“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We stayed here in October 2011 and had a wonderful holiday here. The apartments are comfortable and spacious. The views are breathtaking and we never tired of staring out over the hills and vineyards. Silvia and Luigi have created a bit of heaven on earth in this beautiful spot. Its a very relaxing place to get away from it all and there are loads of places to visit if you have a car.
Tip:- Use Silvias GPS coordinates to find the farmhouse rather than type in the address on your Sat Nav, otherwise you find yourself near the cemetery!

My wife and I, along with a couple friends of ours, stayed at Podere la Marronaia the week before Christmas, 2011. We cannot say enough good things about our stay. We loved the location (although be sure to map it as it is difficult to find the first time), the area, the town, our hosts, and their wine and olive oil. The views from the apartments are amazing, and they're quote large for the price. Silvia is great, and helped with everything from sightseeing to arranging the shipping of the case of wine we bought back to the states. This was the highlight of our 26 days in Italy.

My fiance and I stayed at Podere La Marronaia in October for a week, and it was simply beautiful. The self catering apartment was a perfect size for the two of us with a porch that over looked the valley.

Silvia and Luigi were great hosts, and Silvia kindly put up with my endless questions about the area. They really have transformed their winery and olive grove into a comfortable and relaxing environment that you can really enjoy.

We would recommend having a car when you stay here as it's quite a walk into San Gimignano, and the public transport isn't all that great.

It's also a perfect location for seeing the tuscany you see in movies. In the middle of Chianti wine country every photo you take is just picture perfect. It's also perfect for day trips to Siena, Florence, Volterra etc.

A very nice agriturismo on a Tuscan hill with beautiful 360 degrees view! We really loved to stay here. It was for two weeks, but we wished we could stay longer. Sylvia and Luigi are really nice persons and they made us feel like we stayed with friends instead of just being guests of their agriturismo! The location is also perfect, Florence, Pisa and Siena are easy to reach from La Marronaia. And of course San Gimignano nearby. You can rent an old Fiat 500 in San Gimignano. We did and it was a great experience!

After all, we made new friends in Tuscany!

We spent 2 wonderful weeks at La Marronaia. The breathtaking setting on a small hill amongst vineyards and olive groves overlooking San Gimignano towers. Beautifully restored farm house. Lovely pool with a fantastic views. Podere La Marronaia is one of the most relaxing places you could imagine. We truly enjoyed every second of our stay.

I stayed 10 days. Silvia is the perfect host from doing the online booking to saying good bye! Very efficient, never intruding, always ready with advice and arrangements. I stayed at Podera La Colonne, in my opinion the best of all the accomodation offered. Can well serve 2 to 4 people although best for 2. Fully equipped kitchen, beautiful views from the bedroom, kitchen and livingroom windows. I spend hours just sitting in the window and staring over the hills covered with vinyards, olive orchards and old farm houses. The view on San Gimignano is also something to appreciate. I got pictures with full moon - awesome! I'm going back next summer with my partner, never alone again!

My husband and I first visited La Marronaia in April 2009, for a romantic getaway from the craziness of London's busy life. We immediately fell in love with the place, and with the family that runs it! So we decided to go back and this time bring our family. My in-laws came from the United States and we spent a week there this past June (2010), and probably enjoyed the best family vacation the 6 of us have ever had. From the moment you arrive at the Marronaia, and step out of the car, you are immediately absorbed by the tranquility and stillness of the place. You then become aware that you are surrounded by beauty all around! The place itself is indeed stunning, and La Marronaia is a hidden gem within the Tuscan countryside, but what makes the difference is the kindness of the owners, Silvia and Luigi. Always with a smile and kind word, they would often give us advice on the best places to visit, eat and shop, providing clear directions and going out of their way to make sure that we had a lovely stay. I can honestly say these are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet in Tuscany (I am Italian, so I think I can say that!), warm, genuine and very caring. My husband and I have traveled all over the world, and often stayed in 5 star hotels and resorts, so we are used to nice, comfortable places, and La Marronaia fully met our expectations in terms of cleanliness of the apartment and it having all the necessary utensils and appliances for a comfortable stay! I find it hard to understand how someone could have such an oppositely different experience there, since I can only describe it as delightful! My husband and I are already talking about going back at the end of September! :o)
