“The perfect wedding venue!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We spent a week at Podere Il Pino where we had our wedding reception by the pool over the gorgeous views of San Gimignano. It was absolutely perfect! My husband and I have now been to Podere il Pino 4 times in total. Matteo has been unbelievably helpful and accommodating everytime. We hired out the whole of Podere il Pino for the week and had a party every night. The day after the wedding we had a sit down BBQ which was totally organised by Matteo- it was stunning, with fairy lights hung up and the food was delicious. We had some birthdays whilst we were there too and Matteo's mum even made us 3 birthday cakes! Our guests have already said they are going to come back next year for our anniversary and want to do it all again! Thank you Podere il Pino and Matteo for the wedding week of our dreams- we can not thank you enough! Love The Holbroughs! Xxxxx

This is the fourth time we had been to stay at Podere il Pino. It is simply a beautiful place to stay in Tuscany. The setting is fantastic, with great views across the vineyards to San Gimignano, the pool, gardens and barbeques are great and the apartments are big and well maintained.
Every time we have been Matteo has been a great host, helping us in everything we need to do.
I couldn't recommend Podere il Pino highly enough and we enjoyed it so much we came back and got married there!

I stayed in Villa No. 9 with 12 other companions in July 2013, and we couldn't have been more pleased! The villa was superb, the staff very accommodating and the views unbelievable! The location was simply the best - short drives to everything you could possibly want to see!

I have recommended Podere il Pino to many friends who are planning trips to the Tuscany area. I know they will have a fabulous time, as we all did!

I stayed here recently with a large group of friends for a wedding. I can honestly say this is one of the nicest places I have had the pleasure of staying in Italy.

The rooms are ideally equipped with everything you need for a self catered stay, and the venue is situated only a short drive from the local train station, which has good links to Florence, Pisa and many other beautiful places to see in Italy. The only thing to note is you could not stay here without access to a vehicle!

The views from the pool area can not be beaten. Simply stunning.

I would certainly look to stay here again if I was in the area...........

We had a very nice stay in Podere il Pino. The place is situated among the olives and the grapes orchards and with a beautiful view of San Gimigniano. There is a garden with some local herbs and a barbecue place. Our landlord turned out to be both a very discreet and helpful when needed. Our cottage was clean and fully equiped, but anyway - we stayed most of the time outside enjoying breathtaking landscapes form our garden.

We stayed at Podere il Pino in August and early September, first days in appartment 5, afterwards in appartment 8. Even though there was a double booking made due to a communication mistake, Matteo the manager, made a generous offer so we could stay at Pino.

We had a great time, the garden and pool are marvelous, with views as in the pictures. Appartment number 8 was perfect, also with great views. Kitchen is large enough, only the fridge can be to small of you stay with older kids or more adults. For us, 2 adults and 2 little kids it was a large appartment with enough space for he kids.

Even though all most all appartments where booked, the place is stil tranquil and really a hidden gem. Location is perfect near San Giminiano and in between Florence andere Siena.

Only minuses are the fact that there was no possibility to have dinner twice a week as promised upfront and during our stay and it isn't possible to order fresh bread. Plus the fact there was no personell at the reception all 11 days (exept for 4 hrs in total). We had contact with the gardener who didn't speak English, so communicating was a challenge, but we managed.

Room Tip: Appartment 8 has a large livingroom with attached diningarea and kitchen. The apartment had beauti...

We stayed from 7th September for a week with a party of friends for the wedding of two of our friends. We had a fantastic time. The views from the complex are stunning. The apartments are basically comfortable but the weather was so good we spent most of the time in the garden or by the pool. The wedding reception went like clockwork the service and food could not be faulted. The organisation by Matteo was superb. If there is a downside it is the approach roads which are unmade and bumpy. Once you are in the complex it could not be faulted. One of best locations in Europe at which to have Gin and Tonic o'clock.
