I'am coming originally from Germany, but I live in Italy since 1976. My wife Anna and me are married sind 1979 und we have two children, who actually study at University.

We bought this house, because it was our dream: 20 years we lived in the village of Sovicille and this house was our dream: it was the best situated house of Sovicille (alone on the hill, but also near the village with all comforts) and at the same time an old house with a history, which is rooted deep in the middle ages.

We have bought this old house, where the plants grew into the cracks of the walls, in 1999, and we restored it completely with traditional materials and new (bio-) technics. The columns of the 12th century, the absolute peace of the wood, the meadow behind the house with birds, deers, sqirrels etc., which we can see: simply an idyll, in the summertime, in spring, in autumn and also in the winter. In the summertime also the pool does his contribute to relax and refresh.

Home away from home in Tuscany

My family and I rented Podere Il Sole from Bernhard last autumn. First of all, it's worth saying, Bernhard is an excellent host/holiday owner. In all our dealings, from accurate descriptions, to destination advice, provision of necessary items, and timely, helpful responses to queries, he has our full recommendation. What we saw and read was what we got, and more.
From the moment we arrived we all felt immediately relaxed and welcome. In fact, if it wasn't for the beautiful sunshine every day, we would have thought we were at home!
It was not easy for a family of six people, including four children under the age of 9 years, to find suitable holiday accommodation in Italy, but at Podere Il Sole, we found the perfect fit.
The house had everything one would have in one's own house, from kitchen utensils to bed linen. The large garden space, pool, hammocks, BBQs and other general facilities provided enough entertainment in their own right for the children (and us!) There is complete privacy, yet one lives close to all the necessary amenities in the historic, peaceful town of Sovicille: supermarket, pharmacy, playground, soccer pitch ... restaurants. Sovicille is also on the edge of a beautiful forest, with endless walking and cycling paths, and our walks regularly took us past the wonderful Trecciano winery and vineyards - Chianti on the doorstep to complement the evening's dining!
In this gem of a villa, located perfectly to visit the many beautiful Tuscan towns, like Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Montalcino, Pienza, not to mention Florence, Pisa, Perugia/Assisi, the only problem is that there is so much to do, see and enjoy within a five-mile radius of your home, you'll have to either stay longer, or make a return visit to fit everything in!

A month in Tuscany.

This year being our 40th wedding anniversary we decided to hire "podere di Sole" as a base and invite our extended family to come and join us at various times during the month of September.
Firstly the booking was made very simple by Bernhard, and all questions were suitably dealt with speedily.
Being already familar with this part of Italy, we picked this particular location because it was particularly suitable for visiting the Major Tuscan Cities, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo not forgetting Siena which was a 10 minute drive away. Also it was within 30 kilometres of the Chianti district with all it's beautiful hills, towns and villages.
If you were feeling a little adventurous, Assisi, Orvieto, and lake Trasimeno are all within easy reach.

Should you just wish to relax then the "farmhouse was ideal being situated as it is amongst woodland, close to Sovicille an old small Italian town with a very picturesque square. There is a Supermarket located there, within walking distance which had most things we required.
In the Farmhouse Bernard had left several sheets of information about emergency services local restaurants etc,and all around were leaflets telling us about the local area, so we were very well informed.
Clara who looks after the Farmhouse was at the other end of a phone so should we require her assistance she was always ready to help.
We hugely enjoyed our stay at the Podere di Sole and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in "Toscana"

Great house; wonderful pool!

...the peace and quiet of the villa, the garden, swimming pool, the living room, sat tv, internet... it all worked and was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. We took day trips to Siena, Florence, the Chianti region and the Brunello region and even Rome in our own car. So the location was also great: quiet and yet not too far from all these beautiful (but busy) places... If we come back to Italy again, this place will be on the top of our list!
