We have recently returned from a wonderful family vacation in Tuscany, where we stayed at Podere Lo Spadino, which is located just outside San Gimignano, a picturesque medieval walled town and World Heritage Site. The villa, built by Maris Montagnani himself, is well-equipped, spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for large families or multiple sets of guests. The views from all the rooms are amazing, especially from the living room where the picture windows open onto a stunning view of San Gimignano, which can also be seen whilst swimming in the villa’s private pool. We enjoyed several dinners of local produce cooked on the built-in barbeque, including fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes given to us by our kind host Barbara, Maris’ daughter. We also enjoyed a traditional Tuscan dinner prepared by Barbara and her family, using home-grown or house-prepared produce. The house-cured prosciutto was the best we tasted during the entire vacation! Barbara and her family (mother, father, grandmother and brother) are always ready to help if you need anything.
The location of the villa is extremely convenient with all the major Tuscan attractions within easy reach (Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti, to name but a few), making them an easy day trip by car or (we would recommend) train to Florence and Siena.
If you are looking for exceptional accommodation close to one of the prettiest towns in Tuscany and well located for you to visit the many Tuscan highlights, we highly recommend Podere Lo Spadino
