If you don't stay at La Marronaia you miss the boat, and the wine which is organic is the best I have had while traveling in Italy. When in San Gimignano stop in and have a taste, you will be hooked on their wine. And don't forget you can stay the flat was very comfortable, We will be back

This was our first visit to Tuscany so we were not quite sure what to expect - but Silvia made us immediately feel welcomed and gave us lots of details about San Gimignano and the area. The flat was comfortable and well-equipped, and once we had learned not to leave doors open to avoid the cats making themselves at home, we enjoyed evenings in the garden watching the sunset.
We attended the second wine tasting in their new farmhouse in San Gimignano and managed to squeeze a couple of bottles into our case for the return.
The area was wonderful (helped by excellent weather) and we found it to be an ideal location from which to explore Tuscany.
The only disadvantge (nothing to do with the flat) was regular barking or howling from some dogs on a neighbouring property.
We would certainly return again!

Room Tip: The yellow flat was great with access both to the front and rear of the farmhouse so sun all day!

We had a wine tasting session at Podere La Marronaia's new Le Colonne location. Le Colonne is an old farm house in San Gimignano. We started out in the vineyard, where Silvia explained not only what goes into the growing of the grapes, but also explained the details on the practices that are required to obtain the "Bio" certification. We then went inside for the tasting. The wines were superb - so good that we ordered a case to be shipped to our home. Silvia had also prepared a beautiful plate of delicious cheeses, meats, and breads to go with our wines. We had the pleasure of meeting some of Silvia's family and we really got a sense of what it is like to run a family winery in Tuscany. The farm house is so picturesque. As we told Silvia, American women spend tens of thousands of dollars trying to make their houses look this way. The setting for the tasting really just works its magic on you. Silvia and her family are very genuine and hard-working people - they make you feel so comfortable and welcome. We just cannot say enough good things about our visit to Le Colonne. If you have a chance to do anything with Podere La Marronaia, do it. We were in Europe for three weeks (two weeks in Itally) and had many great experiences, but our time at Le Colonne has one of the best parts of our trip.

Me, my wife and my two kids stayed at La Marronaia last month. The apartment was comfortable and good for our children. We loved the location because it is very close to San Gimignano and few km from Siena. The wine is great and the Dei family is kind and warm. We’ll come back for sure!

We stayed here two years ago for our mini-moon and were not disappointed. Sylvia is a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful, and the wine tour mid week was most enjoyable, with absolutely delicious wine and olive oil which we just had to buy some of to take home with us! (Run out now ... must go back and get more!). The rooms were clean and had everything we needed, and the pool was a welcome relief at the end of each day, and almost always we had it to ourselves. The scenery in every direction is breathtaking in its beauty, and situated near San Gimignano meaning we could travel easily to all the other main cities in Tuscany that we wanted to see. Lovely place - top recommendation!

Me and my family spent a really nice holiday at La Marronaia. Our apartment was clean and comfortable. We appreciated the typical breakfast, the large garden, perfect for the kids even in spring, and their great wine. The location is good because San Giminiano is only few minutes by car and easy to reach. It was the first time for us, but not the last for sure!

From the moment I contacted Sylvia about renting an apartment we were made to feel special. On arrival, despite the pouring rain and dark we were greeted warmly and welcomed to this amazing podere and so relaxed very quickly. Sylvia was always available but not intrusive and had a wealth of knowledge about the local area. The accommodation itself was spacious and comfortable and adequately apportioned although, being English, a kettle would have been useful. An amazing area, fabulous scenery, excellent restaurants nearby which meant we didn't have to cook plus wonderful wine. An excellent holiday and a place I'm sure we will return to as we will soon need to replenish the wine cellar!

We always try to transmit the feeling and passion for our Podere to our guests and when we are really able to share this with them...that’s really our goal!
