Fantastic stay! Fantastic for families with children.

  • 5 of 5

We have just thoroughly enjoyed a couple of weeks in this amazing Tuscan apartment. It is surrounded by beautiful green hills, the view is delightful. The lake (and fishing equipment) was used everyday by our two young sons who caught fish and lizards all day, everyday. We enjoyed feeding the donkeys and watching nature at its best.

The apartment was very well equipped with nice and comfortable furniture. The kitchen made preparing meals very easy.

The hosts were always around and incredibly helpful and friendly. Our children will be very sad to say goodbye.

Although the weather was still a bit cold we enjoyed swimming in the brand new pool.

The location made getting to San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Volterra, Certaldo Alto and other lovely Tuscan villages very easy.

Thanks for having us!

Beuatiful accommodations, grat host

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and very large apartment. We stayed with a friend, and we each enjoyed a beautiful and large room with our own private bath. We took advantage of the nicely equipped kitchen to prepare breakfast and several dinners; there's a nice supermarket in nearby Poggibonsi. We were on the lower of the two floors, but, since the floor of the upper unit is cement, there is no noise to worry about. Our host Leandro was very welcoming, and everything was beautifully prepared for our arrival. Location is very near San Gimignano, and this is a good base for exploring Siena, Volterra, and the other towns of Tuscany. An excellent value, and a great place to stay.

A bit of heaven in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property, Salvia, with another couple, for 5 nights. The property is located within 10 km of San Gimignano and is easy to travel to Volterra and Siena. I recommend arriving during the daylight, as it is difficult to find the first time. The apartment is spacious and has a large refrigerator and enough cooking pans and utensils for cooking your own meals if you would like. There is a large supermarket in Poggibonsi, not far away. You do need to have a car in order to stay here. There is an outdoor eating area and a pond that has carp fishing available. There is a gated entrance and it is quite safe. There are two bedrooms and two baths, which makes it nice if you are sharing with another couple. Leandro stocks it with wine, which he charges 4 Euros per bottle. The internet worked reasonably well and the outlets were sufficient for all of the electronics we brought with us. There is a washing machine and a hangar device for drying. This is a family affair and Leandro's father greeted us when we arrived and his father-in-law was there when we left. We had an excellent stay here and highly recommend it. We would definitely stay here again. Very reasonable prices.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying at apartment Salvia where we received a warm welcome, helpful instructions on use of the many amenities and suggestons on places to visit in the area. Salvia is the best equipped lodging we have found in more than a decade of renting holiday homes in Europe. We were particularly happy to see a large refrigerator, as it cuts down on trips to the grocery store, although the "Pam" store is quite close and easy to reach using the new highway. The location at San Galgano is convenient to San Gimignano, a must-see in this area, as are Siena and Volterra, among a host of other charming towns. After a full day of touring, we enjoyed relaxing under the canopy with a glass of local wine, guide books in hand to plan our next outing. Bella! Bella!

Home in the middle of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week and it was fantastic! The owner and his family were very helpful and the apartment was wonderful. Very clean, welcoming, had everything we needed, and well maintained. It is as described except that the family who owns it went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant! We would certainly come back to stay again.

Our children had an amazing week petting the donkeys, playing on the property, and enjoying the countryside. It is in a great location for visiting hill towns and for exploring Tuscany.

Wir haben 2 herrlich Wochen im August auf Podere San Galgano verbracht. Die Wohnung (Salvia) war für uns 4 (4-köpfige Familie) ideal. Der schöne Pool wurde ausgiebig genutzt. Die Kinder haben das weitläufige Gelände (inkl. Katzen und Esel) immer wieder voller Freude erkundet. Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und kommen wieder.

Grazie tante Leandro und Doriano
