrality does not detract from the beauty of the location - see the pictures for evidence of this! Simona and Roberto were friendly and helpful. Simona has an adequate English, accompanied with a map and explanation to meet every request. At the same time they were unobtrusive and let us enjoy our stay there. We had the Olivo apartment which was charming and well equipped for the two of us.

We could not have been happier with our choice, and only regret not having more time to relax in the beautiful garden setting of Podere Dell'Orto. Definitely recommended.

We stayed for just under a week and had an excellent time. I can't tell you enough how wonderfull and helpful the owners were and the apartments are finished off to an excellent standard. The whole place is very beautiful. The only downside is the location, although a perfect base to travel around Tuscany, you do have to drive everywhere as there are no local restaurants or bars.

  • Liked — The owners and the apattments
  • Disliked — The location - but it was beautiful!

Ideallic agritourismo in Chianti region. House built in 1500's in the middle of olive trees and vineyards. The owners couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. The home only has two apartments so it's relaxed and you feel as if you have the place to yourself. Location is convenient for day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti, etc. Great for families. We went there with a 4 month old. Stay for at least a week!
