Breathtaking and Memorable Week in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 couples (friends from college) recently concluded a magical week's stay at Podere le Rondini. Nicola, Allesandra, Paola, and their family welcomed us with open arms. After a delayed flight and long journey, we enjoyed our first meal and night together on the 2nd floor porch of Paola's residence. She had lovingly prepared a meal of antipasto, pasta"pici", skewers of pork, chicken, and outrageous sausages. All the while, the carafes of wonderful, red wine from their vineyard flowed. The meal was capped with a slice of her homemade cake and a shot of Lemoncello. The accomodations at Podere exceeded our expectations! The Capacie comfortably housed six couples while a seventh stayed in an apartment tucked behind Paola's villa. Lemon and olive trees with views of Montespertoli and beyond were our landscape. Day trips to Siena, Venice, Lucca, Florence, and the lovely hilltop town of Volterra were all reachable from our villa. Although we enjoyed our travels, the underrated, charming town of Montespertoli was a ten minute drive away. Markets, food, shopping, wonderful restaurants, and evening volleyball games were all available in this modest town. When we come again, we will likely choose to spend more time reading by the lovely (and large) pool and simply taking in our surroundings. To Nicola and Paola...how can we thank you enough for your constant patience and guidance and ALWAYS with a smile! Paola, we will never forget how you prepared a Sparkler cake for us on the 4th of July and how you danced with us to Frankie Valle and the Four Seasons!! You have not only been perfect hosts, but also, role models for how one should live life. We will never forget you and our time at your welcoming villa. We truly hope to return one day soon!!

Family gathering!

  • 5 of 5
We were a large group and our host was very helpful in suggesting places to visit, the easiest way to get there as well as restaurants and so on. The villa was well furnished and every room had a fantastic view of the Tuscan countryside. Our host Nicola and his mother Poala were super. Poala cooked 2 wonderful meals for our group. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone thinking of visiting this area. You do not need to be a large group because the villa can be divided up into smaller apartments.

Podere Le Rondini

  • 5 of 5
We were greeted by our host Nicola Le Rondini and his mother Paola. Both of the couldn't have been more accommodating. The villa was lovely and our hosts were very helpful in telling us about places to visit and even making bookings for us at restaurants. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of going to Tuscany to visit Podere Le Rondini.

Perfect Stay in Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5
Podere Le Rondini far exceeded our expectations! We rented the villa for 20 family members to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for a more perfect villa, more beautiful setting or more gracious hosts than we had at Podere Le Rondini! The villa is updated, clean and spacious. The countryside is beautiful with rolling vineyards that can be seen through each window. Owners, Nicola and Paola were very attentive throughout the rental process and when needed for questions, directions or restaurant reservations. They had coffee, juice and pastries for us on our first morning since we arrived late the evening before. They prepared a beautiful dinner for us on the patio and we hired Salvatore to sing for us as we danced the night away. We created memories that will never be forgotten. This property is very central for day trips. I highly recommend that you go to this property. Search no further. In addition to the villa they also have beautiful apartments.

Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Oh where do I start.. The villa was perfect with 5 bedroom and 5 ensuite baths perfect for 5 couples traveling together. Nicola and his family were very gracious in sharing their home with us... The propery was very well manicured, clean and had a spectacular views of the Tuscan country side. The location was perfect for many wonderful day trips to Pisa, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and many more we did not have enough time to visit.. Nicola presented us with wine from his and the surrounding vinyards...Take advantage well worth the cost.. he was always available for any request, Molte grazie e baci, Nicola. Take advantage of a Tuscan dinner prepared by Nicola and his Mother, what a culanary delight. The only thing I would say was uncomfortable was there was no A/C. If you keep the windows closed during the day while you are away it is cool but at night, then welcome to Italy in June.. I would recommend this villa to all... abbiamo avuto un tempo meraviglioso con i nostri nuovi amici italiani (we had a wonderful time with our new Italian friends) thank you to Nicola and his family for the wonderful memories we will have forever.
