“relaxing base near Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

The B&B is a beautiful working farm with great views of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and Florence. We were graciously upgraded to an apartment since we were the only ones there. The apartment was clean and comfortable but pretty basic. Although it's advertised as self-catering, it lacked a decent range of cookware and silverware to really do this, such as there was one small serrated knife for cutting veg or meat and no chopping board. Also, not sure if it really is up to the standard of a B&B since the "breakfast" options were tea and coffee and then bread, butter, and jam for toast. Maybe the addition of at least cereal (since you are given a large container for milk for drinks) would help. We arrived by car so can't comment on the distance to a train or bus station but even by car you have to go almost a mile before you come to a bigger country road that leads you to Impruneta. But it's this remoteness that lends itself to the solitude and beauty of the surrounds. Since it was February, we obviously didn't test out the pool but we imagined it would be lovely after a day of sightseeing in Florence. We would bring along some of our own kitchen items for cooking but we would definitely stay again for relaxing base near Florence.

My second stay with Mariella and Dante. Like coming home to family. Peace thrives in the amazing place. The views of Florence are unequaled. This is a working farm. Olives harvested, chickens, gardens, fruit trees, horses. Simply amazing. The local town of Impruneta has groceries, festivals, and great restaurants. A must stay if you are headed to Florence. Quick trip to wine tasting, Florence and Sienna. Simply perfect. Comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: During the summer the room closest to the pool is the coolest. The rooms on the south side of the ho...

We tried to book in here, but couldn't get in the dates we needed. They recommended another place that they were connected with. we did however visit our friends who were staying there. It was a very enjoyable evening and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The place is very nice and the view overlooking Florence is incredible. The rooms were nice and air conditioned a big plus as the temperature was around +35. I would come back and stay here no problem

I have been vacationing in Florence, Italy, and more precisely in place near Florence at this beautiful Villa. This place and the villa itself is a place where the soul speaks to the sky. Hospitality hostess, Mariella and her whole family is the key to a great holiday. The place is beautiful, the service is great, all that should be there (and kitchen and the products and kitchenware and a shower and bathroom, and air conditioning ..) and quiet and silence, which is broken only by the wind. Florence can be reached in a comfortable bus, and it is best if you have a small car.

This is the second time that we choose to stay at Mariella and Dantes lovely place in the gorgeous countryside just outside Firenze. I it difficult to explain how fantastic it is to be in a place with people that are so kind and do everything to make sure that our vacation should be the best ever. Many days we choose to stay at “home” since they have a very big pool and what could be better than to swim and have fun with the family when the temperature is close to 40 degrees Celsius. Since my kids love animals and Mariella and Dante have over 200 animals they really love to stay here. I can also really recommend to go on a horseback tour, Dante took me fare away, riding up and down the hills and finally we find our self’s at a bar…. We tie up the horses and go for a drink at the bar, well what can I tell you, I can only find one word, UNBELIEVABLE .

We took many trips to different places around Tuscany, and we went several times to the centre of Firenze, that is only 20 minutes away. Actually you can see Firenze from the House, the view from the house is really amazing you can see fare away in every direction. Many evenings when we had dinner together with the family of Mariella and Dante, Dante made home pizza in his home made stone oven, superb is the word that comes to mind. We also had a fantastic barbeque one evening and the sky was completely red going down over Firenze .

A lovely place with lovely people what more can you wish for.

Big thanks for making our vacation so perfect, love from all of us to you! And I really hope that we can come back to you next year.

We chose Podere Le Cave because of the location, and were not deceived ! The view is superb, the family really approachable and helpful for anything we needed, and very friendly. We had a taste of their own organic wine, home grown figs, and home made focaccia !
The pool, the garden, the view, all make the place perfect for relaxing, as well as a great base for exploring Tuscany. We travelled no more than an hour by car and visited as far as Sienna, San Giminiano, Monteregioni, Greve, Florence of course, all very easily.
A place I recommend for anyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday.

We were happy at this location, but we did not have contact with the owners. We would have liked to spend more time with the family, to know each other. We have learnt from other people staying in similar location that they spent time, have meals and chats with the owners. So we could find out more trhings about their culture and life. The conditions were very good, we think that more cleaness would be very welcomed and for sure we will be back again.
Thank Mariella and Dante...
