“Lovely base in Tuscany, rustic apartment with shared pool”
Reviewed 12 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Had a great stay in Falco recently. The apartment is rustic and comfortable. Lovely old furniture and a small TV with only news channels in English. Wifi is good but charged as an extra.

Good bathroom. Has a fantastic terrace facing the rolling hills and is close to the shared pool. Kitchen well equipped, although only a small microwave sized oven - not a problem if you live on pasta and salad like we did.

Point to note: Falco is up a wooden staircase - would be difficult for the elderly or anyone with a physical disability. Also, a long way to carry your bags.

Poggibonsi, whilst not an attractive Tuscan town, has great supermarkets and is very well located for many of the top Tuscan sights (Florence, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano)

Finally - Fabio was a great host. Very friendly and helpful with tips about things to see, where to park etc.

Beautifully quaint apartments surrounded by amazing views of the Tuscan countryside. Lovely pool and we were the only ones in it for most of our stay. Fabio the owner was very helpful and recommended a fantastic restaurant called locanda di pietracupa (one of the best restaurants we have ever been to).
You could see the towers of San Gimigagno from the pool, which again was an amazing place to visit and you must also visit Siena. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

“A Wonderful Place to Begin a Chianti Vacation”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

people found this review helpful

For 3 weeks we rented the Falco apt from our gracious host, Fabio. The apt was one of the best furnished that we stayed in over the yrs. It had 2 bedrooms, a living space/ and dining area. The kitchen was complete and also included a washing machine. There is a private patio as well.
The pool was exceptional with plenty of lounges and great views. In fact, you can see San Gimignano in the distance. The apt is only 1.5 km from the FIRENZE - SIENA autostrada. And we were about 32 km from either historic site.
Fabio was very helpful with any info we needed including ristoranti suggestions. We would definitely return to Podere Oliveta.
