Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Relaxing break at Podere dell'Alloro with amazing hosts
A lovely, relaxing place to stay with fantastic hosts who go the extra mile. Just got back from a long week-end at Podere dell'Alloro and we had a wonderful, relaxing break. The location in the Tuscan countryside is peaceful and the views are amazing. Andy and Claire are on hand to help with transport, restaurant bookings and local information and Andy even cooked us the most fantastic mushroom risotto! Highly recommended! There's a great choice of local restaurants or if you prefer, the apartments have well equipped kitchens. Great for a relaxing break - we will be back.

Birthday celebrations
There were 8 of us staying for our good friend’s birthday celebration. The weather forecast was rain, rain, rain but the warmth of the welcome we received from the hosts (Andy and Clare) was amazing. We had 2 double bedroom apartments and a one bedroom apartment - all were really beautiful decorated, keeping them in the style with of the rustic villa. They all had large bathrooms and the kitchen area had everything you would need. We were lucky it had been arranged for the hosts to prepare breakfast for our whole 5 day stay, plus two dinners, at a very reasonable price. The food was delicious so thank you Andy for cooking for us. The views were beautiful, the swimming area was very inviting but just a bit too cold to go swimming. Andy arranged us a wine tour which was great. The local village is about a mile away, walkable. The locals are so friendly and as they know Andy and Claire nothing was too much trouble. We drove to Lucca a beautiful walled town with lots of history to it plus lots of really good shops. There are super restaurants nearby all at a very reasonable price. The whole 5 days was the most stress free holiday we have ever had, this was definitely down to the hospitality of Owners. If this was that good in a very rainy November, can’t wait to return in the summer. Many thanks to Andy and Clare for everything.

About the neighbourhood
Our neighbourhood is quiet and rural. Having said that we are very well served for local restaurants. There are three within walking distance and a further four or five within a 10 minute drive. The village of Palaia is 4km away, a 5 minute drive or half hour walk. There are all necessary amenities in Palaia, shops, a bank, a petrol station, a coffee/ice cream bar and a pub. The village of Forcoli is slightly further and has more banks, shops and a small supermarket. The nearest town is Pontedera, at 18km and has everything you would expect from a town. The nearest airport is Pisa, a 30 minute drive, which is served by Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet2 and British Airways from the UK.
Getting around
There is a bus service but it is very infrequent. Much better to have a car or at least ask the hosts to transport you to restaurants, train station, airport etc.
