We stayed at Pornano for one week as part of a 4 month tour of Italy. Based upon the reviews we had read we had high expectations and we were not disappointed. The directions to the farmstead were excellent particularly bearing in mind the location. As soon as we drove up the hosts Ken and Pam made us feel at ease and at home.
The apartment is also very homely and extremely well equipped. It opens out onto a lovely garden area with superb views across typical Tuscan countryside where you can sit sipping your favourite tipple as the sun sets. The welcome was made even more special with the welcoming pack which amongst other things included home made bread and marmalade (the pot only lasted two days !).
Ken and Pam have a wealth of experience of the area and this is all on tap to help you maximise the enjoyment of your stay. There are many local walks and the opportunity to walk with Ken if you wish.
If you wish to take the opportunity of buying all the fantastic local produce to cook (as we do) then you will find the kitchen equipped to a much higher standard than any comparable villa /apartment that we have stayed at.
For us Pornano was the perfect location in our favourite area of Italy and we are likely to return on many occasions. Additionaly Ken and Pam are ideal hosts who have the knack of knowing the level of their input appropriate for your holiday.

“A perfect place to stay in Chianti with very kind owners”

This apartment is extremely well equiped even down to an internet radio and is the best equiped apartment have stayed in. The living room is very comfortable and the bathroom and kitchens are new and excellent. There is a private garden area for sunbathing and eating where Polly the dog comes to give you company. The apartment was exceptionally clean and we were even provided on our arrival with home made bread and marmalade from Pam and a bottle of wine and home made Olive oil from Ken. The apartment provides shady and safe private parking close to the entrance. We went on some walks with Ken round the area which were very interesting and he showed us the way to walk to Radda and back for lunch. I recommend these walks as you see so much more of the nature of the area and Ken can describe the local plants.Pam and Ken took an interest in our trips and gave us useful tips on where to visit and the restaurants of the area. The whole area is very quiet and the house set back from the little used white road so that the only noises are the local deer barking and the swifts circling in the evening.

Liked best: Meeting the owners Ken and Pam and having Ken show us walks round the area
Liked least: In a vintage sports car the access road seemed longer than its 4 kms but meant the house was very quiet
