Agriturismo Il Poderaccio
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We stayed for a week here in July this year with 4 adults and 3 teenage boys. The whole experience was excellent. Davide and his family have made this into a beautiful homey oasis. We had rented a car and were able to do day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, etc. and come back home in the late afternoons to relax at the pool and make delicious dinners in the well equipped suites. Nonno Pasqui picked fresh produce from his garden which we were able buy along with fresh eggs from his hens to enhance our home cooked meals.

We went on to travel throughout Italy after this week and found that nothing could beat our experience at Il Poderaccio. It was a wonderful respite after long hot days touring and kids had a place to hang out, kick the soccer ball in the shade, play ping pong and then jump in the pool which gave them the much needed freedom they wanted after touring all day.

Thanks to Davide and his family for welcoming us to share in the beauty of his wonderful home!

Baci!!

My wife and I (late 20's) spent a week here in September. Davide and his family are excellent hosts...his sweet mother was even curing local vegetables on the front porch every afternoon.

The property is just down the hill from a quaint, tiny town (San Martino alla Palma). Much more enjoyable than the actual town of Scandicci (not bad, but full of warehouses and distribution centers for grocery and fashion companies). You'll pass some of this on your way up to the property, but don't worry - much better up on the hill.

Nice, clean property with views of the Florence area. Very happy with our stay. Only suggestion would be to give the shower a few more scrubs with bleach (some minor mildew in the grout), but overall, a great experience!

We ended up spending half of our time in the Chianti region and closer to Siena, and Poderaccio served as a good base for this.

Grab dinner at Fiore up the hill, and lunch/cappuccino at Antica Pizzicheria San Martino.

Thanks, Davide!

Thanks to Davide and his family, who made our holidays the second time very special. Who likes to be near to Florence but a little bit up in the hills will enjoy this place. During the day it was very hot - therefore we relaxed at the pool. In the afternoon you can take the tramvia into Florence and see how this city will entered by the locals and the tourist move out...you get a resident feeling. We will come again...

We spend two wonderful weeks at Il Poderaccio. Davide and his family are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The view on Firenze and the surrounding hills is excellent, the pool quite big and the appartment (Scirocco) spacious and clean. Plus it's a very good starting point to see Firenze, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano... Enjoy!

Beautiful villa in a gorgeous setting outside Florence. Apartments were very well equipped and Davide was a fantastic host. The villa is close to a lovely little village with a great pizzeria and a short car journey to the tram for trips into Florence. Only slight downside for me is that you really need to have a car to get about.
