Podere Vignola
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Hi! We spent one week at Podera Vignola, in the Fienile appartment (the one with the wonderful sight on the landscape). We enjoyed the easy access to Firenze, the good accomodation (from the kitchen to the beds as we needed to sleep in good beds after a more difficult week in Roma), the "giant" swimming pool ("giant" is what our son of 13 years old said when he arrived) and most of all, the wonderful time we spent with Filippo (brother of Giovanni) and Diana.
Too bad that we have to work now ;-). Thank you and see you soon at Podere Vignola!
The Belgians :-)

We have just arrived back from podere vignola and couldnt say a bad word about it. The setting was amazing and the properties themselves (we stayed in 2 different apartments) were clean and comfortable. They were also rustic with great features and all the facilities you could need. Filippo and Diana could not have been more helpful and informative. They made us all feel so welcomed and at home.
We only hired a car for a few days but really you would need a car to get into town to the train station or for food supplies, although we were told to call them anytime and they would give us a lift to and from the town.
We will definately be back !!

Our family toured Europe from the United States for 2 1/2 months with the heart of the stay here. Without question it was our favorite place. We were a bit nervous because we were selecting the place on line, and often pictures look better than the place actually is. This place was the opposite for us- pictures could not capture the beauty of it. Tucked in the Tuscan hills, it is a painting. We were looking for a quiet place outside of the city to rest deeply. It captured the mystique of Chianti and Tuscany perfectly; rolling hills, Frescobaldi Vineyards, olive and fruit trees, and homes that are centuries old. The apartment was old world charm and new world convenience and cleanliness, Giovanni and Philippo are both warm and professional hosts who truly desire you to experience Italy at its best. The wine, the pool, strolling the vineyards - we savored our time in this family run place. We give the highest recommendation for Podere Vignola.

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.
