“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

The perfect location for enjoying Tuscany. Central, close to Florence but without the crowds. Beautiful setting, and the apartment had everything we needed. We had a family of 5, including 3 young children, and there was plenty of space for us. Giovanni was a great host, gave good advice as to places to eat and see, and made himself available whenever we needed him. Would definitely recommende Podere Vignola to anyone visiting Tuscany.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with family

We were two couples that spent two weeks at Podere Vignola and thoroughly enjoyed it. A 20 minute train ride to Florence from Sieci made it easy to hop in and out of Florence. It is easy to get to local attractions, dining and the accommodation was outstanding. Giovanni was a great help in arranging dinners, wine tours and suggesting locations to visit. Try the house wine, I think you will enjoy it. Great value and the only way to experience Tuscany! I will have no problem recommending Podere Vignola to anyone interested in visiting the region.

Hi,
i want to state that we were really pleased with this house. First of all, inside of the house (including: rooms, sitting rooms, the stuffs that we used, bathrooms etc.) and also the area in front of the house with its fantastic landscape were quite good than my expectations. In addition, it is not difficult to go to center from that place. I strongly suggest here with huge amount of oxygen and mountain weather, together with this wonderful house:)
And thank you Giovanni:) hope to come there again!!

Sorry I took so long to write this opinion, since I have not done anything but talk about this wonderful place with all my friends, family travel in couple, grandparents and grandchildren (hard to please everyone), but Podere Vignola has left such a mark, you will not forget any of them here.
We did not know the internet as it was, and went a little adventure.
The scenery is spectacular, the personal attention and exquisite detail of the welcome basket, have food and drink on arrival was critical, we never found a place like this, the amplitude of the rooms, clean and warm feeling to while it was just very comforting, after a long journey is appreciated. We welcome more guests see that there were already "experts" repeating, and felt very comfortable using the grill and other amenities, very independent of each other but rather close to common areas, great for children to find snails and the beautiful pool at the edge of the vineyard, which hammocks pleasant, seems an ad but I said, I'm not putting my opinion because that is always available to us, but we must not be selfish. To say that even a day we had scheduled Florence decided to stay because that is another way of living and feeling.

Room Tip: Rooms are large and well decorated and clean

It's 4.5 stars. Not quite 5. Lovely, secluded, friendly and absolutely perfectly placed to make the most of Florence, Siena and the delights of Tuscany.

Room Tip: Great ice cream shop next to the station

We're so happy to have spent 6 days in the beautiful agriturismo Podere Vignola!
It's really the best way to experience the Tuscan countryside and we loved every second of it!
The scenery is amazing as well as Giovanni is and all his family! We really felt we were their friends visiting them for a while! Such a peaceful,quiet place to relax cause you only hear the birds singing! No cars passing as it's far from the road and the village of Sieci! Only 20mins from Florence by train that you can reach easily on foot from Podere Vignola and i suggest you do it at least once even if you have a car cause the morning walk in the countryside is so relaxing and it takes only 20mins to get to the train station of Sieci!!! All apartments have a lovely terrace where you can enjoy lunch or dinner with your friends!!! You get all you need in the kitchen and if there's anything more you'd like to have Giovanni will be happy to get it for you! If it's warm enough don't miss the chance to swim in that beautiful swimming pool surrounded by vineyards!!! Amazing!!! The location is ideal for trips all over Tuscany as you're almost in the middle of it and very close to the Chianti hills!!! It's been really a lovely experience and i strongly recommend it!!! Thank you Govanni and we hope to visit you again soon!!!

Room Tip: If internet is important for you choose any apartment but Limonaia as you don't get good signal...
