Outstanding property. Beautiful setting and unequalled views.
We very much enjoyed our stay. Barbara and family were gracious hosts attending to all of our needs. The working "farm" is lovely. Lots of grapes and olive trees. The farm products available for purchase are great. Eggs, salami, prosciutto, honey and fresh vegetables. There is a large pool that is nice and relaxing with the wonderful views. The property is ideal for 4 couples with each spacious bedroom having it's own bathroom. The views from the living room are spectacular. Better than the pictures show. Great location to explore Tuscany and Florence. A short train ride to many sights. We stayed 10 days and loved it. Highly recommended.
Wonderful host. Fantastic location.
Our host, Barbara, could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The villa was perfect for our family of seven and the location was spectacular.
Our stay at Podere Lo Spadino was fabulous! The accommodations were perfect - beautiful, spacious, well-equipped kitchen, plenty of space for 6, incredible views, ideal location. and perfect service. Barbara was amazing - she provided great recommendations for dinner, shopping, wineries and site seeing. The breakfast was delicious and Barbara made dinner for us one night (a birthday dinner complete with Torta de Nonna). The meal was amazing - the best night of our trip. I highly recommend this villa and look forward to returning. Barbara made this a trip/celebration of a lifetime. Thank you!
WOW! What a beautiful and well located villa.
We all very much enjoyed our visit to Podere lo Spadino. The house was very well equipped with full kitchen and all the needed accessories. We had breakfast each day and then ventured out into the country to visit such places as San Gimignano, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and Volterra. Our Host, Barbara, was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, wineries, and places to see. She and her family were very friendly and we had no trouble in communication. She is also a wonderful cook. I suggest you have her cook dinner one night. This is the perfect place for four couples since there are four bedrooms with their own baths. I highly recommend Podere lo Spadino,. You won't be disappointed. Gracie Barbara. God has truly blessed you.
A most relaxing, realistic and welcoming stay in Tuscany
Didn't want to share this one with anyone, as it will be hard to rebook....
We had 2 great weeks with Barbara and family in their fabulous, spacious villa 5 mins drive from San Gimi. Truly great pool, free melons and honeycomb honey from the property, with lovely home-cured ham and home-pressed oil to buy.
Yes, the villa got hot (it was August in Tuscany people!) but once we figured out how to optimise windows for the cool breezes, it was lovely. Besides, just meant we spend more time by the pool working on those tanlines.
Waking up to picture-perfect views of those towers 6 kms away, watching wild deer have their breakfast while we had ours and then deciding what to for the day. Siena or Florence? Certaldo or Volterra? Or Chianti?
Talking to Barbara and family at sunset, being given fresh eggs (gratis) by Nonna for breakfast the next day. Life does not any get better.
Was there a downside? Sure - the toaster was a bit slow, and the charcoal bbq needed a practised hand. That was about the limit of it - not exactly deal breakers :)
We will definitely be back. Mille grazie Barbara, ciao!!
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.
