With many many apartments to chose from in the Siena area, our gut feeling took us to Podernovo. And, as many times, that feeling was exactly right! The apartment was cosy and rustic, the bed was comfortable and the very basic kitchenette and bathroom clean. But above all the hospitality of Diana and Tito exceeded all expectations. Whether we wanted to have a quiet time at the apartment, go food shopping at local venues or sightseeing around Siena, they gave us just the information we needed, thought along with our plans and made arrangements where necessary. We felt very welcome and taken care of. With all the extra needs and cares of travelling with a two-and-a-half month old baby, we had a great holiday, not in the least because of Podernovo and its wonderful hosts!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Podernovo is an eighteenth-century a farmhouse with swimming pool near Siena that we have transformed into a cozy vacation villa. It is located in the heart of the Val di Merse, a region between the Crete Senesi and the Maremma, less known than Chianti or Val d'Orcia but perhaps even more authentic and yet to be discovered. The villa is only 3 minutes walk from the village which has all the necessary services. At the same time it enjoys privacy and is surrounded by well-kept green areas and Mediterranean woodland. The rental of the villa is ideal for families and group holidays. The individual apartments are also available for rental when the villa is not already privately rented. Villa Podernovo is also a romantic location for rustic-chic, festive weddings in San Galgano Abbey, which houses the legendary 'Sword in the rock'. The abbey is situated only 7 km from the villa and is a unique venue for weddings. This makes Villa Podernovo an ideal location for wedding celebrations and for a honeymoon. ... more less
