Antico Podere Marciano
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We stayed in Antico Podere Marciano in May this year, we had 2 rooms. 1 for us with a baby and 1 for our friend. Our room was beautiful, with stunning view! Our friend room was also lovely, both had balconies. We drove in when it was getting dark and weren't really sure if we were going the right away as we weren't expecting a dirt road. But when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised! The location was fantastic and we could see the towers of San Gimminano in the distance. We felt really looked after. The only downside was dinner, were were expecting a home cooked meal instead we got a meal provided by a catering company. It was bellow average. So on one of the other nights we got some wine, cheese, antipasto etc. and had it in the room/on the balcony which was beautiful. Overall we would return again!

Stayed: May 2013, travelled with family

Hello and thank you for having chosen to spend your Tuscan holidays at Antico Podere Marciano, in Chianti.
I'm sorry you didn't get the chance to try our home made dinners, which we regularly prepare. It happens rarely that our cook needs an evening off and therfore have to replace his home made dishes with a dinner prepared by our catering service.
Our main objective is make our guests live an authentic Tuscan experience and hope we'll see you during your next trip to Tuscany.
Kindest regards

Spent 3 nights with one dinner. The views especially from the pool are really great. Dinner was good though a little expensive with a very good wine list. Breakfast without eggs but apart from that very good with everything you need.

Getting there is not as easy, but finding a quiet place at the very center of everything will remain a challenge. Be careful when driving home at night. When we got home from castellina, we had to break several times because of animals on or along the street.

Nicely done B&B, helpful and friendly staff clean rooms and beautiful views. The breakfast was plentiful and good, we also had one of our dinners there and it was also very good. The weather wasn't great while we were in Tuscany but they helped us find things to do, cooking class at a nearby winery, hiking excursion etc... All in all a very pleasant stay. My only real gripe is that it was simply too long a drive from the nearest towns, that said it's seclusion may be a positive for others.

Room Tip: Take the hike and winery tour with the owner's husband, it's an interesting walk through the...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and I can only say that the place was out of this world. The owner Federica has designed the place to tick all of the boxes. Truly rustic with beautiful interior design and highest quality in every way. We arrived on a motorbike after a very long day but were made very welcome. The place is a couple of miles down a dirt track but don't let that put you off. A 5 star experience. We will be back!

Very nice B&B with fantastic atmosphere, very nice view and comfortable rooms. The owners are very nice and you can really feel at home since your arrival. The hotel is located approx. 3,5 km from the main road but the view and quiet location deserves such 10 min trip. Try the dinner which is served only upon previous reservation and is very good

Beautiful place but very hard to find, there is no indication how to get there and GPS doesn't know the address. Be sure to have every detail of the road begore heading there. Rooms are very big and clean. There is no TV in the room. Everything was perfect however for me it was too far away specially when we were returning from the restaurant in the night. This is the perfect choise for people who are looking for very very calm place.

Dear Guest,
I would like to thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you could not fully appreciate the geographical location of Podere Marciano. I can state, for experience, that most guests get used and love the idea of being so much immersed in the nature after a couple of days. We'll be glad to welcome you here if you decide to get a very peaceful break. Kindest regards
