“Amazing views over the Tuscan countryside from the perfect place”

The friendly hosts of Podernuovo, Alvina & Umberto greeted us after rather an interesting drive to reach the property on very narrow roads. Make sure you get good directions as it is very easy to miss the first turn off. Awaiting us in our villa (a lovingly restored chestnut drying house), was a welcome basket containing produce sourced from the farm, including home baked bread, cherry cake and jam, eggs, walnuts, the most delicious apricots I've ever tasted and Umberto's home made wine. The villas are very well appointed and self contained. There is also a laundry downstairs. Keep in mind it is a working farm, so there are occasions when a tractor starts up early in the morning. Awesome views of the Tuscan hills can be enjoyed from anywhere on the property and there are sheep, chickens and two rare donkeys they adopted to see. Watching the sun set while relaxing by the spring is an absolute must. Umberto can recommend a lovely little Italian cafe in the village of Castel del Piano - great food. A trip to Castello Banfi Winery's tavern is another must - great 3or 5 course degustation menu with wines matched to the food. Take in a trip to a nearby abbey to listen to the monks chanting, the thermal pools at Bagno Vignoni and the lovely little town of Pienza. Pisa is a 2.5 hour drive away and it is a lovely drive through the Tuscan countryside. The town of Siena is about an hour's drive away as is Florence. Be aware that there is an extra charge for gas usage on top of your accommodation fee. Highly recommend this place.

Liked best: The amazing views over the Tuscan hills in such a relaxing setting
Liked least: The 'rustic' drive into the property and the fact that there was an extra charge for gas usage that wasn't mentioned until we arrived at the property
