We loved it here. The Podere is down a dirt track in the middle of forests, olive groves and vineyards. Our room had a balcony with a view over the hills. We could hear wild boar rooting around in the garden at night. It was wonderful. Service was friendly, breakfast good. We will be back.

Our tour group of 13 spent a wonderful week at Antico Podere Marciano. The villa is beautifully restored, Federica and her staff are friendly and helpful, and the view is exquisite! We enjoyed many evening meals on the lovely terrace with Federica's recommended chef and the breakfasts were delightful. The charming salon and bar area were a wonderful place to... More

Sympathetically renovated ancient farmhouse in exceptional location with great views across the hills. Slightly tricky to find, but owner gives helpful guidance. Helpful and considerate owners, pretty rooms with private terraces in traditional Tuscan style. Lovely pool and gardens. Very good breakfasts on terrace (or indoors in cooler weather). Between Florence, Siena and San Giminiano.
