We stayed at Villa Podernovo summer 2014, and found it all very satisfying. The apartment was well layer out and the kitchen functioning. The owners were very accommodation in letting us use their BBQ to make dinner. We didn't try their breakfast, but ate in the shade of the trees instead.
The pool area is very nice, and there is a big lawn for football etc.
We very much appreciated the location with walking distance to the little village and the COOP, we also found several restaurants close by.
All in all, a very nice week.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Podernovo is an eighteenth-century a farmhouse with swimming pool near Siena that we have transformed into a cozy vacation villa. It is located in the heart of the Val di Merse, a region between the Crete Senesi and the Maremma, less known than Chianti or Val d'Orcia but perhaps even more authentic and yet to be discovered. The villa is only 3 minutes walk from the village which has all the necessary services. At the same time it enjoys privacy and is surrounded by well-kept green areas and Mediterranean woodland. The rental of the villa is ideal for families and group holidays. The individual apartments are also available for rental when the villa is not already privately rented. Villa Podernovo is also a romantic location for rustic-chic, festive weddings in San Galgano Abbey, which houses the legendary 'Sword in the rock'. The abbey is situated only 7 km from the villa and is a unique venue for weddings. This makes Villa Podernovo an ideal location for wedding celebrations and for a honeymoon. ... more less
