Podere Vignola
Reviewed 18 June 2012

A wonderful place with perfect Tuscan flavor. Giovanni was so kind and helpful. This place is an easy ride by train into Florence. We came for a concert at the stadium in Florence and couldn't have asked for an easier way to transit in and out for our event. The pool is heavenly, set among lavender and vineyards. A bit difficult to find via GPS, but the owners kindly met us in town and lead us to the place. I would love to stay here again.

The six of us stayed only a few nights, but wanted to stay much more. We were blown away by the breathtaking landscape of rolling hills and vineyards. The house is a clean, well kept, quiet, restful place with a porch table, barbeque and swimming pool only footsteps away. All amenities were thoughtfully provided (e.g. food for late night arrivals, local wine to taste, etc.). The areas nearby have an abundance of fun activities for all different tastes (e.g. food/wine tours, lake sports, hot air balloon rides, etc. etc.) with information in different languages clearly provided in a binder in the house. A car is needed for grocery runs and to explore the nearby attractions. Florence is easily accessible by car, or an extremely cheap 15min train ride away. Giovanni, the manager, was exceptionally friendly and helpful in his recommendations and arranging horseriding lessons. Great experience, fully recommended!

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.

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
