We recently spent a lovely week based at La Marronaia. We must agree with all of the reviews that the location is magnificent. When you arrive it certainly is a wow view in all directions and very peaceful. It is an ideal location to tour the main Tuscan areas too. Silvia is very welcoming and friendly and was on hand if we need any guidance. The apartments are "rustic" and fairly basic. There is loads of hot water. A couple of drawback we felt were:- There is no toaster, kettle or proper oven. Luckily we ate out for most meals so it wasn't a great issue to us, how ever if you plan to stay in and cook the facilities may present a challenge. There are 12 resident cats on the property. This meant that we could not leave the apartment door open and it also meant we couldn't eat breakfast at the outside table as the cats invaded all the time.

Room Tip: all rooms have magnificent views

Cari amici,sono felice di leggere il vostro commento e di sapere che avete trascorso una buona vacanza al nostro Podere. Mi dispiace che non abbiate trovato il tostapane, in ogni appartamento ce n'è uno Grantostiere g7 Imetec. Nel vostro caso si trova sottoil forno convenzionale/micoronde insieme alla macchina del caffè americano, spremiagrumi elettrico ed altri piccoli accessori. Vi avrei potuto aiutare se me lo aveste chiesto. Il bollitore non c'è ma mi sembra un buon suggerimento, per cui provvederemo a dotare tutti gli appartamenti di questo elettrodomestico. Vi ringrazio per le belle parole che ci avete riservato e spero di incontrarvi di nuovo alla Marronaia. Silvia

Recently stayed here with some friends. Without doubt La Marronaia is blessed with stunning views all round. The location is ideal as a base for touring and we found no problem covering quite a bit of Tuscany during our stay. The accommodation itself is rustic but comfortable, and as we didn't actually spend that much time in our apartment it was good enough. We found the bed a little hard, but that is our personal taste. Silvia the owner, is very welcoming, charming, warm and friendly. She was also a good source of information. We didn't use the pool, but we did make use, very successfully, of the barbecue area. The walk into San Gimignano, if you are that brave, is about 3.5 kms (we measured the distance in the car), and the last km back form San Gimignano is unlit and has no footpath.

The only comment I would make, is that if you don't like cats, this may not be the place for you. There are about 12, and if you leave food outside unattended,they will be after it. We have had cats for years, but they were beginning to be a bit too much.

Other than that, we enjoyed our stay at La Marronaia and would recommend to anyone who wants a good base for touring.

Room Tip: The views are stunning, whichever apartment you choose

In May we stayed for one week in Podere La Marronaia. Looking for a central location in Tuscany it fitted well. We booked via Gigi Travel in Holland, and we do not regret this. Our stay in the Blue Appartment was wonderfull. The wellcome by Silvia was very warm and we felt home from the first moment. La Marronaia is located on top of a hill, with breathtaking views in the surroundings, including a view on San Gimignano. The blue flat was comfortable, but we mostly stayed in the garden near the olive trees and the vineyard. Our holiday was very relaxing, and we enjoyed driving our Morgan in the Tuscan hills. La Marronaia produces some very fine wines, we consumed a few bottles in the podere, and we took some with us to Holland. Silvia organised a lovely wine (and olive oil) tasting and told a lot about their organic wines. We can recommend La Maronaia to everybody and are determined to visit it again. You do have to like cats, because there is a whole army of cats, with the red cat Leone as the leader. We liked the cats and they belong to the character of La Marronaia. We already miss them.

Cari amici vi ringrazio per il vostro commento e l'apprezzamento dimostrato per la Marronaia. Anche per noi siete stati degli ospiti molto piacevoli, disponibili ad accettare ogni nostro suggerimento e coinvolgimento. Vedervi partire ogni mattina con la vostra fantastica Morgan era veramente molto bello. Vi aspettiamo alla Marronaia la prossima volta che deciderete di venire in Toscana, e magari ci potremo organizzare per andare insieme a vedere il passaggio delle Mille Miglia! Un caro saluto Silvia e famiglia

We were looking for an apartment near San Gimignano for a relaxing break and were lucky enough to find the Yellow Apartment on Owners Direct. From the very first correspondence with Sylvia we were convinced we had made the right decision. But the apartment exceeded our high expectations. The welcome from Sylvia and her family was very welcoming and we immediately felt at home. The apartment is quite small but well proportioned and had every thing we needed. The shower was surprisingly powerful and everything was clean and well maintained.

But it is the outside that is most impressive. The views from all aspects of the farm are out of this world beautiful. The gardens are beautifully maintained as are the pool and barbeque areas. We felt comfortable to use all the areas as if they were our home which made eating outside lovely, including a lovely barbeque using fabulous local produce.

We attended the wine tasting presented by Sylvia. The Organic wine created by the Podere is all delicious and we bought and enjoyed several bottles during our stay.

We hired a car and felt it was necessary particularly to do the shopping, although there is a nice small shop on the way into town, together with a pizza takeaway. However, the walk into the town is 2k and takes about 20 minutes easy walking and it is definitely worth the effort. The town is fabulous with some amazing restaurants, views, bars and shops.

The only negative comment wasn't negative for us, but if you don't like cats this might not be the place for you. There are a lot of them but they are outdoor cats and we loved getting to know them and see their different personalities.

We will definitely be visiting the region again and can't think of a better place to stay that Podere La Morronaia. Thank you Sylvia for a lovely stay.
