“Cosy and beautiful ”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Carla is a welcoming and generous host! From the start of our stay she made us feel like her family.
It's a beautiful home in a great location outside of the centre.
The whole property is perfect to relax on the patio or explore the farm.
We loved her freshly baked cake and homemade jams in the morning! Served with fruit from the garden and good coffee! Along with more cakes and bread with condiments.
The view from our room was spectacular. Our room was authentically Tuscan with a beautifully decorated bedroom and private bathroom.
The location is perfect if you're looking for something more quite with typical Tuscan views but also close to the centre (we walked in everyday). There is also a bus that takes you from the driveway.

We loved it so much we stayed an extra night.

Thank you for having us Carla, we loved it!

This friendly, cosy, tranquil setting was my favourite stay in Italy! In hindsight I would have stayed there as a home base for tuscany and Firenze. The hosts are so warm, relaxed, welcoming and knowledgeable and are skilled at figuring out what you might like and have lots of suggestions. Easy to walk or bus to Siena or drive to other towns nearby. Highly recommended and hope to come back some day!

It was a lovely, rambling, comfortable house in the beautiful countryside just outside the wall. We stayed 4 nights and liked our accomodation and our host more every day. Federica and her other Carla were always ready to answer questions, make excellent restaurant recommendations, and help us sort out our rental car pickup and the map work involved. We enjoyed meeting Federica's daughtes and other guests at breakfast in the homey kitchen or on the patio, and we loved our daily walk to and from the centre of sienna. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, with a great view, and the bathroom was nicely updated with a good shower. We were a couple but I this would also be a nice place for a family to stay and enjoy the grounds and play equipment.

If you’re traveling to Tuscany, this B&B makes a great home base! It’s just outside of Siena’s walls so you can get some exercise by walking or catch the bus at the end of the driveway. Florence and the other hill towns are easy drives or grab a bus. Federica and Carla will take great care of you - you’ll get all sorts of travel advice and Carla’s wonderful jams at breakfast. We just stayed there for the third time and hope we get to go back soon!

We have stayed in Podere le vigne on Easter day. Literally, I called the evening before and Frederica arranged the room. The welcome is very warm!! From the beginning you feel like a family member. Room was very clean, unfortunately, the weather was too bad to take advantage of the lovely surroundings. Recommended.

Podere la Vigne was exactly what we were hoping for when we booked our visit to Sienna. Our room was cozy and clean, the views were AMAZING, the breakfast was delicious and Fredrica and Carla were helpful, friendly and fun. The location is perfect. You can easily walk into town (ask about the backroad route to avoid the traffic), or catch the bus. My husband and I traveled with our two teenaged children. My daughter's comment as we were leaving summed up our stay. She said, "I feel like if we lived in Italy we would be friends with this family." Our stay at Podere la Vigne was definitely one of the very best parts of our week-long trip to Italy.

Reviewed 4 November 2013

On our 3 1/2 week touring Tuscany, Umbria & Lazio, we stayed at over 10 b&b's.
Podere le vine was my favorite of all of them. Federica & her mother were so pleasant
and friendly and served us the most delicious breakfast with 5 kind of home made jams.

The B&B is on an fruit orchard with apricots, figs, citrus, plums, pomegranates. It is very
quiet and completely in the countryside with beautiful views and smoking is not allowed.
However, it is only a 15 minute walk to Siena (or 3 minute car ride).

Great place … very comfortable … I want to go back there.
