Speaking of the beauty of Podere Salicotto is a difficult task, because we are not writers or poets. But we know well the emotions that this fantastic Tuscan territory gives us every day and that we put at the disposal of those who want to spend a few days in one of the most fascinating parts of Italy.
Charm, quiet, colors, perfumes, art, culture; the fauna with roe deer, badgers, birds, porcupines, foxes and wild boars, the sunset that lights up the old bricks and a breathtaking starry sky. A unique show that is renewed every day.
We discovered Podere Salicotto on a late summer afternoon of 13 years ago and - to say it with a joke by John Belushi in the film The Blues Brothers "we saw the light": it was the right place to realize the dream of a lifetime, open our small and cozy Bed and Breakfast. Here we decided to put our roots and open our home to travelers from all over the world.
We are in the heart of the Crete Senesi, 27 km south of Siena, 2 km from Buonconvento, a small medieval village with a train station that allows you to reach the north (Florence, Milan) or the center / south (Rome, Naples) comfortably. The position is strategic.
For us hospitality is a philosophy of life, made of care, simple gestures. The meeting is a mutual enrichment; in each of our guests we see a part of us.
The products we serve during the morning breakfast come from small local producers: pecorino, ricotta still warm, Tuscan ham. Bread, fragrant cakes and homemade biscuits, organic jams and local honey ......
Every morning, for those who decide to spend a few nights at Podere Salicotto, it will be a sweet and delicate awakening. Breakfast is served in our garden, under the pergola, from 9:00 to 10:30 every day. Guests have a fridge for an aperitif at sunset and the lounge for pleasant readings.

P. S. Attention, it can be addictive.

Ritina - "Standard" double room
With an eye to the east, you can caress with your eyes an evocative landscape that conveys strong emotions with those magnificent plays of light at dawn. You are immersed in the center of the universe and the mind begins to dream.
The name is a tribute to Silvia's mother, Ritina, an extraordinary person for her sweetness and tenacity in dealing with even the most difficult moments with an open smile and a generous heart.
