Well where to start! Driving up the hill and seeing Podere Salicotto is just a beautiful site. Exactly what I wanted when I booked it online. Silvia was nice enough to greet me earlier than normal as I was not feeling well. She even came by in the evening to make sure I was O.K. The next night was the... More

Silvia and Paolo are a most charming, considerate and amicable hostess and host, whose elegant realm, Podere Salicotto, perched on a secluded promontory just 2 km. east of the pleasant and agreeably unpretentious little town of Buonconvento, offers timeless views over classic spare Sienese scapes, more or less unchanged since the Renaissance. Silvia’s savoury breakfasts will gird you for the... More

It's been a little over a week since we reluctantly bid farewell to Silvia and Paolo, our very hospitable and charming hosts at Podere Salicotto, and I can't help but wax lyrical about our stay. It was our first visit, and as we approached this beautiful, uncluttered domain with its quintessentially Tuscan cypress and olive-lined drive, a sense of well-being... More

10月上旬に3泊しました。 まずは何よりもホストのSilviaとPaoloがとてもフレンドリーで、ある晩は宿泊しているゲスト全員と夕食を楽しんだり、おすすめのドライブルートを教えてくれたり、ワイナリー訪問もアレンジしてもらったり、滞在中とても楽しく快適に過ごせました。オルチャを車で回るには、ここはとても便利なところで、ブオンコンヴェントの町までは車で5分ほどで、モンタルチーノ、サンクイリコドルチャ、ピエンツァ、モンテプルチャーノ、そしてシエナもすべて20分から50分くらいの距離です。 お部屋もとても広く、窓からの景色はまさにトスカーナ。朝の霧がたちこめる時間帯も、夕日はそれはそれはうっとりでした(ホームページの写真より実物の方が良かったです。) 朝食も手作りのケーキ、パンの種類も多く、ハム、チーズ類からヨーグルト、フルーツもたっぷりで、とても美味しかったです。 またこのエリアを旅行するなら、絶対ここに滞在しようと思います。おススメです。 We stayed three nights early October 2016. First of all, Silvia and Paolo, hosts of Podere Salicotto, were super-friendly. We had a great fun having dinner with all other guests. This accommodation is well-located and very close to attractive small towns and villages like Montalcino, San Quirico d’Orcia, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Siena, within 20-50 minutes’... More

I had the opportunity to stay at Podere Salicotto for six days as part of a women's tour of Tuscany. The Villa is beautiful with picturesque views you would expect to find in Tuscany.

We had a great week as a family of 4, taking two rooms at Podere Salicotto. Rooms were clean, had everything we needed and comfortable. Swimming pool was excellent. Lovely breakfasts and, best of all, were the views and the general area where it is situated. Silvia and Paolo were also lovely hosts.
