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.
