Five of us shared this villa and it was a heavenly week. Beautifully hand built property by Barbara's dad was both casual and comfortable. Beautiful views from every window! Very clean and nicely appointed rooms, bathrooms, etc. The pool was delightful after a great day of sightseeing. A great way to cool off over cocktails. And the road to the villa is a great walk in either direction for a nice workout.
The location and proximity to San Gimignano and neighboring towns was great! Luann hosts a great wine tasting less than a mile from the villa. Easy 15-45 minute day trips to Voltare, the Chianti region, etc.
Barbara our hostess was delightful. And so helpful. Great pre-trip communication starting six months out. A welcoming face upon arrival. Friendly personality always available to assist with questions, requests to purchase eggs, honey, wine etc.
This is my fifth time renting a villa in Tuscany and this property and experience was outstanding. Thank you Barbara and your parents too.
Eight good friends spent a wonderful week at this beautiful villa. The location was amazing, the views breath taking and the hospitality was exceptional.
We all enjoyed the delicious meals that Barbara cooked and enjoyed learning how many of the ingredients came from the family farm and vineyard.
I am sure we will return one day and will definitely recommend Podere Lo Spadino to our family and friends.
Many thanks again

What a truly lovely property, and lovely family! We took our mom's with us to Italy this year and wanted to make things really special for them -- Podere Lo Spadino delivered!! Perfect location, beautiful grounds, and a villa full of that unique Tuscan charm. (Everyone that has seen our vacation pictures have said the villa reminds them of the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" -- no kidding!)
Barbara and her family were the perfect hosts, always available to answer questions or for a friendly chat in the garden. On our arrival they presented us with a bottle of wine of their own vintage...and it just set the tone for what was to be a fabulous week.
We would absolutely recommend this villa to anyone looking to stay in Tuscany, and hope to go back next year.
Even though it was early spring, there were flowers in bloom and big bright yellow lemons on the trees. My Mom became fascinated with the resident turkey, which she decided to call "Francesco" for the duration of our stay; and we have many photos of him mixed amongst our vacation pictures.
We have been here 7 times and the Montagnanis feel like family to us. They make you feel comfortable right away, are very hospitable and willing to give tips or help in any way. Very childfriendly.
They are around - working - and leave their guest in peace, but are open for questions or give a helping hand. Barbara - the daughter - speaks English.
Great surroundings: lovely countryhouse built by the owner, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, a private swimmingpool overlooking San Gimignano,... Eating in the garden near bbq is possible. Parking space available.
House is well maintained and clean, all bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom.
The family grows it's own vegetables and fruits, and are very willing to share with their guests. They make their own wines, olive oil, keep bees for honey,...
If wanted you can ask the family to cook for you. The nicest meal you can imagine, all prepared with their own grown foods and herbs. Or, if you would like to learn how to prepare a proper Italian meal yourself: you can book a cooking class.
The house is located idealy for visits to Siena, Firenze, Volterra, Lucca, Arezzo and so on, or even a trip to the sea (only abt 1h30 drive!).
We recommeded the house many times to other people and are planning to go back.
Not to hesitate, the house and their owners are a gem!

We recently returned from our fourth stay at Podere Lo Spadino and once again we were made to feel like family. Twice we have stayed for a week and twice for a month. The accomodations and amenities are excellent, with large bedrooms and roomy bathrooms. The outdoor facilities are also wonderful, with a great pool, outdoor eating area , barbeque and parking. We have brought many friends to Lo Spadino and all have been very impressed. The villa is situated in a beautiful valley overlooking the town of San Gimignano - close enough that an espresso or a gelato in the evening is only a 5 minute drive away. The area is also very central for visiting dozens of towns in Tuscany, especially Florence, Siena and Volterra.
The daughter, speaks very good English and she is delightful. She is always available for information about the area as well as available to handle any needs that may arise. The family works very hard on the farm, but is always willing to share the farm experience with visitors. We have always enjoyed the wines, oils and honey they produce. We will be returning this fall for another three weeks and we can’t wait. The only difficulty we have is leaving at the end of our stay. A great family and a great experience!
A year ago I had a dream of spending time in the country in Italy and the dream came true at Spadino. My family and several friends spent two weeks at this amazing property. The property itself is everything you could want, beautiful craftmanship, clean, well appointed, comfortable and charming. The views from every window, particularly the window above the kitchen sink are breathtaking and serene. The Montagnani family are welcoming and helpful. The farm is interesting and produces tasty wines, olive oil, honey, eggs and salumi. Barbara is wonderful to work with, helpful with anything a visitor might need and a delightful person to spend time with. The property is ideally located for quick trips to San Gimignano and other surrounding towns as well as a short drive to Poggibonsi to access the train station. We had a magical evening when the family prepared a dinner for us with all their own home grown ingredients that was served outside under the stars. The food and wine were delicious. I can't think of anything thing that would make this a more wonderful Tuscan experience. I know I will return time and time again. Thank you to the Montagnani family for sharing their wonderful property with us.
