Podere Campaini
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We had reservations for May 1. After a long day of driving, we arrived in Villamagna, only to discover that the directions provided by the lodging were totally insufficient and inaccurate. I called the place and got an Italian voicemail....no one to talk to. I then called both the cell numbers provided by the lodging on Venere and both very nice ladies told me in their best but heavily accented English that they no longer work there, that no one at Podere Compaini spoke English, that it was hard to find, but they tried to give directions.. As best I could understand from them, this place is not in Volterra or Villamagna---maybe somewhere in between but no specific directions given by the property on the website or confirmation, and current Garmin GPS does not show the road existing--- and although many podere and agriturismo have signs on the roads, Podere. Compaini does not. After spending over an hour trying unsuccessfully to find the place, including asking the carabinieri in Villamagna, I gave up and drove back to Siena, luckily getting a last minute room at Il Canto del Sole (very nice--go there instead of Podere Campaini.) Unless you can talk to the owner directly and get explicit directions, don't book here.

This family run accommodation is everything a couple singles family - anyone really would need to enjoy a stay in rural Tuscany. I am a lone parent and stayed with Daiana and Cassandra for one week with my family and my son's girlfriend. They were 14, 17, and 18. We had a great time - Daiana and Casandra and their family make you feel very much at home - it is indeed just that - a home from home and the apartments are new and beautifully presented - the pool spotless cleaned every day for 3 hours. The view from anywhere is spectacular rolling Tuscan hills and cypress trees. We will definitely be going back. The only tip I would give is a car is needed definitely to make the best of the surrounding area - 10 mins from Volterra by car, 1 hour to Pisa and 1 hour to Florence.

My wife and I travelled to Italy for the first time in May 2011 with our 2 teenagers. This was the first place we stayed and it was perhaps our favorite mostly because of the wonderful people. Cassandra was genuinely friendly, helpful, and interested in our family and our trip. We got very lost trying to find the property (never rent a car without a GPS, doh!). Cassandra had us park on the edge of Volterra and then she drove into Volterra and found us. The rooms were squeaky clean, as was the pool.

Podere Campaini was the best part of my Italian vacation last summer. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful, authentic food , chatting and dining with the other guests, the beautiful pool and the gorgeous scenery all around. And, the hostesses were incredibly accommodating and friendly. They embraced me into their warm family and I cannot wait to go back! Thank you, Daiana and Cassandra!

We returned for a short holiday at this well-run and very friendly Agriturismo farmhouse because of the package being offered that included riding in the local area and also because of the location and good quality accommodation.

The accommodation and setting were once again excellent and it was very nice to see the local area at a different time of the year.

We went riding for an afternoon. The package was organised in conjunction with Area 52 Park who looked after us very well and took us in to beautiful parts of the countryside. The horses (and guides) were patient and great fun.

The addition of riding to our holiday made the overall break tremendously relaxing and we highly recommend both Podere Campaini and Area 52 Park to provide a super holiday.

This villa is in a beautiful location and is far from main roads so very quiet. The villa has been well refurbished and has excellent and modern facilities while retaining the traditional look and feel one would expect from a villa in Tuscany.

The surrounding villages and towns are within easy reach but again not too close to retain the feeling of peace and quiet.

The owners are extremely helpful, friendly and made our stay a great pleasure.

We look forward to returning to Podere Campaini.
