Stay as Long as You Can: It's a Wonderful Place
Friends and family made this comfortable and well-appointed country house our base for a memorable 2-week stay. A major reason for choosing this house was near certainty that the property would be as good in person as it looked online and that everything would work. (We had trouble with the TV, but that was probably due to our ineptitude.) We not only liked the house, but just as importantly, we liked the location and the incredibly helpful instructions provided re: everything from what shops to visit in the nearby villages to how to run the washing machine. Not that we spent a lot of time at our Tuscan home--we set forth every day to visit a new hill town to discover the riches of Tuscany all around us. At night, we cooked communal dinners and shared our day's adventures. If there were anything I could change about this nearly perfect place, it would be to build a footpath to the nearest village so walking there was easier. A car is necessary, so expect a fair amount of driving depending on how you want to spend your days. It would be nice to visit again when the weather is warmer to take advantage of the yard and pool. But, the cooler weather meant fires in the fireplace and grilling outside over a wood fire. And, we never had enough time to finish reading all of the great Italian cookbooks and local guides. Next time!
A Tuscan Treasure!
For several years I have envisioned a trip to Tuscany with friends, staying at a lovely villa, , visiting nearby medieval hill top villages taking time out for lunch, a glass of wine and some gelato of course, then returning home to our place in the countryside. Well, I couldn't have chosen a better villa to make this dream come true. All seven of us fell in love with it the minute we saw it. Lolita greeted us warmly, and we certainly enjoyed the dinner she prepared and delivered to us. Believe me, after a overnight flight, and driving from the Rome airport, we were more than delighted and relieved to sit down to a delicious dinner and to start enjoying our vacation. Speaking of Lolita and food, I would highly recommend arranging a "pizza night" with her. Lolita and her mother came and prepared a lovely meal for us featuring pizza with three different toppings. We had this our last night which was a great idea.
We rented both the house and the guest house so everyone had their own bedroom which they loved. We focused on the farm to table theme. Despite the fact that it was towards the end of the season, we took advantage of what was in the vegetable garden making stuffed squash, butternut squash soup, eggplant parmesan , and many dishes involving fresh tomatoes. Of course, it was a treat to run out to garden to grab a head of fresh lettuce for the night's salad. We certainly can't complain about the weather, as it had cooled down considerably from the high temperatures of the summer. The Tuscan sun, warm but not too hot, greeted us each day. To work in all the villages we had intended to see, we got home too late each day to take full advantage of the amazing swimming pool. However, we did work in a couple of naps poolside.
Speaking of villages, we visited 14 of them.... Cortona, Assisi, Volterra, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Sienna, Orvieto, Pienza, Montepulciano, Arezzo, etc.
We had a hard time coming up with a favorite. On good advice, we took the train to Florence (to avoid the driving in the city). As "Rick Steve's disciples" we went to the Academia, the Uffizi Gallery, and followed his audio Renaissance Walk through Florence.
Another special treat for us was a cooking class at Podere Il Casale near Pienza. It was fantastic! Driving through Italy on the narrow, curvy roads presented a bit more of a challenge than anticipated even with the car's Garmin, but we returned the cars unscathed.
Wish we could have stayed longer!
Nice house and a great location
Just spent a fun week with extended family at this house, and it was everything the reviews described it as. We were there during a heat wave (it was in the 90's all week, including at night), so the pool was essential and all of us used it everyday. It's a great pool, very large and clean, with plenty of room for a big family to use. A couple caveats: the house does not have A/C and it is *extremely* warm even with fans in all the bedrooms, so be prepared for that if you're there in July and August. We enjoyed exploring many nearby towns including Sienna, Arezzo, Monte San Savino, Florence, and Lucignano, however nothing is in walking distance from the house (especially given the narrow bending roads which are dangerous to walk beside), so keep that in mind if that is something important to you. (Being able to easily walk into a town.) Lolita, the house keeper, was very kind and helpful. We hired her and her mother to make us a 4-course Italian dinner one night, which was fantastic. We also took advantage of the outdoor barbecue and bocce ball court. Overall, a great house and a great location!
Live your perfect life
We came to this amazing house to share a week with friends and family from the USA, Holland, Peru and Switzerland. We had 3 kids who took full advantage of the beautiful pool and the green space and garden.... we may have even left you a frisbee!
The adults loved the large "american" beds, the various outdoor spaces where we enjoyed aperol spritz's every night, and the pool as well. We had Lolita over to prepare wood fired pizzas for the group and explored Siena, Montepulciano and Lucignano and Monte San Savino. Such a joy. The house is fully stocked with everything you need from towels to great quality knives to countless books, and sound advice from the owners. You can't go wrong with this spot! Enjoy.
Underbart hus, vacker trädgård och toppenpool!
Fantastiskt vackert, välutrustat och bekvämt hus. Hur enkelt som helst att bara packa upp väskan och börja njuta av livet. 10 vuxna och två små barn hade gott om plats både inne och ute, även i poolen. Bra läge mellan mysiga Lucignano och Monte San Savino, nån timme söder om Florens. Hit vill man igen!
One wonderful week in Tuscany
My family of nine members recently spent a week at Podere Dadino. What a lovely home! Every comfort and need was well thought out. After a long day of sightseeing, it was a special treat for us to enjoy the beautiful pool and bask in the warm Tuscan sun.
I highly recommend this property and hope to return in the near future.
