Best 2 nights of our weeklong trip in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about Podere le Rondini, but mainly Nicola, the host. The setting is absolutely beautiful, and pictures online don't do it justice. It was the perfect arrangement for our group of 15 people, where each couple had their own room & private bathroom, but there was lots of common areas, including the picturesque pool. The reviews we read about Nicola beforehand do not even amount to half the host he was. He was constantly available and the most gracious VRBO host I have ever encountered. He and his super sweet mother cooked 15 of us breakfast every morning (the best scrambled eggs I've ever had!) and set us up with transportation to/from the villa, wine tours, and a cooking class at the villa. I cannot say enough great things about Nicola and the villa. We spent 7 nights in Italy and this was by far the best experience we had all trip. Grazie mille Nicola & Podere le Rondini for such an amazing time!!!

"We had a wonderful stay at Podere le Rondini and the owners went out of their way to assist us even before our arrival. The accomodations are beautiful and the views magnificant! It is a wonderful location. We stayed with our 3 children and I would recommend it for families and also for those traveling without children. The owners go out of their way to make your stay perfect."

  • 5 of 5

"La perspective de réserver un emplacement de vacances pour trois semaines via internet, me paraissait assez risquée. J''ai beaucoup apprécié la réactivité du propriétaire Nicola à nous fournir plus de renseignements et de photos sur le lieu Podere Le Rondini.

Nous avons passé trois semaines de rêve dans cet établissement idéalement situé à une trentaine de minutes de Florence et à moins d''une heure de Sienne, Pise, Volterra, Certaldo, San Giminiano.

L''accueil de Paola, Nicola et Mario a été exceptionnel, nous nous sommes très rapidement sentis à l''aise et recommanderions volontiers cette adresse à nos meilleurs amis."

  • 5 of 5

"Comme toutes les belles choses, elles se méritent. Et si la première fois, il est préférable d''avoir un GPS pour trouver cette Pondere, ensuite c''est du 100% pur bonheur. Avec en plus de tout ce qui ne peut se voir sur des photos ou sur un descriptif complet des équipements, la gentillesse, l''amabilité, le plaisir de faire plaisir de Paula et Nicola, les adorables propriétaires de cet endroit.

Sans aucune restriction, je recommande chaleureusement cette location."
