Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our break at Podere Ampella. The house has been renovated recently and the facilities were fantastic. The kids enjoyed the hugh pool overlooking the Val d'Orcia valley. We will never forget our holiday at Podere Ampella and will be back with friends next year.

Dear Paola,

Thank you for your email. We had an amazing week in casa marta. As we were driving there, we turned a corner along the road somewhere after Sinalunga and the scenery took our breath away. Every hillside seemed to grow in beauty and our anticipation increased as we neared Podere Ampella and it more than met our expectations. That first evening, as we sat outside in the peaceful garden, a small bat was flying around overhead and the sun was setting towards San Giovanni D'Asso, and we relaxed for the first time in a long time. The week was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and more. We were really impressed with how beautifully finished the rooms were. We travelled to many of the surrounding villages and ate some incredible food (I'm still dreaming of a restaurant we visited in Montalcino--the pasta with truffle sauce was unlike anything I've tasted before). The photo above is of the sunrise on our last day in the villa (it actually shows the table next door--I can tell because of the number of chairs used by a very large family!). I love the way the hills looked when covered with that hazy glow.

Mauro was very kind, he made some wonderful suggestions to us for places to see and was very kind throughout our stay. But now of course normal life resumes and we're back to working long hours. Thank you for all your help!

Best wishes,

Andrea, Holland
